Data Sources

The Pandora VX25 is a shotgun available to the Vanu Sovereignty. It is unlocked through purchase with Certification Points or Daybreak Cash.

The Pandora is the VS equivalent to the NC AF-57 Piston and TR AS16 NightHawk, a fully-automatic shotgun that sacrifices range, accuracy, and reload speed for raw damage-per-second and ease of use.

Compared to the Thanatos VE70, the Vanu standard issue shotgun, the Pandora features a higher firerate and deals more damage within 10 meters, but is punished with a far steeper damage drop-off over range, as well as more wild pellet spread and a longer reload time.
