How the hell do you use the KSG-12?

It seems like everytime I shoot somebody, the shot doesn't register. Is this just bad hit detection or am I using it wrong?

Aim down sight.
It shoots slugs, which are like sniper rifle bullets, so you need to ADS to get a good shot.
Think of it as a marksman weapon.

IDK. You have to literally line it up PERFECTLY on them or it doesn't register. The thing has crazy good range, but feels ridiculously inconsistent, which is why I don't use it very often. Some say it's because it doesn't "spray" and it's only a single slug, so you really don't have room for error for splash damage.

You need a good connection for it to be effective. But it depends on the class you're making.

I like a set up with laser sight, suppressor, and red dot. I don't really like the irons for it, but if I manage to get used to them I'd switch out the red dot for a stock. Suppressor on a KSG makes it a pretty good flanking gun. Allows for slightly crappy aiming because you don't have to basically quickscope people in front of you...and you can do a little more aiming.

Lead your shots. Even with a good connection.

Basically it relies on your lag connection. If you get lag comped a lot don't use it.
Anyways it got lots of range but up close its horrible. Try to use it like a sniper and always ads

lol.

The KSG works fine; I've never had a problem with it, even on terrible connections.
It's also just as deadly as the Remington up close. I tend to run the KSG with a laser sight and a long barrel to cover all my bases, but I can't even begin to tell you how many kills running up on a fool and hip firing a slug into their neck has gotten me.

The KSG was the easiest weapon to gold, in my opinion. Bear in mind, I'm primarily an AR guy.
