The Auto Shotgun is the best close-range weapon around. Although you may have to reload often as it only holds 7 rounds, the amount of rounds you can pump into your enemy in just a few seconds is amazing.

Benelli M4 Super is a Primary Shotgun weapon that can be purchased from and sold to Big Al's Gun Shop.

The Benelli M4 Super was one of the items available at the launch of Torn on 15 November 2004, having been introduced during the Torn City Beta. [1]

The Benelli M4 Super has a base fire rate between two to three rounds per turn and can fire seven rounds (over three to four turns) without reloading. It has a stealth rating of 2.8, tying it with the Benelli M1 Tactical for the stealthiest Shotgun in the game.

Obtaining

The Benelli M4 Super is most commonly obtained as a purchase from Big Al's. It can also be found through city finds, given as a mystery gift from the Wheel of Mediocrity, and is a possible result from paying 75 job points to use the Private Security Firm 5* special, "Open Arsenal." [2]

The Benelli M4 Super can be found as a result of the following crimes:

Shoplifting:

  • "Big Al's Gun Shop" (quantity one to two)

Burglary:

  • "Farmhouse" (quantity one)
  • "Lake House" (quantity one, requires Window Breaker)
  • "Liquor Store" (quantity one)

1,000 Benelli M4 Supers will be restocked at Big Al's after being sold out. The amount of time before a restock occurs is half the time it took the item to sell out, rounded to the nearest 15 minutes.

Benelli M4 Supers can be bought from other players through the Item Market, Bazaars, or Trades, but as Primary weapons do not stack they must be purchased one by one, making it time consuming to buy in bulk.

A high quality Benelli M4 Super with a Weapon Bonus can be obtained by opening a Medium Arms Cache. A Benelli M4 Super obtained this way can have a Damage stat up to 74 and an Accuracy stat up to 70.

Usage

Due to their relatively high stats, Benelli M4 Supers with desirable Weapon Bonuses are sometimes used by players that can afford them for general attacking, Faction Warfare, Ranked Wars, and NPC looting.

Some players use a Benelli M4 Super with the Bleed, Blindside, or Eviscerate bonuses in the opening turns of a long fight to increase damage against an opponent.

Buffs

Players can gain Weapon Experience on Benelli M4 Supers once the "CBT3870 Bachelor of Military Arts and Science" Education course has been completed. Benelli M4 Supers and all primary and secondary weapons gain a 20% damage boost from the "Firearms Expert" 10* special and an extra clip from the "Bandolier" 7* special at Gun Shops.

Benelli M4 Supers, along with all primary and secondary weapons, receive a 20% and 5% bonus to Ammo conservation from the "MTH3330 Bachelor of Mathematics" and "MTH2310 Discrete Mathematics" courses respectively. The "CBT2125 Study of Shotguns" course gives +1 accuracy to all shotguns.

The Benelli M4 Super is affected by all universal buffs such as the 1% damage boost from completion of the "BIO2350 Evolution" course or the +3 accuracy from the "Seasoned Poacher" 10* Zoo special.
