Why are shotguns banned in a lot of Xbox servers?
I have been on a lot of servers recently as I am a new player and I have noticed on most servers there is a shotgun ban. Is there any particular reason[s] a lot of players tend to ban the use of shotguns?
One key reason is many people believe they are completely overpowered in close quarters which eliminates all real skill and encourages a sort of run and gun play style. This is especially a problem in close quarter maps, where it effectively forces everyone to use a shotgun to be in with any real competitive chance. Which just creates a race to get the best shotgun rather than actually using any real skill.
Another reason was due to some of the glitches relating to the M26 I believe.
