Nothing was done to the shotguns and I'm glad, in fact trophy system was given more range. Seriously you guys must want a game with no challenge lol.
R870 is the only Shotty I've leveled to gold, after that I rarely pick it up, but I just did because there where several Shotty guys out today. Kill fire with fire! Worked excellent.
Even if I don't like to die from a Shotty it feels MUCH worse to die from one of those AA Quickscoper wannabes who run around in Domination and never ever take a flag. Die from a Shotty CQ is what you are supposed to do but die from a guy who run and gun with a Sniper rifle feels like dying of a glitch.
