A Shotgun with a sawed-off (shortened) barrel. Like the regular Shotgun, the Sawed-Off Shotgun is noisy, and will attract zombies towards the player. The Sawed-Off Shotgun uses the same ammunition as a standard Shotgun (shotgun shells), but the sawed-off barrel creates a larger cone of fire, thus drastically increasing the immediate spread of a fired shotgun shell at the expense of ranged accuracy. As a result, it is capable of easily taking out clumped up zombies close to the Player, but is not recommend for use against single targets or targets at range. As with the standard Shotgun, its noise makes it into a last-ditch weapon, as it can quickly draw a horde of zombies to your location. A Sawed-Off Shotgun also has the benefit of reduced weight (2.5 from 3.0).
