The shotgun in Resident Evil 7, like in any other Ressie game, is your best friend. Finding the shotgun will make your life much easier. However, getting it is not as easy as it seems. In this article, we’ll show you how to get the shotgun in RE 7 and the location of the Broken Shotgun.
Resident Evil 7 – How to Get Shotgun
You can find the shotgun in RE VII pretty early on. A statue on the far side of the Main Hall of the mansion is holding it in its arms. However, when you try to pick it up, the door closes behind you. To solve this puzzle, you’ll have to find the Scorpion Key in the basement.
Once you obtain the Scorpion Key, head to the Recreation room and use the Scorpion Key to unlock Grandma’s room. There’s a broken shotgun just left of the door. You can put this in the arms of the statue to keep the door from closing.
Pick up the broken shotgun and head back to the Main Hall of the mansion, where you met the Bakers for the first time. Head to the statue and pick up the shotgun. Then, go to your inventory and place the broken one in the statue’s hands. Enjoy blasting through the monsters with your M37 Shotgun.
How to Fix Broken Shotgun in Resident Evil 7
Yes, you can even fix the broken shotgun. However, to do that, you’ll need to get the model shotgun. For that, you’ll have to obtain the Snake key after you kill Marguerite.
After you get the Snake key, head to the second floor of the house and the Kid’s room. Unlock the door with the Snake key, head inside and look around. You’ll see a lamp on the table. Turn it around and you’ll find a red switch. Press it, and head up the ladder. Up there, in one of the corners, you’ll find the model shotgun on a shelf. Collect it and head back to the statue. Switch the model shotgun for the broken shotgun.
Then, go find a repair kit. You can find one in a loose panel in the stairs leading up to the house. Use it to repair the broken shotgun, and you’ll get a M21. It doesn’t have as much ammo, but it deals more damage.
