Not a fan of them because they don’t proc well at all. Is it wrong to hate on them?
Even if it’s a top-tier elemental shotgun, it’s still a shotgun. Shotties have terrible tech properties across the board, they’ll look bad in comparison to the legendary Maliwan repeaters and SMGs.
If you’re expecting a Hellfire then you’re going to be disappointed, but a Crux/Plague has always melted things wonderfully for me. They’re my second preference right after Defilers.
I guess the 2/7 or so times it does proc is enough to melt things anyway.
Is it wrong to hate on them? In a word, yes.
