The Shotgun is one of the secondary weapons in Metal Slug. It is represented by the icon S.


The 12-gauge rounds filled with metallic BB pellets are highly effective at point blank range, although the BB's lose their velocity after traveling a short distance and become harmless after awhile. Despite its limited ammo, it can obliterate hordes of infantry with a single shot and even destroy vehicles easily with just a few. The upgraded version has more range, at the cost of even less ammo.


A Shotgun contains 30 ammo from Metal Slug to Metal Slug 5.
