shotguns are really fun.

Also improves your skill level, because you need to think a lot harder because you need to get close first to have any chance of surviving. Flanking and stuff.

Got about 1100 usas kills. It's my most used fun. I'm thinking of switching to the pump action though.

It has very little spread compared to the other shotguns.

Flying is a real challenge for me, I'm able to fly the jet but unable to line targets up for the kill, I've tried K/M and PS3 controller and I suck at both....should I try a joystick instead

I'm thinking about doing the same. Only way i'm able to kill anything in the Jet, is to slow it right down

I've never really flown at all in MP games....I want to get the hang of it, as I think I'm missing so much. As soon as I take off someone has a lock on me and I'm done for lol.

Have you tried console controllers ?

what sort of shells do you guys use in the shotties? i've tried them all but seem to get the most effective kills with the default .12 gauge shot. but there's also the flechette, frag, and slug. thoughts?

what was the guy using in that shotgun sniper video? slug?

all replies must be extremely swiff.

I don't have a controller. My son has a PS3, but i don't know if that will work on a PC, even though it is USB.

It works, this what I did http://www.gamefront.com/how-to-use-...oller-on-a-pc/... I still think I need a joystick though. Any suggestions on what joystick to get would be much appreciated.

Thinking about this one, its pretty cheap.

use USAS with default shot, that's the best at killing. and with USAS, you can kill people fairly easily at medium range, too. Just aim for upper body. And at close range, one or two shots kills, so you decimate entire squads...

of course, the power to decimate squads with the USAS is insignificant compared to the power of the force.

but i still haven't unlocked the USAS.

Sad... Why is it sad ?

I agree with the rest of your comment though it is filled with hackers on the lobbys. However, i only play Clan matches and ESL versus...just an fyi http://www.esl.eu/uk/#/eu/versus/

In ESL versus players can jump into a party of 5 via the ESL website, join a dedicated server and play a tactical game of search and destroy...No hackers here either as each person has to be running ESL WIRE anticheat which imo is the best anticheat available yet.

Also did i state anywhere that MW3 was better than BF3 ? no i didn't so y'all get the **** off your high horses, i simply prefer to play MW3 in a tactical and strategic way than i would to playing BF3 on a public server.

As for your 'full of kids' comment...well, seems with the comments posted here that MW3 isn't the only game full of kids eh ?

there really is no going back from it on canals. once i am done with this handgun bs, USAS is going to be my weapon of choice for TDM.
