I absolutely love using shotguns and it sucks when I can only use 2 shotguns (striker and spas-12) to get 1-2 shot kills. (Can't say anything about the aa12 because I haven't tried it out for a whole match.)

I agree, just got my KSG to level 30 today, every other shotgun bar the AA12 is already gold, so my job is nearly complete After that I'm going for 2500 kills with all the shotguns (except the striker, which I already have 22k kills with >.>
The KSG has been the most painful shotgun to use, a lot of my games I will only maintain a neutral K/D or negative K/D, about 50% of the time I go positive. In comparison to the other shotguns I'ld nearly always go positive D:
Damage has made it slightly more bearable, but I still cringe when I land a shot on someones chest with damage, on my pump action KSG, and then they spray me down before I have a chance to pump it :'(
Shotguns with damage is IMO how they should be from a base level.

The shotguns are a lot more bearable with extended mags + range/damage, but even with them most of them are a lot less effective than their MW2 counterparts. The SPAS-12 for example has OHK range of around 10 feet less than MW2's Spas-12 (without extended mags and damage/range it's much less than that).
Also the KSG-12 is a piece of ****! I was playing with it in hardcore today and was still getting hitmarkers at point blank!

If they buff Shotguns they will be worse than quickscopers. Everyone will be running around with one hit kill weapons that are potent at mid-range.
The video above is an example of what you people expect. He was CLEARLY out of range for a shotgun in the first clip (and should have been) and off target in the second. You Shotgun people are wanting a super wide spread with extra long range. IMO that would be a HUGE problem.

I think what they were trying to do was to nerf the MW2 secondary shotgun thing by making you use overkill so you would get a bit of a disadvantage. But the shotguns do suck!

im grinding the striker just now just to have the option of a decent shotty should i need it. ive just unlocked range and tbh i still think its horrible . ill get it gold then let it gather dust. id rather any smg than the shotguns in this game and i used my m1014 religiously in mw1 n 2 . so so dissapointed in them this time round. i expected a slight buff to the previous standards when i heard they were primaries again. wtf?
