The Sawed-off is an exclusive shotgun type weapon that fits in your handgun slot/inventory on the map Miramar in BATTLEGROUNDS.

This weapon was introduced in the Test Server PC 1.0 update.


The smallest shotgun available in the game, the Sawed-off functions like a pocket S686, albeit with higher spread due to the short barrel. It has two barrels, side-by-side, and as such can hold two rounds. Like the S686, it can quickly fire off both barrels to quickly do a lot of damage.

The Sawed-Off has the highest potential damage of any handgun, but also the lowest potential damage and depending on the distance to the target. It has the shortest effective range of all handguns, and is really only useful shortly after landing or in point-blank CQB situations.

A break-open shotgun with a shortened barrel capable of firing two consecutive shots.
