The Tri-Shot is a new heavy weapon in Gears of War 4. It fires three bullets at once, offering a high damage and fire rate. However, the weapon can quickly overheat, causing the rate of fire to decrease significantly and the weapon to eventually fire only one bullet at a time. Guardian DeeBees have a Tri-Shot as their main armament, but they can also be wielded by DR-1s.
The Tri-Shot is much stronger than its counterparts, as it is capable of killing targets instantly at any distance. The Mulcher can kill targets instantly, but is only capable of doing so at close distances.
The Tri-Shot's execution involves ramming the weapon's barrels into the downed enemy's head and pre-spinning them, causing the body to rotate with the barrels whilst gibbing the body.
