The Assault Shotgun is an unlockable weapon in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. It is a powerful, pump action shotgun with decent accuracy and range.
The Assault Shotgun is unlocked by purchasing it for [7000 XP] before a game in the character select menu.
The Assault Shotgun is pump-action and has 9 rounds in its magazine and 36 spare rounds initially. Maximum spare rounds amount can be raised to 54. When reloading the shotgun, the character will upload the shell one by one. This sequence can be stopped by firing or doing another action. When the ammo is restored with ammo boxes or stashes, the shotgun becomes fully loaded instantly.
"The gas operated, semi-automatic Assault Shotgun is top of the line in terms of durability. Quick to fire and slightly erratic, it is most effective in close quarters, especially when aimed two inches from a zombie's slack-jawed mouth."
