Call of Duty: World at War Edit
With this attachment, the Double-Barreled Shotgun becomes more likely to deliver a one-shot kill on damaged enemies only (at close range). However, the Double-Barreled Shotgun without the attachment already kills undamaged enemies in three pellets and has low enough range to begin with, and therefore this isn't the most effective attachment to use.
Also, although it increases damage at maximum range, the player will need more hits to kill, as the range and accuracy are dangerously decreased from this attachment.
Call of Duty: Black OpsEdit
Sawed-Off returns in the Call of Duty: Black Ops versions of the Zombies maps Nacht der Untoten and Verrückt. It is only available for purchase from the wall, attached to the Double-Barreled Shotgun. It is identical to its World at War counterpart.
Two Sawed-Off Double Barreled Shotguns are briefly seen in the Call of the Dead introduction scene, being utilized by Michael Rooker. What became of them after the scene is unknown, they are not available in Call of the Dead, nor are they seen or mentioned in-game.
- A Sawed-Off Double Barreled Shotgun with Grip is located just before entering the Asylum in the mission "Ring of Steel" and is obtainable from the mystery box in Nazi Zombies.
- Sawed-Off has the exact opposite effect of the Call of Duty: Black Ops attachment Snub Nose, which increases accuracy at the cost of power.
- The Sawed-Off attachment removes the iron sight that comes with the Double Barreled Shotgun, and when the player aims down the "sights" he will aim down the barrel instead.
- In Nacht der Untoten, the Sawed-Off shotgun can be obtained from the wall for 1200 points, same in Verrückt, but it was cut from the wall in Shi No Numa.
- In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 the Ranger shotgun is sawed off, but it is unlabeled because this weapon is always sawed off.
- In the game files for Der Riese, there are codes that hint at a Pack-a-Punched form of the Sawed-Off Double Barrel called the Snuff Box, but it does not appear as the Sawed Off in only useable in Nacht Der Untoten. However, the weapon can still be upgraded by modding, showing it was cut fairly late in development of the map.
- The attachment is mentioned by Marlton in Black Ops II Zombies map Die Rise, where he says he'd mention why sawing off the barrels would be a bad idea, but refrains.
