|For a cross-game overview, see combat shotgun.|
A combat shotgun is a shotgun that is intended for use in an offensive role, typically by a military force. While limited in range, the multiple projectiles typically used in a shotgun shell provide increased hit probability unmatched by other small arms, usually utilized in close-range combat.[Fallout 2d20 1] Most combat shotguns are fully automatic and have a drum magazine, giving them a definite advantage over break-action double-barrel shotguns.
A combat shotgun such as this is designed specifically for offensive situations. With the gun being semi or fully automatic and having large magazine capacities, the combat shotgun is the premier rapid-fire high-capacity shotgun in Appalachia.
