Is this information still relevant ?
I started about a month ago
Romero slugs and a stripper pistol (forgot name) is my fav to run
Specter with regular shells and lemat fire rounds with fanning
New Video with all shotgun Spreads for buckshot and pennyshot please 🤗
Plz make a new updated video on this topic
Do you intend to update your take on shotguns? Custom ammo has significantly upgraded the capability of some of these weapons. I’d love to hear your take on it.
Can’t really beat the Romero. For those watching now the handcannon has improved spread since this video was posted including the hatchet version which seems to have pretty much identical spread now.
Pretty new to the game but one of my favorite kills was a double kill with the short double barrel shotgun.
Me and my team got into a heated gun fight in a road near some trees. I made some pot shots with a pistol and ducks into the bushes. I could hear bullets wizzing by. I snuck through the foilage and flanked and single shotted each of the two surviving enemies dropping them instantly. Super satisfying.
i take the romero or cadwell over any other shotgun in this game.
Idk how you can forget that the Specter Bayonet is sawed off at the tip and reduced from 12 to 10 meters and is also why the spread is greater. Yet quick to announce the Romero Hatchet’s 1m reduction and spread increase.
I do like the specter but yeah the pump feels like an entire lifetime in the game. Enough time to eat a headshot if anyone was able to remain cool after getting peppered.
Lemat shotgun shell is so satisfying.. I’ve gotten 5 surprise bops with it this week alone 😀
That explains why I feel like the lemat shotgun shell isn’t doing anything… ITS LITERALLY GOES EVERYWHERE
Great video! Loved how you added the spray patterns.
Specter number one
I like using 2 lemats with a scoped rifle so you got long range med range and anti melee in one build.
Shotguns are pure trash in this game…the most unrealistic and over estimated spread I’ve seen
Basically shotguns in Hunt aren’t better than throwing knives despite faster projectile speed
Well okay I’m fine with shotguns in e.g. Far cry series where tye spread is high but it is possible to 2-tap enemies at decent distance but Hunt…Shotguns in Hunt are a joke
Though fun to use for defence as melee weapon
I learned about the specters slow rof the hard way.
Me: "about 6 meters away from target, I hit a shot"
Opponent: "still alive, they pull out their secondary"
Me: "I pull the tr-"
Opponent: "unloads half a clip of a chain revolver worth of lead straight into my skull thanks to the fanning perk"
Me: "ded :("
I’m a fan of the lamat ii
And the specter
It’s usually my primary loadout those two
But today I learned, that bayonet is poo poo
5:46 wtf is this, comfortably reloading in the enemys face, while hes shooting at you??? I would have received 3 head shots doing that.
I fought and nearly wiped a trio with the compact specter. Granted, they were a bit boosted and I probably could have killed the last guy had I ducked under his knife. This is why you don’t split up from your random trio buddies! They did to booster teams lol
question: does the fire rate affect spread? i.e. if I spam the Crown & King as fast as possible will the spread be widened (aside from the point-of-aim moving with recoil)?
The Romero hatchet currently has a glitch where the spread actually tightens significantly while you are aiming down the sights!!! Just a heads up to anybody
LeMarkII shotgun version saved my ass so many times xD
Tbh the spectre is probably my favorite shotgun. it isnt as good close as the external hammer shotguns, but it is a cheap medium range 2 shot beast. It is so reliable in the fights I find myself in, and I can deal with alot of people. I dont really know why people don’t like it besides the slower firerate (Screw the variants just the base gun)
you didnt do the lemat
I went from Caldwell over Specter to now Romero ( That blast is just unbeatable).
Any of this change with recent updates?
Are there any plans to update this with the changes to the shotgunz?
I’m guessing this was made before custom ammo became a thing?
Where is the Winfield terminus?
honestly i love the spectre
Lemat’s shotgun is actually amazing because if you’re using a sparks you’re dealing 149, and at medium range you can just shoot with the Lemat and kill him
romero talon does 150 now, ive killed many trios by shooting one and chopping the other 2
What are the new patterns for the new ammo.
Thanks for the video. I’m a fan of the Romero 77. Cheap, strong, good range.
I find shotguns to be really useful against bosses. Though I wish the 1887 lever action and 1897 pump action was in this.
The romero hatchet is the best gun in the game. I love that fella
Are these stats still true ?
I hate the crown and king I was a few meters away from a guy fired 4 shots into him and it didn’t kill him completely useless
Great vid! The Romero 77 talon is my absolute fav gun in the game. My aim ain’t that good, so i have to compensate that with speed and close quarter fights. It works really well in this game!
With the recent update shotguns lost the ability to cause bleeding…
What‘s your opinion: Does this change affect the reliability significantly?
After this update shotguns somehow feel even more RNG. I got ~15 meter hitmarker with a Rival Handcannon dealing heavy damage and miss people with a Romero Hatchet at approx. 5 meters.
One of the ways the Specter seems inconsistent is because people don’t aim high enough. From his figure you can see that the pellet spread is centered almost entirely bellow the middlepoint of the crosshair. This means that you have to aim higher than other shotguns to land your pellets to the upper chest and get a killshot.
So if you’re just taking the base specter for a spin without knowing this (or more commonly getting used to the weapon and adjusting through muscle memory) you’re going to have a hard time aiming it like other shotguns.
funny how it seems the romero 77 is one of the best shotguns because of how it easily outclasses the others in range and damage
What about lever action shotty with levering?
addicted to your shotgun focused content 🤤
Good video for when it was made… but with 1.4.0 it is now outdated and spreads false information (primarily that the romero hatchet is worse than the hand cannon).
Romero handcannon as a backup for the springfield compact striker. Now thats a real mans loadout
It’s been almost a year, the shotguns have changed quite a bit, would be cool to see an updated shotgun video like this one
