So i messed up...

I played as Piers in Chapter 2 of Chris' Campaign and picked up the Shotgun. Now I am in chapter 3 as Chris and do not have a shotgun. From what I understand it's because the Chris AI did not pick up the shotgun. Is there a way to get the shotgun back besides replaying chapter 2?

Nope, you'll need to replay.

Each character is treated as an individual 'game', the AI doesn't have access to the equipment you found while playing as him/her - they only ever use their default gear.

The problem here is you completed Chapter 1 as Chris, unlocking Chapter 2. You then played Chapter 2 as Piers unlocking Chapter 3 - meaning you have access to Chapter 3 as either character.

You don't have to look at the game strictly linear, you can always go back and get things you missed or farm ammo and the like. Just consider clearing a level as unlocking the next.

I'm pretty sure, however, that if you're playing with a human partner any weapons they pick up will be added to that character's inventory in your game. I know that after playing through a couple of Leon's chapters with a friend, I loaded up chapter 2 as Helena and she had the Hydra.

Doesn't Helena always start with the Hydra?

Wasn't aware of that. Well... nevermind then.
