The official Sawed-Off Description states:

The classic Sawed-Off deals very heavy close-range damage, but with its low accuracy, high spread and slow rate of fire, you’d better kill what you hit.

This shotgun is a pump-action shotgun featured in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. It is exclusive to the Terrorists. The counterpart of this weapon for the Counter-Terrorists is the MAG-7.

This CS:GO Weapon is a modified Remington 870 shotgun with a shorter, ‘sawed-off’ barrel. It fires seven rounds of 12 gauge ammunition. It inflicts very high damage. That can kill an enemy with just one shot at close range and two to three shots in medium range. This shotgun can be fired while reloading, and like all other shotguns except for the Mag-7. It has a 3x kill award multiplier with 32 shells held in reserve.

The Sawed-Off is a moderate weight weapon. When wielded, the user suffers 16% speed reduction. The term “Sawed-Off” means shortening the barrel and the stock of a rifle and shotguns, making them easier to use at tight quarters.

These shotguns typically have a weapon length less than 18 inches & the shortened barrel will also give the gun a greater scatter effect if the user fires buckshot.

Compared to the other shotguns featured in CS:GO, the shotgun inflicts the heaviest damage on opponents who are sufficiently close.
