Wow, just wow.
They were utter **** in MW3, sub-par in BLOPS, balanced in MW2 (save the pre-patch dual-wield sniping 1887s, that was OP), and balanced in MW1.
Finally comes a game where shotties are a very great choice to counter the almighty SMGs that are always used in every CoD, and people start crying about it?
Get real.
This is tricky disco.

granted i get pissed/agitated when i get killed by one, it's working as intended in CQC
Super Mario Bros. 3 is better then Super Mario World
People who agree: 35 PM if you think so as well

The 870 is so damn inconsistent for me that I laugh when someone says they are OP.

When the lag is working against you, they seem like super weapons.

But yeah, in general they're fine.

They have complained about them being overpowered for the past several games, MW3 included, so why are you surprised?

My youtube. I just started it, but am making gameplay vids. Nothing special. Check it out.

Mw3 shotguns were great. The problem is that lag is a shotgun's worst enemy and mw3 was just full of it. The long shots you could get with the pump actions, or hell even the usas seem to be double what you're capable of getting with the remington in this game.

imo, the shotguns are definitely underpowered in this game, but still usable.

Stopped reading when you said "balanced in MW2".
