Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The Combat Shotgun has a fast firing rate, large magazine size and a tight bullet spread which makes it rather difficult for beginners to use at close range.
  • The weapon is also useful at medium range because of the tight bullet spread.
  • When facing off against another opponent with a different shotgun, you have to keep your distance, since the other shotguns are better at close ranges
  • Should the Pump Shotgun ever come back at a later date, a good combo would be to use the Combat to soften enemies at a distance, then use the Pump to finish them off. This is entirely hypothetical - rumours have existed that the shotgun delay might be removed, and that the Pump might come back at a later date. However, it is unknown for now if those hypotheticals will be fulfilled, but if they are, this could be the new Pump-Tac.
  • The Shotgun delay has been partially removed from the game to where you can swap to different shotguns, but is enabled if you swap to the same shotgun type. Swapping from a Tactical Shotgun to a Combat Shotgun will have no delay. However, swapping from a Combat Shotgun to another Combat Shotgun would not work and the delay would occur.

  • The weapon is the fastest-firing shotgun in the game, beside the Vaulted Double-Barrel Shotgun.
  • It is designed after the Taran Tactical Benelli M2 John Wick uses in Parabellum.
