    ok, quick rant. I've been arguing with my friend (who also plays fortnite) about which shotgun is better, but when you're putting the pump against the COMBAT it's not even a question LIKE OFC COMBAT IS BETTER, COMBAT IS BAE (#combatforlife).

    the combat shoots 2x as fast, reloads 2 shells at a time, has a MUCH MUCH longer range, a smaller, more compact crosshair, and has a larger magazine (10 shells). As a result of these characteristics, the combat is more versatile, punishes you less for missing a shot, is more accurate, etc. It only loses to the pump in one. small. area.

    pure, point blank damage. Indeed, the epic and legendary pump has the ability to "one-pump" enemies, dropping 200-hp foes in a single shot. (The blue pump used to have this ability as well when outputting max damage) even at close ranges the combat is incapable of dishing out the insane damage that the pump can achieve.

    However this doesn't matter as much as you'd think. as of season 2 you'd have to be VERY, VERY close to one pump (and that's only with the epic and legendary variations!). even at close ranges ,most players will hit pump shots at the 150-180 range. with a combat you can easily fire off 2 shots that deal 100 damage each before the pump can fire again. This proves that the effectiveness of both shotguns at close range is still high, with the pump being suited for this kind of environment.

    One could argue that the pump+SMG combo outperforms the combat shotgun alone. this is true, but i don't think it's fair to compare one weapon with two seperate weapons.
