From Liquipedia Counter-Strike Wiki
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.

The Remington Model 870 is a U.S.-made pump-action shotgun manufactured by Remington Arms Company, Inc. It is widely used by the public for sport shooting, hunting, and self-defense. It is also commonly used by law enforcement and military organizations worldwide. The Remington 870 was the fourth major design in a series of Remington pump shotguns. John Pedersen designed the fragile Remington Model 10 (and later the improved Remington Model 29). John Browning designed the Remington Model 17 (which was later adapted by Ithaca into the Ithaca 37), which served as the basis for the Remington 31. The Model 31 was well liked, but struggled for sales in the shadow of the Winchester Model 12. Remington sought to correct that in 1949 by introducing a modern, streamlined, rugged, reliable, and relatively inexpensive shotgun – the 870. It was an adaptation of the Remington 11–48 autoloader, itself an adaptation of the John Browning-designed Remington 11. On April 13, 2009 the ten millionth Model 870 was produced, and the 870 holds the record for best-selling shotgun in history.

The 870 features a bottom-loading, side ejecting receiver, tubular magazine under the barrel, dual action bars, internal hammer, and a bolt which locks into an extension in the barrel. The action, receiver, trigger system, safety catch and slide release catch of the Remington Model 870 shotgun are similar to those used on the Remington Model 7600 series pump-action centerfire rifles and carbines.

The 870 appears in CS:GO as a sawed-off shotgun. There are no ballistic advantages to such a modification as it is done mainly for concealment purposes.


This weapon has horrible accuracy, firing speed, clip size, and recoil. So why use it? In a close range fight such as apartments on inferno, this gun can instantly kill almost anyone at close range, so long as you get a solid hit. It also give a $900 kill reward, so if you kill 2 enemies, you'll recoup your entire investment, plus another $600. It also has a decent movement speed, allowing for more manoeuvrability in combat, helping you to get into range for a deadly close-quarters blast. Just be careful, as its downsides can easily let you down.
