Wow. Shotguns suck in this one. Knifing as usual is ****ed. Other than that I'm liking the game.

From what I've seen, shotguns are pretty effective, but the mechanics are rather odd. The spread of the pellets themselves depends on if you go into iron sights as well as if you have a laser sight. Other than the KSG, which shoots slugs.

I havn't seen too much knifing, but it can't be worse than BO1 in detection, or the range of that commando perk.

Well it took me 4 aimed shots with the saiga to down someone within reasonable range. It took me two aimed shots to the body with the slug gun to down a guy. Not very good.

The knifing is the same broken mechanic as every other cod. Panic knifing through a hail of assault rifle bullets is standard MO.

I understand that they make the guns take 3-6 shots to kill to make the game playable, especially with crappy net connections and no dedicated servers. What I will never understand is how the same logic cannot apply to knives. BF3 did knives right - 1 hit kill from behind, 2 from front/sides. Played a game last night with a guy running no guns, just knives and a ton of perks. He was doing very well, but it was annoying as hell. I play hardcore a lot mainly to balance the guns with the lethality of the knives. COD is a strange place where sometimes it is a good idea to bring a knife to a gun fight.

I think it would be good fun to run around like that, along with 2 combat axes. But I can see the frustration as well. I've never understood how that knife is stronger than a .50, but they really haven't changed it's mechanics since 4.

Started screwing around with a pistol-only class, using the B23R w/ reflex and extended mags... Fun little setup. To be honest, haven't had the greatest luck k/d wise, but MAN does it piss people off lol...

And another note- I'm betting the first major nerfing will be doing something to eliminate the shock spike/bouncing betty combo that seems to be the new hot thing to do...

I have found the laser sight works better in practice.
