The Automatic Shotgun would have had the lowest spread of all shotguns, but the highest fire rate (Identical to the now present Uzi Hotline Miami).
- The Automatic Shotgun was removed because "It didn't fit the style of Hotline Miami" meaning that it would not have suited the Civilian Urban area style of Hotline Miami.
- Also at the time all Automatic shotguns, were either reserved for only the military, or were still in a prototype stage, the Automatic Shotguns available in 1989 were: The Pancor Jackhammer, The H&K CAWS, USAS-12 Prototypes, S&W Automatic Shotgun, the 1972 version of the AA-12 and the Remington 7188.
