Say Goodbye To The Pump, And Hello To The Combat Shotgun!

Many are devastated by this news, so are we. Season 9 brings us a futuristic theme, which is probably why they vaulted the Old School styled Pump! This was the go-to for up-close combat, now the go-to for up-close combat is the”KSG” like shotgun!

Here’s the Combat Shotgun:

Now here’s the KSG from Black Ops 2:

Epic Announced that they wanted “the beginning of each season to feel fresh” by removing the pump:


We want the beginning of each Season to feel fresh and allow for a new gameplay experience along with all the new Seasonal content. Whether its new cross-map mobility, new weapons, or just new places to drop – you should feel like there is plenty to explore and experience. Specifically when it comes to Pump Shotguns, they stand out significantly: they currently account for over 26% of eliminations in default playlists, with the next weapon type not even coming close. Rather than nerfing the Pump Shotgun to a point where it no longer lives up to its fantasy, our preference is to return it to the vault, giving us an opportunity to revisit the general balance of the item, while introducing a new shotgun

Streamers sending their condolences

Streamers like Ninja, SypherPK, and Courage were not happy about the Original Pump being vaulted. This is what they had to say:

What do you think about this? Will they ever bring back the Original Pump just like the Drum Gun?
