This article describes the Pixel Gun 3D weapon. If you're looking for the same weapon in Pixel Gun World, see Simple Shotgun.

The Shotgun, formerly called the "Simple Shotgun", is a default Primary weapon introduced in version 2.0


It has a wooden pistol grip as well as a wooden pump. The barrel and base are made of silver-white metal. There is a shell ejection port on the right side. A small sight is at the end of the barrel but cannot be used. It does area damage (its pellets spread over a rather wide area).


It has decent accuracy and deals a good amount of damage. Its rate of fire and mobility are great too.


  • Use in close combat and aim for the head.
  • Switch to a different weapon if enemies get close before the reload is done, as it takes a while to reload.
  • Use it in maps where there are many obstacles. This weapon's bullets will hit enemies that won't be able to escape easily.
  • Do not hold the fire button with the shotgun unless at near point-blank range. Waiting a second before shooting again restores the weapon to first-shot accuracy.


  • Attack the users from long ranges, as the shotgun's pellets have a large spread, making this gun useless in long ranges.
  • Ambush users with explosives.

Supported Maps

Close ranged Deadly Games maps.

  • It resembles both the Ithaca Stakeout shotgun and the Maverick 88 shotgun.

  • It has been remodeled in the 10.4.0 update.
  • It has been renamed to "Shotgun" in the 12.5.0 update.
  • It is one of the first 3 weapons introduced in Pixel Gun 3D. The other two being the Uzi-Uzi and the Pixel Gun. This is one of the 2 weapons added in the first patch, the other being the Uzi-Uzi.
  • In the 13.5.0 update, this weapon received a slight buff where the efficiency was changed from 3 to 5 and was given a combat level of 3.
  • This weapon is one of the lucky few to be added into the Battle Royale game mode.
  • In very old versions of the game, the player would hold this weapon with just one hand and it would just shoot only one bullet.
