Look in this house in the Village to find the Shotgun.

The Shotgun in RE8 is fairly easy to acquire (unlike some other weapons in the game). This weapon is located in the East Old Town section of the Village map. In this area there is a shack directly to the west from the East Old Town letters on your map. You can get into the shack through the balcony or crawl space beneath it. Inside this shack on the kitchen table you will find the Shotgun lying there.

Interact with the Shotgun to pick it up and add it to your inventory. Once you have this weapon you can start using the Shotgun Shell ammo in it that you’ve found throughout the map. The Shotgun is good for close range combat as it packs quite a bit of power when enemies are close by.
