None of my real life friends give a ...., but I had to blab to someone that last night I found a shotgun that does 224x12 with a 12 round magazine (increased to 21 with my class mod and skill tree) and +3 projectiles fired. The fire rate is pretty slow, but it's hard to argue with 2688 damage from 4 projectiles per shot.
I also finally found a 300 damage assault rifle, and it actually has a decent fire rate and clip size.
Anyways, I had to get that out of my system. Sometimes it sucks being stoked when there's nobody to... um... be stoked... at.
