The Flechette shotgun was an upgraded version of the shotgun. The weapon was awarded to Imperial engineers for outstanding combat action. It was far more powerful than the blast cannon, since the pellets it fired were sharper and contain minor poison or electrical interferance particles (for droids); however, it expended ammunition quicker, and the pellets were slower to fire. To get this award in Battlefront II, you have to kill six enemies in one life with a shotgun. Engineer classes are the only class to be able to earn this award.
