I hipfire virtually the entire time I'm using a shotgun. I'll pop-shoot if the enemy's running away, although I'll generally end up switching to my rifle when that happens. --- 3DS FC - 5455 9389 5386 [www.vgdistrict.com] OH NO U DI'IN'T, GURLFRIEND
In Gears 2, I normally hipfire, because it's inconsistent no matter what I do, so I might as well get them off quickly.
In Gears 3, on those rare occasions where I used the Gnasher, I normally did the pop-shot thing. I'm guilty of hard-aiming with any weapon, due to being used to playing with rifles. --- Gamertag: Bossfella I am a conscience-free, malignant cancer on society.
Gears ( 1 ) - Pop Shot Gears ( 2 ) - Hip Fire Gears ( 3 ) - Pop Shot when I can wallbounce, hip fire almost every other time. Since it connects so well, I didn't feel the need to hard aim at all. --- First Blood
I normally quickly pop shot then hip fire then hard aim. Hard aim never with shotguns though pop shotting is far easier and smarter hard aim is really more of a rifles thing for pressure. --- The big H . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfxsN423EVs
