"Pump-action directed energy weapon. Best in class mobility."
— In-game description

The Tac-19 is a directed-energy, pump-action shotgun in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.


The Tac-19 is the first shotgun unlocked, and it comes as part of a default class.

The Tac-19 has a rather bizarre time-to-kill. It has extremely high damage, easily one-shot killing enemies, but a somewhat limited range and a low rate of fire due to the pump action. Compared to other shotguns, it has power a player can rely on for a one-shot kill, but it doesn't have the rate of fire if one relies on making a back-up shot. It's hip-fire spread is also very large, making it good to use a Laser Sight. Due to the pump action, recoil settles almost perfectly for the next shot to take place, making recoil non-existent, and nullifying the need for a Foregrip.
