The sonic shotgun’s blast mechanic is pretty much useless right now with the new Virus mechanics, since you have to get right next to infected to blast them. It’d be much more useful if it had a bit of a longer range.
While I agree, I like the idea that the second is more of an assist weapon - albeit sort of useless considering where people generally camp on maps.
I honestly thought the secondary blast didn’t do anything. I’d unleash it looking at a wall right in front of me and no bullet holes would appear, and unleashing it front of a zombie never hurt it. I thought it was broken. Do I have to be standing less than a foot away?
