The Sawed-Off Shotgun will ruin this game for me online. I've been there since day one of Gears 1, and this weapon is just a dealbreaker for me.
Every single person I see using the DBS, wall-bounces, and jump rolls to try to get close to you just to try, and one-shot you. Now, you try to shoot back and down them. But, if you don't get them down, by the time they get closer to you, and you realize you need to retereat, it's too late. You can't roll to the right or left because of the huge spread. And, if you roll back, it still get s you.
It's sad to see so many regular Gears players using this weapon. And, it's sad to see so many people resort to using this cheap tactic. You know it's cheap. You can defend it all day with the, "you shouldn't ;et me get so close then"excuse. But, you know deep down, it's cheap. Everytime you get a kill with it, you smile just a little inside because who know how cheap it really was.
When 95% of my battles are defending myself against a DBS user, it gets old.
This game will eventually become infected with DBS users, and it's pretty much al lyou'll see.
I'm just not excited to play this game online. And, I wasted $149.99 on the Epic Edition so, I feel really burned.
Nobody really goes for the power weapons anymore. There's no need to because you already spawn with one.
I said the same things after the beta was over.
