The Zero Trick (or Zero's Trick) is an ability and a combat technique.


Originally developed by any number of shooters using pump-action shotguns, this technique was named in honor of Instructor Zero, in particular this video.

The technique consists in learning a method to rapidly cycle the slide on a pump-action firearm (usually a shotgun), in such a way that it makes it possible to increase the shooter's effective rate of fire. Certain weapons are better suited than others for this task, though it seems to mostly depend on the shooter and their level of familiarity with their weapons, and the video demonstrates that it is perfectly possible to learn the Trick using stock, unmodified weapons.


This ability is not initially available and must be unlocked. To unlock this ability, your character must reach Expert level in the Pump-action combat skill.

Once unlocked, to be able to perform this combat technique, your character must be equipped with the following:

  • A firearm capable of using pump-action mode.


If you meet the skill and weapon requirements, you can perform the Zero Trick, which will result in the following:

  • The max shots per turn limit for pump-action mode is doubled (allowing for up to 10 shots instead of only 5)
  • IR +1
