"Extremely powerful short-range weapon. Very dangerous in the wrong hands: anyone's but ours."
-Vice City Bureau of Investigation file description.
The Stubby shotgun is a weapon available in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.
The stubby shotgun is a powerful weapon, but it has a very short range. At close range it can blow up a vehicle with 2 rounds; however, you will likely take a lot of damage. At close range, it will take out an armored opponent, such as a SWAT member or an FBI agent. Due to its short length, it has an extremely low range, and it will probably not hit someone across the street. The model for the Stubby Shotgun in GTA Vice City and Liberty City Stories is based on an Ithaca 37 'Stakeout' whereas the Vice City Stories rendition is based off of a sawn-off Mossberg 500. The Chinatown Wars variant is rendered to be a Sawn-Off Shotgun according to the HUD image.
