I have a shotgun and I like to use it. It's a Sweeper with an extended clip and optics vary. Sometimes I use buckshot and other times I'll use slugs but I know each has its place. However, I feel like some days neither one is working well at all. Today I was using buckshot indoors at ~5m ranges and getting one or two hit markers and dying constantly. Afterwards I checked where I died and where the enemy was and figured that I should have done more damage than a few bars of shield, and I checked my pellet spread too and it seemed about normal. But what's odd is that the other day I was engaging at similar ranges with the same setup and actually killing people. 5 meters, buckshot, one or two shots to take someone down. Am I just getting kills through luck? It seems like my performance varies so much from day to day. Later today in the same play session I was dying every time a Terran looked at me (no really, they were turning around and I died as they looked at me), and I can't hipfire my Gauss Compact at the ranges I was engaging at there. By the time I bring up the sights I'm dead. But that's a slightly different problem that could be solved with better positioning. So is there something I can do to get more consistent performance? I don't like bringing one loadout for a specific situation and have it completely fail when I used it the day before and it worked just fine.
