- "More than makes up for its slow, pump-action rate of fire with its range and spread. Decimates anything in its projectile path."

The Bullpup Shotgun is a Shotgun in Grand Theft Auto V. The weapon is a bonus available to those who purchase either the Special or Collector's Edition and will be available for free in game at Ammu-Nation. It will also be included in the 8th gen/PC version of Grand Theft Auto V ; this time, it will be available for everyone from the Ammu-Nation store to buy with in-game currency. It will however still be free for those who bought the Special/Collector's edition of the original game.
The weapon is based on the Kel-Tec KSG. It has a 14 round ammunition capacity thanks to its dual-tube internal magazine, a moderate rate of fire, about the same as the Pump-Action Shotgun, and like most shotguns, lethal stopping power at close range. While it doesn't do as much damage as the fully automatic Assault Shotgun, it's still a fairly balanced weapon. It is available for free in the Special/Collector's edition of the game after completing the mission, Franklin and Lamar.
Basic statistics are exactly equal to that of the regular shotgun. However the Bullpup Shotgun has an higher capacity (14 instead of 8), and may be improved with a grip that the regular shotgun can not have. For this reason, accuracy is slighty better than that of the regular shotgun, when upgraded.
It should be noted that this weapon is free in GTA Online and unlocked at level 1, allowing its use much earlier than the regular shotgun. A player who has the Bullpup Shotgun can completely ignore the regular Shotgun for all these reasons.
It has less firepower than sawed-off shotgun, but a longer range, in addition to its advantages over the regular Shotgun. However it can not be used while on a bike.
However, this weapon should be replaced by the Assault Shotgun as soon as obtained, since the Assault Shotgun is almost all-round superior to it. When fully upgraded, the Bullpup Shotgun retains a slightly better accuracy, but this is negated by the much higher rate of fire of the Assault Shotgun.
- Being a rather well-rounded firearm and available after completing the second mission of the main game, it can be used to the player's advantage during missions such as Repossession or The Long Stretch.
