Is there any way you can fire the bullets of the Double Barreled Shotgun one at the time?
I believe i've read once this was possible.

Not that I know of. I don't think any guns in Doom 3 have an alt fire.

Probably not, since shotguns don't fire bullets.

No.

It was an early feature that was removed. No gun in D3 has an alt fire.

The standard amunition for a Shotgun are shells. Shells dont contain a single bullet, but a bunch of tiny steel ball barings. And the ball berings can come in diffrent sizes. (Called "gauges" I believe.) 12 gauge is the standard size of shotgun shells. But specal forces groups have access to other types of amunition like .50 slug amunition. Turning the shotgun into more of an oversized Desert Eagle. (Although its .50 cal, the bullet is shaped a bit differentlly to be compatable with the shotgun.)

Gauge has to deal with the size of shells it shoots. 12guage is pretty standard, where was 8 gauge uses larger shells and 20 guage using smaller. As for the diameter of the ballbearings thats usually determined by the type of ammo. Birdshot, quailshot, and what you hear most about is Buckshot. 0,00,000 are all classifications of buckshot plus it can get even more in depth.

Then factor in slug, bean bag, tear gas, and various other rounds you can fire from a shotgun you get a very versitile weapon. Personally i have 9 rounds sitting next to my spas12. 5 buckshot 4 slot ready to be loaded. Poor zombies.

Actually, technically shells can carry anything from explosives, to chemical weapons. Ofcourse these shells are usually used in artillery pieces.
