Fits in Inventory
The shotgun is a weapon in , Dead Rising 2 , Dead Rising 2: Case Zero , and Dead Rising 2: Case West .
Dead Rising 2: Off the Record
This weapon fires a spray cone of lead pellets, making it lethal at close-quarters, but pitiful at long range. It can be combined with a
pitchfork to create the Boomstick in Case Zero and Dead Rising 2.
It is not recommended that players give the
survivors shotguns, as more often than not, the friendly AI will end up shooting Chuck as well if he ends up in their line of fire. It is a good firearm against psychopaths.
The shotgun can be found on
zombified security guards, particularly in the arena, as well as on the Silver Strip and certain areas of Fortune Park. There are also shotguns found in the gun store on the second floor of the Palisades Mall.
Main: Tap / to fire at a nearby enemy.
Ranged: Hold / to go into aim mode, then tap / or pull / to shoot at a manual target.

Dead Rising 2: Case West Zombies shot in the arm will sometimes continue to shamble as they bleed out; they will fall a few seconds later. Zombies shot in the leg will sometimes crawl towards Chuck for a few seconds then die.
The shotgun appears to be based on a Mossberg 500 Cruiser.
When Chuck equips a shotgun, he will pump it immediately.
There is a bug that prevents Chuck from pumping his shotgun, however, the pumping sound is still heard. To fix it, just fire it and re-equip it again.
