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 [1].
