"It's broken and can't be used."
The Broken Shotgun (壊れたショットガン kowareta shottogan ) is an item that appears in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.
The Broken Shotgun can be used to replace the M37 Shotgun in the Main Hall of the Main House to deactivate the trap allowing them to keep the functioning gun.
The Broken Shotgun is located Grandma's Room in the Main House.
- The Shotgun swapping trick is a reference to the first Resident Evil. In order to get the shotgun and leave the room, the player needed to swap the real shotgun with a broken one. Only taking the shotgun without replacing it with a broken shotgun in Resident Evil would kill Chris Redfield, but taking the shotgun in Resident Evil 7 locks Ethan inside the room the shotgun is in.
