- In-game description
The Combat Chaser is a unique weapon featured only in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl.
The Combat Chaser is a modified Chaser 13 shotgun with increased damage per shot and reliability, although the mag capacity is lowered from 6 to 5-round. The Combat Chaser is one of the best shotguns of the game, having very good damage per shot (making it powerful for close-quarters to mutant hunting alike), although the mag capacity is fairly low and is outclassed by the SPSA-14.
- This weapon is held by Father Diodor, who can be found at a small camp in the Army Warehouses. Diodor is the target of one of Sidorovich's assassination missions, allowing the player to take Diodor's weapon when completing the mission.
- Another Combat Chaser can be found in a stash in the Wild Territory, alongside a very rare Mama's Beads artifact. The stash coordinates can be picked up from any dead stalker in the Wild Territory, Rostok or in Yantar.
- The fact that Father Diodor carries the weapon is very hypocritical, as he preaches the destruction of artifacts.
