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 Shotgun Pistol entered into service as a special side arm for the Helghast army.
The VC8 is featured as a sidearm in Killzone Mercenary. It has amazing power, but the accuracy and the three shell capacity are their biggest weakness.
- 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).
