2. RoF 1 is a single-shot weapon. RoF 2+ indicates that the weapon follows the full-auto fire rules. A RoF 3 shotgun is a full-auto shotgun, a machine gun firing shotgun shells. It follows all the normal full-auto rules, while also having +2 to Shooting and Damage that starts at three dice (for Short range) and reduces one die per range increment to one die at Long range.
