If you’re like most gamers, you’re always looking for ways to get an edge on the competition. One way to do that on 7 Days to Die is by using the right gun.
But, which is the best gun to use? Sawed-off or long shotgun? Here’s a look at both so you can decide for yourself!
Sawed-Off or Long Shotgun in the Game 7 Days to Die?
In a nutshell, the sawed-off has a broader choke, causing greater damage at close range, whilst the long-barreled one is more precise.
A regular shotgun is preferable since close range (assuming headshots) and medium-range kills in one hit. That said, the sawed-off shotgun is only suitable for close range.
What is a Sawed-Off Shotgun?
A sawed-off shotgun is a shotgun with a shorter gun barrel—typically less than 18 inches—and a shortened or missing stock.
Contrary to popular belief, barrels do not, strictly speaking, have to be shortened with a saw. When fired, a sawn-off shotgun is no more powerful, but it is far less accurate, with shot pellets spraying out in a less controlled manner.
What is a Shotgun?
A shotgun is a long-barreled firearm designed to fire a straight-walled cartridge known as a shotshell, which normally discharges a number of small pellet-like spherical sub-projectiles known as the shot or occasionally a single solid projectile known as a slug.
Shotguns are commonly used to shoot at moving targets. A shotgun barrel’s bore is designed for a single gauge of ammunition .
