The Shotgun is a powerful firearm found in every Resident Evil game. These weapons fire several spherical metal pellets in a spread pattern, causing considerable damage to tightly grouped enemies at close range. These guns use Shotgun Shells.
The shotgun varies in power with each game but is always one of the most versatile weapons in any player's arsenal, capable of knocking over large enemies while mutilating softer targets like zombies. These weapons are popular with most players due to their high power, spread shot which requires little accuracy and knock-back abilities.
The two main drawbacks to these kinds of weapons are:
- Damage decreases drastically as distance increases, restricting usage to short ranges.
- Most shotguns come in pump-action form; requiring the user to work the action to chamber each round, thus having a relatively slow rate of fire (semi-automatic, lever action, and multiple barrel shotguns usually have a higher rate of fire).
Although the exact amount of violence incurred varies by game, the shotgun has been seen capable of blowing off heads, blasting out kneecaps, destroying torsos or even slicing entire bodies in half.
