Riot Shotgun Is Over Powered

Riot shotgun is way to over powered. Needs nerfing ASAP.

75 armour and 100 health goes in 2 shots from this weapon. Who balances the weapons on this game? They need sacking as they don't know what they're doing with the guns.
This game is not fun with this weapon being sooooooooooooo over powered.

As I'm writing this one of my team just got 100 mph drove on and shot with a combat in the back, the opposing team then nearly killed other players.

Nerf Needed.

Bet the devs don't play their own game because then they would understand where players are coming from

    I'm confused. Are we talking about the Riot or the Combat shotgun?
  • MrCGMMrCGM Reactions: 10Member
    The riot shotgun.

    Got shot twice with it and it took 75 armour and 100 health off me. I was dead.

    It's to over powered and needs nerfing.

    Nope that's exactly how it should be. The riot shotgun is fine how it is. The riot needs a buff since it got useless now. Makes two purple guns with the desert eagle that nobody picks up.

    lol what on earth do you think happens when hit at close range with a shotgun? 

    PUBG is a two shot kill, or one shot with headshot. 

    It's fine as it is. Just get better at dealing with close quarter situations i.e. hit your first shotgun hit then finish with hellfire.

    Does this look like we're playing an amazing game like pubg? No.... Exactly we're playing a cheap knock.

    Just gone on solo. as soon as I'm in the game there is already a game trying to chase me on foot with a riot shotgun. shoots me once at a distance and takes more than 50% of my health off me.
    I had to drive away just to survive. Tried to shoot him with a hellfire. He stood there and survived it.

    I just closed application at that point. Daybreak games are so bad at making games and then ignoring players.

    The riot and the combat are fine now.
    Stop complaining a little :/
    Improve your gameplay, try to stay in long range with a best AR15 accuracy and it will be fine.
    (don t take it badly)

    Stop it already. The shotguns have been adjusted enough. Both spread and damage have been tweaked. Fall damage from high speed vehicles have made the kamikaze tactic easy less useful. 
    Shotguns are supposed to be a powerful close quarter weapon. You can't nerf it to a point where it's less effective at close range than a sub machinegun. 
    I hate the shotgun and avoid close combat as much as possible. Others look for close combat because they're good with a shotgun. 
    I suggest keeping your distance and if possible back away from shotguns. You don't need much distance before a hellfire will beat a shotgun if you have decent aim.
    I was close to quitting in H1Z1 because I had so many rounds end in bitter disappointment when someone jumped out of a speeding vehicle and shotgunned me. The nerfing hit the sweet spot. I'll still get killed if a player gets real close and lands the first two shots, but any more than that, the better spread and faster ads of the hellfire puts them down.

    You should just go to PUBG, this game is clearly not for you

    You can tell who plays this game and who doesn’t, if you’re someone who says the Combat Shotgun is OP you play a lot and if you say the Riot Shotgun is OP your shotgun skills need work. Mind you I’m also saying this game DOES have a lot of problems

    Well said. 
    I think the combat is getting there though, doesn't need much nerfing to be acceptable.

    Sorry but a lot of these complaints about shotgun and now gas grenades and flashbangs are indications of a players inexperience and lack of understanding of the art of combat fps. I consider myself a vocal critic of h1z1 issues (framerates,server) but to say that certain tactical mechanics are broken or OP is almost ridiculous. To gas or flashbang a house with potential camper with shotgun is a high level maneuver. Also to use a flashbang takes decent level of skill because it effective radius is quite small. Actually starting to wonder if some of these posters are trolling now...

    I think that one was sarcastic for sure.

    Whoops. I didnt read properly. I thinking defending certain aspects of gameplay have become a reflex now lol. But the point about whether an issue is about gameplay mechanics or a person inexperience is quite important.

    I completely agree. I think that was the point of the sarcasm as well. It's easy to consider something OP, if you don't know how to counter it.
    And nowhere is that more obvious than with the shotguns in this game.

    I honestly don't see the issue here. I see two guys fire something like 16 shots to kill 5 guys at point blank range. That doesn't seem OP to me. 
    But maybe that was your point, I don't know what kappa means ☺️
