As someone who had almost never played with Shotguns as Assault (mostly play with assault rifles), I tried shotguns couple of days ago and more specifically - the 10-A Hunter.

This shotgun is simply amazing. One-shot kills on close ranges and even 2-3 shots on medium ones. It is amazing how much wonders it does and how overpowered it is, especially when backed by aim assist.

What do you think?

    It's not overpowered in my opinion. You take a lot of risks by using a shot-gun.. and you lose a lot of range and therefore you die a lot from people far away.
    The OHK is nice up close, but this is balanced by having to re-load often.

    Its not OP, compared to previous bf titles, the 10a would be considered garbage tier, which 17m isn't very far in practice.

    there is a reason it accounts for approx. 75% of all shotgun kills.

    Same goes for the bolt-action rifles .. one might become diabetic reading all these salty comments.

    Agree. you have to learn to play extreme close quarters when you wanna be a shotgunner. Resist attempting kills you could have got easily with any other guns and make sure you've always got decent cover.

    It's still my top gun even though I don't use it much anymore. It was great before the range nerf now it's a handicap against most players with decent aim. The slow pump action motion coupled with wonky hit detection and you will be pulling your hair out. You are better off using any other shotgun as they do what the 10-A hunter does better.

    Shotguns are for unskilled cannon fodder and trolls. This is how it had always been in the BF series.

    Guess im the odd one here, But i feel that 1900 is better than 10A.

    It removes RNG for the most part.

    Yeah I like the 1900 for that. When you get a weird damage roll you usually can fire again for the kill quickly.

    Broad sweeping generalizations? Shame on you...I guess it takes a lot of skill to use fully automatic weapons huh?

    Can the truth be generalized?

    It namely depends on the weapons function. The shotguns are all the simplest guns to use because they are point blank range weapons: you don't have to worry about recoil, leading targets, spread, weapon accuracy, distance, bullet drop, etc. You just get close, put your crosshair or sight and them, and pull the trigger. The Automatico is a full auto weapon that functions nearly identical to shotguns in that it is also a point blank range weapon so you don't have to worry about recoil, leading targets, spread, weapon accuracy, bullet drop, or distance.

    You clearly never used a shotgun in a video game let alone real life

    ~

    When the game launched I used it for ranking up assault as it was a good pump action and at the time was sorta consistent. Now; meh. I'd rather take slugs over it. After using the other shotguns the pump is so slow and the damage so inconsistent.

    Don't get me wrong I like my model 10-a hunter but doing 18 damage for two buck shots point blank start to get on your nerves. If I'm gonna use a shotgun now I'll be the m97 Backbored or Sjorgen; I'll take consistenty thanks

    Because the others are either junk or dlc.

    I decided to use the hunter yesterday and my god it's like they buffed it, I killed a guy that was 100m away although it was only 12 damage that's still amazing for a shottie, the rest of the time I was one shoting people at medium ranges close range well it's a shotgun so no explanation needed, maybe they buffed it or my gameplay has significantly improved

    ^^^could've started a new thread related to the 10-A instead of reviving a dead thread.

    Also, OHK people at medium range with a shotgun? What's your definition of medium range?

    It needs more consistency. At it is now it feels like while the pellets are tighter these pellets still cluster together at places that are off the center of the reticule.
    Sadly Dice values their so called "authenticity" more than gameplay quality. 12 may pellets work irl cause we get dropped dead by a lot less than ingame.
    Imho for gameplay reasons, the shotguns should be shooting either many more dozens of pellets that do a lot less damage each in order to do uniform damage throughout the shotgun cone (the closer the target is to the middle of the cone the more damage instead of how now all most of the 12 pellets might accumulate on the one side of the cone).
    This way it will also be easier to balance their effective range.
