Why is the 5 shells instead of 6!

I mean its the Shotgun! I get why they went fro to 12 to 6 but 6 to 5? Why?

Probably for balancing reasons when it comes to reserve ammo/ammo that isn’t in the clip.

Well its a dumb thing to do if you ask me. I get the Scatter shot since that thing is powerful but the shot no so much.

Except the part where the gun in your hand can legitimately stop you from dying from the scattershot.

Is that what has been happening? I swear I’d shove a scattershot into someones chest and pull the trigger and they would look as if I hadn’t even hit them.

Mostly because this shotgun is the most useful it’s been since CE especially once we get into the higher variants. And with smart-scope and sliding, it’s certainly more effective than prior games.

I was thinking that too. The scattershot is a peashooter when I use it apparently.

Yep, test to prove it.
Not even the Shotgun does this.

It’s a peashooter when you hit them from the front for some reason. From behind it actually works as a Shotgun. It’ll take you like 3 bounce shots to kill someone.

Thats 2 bounce shots too many.

Someone hand me my good ol’ hitscan-based shotty

I know you can occasionally bounce a plasma off the weapon someone is holding still. I’ve had one bounce off a player and stick me… quite embarrassing. I guess it was revenge for my Halo CE stunt when I meleed a plasma grenade and it stuck the thrower in the face… /sigh 12 years later, karma finally caught up to me…
