First game I was in a russian looking map. Guy with an 870 gold with long barrel killed me consecutively 12 times. 12. I was using the starter shotgun class where it shoots four shells at a time or something. It wasn't that bad. But I never killed this guy the whole game, he ended up 23-1
Next game I used the same shotty i'd been using after i backed out of Mr. 870's lobby.
Went from 0-16 to 26-7
I unlocked the 870 like 10 matches later. I got long barrel and laser sight within a few matches and was getting lightning strike packages every life with a SMAW as a secondary for long range.
Just ran around the map and was untouchable unless I spazzed out and missed a shot. It was totally eye opening. First off shotguns never acted that great.
I was a spas user in MW3, as my sig still says. Which I need to change. And I would praise Jeebus if I EVER had a game like I did in black ops 2 with the 870. They we're once a month if that with the spas, and that was with the damage "glitch" golden spas.
The whole time i'm getting 20 kill + games I'm still figuring out how the hell the create a class works, don't know any maps. I'm only a level 14 from one sitting but the whole time I never dropped below 16 kills a game. Nor did deaths ever go higher than my kills. It's insane.
Golden SPAS Count: 5 http://i42.tinypic.com/20fb79w.jpg Over 10,000 kills with it, over 1,000 headshots.
It's beyond useful, it's outright game breaking. Maybe I'm so used to ass shotguns that I can't comprehend one being as useful as an SMG but I mean I just don't feel it's fair.
It's only really great on small maps, and even then you won't do great every time. It's all in how you play the class. Gamebreaking; hardly. If it was gamebreaking there would be rooms full of 870 users, it's odd when you see more than 2 or 3 people using them. More often then not people use SMGs or ARs, not Shotguns.
OH LAWDY LAWD, I JUSS GOT KEELD BY A SHOTGUN KINSECUTIVLEE IN CLOSE COM-BAT! DAT 870 SHUR DUZ NEED NURFIN, HOW DARE IT BEET ME-MEEE-IN DAT DERE CLOSE COMBAT!
Suck it up. If shotguns were nerved even a little, we would only see SMGs and the occasional AR/Sniper being used. I fact, I actually support a BUFF to the Shotguns. Increase the hip fire spread a little on all so that it is like they are now with long barrel. KSG needs just a slightly longer 1HK range to the head/neck. This is the first game in a LONG time the had shotguns that are USEFUL in CQC.
