Powerful Close-Quarters Weapon
The Pump Shotgun is best used to eliminate enemies in close proximity. It is very effective against armored enemies such as the Shamblers and can take out human enemies with just one blast.
Highly Effective Against Melee Enemies
As melee enemies, both infected and normal ones, will aggressively try to pursue the player, having the Pump Shotgun in hand can quickly take out pursuers. Blast enemies from your position once they are near to immediately erase them from the fight.

Go For Capacity Next
As Ellie has to manually load each shell whenever she reloads the Shotgun. Getting this upgrade gives you more shots for each reload.
Stability Is Low Priority
The Pump Action Shotgun is a close range weapon and at that range, recoil and stability is something you shouldn't be concerned about. Get this upgrade last.Check Out All The Best Weapon Upgrades Here!
