I haven't tried the shotgun yet, I'm waiting to complete my first 12 week cycle before I get into the crazy kill happy builds! xD

I've got my Ram-bow loadout lined up, looks like I'll have to get myself a shotgun loadout running too!

Shotgun is pretty awesome, second favorite behind the miltary rifle. May use it tonight, its fun and as sandman said its great with the shorty.

I like it especially for when people want to rush me. I'll just sit there like I'm pinned and then pop one right in their face when they get close and can't escape. Just let them crawl around me and wait for someone to run up and try to revive them and repeat.

 

My only two issues are that sometimes I get no hitmarker when I shoot people point blank which leads to my immediate death, and when I buy ammo while I'm dead I have to switch to it and reload when I respawn as it won't automatically start that way which has lead to me pulling out a shotgun with no bullets in the clip in the past.

It's the ultimate close range thing in the game.

 

Becaus it is the first purchasable available for custom loadouts, I used it at the beginning, then switched to the flamethrower and others. Lately, after having tried everything in the game, I decided to go back to the shotgun. Then I was surprised by its rate of fire. I'm gonna use it more in my next games Smiley Happy I'm gonna vary between it and the flamethrower... prefering the shotgun, but using the flamethrower when I need that extra loadout point for first aid 2.

 

And the El Diablo for long range maps Smiley Happy

Discovered a new bonus, tonight.

 

Find an enemy healing his teammate?  Two-down in one shot.  An execution and a down.  Just aim at their combined CoM.

I like what you think, and that's what I would do. Kudos!

I just started using this today! I've been using the flamethrower and the El Diablo since I started playing the MP so I decided to try the shotgun and my goodness it is AMAZING! The perfect weapon for me when you down someone and want to use them as bait.
