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


The Gatling Gun is a silver-colored weapon, with seven barrels revolving around a central shaft. Because the weapon is utilized by massive enemies like the Big Foot, it is very big in comparison to Shadow.


In gameplay, the Gatling Gun can only be found in certain Stages, like the Black Comet. They can be wielded by Big Foot-type enemies who will use them against the player.

Gatling Guns can be dropped by defeated Big Foot-type enemies 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) fires them. Holding down PSSquareButton/SNNBGAMECUBEDISCO/XboxX makes them fire continuously shots as well. As a gun, the Gatling Guns can shoot enemies from a distance (targets within range will be automatically targeted). It has as well high damage output and a long attack range, making it an ideal weapon of choice. A Gatling Gun has a total of forty shots and once those run out, it becomes useless. However, it can be reloaded with another forty shots by picking up another Gatling Gun.


  • The Gatling Gun itself does not need to be spun unlike any real life gatling guns.
