    Does The Pentagun Need Reworking?

    I'd like to poll the general public and see what they think of the Pentagun. I know I've heard a lot of people bemoaning it in-game, but I haven't heard much talk of it on the forums. What do you think?

    The dev team just needs to replace the pentagun all together with a different shotgun.

    You haven't heard much talk in the forums. Are you reading the right forums lol.

    Think it's safe to say almost all the forum crawls agree that the pentagun needs to be tossed in a deep dark hole and lost forever.

    It is possibly the most OP weapon in the game. I own an ns2000, it's good for 256 damage, and the penta will ruin me 9/10 times. ANY other shotgun is more difficult to use, and as it's available at level 5, it's in need of a serious nerf, or removal.

    Wow. When Creep, maker of the infamous pentagun pwnage reel, agrees that the weapon is OP, I think that's an open-shut case :P

    I'm actually a tad offended here. I used the pentagun from level 5-7(so like 15-20 matches maybe?) , realized it was way too powerful, and went back to the mk5 and then the m96 until I could afford the Benelli. I have never made a single video highlighting the pentagun, nor would I. My weapon proficiency on the penta is the same as the one on my Benelli, and I have spent WAY more time rocking the Benelli, if that says anything about the nature of the UberShotty.

    You basically just called me a noob, and an abuser of an OP weapon. Not trying to be a jerk, but I have already been insulted on these forums today, and I'm not feeling really friendly at the moment.

    I'm glad you agree it's a cheap weapon, and I hope it gets the rework/removal it needs. I don't glitch, I don't camp ten feet outside the spawn, and I DON'T USE THE PENTAGUN. Ask some of the other players, and the guys I run with, when they last saw me with a pentagun.


    Take a look at the #2 spot for specialist shotgun kills, guess what he's using? Yeah, I'm #5, and I did most of those sans FlakCannon.

    Oh, my! Absolutely not even in the slightest whatsoever, sir! You've severely misread my tone. 'Twas truly a light-hearted statement giving you props for a solid video (which, now that I think about it, that video may have been from Superhero, lol), and stating that if someone who obviously has vast experience with how to handle not only the weapon type, but that particular gun, agrees that it's OP, then it's probably true.

    No disrespect intended at all, not ever.

    Sorry for the misleading statement.
