Well I'm not sure how good Tactical Mask is because I don't always run it. I nearly always run Engineer personally. I've read up on the Russian updated version of Nova gas and it's pure evil. Plus make Dual Band see through Nova gas or something so it's basically green lethal smoke. I just think that weapon need not always be a gun really unless it adds variety by quite a bit.
Treyarch should make a shotgun as a DLC weapon. As it stands, the 870 is the only shotgun worth using currently. Make another good shotgun and maybe we will get a little more variety other just SMGs and ARs.
Personally... not a fan of shotties. I'd never use it.
Shotgun, Dragonbreath rounds, pump action with grip to make it slightly faster than 870. Less initial damage than the 870, but causes burning damage for a few seconds.
New guns should add a new experience to the game, the peacekeeper failed at that, it may as well never have been added.
No, not the AK47, or any other regular gun, as we have all the regular guns we'll ever need. As it is, the peacekeeper is just more work for people who want to diamond all their guns, I don't know anyone who says they are adding it to their permanent selections.
Its called attempting to keep balance in the game not "lets insert a really OP weapon" all you kids want everything to be soooo easy now-a-days...
Shotguns aren't OP. If you die to shotgunners more than you kill them, it is because you are bad- this isn't a shooting gallery, but shotgunners are as close to a free kill as there is in this game.
Once I am done getting gold on the SMGs they get put away and the shotguns come out to play for good.
