"Best" shotgun now after Bee nerf?

Sorry if there are multiple of these topics, but yeah, I've heard the Bee was nerfed significantly, does that mean CC is no longer the overlord of all shotguns? I'm playing Gaige as a shotgun mainer so I'm wondering if there are any other goals to look for now.

On the PC, the Bee was nerfed but thus far there has been no nerf for the Xbox and PS3 versions of the game.

conference call and it's wild shot pattern is probably one of the best shotguns for an Anarchy + Close Enough Gaige. With or without the bee.

You really want a shotgun with high damage and high pellet count. With a high palette count you're guaranteed to hit multiple enemies. With high enough damage you can one shot multiple enemies just taking random shots.

There's always Skullmasher & Pitchfork as alternatives.

Oh, I'm playing on the PC version, didn't realize that it never occurred on the console, just wanted to post here since more folks play the console. Whoops!

It's okay.

Against big bosses, CC is still top dog. All the pellets will hit.

Against normal enemies, Ravagers and Quads are probably the best. The unique Blue Triqueta from the Clan Wars quest is also very good. Sledges Shotgun is a solid choice, as well as the Striker. It depends a bit on what class and build you are using though.

Last, the Minecraft shotgun and Miss Moxxi's Heartbreaker have always been decent stand-ins for the CC, and still are.

IMO, there's not much better than a Ravager for pure damage. The Slow Hand is great if I want to hit them with an elemental, but not for much else.
