View Full Version : Can't pickup shotgun shells

7th Jun 2007, 22:42
Been playing the game for a day or so now and enjoying it but I have noticed that I haven't been able to pick up certain items. This is particularly noticeable on the colliseum level where I haven't been able to pickup any of the shotgun shells so far, I simply don't get the ! symbol in the yellow triangle appearing no matter how many times I try. The shells I have been unable to get so far are 1) above the pool at the start of the level, 2) on the floor of pit after you beat the 2 gorillas and 3) on the ledge running around the pit.

Anyone else had this problem?

You have a set number and once you reach that number you will not be able to pick them up. Shotgun is 40 I think.

You are correct.

Thanks guys -just realised that after I shot a few more shells and then I could pick them up

Don't forget to reload.

I only have thirty two and I can't pick up the shotgun shells in the Lost valley.

Ditto. Yet the strategy guide lists it as being a max of 48.

Maximum for the normal shotgun is 40, with 32 if you have reloaded you should be able to pick the ammo up

Yeah I figured that too. I had the same thing happen to me. I wish I'd had the darn thing, the shotgun, before I had to fight the T-Rex.:lol:

I have 8/40 for the shotgun and I cant pick up anymore until I shoot and reload. I'm guessing the 8 means # of ammo in the shotgun itself and 40 is what I have in total?

Yes. :)
