To get the shotgun in Sons of the Forest, you must find it and complete various steps beforehand. We will tell you how to get the shotgun and what you should use it for.
That’s why the shotgun is so valuable: The shotgun in Sons of the Forest is currently one of the most sought-after weapons in the game. However, this is not because of its penetrating power, as the ammunition is rather rare, but because of Virginia, your NPC companion. You can gain Virginia’s trust and give her a pistol and the shotgun, which she uses to flatten all enemies and easily defend your base.

Find a shotgun in Sons of the Forest – Here’s how.
Prepare yourself: Before you can set out to find the shotgun, you need to complete a few things:
- Get the Rebreather from the north of the island.
- Get the Rope Gun.
- You need both items to get the Shovel.
In the end, you only require the shovel to get the shotgun. But the other two items are necessary to get the shovel first. Once you have the shovel, you can start right away. In the northwest of the map, a GPS signal is shown on the map with a purple dot. You have to go there now:
When you arrive at the location and take out your navigation device, it will start beeping faster and faster the closer you get to the signal. You will find a cross and have to start digging with your shovel. You will find a dead soldier carrying a shotgun. Take it from him, and you have one of the best weapons in the game.
If you pass the shotgun to Virginia, she will become an even more deadly protector for your base, able to deal with any enemy efficiently, at least after a short time of getting used to it.
