For the Far Cry 4 equivalent, see .700 Nitro. The SBS is a side-by-side double-barrel 12-Gauge shotgun featured in Far Cry 5, Far Cry New Dawn and Far Cry 6.

The SBS is a full-length "coach gun" style long rifle that uses a break-action mechanism to breach-load two shells, and fires each barrel individually, with one shell per-trigger pull.

It serves as a full-length variant of the sidearm-capable D2.

Makeshift SBS

""We need to tighten our belts" can refer to rationing food AND making sure your shotgun doesn't fly apart when you fire it."

The SBS returns in Far Cry New Dawn as a Rank 2 Weapon known as the "Makeshift SBS". It deals 428 damage. Mickey and Lou can sometimes be seen using this weapon. The Makeshift SBS works like its Far Cry 5 variant. However, its outer appearance is completely different. The sights are rusty and replaced with pieces of scrap metal. The barrel is wrapped up with duct tape and an adjustable belt. The stock is partially wrapped with electrical tape.

Trivia

  • The SBS is the full-length variant of the D2, which can be used in the sidearm slot, at the cost of reduced Accuracy and Range.
  • The SBS, in terms of design, despite being a shotgun appears to be based upon the 1880 Holland and Holland Hammerless Royal Ejector Rifle.[citation needed]
  • The description of the SBS makes a joke about the stereotype trend of a "Shotgun Wedding".[1]
  • In Title Update 7, the "Good Wood" skin for the SBS was changed to not just be a direct copy of the default, but instead to have a darker brown wood, with a brass-esque hue to the metal.[2]
