The '''Pump-Action Shotgun''' is a fairly reliable weapon that is most effective at a close-range basis, but is hardly accurate or quick.

The pump-action functions like many shotguns in the shooter genre. In ''Max Payne'' it is strong, packs a good punch at close range, and can be effective at medium distances with headshots. It shines the most in earlier levels, where a single shot can take out mobsters at close range, allowing Max to dispatch a group of them with ease. However, late in the game, several shots may be necessary to kill an enemy. The weapon is carried by many enemies early in the game, who, even on the easiest difficulty, can inflict a great amount of damage to Max in one shot. The pump-action shotgun fires a smaller blast than the other two shotguns (i.e., the sawed-off and the jackhammer), so aim is more important. The greatest weakness of the gun in the first game is its low rate of fire and potentially long reload times.

The Pump-Action is the basic shotgun that you see in pretty much
  +
every shooting game. In Max Payne 1 it is strong, and packs a good punch at close range and even surprisingly long distances. It shines the most in earlier levels, where a single shot can take out mobsters at close range, allowing Max to wipe out whole armies in seconds. In the late game, it may take two or three shots to finish off the enemies, so be warned. On&nbsp;even the easiest difficulty,&nbsp;enemies can do an amazing amount of damage to Max in one shot with this; add that to the fact that it's such a common weapon, and you've got problems. Be especially wary around shotgun users and make sure to keep moving, always. The pump action shotgun shoots out a smaller blast than the other two (the sawed-off and the jackhammer), so make sure to be at a
  +
nice close range or aim carefully at longer ranges. The greatest weakness of the gun in the first game is that it has easily the slowest reloading animation, dependent on how many shots have already been fired.

In Max Payne 2, the pump-action is lackluster in damage; however, it is still a fairly reliable weapon to use, albeit at a much closer range. The pump-action's shortcomings are&nbsp;alleviated in part&nbsp;by&nbsp;a faster fire rate and&nbsp;the bullet-time reload that allows Max to get right back into the action. The pump action makes its debut early on in the game, where it is useful for heavy-duty fights unsuited for the 9mm pistol. However, it is soon outshined in damage by weapons such as the Striker and Kalashnikove, and in range and accuracy by the MP5 and the M4.

*The Pump-Action Shotgun uses [[Shotgun Shells]] as ammo.
==Behind the scenes==
 
  +
*It holds 7 rounds in its tube magazine, and holds a maximum of 80 shells in Max Payne,&nbsp;140 shells in Max Payne 2.
The pump-action shotgun is the only weapon in the series to have a serious visual makeover between games: it appears to be a [[wikipedia:Winchester 1200|Winchester Model 1300]] in ''Max Payne'' and a [[wikipedia:Remington 870|Remington 870]] (with folded stock) in ''Max Payne 2''.
