The sawed-off shotgun is a small gun in Fallout 3.

Characteristics

The sawed-off shotgun is a double-barrel shotgun that has had its stock and part of its barrels sawed-off, granting it increased mobility in return for drastically reduced range. It has two triggers, one for each barrel. It is affected by the Gunslinger perk. This weapon has one of the largest spread of all weapons in Fallout 3.

Durability

A fully-repaired sawed-off shotgun can fire 167 shots, or 84 reloads, before breaking.

The barrel is pointed down while reloading, giving the illusion that the spent shells have fallen on the ground, but the third-person view shows that the shells are simply cleared from the barrel, without being ejected.[verified]
