There is nothing more satisfying to me than tracking someone down as pulse and just blowing them away through a wall with the shotgun.

Are they? I've never had any luck with shotguns. They seem to have terrible range before the pellets become peas. I've fired at dudes that were very close to me only to die from return fire while they walk away with 75 health.

It depends on what shotgun you use. The pump shotguns are very dangerous for a surprising distance, the SAS, GIGN, and GSG9 shotguns in particular. The SAT's Supernova cycles pretty slowly, but hits like a truck as well. If someone walks away with a lot of health, you probably missed a good portion of pellets.

There's so much utility with them too, it makes sense to pick it as your main weapon if the operator has a machine pistol secondary.

The GSG9 shotgun seems to have the best combination of range, power and refire rate.

Hibana with Supernova is fun, but punishing if you miss. I occasionally go GSG9 recruit to have a 3 speed attacker with the sickest shotgun in the game.

I don't know what you guys are smoking the supernova is by far the worst pump shotgun and is possibly worse than the nerfed Benelli M4 since at least that shoots fast.

Jan 28, 2011



people like it since the overall update because it is less bad than it was. really all the shotguns are just good enough to care about bringing at least 1 with you unless you are running buck/sledge. and even then sledge with a shotgun is fun as heck because you can practically demolish the map

i play shotguns a lot even though bothering to aim a rifle is generally objectively better in every way that isn't a breach hole and that is mostly due to ammo consumption

fun loadouts:

ela silenced semi auto w/grzmots is the #1 roaming ambush spec in game (sorry kapkan mains)

smoke/thatcher/doc shotguns will let you use your ability through walls and ceilings you normally couldn't

if bandit is taken, recruit gsg shotgun = 3 speed AND nitro

mira/jackal have optional double shotguns which is extremely lol when it works

also the saiga forever owns if you bother to creep around with it like anton chigurh

Attacking recruit with french shotgun + grenade and breaches is one of my go-tos if I want to mess around. Blow open the entire ceiling above them hopefully while simultaneously doming their heads.

Technically Buck may fill the niche better but his shotgun is so much less satisfying.

If you have cable internet and coaxial cables running in your house you can extend ethernet to anywhere you have a coaxial cable using MoCA adapters. This might be helpful to get an ethernet drop closer to your system so you can set up another wireless router or repeater, or maybe even run the ethernet directly to your console.

Works similarly to the powerline adapters. You will need additional coaxial cables so keep that in mind.

I ended up getting the powerline adapter. It's night and day.

I really don't like the SMB shotgun, just because it's so binary. We didn't need a railgun in the game, and fair enough being dinked in the head unavoidably is part of the game sometimes, but why enable that further?

E: Also that madness with cached avatars can have legal ramifications - There's multiple countries where ownership or storage of certain imagery is illegal (not just porn either, there's plenty of weird edge cases) but perfectly fine elsewhere, so by joining an R6 game, you could end up committing an actual crime. Bravo there guys, well done.

if some peasant is facing jailtime because of a chance encounter with a transexual furry whose avatar is a .jpeg of their imaginary-self wearing a nazi swastika hat, it says more about the local government than it does the devs who forgot to auto-clear arbitrary temp files for their players

Hey gurl, hey.


Ubisoft is fine at developing games but they need to hire a team to fix their back end poo poo. The entirety of Uplay smacks of "we hired a contractor to build this poo poo." Now, this is all speculation, but I work an environment that attempts to coordinate many different vendors and contractors to achieve a common goal and it's a nightmare. It might not be the most cost effective solution but they need to bring that poo poo in house.

Hard, am I right? Is Uplay a nightmare contraption built from the products of many different vendors?

I mean of the four I listed I only actually care about Far Cry, as it scratches an itch for me, and the upcoming installation looks promising for a myriad of reasons. I never cared about Assassin's Creed as I burned out after the second installment, but people seem to be really enjoying the latest one? Similarly for Division and Wildlands, neither are really my jam, as I can never jive with third person shooters over first person shooters, but people seem to be enjoying them lately? As for For Honor, I thought it was a cool idea, but lacked depth, and that seems to be common opinion about it: It's really cool, but no one cares about it.

I don't have any personal investment in a Triple-Aô publisher doing well, but of all the other ones out there, they seem to be doing alright? Never quite got the hate they get to this day. They definitely had a lot of teething issues when Uplay was first a thing, but they seem to be over the worst of it. Caching avatars isn't that bad in the grand scheme of things.

Also probably worthwhile to mention that Ubisoft has put out quite a few cool indie projects like Valiant Hearts and Grow Home.

same, but they gave me a free copy of 3 and 4 so i guess that's something to try the next time siege servers are down

the first FarCry game was awesome until you went into that bunker and there were like literally giant mutant zombie monkey monster things with rocket launchers. but then FarCry 3 was everything i wanted from a tropical island rambo simulator and then some. burning the weed fields to Skrillex might be one of the funniest things i've ever seen in a videogame - magically etching vapid tribal bro tats directly into your forearm as you level up and descend into the heart of darkness

also idk about the rest of the Splinter Cell series but Chaos Theory was extremely my poo poo

i think a big thing that keeps me from diving into most ubisoft games is that they fall heavily into the "run to the 💎 on your HUD" gameplay which is boring but they put a lot of great work into their aesthetics

anyway, Siege is good even if they want to be dumb about sporadic patching and wasting dev resources on single player bullshit that we will all play a few times then ignore completely. idc so long as i get to roam new maps until im lost as quirky characters whose abilities i'll never fully master
