The Coyote-A is a hunting firearm that has been customized for combat against demonic foes.
The Coyote-A is one of Dante's default weapons in Devil May Cry 4.
The Coyote-A's shot can hit targets at any distance, but is only truly effective at close range. The Coyote-A is extremely useful for destroying the protecting gas cape of the Mephisto & Faust, as well as the shield of the Assault. It is generally useful for crowd control, as its normal shot can cause stun and recoil at close range. Fireworks, especially, comes in handy when surrounded by many enemies. Also, the Gun Stinger attack is one of the few that can stun a Chimera Seed that is attached to a Scarecrow, and is also a one hit kill for a Chimera Seed. If you are up against a Basilisk they automatically knock it over for a fast combo.
It is possible to perform a ground-based jump, Air Hike, or Enemy Step right after shooting the Coyote-A to cancel the downtime between shots, which the player can exploit to immediately fire the weapon again, drastically increasing the rate of fire on the normally slow weapon. This makes it possible to devastate enemies with repeated shots via midair Jump Cancels.
Coyote is a trickster figure in several Native American mythologies. He is generally male and anthropomorphic. Although he is not trustworthy and is sometimes considered evil, he is responsible for bringing fire to humanity and many of the other features of how the world works. Despite not being a typical god, he has various supernatural powers.
- It is a possibility that Coyote-A was a gun Dante acquired during his time at Fortuna, such as Lady is seen possessing the "Shotgun" in her own story, and it also couldn't be a remade gun by Dante, because he is clearly not a tech guy in his business, or is mentioned to "Remake" his weapon's.
