When fired, the scrap metal spread out like a shotgun shell, although the dispersion pattern was much narrower than Napoleon's grapeshot. Scattershot was used since the earliest days of the cannon. The Hussite Wars saw the peasant Hussites use scattershot since they had limited access to cannonballs. This ammunition was still effective against Medieval [[Knight]]s, who could not block the cannonfire with their armor or shields. Indian Armies developed their own version of Scattershot, sometimes using hot coins as ammunition.
