The S1897 is a shotgun in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. The shotgun requires the 12 Gauge ammo to fire, it is a single fire pump action shotgun.


The S1897, or Winchester Model 1897 is a pump action shotgun developed by John Browning and started production in 1897. It holds 5 12 gauge shells. During the Philippine-American War and the first World War, the shotgun was issued to American soldiers. It proved to be effective at clearing out trenches, so much so that Germany protested it's use in the war.


One of the best shotguns in the game, this classic pump action shotgun gets the dirty work done. With up to 5 rounds stored in the gun, it can kill unhelmeted players with one-shot (With headshots), and ammo is common.

Rating: 7.8/10


  • Choke is recommended in Miramar. The large, open desert landscape means you'll probably find yourself in longer range firefights, so the shots will need to be more condensed.
