In the popular games Gears of War and Gears of War 2 for the Xbox 360, this is the shotgun equipped to all soldiers, COG or Locust in multiplayer. This is a widely used weapon in multiplayer and is very deadly at close range with the potential for a 1 shot kill. Although the game developers claim that this gun can counter the Chainsaw Bayonet, this is not true in many cases.
