I am also contributing to BenjiG91's Calradia Awakens mod where you are empowered by a whole magical arsenal! Check it out, guys!


MB2Shotgun enables you to shoot arrows and crossbows like a shotgun. 

Several unique weapons are added to Companions' dialog that can be equipped by both the player and companions.

Because the method AddCustomMissile() creates arrows with no weapon damage taken into account. If you are using the default bow and crossbow ammo which have damage 0, Taleworld has programmed it to be ignored as the net damage output is 0. Please use special ammo with >0 damage. If you don't have that ammunition, then set "ShotgunBounusDamage" to values like 50 in the .\MB2Shotgun\settings\CheatLogicSettings.xml.

[ - Openbrace: toggle the shotgun feature in battle.
You should be able to see a message displayed in the battle console that says it is enabled. You will need to toggle it every time a battle start. By default, the feature is disabled. You can change the value "ShotgunFeature" to "true" to enable this feature by default each time entering a battle.

Setting file:

Feel free to modify the setting in that .xml file.

Feel free to disassemble my code and check how it is implemented. It could be useful in implementing the demon archer from the popular mod "潘德的预言 (Prophesy of Pendor)" in MB1.
