Shotgun Farmers is incredibly unique in a sense where there isn't a reload mechanic. You look for plants all across the map you are on, the plants can be used for ammo that can be used to shoot your enemies. However, one missed shot is a curse for you, as it grants the enemy the weapon you just had, so the real question is to be cautious, or to not?


Once you've purchased Shotgun Farmers, you can click on the Customize menu option to change the appearance of your character. The choices are Hat, Badge (which displays next to your name), Hair (which includes head, mustache beard and hair color), Body (male/female and outfits), Face (skin, eye and nose colors), Emotes (6 animations to choose from) and Shovel skin.

Get Started

You can then practice or head straight into a proper match with other people and bots. There are different Game Modes available which have special goals, but you will be told the goal of each match at the start of the game.

Experience and Leveling up

With each match completed, you will gain experience points based on numerous factors. As you level up, more hats and badges will become available to you. Weapons currently remain the same strength regardless of level, but the more you play, the more proficient you'll become.

The experience awarded at the end of the match are:
