    • The Mozambique Drill is also referenced with an Anniversary Icon.svg Anniversary event challenge of the same name.
  • Since the game has been released, the Mozambique Shotgun has become a popular meme among players due to it being hardly viable in the mid to late game because of the low damage output and a 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 mocking Lifeline because of her unique accent. Even after the addition of Hammerpoint Rounds.svg Hammerpoint Rounds in Season 2.svg Season 2 and a magazine size increase in Season 6.svg Season 6, and another magazine size increase but the removal of Hammerpoint Rounds.svg Hammerpoint Rounds in Season 9.svg Season 9, making the weapon somewhat more viable than it was on release, the meme is still popular to this day.
  • During Season 1.svg Season 1, the Mozambique Shotgun 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.svg Season 2.
