    I still remember the first time i made virtual bowels spill out of a badguy's torso with a close range blast of the B-42 in SoF. Blew my mind. I'm tempted to call the Mah Wha Deuce Spas 12 the de facto shotty of the current gen, while best of all time goes to the super shotty from Doom 2.

    The WSTE-M5 Combat Shotgun from Bungie's Marathon 2 and Infinity. Duel wielding 2 double barreled shotguns that stopped just about everything, got to love them. Plus, Marathon gets so little love compared to the Dooms, Quakes and Duke Nukems of the time. Also, the Galleria 1991 from Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, you can upgrade it to have 4 barrels that shoot out freaking fire! One blast and you'll kill your target and burn down half a hillside in the process.

    I was so disappointed they left out he Galleria! When it is fully customised it is probably my favourite shotgun

    RESISTANCE 3 FLAME SHOTGUN -How can you forget about this!! If you don't kill them with the first shot, they will most likely burn to death from the side effects. It even has an underbarrel flame grenade! XCOM: Enemy unknown laser shotgun -Cause shooting lasers out of a shotgun is just awesome. UT Flak Cannon -Seriously? It might not be a "shotgun", but it sure works like one.

    While not techincally a shotgun, I think the Flak Cannon from the Unreal series should deserve a special mention. With two modes of fire, primary fire sending a compacted blast of metal shards, ripping into your opponent like most effective shotguns with the added bonus of the shards reflecting off walls allowing you to gain kills around corners. However the secondary fire allowed you to fire a cannister that exploded with shards on impact allowing you to deal death by predicting your opponents moves and firing were they were about to be. Can we have a new unreal game for next-gen please epic? :D

    Considering the "spread" from contra was included, i completely agree that the flak cannon should have gotten a mention.

    No love for Borderlands 2's Swordsplosion?

    I've always like FEAR's shotgun. Rips off limbs, sends people flying. Put on slo-mo to double the fun. It's the one gun you get and never drop.
