The Shotgun is a weapon that appears in I Hate Running Backwards.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The shotgun is a weapon that serves as the secondary weapon of Sam Stone. It behaves like shotguns from other Serious Sam games, as it has a spread that makes it less effective at long range, but it can deal a lot of damage if all the pellets hit the target. The shotgun has a low amount of ammunition, which means the player should use it wisely.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

  • The shotgun is effective against medium-strength enemies, such as Gnaars, Minor Bio-mechanoids and Bloaters.
  • It is also effective against swarms of Marsh Hoppers.
  • The shotgun can be used against bosses, provided that the player can easily dodge them.
