  • Visible bullets are randomly distributed within a 20° cone of fire.
  • The two single-bullet rows describe, respectively, the close-range-bonus-damage and point-blank-bonus-damage effects for this weapon.
  • None of the weapon's bullets are able to pierce through enemies.
  • The damage total listed in the simplified weapon stats is accurate for cases in which the player hits an enemy with exactly two invisible bullets and one visible bullet.

Commentary

  • Compared to Watchmaker's Shotgun (T10 Shotgun), T10 Combat Shotgun takes ~200% longer to reload. However, the SPEC weapon trades a 50° firing arc for a 20° cone of fire (resulting in greatly improved accuracy), has 25% faster visible bullets (but 20% less visible bullet lifetime), deals 4% more damage with invisible bullets, and can fire 250% more bursts before needing to reload.
    • Regardless of the applied elemental damage upgrades, one full burst of visible bullets from T10 Combat Shotgun deals ~34% less damage than one from Watchmaker's Shotgun.
