How to determine shotgun range in Frozen Synapse?

Guessing wrong about whether or not a unit is within shotgun range has disastrous results. Is there anything in the UI that shows you what weapons range is, maybe something like the line-of-sight v hotkey?

Answer

Yes, you can use the v line of sight hot key to work out if your shotgun unit is in range.

While holding the v key, you can move the mouse to a point to test if it is in range. If it is in range, the line from the selected point to the mouse pointer will be shown as a dashed line:

Shotgun in range

If the point is not in range, then the line will appear slightly wider with a diagonal pattern on it:

Shotgun out of range
