Appearances Devil May Cry 4

The Coyote-A is a hunting firearm that has been customized for combat against demonic foes.[1]


The Coyote-A takes the form of a double-barrel Shotgun with a steel coat, it has a short, twin magazine located at the bottom near the trigger, a steel sling clip near the Front Sight's, and many more parts.


The Coyote-A is one of Dante's default weapons in Devil May Cry 4 with an unknown background.

The Coyote-A can be used to fire quick shots, but it has a better capacity in strength when it's used at close range. The Coyote-A has a shorter range than the previous Shotgun, but it takes on a similar style. It has enough power to take off the ice from the defense in a Frost, removing the gas cape of the Mephisto & Faust that it uses to hide its true form, take out shield's from an Assault and even back off bosses. The gun should be used in bigger packs of enemies and never used casually with bosses, since bigger enemies can disrupt attacks. It possesses a Fireworks move, which is weaker than previous versions but can take out enemies just as much as it did before. A Charged Shot has enough power to increase the damage output of a normal shot with 2% of its firing capacity and it's the best option for going toe-to-toe with foes. (This is voluntary with demonstration of a Devil Triggered shot.)

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.
