The Bazooka[1] is an object that appears in Shadow the Hedgehog. It is a cannon-type weapon usable to both enemies and the player.


The Bazooka is a long, tube-shaped gray weapon with a dark gray barrel opening and rear, a grip on the bottom and a fixed, square-shaped, digital front sight to aid accuracy while aiming. It also has a yellow stripe around the barrel and an instrument pad on one side. As per its design, the Bazooka can fire powerful projectiles.

In gameplay, the Bazookas can only be found in certain Stages. They can be wielded by GUN Soldiers who will use them against the player.

Bazookas can be dropped by defeated GUN Soldiers that wield them or released from containers. Touching them will make Shadow pick them up automatically and pressing PSSquareButton/SNNBGAMECUBEDISCO/XboxX (whether on the ground or in mid-air) while using the crosshair to aim fires them. As a cannon, the Bazooka can eliminate surrounding obstacles and enemies with an explosion from its short-ranged missiles, which will fly indefinitely if they do not hit anything. Rather powerful, it is one of the most efficient weapons in the game, but the rapidity of its shots is low. A Bazooka has a total of six shots and once those run out, it becomes useless. However, it can be reloaded with another six shots by picking up another Bazooka.
