The Claire 12G shotgun is a secondary weapon available in PAYDAY 2, and was released during the Breaking News 2018 event.

Overview Edit

The Claire 12G is, for all intents and purposes, a secondary equivalent of the Mosconi 12G, boasting very similar performance with only a few minor differences. Its chief disadvantage over the Mosconi is its noticeably lower ammo pickup, while being overall superior to its primary counterpart in every other way, allowing it to be especially powerful in close range.

Similarly to The Judge, it has high total ammo for its type, but exceptionally low ammo pickup.

See Ammunition for pellet count and damage falloff statistics.

Summary Edit

Pros:

  • Highest per-shot damage out of every shotgun in the game, tied with the Mosconi 12G, Joceline O/U 12G, Breaker 12G, GSPS 12G, and the The Judge
  • Reasonably accurate
  • Fast reloads
  • Highest base total ammo of all 155 damage shotguns
  • Capable of a very high Concealment rating when modded
    • Mods greatly decrease accuracy, allowing for a wider pellet spread
  • Synergizes well with special ammunition

Cons:

  • Tiny magazine capacity that cannot be increased
  • Second lowest ammo pickup of all shotguns, only beating the Judge
  • High recoil when modded for Concealment

Tips Edit

  • This may be one of the best guns to use with Bullet Storm, as the spread makes it easy to hit enemies, you can fire as fast as you can pull the trigger, and several Enforcer skills can improve this gun further.
  • It is highly recommended to switch to your primary when dealing with Tasers. Unless you are certain that you will be able to hit the Taser while being shocked, do not attempt to use this shotgun against one as both barrels will be emptied within a second of the taser darts connecting with your character.
  • Shotgun CQB can greatly speed up the reload process.

TriviaEdit

  • The Claire 12G was based on the Remington Exposed Hammer SxS Model 1889, as evident by its external hammers that must be cocked back after firing. It is because of this that the Claire 12G is not a break-action shotgun like the rest of its cousins.
    • The Claire 12G presumably was refitted to accept modern smokeless powder shells, as the M1889 SxS was originally designed to fire blackpowder shells only.
