Remington 870 (Flashlight)

The Remington 870 (Flashlight) is a common shotgun, and also the only shotgun with any type of lighting fixture.

Despite a slower rate of fire when compared to the M1014, the Remington 870 has a greater raw damage output when using pellets up to 40 meters. The Remington 870 also has a slightly quieter discharge sound compared to the M1014 making it slightly harder for players to locate the shooter's position.

The Remington 870 can use the M1014's ammunition, making them extremely interchangeable both in practicality and raw damage.

This is actually a really efficient overall usable gun. Pellets are really underestimated when it comes to a fight in a town street, and in a place like Berezino or Cherno, this is your best friend. 2 Rnd. Pellets and slugs are everywhere, allowing you to really slowly drain your ammunition because you can convert these into 8 Rnd. '1014. Don't just skip this if you come across it in a Barracks, if you have room, Take it. Its a reliable secondary for the new update and with the ability to put a crowbar or hatchet on your back as well as a primary, this gives you the opportunity to still have a M16 with this as a backup.

Great weapon to use at day time or night. Is not very quiet for zed's but very quiet for players. If your smart enough you will be collecting the 2rnd for the double barrell shotgun and once you get four of those then you just convert them to full mags and chuck them in your bag. Simple, easy and plentifull amounts of ammo.

Even when switched off, the texture on the front of the flashlight is nearly white which is quite visible when surrounded by dark clothes and dark foliage. - Just something to bear in mind.

little trick for the ammunition. you can split the mag to 4 2nd rounds and then combine them again and you get a new full mag.

Great gun, flash-light is useful, fast enough fire rate, more than usable iron sights, common ammo, and seems pretty quiet when fired, would be interested to know it's player audible range.

This is a great gun for beginner night time play. Its an easy way to get great loot on a nighttime server in Cherno. The ammo is plentiful in both military spawns and in 2 round increments everywhere else. Great find especially with the mounted flashlight.
