I never understood the seeming consensus that BL 2 was harder than the first one. For me, it's not even close. I was barely able to beat sooo many parts solo in the first game. Even Crawmerax could be solo without cheating using the Siren. In BL 2, it took me until the Dust to die for the 2nd time. Yeah the Raid bosses are impossible to solo but other than that the rest of the game is easier.
And to OP, you probably won't find a good shotgun. They nerfed most of the shotguns compared to the first game. The only ones worth using are the Torgue and Hyperion ones if you can get good ones.
Dude, the shotguns suck balls in this game. I'm on level 17. The best shotgun I have found does 35x7 damage with 15 ammo clip. Sure there was a lot that I found that did more damage, but they only had like 2 or 3 shots until the clip was empty, then i'd have a very slow reload. And what is up with all this "fires 2 shots per shot" crap? I hate that so much. Especially with the electric pistols that have 7 ammo clip, its stupid.
I've found a lot of explosive damage shotguns, but the projectiles are so slow that you dont hit anything, terrible combo for a shotgun.
Shotguns straight up blow nuts in this game.
The biggest problem with shotties in BL 2 is the crap accuracy. They try to make up for this by increase the pellet count which is why most shots take up 2 or 3 ammo. The explosives are slow but travel straight if you get a good one and can be used to pepper an area really well. Other than that all of them are useless other than Hyperions cause of the accuracy increase when you fire them. There are some Jacobs that have 100% criticals and those are really good. I had a Jacobs that fired 18 pellets with 100% accuracy and it wrecked everything from medium range and in.
Shotguns aren't meant to be accurate. I also don't understand how people fins shotguns crap. If im down and dying, my shotguns the best weapon to use if someone's near me. It also makes quick work of heavier baddies to, instead of putting hundred's of assault rifle or smg ammo into it.
