"Pump-action sonic shotgun. Employs a high decibel acoustic driver providing balanced stopping power and fire rate."
— In-game description

The Banshee is a pump-action sonic energy shotgun featured in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

Campaign[edit | edit source]

Unlike its multiplayer varaint, the Banshee actively deafens and disorients enemies, weakening and killing them with sonic pulses as opposed to directly impacting them. This is evident in the weapon's single-player design, which accomodates a drum-like muzzle to reciprocate sonic waves .This design bears strong resemblance of its multiplayer epic variant, the "Siren".

When all side missions are completed, the Banshee unlocks the C6 Stun upgrade, which increases the deafening effect of the weapon to stun C6 units.

  • Weapon Type - Shotgun
