The HUD icon in GTA IV.

The Pump Action Shotgun is one of the many shotguns available throughout the Grand Theft Auto series of games.



A unique quality attributed to the shotgun is that is fires several projectiles at once, and at close range, it can disable even the most armored targets, and another advantage is that it can be purchased at most Ammu-Nation stores for a cheap price. A large disadvantage with this shotgun is that the player cannot run with it (minus in GTA Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories), and due to the pump mechanism has a very slow rate of fire, thus cannot be used effectively against multiple enemies, plus it's nearly impossible to fire at long ranges.

In Grand Theft Auto III, the shotgun's model is a Franchi SPAS-12 (which would later become a separate shotgun in the subsequent games); while obscured in game in GTA Advance, the shotgun icon for GTA III was reused for the game, implying the shotgun in GTA Advance is similar to that of GTA III. For Vice City and San Andreas, it resembles a Remington 870P. For Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories, it is an Over and Under shotgun, although it functions like a pump shotgun.

In Grand Theft Auto IV, it is referenced in-game as the Pump Shotgun and it is modeled after the Ithaca 37 "Stakeout" shotguns, with a short barrel and magazine tube, and a pistol grip, similar in design to the Stubby Shotgun. The shotgun holds eight shells, however the length of the barrel and magazine tube should only allow it to hold four.




  • Police cars usually have a shotgun with five rounds in them. Therefore, if you have a wanted level, once the original occupants have dealt with, you can steal the car, and with it the shotgun.

The Pump Shotgun can be purchased from the back-alley gun shops for $1200, and each additional magazine is worth $100. The Pump Shotgun is not available from Little Jacob. This gun, rarely used on multiplayer but extensively used on single player, is extremely powerful. It will kill most single player foes with one shot, and the most needed for multiplayer will be about 3 or 4 leg shots. This is probably a 1 hit kill at close range with a head shot. It can NOT be fired form cars.



  • Northern Gardens - Can be found over the cliff on the north side of Grand Boulevard. The shotgun is lying next to a large bush.



  • Alderney City - Can be found in the vacant lot behind AutoErotiCar.


  • The GTA IV rendition of the shotgun bears a "Model No. 69" etching (alongside another reading " ~ 12.GAUGE ~") on the magazine tube.
