Maybe you've seen that FPSRussia video where he shows off some various 12 guage shotgun rounds. This little beauty:

Happened because I was toying around with these "Grenade" shots:

So, as a result, I can fire 4x shotgun shells (or any # of barrels you want), a single grenade round, or BOTH.
The only thing I can think to use these is because they are more psychlogical: the target sees the orange tip, but not the "buckshot" and only tries to dodge the grenade.

These are pretty simple to make. First, decide the width of pipe needed for the large ammo unit, and how long you want that barrel to be. Then, decide how many small barrels will fit inside the large barrel, and how long you want those barrels to be. Find the total length, large barrel + small barrels, and cut that length in the wide barrel width. (On mine, 2" grenade barrel + 1" shotgun barrels = 3" total. Now, glue all your small barrels together, then insert and glue into the back of the grenade barrel. Orange tape the front of the entire arangement, and put it in a coupler/bushing, and stick that on the gun, or however you want. I like couplers because then I can load the darts much more easily from the back of the barrel arrangement. You'll want to try to find the barrel length for both the "grenade" barrel and the shotgun barrels, that way, both go as far as you want them to. I'll be using this setup with my quadshot, so I know my shotgun barrels are WAY too short.

Buck and ball, eh?

I like the idea of faking someone into dodging the big grenade and then getting caught off guard by the followup darts. Problem is, you have to ensure adequate scattering at the intended ranges so that the enemy, despite moving out of the way of the grenade, still gets hit by those followup darts. But if you've gone through the effort to do that, you might as well just fire a whole bunch of small darts and skip the grenade.

Yeah, when I made this, that was kind of my thought too, so I'll most likely use the two features individually if I do use it, and if I do use it, it'll be because I want to drop the weight of longer shotgun barrels, or because using larger ammo has a gameplay purpose.
