Comparing to the Hunting Shotgun, it has a higher rate of fire and a lower firepower and value, while both still maintain the same amount of accuracy. Comparing to the Double-Barrel Shotgun, the Semi-Automatic Shotgun contains a lower firepower and value will both still have the same accuracy and rate of fire.

There are five variants of the Semi-Automatic Shotgun available in The Following.
Weapon Stats Edit
|Rate of Fire||30|
- 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.
