Shotgun Pumping

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone who reads this thread. I have a question about shotgun pumping. As you know already you can hide and shoot behind covers such as walls and cars. Well I noticed that all of shotguns are pumped after each shot when you are blind shooting even if shotgun doesn't even has a pump mechanism. This pumping makes shotguns less useful in gunfights because of their slow rate, wide range, and short reach. With this mechanic it's much more easier and faster to kill an enemy with a headshot using pistol. Why did the R* did such a thing to shotguns? I don't believe it's a glitch because R* made all of the episodes with this mechanic. Plus it's just looks ridiculous.

The reason R* did this is for balancing reasons. I can imagine trying to blind fire a auto-shotgun without hurting yourself. They had no othe options when they were developing gta 4. All shotguns in gta 4 have this wierd pumping style even the other shotguns in the other epsiodes. which really looks ridiculous when your pumping a AA-12 shotgun in Tbogt. But they had no other options so they had to go with this idea.

Well R* could have either made character hold it with two hands all of the time, or disable blind shooting with automatic shotguns, or at least make cooldown time for shotguns without pump mechanism. And about balancing purposes. So the R* thinks that blind shooting with auto-shotguns is overpowered and unrealistic but shooting with RPG with one hand behind a corner is okay which would have probably ripped characters' hand off.

Damn that's so true. Idk rockstar can be so confusing when it comes to their games. I'm not sure what the hell happens at their office. Mabye they all ran out of ideads for the shotgun and coulden't fix that. And for the RPG they just said f*uck it mabye nobody will notice about the balancing problems.
