Sawed-off Shotgun is ruining Gears 3 Multiplayer; Epic are you listening?

Gears of War 3 is one of the best games to have been released this gen, and we gave it a perfect 10 in our review. The multiplayer component is fantastic because of the dedicated servers and let’s be honest here, there will always be something that will crash your party.

Right now, people with Sawed-off Shotgun (SOS) are running rampant online; sometimes almost everyone in the team uses them. It’s bad because if a guy gets near you with a SOS; you are already dead (meme). The gun has an incredibly high reload time, but usually that doesn’t matter, as a guy can easily kill someone, run back and wait for you to come to him.

The counter to SOS is a Retro Lancer, but what will you do if a team of SOS users come charging at you? Nothing and this situation is extremely bad in King of the Hill, where the SOS completely dominates. The multiplayer is perfectly fine, except this. I have no idea how Epic let this in the game. The gun should be nerfed immediately.

Take a look at the video below to see what I mean. Isn’t it overpowered?

This is how you counter a Sawed-off user but this won’t work when two or more people come charging at you with the gun.

The Epic forums are full of SOS rants, and I hate it too. Have you encountered any problems with these people? Tell us in the comments section below.

    I agree with you. The SOS is so OP. just now i was playing on hotel and the whole other team wa using retros and sawed offs. I kepted getting flanked by the retro and the sawed off. If i leave cover i get shot to death. I can never win shotgun battles against the SOS. I use the lancer and the gnasher. I am not trying to sound cocking but i am good at gers of war. I usally go 13-2 8-2 23-10 and so on.i think epic tried to fix it by addin the old school game mode, problem is you can’t go on ranked. I cant wait for judgment because there is no retro and no SOS
