See both pictues. Both times the Shotgun fired one shot at the 100% shield Assault. At the closer range it did more damage than before even though it should not change.

You can see that the Assault's damage did not change.

Are you sure it wasn't just the chance that an extra bullet would hit? Remember: shotgun shoots out 5 bullets at a 75% chance of hitting

Hey it's either 75% chance of causing 100% damage, or 25% chance of causing 0% damage. You can't cause more or less damage.

It's more like 100% chance for 3 of the bullets to hit, with a forth one only missing every 4 shots

Come on.. just test it.
Mcompany is right. it is per bullet dmg.
Have you ever seen a SG deal full dmg from long range?

At long range normally it is 1 bullet every 4 shots...

which is exactly 5 percent (shotgun's accuracy at long range) of the total bullets fired, which matches exactly what mcompany described.
