Ode to the Shotgun

Posted by c0l0nelp0c0rn1 (1811 posts) -

 A man with a face is knocking at my door,
I turn around quickly,
He doesn't have a face anymore.

The crazy Voorhees knockoff with his machete runs
right directly at me,
good thing I've got bazillions of guns.

Most of them are shotguns,
but I've found the one that's best,
Its the one fires quickliest at other people's heads

Tediore, Maliwan, it doesn't matter much
as long as its got a magazine,
its so handy in the clutch.

You might be wondering now just what the heck is up
its about time for me to tell you all
my sick and twisted pups.

Auto-shotguns are the best,
whether semi or full auto,
yes nothing can compare to them
not even a cyan malo

Yeah, I'm done with these stupid rhymes. Automatic shotguns are the best guns in first-person shooters ever. MW2? AA-12 is the only secondary I need. Borderlands? Sweepers are so much better than any matador or shredder. L4D? Auto-SHOTTY!!! BF: BC? I haven't played the first one yet, does it have a good auto-shotgun?

Say, what shotguns stand out to you guys? Tell me in the comments below.

P.s. Also, tell me if Bad Company (1) is any good.

My brother used to always say shotguns were one of the best weapons in all games.
 
I never quite got what he meant till I started playing Gears of War, from that game and games beyond it all made sense.

Oh I do now, believe me, hence why I said Gears and beyond, since then the shotgun has become a regular feature within my arsenal, especially on L4D1 and 2.
It also has a satisfying sound, along with the satisfying feeling of owning a knife runner on MW2.

There's only one auto shotgun in either Bad Company, and it's the same gun. It's the USAS-12. But according to the stats for Bad Company 2, you're better off throwing something at the problem. There is the Saiga 20K. It's semi-automatic, but it works well and can be fired fairly quickly. Bad Company 1 is a very good game, but you'd be better off getting Bad Company 2. Though BC1 is still a good game in its own right, the online in BC2 will last a lot longer.
