Combat Shotgun Buckshot
Tweaks the CSG’s primary fire to feel better and more effective at mid-range and more consistent at close range, without increasing damage to single targets. Remains low utility, but feels a lot better when you do use it.
Optional full-auto tweak makes the full-auto mod into close-range crowd-shredder and single-target melter (able to kill Heavies in <1 second at point blank) to make it feel more comparable in utility to sticky bombs. Risky point-blank usage with the mastery is just non-stop carnage.
Installation (Microsoft Store version not supported):
Download the latest version of DoomModInjector, and place it in your DOOMEternal install directory (e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\DOOMEternal\).

Run EternalModInjector.bat, the game will launch automatically
From now on you can launch the game normally as long as the game doesn’t update!

Delete or move all mod files from your Mods folder and run EternalModInjector.bat
Verify your game files and confirm that the game launches and runs without issue
Open DoomModInjector.dat and change “:RESET_BACKUPS=0” to “:RESET_BACKUPS=1”
