The KSG is overpowered!!!

Now before you all start saying " if they nerf the ksg then they better get rid of quickscoping " the ksg is a shotgun, not a sniper. It has crazy range, NEVER gets hitmarkers ( gets less hitmarkers then the ballista or the DSR does ) and also has a fast fire rate. So I dont understand why you guys complain about snipers being like shotguns even though the ksg is acting like and OP sniper/shotgun combination

It fires a slug instead of buckshot. It's a one shot headshot but over 20 meters or so it becomes a two shot kill for the body. Quit complaining. Plus its kind of a marksman shotgun.

The KSG is quite Balanced first of all, quickscoping isn't.

The KSG fire's a slug round which gives it the range but it isn't effective at all ranges only close to mid (Better at mid.) The KSG is less accurate at when firing from the hip, but the KSG also has to hit dead on to kill the person in one hit. Usully if it isn't dead on then you won't even hit anything.

When a player quickscope's at mid to short range it ruins the balance between snipers and CQC weapons, mainly because snipers are a one shot kill based on what weapon you are using. Also it is way too accurate for not actually aiming at all. Quickscoping rewards the player instead of punishing them for not being precise or using marksmanship. (IMO Sniper's shouldn't QS at any range, they should be used how a sniper was meant to be used)

Quickscoping shouldn't ever be a substitute for a sidearm in CQC Battle.

DSR: OHK is from the waist up. (At any range)

XPR: OHK is from the chest up. (At any range)

Ballista: OHK is from the chest up. (At any range)

KSG: OHK is from waist up. (Close - Medium Range)

Well us quickscopers dont need to take our sweet time to aim. We know exactly where the crosshairs will be at so we dont have to aim in for 10 seconds in order to be accurate. Btw this whole aim assist thing is BS. It doesnt do crap on BO2 it only helps on MW3 and MW2

It honestly doesnt. I'll admit that QS'ing is way too easy in MW3. But in BO2 the aim assist really doesnt help unless your hardscoping.

hardscoping... it is called Sniping.

Aim assist and Bullet Magnetism kicks in, even if you are aiming in or not.

You mean use the gun how it was designed, to pick people off from long range.
