This 8 round, 12 gauge shotgun does not have a fast rate of firing due to its passive reloading, but in close combat, its penetration power is the top.

Room restrict shotgunBenelli M3 (Leone 12 Gauge Super) or well-known as Pump shotgun is a pump-action shotgun in Counter-Strike series and Counter-Strike Online.

Overview

Benelli M3 does high damage in close quarter combat, but its power decreases over range. Each round will spread into twelve pellets which makes it easier to hit the target. Its recoil does not change even when jumping, which will be an advantage for some users to perform the jump-and-fire technique. M3's magazine size is higher than its next generation, Benelli M4. Due to its pump-action, it has low rate of fire, much like a bolt-action sniper rifle. It is not heavy and is good for mobile. It can be fired while reloading.

After the Free Update patch, this weapon becomes a free default weapon in all player's inventories.

Disadvantages

  • Useless at long range due to high spread

Trivia

  • In real life, this shotgun has both pump-action and semi-automatic firing modes.
  • M3 shots cannot penetrate objects due to the nature of buckshots.
  • This weapon suffers from obstructive pumping animation used in 1.6 (blocking 3/4 of the screen including the crosshair); making it harder for players to focus and score some kills with it.
  • The obstructive pumping animation was removed in Condition Zero and reworked in Source so that the pump animation would only use 1/2 of the screen without blocking the crosshair.
  • In game, this weapon produces 8 pellets.
