Area Effect Shotguns
When you fire a shotgun at a target less than five yards away, you may make a second attack against anyone standing within two yards of the target as a reflexive action. These secondary attacks use one half the dice pool of your basic attack pool (Dexterity + Firearms + Damage), and does not expend ammo. In effect, you’re rolling an extra attack for the “scatter effect” of the shotgun pellets. If you spent Willpower on the attack or received any other situational bonus, they apply only to the initial attack-do not add them to the secondary attacks and do not include them in the base dice pool when you divide it in half. Rationale: This one is more of a video game trope than cinema, but the shotgun being able to hit more than one person at a fairly close range has become a common conceit of fiction.
