The Shredder is a Heavy weapon in Gotham City Impostors. It shoots several low-damage projectiles at a rapid rate of fire, making it ideal for hitting fast moving targets as well as being quite deadly at mid- and close range. Due to the Shredder being classified as a Heavy weapon, it inflicts a movement speed penalty to any body type except for Burly and Mighty when it is active.
The Shredder has a very fast rate of fire, making it ideal for hitting fast moving targets like Speedies and Nimbles (especially if Roller Skates or Grappling hooks are involved). The Shredder's ideal usage range is mid to short range, at extreme close range it becomes too cumbersome to use and at longer ranges it will not have enough accuracy to be effective. To counteract this problem and to maximize accuracy, aim down sights when firing.
The Shredder deals 20 damage for a normal hit and 40 damage for a headshot. The Shredder has a very high ammo reserve, possessing a magazine size of 60 by default and 360 ammo in reserve, giving it a total supply of 420 rounds. This is the highest ammo reserve in the game but it is counteracted by the Shredder's relatively low damage.
