Shooting games, be it in third person or first person, are defined by their visual design and overall gameplay feel. It takes a lot of work to get even one aspect of the game like the weapons to look, sound and feel great. To that end, it’s the shotguns that can often stick out, owing to their simplicity and sheer stopping power. Let’s take a look at 15 of the best shotguns in gaming history.

Super Shotgun – DOOM (2016)

DOOM 2016

The Super Shotgun in Doom 1 and 2 was revered for its close range devastation and this carried over beautifully to DOOM (2016). It may not be the BFG 9000 but the Super Shotgun can rip a hole through several smaller enemies at once, besides inflicting heavy damage on bigger demons. It’s the Slayer’s signature weapon and is only getting better in DOOM Eternal with the introduction of a grappling hook.
