Top 5 Shotguns in Video Games

This…is my Boomstick!

There is just something so satisfying about learning the spread and effective killing range of a shotgun.

You charge toward your enemy, finger poised over the trigger, feeling the devastating potential of the weapon steadily grow. As you get closer it's power elevates from fairly ineffectual to powerful to lethal to blood splattering overkill. BLAM! (Doom 3, Doom 3 BFG Edition, Doom II: Hell on Earth, Duke Nukem 3D, Half-Life 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I love it when a shotgun just blows apart my enemy. All the gooey, colorful chunks that just fly out on contact...

So satisfying!

hehe, ya - notice like overkill ^^

Rage has really good shotgun addon called Pop Rockets, but that was basically a mini rocket launcher and not a shotgun

The Geth Plasma Shotgun was pretty badass but it's nothing compared to the sheer destructive warpath the Claymore can dish out. It's a OHK Beast.

Is Claymore a ME3 shottie?
I don't play ME3 Multiplayer so I'm only familiar with what I encountered in single player.

I will never forget that shotgun blast to the face on the E3 demo of The Last Of Us, I would also put Halo 4's forerunner shotgun.

For me, hands down it has to be the double barrel shotgun on Hitman 2.
That deep bass sound while they're launched into the air off their feet is so damn satisfying.
