Developer Treyarch is set to release the next Season 5 weapon known as the Marshal. It is a shotgun-pistol hybrid with the potential to set your enemies on fire. This could possibly be one of the best weapons you can use against zombies.

The Marshal can be acquired via an in-game challenge. If you just want to get your hands on it immediately, you can purchase it via Store Bundle.

Those who use assault rifles as their main weapon will be happy to know that the Agency Suppressor attachment now has a reduced Bullet Velocity penalty from -30% to -15%.
