The V-Packer pump-action 12-bore shotgun is Lara's best short-range weapon. While it's almost useless from a distance, the V-Packer takes out just about any enemy with one or two shots at close range. Using the Spread Cartridges shortens the weapon's already limited range, but it improves its accuracy, as the shot flies in a wider arc. The weapon's only disadvantages are its fairly short range and slow reload times.
