Description
A brand new, life snatching shotgun has been added to the weapons menu: The Goliath 12G Shotgun. It comes with a revolving mag that holds 6 shots. But it doesn't just look good, it's as deadly as you'd expect.

The Goliath 12G shotgun is a secondary shotgun in PAYDAY 2. It was released for free to the public on Day 9 of Hoxton's Housewarming Party.

OverviewEdit

The Goliath 12G is a strange weapon to use, to say the least. It is a bullpup shotgun that feeds from a detachable six-shell cylinder that reloads by swapping out the entire drum at once, giving it a much faster reload compared to some of its competitors. Damage-wise, the Goliath is fairly weak by shotgun standards, and has a very narrow projectile spread, therefore being largely ineffective where it shouldn't be. Its downright disappointing Concealment stat also does not help it fit in well with a Dodge or Stealth build.

The Goliath can best be viewed as a slightly longer-ranged version of the Street Sweeper, sharing similar stats overall in terms of Damage per shot and Stability, but whereas the Sweeper dominates at close range, the Goliath does a better job at mid-range, especially in conjunction with Flechette Rounds or Slugs. 

SummaryEdit

Pros:

  • Reasonably high rate of fire
  • Reasonably deep ammo pool
  • Good accuracy at range
  • Relatively fast reloads

Cons:

  • Low damage
  • Small magazine size that cannot be increased via mods
  • Limited range of modifications
  • High price
  • Abysmal Concealment
  • Narrow spread limits effectiveness up close

TipsEdit

  • Acing both Fully Loaded and Close By to circumvent the Goliath's low initial magazine size. It can carry up to 21 shells at once and have 61 in reserve.
    • However, it may not be suitable for crowd control purposes, due to its fairly low rate of fire, low ammo pick up rate, and unusually low pellet spread. 
  • Due to its inherently high Accuracy, the Goliath could be modded to use Flechette rounds in conjunction with Far Away Aced to create a quasi-"sniper shotgun" usable against Snipers. As such, the Goliath 12G can be the answer for a shotgun wielding Enforcer to counter said special enemies.
  • The Goliath 12G can be used to land consistent shots on enemies without being burdened by high recoil, bearing in mind of its low damage and small magazine size.
  • A powerful primary weapon should be used in conjunction with the Goliath 12G to make up for its low damage per shot.

TriviaEdit

  • The Goliath 12G was based on the second prototype of the Crye Precision SIX12-LE modular shotgun in standalone configuration with a Magpul MVG.
  • The Goliath has a startlingly-low base Concealment despite being based on a notoriously compact and low-profile bullpup weapon system.
  • Along with the Locomotive 12G, the Goliath is one of the only two legitimately "free" secondary shotguns in the game that do not require being a member of the PAYDAY 2 Steam Group.
  • The Goliath is the second revolver-type shotgun featured in PAYDAY 2 after The Judge, and is the first one to be legitimately compatible with suppessors due to the inclusion of a gas-seal sleeve around its breech.
    • It is also the first and so far only revolver-type weapon to have a removable "magazine" and not feature any gimmick of sort during the reload process. Due to the inclusion of a double-action trigger in its design, the Goliath only has one reload animation.
