A Sawn-off shotgun is a type of shotgun with a shorter gun barrel and often a shorter or absent stock.
Hitman: Codename 47
- The Massacre at Cheung Chau Fish Restaurant: Used by the bartender.
- The Lee Hong Assassination: Used by the bartender.
Hitman 2: Silent Assassin
- Can be obtained by getting two Silent Assassin ranks.
- Beldingford Manor: Found on both of the targets.
- Rendezvous in Rotterdam: Found on several guards and in a room in the basement.
- Deadly Cargo: Found on the bartender and several bikers.
- The Seafood Massacre: Used by the bartender.
Combat-wise, it is similar to the Double-Barreled Shotgun in terms of damage and shots before reload. However, it has a noticeably shorter range and wider spread. Unlike its longer cousin, however, the Sawn-off can be concealed, making it far more useful.
Dual Sawn-off shotguns
Dual sawn-off shotguns can be obtained in Hitman: Contracts by beating Rendezvous in Rotterdam with a Silent Assassin rating. It is probably one of the most powerful weapons in the whole game, as it can blast a NPC into the distance.
- The design of the Sawn-off shotgun in Hitman: Silent Assassin has a considerably and noticably longer barrel than the one that 47 remembers in his flashbacks.
