Should you use the Striker shotgun in the Resident Evil 4 remake? – Game News

The Striker Shotgun is one of the many shotguns you might consider using while playing Resident Evil 4 Remake. It has a large ammo capacity which means you can destroy multiple targets relatively quickly. However, compared to other shotguns you can find while playing, is it really worth it? Here’s what you need to know if you should use the Striker shotgun in the Resident Evil 4 remake.

Is the Striker Shotgun in Resident Evil 4 Remake any good?

The Striker Shotgun is similar to the Riot Gun in that it is a semi-automatic weapon. You’ll be able to fire multiple shots quickly, dealing heavy damage to any target in front of you, as long as it’s not heavily armored or a boss. Compared to the W-870, the Striker has a much higher ammo capacity, power, and rate of fire. Overall, the Striker is a superior weapon, but it lacks reload speed and isn’t as accurate. You can hit more specific targets with the W-870, even if you’re using it primarily as a close-range weapon.

The same goes for the Riot Gun compared to the Striker Shotgun. The Riot Gun has more reload speed and accuracy, but lacks power and ammo capacity and has a slower rate of fire. However, what gives the Riot Gun a distinct advantage over the Striker is that it’s better for mid-range matchups. The Riot Gun won’t replace your rifle and it doesn’t have the precise range of a pistol, but it’s still better than the Striker or W-870.

The Striker’s biggest weakness is that it takes a long time to reload. This part seems relatively slow. It makes up for it in terms of speed and raw power, and some players may prefer this when considering what type of shotgun they want to take with them. On top of that, the Striker is also much more compact than the W-870 and Riot Gun due to the compact magazine and takes up less inventory space.

The choice is yours, and the honest debate will be whether you should use this shotgun or the riot gun.
