Shotguns will never be decent again, they reached its peak in MW2 / rant

ITT: People who suck with shotties.

Shotguns have been fine since CoD4 with the exception of WaW only having one barely usable shotgun.
Blue, yellow, pink, whatever, man, just keep bringing me that.

Shotguns as secondaries is a pretty stupid idea.

I remember one time in MW2 SnD I had my AA-12 (after I finally got tired of getting killed by **** with shotguns and started to use them myself) with extended mags and I killed 4 guys in less than 2 seconds LMAO, it was on Favela.

Remember the Model 1887 days in MW2 before they got nerfed? Good times..good times.

They were a ****ing nightmare and so fun at the same time. The model was a damn sniper than a shotgun. I'm still talking about the weapon till this day.

Um......there are devastating shotguns in this game.....they are just called sniper rifles now
Insanity leads to chaos then to solitude, the fruitless effort of adding meaning to what is meaningless!!!

End of the day, all TC is saying is that the mechanics of MW2's shotguns should be used if they're going to be primary weapons. I agree 100%.

Just use the KSG. This game is pretty much about 50% latency and 50% skill. The KSG is insta-kill short-medium distance on normal, 2-4 long range (With long barrel). Also, use the toughness perk. With decent latency I usually have enough time to waste any SMGer that started shooting me thanks to toughness.

The only time this gun sucks is when the latency factors in and you shoot phantoms.

While I certainly would like if shotguns became as effective as they were in MW2 (but as primaries), the ones in Black Ops weren't terrible. The Stakeout and SPAS 12 were pretty well the best shotguns outside MW2 (since CoD4 anyway, dat Trench Gun, you don't know broken until you've used that thing).

I'm not completely disappointed in the shotguns in this game, the 870 at least feels pretty solid, almost like the Stakeout.

Don't get me wrong, I have absolutely no problem with the beast known as the 870. Just give it MW2 Spas range, and it'll be perfect. I can't stand the other shotguns, though.

Yes, please continue to assume that you know how I play. You only make yourself look like an idiot.
