"Fires 12 Gauge Shells. A S.T.A.R.S. custom arsenal and also Richard's favorite."
— Weapon description.

The Assault Shotgun is a weapon item in the 2002 remake version of Resident Evil.

It is available to the player in the remake of Resident Evil, and is only obtainable if the player manages to bring Richard the serum in time to prevent his death. The weapon becomes available once Richard sacrifices his life to save Jill Valentine from the Yawn or Chris Redfield from a Neptune. The weapon has a 10-round tube magazine and a small spread, useful when using it at medium range unlike the other shotgun, which has poor range because of bigger spread thus being only useful at short range.
