I feel the shotguns need more range and power. I was out with my shotgun earlier today and I was exploding watermelons at 300 yrds. The game should be like this to add realism. We should also be able to mount a 4x scope on them so we can use them as substitutes for a sniper rifle in a pinch. Thanks for your time!
I DON´T agree as the shotguns are the most powerfull weapons already.
One shot kills are granted and the 7 shot magazine is big enough to take out a squad of bots.
It even fires faster than the sniper bolt action rifles with greased bolt, that is the reason why many players prefer it over a sniper rifle.
I was being sarcastic. The shotguns in this game are the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen. How can you say you are going for realism and have shotguns that kill as far as you can see. Honestly, it's embarrassing.
Also, shotgun hits to a vest shouldn't be deadly.
I'm fairly certain we are using some type of buckshot in this game. I agree slugs are powerful but they still don't penetrate the vests.
Interesting Video !
Your right, standard slugs don´t penetrate through AR500 steel plate, but ..it´s only covering a very small area of the body.
So i am not sure if Sandstorm is using the AR500 steel armour plates or just using a weaker body armour in the loadout of the players and bots.
May be they use non standard slugs and flechettes
