Yeah it's always cheap in the way that the RPG, drive by Sticky Bombs and the Mini-gun are all cheap, they all result in you dieing extremely fast and there is little you can do to counter them other than use the same weapons.

Yep, a person without a brain can use it. 

 

I use my sawed off shotgun because you can get easy kills with the auto shotty.

 

It should be unlocked at rank 150

What's an alternative to the auto shotgun,


I use sticky bombs all the time b/c they are really fun(suicide bombing and messing with friends)

I only use RPGs on vehicles, haven't unlocked the minigun

I use the auto shotgun a lot, but I never see anyone use anything else, and I see stickys/RPGs all the time

I don't see how those are cheap, mabye the auto shotgun.

But when someone kills me with all 3 of those weapons I don't think much of it

I mostly use it to maul people coming to run me over in their supercars. I like the Sawn-off Shotty more, but I rarely use it because I can't win against Assault Shotties.

I never start trouble online. But people who want to come up to me and start shooting, auto shotty is what they get. It's overpowered and useful. Granted I walk around a lot in free mode, so maybe I am looking for trouble....idk

I wouldn't say so, I don't think I've been klilled by that more than any other gun.

 

I use it at times, when someone is trying to ram me with a car, or excessively combat rolling  etc. Most of the time I use the AP pistol or an assault rifle.

My auto shottie gets used for up close killing, around rocks, corners, etc. But it's not my main weapons of choice. Combat MG and AP Pistol have LSPD tint unlocked, and I''m close with the carbine. Assault shotgun is currently orange tint, somewhere around a hundred seventy kills to unlock LSPD ting for it.

We are all lucky that Auto Shotty doesn't have Explosive Bullet option like in TBOGT or having a fire rate of TLAD assault shotgun.

The auto shotgun is a great weapon and may seem op if other players are killing you with it. However against npc enemies the auto shotgun is not op in the least bit.

Of all the weapons only the minigun and auto pistol seem unreal to me. The auto pistol has magical accuracy and power. Hand holding and firing a minigun is incredible. The other weapons often seem under powered and some enemies have magic armor that defeat .50 caliber bmg bullets.
Thanks then for the shotguns with the power 12 gauge buck shot provides. Without a semiauto tactical the auto shotgun is my first choice for close combat.

I would implore some caution, when mentioning "fairness", with firearms, in GTAO. I see the online side of the game going arms-less, if R* gets another hair up their arse.......

This is like saying the RPG is cheap. Better nerf it to Firework Launcher status so you have a pea shooter!

If it works for you, use it. It may be OP, but I mean, it's not like it's a weapon that only the rare few can hold, it's unlocked at like rank 35 right? Pretty much everyone has it then.

The only way I could ever find it cheap is to use it against somebody who doesn't have it, otherwise, you're just gimping yourself in a game that has built-in aimbot if you don't use it against people that have it themselves.

Why wouldn't you use the most effective weapon given your situation? Because of pride? If somebody wants to have a 'Pistol's Only' match, okay, but that's what deathmatches are for. That's not what freeroam is for. Rules don't apply there, there's too many things to take into account that you shouldn't really care. (Cops, namely)

'Don't feel ashamed for using something Rockstar put into the game, this isn't a first-person shooter.

But if you can kick ass without using the autoshotgun OP, then by all means, don't use it. But the weapon is there. I find that the game is a bit too 'casual' to really care for these things.

Really f*cking cheap. People run around with auto shotguns thinking they're so skilled and smart because others don't use it.

I don't use the auto shotgun, when some little toddler comes up with an auto shotgun, I keep out of range. Little kids helplesly trying to fire at you from war away, it's hilarious how much they suck when their shotgun isn't winning for them.

Also, kids who scream when I set jobs to Forced + Pickups instead of Owned. That way they can't run away to their miniguns and auto shotties and they get their arses butchered in semi auto pistol 1v1s.

Turn auto-aim off, if someone's using an auto shotgun chances are they can't aim for sh*t. Move to the side and they start crying as you get a headshot with an assault rifle.

I voted for always cheap. Why would anyone use any other shotgun at close range? It does just as much damage with one hit with any other shotgun, but in rapid succession. It needs to have a gap in between two rounds, to make it a bit more fair. This way it can be punished, if missed.

How about you learn how to play?

 How about you understand the advantages of a auto shotgun versus a pump action and post again.

If you use a pump shotgun you're dumb.

How is it cheap? You have to be pretty close and also if you aren't complete crap at aiming almost every gun will kill you before you can counter with a headshot.
