For a picture, why not use the small stats panel of one of the various shotguns from Borderlands that literally have "0.0 accuracy"?

For example...

>Also, at this time, we would like to make a few corrections: Shotguns are actually not hilariously, stupidly inaccurate.


In fact shotguns in SWAT 4 ARE inaccurate. Their spread is wider than it should be.

Whats weird though is that the spread of the buckshot is equal to the PC's accuracy. Running will make the spread equal to most of the shotguns in COD, while crouching will reduce the spread to fairly realistic (for a realistic shotgun with a high spread). The slug shots, while in real life have a fairly good range, somehow have a shorter range then the buckshot rounds. Bean bag rounds are complete realistic in range though.

However, it feels as if both the buckshot and slug rounds are as powerful as a single bullet from a rifle. Ive hit enemies well near 3 times with a shotgun and they didn't die

Not sure if I should put this in the main article:

Played for laughs in a ep of red vs blue (chapter 8, season 7 (I think)). http://redvsblue.com/archive/?id=814 at 2.44.

Grif: (to Sarge) I imagine it can be pretty hard to be an ineffective leader with no respect.... Sarge: (Pulls trigger on shotgun) ((BLAM)) Grif:....who doesn't understand that his primary weapon has an effective range much shorter than most weapons.

OK, discussion time again. There's lots of aversions listed here, as well as a contrasting trope, 'Shotguns Are Just Better' Shouldn't we use that one for when a shotgun works like a ('real') shotgun, and wipe the normal aversions from here?
