WSTE-M5 Combat Shotgun (wAst'-em fIv) n.

DURANDAL, the rampant AI formerly of the colony ship Marathon, has this to say about the given tool of destruction:

WSTE-M5 Combat Shotgun
While going through some data I appropriated from the Marathon
(looking for design notes, of course) I stumbled across a reference
to a weapon used by Imperialist forces against the inserectionists
during the Ares Raid; July 14, 2444. (Never heard of it? I'm not
surprised!) Many years of loving craftmanship went into the design
and construction of this brutal tool of mayhem, I hope you can
appreciate that. I won't waste my time trying to explain the
loading mechanism to you  your primitive mind could never grasp
its complex nature.
