In order to obtain the Riot shogun in Callisto Protocol, you have to follow the steps below. 

Starting The Lost Chapter 

In order to obtain the Riot gun, you need to start the 5th chapter of the game. At the end of the fourth chapter, players will spend most of their time wandering around the frozen wasteland of Callisto. The outside of black iron prison has also been affected by the Biophage Outbreak. The first step you need to do is to find Elias. 

Find Elias 

After the cutscene in the opening part ends, you will need to make your way across the storm. Players need to look out for a single Biophage waiting for players while circling around the storm. Elias will contact Jacob to help him out.

Unfortunately, by the time you actually reach out to help him, it is too late. Now, this is where Dani will show up. He will proceed to take a Core implant out of his body of Elias. Now, the players need to make their way toward the hangar.

Furthermore, the players need to look out for shelter nearby. The players can find shelter in a building located not far from here. The building will also have a Reforge Station in it. 

Making Way To The Hangar 

The next thing you need to do is keep moving toward the hangar. While exploring the area, make sure to keep an eye out for any frozen bodies nearby. This is because there are some Biophages among them that can attack players at any moment.

You can use your Stun Baton to kill them or even use your gun to finish them off quickly. Make your way across the broken bridge. You will reach an open space here that is full of explosives. Make sure to keep an eye out for them; otherwise, you will end up killing yourself.

There is also a worker here that will ask you for help. After helping out the trapped worker, there will be a lot of Biophages that will attack you in the game. You need to kill these Biophages while keeping an eye out for the splash damage that will come from the explosion. After successfully destroying all the Biophages you need to look for a door nearby. 

For indication, there will be a Biophage looking through the window here. You need to kill the Biophage and look for a body lying nearby. Take the Core implant out of his body, and you will be able to unlock a door here. 

Look For The Signs 

When you’re done in this area, you need to make your way to the ruined tunnels. These tunnels lie beyond the door, and there are a series of signs and messages written on the wall here that will help you reach your next destination.

After following all these signs successfully, the players will be able to make their way to the hangar. Therefore, if you feel like you are lost and need some help in navigation, follow these signs. The area you have now entered is a series of corridors.

Furthermore, you will also be coming face to face with a new kind of Biophages known as the Combustors. The worst part about these biophages is that they Explode when they get close enough to you.

However, they are pretty slow, so you don’t need to worry about them exactly. Just make sure that you shoot and kill them before they get too close to you. 

Helping Dani 

After that, you just need to head straight and look for a door with a label on it saying Garage Airlock N107.

There will be a cutscene where both of them will argue. In the end, they decide to put the differences aside, even if they are not friends, and try to get off Callisto together.

The Alt fire that the Riot gun has to offer after the upgrade will help you take out swarms of enemies in no time. However, keep in mind that the upgrade will also use more ammo per shot.
