This. I still hate how USAS is banned on most servers... I mean for me there isn't really a use of a shotgun atm. for everything further away then a weaponlength, a asult rifle will beat a shotgun. I mean it's damn hard to clear the hallway on metro if you arn't allowed to use close quater weapons, which leads into epic camping and just anoyes (want to use buckshot btw).
Btw, am I the only one that was even before the patch crap with FRAG rounds? I mean I always killed guys WAY faster with my asult rifle then with frag rounds also I loved it to blow myself up (did try it once or twice then gave up on shotguns).
