OverviewFound in countless games, the spread gun, or spread shot, is arguably one of the most useful and powerful weapons available in gaming. Traditionally, a player can only shoot in one, or possibly two, directions. The spread gun allows a player to cover a larger portion of the screen with fire. Not only is this effective at racking up tons of points, it can have the added benefit of making it much more difficult for incoming enemies or projectiles to reach the player. Some games allow for specific vehicles or characters to be chosen that use a spread gun as a standard weapon, but most of the time the spread gun is a hotly desired, and contested, pickup.
