Shotguns are pretty up imo. I've yet to see a shotgun guy dominate consistently. They'll have their good games here and there but for the most part, they are useless. I rather use my trusty AR/SMG. FAL FTW!!
I had to adapt. This is the first game I've ever used the shotty. Ive been an assault rifle cover n' aim kind of guy since COD4 but that wasn't working out so i had to try something new. And trust me, I've been killed by plenty of shotties.
no no no and no. I play nothing but TDM and Kill Confirmed where K\D is vastly more important then W\L. I'm constantly running around the map with the exception if I know for a fact someone is coming down a corridor i'll wait for them, otherwise Im always
on the move, hence why i make it a point to use Perk 1 and 3 greed so I can have both lightweight and extreme conditioning. AND, I don't dashboard or any other form of cheating to manipulate K\D. Furthermore, in my earlier post I was simply debunking the suggestion
that he made that stated using a shotty was not a kill profitable way to play the game. My statement telling him that he hadn't played against me yet was my way of saying, the way I play with a shotty IS valid AND yields a generous amount of kills, and if
he were to play against me he would see that.
Uh clearly not because ive yet to run into any that have be able to stop me and it's highly unlikely im just getting matched up with crappy players, especially considering that I never play Merc, which means even alone I play against clans and Im usually
playing with at least one other person. My statement that the game isn't Assault Rifle Challenge wasn't to mean that in order to be good at this game you have to use a variety of weapons. There's 100% nothing wrong with finding something that works and rolling
with it. I promise you what i do takes skill because there are plenty of guys running around with the same shotty getting their rear ends handed to them, and I was one of them when I first started using this play style. My point is each class of weapon requires
a different play style but none are more legit then the other. If you use an assault rifle or LMG you're no better then a sniper or someone using a shotty etc. I don't know anyone that purposely experiments with other weapons just to brag and say they do,
everyone i know does to it find the weapon and set up that yeilds them the most kills, so far this one is working out for me and until it stops, im not gonna stop using it. Call it whatever you want but
anytime you're getting the kind of K\D i'm getting in my games, there's skill involved.
[/quote]Lemmee guess, Domination? And you have a negative W/L? Somebody will check these stats, LOL. K/D means nothing. Going 100-0 with a hundred kills but losing the game is well, LOSING. I had only made the point earlier that you had not played Defy,
because YOU mentioned it in your post that he hadnt played you. If you read my first response to this thread, it stated shotties and snipers (IMHO) are "tougher" to use than an SMG/AR and I applaud people for putting themselves through these challenges. But
making a thread bragging about K/D is silly. Anyone can camp, dashboard, etc to manipulate K/D.
Cause I use a shotty? I mean i guess if your answer is to run away from a challenge rather then actually adapt to counter it then sure. Like it or not every weapon in the game has a viable use, some can be manipulated to be annoyingly cheap like quick scoping
with a sniper rifle but the shotty is meant for close quarters combat and thats the only way it's effective. The game isnt called Assault Rifle Challenge and thats why there's a variety of weapons to suit a variety of play types, each of which have a counter
if you're willing to learn and adapt. Cheap playing (camping, quick scoping, etc.) Never yeilds a quality number of kills and when a play style does, such as the way i play using the shotty, it's a pretty safe bet its a legit way to play the game. If you can't
figure out how to counter it, thats your problem and I'm not gonna feel bad playing the way I do.
