Trivia Edit

  • The Semi-Automatic Shotgun appears to resemble a Benelli M3 Super 90 with elements of a SPAS-12, such as the head shield and the forearm's design. The shotgun also contains ghost ring-sights.
  • For reloading, the player's animation loads the first shell on a dry reload through the ejection port, then pumps the shotgun and loads the rest of the shells normally.
  • In-game, the player's model does not aim though the iron sights when using ADS, instead they aim over the rear sight holding the front of the gun higher up. In real life, this would make shooting anything that's not point blank pointless.
  • Along with the Hunting Shotgun, the Semi-Automatic Shotgun was found in the files prior to it being included in The Following. The two weapons were initially created into mods from Nexus, as well as the two appearing for the Shotgun section of the Dying Light Official Game Guide.
