"A devastating close range weapon, the Super Shotgun presents plenty of risk and reward."
― Arsenal description [src]

The Super Shotgun is a weapon featured in Doom (2016).

It's a traditional style double barreled, break action shotgun which holds 2 shots at a time which cannot be fired independently (unless upgraded). It's more powerful than the Combat Shotgun but requires frequent reloads due to the small capacity. Unlike most weapons, no modifications can be added to the Super Shotgun, though specific improvements can be made.

Campaign

Locations

The Super Shotgun can be found in a variety of locations. The first is a secret in the level Argent Facility. The first open location is on the way to the Argent Tower, in an elevator room with the AutoMap and where the player sees Olivia Pierce with the Argent Accumulator. The next location which seems to be the required location is in the Kadingir Sanctum, right before the Baron of Hell is introduced.

Ammunition

The Super Shotgun shares its ammo pool with the Combat Shotgun. The player can increase his max ammo cap by using Argent Cells and allocating its power to "Ammo" subsystem.
