Modern day shotguns have really long range despite misrepresentation in a lot of games
its senseless to have it suddenly stop doing damage
have it so past a certain range like 15m it does hit scan type of damage. individual pellets would not hit it would just be 1 flat damage if your target is within your reticle size.
cannot headshot either at that range would just register as like chest dmg.
this would particularly be viable on low ROF shotguns.
