The sawed-off shotgun is a small gun in Fallout 2.

Background[edit | edit source]

Main article: Shotgun

A shotgun, also called a "scattergun", is a firearm designed to shoot a multitude of projectiles with a single pull of the trigger. This makes it very effective at hunting game, greatly increasing the weapon's hit potential. However, the accuracy and power found at close range diminish rapidly as you get farther away from the target. Shotguns designed for military use are often called "combat shotguns".

Someone took the time to chop the last few inches off the barrel and stock of this shotgun. Now, the wide spread of this hand-cannon's short-barreled shots make it perfect for short-range crowd control.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

A note should be made that it's the only Shotgun that only uses one hand, making it quite useful early on for users of the One Hander Trait. While this weapon is powerful, it can only fire two shots before having to be reloaded. If you want to make the best of this, make the enemy come to you. For example, alerting an enemy to your presence and hiding around a corner will make the target come to you. If you wait close enough to the corner, you can wait as your enemy spends his turn in rounding the wall or object and squeeze off two unanswerable rounds to the head.
