The Bigun is a new shotgun appearing only in the Metro: Last Light DLCs the Developer Pack and the Chronicles Pack. It is a six-round semi-automatic shotgun, made entirely from old bicycle parts, hence its name. The only available attachment is the laser sight. Due to programming constraints, 4A have said that they were unable to add it to the existing campaign and previous DLC. It is not dissimilar to the Shambler, both being a six round revolving shotgun; however, it fires faster than the Shambler (but not fully-automatically), but seems to have less range and damage per shot.

In the Developer Pack, is it found in the level of the same name for use in the Shooting Gallery and AI Arena. Its use in the Shooting Gallery is somewhat diminished (as with every other shotgun) as most targets in the challenges are too far away to shoot effectively, though it can be useful in fending off mutants in the AI Arena, though a Saiga may be a better choice.

It also features in the Chronicles Pack DLC, in the Khan level, although it is only useable when Ulman has a vision of a young Khan in Polyanka, and the player controls the latter. However, its use is somewhat diminished given the short section of the level, the ammunition constraints and the fact that is is somewhat weaker than the Shambler than can be picked up from your fallen companion. It also lacks any sights (aside from a laser sight), whereas the Shambler has a reflex sight. But it is a unique weapon that fits perfectly with Khan's strange nature. It is also in Metro 2033 redux and can be bought at Polis.

TriviaEdit

  • The gun is based on the winning design from a contest held on Gameplanet.
  • When idle, the character will ring the bell on the side of the weapon.
  • When analysed and compared with all the other weapons in Metro: Last Light, it seems likely that the weapon would retail for around 60 MGR, as it boasts improved performance over the Duplet, but is slightly worse than the Shambler.
    • It is the perfect halfway point between the slow but powerful Duplet and the automatic Shambler, capable of performing well against any mutants from close range. However, at long range it is practically useless compared to other shotguns when attachments are factored in.
  • In Metro 2033 Redux, if the Bigun is equipped with a Laser Sight, the laser dot will be misaligned, pointing a little left and up from the center of the screen. This makes the attachment a fairly useless purchase, given the clear iron sights present on the weapon.
