The shotguns have been horrible since halo 2 to this date, halo ce shotgun was perfect, why did they get rid of it, and never took it back?

Because having a shotgun with 12 bullets is extremely over powered? Don't believe me? Go play Call of Duty.

I really don't think Halo 4's shotgun would be OP with a range buff

Besides the fact that shotguns don't use bullets, you're missing the point. He's talking about the shotguns in Halo (and pretty much every other modern FPS games) where the pellets vanish after going about 5 feet.

Game is pretty old but Rainbow six Vegas 2 got shotguns right. They actually have distance.

This is not an adequate argument. At the rate 343 is going, it's going to be the same franchise.

Look at how much Call of Duty is in my Halo 4.
