  • Until Bungie buffs primaries—or breaks shotguns completely—this problem isn’t going anywhere.

      Shotties expect chaperone are trash compared to fusions rn. Shotguns are doing what they are supposed to do, that is kill you at close range when u are in their face. If you don’t like that then stop running up to them like a dumb -blam!- Easy fix

    • Making them less accurate while moving is the best fix imo.

    • We had the primary/smg meta in year one and everyone complained lol the real problem was 4v4 and slow ability regen/slow movement and once all that was fixed the summer of 2018 PvP meta was damn near perfect. Too bad it wasn’t given a real chance.

      • So I guess its Chappy in the primary slot, Main Ingredient in the special, and maybe a sword for heavy? Saves me working on a loadout for the weekend 👍🏻 Maybe Hunter invis too for those crouching round corner moments 😵😩😩😩

        • Seems like they nerfed fusion rifles and buffed range to shotguns. I played an entire IB match I couldn’t get a single kill with my main ingredient. All it did was take the shields down zero kills. Shotguns on the other hand I was getting ohk way outside of the usual range. So sick of this, I cannot find a good counter for shotguns. They are way too easy to use.

          • Shotguns give bad players free kills. Bungie won't nerf them. Just like controllers high aa or other special ammo. I'm shocked they nerfed abilities.

            • [quote]I want something new them fighting the same sweating sliding shotgun crutches[/quote] I hate getting shotgunned as much as the next person, but I’d rather deal with that than everyone running fusions. A lot easier to use your primary against a shotgun ape than a vooper. I’ve made some silly plays with Zealot’s reward this season that wouldn’t be possible with a shotgun. Main ingredient makes just about every primary redundant inside of 20m. I thank sweet baby RNGesus they aren’t being used more. Chaperone needs to be toned the F down though.

            • People think shotguns are bad, but have you played against kids who only spam a fusion rifle that never misses, kills you through walls, and has the range of a sniper, all game? Want a primary gunfight? Nah, I’ll just spam my fusion rifle the whole time.

            • Bungie struggles with PvP and they seem to want us all to use shotguns and hand cannons.
