They're ticking me off. 2 hits ko plus they freeze you.

3 options:

1.) Reduce the number of bullets

2.) Drastically reduce damage

3.) Spread the bullets out and increase reload time (maybe reloading after every shot?).

I'm sure everyone would be thankfull if they're modified to be a normal gun and not a weapon of mass destruction.

Was this not discussed before?

The shotgun is fine. If you get really close to someone with a shotgun, well, thats not very bright of you. Keep your distance, and just keep firing at the person holding the shotgun. I rarely die because of shotguns, most of the times when they kill me, its when im getting teamed by like 5 others and I have no space to dodge the bullets.

It's a fricken WMD. I'm sorry we're not all "perfect" like you. Ask anyone but someone who uses a shotgun. They'll all tell you that they're overpowered. It is possible to beat someone with a shotgun, but that's because the only people using shotguns are new recruits. If Siwin, you, or myself were to use them there would be no stopping us.

Only classes I use/can use are:

Commando
Commander

I cant play with the speed(s) of the other classes, so if I chose a class with a shotgun, well, I wouldnt be as good.

a weapon in the right hands can always be unstoppable.

What if your opponent also has "the right hands"?

New Recruits generically aren't "the right hands". Usually they're only playing so their team to win... and they'll do anything (lameing) to win.

Your sudgestion pretty much turns the heavy infantry class into the sitting duck class.

Chaingun (extremely fast and deadly), KR 90 (bullets do alot of damage), and Enhanced Pulsar (too fast x.x) are all great weapons. I never use rocketlaunchers or mortars though. Mortars are for invading bases that are swarming with people.

We're talking about Zone here... a game where all the other players just rush in and kill as many people as they can. I usually have to lure the enemies on to other players in order to get a chance to use heavy weapons, which doesn't always work. So most of the time, I'm using a shotgun for support fire.

Chaingun (extremely fast and deadly)

Shoot it once and you have to re-do the startup thingy

KR 90 (bullets do alot of damage)

Isnt this the one that only fires like 3 bullets at a time?

and Enhanced Pulsar (too fast x.x)

Meh, it's decent.

Mortars are for invading bases that are swarming with people.

Stefan's guide says it only does 20 damage so meh...

That's why you start firing as soon as someone is in range.

2 bursts kill most.

Meh, it's decent.

It's one of the best weapons. you can just keep firing at someone and they won't be able to move. Plus it shoots 4 bullets (pulses) at once.

Stefan's guide says it only does 20 damage so meh...

That's why you fire about 6 at one base.

its quiet easy to hit someone once you know.

rofl if you get hit by them XD

Ok so one good weapon...-_-

It's not that hard to get the hell out of the way. Plus it only shoots left and right, not up and down.

the only good thing about the mortar is it's splash attack, rocket launcher sucks, people move to fast for it, chaingun is only good at a distance.

Wrong, I'm soldier rank but almost always use shotgun. The fact is that it sucks ass if the enemy isnt stupid enough to let you get close to them. However, I use it because most people (probably you) are stupid enough to be killed by one.
