    The shotgun is currently the most powerful weapon by a significant amount, especially compared to the locomotive and m3, which it destroys in virtually every metric. Please lower the damage and increase the spread so that the loco/m3 have a reason to exist, and so that guns other than the mac10 can actually fight against it (mac10 is balanced by its ammunition, something the shotgun has no lack of).

    The m3 might also need a bit of a change, as it is infamous for doing 7-20 damage with a point blank chestshot.

    Apologies if this has been posted before, but the gun is bloody busted and seriously needs some work.

    +1 for shotgun reform, too busted at the moment and is vastly superior to the other shotguns

    -1 I personally find the Loco and M3 just as good as the shotty. While the shotty may be easier to use, Loco is known for its incredible close range/point blank abilities - in my opinion surpassing the normal shotgun. M3 has very good damage as well, with a slightly slower rate of fire, but I think is still not an underperformer against the shotty.

    The issue with the shotgun is the lack of bullet spread though. The M3 and Loco both have a good amount of spread, while the shotgun has virtually none.


    So +1 on increasing the spread, -1 on decreasing damage.

    My solution:

    Semi auto shotgun as T only weapon. Much higher damage, but higher spread and a smaller magazine than currently. There's no reason for T's to say for example get out an AK when they can just pick up the semi auto shotgun and destroy people WITHOUT arousing suspicion of their intention immediately. Makes a nice counterpart to the Detective Striker too. This should leave the Shotgun as the ultimate close range play destructive weapon for T's, the AK for medium range play, and the AWP for long range play.

    I think the Locomotive is just fine as it is, but the M3 Super should get a much tighter spread with a smaller magazine.

    Bump, still leagues stronger than every other gun in almost every situation outside of sniper range.

    I mean you can literally use the shotgun as a low level sniper, so yeah increasing the spread would be a good idea. But i feel like by increasing the spread it'll lower the damage so i don't think you need to lower the damage that much. +1
