Single Shotgun stuff
Single Shotgun is the most powerful long-distance no-lag weapon. There are a few situations when you will want to trade off your powerful and comfy supershotgun for a single shotgun (but then, it is wise to trade back to it if things are about to suddenly turn close-up). The single shotgun's strength is realized in its fullest when you deliberately place yourself at long range (which makes the other weapons less effective for varying reasons, including chaingun because of its usually splayed bullet pattern), and attack accurately. The pattern of the single shotgun holds its integrity well at long range, making a little horizontal line of shot. You can practice this on the single pillar in either the Basic Agility and Circle-Strafe Area, or on the single pillar in the SSG and Sg Specific Handling Area.
A note about Single Shotgun Vs. Chaingun
Single shotgun is the greater long-range weapon, chaingun can be more effective at medium range. It can be hard to keep a long-range battle from turning into a meduim-range one, so, this principle is good to keep in mind in such battles.
