The Compact Shotgun is a Tier II secondary in World War Z.
Since the barrel of the compact shotgun is sawed-off, it provides less space for the pellets to concentrate on one point, resulting in lower accuracy. The compact shotgun shouldn't really be used as a backup weapon because of the low ammo capacity. It should be used as a main weapon replacement because you will get a clear shot and the spread can take care of multiple zekes.
