Combat Shotgun: Traits & Tips

Combat Shotgun: Weapon Traits

Deadly In Close Range

The Combat Shotgun is best used in close range where most of the shots will be able to connect with the target. Its semi-automatic firing mode, makes it easier for another shot if ever the first shot misses.

Reloads Two Shells At A Time

The Combat Shotgun has a relatively short reload time because it loads in two shells at a time. This means that reloading ten shells is quicker and more efficient to get you back in on the action faster.

Shotgun With Fast Fire Rate

Due to the Combat Shotgun's semi-automatic firing mode, this will have a relatively faster fire rate in relation to other Shotguns. Unload shots faster in close range battles to get the upper hand!

Can Be Used From Close To Mid Range

The Combat Shotgun will have a tighter spread, allowing you to engage enemies much farther away! The Combat Shotgun may allow you to hit targets where other shotguns might not be able to!

Reload When It Is Safe

The reload speed for this weapon is relatively fast, considering that it needs to load 10 shells. However, make sure to reload when you are certain that it is safe to do so.
