Starting from Uncommon quality on up, Shotguns become coming with Upgrades that further enhance the weapon.
Special Weapons require Green Ammo in order to use. This ammo is more uncommon than White.

The stats are not the same for each gun, but all the guns in each Archetype will fall between the ranges of the Archetype.
