The Pump-Action Shotgun is one of the standard issued armaments given to Gabriel Van Helsing during his mission in Transylvania. It was created by the Vatican's secret order within Rome.

Van Helsing (2004)Edit

After returning to the Vatican after his failed mission to capture Mr. Hyde, Van Helsing began arming up for his mission to Transylvania. Amongst his armaments, was the shotgun that Carl placed in one of their bags, but didn't use it until he was in Castle Frankenstein where he killed several of Dracula's children with it.

Van Helsing: The Video GameEdit

In the 2004 video game, the shotgun is obtainable by Van Helsing while in Transylvania. It is found in a nearby building with an opened window which he uses the Grapple Gun to ascend. He can later obtain a powerful ammunition to deal more damage to his enemies.


The Pump-Action Shotgun used in the film is nothing more than a mocked up Sawed off Remington 870 shotgun with a 5 round magazine. It fires a 12-Gauge Shotgun shell and is mocked up to look similar to that of a Wheelock Pistol.
