The Lever-Action Shotgun is a weapon in POSTAL 2: Paradise Lost.


The Lever-Action Shotgun is an old, Wild West style shotgun that uses a lever for cycling a new shell into the firing chamber. It deals similar damage and fires the same amount of pellets as the regular Shotgun, but has a much tighter spread, giving it much better accuracy at long range. It is much less common than the regular Shotgun, but can still be found in several different locations across Paradise.

Enhanced Mode[]

The alt-fire will fire incendiary shots that will ignite NPCs if any pellets connect.


  • The Lever-Action Shotgun is modeled on a sawn-off Winchester 1887.
  • The Postal Dude works the lever on the weapon by flipping the weapon 360 degrees with one hand. This appears to be a reference to the similar re-cocking method used by Arnold Schwarzenegger's T-800 character in the film Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Unlike the movie's shotgun, which had a larger lever loop to allow Schwarzenegger to cock the gun one-handed, the Lever-Action Shotgun's in-game model has a standard lever loop, meaning it would likely break one's fingers if they were to try it in real life.
