Buckshot is an ammunition type and ingredient used to craft engineering items in RAGE. It is the default ammunition for the Combat Shotgun and Double Barrel Shotgun. It can be bought from vendors and also found in different locations throughout the Wasteland.
While ineffective when used against ranged enemies because of the spread, this powerful ammunition is perfect for close quarters. It has a knock-back effect on the enemy and will deal a significant amount of damage even to armored targets. On easier difficulty levels it will kill any basic enemy instantly.
