PostSubject: Scopes Shotguns and you   Thu May 13, 2010 8:21 am

Do people care about scopes on their shotguns, im finding very similar shotguns, often with minor differences but 1 has a scope, for example:

SG1200 Hunters Striker
Damage: 201x7
Accuracy: 72.9
Fire Rate: 0.5
Clip size: 12
Zoom 3.6x


ZPR31 Hunters Striker
Damage: 212x7
Accuracy: 72.9
Fire rate: 0.7
Clip Size: 6
Zoom: N/A
+150% melee damage


As you can see, they are extremely similar and at the same time very very different, should i view this as 2 seperate shotguns or should i take 1 value over the other, IE Scope > Melee damage, Clip size > fire rate, etc etc.

How do you guys decide what is a keeper and what gets chucked?

People generally dislike scopes on their shotguns (I know I do). Soldiers however might like scopes because on high acc shotguns like the maliwan crux, scattershot can actually turn it into a long distance gun

the way i play, and you can ask others here on the forum-im in your fuckin face at all times, so i prefer no scopes-before i made my new character, i actually pulled all my shotguns that i used into willowtree and ripped the scopes off of them

thats just me though

and actually as far as iron sights go, the 1.5x iron sights are badass


i AM the shotgun king

yeah see scattershot definitely comes into play when you rock a soldier, and shottys with 70 acc and up would most likely turn into a skullmasher in shotgun form

like my scoped 72.2 acc 2 shot 350x7 hunters shotty

yeah thatd be disgusting

^ this. I use my 80 ACC/1.9 FR Crimson Death as a sniper and my 72 ACC/2.4 FR Crimson Brute is my version of a burst fire CR.

badass.

yeah i luckily picked up a non scoped version of that hunters found by cass and those guys, and even though its a 2 shot its got a 60% reload plus, so its definitely a very usable 2 shot-for me a definite in your damn face weapon

its funny-when you pick up a crimson lance power core, it one shots badass engineers

Nice. I found a 350ishx7 (at work can't check exact damage) 2 shot Hunter's Defender last week and it's now my favorite gun at short range...that and my 266x7 Painful Brute with the 2.7 FR.

Nice. Scoped or not that much damage is just money. I found my first Detonating Hammer on my last run last night, still haven't used it but it looks like a good time...damn I want to go shoot something.

i have a really good 266x7 blast hammer-everyone seems to be finding the exact one as of late

but yeah its beast, especially since mine was blessed with no scope---as was my fatal crux


zombie island is HILARIOUS with a blast hammer or a fatal crux

and at jess-i found that exact one, the only down side is the recoil is HORRIBLE-but you know how i place

in your face at all times

accuracy doesnt matter on a weapon that shoots a pattern-ive got a blast hammer that has 6 acc lol but no scope and its a near clone of the 266 one, but it shoots a pattern so acc is pointless

Same with the Angry/Fatal Crux, but rapid fire + explosive = awesome

I'd go with the Scoped, it's a Striker. The Strikers are made for ACC so a scope would be helpful. Most other shotguns, no scope kicks ass.

I'm not really an expert with shottys, but I do like my TV screen scope on my Butcher as it has high accuracy being a Hyperion, and I could see using a scope for a Striker, but no scope would be good for most of the time.

I still prefer shotties with scopes on my soldier, the only ones I use without scopes are bulldogs.

My allrounder, with maxxed scattershot this is as accurate as a good assault rifle, kills the Lance in no time:



This is my preferred bulldog with fast fire rate and the badass ironsights;:

I have a similar brute and Bulldog and use them pretty much the same way. One of my new favorites is my Hunters Defender 367x7 with 72 Acc, no scope. A two shot (3 with Overload) but a beast at medium to short range. I'm also enjoying my new Terrible Matador with 230x12, 30 Acc, 1.3 RoF and 13 round mag. Never a Matador fan before but this shotty is tits for Run n Gun action.

Edit: it's a Pearl Matador

A shotgun should never have a scope. I understand these high accuracy shotguns but a scope still looks retarded on them.
