why are you using a crossbow?

Try the laser as well as long-barrel

use dexterity


something like this?

R870
longbarrel+laser


lightweight
scavenger
quick hands
dexterity

semtex
concussion

and I use a crossbow for those times when i know i am going to be out of range and for snipers and such. id love to hear a better way to handle that (seriously, no sarcasm intended)

run away or ignore them and then get closer

Don't bother with trying to combat the snipers. Just try to stay out of their line of fire. Your bread and butter is going to be flanking and firing off a few shots to clear out one or two guys from a space.

You can try to sprint around to wherever the snipers are and blast them, that's probably the best way to do it. Remember that some maps are just awful for shotguns. Turbine comes to mind.

Thats the problem with shottguns...no range. Crossbow sucks though, try the TAC-45 or Five-seven for those long-range battles if you have to...or just try and flank...stick to the buildings if need be

Do NOT use scavenger if you are having trouble staying alive...switch it for cold-blooded or something else.

Honestly I would drop quick-hands/scavenger/semtex/concussion for Flak jacket and Tac mask. Awesome lifesavers in objective modes


Play hardpoint...great for shotguns because the objective is always in a CQC area.

This, except use the R870. And have a clone setup with Ghost/Engineer instead of FJ/TM for lobbies that dont effectively use nades and stuns.

crossbow is fun when they're being generous with the stickies.

Crossbow is good for window campers on hardcore. Core probably doesn't kill them in one shot unless u stick them

Wouldnt it be easier/faster to just shoot them with a pistol or long range weapon you picked up?

Best shotgun class from my experience is:

870 - long barrel + laser

Ghost + lightweight
Scavenger
Your choice

C4
EMP

You don't want to be glowing on the radar while using a gun that can't shoot past close range. Lightweight makes you ridiculous with the Remington. Chuck EMPs and C4 like candy. I prefer engineer, but others like dex or excon.
