The new Cayo Perico Heist in GTA Online has introduced plenty of exciting weapons for players to collect, including the Combat Shotgun. Here’s what you’ll need to find it.

After months of anticipation, Rockstar has finally rolled out a massive update for GTA Online, featuring a map expansion, a brand new heist, vehicles, and much more.

The Cayo Perico Heist, which features cameos from the likes of Dr. Dre and Scott Scorch, has also provided players the chance to discover some new weapons on El Rubio’s island.

The golden Perico Pistol is also available in the Cayo Perico Heist.

Along with the golden one-shot Perico Pistol, a Combat shotgun can also be unlocked while playing through the latest GTA Online Heist.

The Combat shotgun has appeared in previous Grand Theft Auto titles such as GTA IV but, surprisingly, it hasn’t been available in GTA Online until now.

This new weapon can spawn at random locations around Cayo Perico, making it quite difficult to find if you don’t know where to look. Here’s what you’ll have to do to get one.

How to find the Combat shotgun in GTA Online

  1. First, you’ll need to start the Cayo Perico Heist to travel to the island.
  2. You will then need to complete the first few Heist steps, to get the chance to explore El Rubio’s mansion.
  3. Ahead of the Heist finale, the Combat Shotgun can be found leaning against one of the walls or surfaces in the compound.
  4. The southern area of the compound is the most common location for the gun, but you may need to look around.

This new weapon performs slightly differently from the other shotguns in its class, as it can a lot of consistent damage with its high fire rate.

After you unlock the Combat Shotgun in the Cayo Perico Heist, it will be available for purchase at any of the Ammu-nation stores, for a price of $295,000.


Valorant players demand Ascent rooftop fix after Raze “super boost” breaks the game

A new Raze “super boost” taking the Valorant community by storm has resulted in players pleading with Riot Games to fix the rooftops on the Ascent map.

Boosting is a controversial, yet intriguing part of most tactical shooters and Valorant is no exception, with players using character models or tricks with abilities to reach new heights.

However, one such boost may be too game-breaking for its own good, leading players to call for Riot to remove it from the game.

The so-called “very illegal” boost was posted to the Valorant subreddit by user Nikkyy and shows how Raze can access positions that make her the most lethal threat in the game.

‘Very illegal’ Raze boost on Ascent from VALORANT

Basically, by performing a satchel boost with her Blast Packs in combination with her Showstopper Ultimate, Raze can travel insane distances. And while it can take a lot of practice to get this right, the end result can be devastating for enemies.

After performing a satchel boost to get on top of a wall on Ascent, players can perform the super rocket boost with the Showstopper to essentially reach the skybox and fire down onto unsuspecting players.

As you can see in the clip, the entire enemy team was like fish in a barrel and fell one-by-one to the Raze player who had a great line of sight from so high up. In the end, the player only died because they started tunnel-visioning on another Agent.

Even the player’s own teammates were shocked at the clip, as they can be heard saying “what the f**k Raze?”

In the comments, users started calling on Riot to fix the map. “These boosts on Ascent rooftops need to be fixed asap,” one remarked.

“This is very illegal. Tremendously illegal. There hasn’t been a more illegal boost,” another added, seemingly mimicking the talking habits of a former Celebrity Apprentice host.

Hopefully, with how much attention the post has received, the devs investigate the issue and prevent the boost from being an issue before it starts affecting more ranked matches.
