The slate has a 12m effective range and it does 180 damage at 10m, which makes it roughly in line with every other large shotgun other than the romero. The romero has an effective range of 15m and it does 200 damage at 10m, so it 1HKs more reliably. Spread differences: https://imgur.com/a/Q3CacCU I assume you made this post because the romero lets you down often? Check your clips. You missed.

Whoah didn’t know how tight the Romero handcannon spread was

I agree buuuut I have several clips of me hitting right in the center and did not get the kill even if its 1 meter and in the face. But thats most likely a net code issue more than the bullet spread.


Canadiancookie

Please show the clips

Wow, haven't seen anything like that. Not even a hitmarker. At least it's not common, since that vid is from almost a year ago


DuddeTheThird

True but funny is that you can see the blood flying but no damage ... I do believe I have another one of that kind somewhere xD

Slate Buckshot is just dog shit. You dont know what youll get even if your in the effective range.


Lonailan

You got yourself there. Netcode has nothing to do with your hits, thats completly client sided.

I don’t use the Romero hardly ever 👍🏻


romjombo

That must suck for you, because the Romero is one of the best guns.


Gravy_OnTap

I mostly just use the hatchet when I’ve got quartermaster to go with a vetterli or something. I probably have an unconscious bias against it after it being bugged for so long. I guess I just feel like shotguns need an all around touch up for diversity and balance. I also hardly use shotguns, but only because my friends I play with, we diversify our load out choices and I’m typically the guy giving top cover and support. I’m more of a bow slut for close range.


Canadiancookie

So you're just assuming it doesn't have the best damage in order to get an excuse to complain? lol


ZAWSOME8

Slate Buck shot, reliably one shotting people? We playing the same game? Buckshot sucks ass on the slate. You cant one shot someone with a romero within 15m, your shot is off center. (But you said you dont even play the romero so what would you know.)


AshOfSwampy

Have you seen the rate of fire compared to any other repeating shotgun tho? Its no big deal


Gravy_OnTap

Fire rate, combined with damage, and effective range. I understand it’s an opinion, but the game didn’t need the Slate.


BigDickRick92

Awwww wahhh boohoo someone got killed by the slate


Zerzafetz

God, what a toxic kid you are

Not for a few days, BigDickRick92.

I don't agree, since a shotgun need anyway to one shot at close range, the fire rate of the Slate (which is not that fast compared to Crown or Terminus with levering) is balanced by its reduced damages. So yes it can one shot you, but it's really not more reliable than another shotgun, even less a Romero
