Ok, Took an Outlander all the way through with a shotgun as soon as I found the first one on the way to the Enclave.
Started in VETERAN mode and that stopped being fun before I made it out of ACT 1 since there simply are no really good shotguns below LEVEL 25 or so.
Used the CONSOLE to shift to NORMAL and it was still a slog. 30-50 shots to take out most BOSSES.
Finished at Level 53.
The good news is that this game I found the SOCKETER in the Bone Gallery so backtracking to have him put sockets in things I was eventually able to make a Decent Shotgun but by that time I has a full complement of summons so I rarely actually had to shot at anything.
Had a lot of fun with BANE BREATH though. Watch the health of the baddies and then breath on them and get a new little purple daemon to help in the fight.
