Combat Shotgun (S890)

The Combat Shotgun is a Tier II primary weapon in World War Z based on the real-world Benelli M4

The combat shotgun is more effective than the normal shotgun at swarms since it has a penetration of 2 and a faster firing rate, in some sense, it might be better than the SMG and AK since the high damage output, but understand that it take a while to refill the magazine, and only to be discharged at an instant, so pick it up when you think you have plenty of tie for reloading, otherwise, pick up a magazine fed gun like the SMG. It is not effective at taking out enemies at the long range since it won't do full damage (obviously because it is a shotgun)and might scratch the Zeke behind it(penetration of 2), therefore accidentally alerting other zekes.
