Shortstop or Scattergun?
Which is the better choice?
I know that most people here will just shout out "Scattergun" with no reasoning behind it, so please explain why Shortstop/Scatter is better.

The Shortstop's advantages is that it makes Mad Milk heal more and it has a longer effective range. And a better firing rate .
Aaaaand....that's it.
I still like Shortstop better.

I like both equally as shortstop is great up to mid range a and good when there arre few to no decent health kits on the map and scattergun has the better damage over time and servs more reliability.

It is not a better choice, it is a matter of opinion.
Scattergun has a good 6 bullets and most classes die from 2 point blank hits.
Shortstop is good if you have the set. But do NOT and I repeat DO NOT! Use the pistol with it, shortstop takes pistol bullets away so be cautious with it.
Scattergun is my choice, but I don't tell you what to use, you tell yourself what to use.
Good day.
The shortstop seems to do less damage in general compared to the scattergun. At medium range the shortstop is more useful however the scouts playstyle makes the scattergun a better choice. Much more powerful for hit and run tactics.

Shotstop is pretty good mid-close range. Its fully auto and can kill a pyro in like, 4-6 shots (It gets 4 shots then you reload)if you use it right. I have it equipped on my Scout.

Scrubstop if you're a scrub who wants your team to hate you.
Scattergun if you're a not awful player who wants to be of actual credit to your team.

I go with scattergun 100% time now, just because I feel that I never hit shots with shortstop against scouts in 1v1 and generally, I just miss a lot with shortstop compared to my aim with scattergun. Also, just because I played comp tf2 and shortstop is banned there, I just run stock as it feels to me more natural.

Maybe you dont enjoy bfb; but me and many others love moveing at speed of light as scout. My only issue with shortstop is it's knockback effect.
