|M45D Tactical Shotgun|
|Damage Per Hit||
8 Gauge shells
|Rate of Fire||
The shotgun returns from previous Halo games to Halo 4. It appears to have a higher rate of fire, along with greater damage, but the range seems to have been decreased. The design is consistent with 343 Industries' mandate that all Halo 4 weapons will have a sci-fi look. It uses a 6 round magazine, much like the M45 Tactical Shotgun from Halo: Reach. It could be a newer model of shotgun that is currently phasing out the M90. It is the primary weapon of the survivors in Halo 4's "Flood" mode and is also a possible ordnance drop from the UNSC Infinity in Halo 4's War Games.
- The skin of the shotgun has been heavily altered in Halo 4.
- It appears to have a higher rate of fire than previous versions of the shotgun.
- The shotgun sounds far more realistic than previous iterations. When it is being pumped after firing, one can hear an echo of the shot reverberate back to the player.
