Forums - Gaming Discussion - The most satisfying shotguns in games (image/giphy heavy)

For me they are in no real order.

Shotgun in Bulletstorm. Just melts enemies and a nice big boom

Combat Shotgun in Rage 2. Not a great game but the shooting is excellent. Combat shotgun has a nice weight and feel to it.

Wolfenstien the New Order. It's dual-wielding semi auto shotguns!

Turok on N64. It seems quaint now but to me at the time it felt like the only game that rivaled Doom 2 shotgun. Enemies go flying and you see the stream of blood.

Doom Eternal Super Shotgun. Powerful as all hell..erm more powerful than hell. The meat hook for grappling enemies and you can chain it.

Funny how 3 I mentioned under the same publisher but those guys know gunplay well.



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

Gnasher, Gears of War

Resident Evil 4

Bioshock

I second the Super Shotgun from Doom Eternal and would add that it kicks arse in Doom 2016 also, same for Wolfenstein The New Order and The New Colossus.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

The gnasher from Gears of War. One of the most satisfying guns I've ever used. My favorite easily.
Doom eternal Super shotgun just wrecks everything.
RE7 shotgun was so nice to use and always my go to in the game.
Halo: CE M90 is a classic. Unfortunately the rest of the shotguns in future iterations were never as good or fun to use.

Also Doom 2 and Doom 64.

Was going to say.. still one of the best/most satisfying shotguns any game.

And most iconic in FPS.

Even better in Turok was the Auto Shotgun.
