Yeah I just re-tested. The slug drop is actually incredibly aggressive. The drop-off begins at 50m and drops faster than any assault rifle or SMG I've used, hence my assertions.

I love the 870 though, and I'm not sure why. I've been using it over any of the Support LMGs to level my Support up to the first service star. It's just incredibly fun and satisfying to use.

O and I check out his stats on battlelog and he averages 1600k a minute and reached rank 30 in 8 hours, lol for me to get to 45 for my val took me 80...

It took me that long too and the VAL was a major disappointment. Maybe it's better after fore grip and better sights?

As usual, I don't know what you people are whining about, I'm having no trouble with BF3, Running at HIGH 30+ FPS.

Other than when i had to edit the registry to remove the (tm)s from the bf3 titles, had to reset my GPU's OC because BF3 deemed it "Unstable".

But after i formatted and re-installed it, I had no problems at all, didn't even have to regedit anything at all.

I had to start using Chrome because battlelog wouldn't work with waterfox.

What message are you getting?

After spending time unlocking the first service stars for the 870 MCS and M1014, I can report the following:
1. The 870 MCS is grossly superior to the M1014 in every way, with all types of ammo. Do not bother with the M1014.
a. M1014 has lower damage at all ranges with buckshot, flak, frags and slugs.
b. M1014 has lower accuracy at all ranges with buckshot, flak, frags and slugs.
c. M1014 has a slightly lower recoil and slightly higher ROF than the 870, but this isn't enough to make up for how far it falls behind in a and b.
d. M1014 frequently needs more than 1 shot to kill at "melee" range, which is unacceptable for a shotgun.
2. Slugs are not what they used to be in BC2.
a. Accuracy drops off quickly after 50m. IRNV and ACOG are strangely ineffective.
b. Frequently needs 3-4 body shots at range to kill, or 2 headshots.
c. The YouTube video posted earlier with the Swedish dude is no longer valid. Good luck hitting anything with even an ACOG attached, let alone a 7x or ballistic. See a and b.
3. Don't bother with these two shotguns.
a. That said, the 870 MCS + slugs is a really good weapon at mid-range. At long and melee range, you're screwed. It doesn't have the versatility of the rifles.
4. USAS-12 + frags is still overpowered.

Honestly I think the 870 is the best shotty till the USAS-12, also 4 is so true... Im using it myself and it's stupidly effective although you run out of ammo fast.

One thing I really dislike about this game: choppers are so weak now. In BC2 helicopters were one of the strongest and most powerful assets of battle....now in BF3 the choppers are so weak, attributed to how easy they are to take down, lack of manuverability, and how stinger missles are so easily accessbile now. Why couldn't DICE stick with the traditional way of doing things, where one would have to paint the target with a tracer to take it down?

Some things are just too balanced IMO. Choppers/jets for instance. I had one strafing run to to give my squad some air support with the Little bird, after dropping them off at E on Damavand Peak. Three guys on the russian team lined up perfectly for a strafing run, and they were on the verge of flanking my guys. So i'm picturing a good quick run and then go back up and continue identifying units for my guys. Well it takes damn near the entire length of my run to kill one guy. frown.gif

I want bombs back and A10 in conquest.
