I swear the only reason 95% of people use shotguns is because they're not good enough with other kinds of guns. They rely on getting lucky one shot kills. Only a handful i've ever seen go positive.
This is not me complaining about shotguns being OP or something. I'm talking about the guy who goes 8-25 and his 8 kills are lucky 1 shots because he was sitting in a corner. Or better yet, the guy who blindly rushes with horrific aim but gets those lucky kills. That's the best. --- "Persistence until excellence." http://www.youtube.com/user/supercoolisaac

Then quit running into bad players.

Yeah people who main the 870 tend to be those 30-30 players at best. They're clearly bad, but never fail to ruin a kill streak by hipfire without a laser from a range that I couldn't even get a hitmarker at --- He's a well respected man about town, Doing the best things so conservatively

I don't know if you have used any shotgun outside of the 870, but they're all pretty bad. Sure, every now and again you'll get some serious killing sprees, but the main problem is that the maps are designed for only SMGs to succeed. They're JUST large enough to make using a shotgun worthless most of the time. --- Russian is my first language, so yes there may be a spelling error or two. I <3 Jesus.

This is true for almost all games not just COD. Guys who are bad with pretty much all other weapons migrate to the shotgun because it atleast gives them a chance at getting some 1 shot kills and not having to be great at aiming while doing it. --- GamerTag - YELARAKA (LeAdEr Of Da ReDsKrEeN kLaN) RecentGames - GER, 007Legends, NCAA13, BF3, BOPS2

Ya they are pretty annoying. Most of my killstreaks are ended by shotgun users.

I always go 70+ kills in dom with a full party. Overall k/d is a 3.82. 870 k/d is a 4.07.
I've used nothing but shotguns since WaW, starting with Trenchgun with bayonet. --- <3 TGZ
