The Winchester is a weapon featured in Zombie Panic: Source.
The Winchester is a long barreled hunting shotgun. Unlike most shotguns, the Winchester has no pump action and can be fired as fast as the wielder can press their fire button. It's also a good weapon for scoring head-shots with. Unfortunately, its capacity is a mere 2 shells and the reload process is quite slow. However, even with its downsides it is still an incredibly effective weapon if used correctly.
- Due to the long reload time of the Winchester, its best to switch to a pistol or melee weapon after getting two shots off on one zombie to finish it off.
- Keeping the crosshairs on the upper chest will increase chances of a head-shot while maintaining pellet count.
- Firing both barrels (mouse 2 by default) is almost a guaranteed kill on regular zombies, but the wielder should be cautious as they will need to reload before continuing to fire at other zombies.
- The Winchester can act like a Magnum. If one aims for the head successfully, a damage multiplier is added. With its accuracy, it is possible to kill a zombie in one headshot, although, it may take two.
