I am an AR player, but for fun I've been switching my usual load outs for shotguns. And all I have to say is:
1- Not easy to get kills with shot guns
2- Allot more fun than I remember
3- Sound + flying opponent is great
4- Camping solution? Possible
In this video I was running sleight of hand, overkill and deadsilence with the USA12 plus 1887. Both are great but the 1887 is by far the most challenging and skilful of the SG's.
What I also found interesting is as soon as I started to get multi kills other players (enemies) started to bring out their shot gun classes as well, I guess to counter mine.
Note: video is a domination (barebones) game and I was running about killing and capping good stuff.
quickdraw and overkill are slot 2.. or were u using specialist?
correction "sleight of hand" sorry. I was playing barebones no killstreaks.
Barebones not HC . Better question, why not?
I have found that when using non-spamming shotguns, QD is an excellent 2nd perk. Some believe to the contrary, but when you ADS you bullet spread is a bit more concentrated.
I also used to run with dead silence (to get closer to the enemies) but once I would get range on the shotties I would switch to steady aim (for a tighter bullet spread).
It is funny that when someone is ding well with a shot gun, others will switch to a shot gun class (thinking: You wanna shotgun? I can shotgun as well!)
when i play shotty i use SoH (mostly) or extreme conditioning, Quickdraw and Steady Aim
I was trying to unlock dead silence pro. But steady aim is my next target.
Yea, it happened as soon as I started to kill more players. All of the sudden you start to hear the same sounds coming from the distance, most notably the blast from the USAS12 is unique and very loud!
Awww....I don't run SG's....so my opinion doesn't really matter. The only time that I will run a shotty is with Overkill. I love having an SMG/Shotty combo. My best was either MP-7 or P90 with SPAS12.
1. You are correct that when it takes 2 shots close quarters to kill someone in HC, it is hard to kill with them and your "aim" (whether hip firing or ADS) is really taken into consideration
2. I find it more fun because you are constantly in the enemies face, and not just popping people off from across the map
3. Love the animation that accompanies the deaths from a shotty. I too have been thrown across the map by someone who shot me in the face.
4. Camping solution?? Mine still lies with an RPG or SMAW. Easiest way to get them off their butts!
