The Shotgun is a weapon in Dead Rising. It is a powerful gun. One shot can take out several enemies. But while it is powerful at close range, it is considerably weaker if shooting at enemies from afar. The shotgun is one of the best guns to have around, as it can take out many zombies easily making it useful in escaping or clearing a path.
The shotgun can also be found at the start of the game in the middle of a large group of zombies eating from one of the corpses near the center of the Entrance Plaza, just after the mall gets overrun and the mission is to get up the stairs to safety.
