The Riot Gun is a shotgun in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. It is a powerful, semi-automatic shotgun with decent range and accuracy, but suffers from a slow reload speed and an insufficient amount of reserve ammunition.


The Riot Gun has 7 rounds in its magazine and 28 spare rounds initially. The maximum spare rounds amount can be raised to 42. 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 semi-automatic Riot Gun is a dependable close range weapon that will scare anyone or anything that crosses you due to its improved rate of fire."
