Guide to Getting the Best Cyberpunk 2077 Shotgun


One thing that CD Projekt RED did right with Cyberpunk 2077 is the variety of guns available for players to use in the game.

In addition to how many guns you get to use and have fun with, certain gun types are best fit for particular situations. Like, for example, taking opponents from afar is best done with sniper rifles, and if you want to blast your opponents to smithereens in close range, well, then you need to get yourself a shotgun.

Below you'll find all of the information on shotguns and how to get the best Cyberpunk 2077 shotgun.
