We all know that the Assault shotgun is quite overpowered. Should something be done about it or is it no big deal?

It's not really overpowered. It's a f*cking shotgun. If you don't want to die in a close range battle by it, don't go into close range battles.

I rarely see people use it, why would you be close enough for them to use it anyway?

Over powered? Uhhhh......lolwut? Throwing a napkin has more range than the Assault Shotgun does. It's TTK (Time to Kill) is not much more than most other weapons if used properly. Lets not start nerfing weapons, whiners like you end up having games unbalanced. Leave my weapons alone and learn to use it yourself.

Well when I use it which is only when its used on me it = instant death to anyone within 100 yards. It can outshout an advanced assault rifle from range. I play free aim and play deathmatches and it is frowned upon to us it because its just too easy and not much you can do when your up against it other than use it yourself or get a quick headshot before they can get a shot off. I guess in auto aim it doesnt matter as much because you just lock right on to their head anyway so its instant kill no matter what gun your using.

You do know that if one pellet hits your head, from any range, its a instant kill.

If anything, the pump-action should have its range toned down some.

Exaggeration much? The gun can not out shoot an advanced rifle nor is it an instant kill. Why are you even using the advanced rifle anyway? Carbine is better for freeaim. You must be a baddie. Past 50ft the spread is as big as a bus, try it before you spread sh*t rumors.

Not whining at all, I just always hear people complaining about it. But again this is free aim so for most of you who play auto aim you wont understand because any gun is OP in auto aim.

It is not a long ranged weapon. Yes, even shotguns at Assault Rifle range can hit you and do damage to you, but more damage is done at closer ranges.

 

It's not overpowered in the slightest, if you're tired of getting killed by it, stop going into close range battles. It really isn't that difficult. The only time an AS ever kills me is when I run up on a guy and I deserve to die from it then.

 

That's like saying that a sniper rifle is overpowered because you can kill people from farther away. It's the purpose of the weapon and you let yourself die.

 

ITT: OP upset about being bad.

The big pump-action is better imo, the range on it is ridiculous.

You forgot an option for "selected no above" in the second poll. It forces you to suggest a way to nerf it.. although Im sure that was your intention.

 

Its a shotgun, this isnt call of duty, they go beyond 5 feet and dont spread out like a blunderbuss.

 

 

All your stats are invalid because out of 6 people who voted 4 said no, they all had to water down your second part... many people simply wont vote because they dont want to select something to be nerfed when it doesnt need to be.

 Not complaining at all was just looking for peoples opinions.

 

Anyone that would like to 1v1 me and see how bad I am feel free to send me your PSN.

 

Also guessing most of you dont play deathmatch in free aim

Proceeded to call me a CoD fanboy afterwards, yet is challenging me to 1v1's.

 

Bro, Elemental, might be about time to chillax a bit.

No, the assault shotgun has short range, so just stay out of range.

I enjoy lighting up waves of enemies in cars in survival mode way too much for you crybabies to get that taken away too. One gun in this game that actually feels badass and you want to make it a pussy gun? No. Get out.

I think the assault shotgun is pretty accurate in terms of damage....I think they should give us the option of choosing different exotic ammunition for it..........such as 12ga armor piercing incendiary, 12ga sabot slugs, 12ga double slug, and regular old 12ga armor piercing.

Nope. Bad idea. Not in GTA at least.

Your probably right with all the babies that would cry from being shot with high impact ammunition.

Any reasoning for that? Not saying you're wrong or anything.

Just too many people say nope bad idea but don't give a reason why. Makes them look like dicks.
