Hey, I'm a soldier main albeit a low level soldier main. There was a question asking the validity of shotgun pocket in 2017, and now 3 years months later with the meta now to abuse the shit out of medic buff speed for scout, I'm wondering if shotgun pocket is a still a viable option, I feel like shotty pocket is when you snort a nice line of cocaine at a party, even though you know this shit is bad you get that exhilarating rush, kind of like when you one man a team that one instance at that one time. So much so that you're willing to go out of your way to find a plug to spend 80 dollars on some cocaine. Discuss.

Shotgun soldier still destroys players as much as it always has, but with today's meta, the extra heals shotty pocket takes will almost always have more impact on your demo, scout, or having a 300 health jay-style combo roamer. Shotgun pocket isn't bad, but there's much better options.

tl;dr cocaine isn't worth it

to play shotgun pocket effectively you must first be able to tune out the high pitched whining noise that your scouts (and their scouts) will start making as soon as you equip it

jokes aside playing shotgun pocket with like 20-22% is completely doable you just have to be very good at using your health pool as efficiently as possible, mostly by having really good jumps and positioning.

every time a soldier pulls out a shotgun against me in a 1v1 I lose a year off my life

pencil jump; acquire meatshots

i think the best reason to run shotgun now is to solely piss off scout mains in 1v1s

The heals going to you take away from your demo and scouts and almost never provide a good benefit. At a low level you can definitely get away with it but it's not something you'd want to make habit.

the way rando put it was that gunboats was easier than sg but you had the potential to have more impact with sg if you played well nd i agree
