The DS-117 Shotgun, more commonly known as the Combat Shotgun, is a weapon featured in Doom (2016).
The shotgun fires 10 pellets with 22 damage each, and one random one that does 26 damage so it can do up to 220-246 damage a shot. But it has a rate of fire of 900 milliseconds, and has a fairly large cone spread.

The Combat Shotgun can be unlocked in the multiplayer at level 11. The player spawns with 30 shells (40 is the max ammo). It does 4 damage a pellet with 11 pellets a shot, with one doing random damage of 3-5, so it can do 43-45 damage a hit. Like campaign, it has a 900ms reload speed and a large spread. The weapon features two fire modes:
- Primary Fire - A pump-action shotgun with a tight spread of buckshot.
- Weapon Mod - Loads the shotgun with lethal high-explosive mortar shotshells (Hold the Weapon Mod button).
