* The [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Comicbook/Doom Doom Comic]] pictured above has Doomguy give a loving soliloquy about his shotgun.
--> '''Doomguy''' - At this particular moment in time, I don't think I have a healthier or more deeply-felt respect for any other object in the universe than this here Shotgun.

** ''Doom (2016)'' brings the shotgun back to its BottomlessMagazines glory. Despite being the first (non-pistol) weapon you get, its decent rate of fire, as well as the mods that let you shoot [[GrenadeLauncher an explosive round]] (great for medium range engagements), or let you shoot 3 shots in rapid succession keep the shotgun a solid weapon even until the end of the game. Not enough buckshot for you? The [[SawedOffShotgun Super Shotgun]] makes a comeback as well. Unable to be modded, it can upgraded and mastered to be able to fire off ''two'' double-barreled blasts before needing to reload, able to stunlock even the largest monsters. Groovy, indeed.

* While most characters' method of RecoilBoost in ''VideoGame/NoTimeToExplain'' use a [[WaveMotionGun beam gun]] as a makeshift jetpack, The Popular Man In The World instead has a shotgun for a single high power launch.

* ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' is a fan of this, with three of its hunters wielding shotguns. Parnell has one with a rapid rate of fire and high spread that deals more damage than his rocket launcher, Abe has a long ranged one whose spread increases the faster you pull the trigger, and Torvald has one that fires its whole clip with one pull of the trigger.

In {{First Person Shooter}}s, no matter how many super-powerful weapons the player has at their disposal, many will always tend to use their shotgun.

** Still very much true for the Combat Shotgun in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', especially ones with the Explosive or Wounding legendary mods.

** The Krogan are nearly always seen wielding shotguns. It's commonly theorised by the fans that this is because they have problems seeing long-distance, since their wide-set eyes would preclude binocular vision. Understandable since they evolved as ''prey'' on the DeathWorld of Tuchanka.
