The Double-barreled Shotgun (also known colloquially as the "Coach Gun") is a weapon featured in Red Dead Redemption.

Description

The Double-barreled Shotgun is one of four Shotguns available in Red Dead Redemption. As with the Sawed Off Shotgun, the player can double-tap the trigger button to fire both shells at once for a more powerful attack (at the cost of needing to reload immediately).

It has the tightest spread of any shotgun in-game, making it extremely useful for subduing targets. If at a far enough distance, a well placed shot to the lower leg can cripple the target without any fatal damage being dealt. During Bounty Hunting, it's possible to shoot a target at range, then move up with the Lasso for an easy Hogtie or finish the target off with ease. But, if shooting a target at point blank range on the leg, it will force him to bleed out and die from his injuries. It is not a good weapon for storming crowded areas, as it gets two shots before having to reload. It does, however, excel at hunting, where the two shells can take down nearly any beast encountered.

Acquisition

Single Player

Undead Nightmare

  • The Double-barreled Shotgun is unlocked into the player's regular inventory upon reaching rank 37.
    • The "Double-Barrel Killer" weapon challenges are unlocked at the same level. Completion of these challenges turns the weapon golden for the player.
  • Melvin Spinney always drops one when clearing the Tumbleweed hideout.
  • It can also be obtained by killing another player who has the weapon equipped.
  • One can also be obtained in the Crooked Toes hideout, part of the Liars and Cheats pack.

Trivia

  • Marshal Johnson can be seen in some cutscenes with this weapon. However, during missions, he will either have an Evans Repeater or a Repeater Carbine instead.
  • It is impossible to not gain this weapon in the mission "A Frenchman, a Welshman and an Irishman". Even if the player drags the NPC away from the door with the lasso and walks past him and avoids the shotgun, it will automatically be in their inventory once the mission is complete. However, the shotgun will remain on the ground where the NPC with it was killed.
  • This shotgun is very similar to the The Lion in Red Dead Revolver.
  • In single player, the double barreled shotgun may be the first shotgun to be obtained, but in Multiplayer, it is the last shotgun to be obtained.
  • If the player goes into Dead-Eye right before reloading, then leaves Dead-Eye and keeps doing this, the gun will have a "bottomless mag". This can be very useful in short-range combat if the player doesn't kill their enemy with the first two shots. This method can also be used with every other firearm in the game.
