If you have been playing the Resident Evil series, you’ll know how important the shotgun is. Luckily, you can find it early in the game. However, if you don’t look for this weapon, you can completely miss it. That is why this guide will show you how to get the shotgun in Resident Evil 4 Remake.

If you are a new player to the game, be careful around this area since there are a lot of enemies. So, make sure that you sneak around and find an opening to reach the building where the shotgun is. With that said, let’s dive right in and get started.

Shotgun Location in Resident Evil 4 Remake

If you play the game without exploring the area, you will completely miss the shotgun. However, make sure that you head to the building located in the image above. You’ll have to sneak around the area since there are a lot of enemies.

While you can sneak here, you will have to fight some enemies to enter this house. Also, keep in mind that you’ll have to run away from multiple enemies and grab the shotgun swiftly.

Once you enter the room, you will see a shotgun (W-870) on the wall. Once you get it, you will also find a few bullets for the weapon. Since you are being chased by tons of Ganados, getting this weapon at this point will be quite useful.

It allows you to kill most early-game enemies in one hit and also push them back. Plus, you can damage multiple targets that get too close for comfort. This is a great thing since you will have to fight multiple villagers in this area.

Plus, the weapon will help you against certain bosses as well since it deals tons of damage to them. If you are having trouble against the Chainsaw Man – Dr. Salvador not Denji – then the shotgun will be crucial to defeating him.


And there you have it; that’s how to get the shotgun in Resident Evil 4 Remake. Getting the shotgun will help you out immensely since it deals a lot of damage. Just make sure that you don’t waste the ammo since shotgun ammo is a bit rarer than the handgun.
