    I will choose damage once I unlock it.

    I heard by some un-reliable, underage sources that Damage gives your gun extra range too.

    Increasing the damage might feel like it increases the range because you wont need to hit as many pellets to get a kill.

    Quite honestly, Range and Damage pretty much are the same. Damage just makes mid-close range better throughout, so in practice, it's superior. Range just works decently on the USAS-12 (seems to work better than the other shotguns). Just see how your performance chances between each proficiency. However, if you're going Specialist, always do Damage of course.

    I really recommend not using Scavenger as a perk when using Specialist though, especially with a shotgun. Most guns have enough ammo for seven or eight kills, and whatever runs out before then, the job can be completed by your secondary (usually just one or two kills, unless your shots missed a lot or got a lot of hitmarkers). It's better to use the perk that actually effects the player's movements/performance (that's why I use Hardline, as the red perk tier is not necessary for shotguns, maybe except for Assassin, then I just get Sleight of Hand with just one kill).

    Stricker+damage+specialist bonus+Mission=impossible not to get a MOAB!

    The spas is also a monster with a specialist bonus. Once you get on a role, it seems like everyone dies in one shot, at some ridiculous ranges too.

    But what is it with the KSG? I hear a lot of people who like it, but I think its just awful. I have it gold w/damage, and even with an SB it still seems terrible. Maybe i just suck a using it. Its the only shotgun I haven't gotten a MOAB with.

    I'll try it.

    I prefer Quickdraw as my first perk, lets me get all super fast with my flash bangs, then I have Assassin in my specialist. Seems to be working fine.

    Its interesting, I start off with my gun, do some pwnage then all of a sudden the enemy team all start using shotguns.

    Welcome to the team. The USAS is beast but don't forget to give the others a chance too. AA-12 is my fav (how many people can honestly say that?)

    My AA-12 is autumn, now! But man i'll tell you, the range on that gun is just HORRIBLE. I mean you literally have to get right up to their chest for a one shot kill.

    USAS FTW, love this shotty, Dead Silence all day.

    Nothing better then coming around a corner and 3-4 enemy just spawning and Bam, Bam, bodies flying everywhere.

    Steady aim is the go until damage or range is opened.

    I love shotguns. The USAS-12 was the only gun in the game that I came close to getting Gold for.

    I just goldified the SPAS. Only one left to get is the *shiver* Striker. Gonna hate myself for using it, but I want to say I got all 6 done.

    Model was effing hard too but so worth it

    Striker and Model are both Autumn. I'll tell you, getting it to Damage is just horrific. After that it is semi-bareable. My USAS12 is gold.

    Model is a grind the whole way with no attachment challenges to help. I agree actually getting damage was a total b!tch, but made a helluva difference.

    Curious to try it with specialist and get damage AND range... doesn't seem like it'd be fair

    I just hate the fact that if you miss the first shot, your screwed. It sucks. And even sometimes you hit the target right on and nothing happens. Not even a hit marker...as if the pellets disappeared into thin air.

    Primary: USAS w/ Extended Mags
    Secondary: MP9 w/ Red Dot
    Tactical: Smoke
    Lethal: Frag
    Perk 1: SoH
    Perk 2: Hardline
    Perk 3: Steady Aim
    Assault Pointstreaks: UAV, IMS, AH-9

    No need for Extreme Conditioning because its coded into the weapon. Wouldn't recommend Quickdraw or Grip because you're more accurate with Steady Aim. Also wouldn't recommend Scavenger because if you rush with it like its intended, chances are you won't live long enough to use half of your ammo, hence the reason for Hardline.

    Try it out. My KDR with this setup, 2.08

    How successful are you with this set up? And if you claim "you won't live long enough to use half of your ammo", why run Assault?

    I dont use the USAS-12 anymore, but when I did I was top of my game. Always did really well. I came close to two MOABs, one was a 17 kill streak and one was a 20 that definitely would have been a MOAB but the game ended.

    USAS-12 Extended Mags
    --> W/ Damage or Range, depending on map
    Secondary: MP9 Silencer
    Lethal - Semtex
    Tactical - Flash Grenades...these help out a LOT
    P1: SoH
    P2: Quickdraw, for quick recover time from flash bang usage and to quickly ADS
    P3: Steady Aim, of course.
    Specialist: Assassin, Blind Eye and Scavenger.

    This class set up worked out incredible well for me. The flash grenades help me get my specialist perks then just a few kills and I have the specialist bonus. And from there...well...

    Shotguns don't belong in CoD.
