    Shotgun is gud since it actually kills xenos reliably, since they can very easily just run away from rifle fire. It makes sense for the shotgun to deal lots of damage, it's a shotgun. It's a reliable way for marines to single handedly take down xenos, while the rifles only really work if you have 2 or more firing at the same time.

    It's not hard to survive a shotgun encounter doe, most if not all elder xenos survive a PB nowadays anyways.

Hell even the smg had a small period of viability in 2019. The shotgun does feel like the only useful weapon now, but I wouldn't say it's been like that for years, and the fact it is easily the most viable weapon is why people are defending it. I wish there were more options for sure, but the lack of current options is why everyone takes the shotty
    Nah the M4 was good and usable back in 2017 and 2018 but the shotgun was still the best. I wasn't playing when the L42 was good, but I heard it kicked a lot of ass and was a legitimate alternate choice for marines that didn't require you to unga at xenos to be effective. The shotgun has mostly received nerfs over the years though.

    Shotgun only started to be the best with PB meta in September 2018. M41 was dominating in 2017 and early-mid 2018 even after QF AP was gone. Hell during PB meta, BC M41 was a legitimate loadout that rivals shotgun damage but allows you to be way safer. But after the infamous John Titor patch, only shotgun remains.

    QF L42 was a niche choice that gives you high fire rate, zero fall off, zero wield slowdown, zero wield delay. But dev killed that entire niche in order to force L42 to be a DMR only to be used from range or with the B8 scope

    _ BE-X for xeno
