    ... I use every single weapon and continue to do well. If anything, the skills that SOS and Retro users have are different from yours, but skills nonetheless. How much skill does it take to shoot the gnasher at a charging enemy? Not much. But the wallbouncing aspect of Gnasher battles does take skill. SOS users have to know the right time to flank or come rushing in, which is just as much a skill as anything else in the game. It's all about style of play, and the addition of the Retro and SOS adds to the spectrum of players. And if they didn't need skill, they wouldn't kill you, and you wouldn't be complaining. If they are so much worse than you, you should easily be able to counter their attacks and kill them.

    the Retro and SOS have ruined Gears. the Retro is probably the biggest offender as three quick RT taps and your opponent is dead.

    the people that use both weapons are the ultimates in skilless killers.
    Retro and Sawed-off have not ruined gears, they never did, the people who believe this are the ones that didn't want change because they were too comfortable with the way things were. I don't see the Retro or Sawed-off as noob weapons like most people do, I think of them more as the weapons that get the job done effectively and efficiently, why else would I use them?

    Argue what you like, my opinion on the subject won't change, call it noob, call it garbage, I don't care, I'll just call it what it is to me, fun and enjoyable, as it was mean't to be
    There's less to talk about these days

    Not necessarily. I use both the Gnasher and SOS and can do just fine with both of them, but I prefer the Gnasher like you or many others prefer the SOS. There are a lot of people who can't or won't adapt but that doesn't mean every Gnasher user is one of them.

    This is true, however its the vocal minority that spoil it for everyone else. I'm quite handy with both guns, and interchange regularly depending on playlist.

    True fact. I just don't think it's fair to group people together due to a few people who are over-the-top about it. (see Al Quieda [sp?] and the Westboro Baptist Church)

    Haha yeah, and then serious trouble happens! oh wait...

    I'd just like some people to realise that this is not Gears 2, or even Gears 2.5, this is Gears 3 and vastly different in a lot of ways to the previous titles. I don't want to see the franchise go backwards and end up being a 'prettier' version of a previous title.

    exactly, they get the job done far too effectively and efficiently! hence the reason many people are annoyed by them.

    it's not about what is comfortable. trust me, i do great with the Retro and SOS as it's hard not to do great if you've played the past Gears and then get given nuclear weapons as loadout options in Gears 3. it's about what is challenging and fun. it is no challenge to use the Retro and/or SOS.

    i played Gears 1 and 2 cos they were a challenge for everyone as the loadout options were limited, therefore the game was more balanced. fast forward to Gears 3 and you can now pick a loadout that gets you easy kills.

    it has killed the essence of Gears. Gears is different now, and worse for it imo.

    I actually feel like the gnasher is an easier weapon to get kills with and I don't consider myself that good. I have 3 times as many kills with the gnasher than any other single weapon. (and more kills with the gnasher than all 3 rifles combined).

    I hate the SoS, but only cause it's limited range and one shot, slow reload.

    You are absolutely correct.

    I'm a Gnasher user and I agree.
    if i wanted to kill myself, i'd f*cking kill myself. shotgun to the dick.

    The only thing the sawed-off has that is superior to the gnasher is a farther spread.

    And the same is true for the gnasher. I'm in the middle of trying to get my SoS medal and it's a pain in the ass because the gun sucks. So sometimes I get frustrated and switch to my gnasher and, whoop-dee-da, my K/D suddenly doubles.

    The SOS has longer gib range...
    No it doesn't, not after the nerf. The gib range is far, far shorter than the gnashers.

    And so what if I do? How does that make my argument any weaker? If anything it makes it stronger, as I at the least know its limitations and strengths. Why should anyone take anything you have to say about the gun seriously, considering you don't ever use it?

    My wife finally switched from the SOS to the gnasher. She is amazed at how easy it is too use.

    She earned her wings in gears2 so she has been playing for awhile

    The Gnasher can get more kills in a quick amount of time but it is HARD.
    The Sawed-off can get a kill easily but only ONE.

    If that's his point then he sucks at reading comprehension because I've never said a single thing that even hints at that being my point.

    S/O's don't even get better if you active it. D:
    I honestly preferred Gears 3 before all of the silly updates. Everything was just better for players who didn't whore Multiplayer, and liked that every weapon had it's place. At least in my opinion.

    Idk what the point of these threads are do you like seeing people argue. Everybody has their own opinions who cares if one person likes the gun more then the other, all I've been reading on this thread is arguments and every single person is saying the samethings. No wonder everybody is complain about teabaggers in the game it seems like everyone just hates each other without even getting to know one and other, how can you just argue with someone you don't know do you walk into someones house and te them their furniture sucks no that's disrespectful just like most of the stuff that is posted not just limited to this thread but others on the forums.

    They both have their uses.

    I prefer the Gnasher, but to say one is more skilled is redundant. The Gnasher has more shots, so more chances of killing a player / lots of players...

    ...whereas the Sawn Off has 1 chance, with less range.

    How is the Gnasher therefore more skilled to use?

    i'd probably get on with most of these people in real life, but this is a forum to talk about the game. positives AND negatives.

    i can't remember the last time i argued with anyone in real life. but in this forum i view Retro/SOS users as the enemy

    i'm sure everybody is lovely really. don't mix up how people are on this forum with real life. i can be a right **** on here but i'm quite the gent in real life

    i honestly couldn't disagree more, that fact that the gnasher has the ammo capacity and reloading ability that it does makes it much more versatile than the sawed-off. when using the sawed-off you really need to capitalize on that one shot, and be ready to take some damage to get the kill. i believe that makes the sawed-off a weapon that takes more skill, practice, and attention.

    I think the effectiveness of the sos depends on the map. Smaller maps the sos can be a beast when there is not a lot of open space and lots of cover. Bigger maps its useless. As for skill I think you all have it covered.

    I didn't say I agreed with what I said...but someone will.

    Both have their uses. The sawn-off is definitely a niche weapon. Some will see this as being a harder weapon to use, as you have to get close to the enemy to use it.

    Like I said, I was playing devils advocate. But there will always be people who argue both sides of the coin.

    Neither is right, no matter what anyone on these forums says/thinks.

    That is the very definition of an opinion.
