"Slug rounds maintain a much tighter radius allowing shotguns to be used in medium to long range engagements."
— In-game description

A Slug is a shotgun ammunition type in Insurgency.

It is an optional ammo type for all shotguns that costs 2 supply units. It inflicts very high damage at all ranges, but its effectiveness at close range is inferior to buckshot.

Slug rounds require accuracy to be effective. It's not as easy to hit targets with slugs, as it is with buckshot. Accurate players will see themselves benefiting greatly from slug rounds, however.
