Is mp just a shotgun fest? I played the beta and liked it, but it seemed everyone was only using shotguns. I'm a distance and assault rifle type of guy. Is there more weapons than the gnasher and lancer?

Gears MP has just about always been a shotgun fest. A bunch of dodge rollin, corner sliding shotgun bros trying to get cool clips to put on youtube. I avoid it like the plague.

There's good variety, but at its core a lot of shotguns are used, that's how it's always been. I like it, if you're totally against it then you'll dislike it I'm sure.

The problem is they put TO much cover in the game. Every 2 steps there is something to hide behind. You cant get a ranged kill unless you go for someone picking up a power weapon or you are using a power weapon. Close combat is all you really get in gears because there are 5000 things per map to hid behind.

Hammer burst or enforcer are pretty good

Wouldn't be so bad, if they allowed you to use the retro lancer. Not sure why they took that out as a starting weapon.

I played a good bit of Gears 3 and liked it, but it didn't seem to be all shotguns. I remember doing well with the lancer. When I played the beta for 4 it was nothing but shotguns.

Got 15 downs with enforcer, just keep downing them over and over and use as bait.
