The KSG was not designed for hardcore. In fact, none of the shotguns were. You are at a complete disadvantage if you use that gun their. Think about it for a second, is it really any different than using a pump action SMR?

Why not just play regular modes? Hardcore sucks anyways. Have fun waiting to respawn. lol
the respawn cycling was taken out
Oh... so they finally realized that nobody wants to wait to re-spawn and that forcing people to do so is what was killing Hardcore for being truly popular for the most part?
Yes they did and its actually nice. If someone tries to team kill at the start they get killed too and I think it counts into the 3 strikes you get before you are kicked as 2 since you killed a teammate and yourself. Also killing teammates doesn't count into K/D so people can't try to wreck someones stats. The only bad thing about the respawn timer being gone is if you switched classes for shooting down air support or something you don't get a chance to switch back when you die because it is almost instant respawn.
I'll use it in hc.only because i don't have iron sights unlocked yet for the ballista.
It can be a pain in the arse to use in core. way too inconsistent. lag/lag comp makes it near unusable unless you treat it like a knife class, but then the S12/R870 do a better job. Outclassed by the ballista,let alone snipers in general. Its easier to rail-gun people with a DSR/ballista then use the ksg. at the range ksg can 1 shot on core, i could take the ballista/DSR/R870 an do the same thing twice as better and fun.
