Exclamation Shotguns!

I have tryed playing operation phoenix as a combat engineer for 35min's now and i've got no kills whit the USMC shotgun. this suck's shotguns need to pack a punch!! i'am talkig like from 15m or less one buckshot shuold kill everything! i even shot a mec form pointblank (like 1m) and he survived?!

so i really think shotguns need's tons more dmg from what they are now.

btw i loved playing street in 0.4 as insurgent policeman that shotgun and the map were a killer combination!

I'm pretty sure shotguns won't punch through body armor. Especially the buckshot, it's worthless.

no, against targets with body armor buckshots are really useless.. but without body armor they're 100% deadly..

Even with body armour, past like 3m the spread of the shot is gonna hit SOMETHING other than just the vest, and that close...well you'd wanna bring a pail and shovel to clean that up.

Buckshot will not punch through body armor. Slugs on the other hand will. I have yet to get a kill with a shotgun in PR. They are so underpowered I would honestly rather use a pistol.

What about replacing shotguns with M16s? It's them that make me not go engineer.

Every generation seems to have 20 to 40 I.Q. points less than their previous generation... They become more stupid by the hour.. - [R-DEV]Ghostrider

Last game I used a shotgun, I was 15 meters away and I shot this guy 5 times.
He turned around and killed me!

TIP: right click, going into shotgun sights, then fire, people die much easier this way, as you are much more accurate (buckshot)
