Conker's Bad Fur Day
In Conker's Bad Fur Day, the Shotgun is given to Conker by Gregg in the game's Spooky chapter. After Gregg learns that Conker wants to go to his ancestor's mansion, he says that Conker would need the shotgun in order to kill the "bloody undead" that will get in his way. When Conker enters the cemetery, a horde of zombies unearth themselves from their graves and advance to eat Conker. Luckily, with Gregg's shotgun, Conker can blow off the heads of the zombies. The shotgun is later used inside Count Batula's Mansion, where more zombies await Conker.
In the Multi mode, the shotgun is a pick-up weapon. When fired from a moderate distance, the shotgun makes its target fly back, but when fired from a very short distance, the upper half of the target's body will explode, causing a one-shot kill, making it one of the best weapons in Multi. The shotgun can be found in Temple and Bunker, in Deathmatch.
Conker: Live & Reloaded
In Conker: Live & Reloaded, the shotgun is used for the same purpose as Bad Fur Day, being a remake of the original game. However, due to the dual-control setup, it's much easier to aim with the shotgun, and the player is able to aim while moving, as apposed to the stop-and-aim function in Conker's Bad Fur Day. Conker can also jump while wielding it, making it easier to escape the zombies. He also notably runs much faster while holding it than he did in Conker's Bad Fur Day. Strangely, the shotgun's appearance is different than in Conker's Bad Fur Day, now resembling a Blunderbuss, a single-barreled, trumpet-shaped shotgun variant.
- When playing as an SHC Squirrel in Deathmatch in Conker's Bad Fur Day, when shooting an enemy up close, the squirrel will sometimes shout "Timber", this is likely because this phrase is meant for the Chainsaw, but since the shotgun kills the enemy in the same way, he also uses the phrase with the shotgun.
- The Shotgun is one of the only weapons that can only be used in Deathmatch in Multi.
