Variable Riot Shield damage

I was messing around with a friend on an empty server and we found that the riot shield doesn't always hit for the same amount of damage even in what appears to be the same place each time. Sometimes it will take me down to 60 health, others 51 and even 45 health. Does it have body damage modifiers? Are there any comprehensive stats for it?

IIRC it's actually a shotgun, firing a cone of invisible projectiles. Thus, some of them can miss, and often do.

It fires 12 pellets each doing 5 damage each.

I THINK its spread was 5 degrees.

Reddit and Konami will rewrite the records... And I will be demonized in human memory. But... The thirst for good gameplay that I have planted will infest MGO3. No one can stop it now. The Rebalance Mod will unleash that thirst unto the future.

Don't think it's changed much since

If you want Symthic style change long then you would need to give us at least 24-48hrs if you want just change notes from DICE then check the BL fourms

well it's pointless to use the shield at close range since the enemy can just shoot the small parts of you that are visible or rpg you. at range is where it actually works since nobody will be able to hurt you at long range if you have the shield up and crouch. i usually use it at 50m+ and it's a great gadget. it is also useful for peeking around corners when you know that enemies are there and they are waiting for you. i usually spot them and soak up their hits and wait for allies to take them out. with a bit of unpredictable movement you can pretty much shut down snipers at range and even if they do score a headshot it will only break the glass and they then have to get another shot to actually kill you. this has never actually happened.

i've never really thought of it as an offensive weapon and the attack seemed more like a joke ability to me.

i really don't understand why more people don't run this. it's pretty much the reason i don't bother with long range assault. why use assualt with a qbz95 when you can use support with a qbb95 and riot shield to block long range shots. any time you gt into a shootout you can't win just block and spot. this is what the internet would call "drawing agro", then just waiting for allies to kill the enemies who are shooting at you.

if this doesnt make sense blame it on alcohol
