Double-barreled Shotgun

The Double-barreled Shotgun has the lowest magazine capacity in the shotgun family, but each round fired is just as powerful as the M1014 or Remington 870 (Flashlight). It uses the same type of round as the other shotguns, but it only holds two shells instead of eight. Because of this limitation, its generally considered one of the worst gun in DayZ. It is not entirely worthless, however; the two shells it holds may be fired almost simultaneously, which can instantly kill or seriously injure a player within 40m if pellets are used.

Since 1.7.1.2, it is now possible to combine four magazines of the same type into one M1014 magazine, and also possible to split one M1014 magazine (slugs or pellets) into four smaller magazines.

Worst shotgun in the game, ammo fill's your inventory and the long barrel makes it difficult to aim close range. Avoid at all costs.

Awful weapon, only pick up if you have nothing.

I would use it if the game handled shotgun ammuniton properly instead of dividing shells into 2 or 8 rounds "magazines" which is ridiculous.

Despite all of it's terrible characteristics, this gun can actually save you in close quarters, because it's a one hit kill with pellets (2000 dmg per, 8 pellets).

If you think about it, there is no reason to dislike this shotgun. Just carry a few pairs of m1014 rounds with you. It's not like you get penalized for changing mag types.

Fun to shoot zombies with but of little practical value.
