What is the best

Post by HalcyonDaze00 » Tue Oct 15, 2013 10:17 pm

shotgun in gaming?

Lots of great guns in lots of great games, but its probably fair to say that most gamers love the shotgun and the feeling of splitting something in half close in with a shotgun is quite brilliant.

so, what are your fave shotguns from gaming, modern or retro?

The two that jump out for me are the one from Doom and the Spas 12 from online MW2 (immortalised by the awesome Sandy Ravage vids).

Half Life 2 also had a great shotgun too!

Shotgun. Doom. End of. It's better than the super shotgun, it's just pure class.

I always found the shotty from Goldeneye 64 very satisfying. The "thwack" as you shot somebody with it, the blood stains that appeared on his body. God bless infinitely spawning enemies, I probably spent several hundred hours of my childhood running around headshotting enemies with infinite ammo turned on :lol:

Without a doubt the Shotgun in Soldier of Fortune - blowing people's limbs off really made my evening after a hard day at school.

870 MCS with slugs and extended tubes from Bad Company 2. That sucker could counter snipe half a mile across the map. Plus it was accessible to all classes and was in the Nam DLC.

So that's how I kept getting snipped by a shotgun.

The sawn off in GOW 3 is pretty nasty.

agreed except for the MW one,my personal favourite is the AA-12,a rapid fire room clearance weapon that got me out of many tight situations online.
