Shotguns

IB is planet of the apes now. Intolerable :/ It's great to encourage gunplay but fix the shotgun meta. It's garbage Edit: it's more of a me thing I guess as I went .44 in this latest match. I was doing better when I was using a shotgun but it's so boring and what can you do against those that do? Sidearms are supposed to be a good countermeasure but that only works when you see the opponent. Players move around so fast I cant tell if they're cheating or if it's 'working fine'. What I do know is that I can't keep up with it. Please implement SBMM in IB. And crucible in general. It's just not that fun not having a chance.

    Shotguns are going to be abhorrent to fight against in nearly every medium of Crucible until one of the following criteria are met: [spoiler]>Primaries are buffed to have a shorter TTK to better stunt brainless rushes (whatever the current TTK is, it's not sufficient).[/spoiler] >Maps are made to accommodate 12 players on the field (obviously this isn't a problem for smaller lobby sizes). Even a better matchmaker won't fix this since shotguns are ultimately a symptom of larger problems. Edit: Retracting my first statement due to misinformation on my end; my apologies. Will leave it in spoilers to keep context of follow-up posts.

    • Are shotguns the reason you're on the bottom of the scoreboard every match even when you win ?

    • Normal shotguns are fine, slugs need a nerf. Both take more skill than fusions.

      • Bungie won't nerf them because they give bad players free kills. I played a 0.8kd who went 10 and 23 with 6 shotgun kills and 4 melee kills. They were also streaming, so I watched their pov. They couldn't use a primary for their life. If Bungie nerfs shotguns, people would legit go 1 and 30+. I mean, they already took her 2 free supers a game taking away people special crutch would legit make them not get any kills.

      • Have you tried opening your eyes and using your game sense to kill people?

        • Yeah they only touched a part of what is wrong with the mode. All I see are players running around with shotguns. It is the same boring meta we have been in for years now.
