Are you happy, shotgun whiners? All of your cryings about how OP shotguns are (they aren't) finally worked out. But they weren't OP in the slightest. If they were, first of all, more people would play them. "BUT EVERYONE PLAYS WITH A SHOTGUN DON'T YOU SEE I ALWAYS DIE TO SHOTGUNS NOTHING ELSE" is the usual response of a guy who can't handle a weapon whose effective range is 8 meters. Here is how often shotguns are used: http://ps2oraclestats.com/?stat=kills&weapon1=7441&weapon2=7423&weapon3=7432 http://ps2oraclestats.com/?stat=kills&weapon1=41002&weapon2=39002&weapon3=40002 Starter LMGs, daily kills = ~35.000 for both 3 factions. Quick reload shotguns, daily kills = 8000 with Thanatos, ~1000 with the other two. Pump action shotguns, daily kills = ~1800 with Deimos, ~2000 with Blackjack, ~2150 with Bruiser Daily knife kills = 2700, 2770, 2600 (VS, TR, NC) I rest my case. Edit: Forgot something. "We inreased the min damage range of shotguns!! Because a shotgun should be used to fight an LMG! Next time, we're thinking about lowering the range of all snipers and increasing the knifing range to 20 meters! Because f-ck logic!"
