    Heres how it goes, i've watched the video and like using the USAS so i'll log off here and go play MW3 thinking "I can do that!"

     

    I'll put on the ps3 start a game.

    Shoot someone in the face but die and kill cam will show i was actually 2 seconds behind where i thought i was.

     

    Probably rage quit, try a game of drop zone, get more insanely bullshit deaths, switch off ps3.

     

    Rinse and repeat. Im still doing it, i dont know why.

    To be honest, it went quite well earlier today. Flanking is my general playstyle but I usually get caught up a bit in the action as I'm just a lone wolf.

    Video is great and the tips work.

    Your stats are not too shabby either, even on your mess about account.

    Wow that's great you find this useful. I did think I waffled a lot more and had meant to talk about other things. My stats are of null importance on my second account But it's funny my KD is 1.5ish. Cos all I used to do was run around doing really silly things. I am near always in a party of good guys, so me going negative trying to get stupid sniper kills doesn't hurt my team.

     

    Used to QS, have c4 only matches, pistols only etc. So it's doing well to be where it's at. Although, it's amazing how well you can do with these secondaries if you follow the same guidelines in the main video. It's all about Map knowledge. I went MVP 3 matches running with my party while using magnum only. 3+ KD each game ha ha.

    My USAS which I now have gold never worked like that. LOL.

     

    Hit marker after hit marker is all it ever gave me and the rate of fire is so much slower than the Striker that there really isn't a lot of point to it IMO. Having said that, my connection seems a little better these days. Maybe I'll break it out again.

    I use the shotguns all the time. Ever since MW. i have maps that i use them on but like all weapons in this game some times they work well and outher time they suck.

    Looks like you should have just ranked it up on your main account. Nice video. Having a shotgun on damage is always nice. Especially with the usas-12  it's good for when you get the shi-t spawn on dom, with extreme conditioning, as you can just run to the B flag in one sprint, since it has that speed bonus. I always start off with it then.

    I love using shotguns, but I get many WTF moments, like I ADS shot him in the chest from 5 feet away and still did not get the kill?

     

    Something I only considered recently (yeah everyone can be a noob about anything at anytime) is the pellets shoot out randomly in the x-hairs, so sometimes only a few nit at any usable range (which is why you can hip fire someone at 10 feet and get a OHK, and then doit again and only get hitmarkers and no kill) - see setups below.

     

    IMO, anyone can spray and pray with an AR or snipe you from across the map, but using shotguns takes a lot of patience, a bit of luck and a buttload of skill/strategy.

     

    So far I have these gold (now that I am done prestiging)

     

    Model (fav, but most frustrating) - use damage

    USAS (most consistent) - range or damage (I prefer range)

    AA12 (straight up fun) - range, but you will wish you had damage if you run into a group of people up close

    Striker (most usable, maybe too easy so less fun) - range everyday

     

    The SPAS has range (love it)... when I get damage I will likely use it

     

    The KSG is level 30 (I may go for gold some day) - damage

     

    Typical setup: SOH/QD*/SA

    AA12 setup: Scavenger/HL/SA (specialist: SOH/xxx/xxx)

     

    Damage is better on level/pump actions because you need the greater potential for a OHK.  If play HC, put range on everything.

     

    * I find QuickDraw a good 2nd perk because you can ADS fast so you can shoot with a tight bullet spread. If you cannot ADS (or does not make sense to, Steady AIM is required for the hipfire)

     

    I got a more impressive streak with a model, but I forgot to record it and could no longer remember what game it was (I should have backed out of the lobby). This one is on my trek to getting the striker gold (posted before)

    Definitely give it a wee shot. Im still finding it a treat. Do let me know how you get on.

     

    I have an Xbox which I rarely play on, had a bash doing it earlier on it and I honestly think its even more inconsistent on that platform. Strange!!!
