R2DA Wiki

"Some people believe this shotgun is not worth acquiring, due to the fact that it only holds up to two shots at once; but little do they know, capacity does not equal power. Not to mention how cool it sounds!"


This weapon is considered by many to be the first weapon you should buy. It may seem weak as a Primary, but its ability to instantly kill any mob except for a Brute makes this a reliable and cost-effective gun. The only thing to watch out for is that after two shots you have to reload.

The optional Double Fire Attachment makes this gun even more powerful. A single blast is enough to kill most people instantly in Free For All.

Background Story

L-Brain Sidework opted to create a staple in apocalypse survival. Their previous projects were used as lessons, and something as simple as a Double-Barreled Shotgun should be an easy weapon to master production on. Not only was it an easy weapon to mass-produce, it was also a simple entry-level gun for survivors to handle. Many survivors reminisce about the time when video games involved zombies, with the DB shotgun being one of the most iconic weapons of the apocalypse. Now they could finally experience the apocalypse for real!

For a small fee, new survivors can get taught by L-Brain Sidework themselves on how to use this weapon effectively to get ahead of the game. Those who pass the class are allowed approval to directly use this weapon on the field without needing to purchase it beforehand.


  • As it is a shotgun, this is especially effective at close range.
    • It's very useful against an Edgar or a Leaper who might be attacking you.
    • Be careful when you're using this around a Ticker.
      • A badly timed shot can explode the tanks on its back, which may cause fatal or near-fatal damage to you.
  • Using Double Fire really requires you to get up close and personal with mobs to take full advantage of the damage.
    • If the close distance makes you uncomfortable, then this Attachment isn't for you.
      • However, the increased pellet count indirectly increases effective range, with its increased likelihood of landing several, possibly lethal, pellets. 
        • This tactic still sparsely lands enough pellets to kill mobs around and above 200 HP at longer ranges. Don't try to rely on it for attacking at said distance.
  • If you plan on using this to take down a Brute, try to sneak up on it to deal as much damage as possible while still remaining alive. You'll also benefit if you aim for the head.
    • But be careful because once you unload your two shots you'll have nothing but your Punch and Kick plus your secondary to avoid going through the laborious reload.
  • You can unlock this weapon early through the Starter Pack and skip the Rank 2 requirement.
  • Armors that give extra mags only give what is stated, ignoring the three extra shells perk for other shotguns. 
    • This makes the shotgun have a net loss of one shell compared to other shotgun's +three shells.
  • The DB Shotgun with the Double Fire attachment is very useful in pvp modes such as Team Deathmatch, due to the high damage dealt point blank.
