When did Shotguns get a nerf?

I don't remember shotguns being this bad, I thought they had a good base TTK in close quarters?

 

 

 

All three shots had a clean hit on the target. He had no hp left afterwards, but it's still absurd it takes 4 (bullpop) shotgun shots to kill someone?!

 

(Go to hell Smosh)

Well... that's new

 

maybe you should stick with the sawn off shotgun or pump shotgun, those have never betrayed me

Yea....I notice it too.

 

I play with strictly my musket and there are no more on shot kills. Not even against lower level players.

 

I was getting killed when I normally would just blast away.

 

I am very patient but if they F with my musket than I'm pretty much done.

The Bullpup Shotgun is one of the weakest shotguns sadly.

Maybe you're right, but I just switch to the "shotgun class" since I was engaging in close quarters. Unfortunately the game by defaults gives me this shotgun. I'll have to edit it out of my custom weapon loadout if it's just this shotgun that's sh*t.

I preferably wouldn't of chosen this shotgun for my battles, but the game by default had this one loaded up for me on the weapon wheel. It's just absurd how a pump shotgun is that bad. 4 shots up close, thats a slower ttk than any automatic weapon

The Assault shotgun, is my favorite gun in the entire game...Would be a shame if it got nerfed to hell.

The bullpup is dogsh*t why would you even use that? Lol use the assault or heavy or the db shotgun that'll get the job done.

In singleplayer choose the weapons you want in your wheel

 

after doing this save the game if you want and enter online, you will notice that all the weapons you chose in singleplayer will be the default ones in online

Not if you shoot em in the head. KSG has some significant range.

that beast got nerfed back in 2014, it used to have the range of a assault rifle and got the nerf due to people bitching about it!

 

i play everyday and havent noticed any nerf on the shutgun.

So only bullpop shotgun is unbalanced? Will other shotguns do their job point blank vs Assault rifles?

It fires a buckshot shell and has good spread and fast rate of fire and will put most people down after 2 shots, 3 at most unless there is crazy lag. Great gun for shooting people out of an Insurgent or Armored Kuruma.

Heavy Shotgun is 2nd in line, it shoots a slug so there is no spread on it and has massive recoil so it's not a gun you want to just hold the trigger down. It has more range then the Assault which makes it good for semi-close quarters battles with people that like to pop up from or the side of walls/hedges and behind cars.

Shotguns are so broken in 90% of shooters anyway.

 

First time I ever held a shotgun I pegged a wire target at 50 yards and flipped it up to head-height, two times in a row. Target was roughly the size of a human head. Spent the day firing a mix of buckshot and turkey loads. They're f*cking vicious bastards at "close-range". Armor or no, any one of em ought to be putting someone on their ass.

 

Best bet is to just aim for the head, in any case. Long or short range, you can generally oneshot someone if it's within the hit range, and, for me, bullpup seems to reach out the farthest most reliably.

Well a few days ago, when my warehouse was attacked I came across two npcs who both survived a full extended assault shotgun magazine. I dont know if it was because the shotgun was nerfed or if the npcs were buggy.

Maybe the individual was a CEO and used a Bull Shark Testosterone.

With the side effect that this only works in free roam.

Why spend hundred of thousands of dollars in a safe to store weapons you rarely/never use ? Just get rid of them...

The bullpup has always had disgustingly low damage, the AA-12 was nerfed but not by much.

Why are we discussing weapon meta in a game with infinite explosives?
