Cyberpunk 2077: All Shotguns Ranked Tier List | Update 2.1

Double-barreled perfection is within reach!




If you’re eager to pick up a trusty shotgun in Cyberpunk 2077, you’ll want to know where they’re all ranked in a tier list as of Update 2.1.

Shotguns are always one of the most fun weapon types in games, thanks to their satisfying power, and Cyberpunk 2077 is no exception!

In this article, we’ll rank all of the shotguns in the game from worst to best to help you choose which ones to focus on.

All Shotguns Ranked From Worst to Best – Update 2.1

Low Tier

Low Tier Shotgun

Similar to our revolver tier list, it feels almost disingenuous to have a “low tier” for shotguns. After all, they’re an amazing weapon type and one of the best in Cyberpunk 2077!

Nonetheless, these low-tier shotguns are still weaker than other shotguns you can choose, so they earned this spot.

As always, this list is from worst to best! Now, let’s look at our choices for this tier:

  • DB-4 Palica
  • L-69 Zhuo
  • DB-4 Igla
  • Carnage
  • Bloody Maria

Medium Tier

Medium Tier Shotgun

These are your middle-of-the-road shotguns, a step up from the low tier but not quite “must-have” material. Definitely fantastic until you can get your hands on some high-tier shotguns, though!

  • Alabai
  • M2038 Tactician
  • Mox
  • DB-2 Testera
  • Sovereign
  • Crusher

High Tier

High Tier Shotgun

Here we are, the high tier! These are the shotguns that almost made the cut into the coveted top 3 spots in our tier list.

  • Amstaff
  • The Headsman
  • Guts
  • Ba Xing Chong
  • Dezerter
  • VST-37 Pozhar

Top 3 Best Shotguns


The crème de la crème of shotguns, these top 3 shotguns are your go-to choices when you want to focus on shotguns!

Just like we’ve done with our tier list for revolvers and tier list for pistols, we’ll be giving the top 3 a special spotlight and telling you why they earned their spots here!

The Order Shotgun

Order – An iconic variant of the Satara shotgun, with a longer charge time. To make up for the longer charge time, though, a full charge can straight-up vaporize enemies with its insanely high EMP damage.

It can take a bit to get used to the Order’s playstyle. You have to be slower to make the most of it, due to charging times. That does make it play quite uniquely, though, and its damage is second to none!

Pozhar X-MOD 2 Shotgun

Pozhar X-MOD2 – A simply better variant of the Pozhar shotgun, with faster reloads and more uniform pellet patterns. It’s just enough of an upgrade to take the Pozhar into our 2nd spot!

Unlike the Order before it, this shotgun is all about speed. It can rapid-fire to deal with constant heavy damage, has quick reloads, and is just plain fun to use.
