  • shotgun whorination

    First half of my BC2 playing days, I was all medic/M60+red-dot+magnum-ammo... which is a super fast way to level-up.

    For the last month though, it's been mostly recon and all shotguns all the time. The motion-balls are addictive (personal UAV ftw).... I've been using the Saiga/SPAS-12 [6-rounds semi-auto], with light-weight [speed] and either magnum-ammo or body-armor.

    SO - I was thinking I should branch out a bit and try the one class I haven't played much: assault.

    Talk to me about the 40mm shotgun, and good assault rifles for CQB.

    Just an FYI, there is little reason to use the spas in comparison to the 870. It's reload is significantly slower than the 870.

    Assault weapons are very preference based in my opinion, but the best "all-rounder" would definately be the HK-416. It has excellent ironsights, great reload time, excellent accuracy in short bursts, and a great ROF in close quarters.



    As you can see the AEK and M16 damage does not drop over range.

    Do not underestimate the M16 in close range. It's ROF in this game is NUTS!

      Personally I always use the M16 although before that I used the XM8, but really those are the only 2 that suited me. The M16 is my personal sniper rifle, I can literally snipe across any map and still be just as deadly in close combat.

          The 40MM shotgun is arguably the strongest among all shotguns. In CQ situations, such as navigating through buildings, I know some players equip it as their primary then switch to the AR if needed, since it's that effective.

            I don't really agree with that. If it was that OP like you say at least 50% people would be using it but I see people using F2000,AN-94,M416 a lot. I played a round just so I could find out how many people were using M16 and to my surprise only 3-4 out of around 20 assualt counted for (without myself included).

            It may have the edge over some guns but not by much, and it's still a question of what gun suits your more

                XM8 is the best assault rifle in the game. Great in close quarters, great at range. Slightly tighter recoil and feel than the M416. XM8 + 40MM Shotgun + Magnum Ammo + your scope of choice.

                  I actually like M416 or XM8 because of the sights. It frees up another upgrade (extra grenades) as I don't feel I need a red dot.

                  I just got my last unlock yesterday, so I'm still playing around trying to see how they all work. But so far my favorite is XM8, 40mm grenades, extra grenades, and either body armor or explosives upgrade.

                    I never said it was "OP". The problem lies in the fact that AR's are used to snipe across full maps.

                      But it takes extreme accuracy so 95% of people can not do it. DICE is rewarding players who put a crap ton or effort (and have no lives :)) into the game. Personally I like the XM8 as well but I mostly just run around with the 40mm shotgun because it is so crazy powerful and can one hit kill from 50 meters away without even scoping.

                        When "across the map" is only 300m max on 90% of maps, I don't think it's ridiculous at all.

                          I pretty much have only used the M416, even after unlocking the rest... Like everyone said, it is personal preference thing, but now I just cant use anything else. It rocks at distance, regardless of what that scale reads, especially with an ACOG on it.If you can click fast enough, it becomes single fire, and accuracy is really nice at that point.

                          Which is why you dont need sniper rifles when you can put an ACOG on a LMG, like the M60, or AR and be ten times as effective... and more helpful to the team.

                            I love the assault class. XM8 Prototype or the AUG equipped with a 40 MM shotgun is one of my favourite load-out(s).

                              I guess I should practice more - I just can't do ANYTHING with 40mm Shotgun.
