How to Use the M3 Shotgun

Using the M3 Shotgun on Nemesis

The shotgun can deal heavy damage against Nemesis, but has a low capacity, slow fire rate, and reloads very slow. It is not ideal to use it to hit Nemesis' weakpoint. It is best to use the shotgun once Nemesis has been put in his vulnerable state.

Using the M3 Shotgun on Enemies

The shotgun is powerful in close quarters. It can one shot normal zombies at close range and can hit multiple zombies from further away.

    • Anyone still alive? Hahahaha. I hope this pandemic doesn't evolve into a zombie apocalypse.

    • I can see marketing elements in the new part of the game. Currently, it is becoming more and more popular. All in all, I am not surprised it is a way to get extra money for game developers.
