Shotgun - GTA San Andreas Weapon

The Shotgun is a weapon in the Shotguns class featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The design of the Shotgun in GTA San Andreas is based on a real life Wooden Ithaca 37.

This weapon also appears in Grand Theft Auto 6, Grand Theft Auto V, Red Dead Redemption 2, Grand Theft Auto IV, GTA Vice City and Grand Theft Auto III.

Shotgun Description:

The pump-action shotgun is a typical close-range weapon found widely across San Andreas. Its accuracy drops heavily farther than medium range, but increased skill levels allows strafing and shooting while moving.

This weapon has three Skill Levels you can progress through: Poor, Gangster and Hitman. Reaching the Hitman level allows you to fire while moving and improves lock-on range, accuracy, rate of fire, and strafe speed when using the weapon.

How to get the Shotgun in GTA San Andreas:

The Shotgun can be purchased from Ammu-Nation for a price of $600 (or 20% higher in Las Venturas).

It becomes available after completing the mission Doberman in Story Mode.

The Shotgun can be found and picked up around the San Andreas map (see the spawn locations in the "Appearances" section below).

The Shotgun also Spawns at Doherty Garage after completing 50 Snapshots.
