Shotgun Shells is an item in Resident Evil 2 remake. This ammunition type is only retrievable in Leon's campaign for his shotgun, W-870.


Shotgun Shells are the standard ammunition used for shotguns such as the W-870. In addition, they can not only be found at various locations in the game in units of 2, 3 or 5 rounds, but also 3 shells can be crafted by combining one Gunpowder with one High-Grade Gunpowder (Yellow) or one Gunpowder (Large) and one High-Grade Gunpowder (yellow) for 5 to 6 shells.[1]
