* Scrooge [=McDuck=] in the ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse tends to use a blunderbuss from his Klondike gold rush days to drive off any unwelcome quests.

* Scrooge [=McDuck=] in the ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse tends to use a blunderbuss from his Klondike gold rush days to drive off any unwelcome quests. It's usually shot in the air as a threat, but, as the Beagle Boys can testify, thieves will be shot with rock salt ammo.
** Grandma Duck also owns one for house defense. This too is loaded with salt ammo.



* Shows up once in a while in Italian stories of the ''ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse'', usually from Scrooge but sometimes from Donald, and nearly always loaded with salt shells. In one memorable occasion, a wedding saw Donald using his, and plenty of shells alongside a boombox, to ''[[OneManArmy mop the floor with a medieval army]]''.

** Scrooge used to have one-and, differently from the blunderbuss, this was usually loaded with buckshot-eventually leading to its replacement with the salt-loaded (and [[FamilyFriendlyFirearms less threatening]]) blunderbuss.

* Appears in ''VideoGame/SplinterCellConviction'', ''VideoGame/SplinterCell: Conviction'', where it can be unlocked for free via the Extras menu. It can only fire in pump-action.



* The M3 Shorty without a stock shows up as the first and most common shotgun available in ''VideoGame/RedSteel''. Per the norm, it's treated as pump-action only, and is also misidentified as the semi-auto M4, though it does have a correct reduced capacity of 6 shells and a surprisingly tight pellet spread allowing for long-range punch.



* Both a nearly-full-size 590 and a sawed-off 500 Cruiser show up in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'', as respectively the "Pump Shotgun" and "Sawed-Off Shotgun". The former is the standard shotgun of the LSPD. The latter, owing to its small size, can be used one-handed in drive-bys from a motorcycle or bus, and is given for free to Rockstar Social Club members for use in ''Online''. Bizarrely, the sawed-off has the same magazine capacity as the full-size even though its cut-down magazine should only be capable of holding two shells.

* The Mossberg 590 is available in ''VideoGame/{{Insurgency}}'', for the Security team's Breacher and Engineer classes. Surprisingly effective at long ranges, especially with slug rounds.
* The Mossberg 500 Rolling Thunder, a variant with a distinctive muzzle attachment (with a rail underneath for lights or {{lasers|ight}}), shows up as the first weapon for the Support perk in ''VideoGame/KillingFloor2''. It's fitted with a flashlight on the rail under the muzzle, and is converted to 20-gauge to give it a slightly higher capacity of 7+1 shells.

[[InterfaceScrew thus completely blocking the view of a potential target at any range where you'd bother aiming]].

* ''VideoGame/RainbowSixSiege'' with the Operation White Noise update features the "[[AKA47 BOSG.12.2]]" as a primary weapon for both of the South Korean 707th SMB Operators, primarily based on the Mossberg Maverick HS-12 with some details from the Stoeger Double Defense Over and Under. Unlike the other shotguns in the game, it fires slug rounds, taking away the spread for longer range.

Historically, double-barreled shotguns were carried not only by hunters or gamekeepers, but royalty as well, due to their elegant designs and the fact that the gentry tended to have the time to go big game hunting. In India, the double-barreled shotgun is still seen as a sign of prestige and wealth, due to use by maharajahs and wealthy British officers in tiger hunting. During the American civil war, some Confederate soldiers and cavalrymen carried double-barreled shotguns, which could practically destroy infantry if fired in volleys. Years later, in the Wild West, shotguns were issued to guards and stagecoach drivers for self-defense, earning them the nickname "coach gun." Within Sicily, sawed-off double barreled shotguns were extremely diffused and nicknamed [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lupara Lupara]] (meaning "[[MeaningfulName to use on wolves]]") due their frequent use against wolf attacks, and their use by Cosa Nostra against rivals and Mussolini's Blackshirts made them the iconic Mafia weapon. When Mafia members emigrated to America, some brought their shotguns with them or bought new ones. These quickly became a favorite with both Italian gangs and others. During the 1920s, if they couldn't obtain a tommy gun, gangster 'torpedoes' (or hitmen) [[SawedOffShotgun sawed-down the barrel and stock]] of their double-barreled shotgun to fit in [[SenselessViolins violin cases]].

* ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'' features 870s as both variations of the pump shotgun, the Police Magnum Riot replacing the High Standard K-1200 from the first game as the Pump Shotgun, while the stainless Marine Magnum also appears as the Chrome Shotgun. The Chrome Shotgun has the tightest spread among all the shotguns, making it decent at further ranges, but it deals slightly less damage per shot and fires the lowest number of pellets (eight).
