Anyone have a good setup for riot shields?

I use my grenade launcher with my AR but I hate wasting grenades on riot shield dudes because they really annoy me and I run out too fast or have to run around in circles when they are trying to hit me.

I was wondering if anyone knows if the metal piercing bullets work on riot shields? I like using MMS + Launcher ammo but had to switch to add metal piercing bullets since the riot shield dudes kept chasing me around while I am trying to kill other dudes which leads me to a very vulnerable state. Anyone know? Also share any good setups you have for this with AR or other weapons that can take down these guys.

Check to make sure the riot shield isn't a distraction for his teammates. if he's alone, circle strafe him and shoot any openings you get. Try to avoid being too close in case he's got a combat axe to quickly throw at you.

If he's got teammates, consider trying to get away to a better position. Otherwise try to target the teammates first and watch out for the riot shielder suddenly taking advantage by switching to his secondary. If you're quick, you might be able to get the shielder as he's switching weapons.

Otherwise, shields aren't as much of a threat as they were in MW2 and 3.

FMJ does not work against shields. Use C4 instead, since that is, and always has been a riot shielder's biggest weakness. Just watch out for flak jacket users, since C4 won't do jack to them.

The bow works against riot shields. One shot kill always.

Hmm ok but I did have a guy kill me repeatedly with bows on that yacht map, like one shot one kill. Dont remember what perks I used but I thought it was flak jacket. I was in one of the doorways and he shot the shield always and I died ;(

I was playing against a clan of riot shield users yesterday. They were all gathered in a small room and crammed it with claymores and bettys.
I used engineer, black hat and smaw.
It was wild, hillarious fun. :-))
I was laughing so hard that i couldnt counter them, when they came after me.
