Well, people tend to call other people noobs at the drop of a hat. It means one of three things, depending on the context;

1. You're a very inexperienced player or an experienced player who made a rookie mistake (this sense is rarely used anymore as it makes too much sense for modern gamers. See instead defs. 2 and 3.)

2.When applied to an item or tactic: "that is a good weapon/tactic. I wish I had thought to do that first."

3. When applied to a person: You are better than me at this and also I am emotionally fragile.

So if we use my definition (2 and 3, mixed), then they were paying you a compliment!

Yes, people tend to fly off the handle re: the shotgun. Notice to spies: If the advantage offred by the shotgun is outweighing its disadvantages when used against you, it is almost certainly your "fault". It is made to beat aggro spies. If it seems too good, your playing style is probably contributing. A change in tactics is called for vs. the shotgun. balanced or not is always subjective but don't go around calling people noobs. Discuss the problem like, you know, intelligent people?

Anyway, when people tell me not to use the shotgun, I always roll my eyes first ("here come the aggro-spies!") and then switch to SMG and generally own or get owned just as if I still had a shotgun. People tend to blow it out of proportion a bit.

This is because they are stupid.
