PostSubject: Sawed off Shottgun   Sat Nov 12, 2011 4:24 pm

why did Epic decide to makethis weapon, i hate it so much. it is possible that it is the most terrible weapon in the game (other than the Mortar). i despise it so much.
all people have to do with it is wait for me and my Gnasher to compromise their cover and splat, im chunks.

It was made for the newer players.. If newer players would be the ones to actually use it, it wouldn't be a problem. It's when the vets use it, it gets annoying.

Lol, one time I did it it was on Rustlung *Modded private match weapons nothing but mortars and longshots lol* when I shot it, I forgot there was a roof so it kinda just bounced off and I took out both teams, because we were waiting for the silverback, lol I love friendly fire. Plus one of their legs got stuck in a wall...

I really hate people who just have no skill using it to t-bone me instead of having the skill to win an actual shotgun fight.

I hate it when people say others don't have skill because they use it. If you had skill you'd counter it, after all it only has a range of about a foot & takes 20 seconds to reload. Wink

I totally agree and tbh, most people are trolls who moan about SOS......not everyone! Just the trolls!

Everytime I die by SOS I think to myself 'why and how the f**k did I let that idiot get so close to me?!?!?!?!?!?' with many more expletives!

Whilst trying not to be opinionated I will say... This gun should have been buried with the Beta.

Agreed, even though it is fairly fun to camp with it when someone pisses you off lolol.

Sawedoff = AWESOME just my opinion, though they did make it useless through even mid range the gnasher does slightly do damage in mid range.

Sawed off shotgun is one of my favorite guns just because you can kill multiple people with it. The downside is it takes too long to reload!

I don't like when there are people over level 40 that use the sawed-off. I can't stand 80's and 90's using it. I've always used the gnasher. I'm a 96 and I only have like 56 kills with the sawed-off.

I like the addition of the SOS or DBS whatever you call it. I for one do not like it when people say it is for noobs. If you dislike it when they camp the corners, take the corners wide and don't just mindlessly run in there like a hooligan.

Those noobs will still hit you somehow with how wide the range is on that garbage

i still love how after 9 months of game release people are still having the gnasher vs sawn off debate.

im not a huge fan of using it, i did for a while when i first got gears 3, got alot of hate mail in that week. :p

then i switched to my default loadout and just boosted the sawn off.

to be honest both guns take some degree of skill, yes people hide around corners with the sawn off, but they also do it with the gnasher. at least with the sos if you wanna get a decent kill you have to get right ujp in their face

Sawed off is trash. The only "skill" with it is in closing the distance before firing it. I don't have a problem with people using it, but they're using an objectively inferior weapon. Some stats:

- Less one-hit kill range than gnasher
- Can't use actives effectively
- Can't fire more than 1 shot before a looooooong reload
- Can't support teammates in a gun fight unless you're on top of them

At least with the gnasher, you can 2 or 3 shot down people who are pretty far away with actives while retaining the ability to easily hip-spray gib people up close as long as you have said actives. You give up basically EVERYTHING just to get a wider spread...no thanks.

Hiding in this game is the mark of weak players USUALLY, and that's true for either shotgun. You don't get kills at a decent rate and are not shooting people while hiding. If someone is pulling out a shotgun, one of only a few things need to be true:

1. Contesting an area with tight corners
2. Flanking and reasonably close to the opponents
3. Getting the jump on someone who obviously doesn't know you're there and is running for a power area (basically, picking on a weak player charging you, but there's no reason not to kill them).

In most other situations, having AR range is a superior choice.
