What is your opinion on shotguns?
I hear things like "auto♥♥♥♥♥ies" and "calm down kid, you have a shotgun"
I guess this is something people say because shotguns are looked at as an easy wep?
Maybe even newbie.

A lot of people use magnums with shotguns and that is kind of the easy way out; not that it isn't effective, but just since shotguns are so overpowered. For example, you can kill a smoker from a distance with a shotgun, which is ridiculous, and shotguns can kill all SI almost instantly.

That being said, it is useful because its abilities are so excessive. If you're looking for a challenge that are other weapon combinations, but shotguns are an easy way to finish a game.

I'm more or less indifferent to shotguns. Like every other weapon, they have their pros and cons as well as their uses. I'll use a shotgun when I want to, end of story.

The T2 shotties bother me to no end in Vs, but the T1 are perfect.

I am a shotgun user. Semi - auto shotguns are pretty easy to use. Compared to Counter - Strike. If you are close enough to ANY special infected, you will most likely get the kill if you are using the tier 2 shotguns. You also need some trigger discipline with them. They have a spread that is larger than the SMG's & rifles. And the damage the do up close hurts when it comes to friendly fire.

And the same thing is said about the auto sniper in csgo. Its just a circle of whining. They run out of ammo real fast, a smoker can be far enough away to avoid death, and they only have 10 shots which is sometimes now enough to fight a horde in an open area since it takes so long to reload. The only reason it bothers people who think they're "pro" is because they are ddetermined to make the game harder for themselves to convince them they're better than others. It's in the game, its not going anywhere, so people just need to get over it.

I just dont give a ♥♥♥♥ what other people say. That's my opinion.

Oh look, it's a cleverly disguised "cutegirl".
Trolls aside, shotguns are fun. Perhaps arguebly not the best for every game mode or difficulty, but fun. Very satisfying to kill infected with.

Sniper rifles can kill (almost) instantly too. It just depends on if the player is good enough to do it.

Sometimes! The hunting rifle is better against SI than the military sniper. They both *can* instantly kill with headshots, which is questionable with most SI and near impossible with chargers, even for the best head hunters. You won't find a better tank fighter than the military sniper, though, that's for sure.

Shotguns are just my favourite weapon in any game. Get up close up to the enemies and *BAM*! L4D's shotties are awesome, great sound and feeling when you pull the trigger. Great for both crowd control and taking out specials.

just what does it feel like when you pull the trigger?

Like a God getting a sloppy BJ from his most beautiful angels.
