The shotgun is used in Carnivores, Carnivores 2, Carnivores Ice Age, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter, and Carnivores: Ice Age. The weapon is very loud and is not the best choice for hunting herbivores at a distance, since they will usually flee at the first shot. However, this is the best weapon in Carnivores for a charging dinosaur. In Carnivores, the shotgun has six rounds, whereas in Carnivores 2 it has seven.

The Carnivores shotgun actually appears to have been repurposed into the rifle for Carnivores 2 and Carnivores Ice Age, based on the similarity between the descriptions and (to a lesser extent) the stats.

In a recent update to Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter, the ammo count for the shotgun was reduced from 14 to 10, a considerable downgrade. The reload animation returned in the update as well, albeit only seen after expending all shells and collecting a supply drop.
