I went through the instruction book a few times, but I didn't see much information about the Sawed Off.

The weapon reads, in the subtitle text, SPECIAL ! 1 ACTION TO RELOAD. FREE IN END PHASE.

1) What does "reload" mean?
2) If I dual wield it, do I have to spend TWO actions "reload" both?

1) It means you cannot fire the gun in two subsequent actions. It requires an action to reload. After all Survivors (and Zombies) have taken their turn, it will be automatically reloaded on the Survivor's next turn (hence "free in end phase"). This means it will still require reloading if you trade it with another survivor during the Players' Phase!
2) You can dual reload with one action.

The exact rules are in a text box marked "Reload!" on page 17 of the manual:

Zombicide wrote:
While most weapons can be used repeatedly, a few, like the Sawed-off, require spending an Action to re-load them between shots if you want to fire multiple times in the same turn. At the End Phase of the turn, all such weapons are freely reloaded, so that they always start the turn ready to fire. If such a weapon is fired and passed to another Survivor without reloading, it must still be reloaded before the new owner can use it in the same turn. When equipped with two identical Dual weapons that require reloading, a single Action reloads both.

Thank you very much for the information.

I got my game second hand, so I don't know if the Rulebooks are different from version to version. My Page 17 is the Scenario #00 - Tutorial page. I looked through my Rulebook again and still couldn't find it.

However, your information will make the playing of the weapon much easier.

Hmm, interesting. You must have an older version then. In that case, you might also have a misprinted version of Mission 2.

Thankfully, you can download the latest version of the Rulebook from Zombicide.com. It's the version I referred to in my last post.

You can find it HERE (10MB .pdf).

Oh wow. Yeah, this is a different Rulebook. This Page 17 also has a section of IMPROVED WEAPONRY: SNIPER RIFLE AND MOLOTOV. In my Rulebook, that is in one of the "Note" boxes on Page 12.

I'll be printing this Rulebook later on today.

I would actually suggest you get the rulebook for Season 2 instead. IMHO, it's a better rulebook and has more examples. Still the same game.

Or, better yet, the Season 3 Rue Morgue rulebook. It's even better, and more complete yet again!

Maybe when I have the money. I blew most of my budget for gaming at a Game Swap & Sell where (among MANY other games) I got the Season 1 for $40 and the guy I bought it from threw in an extra two characters.

So, somewhere down the line, I'll get the other two seasons and, perhaps, some of the other expansions. For now, I'll learn how to play Season 1 better.

Or, are you suggesting just the actual rulebook? If so, where could I grab those?

You should be able to buy the printed & bound Rue Morgue rulebook for under $10 on eBay, maybe less. Not sure if it'd be cheaper to have someone print the PDF locally.

I've got a friend who is willing to print it off. I'll do the PDF for now until I actually get the other seasons of the game. Thank you guys so much.
