Ok, so it's been a while since I have been on Xbox forum, and read the Gears of War 3 Post. The one thing I noticed is all these post about shotguns. to be completely honest, I use to be one of those people would would **** about the sawed-off shotgun, and rant about how much I hate it, and how much it is over powered. Then one day I was like you know, they're probably not going to change it so I'll just deal with it, so I decided to do my best to best the sawed-off, and the one thing I found out, is that 1 out of 5 times the guy will beat me with the sawed off. Other than that, I reck just about every guy who try's to take me on. It all depends on how you use the Gnasher. It has better range (meaning you can start shooting them from farther away as the charge you with the Sawed-off and by the time they do the one last evade move to get to you, you'll either kill them or down them) and it has more shots. So say you get a un expected sawed-off that misses FOR SOME REASON! And then while he's busy reloading just unload all you got.
Well nuff said. Sawed-off's are plenty fair.
What I usually say to people who aren't as good with the Gnasher against the Sawed-off, is "If you can't beat 'em join 'em"
