The Remington Model 870 is a pump action shotgun featured in Medal of Honor (2010) and Medal of Honor: Warfighter. The M870, better known as Remington Model 870, has been introduced in the U.S military force since the Vietnam War when the army decided to replace the more expensive Winchester Model 12 shotgun with the cheaper yet equally effective M870.
Medal of Honor (2010)

Medal of Honor: Warfighter
- "The power of the 870 will stop most enemies dead in their tracks. Itʹs one hell of a sidearm."
- — Battlelog description
The 870 is a secondary weapon in Medal of Honor: Warfighter as a shotgun. In campaign, It carries four shells in at a time and a maximum of 26 shells in reserve. As a sidearm in multiplayer, it has unlimited reserve ammo.
In both singleplayer and multiplayer, it is short-barreled with no buttstock. 870 has a Trijicon RMR sight permanently attached.
The 870 is used for door breaching and by all encountered enemies.
The 870 is the sidearm of Pointman class.
It is very powerful, but lacks stopping power beyond very short range. Carrying only 4 shells at maximum, the least of all sidearms, the player will be in a tough situation when coming across players with weapons with longer ranges and faster rate of fire.
- The 870's Trijicon RMR sight shares the same model as the Mini (Red Dot Sight) seen in Battlefield 4, another game worked on by DICE.
