I know I'm definitely in the minority here but I actually enjoy the Butcher. My butcher anyways. I never use shotguns really except on flesh enemies for some reason and mine just happens to be a fire version so it works perfectly for that and my clip never runs out without killing the enemy. Even when they have a shield I never have issue. Obviously before the bee nerf CC was cool to destroy everything. Ever since then though I've kind of shy'd away from shotguns and stuck to have a variety of stuff. I'd rather not rely on one weapon or setup. Even if it destroys everything.
If you think the CC is a turd, then I strongly question your knowledge of this game. --- Would you like to do battle with a Brony riding piggyback on a Rabid Stalker? If the answer is no, you are sad, and I've no desire to speak with you further.
