The NS2000 shotgun possesses - as do all shotguns - complete domination in close quarters combat. Try to use this to your advantage, drawing your enemies into rooms where you can quickly finish them off. Do note, however, that although this weapon does spectacular damage, it's more suited to one vs. one encounters because of the slow rate of fire. Try and flank from behind to remove one person at a time with stealth. As a shotgun, trying to effectively use it over long distance is a lost cause without the slug attachment to greatly expand its range. Body Armour is a solid option, increasing your hit points by 25 to assist you in reaching the one-hit kill range for the NS2000. Magnum Ammo also proves to be useful for the NS2000, adding another 4.6 metres of high damage before the range decay drops below 12.5. Choosing between Body Armour and Magnum Ammo is personal choice, as both can be effective with correct usage. The extra magazine size is generally not needed.

Even though the NS2000 does possess iron sights, they are not used in-game while aiming. The aiming reticule is a fairly large circle, indicating it's large spread, so aiming at the chest will result in the most damage inflicted. With the slug equipped, the NS2000 becomes more or less a sniper rifle without a scope and no drop. Its aiming reticule changes to a cross and while aiming down sights it narrows allowing for great accuracy. The NS2000 blocks a fair amount of the screen with it odd iron sights, so beware when you pick this gun.

Overall, using the NS2000 isn't particularly good. While in function it preforms just like the SPAS-12 and 870 it's reload is nothing fancy, so your more or less handicapping yourself in one aspect where you shouldn't. It works well, but not amazing in comparison to the SPAS and 870.
