The Combat Shotgun has been a favourite of many players since it was added back in Season 9.

It's increased range and high-fire rate made it deadly in the right hands, however since its return this return with a decreased fire-rate, damage and magazine size its safe to say it isn't quite as favoured as it once was.

Well Epic have heard the cries and they have answered them with the Combat Shotgun receiving a considerable buff.

Combat shotgun stats:

  • Rare
    • Old Damage: 50
    • New: 57
  • Epic
    • Old Damage: 53
    • New: 60
  • Legendary
    • Old damage: 55
    • New: 63

It will retain its current reload time, magazine size and firing rate, but the as you can see above the raw damage has increased and yet substanstially.
