The Double-Barrel Shotgun is a shotgun that appears in Serious Sam: Next Encounter. It is the only shotgun that appears in the game.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The double-barrel shotgun is a side-by-side double barreled shotgun that fires a spread of pellets at a target. Both barrels at once when the fire key is hit. If a point-blank shot is achieved, it can do significant damage to anything except the largest enemies. However, the weapon is automatically reloaded after each shot, making the user vulnerable for a brief period between shots.

The shotgun has a large pellet spread that makes the weapon less effective at range.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

  • Do not use the double-barrel shotgun at long range. It will do little or no damage to an enemy.
  • The double-barrel can one-hit kill multiple weak enemies if they are clustered together. This makes it a great alternative to the Shofield Uzi Pistols or the XOP Gas Gun if ammo is tight for those weapons.
  • The shotgun can one-hit kill enemies with a medium amount of health, such as the Minor Bio-mechanoid and the Warrior.
  • This weapon is useful in a pinch against enemies with a large amount of health that are close to the player, such as the Major Bio-mechanoid, as each point-blank shot appears to be the equivalent of a rocket to the face minus the splash damage.
