In Alan Wake 2, a diverse array of weapons is available for both Alan Wake and Saga Anderson throughout their journey. However, some of these weapons can be challenging to acquire. This guide will provide you with the information on how to locate and unlock the combination code for the Sawed-off Shotgun during Saga Anderson’s storyline.
Where to Locate the Sawed-off Shotgun
To find the Sawed-off Shotgun, you’ll need to venture back to Cauldron Lake in Saga Anderson’s Return Chapter 2, also known as “The Heart.” Here, you can revisit the crime scene and explore the General Store where the shotgun is located. However, it’s crucial to note that you won’t be able to access the shotgun until you learn the location of “the Heart” by progressing through your Case File, reaching the Witch’s Hut, reading the Manuscript Page there, and conducting Profiling on Nightingale.
Upon returning to the General Store, you’ll encounter a Cultist who bursts out of a wall from a room that was previously locked. You’ll need to defeat this Cultist to proceed.
In the newly accessible room, examine the wall to the right, next to an Inventory Expansion Pack, to discover the Sawed-off Shotgun. The shotgun case is secured with a three-digit combination lock, and there’s a small note that provides a hint: “Check with Lady Fortuna at the counter.”
How to Obtain the Combination Code for the Shotgun Lock
Return to the previous room and go behind the counter to the register. You’ll find a desk that can be inspected. Here, you’ll come across several crossed-out three-digit codes and two additional potential clues: the number for a palm reader and a lottery ticket.
Pay close attention to the lottery numbers and compare them to the crossed-out codes. Each of these codes corresponds to one of the lottery numbers, with the addition of the number 7 – (7)05, (7)13, (7)17, and (7)23. Given the note’s advice not to forget to update, the logical code to use is 739. Enter this code into the combination lock, and the Sawed-off Shotgun will be yours!
