View Full Version : Shotgun shoots slow??
01-26-2009, 02:11 PM
Why didnt you guys fix the speed of the shotgun???? It shoots slower than the boltok pistol that is dumb.What was wrong with the speed of the shotguin in gears 1?? It was perfect, You did make the shotgun better in gears 2 with the TU2 but sometimes when you want to pull the trigger it doesnt shoot and when it does shoot its like 2-3 seconds until you can get another shot off because of how slow it shoots. Epic if you fix this problem it would quiet down alot of people complaining about the shotgun.I Have never writing on any forums before its just that i know you can make this a better experience for all your hardcore fans im sure alot people agree with me Thank you!
PLEASE REPLY GIVE ME YOUR THOUGHTS!!!

The shotgun being gimped is my biggest problem with Gears 2 by far. I could deal with cheap smoke-grenade kills but the shotgun not being up to par with the rest of the weapons kills the experience for me. I'm furious about it. I purchased Collector's Edition of Gears 2 and yet I'm only playing Gears PC right now because it plays like it supposed to. So many Gears 1 memories...

I agree that it shoots slow and they should def. work on it. But in a since it kinda became more of a longer range in Gears 2. That would be lovely if it worked very well from long distance but it doesn't. So they should def. fix that problem.

Leave it slow, the damn game starts turning into shotgun fights. Might as well call it Gears of Shotguns. This is a good way to encourage variety.

The point of the shotgun is for close quarters. And that is it. Why would you make it so difficult to use a weapon to the point where people dont even want to use it for what its for? If you get into a close quarters fight whats wrong with using the shotgun the way it was? In Gears 1 alot of the maps turned into close quarter combat. Thats just how it was.
Tweaking a gun to shoot just how "they" want it to, isnt a good idea. Especially adding a artificial delay and slowing down how it fires. These things have got me two peiced more times than not. I would rather get shot with the shotgun in a fair firefight than get two peiced and not even get a shot off. The amount of times I'm pulling the trigger and nothing happens is probably in the triple digits.

How about active reload? like the boltok when it gets active, it shoots faster.
the only problem with that is that people with be unloading there shottys to get a da** bonus.
The amount of times I'm pulling the trigger and nothing happens is probably in the triple digits.
Needs to be fixed!
Sometimes ill be on a wall and ill be tappin that shoot button and guess what happens?
Might as well peek in the barrel and check for bullets.
