So a shotgun has Spread values which change the DV and AP values, and then there are also burst fire which also has the same abilities.

Would you rule that a person could fire a Medium Spread, Narrow Long Burst, from a full auto shot gun, and impose a -2 to dodge, with +5 DV and +4 AP?

Or a Wide Spread, Wide Long Burst for -9 to dodge? Or a full auto wide, wide spread for an impressive -13 dice to dodge?

If you got all the numbers added up right, which it seems like you did, that doesn't seem like a problem to me. So yes, I'd allow it.

automatic shotguns seems to have a rep for being nasty in close quarters...

Yeah, they seem to have the most range of damage ability. Any where from DV5(f) AP +6 Dodge -13 (and up to 3 targets) on wide spread wide full auto to DV 18(f) AP +2 Dodge +0 Narrow spread Narrow full auto.

Yeah, I'd allow it. Makes sense - automatic shotguns should be pretty horrible in a house to house fight. Outdoors, of course, their range is pretty crippling.

Dont see anything wrong with that.

The Recoil is going to be one insane Muther after the first burst. Unmondified recoil penalties are 2x. Get a Shock pad and a Cyberarm Gyromount.
