The Coachman is a double-barrelled shotgun with a high damage output for close quarters combat at the cost of a low fire rate.

Weapon Types Pistol
Damage Types Physical
Ammo Types 7.77mm Caseless
Magazine Capacity 12
Mass 0.55
Value 883

This double-barrelled shotgun fires standard shotgun shells and deals high physical damage close-up. Laredo TM40x2 is written across the top of the Coachman, which could be its manufacturer or an early Starfield easter egg.

With only two shells between reloads, use the Coachman in mid to close range combat for a burst of damage before you switch to a melee weapon or retreat for cover.

Either way, it should come as no surprise that Starfield’s shotgun is devastating at close quarters so be sure to bring it along when you’re battling through cramped corridors or ship interiors.
