Shotgun pistol

The VC8 Shotgun Pistol made its first appearance in Killzone 3. It is a three-barreled secondary weapon developed by the Helghast and is manufactured by Visari Corporation, holding one shell in each barrel. Great for close combat, it lacks lethality at extended ranges.

The VC8 is also featured as a sidearm in Killzone: Mercenary

Killzone 3 Edit

The VC8 first appeared in Killzone 3's beta. 

Killzone: Mercenary Edit

Blackjack VC8

In Mercenary, the VC8 is essentially the same gun seen in Killzone: 3. While it is easily the strongest firearm, its power is offset by a weak range, poor accuracy, low ammo capacity.

The VC8 can be purchased in any of Blackjack's armories. It's cost is fixed at 5900 Vektan dollars, although it can occasionally be found on sale.


  • The VC8 Shotgun Pistol seems to be inspired by the World War II era Japanese Type 90 signal pistol but with a longer barrel.
  • Considering its short range compared to the other shotgun it can be somewhat considered to be the sawn-off shotgun of the series (at least in function).
  • The VC8 Shotgun Pistol entered into service as a special side arm for the Helghast army.
