1. You can infer a lot about the quality of an FPS by the quality of its Shotgun.

    1. @ceruleanspark This is true.

    2. @rotation A good FPS will always have a decent shotgun. Developers who include shotguns and make them more or less worthless (Saddle them with huge reload times and unrealistically short effective ranges or unfeasably wide scatter patterns) tend to have been lazy/inattentive in other regards too.

      1. @ceruleanspark I hope you realize that shotguns in the real world have unrealistically short effective ranges.

        1. @colfax Sort of. BFBC2 gave you the option of massive stopping power with buckshot, or range with slugs. Games that give you multiple shell types are good in my book.

          1. @eaglehooves BFBC2's shotguns are good in my book anyway. They're my primary weapon, as it happens.

        2. @colfax It's still longer than the 10 feet some videogames give them.

        3. @colfax that wasn't what it seemed like the last time I shot trap... 8|

          1. @hoofandsnort True, but most folks don't go into a firefight with a long-barreled shotgun either.

    3. @greydragon412 I love Halo's shotgun.

      1. @ceruleanspark That thing is sweet.

    4. @rotation I let my XBL expire, so I haven't been in matchmaking, but in firefight they always seem to buck through anything that gets near you.

      1. I think I replied to somepony's unrelated rant with Halo. Guess I looked at the reply column wrong.

    5. @rotation It's been a while since I played, but I used use the Saiga20K/USAS12 basically all the time and had no issue with its effectiveness.
