The Shotgun is a weapon in Shank. It excels in close-quarter combat, allowing the player to quickly dispose of nearby enemies. However, it has a very limited range (about half the screen).
The shotgun is best equipped if the player is surrounded, as it has a powerful knockback.
It appears the Shotgun is lever action, as Shank seems to make a lever cocking motion each time he fires. It also seems to have no receiver, a fact that would make it inoperable in reality.
