Okay, so I spent the last two weeks trying to figure out how to beat shotguns in PvP. While I was in the library today I, after a bit of research online, I found out that Defiance is a gun game.

That was my first clue.

After I talked to a gun specialist at a shooting range, he informed me that guns are long distance weapons.

THAT'S WHEN IT HIT ME

I don't need to run towards shotgunners if I can sit back and shoot them! :cool:

The only problem is that none of my shotguns have very much long distance. I tried using VOT Fraggers, sawed off shotties, birdshots, etc, etc. I pretty much used every single shotgun but you can't get any real damage past 20 feet.

So, that's the real problem with PvP and Defiance as a whole. There aren't any guns that can shoot long range. All the weapons at your disposal only do damage at close range. That's why EVERYONE has to use shotguns. Trion PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP.

I thought you were going to say "Use one yourself!" xD But yeah, they do have some balancing issues.

This is a gun game. If you want to beat shotguns:

1) Step out of shotgun range
2) Aim
3) Shoot
4) Shoot again
5) Win

Neither this thread or the Necro thread is as good as the Dog Owner thread. Have you read that thread yet? After I read that thread I bought the Season Pass + $20 worth of bits

No, I think the "do you even lift?" Thread from a while back was better. Made me just want to eat cheeseburgers all day.

If I wasn't lazy, I would link to a "note-sure-if" Fry image right now.

But.......yeah......um......

Assault Rifle
SMG
Pistol


Really? You have not fired ANY of these guns before?

Sometimes an image really just says it better than words can...

They need bigger maps for PVP. Shadow Wars isn't an issue with Shotguns, at least to me its not. Water front and Observatory are way to small for maps for PVP which leads to more rush down people using shotguns. Once they add bigger maps, Shotgun people will start to rethink there aspect. Unless there heavy cloak or blur users but then that can be countered. I think it can.

But images with words can say more than either alone.
