Re: Best shotgun ammunition for 870?

Frag rounds + Acog/3.4x or 6x scout scope, and of course extended mags.

It's not amazing at CQB, because you have to be hitting them directly and not splash damaging them, unless they run into cover.

I honestly use it for mid to long and extreme ranges. My record is a 428M headshot, but I've killed folks at 500m easily without HS, trick is lobbing angle, and boy it just ROYALLY angers snipers.

Re: Best shotgun ammunition for 870?

Since I don't like using underbarrel weapons as standalones, I choose frag round to offer me some compensation for not blowing people to shreds with the M320 -8D-

Re: Best shotgun ammunition for 870?

i think the best is slugs for the 870mcs. its one shot kill in hardcore up to around 50 meters. but you need to be accurate. frags arent very good due to it being to hit kill even in hardcore im sure. you will most likely be gunned down before even pulling the trigger the 2nd time.

Re: Best shotgun ammunition for 870?

Honestly, Slugs are worthless in BF3, they are extremly snail slow, very lousy damage, and worst of all. It feels like your shooting blanks the entire time. I miss the slugs from bfbc2, now those were slugs, and boy once you mastered them, snipers hated your guts. This time around, you would be lucky to scare a fly away with a slug round.

(Well, personally I prefer buckshot, frag can go to USAS just as well)

Beware, your enemies might call it 'fagrounds' in the hope to restore their self-worth you've blasted and smeared all over the wall. oh yes 'fagrounds' that's how creative they've become now, so prepare yourself for some hefty talks gentlemen! have your shells loaded with equally cunning wit. you won't make it without.

Re: Best shotgun ammunition for 870?

oh they surely are fag rounds the moment they're loaded into an auto thats for sure, especially when suddenly the entire match your in every brings out every type of shotty with fag rounds, and the whole match goes to shit. I've had way too many of these matches.

They do a OHK up to 9 meters, so I wouldn't say the damage is lousy, but I understand what you mean about shooting blanks. I put a reflex scope on my 870, now as long as I look down the sight before firing, the high spread is never an issue, even at longer ranges.
