* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer'' makes fair use of these. The FirstPersonShooter ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRenegade'' had mini-Gatling armed officer for both [=GDI=] and Nod, with a few more scattered here or there on various weapons. In ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert2 Yuri's Revenge]]'' Gatlings became their own weapon, and fired a steady stream of bullets that sped up the longer the gun fired on a single target (or another nearby). These were later given to the Chinese in ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals''. One of the Chinese subfactions in ''Zero Hour'' gives them to the standard infantry, making them incredibly powerful.

* ''DefenseGridTheAwakening'''s Gun towers start out with a wimpy chaingun, but can be upgraded to a tri-barreled Gatling, then two tri-barreled Gatlings. They're also SuperEffective against DeflectorShields, and one of only three towers that can hit flying enemies.

* The second ''BattleTanx'' game introduced the Rattler, a small tank built around GAU-8 Gatling cannon, giving it considerable punch for its size.

* In ''AHDotComTheSeries'', Dave Howery's Canada-Destroying Mechs have Gatling gun arms, and enemy captain Ward has also been known to use a Gatling version of the standard plasma rifles (purely for RuleOfCool).

* ''Film/{{Dredd}}'' - Ma-Ma proves she really isn't screwing around when she has ''three'' massive gatling guns unload on Judge Dredd and his rookie partner. The combined firepower absolutely shreds an entire floor of the complex they're fighting through, along with dozens of bystanders, in one of the messiest scenes of a gorn-packed movie. Dredd and Anderson only survive by blowing a wall open with an explosive round.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Blood}} 2'', Gabriella has it as her signature weapon. The "Extra Crispy" GameMod turns the combat shotgun into a fully automatic four-barrel weapon whose barrels revolve.

** ''Unreal'' has a weird one: two three-barrel rotary assemblies intermesh in the middle, and from there the bullets come out. It's unclear how it actually works, as there are no mechanicals behind the barrels when they aren't in the intermeshing shooting area, and therefore no way to ''make use'' of the rotation of the barrel assembly to load and eject rounds. Apparently it runs on [[RuleOfCool cool]].
** ''UnrealTournament'' has a more traditional five-barreled example, with selectable rate of fire. The Pulse Gun is a minor example as well, as the primary fire comes from eight slowly rotating barrels. The firing rate is fairly low, though, so the necessity of a multi-barrel design is questionable; indeed, in following ''Tournament'' games it was redesigned as the Link Gun, a single-barrel weapon.
** ''VideoGame/UnrealTournament2003'' and ''VideoGame/UnrealTournament2004'' share the same six-barrelled minigun with selectable rate of fire and bullet type (slow with explosive bullets or fast with traditional ones), but there's a big gear behind the barrels where the loading mechanism should be, bringing back the same questions from ''Unreal''.

* ''The War Wagon'' (1967). TheWestern starring Creator/JohnWayne and Creator/KirkDouglas, who plan to rob an armored stagecoach (owned by a villainous CattleBaron) that is armed with a turret-mounted Gatling gun. Since the wagon effectively amounted to a horse-drawn tank the InvulnerableHorses trope had to be in full effect as well.

* Like their film counterparts, the T-600s in the game of ''Film/TerminatorSalvation'' carry these as standard. At a few points, you can find mounted ones, which usually means you're in for a siege.
