The infamous auto shotgun needs a NERF
Ive played this game for a solid time now and have reached the rank ICON on survivor. But one weapon in the hunters arsenal has been bane of my existence while climbing the ranks... the auto shotgun. Ive played with it and against it and have noticed its strenghts and weaknesses, and come to a conclusion that the strengths sevearly out-do the weak spots of the weapon. In my opinion the damage is too high for it combining its deadly ROF. I understand that its weakness is its ammo consumption and it can mess you up but still with good ammo management can be completely negated. While the regular shotgun took great timing to get the shots to hit right so they would do the maximum damage, the auto-shotgun throws that factor out the window you just need a clear line of sight behind a runner for about 1 seconds and his/shes dead. It doesnt require good aim since the mag is so large, it doesnt require timing of shots since they come out extremely fast, AND to top it off it has almost identicle damage to the regular shotgun. So in conclusion, it has a faster time-to-kill than the regular shotgun, requieres less skill to use, and the ammo problem can be easily countered. And if you combine it with fade (a skill i think should gte a slight nerf but that for another time) the hunter can walk up to you without you knowing where he is shoot you 2-4 times wich is about 1 seconds maximum and youre dead. You can react to that. sure you might hear him coming but you dont know if his cloaked or just behind some wall or where he is coming from.
I suggest its damage is sevearly reduced or the mag size made smaller
