Damage Profile[ | ]

Note: Fortified Fortified headshot damage may vary ±3. This is due to uncertainty over whether Fortified reduces non rounded or rounded damage numbers. This difference is negligible on non pellet based weapons.

Lore[ | ]

In the wake of the mass Frontier migration into the Outlands, regional conflicts and land-grabs created a demand for inexpensive firearms. The Mozambique Shotgun (named for an execution technique with a similar, triangular spread) served that function for Pilots in the Frontier War and a new model was soon being mass-produced for civilian use. The result is a firearm with a small magazine and minimal stopping power - while useful for self-defense, a standard Mozambique will require modifications (or a lot of luck) to be useful in a real fight.

Skins[ | ]

There are a total of 66 skins for the Mozambique Shotgun: 11 Legendary, 7 epic, 32 Rare, and 16 Common.

Trivia[ | ]

  • The name and triangular pellet pattern of the Mozambique Shotgun is a reference to the Mozambique Drill technique of shooting someone twice in the chest and once in the head.
    • Bangalore may reference this when pinging a Mozambique.
    • The Mozambique Drill is also referenced with an Anniversary Anniversary event challenge of the same name.
  • Requesting optics for the Mozambique will result in the Legend asking for pistol optics, instead of shotgun ones, despite the weapon being classified as a shotgun.
    • The Mozambique being a pistol was also further supported by Hammerpoint Rounds Hammerpoint Rounds, which were shown to be compatible with "pistols, except the Wingman".
  • Since the game has been released, the Mozambique has become a popular meme among players due to it being hardly ever useful in fights because of the low damage output and the very slow time to kill; the weapon is also memed for the line Mozambique here!, said by all Legends when pinging one, with players especially mimicking Lifeline because of her unique accent. Even after the various buffs the Mozambique received through the Seasons to the point of becoming a far more viable weapon than it was originally, the meme is still popular to this day.
    • Respawn Entertainment themselves officially acknowledged the existence of this meme during the second Anniversary Anniversary of the game, by adding a Charm Weapon Charm as well as a Badge Badge.
    • During April Fools' 2023, pinging any weapon (except the Mozambique) would transorm it into a random April Fools' variant of the Mozambique based on its original ammo type, essentially rendering impossible to ping other weapons than the Mozambique. During the same say, most Map Features such as Doors and Ziplines also served the same fate, replacing themselves by Mozambiques once pinged.
  • During the Preseason Preseason and Season 1 Season 1, the Mozambique had a unique drop animation where the Legends would forcefully throw it on the ground instead of simply letting the weapon fall. It has been removed in Season 2 Season 2.
