Shadow Rifle is an unlockable weapon in . It is one of the most powerful weapons in the game and can defeat most enemies with a single shot (one exception is Shadow the Hedgehog Artificial Chaos, which will take two or more shots), and can destroy a Black Arm's Tank with full powered shields from the Lethal Highway level with a mere thirteen shots.
To unlock it, the player must complete all endings in
Shadow the Hedgehog, go to "Last Story", complete The Last Way, and defeat Devil Doom. After the credits are over, the Shadow Rifle will be unlocked.
The Shadow Rifle is the only secret weapon that cannot reach a Level 2 upgrade, since all but the Last Story have two endings.
It is considered one of the most effective weapons in the game, though the Omochao Gun is sometimes considered more effective. The shots, however, are not all one-hit K.O.'s, as certain "enemies" such as ships take two or three shots.
On the left and right sides of the handle, the symbol of the Black Arms is printed/painted on.
The projectiles that are fired from the gun appear similar to a Chaos Spear.
