The Shotgun is the game’s most powerful weapon. As there is only a limited amount of ammo for the gun, players tend to use it for only dire situations. To get the Shotgun you’ll first need to acquire the shovel.

How to find the Shovel

  • The Shovel lies in a cave located on the left of the snowy mountain range. But accessing this cave will require two other specialized items- The Rope Gun and Rebreather.
  • The Rope Gun can be found in a cave to the right of the crash side. The Rebreather is located in a remote cave at the top-left of the island on a river delta. Once you find these two items make your way to the cave. You’ll have to use the Rope Gun to cross the first crevasse and the rebreather to swim underwater to make it through the narrow passageways to find the Shovel. Note that all these caves are filled with mutants and we recommend going in prepared. Check this guide on How to get the Shovel for more detail.

Now that you have the Shovel use the GPS to travel to the purple indicator on the map. The Shotgun is buried in a shallow grave marked by a cross. Use your Shovel to dig out the Shotgun and GPS indicator buried with it.
