So I was just in a game of Kill Confirmed on Hijacked, unfortunately leveling my M27, and a guy on the opposing team was running around with an R870. After getting killed by him I immediately thought to myself, "man, it must be nice to just run around with an R870 on this map like that, too bad I'm so bent on golding everything. I bet that guy has triple my score, I know I would". So I went to check his score, of course, and noticed his was less than half mine AND he was performing in the lower tier of his team. I even found myself winning CQ battles against him...

Stuff like that just makes me think about how often I run into players that require crutches to do well at all; I mean, that kid NEEDS that gun for any ounce of hope.

So how about you guys? Any sightings that would make a better man cringe? And yeah, we all know target finder is gonna be a hit, but go for it, I can never read enough target finder hate.

The funny part is when you run across MMS sights on shotguns. Never understood the fascination with that. You have a shotgun so clearing a corner camper or something while going in a room should be a piece of cake. MMS sight doesn't center very well either on shotguns.

I say using the M27 is a crutch, as it has little to no recoil... why not use a gun that has higher recoil?

Now it depends on how good the enemy players are , but I assure you it helps.

Because using the AR with the lowest damage is gimping you, regardless of recoil?

Yeah, I have a tough time in Hijacked. Half the time I play that map, everyone is running shotguns and hipfiring everywhere. :(

Funny how you say you are worried about maxing your weapon, but how do you know he ain't doing the same thing? Why don't people think of that?

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

The 870 is the 1 k/d player's weapon of choice

Sometimes, the KSG just says 'no, you cannot kill this man because I will not allow it' though.

Near launch I didn't really have any problem with the R870, though that's because nobody really used it. But there has been a giant surge in people using things other than SMGs lately, and they all flock to the easiest setups. The R870 still isn't a huge problem, but even one person using it on Hijacked with a functioning nervous system is a nightmare. Because now you have to revolve your playstyle around avoiding 99% of the map or risk getting OSK out of nowhere.
