MetaCorp Warhammer™ Assault Shotgun is shotgun formerly created by Pancor, a small company built on one excellent product: the Jackhammer. A revolutionary weapon in many ways, advanced materials technology, rotary action, and barrel stabilization were just some of the Jackhammer's features. Unfortunately, the military was not interested.

When the Collapse came, Pancor was one of the companies destroyed by it The weapon disappeared, except for a few hundred owned by police, special-ops units, and survivalists. When Meta Corporation was formed in 2012, one of the techs from Pancor (who had been deployed to SouthAm with other Meta personnel) reapplied for a patent. The patent was approved, and the Warhammer, an improved version of the Jackhammer, was released in 2016.

The Warhammer sports a larger mag capacity, more efficient cerametal barrel, and optional smartchipping. These improvements are complemented by a wide range of ammunition types, giving the weapon impressive tactical versatility. Common rounds include #00 Buckshot (4D6+3 magnum damage), an HE round (4D6/0.5m radius per shell), and a Dual-Purpose penetrator slug (4D6+2AP, damage vs. armor is x1/2; damage vs. unarmored is x1 .5). Rounds cost 1/2/3eb per shell, and can be reloaded in the field.[1][2]
