"Standard shotgun ideal for short-range combat. A high-projectile spread makes up for its lower accuracy at long range."
―GTA V description on the Rockstar Games Social Club.

The Shrewsbury Pump Shotgun is a shotgun appearing in all Grand Theft Auto games since Grand Theft Auto 2.

Design

Grand Theft Auto 2

The shotgun in Grand Theft Auto 2 is used by Special Agents and gang members if their hatred towards the player is high enough. The shotgun bears some resemblance to a Mossberg 500 with a pistol grip and no stock.

3D Universe

In Grand Theft Auto III, the shotgun's in-game model is a Remington 870, with a Police Folding Stock. While obscured in Grand Theft Auto Advance, the shotgun icon for GTA III was reused for Advance, implying the shotgun in GTA Advance is similar to that of GTA III. For Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (where it is known as the "Chrome Shotgun") and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, it resembles an Ithaca 37 with a wooden buttstock. For Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, it is an "Over and Under" shotgun. However, it functions like a pump shotgun.

Grand Theft Auto IV

In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Pump Action Shotgun is an Ithaca Model 37 Stakeout, though is based on the Auto Hardball Model 870 Airsoft variant. Its design is similar to the Stubby Shotgun. The shotgun holds eight shells, despite the real-life inspiration only capable of holding four, due to the tube's lenght.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

"One shell from this single-barreled gentleman's firearm should provide enough punch to knock anyone down."
―Description in GTA CW.

The Shotgun, based on its HUD icon, combines the general appearance of the GTA IV iteration, with the wooden detailings of the 3D Universe ones.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Pump Action Shotgun in Grand Theft Auto V is modeled after the Mossberg 590 Cruiser, with several modified parts such as the pistol grip housing that accepts AR-15 pistol grips, and the stock that accepts M4-styled stocks, which in this case, is the Magpul MOE stock. The weapon is reminiscent of the Combat Shotgun from The Lost and Damned, as both have pistol grips and features M4-styled stocks. Its pump handle features Picatinny Rails on the sides for attachments.

Performance

3D Universe

A unique quality attributed to the shotgun is that it fires several projectiles at once, and at close range two accurate spreads will destroy most non-bulletproof vehicles. The shotgun pellets can also knock down enemies. A large disadvantage with this shotgun is that the player cannot run with it. Also, the pump mechanism has a very slow rate of fire, so it cannot be used effectively against multiple enemies.

Being a powerful yet easy to obtain, it is one of the best weapons as a start-up.

Grand Theft Auto IV

The Pump Shotgun may be slow to use compared to the Combat Shotgun, but is extremely powerful. It will kill any target with one shot (even fully healthy, fully armored ones at point blank). This is a one-hit kill at close range on any part of the body.

When used, the character will take some time in pumping it before they can shoot again. This will be problematic when facing enemies with either semi-automatic or fully-automatic weapons, so it is best used for defensive purposes.

Grand Theft Auto V

Being a standard-issue weapon for the law enforcement, the Pump Shotgun has balanced stats to make it ideal for close-quarter encounters, having good damage, decent accuracy and low fire rate, as well as short range. The weapon performs very good at the early stages of the game, but it is easily outclassed by other shotguns, especially in terms of firepower.

Locations

In the 3D Universe and HD Universe, Police Cars will have a shotgun with five rounds in them, which is added to the player's arsenal once they enter the vehicle. In Grand Theft Auto IV, Police Cars will instead contain a Combat Shotgun.

General

  • Can be purchased from the Underground Gun Shops for $1,200, and each additional magazine is worth $100.
  • Members of the Russian Mafia and biker gangs will sometimes have it as a secondary weapon.
  • Used by LCPD officers, NOOSE tactical agents and FIB detectives, although the later two will rarely use it (sometimes, at least one of the four agents per vehicle will use it). It is even more rarer in The Ballad of Gay Tony, as the NOOSE and FIB will replace it in favour of the Automatic Shotgun.

Trivia

General

  • In the 3D Universe, it is possible to shoot the Pump Action Shotgun without pumping it. After shooting the Pump Action Shotgun, jump quickly and the animation of the player character pumping the Pump Action Shotgun will be skipped. In GTA: San Andreas, the player must crouch, shoot while crouching and then stand up, causing the pumping animation to be skipped, though the sound of the pump is still heard.
  • In the 3D Universe, the Pump Action Shotgun does not need to be reloaded; it just needs to be pumped.
  • In the 3D Universe, a shotgun typically fires three pellets that travel in three visible lines. In the HD universe, the shotgun more realistically scatters pellets in random trajectories, rather than rigid lines.

Grand Theft Auto III

  • The Pump Action Shotgun in GTA III is equivalent to the Stubby Shotgun in later GTA games, in that the shotgun shoots five pellets per shell, kills in one shot at close range and can destroy a car in two shots, which makes the GTA III shotgun and the Stubby Shotgun roughly the same in terms of stats.
  • In GTA III, when passing trough the mafia territory after the mission Sayonara Salvatore, the mobsters wield shotguns as well, but when they shoot at a car, which in the player will be (otherwise, they wouldn't shoot at a vehicle if the player isn't in it), the car would explode from one shot. This makes it impossible to drive a vehicle in Mafia territories.
  • In the IOS version, the player can sometimes fire multiple shots without pumping the shotgun by hitting the fire button immediately after firing. If a pedestrian is in range, auto-aim will lock onto it and the gun will fire, skipping the pumping animation. Alternatively, If a pedestrian bumps into Claude as he is pumping the shotgun, the animation will be skipped, allowing you to fire again immediately.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

  • In early screenshots and trailers for Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, the Pump Action Shotgun had the same model as the Pump Action Shotgun from GTA III, but it was later changed. It is still hidden in the files.
  • In the original PS2 version, the weapon model has a shorter magazine tube.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

  • The Pump Action Shotgun in GTA: San Andreas ejects a shell when CJ fires the weapon, which is illogical, as the shell should only come out once he pumps the shotgun after firing.
  • Before reaching "Gangster" skill level with the Pump Action Shotgun, Carl fires the shotgun without utilizing the stock.
  • If the cheat code ammo never runs out "FULLCLIP" is activated, then the pumping sound will not be heard, although the animation where CJ pumps the shotgun will still be played.

Grand Theft Auto IV

  • The Grand Theft Auto IV rendition of the shotgun bears a "MODEL No. 69" etching (alongside another reading "~ 12.GAUGE ~") which is under the other reading.

Grand Theft Auto V & Grand Theft Auto Online

Glitches

Grand Theft Auto IV

There is a glitch that if the player keeps crouching and shooting at the same time, the weapon will become automatic but more powerful than the Combat Shotgun. There is also another glitch with this shotgun, in which the player can make it fire very rapidly, all eight shells can be fired in around the same time it takes to fire two normally.
