    It's an automatic weapon... that kills in 1 shot. It's cheap and overpowered, if not outright broken. The other 2 top weapons are beast, but still require a modicum of precision to use effectively. Hence why it's the weapon of choice of boosters and proxyspamspawncampers.

    It does have some disadvantages, sure. It has range limitations (but not that much, it has fantastic range for a shotgun), the reload is a bit slow(although, again it is one of the best for shotguns. Only the SLY might be a tad faster), and enemies can pick it up and use it's overpowered-ness against you (this is also true of other high level guns though, and hardly balances things out when you get it at every spawn and enemies have to look for it and leave themselves vulnerable when they stop to grab it).

    If they had made it semi-automatic only, fire rate of a pistol, it would still be great but just not so cheap. That's my opinion.

    Bad news my friend. Changing the mode to semi-automatic actually makes the gun MORE powerful. I can fire it semi just as fast as full auto, but with a LOT less muzzle action. This increases accuracy a LOT and spends much less ammo. Hopefully more people don't figure this out and continue to hold down the trigger and aim at the ceiling!

    oh...crap...wait a sec...

    Pistol semi-auto is 5/sec I think, full auto is 12/sec for Masterton. Instead of spraying across the screen, at least you'd have to aim.

    But you may be right. I always switch to semi-automatic when I grab someone's Masterton.

    Don't know 'bout Goldeneye's specific hipfire versus ADS metagame and such, but in the shooters I know of one does not simply spray 'n pray at every given encounter. If ADSing with a buckshot shotty decreases spread, then slowin' down one's fire to semi-auto, conserving ammo and gettin' easier one-shot kills should logically be the most effective strategy as Tamps claims (for players who ain't right-shit)... unless of course ya turn a corner and someone's got a barrel in your face. Everyone thinks shotguns are fantastic hipfire weapons, but in games where pellet spread notably decreases via aiming, that sentiment is far from the truth.

    Obviously a fully-automatic shotgun with an unbalanced damage-to-pellet ratio kind'a breaks that there rule of thumb, but 'ey. My point still stands: anyone who sprays their masty like a madman when they're at a mid-range is a dumb.
