Alan Wake 2 Shotgun Guide: General Store Padlock Combination

This powerful shotgun will be a big help.

Want to get the shotgun in Alan Wake 2? Alan Wake 2 is home to some seriously twisted nightmares, and you’ll want to have everything you can possibly get your hands on to help you fight off the evil that comes from within. One early-game gun you’ll want to be sure to pick up is the Sawed-off Shotgun, and we’ll tell you where to find it and how to open the case in which it resides. 

Where to Find the Sawed-off Shotgun

While exploring the second chapter of Saga’s story very early in the game, you’ll come across a segment where you’ll need to investigate the General Store, which can be found fairly close to the center of the forest.

As you enter the General Store, a deer will bolt out and leave you to face off against an enemy. Shoot the foe in the head, then enter the door directly behind where it spawned. In this room on the wall is a case holding the Sawed-off Shotgun.

Alan Wake 2: General Store Padlock Combination

If you interact with the case, you’ll be presented with a padlock that requires a three-number combination. You can find the combination by comparing some notes and doing a bit of math at the General Store check-out counter – or you can just skip that and enter the combination: 739.

After opening the case and obtaining the Sawed-off Shotgun in Alan Wake 2, look just below the case for an item that will expand your inventory while you’re here. Speaking of your inventory, make sure you open it and set the Sawed-off Shotgun to a quick access slot so you can swap to it on the fly in battle.
