The Overkill is a new weapon in Gears of War 4. Commonly used by DR-1 DeeBees, they are a 'burst fire' shotgun. Each trigger pull fires a round, and upon releasing the trigger, another round is fired, completing the burst. Whilst each burst fires two rounds, only one shotgun shell is used.
The Overkill's execution involves placing the weapon under the downed enemy's head and stomping on it, crushing the head.
