The Shorty is a weapon in The Last of Us. It is a one-handed shotgun. It belongs to the pistol group.

SingleplayerEdit

It can be found in the sewers of The Suburbs, on a bench to the left, just after setting off the first sound trap. Another one can be found on one of the Infected that Joel fights in the large room after being separated from the group. It only holds two shells by default but the mag size can be raised up to six shells when upgraded. The Shorty does not use the same shells as the shotgun.

In their last encounter in The Suburbs, some Hunters can be seen using this weapon through the scope of Joel's sniper rifle as they attack Henry, Sam and Ellie. This is the only time Hunters are seen using this weapon. Throughout the rest of the game, it is sporadically seen carried by other enemies such as Bandits, Cannibals and Fireflies.

MultiplayerEdit

The Shorty also appears in Factions. It can be used in the default Assault class. It is also unlocked at 375 parts. It comes with two shells in the tube (this cannot be improved through upgrading). It requires 1 loadout point to equip, unlike the other pistols. To obtain the silencer for the Shorty, the player needs 1125 supplies. The silenced Shorty costs 3 loadout points. The player starts out with seven shells, and players can carry up to 8; it costs 80 parts to get 4 more shells.

Unlike the other pistols, the Shorty is only useful at very close range. Within its effective range, however, the Shorty can down uninjured enemies in only two shots. Only one shot is required at close ranges to execute a downed enemy. This makes the Shorty theoretically capable of killing faster than either the Revolver or the 9mm Pistol at short range, as the Revolver suffers from a slow rate of fire, and the 9mm suffers heavily from damage wobble. The Shorty's high damage and ease of use also make it a great finisher weapon, or used in combination with other weapons. It is perhaps best used with the Machete the 2x4 as a blast from the Shorty combined with a slash from the machete or a hit from the 2x4 ensures a down in close quarters, which can be devastating against armored opponents. A shot from the Shorty followed by an attack from either of these weapons downs targets considerably faster than two Shorty blasts without upgrades. 

Despite its strengths, the Shorty remains a highly situational weapon. Its is very weak at medium to long range. In addition, it is only marginally more powerful than the revolver, which does not cost loadout points and remains equally effective at all ranges. Shorty users are ineffectual at range unless they also have a longer-ranged weapon. Like the other shotguns, the Shorty does not deal additional damage for headshots. Finally, the Shorty's fire rate is low despite its semi-automatic fire, and coupled with its small magazine, missing shots with the Shorty is much less forgiving than with the 9mm or revolver.

TriviaEdit

  • It appears to be some kind of semi-automatic sporting shotgun that has been turned into a sawed-off shotgun. Not a simple, crude conversion, it has been carefully modified; the cut ends of the barrel and stock show smooth edges and good craftsmanship.
  • A nearby note suggests this weapon belonged to Ish, the captain of a wrecked trawler on the shore near the drain.
  • It resembles the Pistole handgun of the Uncharted series.
