"An easy to handle shotgun. It uses 12 gauge rounds"
The Shotgun E is a weapon that appears exclusively as usable in Resident Evil Outbreak File #2 and appears in cinematic cutscenes in other Resident Evil titles. It is a Remington Model 870 shotgun, considered a well-rounded, inexpensive, dependable shotgun utilized widely by all facets of society for sporting, hunting, self defense, law enforcement and military purposes since its inception in the 1950s.
The Shotgun E appears in the first three scenarios of File #2 (Wild things, Underbelly and Flashback), and is not found in any other. It has a seven-round capacity. The Shotgun E offers a weaker firepower and a slower reload than the standard shotgun, but its firepower stays consistent at longer ranges. On the plus side, ammunition is readily available even on the harder difficulties. It is a very handy weapon for stopping zombie lions and enlarged zombie fleas.
