I dislike the one hit kill weapons UNLESS you are talking about a fifty cal sniper gun head shot, otherwise it ruins the game. If you have a weapon with that capability then there should be some massive downside like a reticule that takes twice as long to return to it's original size and/or very slow movement to balance the devastating firepower.

Weapons like that ALWAYS have some work around like guys who run around with a one hit sniper weapon and use it like a SMG. Balancing issues will make or break a multi-player experience and if you want people to play your game long term than you better listen to the fan base.

The beta should help Epic weed out some of these balancing issues.

Looks awesome. I'm excited to try it out during the beta. I wish though Epic would cut the shotgun once and for all in online play. Destructoid is right in a cover shooter it has no place in online play. Why can't we just get a choice of a few pistols as a secondary weapon? Maybe than people might play the game as it was meant to be played. Yes, I also use the shotgun, but only because it's the only choice you have against some people.

Its a shotgun of course its going to kill with one shot at close range. I dont have a problem with. With a title like Gears of War, I would expect that anything goes.
