Sticky Bombs Are Fire-And-Forget

Sticky Bombs Are Fire-And-Forget

Sticky Bombs will detonate on their own if they hit their intended target and will often stagger them after blowing up. Spam them on tough targets and then move away to deal with other threats before coming back for the kill.

Fire A Bomb Into Cacodemon's Mouth

Fire A Grenade Into Cacodemon

A Sticky Bomb fired into Cacodemon's mouth will trigger a stagger, allowing for a fast Glory Kill. This is a very efficient way to deal with this relatively bullet-spongy enemy.

Rip Up Enemy Fast With Full Auto

Full Auto mod will turn Combat Shotgun into a fully automatic machine-shotgun, doing far more burst damage. It can chew up slow yet large foes like Mancubus with its consistent pellet flow.

Shares Ammo With Super Shotgun

Shares Ammo With Super Shotgun

A major issue to consider when using Combat Shotgun is that it shares ammo with Super Shotgun. As Super Shotgun's indispensable in a fight and Combat Shotgun spends ammo quite fast, ammo management will be key when using this weapon.
