Design and Performance


The Sawed-Off Shotgun is based on the Mossberg 500. This weapon has its manufacturer Shrewsbury’s lettering on its body. Its design is of the Mossberg 500, but just a shortened version. This is a pump-action shotgun with a mag capacity of 8 shells that cannot be upgraded. The Sawed-Off Shotgun shares some of its features with the Pump Shotgun.


(The Sawed-Off Shotgun being held in first person perspective)



The Sawed-Off Shotgun is a great weapon only at close ranges. It kills in a single shot at close range, whereas at medium ranges it might take more than one shot to kill an enemy. It shoots 8 pellets in a single shell with medium spread and hence this weapon cannot be used at long ranges. It has a fire rate of 70 shots per minute which can make fighting enemies with automatic weapons difficult. This weapon also cannot be used with any attachments, which is a drawback. It can be used for drive-bys and does heavy damage to vehicles in close range.

Trivia


  • The weapon also makes an appearance in Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3, other games by Rockstar Games.


  • In the original (PS3/Xbox 360) editions of the game, it is possible to use this weapon for drive-bys in a Bus. It is unknown whether this is intentional or the result of a bug, as it is the only large vehicle where this is possible. This feature was removed in the enhanced edition.


  • In the enhanced version, when viewed in First-Person View, the markings on the gun read "2G Paspe", which could be interpreted as "2 gauge". Theoretically, a 2-gauge shell would require a 2-inch-diameter (51 mm) bore. Weapons like the Punt gun have this kind of cartridge. It is probably a developer mistake, or it is supposed to be "12 gauge".
