Obviously I am a noob here but I am hoping to work my way to becoming a slightly more valuable team-mate.

Whenever I get into a one-on-one shottie shootout with my enemy, I tend to lose. Sometimes I even fire the first shot! I have tried shooting their heads, jumping around and crouching, etc. Is there a technique that you experienced guys can share? Maybe I should do a crouch-jump instead?

I DONT believe that these guys that kill me are cheating but sometimes they can kill me with one shot from their shottie, 20 metres away!

Man, I need help as this has resolved me to long range battles in open ground and camping in enclosed areas.

:uhoh: :confused:

what i do whenever i go around a corner i jump in the air and if i see someone i shoot resulting in a head shot and if the dont die i crouch and the second shot almost always kills them. try and jump towards them aiming for there heads, of course you must be really close. hopw this helps you:dance:

two things can improove your game alot, aiming and a lower ping. If your got a ping of say 250 and higher against an enemy who has a ping of 50, your screwed. Even if you fire first shot. Most of the better players have a real good aim. One thing you can do is to follow the best shotty user in a game in ghost mode and watch how he hadles the weapon.

Thanks heaps guys! I am going to do some spectating and then take on the cruel world with my 12 gauge! I just have to get away from naturally aiming at their body during an encounter. My ping usually hovers at about 40-100 so I cant really blame my ping.

well if ur still new no one will bs at u anyway... so just forget what the rest said and try this. 1st learn to use ak74 or mp5. dont use shotgun yet. learn to use those guns in close combat. ull wonder y that but ill tell u y. 1st of all close combats require that ur close doh lol, if u know how shotgun works ull know that the 1 shot from the shotgun doesnt go directly where u point! .. u can try and c. go in a server and use shotgun on a clear wall... slightly increase the difference between u and the wall and make a shot, go back to the wall and look... ull get my point. so ak and mp5 r good for close combats as it can fire rapid shots and with more accuracy, and the most important u can move away from the fight instead of staying in it with a shotgun. .. after uve gotten good enough with ak or mp5 try using shotgun. again dont listen what they say.. NO experienced player counches in the middle of a fight to use shotgun. ull b a sitting duck ready to die. the most important uing shotgun is timing, ull have to know when to make a shot, aiming is not so important even tho it counts to have aim. but aiming is not 100% of the game. timing, tactics and knowing ur sourounding is more important than aiming.... take my word... i know stuff.

umm u got it all wrong! Shotguns aka Shitguns are very good in close combat becuz they spread! if ur a n00b, and u use ak vs a shotty u will lose becuz u wudnt ahve the aim and skill etc. to hit the person, and wud end up reloading and gettin killed! with shotguns u dont need great aim, as it spreads and u will hit ppl more easily! lots of expeienced players use shotguns while crouching... its a very good tactic!

lol id like u to try those tactics of urs in sof2files.com server.. c what ur shotgun can do vs an ak... as ur shotgun bullets will spread all over the place and reducing my health by a small fraction... my ak in the mean time will go directly into u.. it takes 1 burst.

and by the way heres the ip 38.113.32.66:20100
