The Combat Rifle is a modified Assault Rifle similar in all ways except it has an underslung shotgun instead of an underslung grenade launcher.
The 22A4-2 Combat Rifle is similar to the 22A3-1 Assault Rifle but instead of the underslung grenade launcher it is equipped by an underslung shotgun attachment for situations when the enemy is way too close to you to use the grenade launcher. When multiple foes are close to you use the high powered shotgun blast to take them down. High damage and wide spread does the trick.
- Good magazine size
- Versatile enough to be used at all ranges
- Shotshells have great clearing potential
