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.
Far Cry 5
The standard variant, the SBS is decorated in "Plain Jane" wood and blued steel.
The SBS has several skins and optics available for mods; having access to the Reflex, Red Dot, Optical, and Enhanced Ranger sights.
The Prestige variant, The Farmhand is decorated in a Fall's End theme, with the town's seal on the stock and receiver. The Farmhand has only optics, with the Reflex, Red Dot, Optical, and Enhanced Ranger sights being the only options for use.
Far Cry New Dawn
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.
- 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.
- The description of the SBS makes a joke about the stereotype trend of a "Shotgun Wedding".
- 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.
