No. It does the job that shotguns are supposed to.
People are just mad that their OP SMGs are being beaten at close range

How can a gun be OP when you need to think carefully about how you negotiate the map when you're using it? It dominates at one specific range and even then, if you miss the OHK then usually you're done for. By contrast, if I don't want to think, I just equip a PDW/MSMC, Dex and laser sight and it's instant easy mode.
The R870 is the gun I use on the small maps when the entire enemy team is running around with PDWs and MSMCs, laser sight, dexterity etc. Stops 'em dead and makes the game actually semi-bearable until one of the few good maps (i.e. any weapon type is equally viable) comes along.
A couple of the other shotguns need a buff.

I don't know why people think the PDW-57 and MSMC are so godly. They're worse than the MTAR, which is a middle tier assault rifle. If the best SMGs are comparable to a middle tier assault rifle ...

I think it's fine

Nope but it is hell of annoying.. -_- --- This is a message board. I don't care about my spelling or grammar on GFaqs. You don't like my grammar mistakes? Get over it.

Only in its effective range where shotguns are supposed to be overpowered compared to other weapons --- Nintendo Network ID: db-132 Incorrectly used terms start to lose their original meaning.

I see 59 votes for fair and balanced which means there are 59 people here who have the 870 as their gun with most kills. --- PSN- Erupt50 XBL- Erupt50

I did not find it OP before it was nerfed. It is certainly not now. --- Get confident, stupid.

No, it has less range and a worse spread than the Stakeout. A pump action should destroy up close imo. I'd rather see other shotties get buffed rather than have the nerf hammer take effect. Does the 870 get annoying? Yes. OP? Not even close.
