The Remmington Model 870 is a pump action shotgun featured in Medal of Honor (2010) and Medal of Honor: Warfighter. The M870 shotgun, better known as Remington Model 870 shotgun, has been introduced in the U.S military force since the Vietnam War when the army decided to replace the more expensive Winchester Model 12 shotgun with the cheaper yet equally effective M870 shotgun. The Remington 870 shotgun is known as the most popular close quarter combat weapon in the world among police, private security, military and home defense.
Medal of Honor (2010)Edit
This weapon is only available during First In. It is capable of dismemberment, and is very deadly at medium range. It also comes with a Red Dot Sight. It is very useful for the close quarters engagement of the level. Ammo is receivable from Mother.
It is available early to people who pre-ordered the Limited Edition. This weapon has an effective range of close to medium-close. It is possible to hit and even kill enemies beyond that range, the slug attachment can make it as deadly as a sniper, although a follow up shot is sometimes necessary.
Medal of Honor: WarfighterEdit
The 870 is available in-game in short-barreled setup with no buttstock. It appears in single-player for door breaching, and in multiplayer as the Pointman's secondary weapon, with a Trijicon RMR Reflex Sight.
The 870 is very powerful, but lacks stopping power beyond very short range. Carrying only 4 shells at maximum, the player will be in a tough situation when coming across players with weapons with longer ranges and faster rates of fire.
