As the title says, which shotgun should I choose? Input such as pros, cons, and advantages over its "competition" would be very helpful. The versatility slugs offer at range and how beneficial they are to each gun would also be great information. I was quite close to purchasing the mauler, since its reload speed was very tempting. However, I can't help but think what would the other two shotguns have over this. I would've insta bought the piston if it had a decent reload time. I play as the NC but other factions could easily express their opinions here on their shotguns as all three factions' three shotguns are similar anyway. An automatic vs fast reload vs high ammo. I know there are several shotgun threads out there but it's becoming even harder for me to decide. Nonetheless, thank you for you time.
