i would like to think that a point blank blast from a shotty to you head would kill you but not for me lately. but what is your fave shotgun?

Saiga, followed Closely By USAS, the pump action ones make you feel like a badass, but are terrible at actually killing fools.

Hate using Shotties in general so don't have a favorite. but I guess USAS is a good one. Used it to protect an MCOM and it helped alot!

Saiga with slugs. It's like a sniper rifle without any bullet drop. Outstanding.

Neostad is my favorite. Sure sucks if you miss, but if you hit at close range, you feel like a badass.

I love the SPAS-12, just because it is the most badass shotgun in the game :P.

SAIGA and NS 2000 are the only choices.

SAIGA and Remington 870.

870 with or w/o slugs, starting to use w/o recently it's still a beast on hardcore. 
Also because of using it without I got my gold star with my M9 :P

Pump action ones are a bit unreliable since if you accidentally miss or are not close enough you are usually screwed  as the other guy will off you before the next round is pumped into the chamber. I usually only use shottys to assault Mcoms as Recon since after arming and placing the C$ you can throw down a motion mine to watch for dudes coming to disarm. when they come close use the C4, then if more come use shotty to clean up.

I find that all the shotguns work for me, but after taking out one guy it's hard to get his buddies. I prefer the 870 for close up and saiga 20 for a bit farther. Once I get slugs I plan on sticking with the 870.

40mm shotgun under my rifle or one of the pump action ones with slugs.

I'm a big fan of the 870 I just love using it with Slugs and Magnum ammo.

Neostead with slugs and Magnum ammo. 
Now that's skill.

Neostead = best stats, worst looks.  
And BFBC2 is screwy like that; a single bullet to the head should incapacitate someone even if they're wearing armor, in BFBC2 it's like 3-4 :/. Even a shotty takes more than one headshot sometimes.

Seriously?  I spent hundreds of hours in BFBC2 and never tried softcore mode more than a few was too much like BFBC1 but worse (with inferior maps and stupid killcam).

870 combat. I feel so bad ass when I get a kill with it.

#21 Posted by Geno (6768 posts) -
@teh_pwnzorer: Yup. An average medium-long range bullet will do 16dmg; so even with headshots (x2.1) each time you will still need to do about 3-4 of them. Pretty frustrating and a stark contrast to most FPSs that are 1 hit kill for headshots. That's why a lot of people like the AN94, because it shoots 2 bullets at once, if your target is still you can get those 3-4 in a bit quicker.

I likes the SPAS with slugs. Headshots abound.
