I voted average with this one. I do like the gun, it's just that for some reason I cannot get the accuracy with it that I would like. I have the engraved one, but I think it is the gun that showed up in my inventory after purchasing 5000 em$ one time quite a while back.

This shotgun requires more aiming low than the others. It took me the longest time to reliably shoot airborne birds.
Two bullets are better than one, but worse than six. 8-)

Rated "Average"

This shotgun falls probably a little short in performance compared to the other shotguns (besides the single shot).
I agree with HooCairs that it needs a wee bit more learning to master, and the barrel bundle occupies more of the field of view making it a bit more difficult to aim especially at targets moving up or away.

However, it is my gun to go for when aiming for the "close combat situation" with dangerous animals. Two slugs fired in super-quick succession at an attacking moose give not only a very satisfying feeling but are also very effective. ON close distances it offers the feel of a classic double rifle and makes me crane for one to be added to the game.

Mixed feelings. I use it a lot since it is required by the comps that I usually do.
Aiming is a bit tricky, other than that I have no complains. Good reload time, 2 quick shots.
I don't think I'd take it for anything other than birds though.

I got this gun during a special sale earlier in the year for the Engraved edition. It is a beautiful gun. I recently had to use it for some comp or mission and did better than expected, I seemed to have a little better natural feel for it than I do with the F3 which is weird because it blocks more FOV than all the others. It's fun for turkey, or instant double slug shots on pigs eliminates any tracking.
It's one you could live without, doesn't do anything differently than any of the others.
