The Colt Defender was a visually impressive multi-barreled shotgun originally designed in 1967 for law enforcement agencies. Eight 12-inch barrels -- all 20 gauge -- were joined around a central axis. A barrel selector on the striker hammer allowed the firer to choose which of the eight barrels would fire. In this way, a variety of ammunition could be available to the shooter: standard shotgun shells, bird shot, beanbags, rock salt, etc. The damage listed above takes into an account a standard 20-gauge shell. An addition to the Defender was a tear gas canister tucked into the center of the weapon's barrels. This canister can be activated with the forward trigger, ejecting a cloud of gas in a 30 foot cone. This gas should be treated as an irritant gas (MF rulebook, pg. 119).


  1. Pretty awesome. Wouldn't want to be on the wrong end of that one :-)

  2. You know what makes it double-awesome? It's a real gun! All of the info above is based on its real-world counterpart.

  3. That's spiffy Sniderman & I've got just the bad future to toss it into! Thanks pal!
