Now it depends on what site are you on, what map, and most importantly what shotgun are you using, if you want a good pump action shotgun i recommend the french shotty or the brit one, if you want to spam use the fbi shotty but beware of the recoil, and thats all i gotta tell you

Have I been living under a rock? Last time I played I didn't see anyone using a shotgun except of course to help setup the site.

Generally speaking, shotguns are good, especially defense. Attack on the other hand is pretty situational. Some ops should use shotguns because they have a good secondary (typically an smg). Personally, I don’t rely on shotguns because I suck with shotguns ;-;

If you mean picking up operators that has good gun and playing them with the shotgun, no. I mean, if you want to play maestro you must grab the Alda. On mute and smoke the shotgun is the right pick and maybe in specific site also on pulse if you are playing below. Playing with the shotgun on the att. Side i kinda stupid and uselles for your team. As an attacher you won't have so many occasion for a really close fight as you have as a defender. You can play shotguns in casual maybe Not in ranked. I've seen doc players using shotgun in ranked and I really couldn't understand why.

Shotgun meta only really exists on PC, but from what I've seen it seems a little OP sometimes.

Personally I think it isn’t great because if the enemy has brain cells they should be able to counter especially since you won’t be able to do much ranged dmg unless you’re skilled with pistols or smgs
