The Striker is the first shotgun available for purchase in the Black Market. At short ranges, it can kill non-infected targets with a single blast. In the earlier stages of the game, the Striker serves as an effective close-combat weapon. At close quarters with later-stage Howler Infected, it usually takes 2-3 direct hits to kill one. However, one direct hit may knock the Infected down.

Experienced players usually do not purchase the Striker, because one chapter later, the Protecta, the most powerful shotgun, becomes available in the Black Market.

The Striker is not used by Lazrian soldiers in single player, though their Protecta's can only chamber 6 shells when used by the player.


  • Ammo Type: Shotgun shells
  • Ammo Capacity: 6 shells


  • The Striker shares a name with a real-life shotgun, although the real one is a semi-automatic drum-fed shotgun. Similarly, the advanced model of the Striker in real life is called the Protecta.
  • When reloading, the animation shows Hayden only loading 2 shells into the gun.
