Anyone else a bit disappointed by the charged attack on the new shotgun?

I'm having a hard time seeing this be as useful as I had potentially imagined on high level GW maps. I was hoping it would contain the normal shotgun blast with a special target that would be stunned based on which zombie you target.

    Yeah, not how I imagined it. It will still be useful for GW and with Sasha. Just needs some getting used to how to move and fire with it.

    That would've been great, but exactly as expected.

    I was hoping you’d be able to aim at the floor like a decimator but suppose that’s wishful thinking.

    It seems to me its charged attack will be like the pickle jar with different sound effect.

    it could have an extra attack after the charged attack like the harpoon, then it would be a great weapon i think

    I just wish the radius would work around corners and behind bulletproof like Decimator, other than that I am happy with it

    Think it could come in handy sometimes, I won't upgrade piercing and only use with Sasha 😉

    What are the best weapons/gear for hunters? And shooters/assault? I’ve tried searching threads but I only see for melee heroes

    @vabuda1
    For hunters the harpoon gun, festive shotty and incendiary rifle.
    For assaults golden assault rifle and decimator. 
    For shooters winter bow and flare gun.

    There’s value in an area stun charge in the hunter class. At minimum, it replaces buckshot shotgun as my #2 shotty behind festive on non-fatty maps. It was effective on level 20 of this week’s Distance.

    Damn! I never thought of that, but I'm glad I read this in time. Deserves it's own thread I think. I think you lose 600 weapon damage or something.

    I have to disagree a little @JayZ

    I used it on the previous challenge with RGG lead and with Sasha. Started charged a few times and once I was in range I stunned the hunter freemen. Worked a treat right up to 50

    I think this would work well in a few missions off the top of my head. But anything with a Threat count I won’t be using the Shotguns. 
    Maybe the Festive Shotgun in Overwatch to help light them up. 
    But I definitely see use in the weapon and will be using it. Rick Lead with Sasha in 3rd could pack a little extra punch as well. 
    The only change I would of made is having it fire where you choose on the charge like the Decimator. So you don’t have to target a walker
