Re: Shotgun nerf

Oct 7, 2013

I'm surprised it took this long for people to ask for a shottie nerf.  The shottie is the best purchaseable weapon IMO.  It use to be in all my loadouts (before I knew better), but now I don't use it except in interrogations when it's a big part of my strategy to opening safes.  

 

This games evolved a bit from the early stages when everyone was crouch walking and playing with complete stealth.  Now crafter 2-3 is almost a MUST and molotovs, melee sticks, and bombs are abundant.  The shotgun is a great counter for a rushing melee stick user and is one of the only weapons that can stop a molotov user who is up close, dead in their tracks.

 

No nerf needed since it's a counter melee sticks and other CQC tactics.

Where's the no need to nerf thread when I need it? Oh wait... Too late...

I literally don't run a long gun anymore unless i want to use the hunting rifle. Revolver is on par with the other long guns. Just what I said would happen. Now I have extra points to spend elsewhere.

Quick buff the machete because melee is too difficult in this game!

Earlier a guy shot me with the shotgun. I shot him also with the burst rifle. I ran behind cover with a machete. He ran round the corner. I pressed square, and his shotgun shot killed me before I slashed him.

 

So apparently aiming with the shotgun is faster than a machete.
Makes sense I guess...

You know I think they should just swap the machete and shotguns points around.
It'd make them more balanced.

I bet there would be another nerf thread after the shotgun nerf.

Placing my money on the burst rifle. I feel like it would be the next gun to be nerfed.

You may have won the stupid statement of the day post.

 


he meant making "GOOD" arrows. you certainly don't go to the store and pay 50 bucks for wood fashioned arrows with sharpened ends or sharpened stone arrowheads.

Once the shotgun gets nerfed and some other weapons, you'll all be nerfing the pea shooter pistol.

 

You know theres an alternative to not getting downed by a shotgun, don't swing your modded bats at people continuously, actually shoot them.
