Arguments 1,2,3

 

All very good responses.

 

Plus you'd have to be well financed for the full-body armor, the many bullets and the illegally obtained minigun. Add the weight of all that sh*t, it's just simpler to go in light and quick rather than carry around all that sh*t that slows you down and effectively kills you anyway.

 

Easier said than done, but i'm sure there's better ways. And yes, the trust factor would put you on shaky grounds too. A very well thought out plan, after 2-3 years or more, is far better than an all out war scene outside of a busy bank in the city/country with no real objective other than grab cash and worry about the rest when you get it.

 

The Town is a pretty good movie i have to say.

 

 

^ I like the "throw the paint on your helmet"... Bloody good suggestion :D

Man that poll sucks. Can't vote "no" without having to choose a 2nd option. Which would mean i want it nerf therefore i can't vote.

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. 

Love that idea! Nothing would be funnier than blasting whiners with a dragons breath round. shotgun-shells.gif

@ Marco........There was a group a 10 yr old kids up in Yonkers NY a few summers ago who were playing army with airsoft guns......some if not all are extremely realistic........some old lady called the cops and said there was a group of kids with machine guns running around the neighborhood.....these  kids got confronted by 12 members of the yonkers swat team.....probably could've been killed in the process  if one of the cops  who had an eagle eye realize the guns were toys.........As far as mini guns in anything the police  would be the least of your problems

 

Jebuz huh... Not much needs to be said about that one.

imo dragons breath should be 2 rounds and they catch on fire as if you poured gas on them and lit it.

I stumbled into a free roam battle about a week ago.. was trying to get back on my Akuma and some dude got on me in close range. I immediately went to my assault shotgun and turned him into liverwurst.  He was not happy.. especially as to how I killed him with one shot, "Get back here.. what did you shoot me with???"

 

[edit] I should have gone back and obliged his request since he wasn't chasing after me but I had things to do, and he had his own battle to wage.

No, it shouldn't be nerfed and it's not overpowered. Shotguns were meant to cause a lot of damage. It already has it flaws. It has short range and it's slow. If you have a problem with people using shotguns, simply stay out of range.

 

Edit: I forgot you said assault shotgun. Nevermind, it's quick but it still has short range, so it should stay how it is.

The assault shotgun is not overpowered dipstick it's perfect: deadly up close and useless beyond short range. 

 

This isn't COD where all the weapons are just re-skins of one another and none offer anything different .

 

The whole point of the final tier of weapons (assault shotty, AP Pistol, advanced rifle etc) is that they are significantly better than the starting guns, otherwise we'd have no reward for playing and no incentive to level up.

 

OP do not try and start another thread making out that your half arsed beliefs are the general consensus, I'd hate for you to lose all your dignity.

if the fire rate was as slow as it was in TBoGT, it would be fine.

seriously, you can literally just hold down the button and somehow you'll end up destroying someone who has a perfect aim on you with the MTAR

Assault Shotgun is a DISGUSTING weapon but pretty fun to use lol. 32 shot mag is ridiculous, but then you get ridiculous mags for a lot of guns on this game.
 

 

 

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

 

Because you shot them long range, then they respawned 2 ft away from you? Well that question took 0.2 seconds to answer.

It is perfectly fine in auto aim.

 

it IS overpowered a bit in free aim death matches. 

 

free aim free roam its pretty easy to stay out of range of it. 

 

since only a small % of people play free aim death match I dont think they should nerf a gun because its overpowered for <1% of the population of gta online.

 

I play free aim only for most part and finding a decent death match is few and far between so I saw keep it how it is cause I love using it in free aim survival to rape the AI.

I thought it was pretty fair before I got the extended magazine for it. 30 shots in a row without reloading and the thing is the deadliest weapon in the game. thing is ridiculous and I love it.
I one hit a dude from the top of a roof shooting down on him with the assault shotgun. range is nuts too.

I'd vote no but it wouldn't let me. But since this baby has limited range, I don't see why it should be nerfed.

It would be much funner to pvp with a "normal" shotgun where spamming it isn't necessarily what matters. How it is now, it allows for less skill kills. Not that that is inherently bad, just not my preference.
