— In-game description

The SA-3 Mozambique, also knowns as the Mozambique Shotgun is a Pilot anti-personnel, triple-barreled shotgun pistol that appears in Titanfall 2 and Apex Legends. Like the B3 Wingman Elite, it can be equipped as a primary weapon as opposed to the secondary slot of all other sidearms in the game.

Prior to the release of the Tricks and Treats update, the Mozambique operated substantially differently to its' current incarnation; it could only be equipped in the secondary slot, was constrained to a magazine size of four shots and was only capable of semi-automatic fire.

Overview

The Mozambique makes for a reliable weapon, however its usefulness is somewhat hindered by its projectile travel time. Its operation and projectile indicate it operates on the same basis as the Mastiff shotgun.

The Mozambique is capable of fully automatic fire, like the EVA-8 Shotgun.

Trivia

  • The placement of the three barrels - in a triangle shape with two on the bottom and one on top - combined with the "Mozambique" name is a reference to the "Mozambique Drill", which dictates placing two shots to the chest and one to the head. This drill was popularised by Rhodesian mercenary Mike Rousseau, during the Mozambican War of Independence, who was the inspiration for the character of Kuben Blisk.
  • The Triple Tap Callsign can be unlocked by playing with the Mozambique, and Triple Tap XL can be unlocked via Advocate Gift. The Mozambique For Life callsign can be bought in the Monarch's Reign pack.
  • For the 2020 April Fools event in Apex Legends, the Mozambique was buffed with an increased magazine capacity that housed 9 shots (as opposed to the usual 3 shots).
