It still can compete with power weapons. It was not enough of a nerf. It will still be abused heavy. They added a little spread but nowhere near enough if it still has shotgun range. --- Pray the day for another Jet Set Radio game, "Boondocks" season 4, and people to learn about good rappers EX: MFDOOM, Elzhi, Gangstarr, Substantial.
I'm not feeling the nerf. Not saying it's a bad thing but I hate when developers do that. Something is so powerful or handy that it's considered "op" and annoying, so it gets nerfed. Battlefield 3 left a bad after taste. The vanilla version started out very good until they decided to start nerfing/buffing guns and gadgets. Over time, that caused me to go from playing frequently to not playing at all. I hope halo 4 doesn't take the same path.
