The Akimbo Goliath 12G shotguns are a primary weapon available in PAYDAY 2 that was added in Update #178.

OverviewEdit

Goliath 12G shotguns can be dual-wielded in the primary weapon slot for their greatly increased damage output at the cost of precise aiming, stability and the opportunity cost of being unable to use other primaries.

All akimbo weapon modifications cost 40% extra than their normal price.

SummaryEdit

Pros:

  • High damage overall
  • Reasonably high rate of fire
  • Good ammo pickup
  • Reasonably deep ammo pool
  • Good accuracy at range
  • Relatively fast reload
  • Reloads entire magazine at once, utilizes the same reload
  • High magazine size with Close By Aced
  • Decently concealable
  • Fast weapon draw/holster

Cons:

  • Small magazine size that cannot be increased via mods (Thus not saving on skill points)
  • Limited range of modifications
  • High price
  • Narrow spread limits effectiveness up close
  • No sights
  • One trigger pull fires both guns, potentially leading to ammo wastage

TipsEdit

  • These shotguns can be used lightly modded if you are going for an armor build. It can be difficult to use in a dodge build due to it's low concealment.
  • The Akimbo Goliath 12G faces competition to the Brothers Grimm 12G, with the latter being more spammable, having a higher ammo-pool and having more concealment.
  • Due to the lack of iron-sights, a laser-sight is an essential for this weapon, as with other akimbo weapons.

TriviaEdit

  • The Goliath 12G was based on the second prototype of the Crye Precision SIX12-LE modular shotgun in standalone configuration with a Magpul MVG.
  • The Goliath has a startlingly-low base Concealment despite being based on a notoriously compact and low-profile bullpup weapon system.
  • The Goliath is the second revolver-type shotgun featured in PAYDAY 2 after The Judge, and is the first one to be legitimately compatible with suppessors due to the inclusion of a gas-seal sleeve around its breech.
    • It is also the first and so far only revolver-type weapon to have a removable "magazine" and not feature any gimmick of sort during the reload process. Due to the inclusion of a double-action trigger in its design, the Goliath only has one reload animation.
