The '''Sawn-off Shotgun''', also known as the '''Sawed-off Shotgun''', is a weapon available in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]] and [[The Lost and Damned]]. This gun is based on a 12 Gauge [[wikipedia:Double-barreled shotgun|Double-Barreled Shotgun]] with a shorter gun barrel and often a shorter or deleted stock. Compared to a standard shotgun, the sawed-off has a shorter effective range, but the more destructive power because of increased pellet velocity and wider spread cone means more collateral power. Its reduced size makes it easier to maneuver and conceal. Such a powerful and compact weapon is especially suitable for use in small spaces, such as by vehicle crews, and entry teams running through doorways. To make shotguns less concealable, many jurisdictions have a minimum legal length for shotgun barrels.

==GTA San Andreas==

The '''Sawn-off Shotgun''', also known as the '''Sawed-off Shotgun''', is a weapon available in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], [[The Lost and Damned]] and [[Grand Theft Auto V]].
Despite being a shotgun, it is held like a [[Pistol]], the player can even sprint while holding it. It is double barreled and can only fire two shells before a rather lengthy reload. At hitman level, the player can dual wield it and fire four shells instead. With hitman skill and unlimited ammo, the sawn-off shotgun is almost as powerful as a [[Rocket Launcher|rocket launcher]], as it will blow up a car with about 6 shells and a [[Helicopter|helicopter]] with about 24 and a [[Rhino]] if you give it enough shots.

==Design and Performance==
The sawn-off shotgun can now be used while riding motorcycles (not driving cars) to perform [[Drive-By Shooting|drive-bys]]. It only holds two shells per reload and a short effective range, but it is very powerful. It is exclusive to The Lost and Damned and cannot be found in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], nor in [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]]. The sawn-off shotgun is very powerful at close ranges. This can be used to instantly set a vehicle on fire by shooting the rear tires. This weapon is usually a 1 hit kill at close range, but sometimes takes 2 hits.

With hitman skill and unlimited ammo, the Sawn-off Shotgun is almost as powerful as a [[Rocket Launcher|rocket launcher]], as it will blow up a car with about 6 shells and a [[Helicopter|helicopter]] with about 24. Also has enough power to "lift" a car for a few seconds before its destruction.

In The Lost and Damned, this gun is based on a sawed off 12 Gauge [[wp:Coach Gun|Coach Gun]], with two hammers and two triggers, which also known as the [[wp:Lupara|Lupara]]. The Sawn-off Shotgun in TLAD can be used while riding motorcycles (not driving cars) to perform [[Drive-By Shooting|drive-bys]].

This can be used to instantly set a vehicle on fire by shooting the rear tires. This weapon is usually a 1 hit kill at close range, but sometimes takes 2 hits. At drive-bys, the weapon takes 3-4 seconds to reload another 2 shells, but if the player release the firing button and press again, it can shoot again in 1 second, useful for quick assaults.

===GTA V===

In Grand Theft Auto V, the Sawed-off Shotgun is based on a shortened version of a [[wp:Mossberg 500|Mossberg 500]]. The gun holds eight shells per reload and is deadly at close range Just like in TLAD, it can be used for drive-bys on bikes, and now [[Bus|busses]].

Design and PerformanceEdit

GTA San AndreasEdit

In GTA San Andreas, this gun is based on a 12 Gauge Colt Model 1883 Hammerless Shotgun with a shorter gun barrel and often a shorter or deleted stock. Compared to a standard shotgun. Despite being a shotgun, it is held like a Pistol, the player can even sprint while holding it. It is double barreled and can only fire two shells before a rather lengthy reload. At hitman level, the player can dual wield it and fire four shells instead. With hitman skill and unlimited ammo, the Sawn-off Shotgun is almost as powerful as a rocket launcher, as it will blow up a car with about 6 shells and a helicopter with about 24. Also has enough power to "lift" a car for a few seconds before its destruction. 

The Lost and DamnedEdit

In The Lost and Damned, this gun is based on a sawed off 12 Gauge Coach Gun, with two hammers and two triggers, which also known as the Lupara. The Sawn-off Shotgun in TLAD can be used while riding motorcycles (not driving cars) to perform drive-bys. It only holds two shells per reload and a short effective range, but it is very powerful. It is exclusive to The Lost and Damned and cannot be found in Grand Theft Auto IV, nor in The Ballad of Gay Tony. The Sawn-off Shotgun is very powerful at close ranges. This can be used to instantly set a vehicle on fire by shooting the rear tires. This weapon is usually a 1 hit kill at close range, but sometimes takes 2 hits.
