Avatar Frontiers Of Pandora: How To Get Superior Jackhammer Shotgun

Here is how you find the Superior form of the Jackhammer Shotgun and then use it to kill RDA AMPs with ease!

Jackhammer Shotgun is arguably the best weapon early in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora. I say that because of the extremely quick fire rate and high damage of the shotgun. Jackhammer Shotgun is a much better choice of weapon than any other, both to kill RDA units and their entire bases specifically. It is the best early weapon that you can get to kill off earlier enemies, especially the RDA units or soldiers in their AMP suits.

Key Takeaways
  • Superior Jackhammer shotgun is the best early-game shotgun in AFOP.
  • You can find the shotgun from an RDA crate in the Processor Area of the Extractor Plant in the Upper Plains.
  • Jackhammer shotgun has a base damage of 140.
  • You will deal +15% on your next shot after hitting an enemy on their weak spot.
  • Make sure to add the correct mods like A superior Barrel to add 12% RDA Damage in AFOP.

How Do You Get Jackhammer Shotgun

In order to get the Superior Jackhammer Shotgun, you must head to the Extractor Plant and open a crate.

  1. First and foremost, you must start the Combined Force’s main quest.
  2. The quest requires you to have a level of 12. 
  3. Head to the Extractor Plant below the Rock-Strewn River in the Upper Plains.
  4. You will have to infiltrate the base.
  5. The base is covered with RDA soldiers and has anti-turrets, so you must land your Ikran afar. 
  6. During the main quest, the quest will ask you to reach the “Processor Area.”
  7. Head there, and you will find an RDA Crate.

  1. The RDA Crate will require your SID to hack and open it.
  2.  Scan and Aim your SID at the crate.
  3. Let the outer ring align with the stationary inner ring to open a mini-game.
  4. Get to the endpoint of the maze in under 35 seconds.
  5. You will have to do it by tracing the line to the end and avoid zap.
  6. There will be these yellow zaps that you must avoid because they make you start again from the starting point.
  7. Once the zaps get blue, you move to the endpoint.
  8. With this, you will unlock the Jackhammer Shotgun. 

Is Superior Jackhammer Shotgun Worth it?

It was worth it for me since I was able to kill RDA AMPs really well with it. 

  • After getting the Shotgun, you can see that it has a base damage of 140.
  • It is a really good early-game weapon, as you can drill AMP Suits it with two shots and soldiers in one.
  • With the Storm ammo, you will deal +15 damage on your next shot after hitting the enemy’s weak spot.
  • Weapon Mods can be added to it to add 12% RDA damage to their soldiers.
  • Extra cosmetics can be added to the weapon as well. 
  • Make sure to choose the best cosmetics for the weapon. 

So this is how you get the Jackhammer Shotgun In Avatar Frontiers of Pandora. It is a really great early-game shotgun, and you must really go and get it as fast as you can. Due to the lack of hype, players on X are speaking out about how you are missing out on playing such an amazing game.
