The 870 Combat (Modular Combat Shotgun variant) in real life.

The Remington Model 870 is an American 12-gauge pump-action shotgun designed by Remington in 1951. It entered service with the United States Marine Corps in 1966 and today, its more modern variant, the 870MCS (English: Modular Combat Shotgun) is currently in service with the United States, British and Australian military forces.

BF2 M11 87 Firing(00:05)
"This pump-action, magazine fed shotgun takes six shots plus one in the chamber. It uses 12 gauge Magnum ammunition and comes with a rubber padded buttstock to reduce recoil."
— In-game description

The M11-87 is a weapon featured in Battlefield 2, issued to the USMC Engineer Kit. It is one of the two pump-action shotguns in the game, the other being the PLA NOR982; their stats are identical.

As with its counterpart, the M11-87 deals enough damage to kill two enemies at close range, and is capable of potentially dealing a large amount of damage even out to its maximum range. Its rate of fire and reload speed are both on the slower end of the spectrum.

"Classic American shotgun, Modular Combat Shotgun version. As the name implies, it allows the user to configure the weapon into different setups. "
— In game description.

The 870MCS is a weapon featured in Battlefield: Bad Company.

Singleplayer

The 870MCS can be found in a few missions. It is the weapon that Haggard always uses other than his M136 AT4.

Multiplayer

The 870MCS is the default shotgun issued to the American "Demolition" kit and has an 8-shell capacity. Like all pump-action shotguns, it is very powerful, being highly capable of killing in a single shot, but its efficiency deteriorates quickly at longer ranges.

It is also limited to a low rate of fire, requiring the user to pump every shot. When possible though, the 870MCS might be preferable over other pump action shotguns due to its faster pumping action and therefore rate of fire.

BFBC2 870 Combat Shotgun Montage(02:43)
"The 870 Modular Combat Shotgun is a powerful shotgun ideal in close quarters battle where breaching and stopping power is critical. It can be configured for multi-mission roles with various ammunition combinations."
— In-game description

The 870 Combat is a weapon featured in the multiplayer of Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

It is the first shotgun available to the player, unlocked once the player reaches rank 1. Its buckshot pellets provides effective close range firepower, usually resulting in a 1-shot kill at very close range, though its performance quickly deteriorates at longer ranges.

It has a default capacity of 4 shells, and increased range. If used with the Extended Shotgun Magazine, it can hold 8 shells, making it much more effective in large scale combat. It can also use the 12 Gauge Slugs for it to fire single long range projectiles, where it can kill in a single headshot at all ranges.

The 870 Combat has exactly the same stats as the NeoStead 2000 and SPAS-12 in terms of damage, damage multipliers, accuracy, recoil and rate of fire, though it has a slightly faster reload than the SPAS-12, and a slower reload than the NeoStead 2000.

It is possible to reload cancel, but this is less effective then it would be with the NeoStead 2000, reload canceling after a shot, by switching to an other weapon, will effectively cut the pump animation and double your fire rate, some practice is needed though.

Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam - 870 Combat(00:11)
"The 870 Modular Combat Shotgun is a powerful shotgun ideal in close quarters battle where breaching and stopping power is critical. It can be configured for multi-mission roles with various ammunition combinations."
— In-game description

The 870 Combat is a weapon featured in the Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam expansion as an all-kit weapon. Its appearance is much more rugged and rusty, as with all the Vietnam weapons with cloth strips holding parts together. It also has wooden furniture, as opposed to the plastic and metal design of the base game.

Its overall design is also slightly altered, with the weapon having a rear pistol-grip separate from the stock rather than integrated in. It performs similarly to the 870 Combat in the base game, but it has higher damage up close.

Like in the base game, it has a default capacity of four shells and can be modified with the Extended Shotgun Magazine to have eight shells, and/or the 12 Gauge Slugs to fire single long range projectiles.

Unlike in the base game, the 870 is the Vietnam expansion's only shotgun, and as such fills an anti-personnel role at close range that cannot be compared to any other weapon available in the expansion.

The 870 Combat is a weapon featured in Battlefield Play4Free that can be bought through the in-game store at the cost of 999 P4F Funds for unlimited use or 400 PF4 Credits per day.

It comes with an 8 rounds magazine and provides effective close range firepower, usually resulting in a 1-shot kill at very close range, though its performance quickly deteriorates at longer ranges.

It also has usable iron sights and does actually exactly the same damage as the standard SPAS-12 with the same rate of fire, but is less expensive than the latter, lending to personal preference between these guns.

The 870 Combat BF3 Edition was given to players who pre-ordered Battlefield 3 through the EA Store. It is statistically identical, but has a different visual finish.

Main weapon

"The M870 is an American made Pump-Action Shotgun that has been used by Special Forces units for decades. In urban environments the M870 is especially effective due to its high stopping power at close range. The ability to load different types of shells makes the M870 able to adapt to a wide variety of situations, while a narrow choke gives the M870 slightly more range than other shotguns."
— Battlelog description

The 870MCS is a weapon featured in Battlefield 3.

Singleplayer

The 870MCS is used by the USMC, and the PLR forces. The shotgun is also one of the default weapons in Operation Guillotine. The National Gendarmerie can be seen using the 870MCS in Comrades.

Co-Op

The 870MCS is used by the PLR in the mission Exfiltration and is also the secondary weapon for both players in the mission The Eleventh Hour.

Multiplayer

The 870MCS is the first shotgun available to players in multiplayer, since it is already accessible at level one. It has the highest damage and longest range of all the shotguns in the game, however the SPAS-12 has a tighter spread allowing for more consistent longer range shots.

Even for a pump-action weapon, the rate of fire of the 870MCS is quick enough to fire follow-up shots much faster than Battlefield: Bad Company 2's version. Sporting a 5-shell capacity (one in the chamber and four in the tube magazine), it can kill with a single shot at close range, or two to three shots at medium range.

Sights/optics (such as the red dot sight, and rifle scope) and ammo (12G slug, 12G Frag, and 12G Flechette) replacements can also be unlocked for this shotgun.

The use of extended magazines changes the visual appearance of the 870MCS. As with most weapons, reloading takes much longer if the player does not have a shell chambered already. The 870MCS does have the advantage of being able to fire while reloading.
