Uncharted Wiki

The Sawed Off Shotgun is a weapon that is featured in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (only Lazarevic has one) and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. In the beta, the Sawed Off Shotgun was only available in the Co-op game modes. In the game's campaign, it has a varying maximum ammo count, which usually stays at 10 or 12, but during certain times, can have a much larger capacity. An example of this is when it is given to Nathan in Yemen, and the ammo count changes to 32, After nate breaks free from the shipyard chasing Rameses' ship the ammo count changes to 15.

The Blindfire Accuracy of the Sawed-Off Shotgun was reduced in Uncharted 3 Multiplayer as of Update 1.09 to prevent the exploitation of the gun's high blindfire accuracy while used in the air.


The weapon has a capacity of two rounds and both shots fire very quickly,[1] not unlike the Pistole from Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. The Sawed Off Shotgun is double barrelled.
