Shells (Cartridges in Serious Sam Advance) are a type of ammunition that serve as ammo for shotguns in the Serious Sam series.


In every game that it has appeared in so far, shells appear as a white box filled with shotgun shells. The amount of ammo in each box of shells depends on the game and (in some cases) the difficulty level. In Serious Sam 1, Serious Sam HD and Serious Sam: Next Encounter, each box gives out 10 shells (20 on Tourist, Easy and Serious difficulties), while in Serious Sam 2 it gives the player 20 shells per box.

Serious Sam 3: BFE also has a special shell pickup shaped like the pump-action shotgun's magazine that gives 5 shells (10 in Tourist and 7 in Easy difficulties).
