The Riot Shotgun is a handheld weapon added as part of the Saints and Sinners update.


The Riot Shotgun is a short range weapon firing eight pellets from a single Shotgun Shell.pngShotgun Shell, which makes it difficult to hit distant targets as they can spread. As for every other firearm, used ammunition cannot be recovered. Shotgun Shells deal larger amounts of damage at close range, where more pellets may hit, inflicting Affliction Gunshot Wound.pngGunshot Wound, Affliction Bleeding.pngBleeding and a brief Affliction Stun.pngStun.

It should be noted that the Riot Shotgun has a wide spread even for skilled users. Therefore, in the hands of the unskilled, the spread greatly reduces the weapon's utility outside of point-blank range.


The Riot Shotgun is held with both hands and must be loaded with Shotgun Shell.pngShotgun Shells to be used. As with all weapons and tools, using it is done by holding the Right Right-click to take aim, then by Left Left-clicking to shoot/use.
