On my NC LA I'm about to auraxium my current gun so I'm looking for a replacement. I've heard the Mauler shotgun is the best to use with slugs. Is this true? My current LA loadout is: max Jump Jets max Nanoweave armor max C4 frag grenade x1 My basic strategy is to flank the enemy, fly to a good high shooting position, and engage at medium range. Would the Mauler with slugs be useful for this? If so, what about attachments. With other shotguns it seems everyone goes with extended mags, but in this case the Mauler has a quick reload and due to the large pellet spread it seems like I can't afford to miss, which has me leaning toward the forward grip instead. Also, once again with other shotguns it seems everyone goes with the x1 sight, but since here I'd be engaging at medium range and need to be accurate a higher magnification might be called for... If not the Mauler, then what's a good alternative for medium range combat? I've already auraxiumed... AF 19 Mercenary GD 23 Razor MKV Suppressed ACX-11 I've reserved the AF 4 Bandit for my Engineer. So for medium range options that leaves... 1. Gauss Compact Burst (tried it in VR and it seems to have poor TTK) 2. Gauss Compact S (seems to be all about the grenade launcher, which does not fit my playstyle) 3. NS-11C (seems to have good TTK and accuracy, but I'd prefer an NC specific gun if possible) 4. GD 7 F (popular, but seems to be primarily a short range gun). Any advice would be appreciated!
