I love this game. i would have paid sixty dollars for this without feeling any regret. i've purchased all the DLC and plan to get anymore that are released as well. That aside, i feel like shotguns are desperately under represented, but i do very much appreciate the fact that they're far more realistically portrayed here. It seems like these days, the whole world (Joe Rogan) believes that shotguns have a maximum range of fifteen yards when this is anything but true. At any rate, i would really love to see an automatic shotgun or two, and perhaps even something like the Judge (despite how absolutely horrible they're known to actually be.) or something in that lane that is better suited. I've had people respond to my hopes for more shotguns in game by suggesting an automatic shotgun would be over-powered in sandstorm, but i think it's totally justified. Shotguns are OP in real life. Let's see a SPAS12 or a Binelli or perhaps both? Even a paid DLC weapon-pack featuring additional guns would be fine with me. Lastly, may i also suggest that some of the 5.7mm chambered weapons would be a great fit for this game. Thanks in advance, and thanks for building such a polished professional release in an age of poorly-optimised and perpetually unfinished titles.
paid skins is one thing, and I do have paid for all the skin dlcs as well just to throw some money at them as the original purchase price was and remains a joke in my opinion.
paid weapons on the other hand would be the definite end of it, and me and my community probably as well would drop out

Totally agree, or at least a semi-automatic shotgun. They're common enough on the modern battlefield it's pretty silly to see them completely unrepresented in the game.
perhaps even something like the Judge (despite how absolutely horrible they're known to actually be.)
Ewwww, no. Well, maybe for the Insurgents, but it's really far more of a civilian meme gun than a practical combat gun.

Not really. Limited range, small magazine capacity, slow reload, and poor armor penetration are all reasons why shotguns remain specialist weapons in modern militaries while rifles and carbines are the standard issued weapons. There are real life reasons why shotguns aren't carried by every soldier, it shouldn't be that difficult to leverage these reasons to balance a realistic game.

Agreed. The P-90 is a pretty rare sight in war zones but it is certainly iconic. The Five-seveN has probably seen more actual use in the Middle East, and it would bring some badly needed variety to the handgun options.
