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.
It's true LOL
I said the exact same thing in another thread several days ago http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/669289-call-of-duty-black-ops-ii/64957712
ITT: more people who had good killstreaks going, but weren't smart enough to avoid rushing around corners with their sniper rifles or whatever.
Shotgns have their place in this game, and aren't overpowered at all. Your own argument supports this; you never see a shotty user going 30-3 because the limitations of the gun put him at a disadvantage. The same isn't true for some random Scorpian RF or silenced MSMC jag.
When the shotty user kills you, it's because you put yourself at a disadvantage to him by not keeping your distance (or the crap spawns in this game birthed him right behind you...).
If you are tired of getting killed by shotty users, be careful around corners and use your tac grenades. A stunned shotty user will lose to anyone. That might mean you cant can't carry three attachments on your SMG, but you are a good, non-shotty user, right? So that will be no problem!
