Didn't pre-order at gamestop? Wonder just how good those shotgun with slug rounds are? Watch the video and find our for yourself and be jealous of the shotgun made sniper if you didn't pre-order.
Why in the world are we sniping with a shotgun and its working??? Thats not good
That's the best shotgun ever dude. A shotgun that's as good as a sniper rifle.
And this is why we shouldn't have weapons as Gamestop pre-order codes (we shouldn't have any pre-order codes, really....). That is bull.
There are some shot that have this range http://www.youtube.com/watc...
shotguns are letal at long range just because on CoD is only close range doesnt mean is real!
It's really no different than on Battlefield 2, where you could in fact do the same thing - snipe with a shotgun!
that was only if you added that thing to make it have better accuracy, it made it less powerful tho unless at close range
Yes the slug upgrade, same being shown in this video
Yep and in hardcore mode the shotgun slug and magnum ammo will cause instant death from no matter how far away and no matter where it hits you.. I love the shotguns in that game :) Still it does take skill to hit people from that far away quickly when they are shooting at you as everyone uses scopes in BC2.
well.... it is a slug bullet, so stop complaining
To everyone watching this vid and thinking the shotgun is way op. I am the editor and player of the video and i can tell you those long range headshots were long and lucky. I would have to fire up to 4 times in order to hit them in head from that far and the only way i would actually kill them is if i hit them twice which is easier said than done. Main thing is if you are have the slightest amount of skill in this game you can beat someone with a shotgun trying to do what i did in this video.
Never in history of shotguns has it ever been able to snipe from a distance!!! It is a close quarter combat weapon.
On the one hand, it does look very (too?) effective. On the other hand, BATTLEFIELD: Bad Company 2 had an attachment that allowed me to do the same thing. I could take out snipers from *very* large distances if I had the slug equipped.
That was one of the worst things that people complained about in Bad Company 2. It doesn't make it anymore right.
@BattleAxe Logically, it makes sense for people to complain about a one-hit-kill weapon that's effective at all three ranges. But personally, I didn't feel it was a problem. I was one of the few players I knew that actually ever used it; I hardly ever encountered it online (I played on the PS3). This may be due to the fact that in head-on, medium-close range confrontations, one needs to be skillful and accurate. If the present opponent is a decent player, it is crucial to land your first shot. If you do not, chances are, you'll be dropped while trying to pump your next round. In this way, I feel the attachment is balanced.
@MidnytRain Exactly! I play on the 360 and i platinumed the 870 and almost platinumed the other pump shotguns using the slugs. People complained but many of the people complaining only did so as they couldn't do it right! I can understand on the pc i guess as a mouse is very accurate but on a controller it does take some skill to hit first time nearly everytime!
the range that most people think is "long" in videogames only looks far because of the camera and resolution
Shotguns shoot a lot further than you think they do, and they are a hell of a lot more accurate too, especially when your using a slug. And I'm talking about real life.
I'm not familiar with shotguns at all, are they accurate from 100yds+ like they are in the video?
@mindedone Slugs can go further than 500+ yards depending on the Slug size etc, accuracy depends on a number of things, including the person holding the shotgun..
ever been hunting? Shotgun slugs do have range(up to 50m, maybe more), and this is the first game that correctly shows the advantages to slugs.
I disagree; If properly used, the 12-gauge in BFBC2 could be devastating.
Yes Shotgun slugs have 40 to 50 meters range but the representation of the power shot is wrong and too much overpower!
You're exactly right. As an any avid deer hunter would point out, any 20 gauge or 12 gauge shotgun can do at least 50 to 100 meters(with scope or modified barrel). A mossberg 850 can do better than that.
Does nobody read the part about slugs? Ofcourse it can shoot far.
That's so ridiculous. Do want.
Why are people complaining? It probably got patched by now, PSN hasn't been online since Socom 4's launch.
WTH kind of music was that?!
I bet it hasn't been patched.
They are using slugs... Why would it be patched??
good job zipper! socom 4 is garbage. what developer creates a game without a party system at launch!?
snipe and totally unbalance power!CALL OF SOCOM 4 strikes again!
for some reason All these games do this, for what ever reason can't get it right.... COD, BF2, now Socom
?This only makes me want to get into some Socom online style damn it.
that thing is missing something....scope -_-"
I was going to get this game but that just put me right off. I never use shotguns in games specifically because they are inaccurate for headshots.
on range! If your close with the spread a headshot is easy. And most games down play shotguns. With slugs you can hit a target 150 yards away which comes to 450 feet. Most modern shooters are played closer than that.
the geth shotgun is better XD I'm sorry but the music gave me a headache, is kinda kool the shot can get med-long range kills but it would kind of annoying to get killed by one these things. lets just leave shotgun close range.
lol HOLY SH1T that shotgun kick ass...
BULLSHIT. Still waiting for SOCOM 4 Zipper, not Call of SOCOM!
Please explain how Socom 4 is Call of Socom.You kids always comparing games to that piece of sh1t game.If it was CoD it would have sold 5 million copies.
Did you even watch the video? Does Akimbo Shotguns Sniping ring any bells?
