Sporting a five-round capacity, this pump-action weapon is effective at close range and is recommended against strong enemies or groups of zombies.
The Shotgun can decapitate a zombie's head by aiming upwards while in close range. It can also destroy a zombie's torso or legs by aiming at the chest or downwards. However, this will not kill the zombie, but instead split them in half. This leaves them crawling and will still try to bite the player.
In Extreme Battle, the Shotgun is in Leon's inventory. There is a 50% chance that Shotgun Parts can be found in Sewer B2, which allows him to create the C. Shotgun.
