    So as i always play cqb. And i need the best loadout i can think of. So I just want to know is shotgun(multishot) better than an aeg? or the other way round? For both loadout, i'll have a pistol.

    Well, AEGs have the advantage of fully automatic fire and even if you only can shoot in semi-automatice mode, you still do not need to rack the slide every time, so yes, an AEG is always better.

    AEG's hands down. While a shotgun can be used it's not as effective as a AEG would be.

    In CQB situations depending on where you play the pistol will be even more effective then a shotgun or aeg. A good GBB pistol is more manerivable and easier to use in a close engagement distance. But if you really want go with the aeg, your way more accurate and can put more rounds down range then a shotgun.

    the only advantage shotguns have over AEGs is the fact that when you pull the trigger there's action, where as typical AEGs have to wind gears to complete a shot.

    So if you're The Flash or have well above average reaction speed, shotguns are great. For most mere mortals, shotguns in airsoft are mostly there for that tacti-cool experience.

    I rush everything I play. But why do people like using shotguns when most of you guys think aegs are better? Or should I get a shotgun and hang on my back?

    Because they're cool. The cocking sound is intimidating, they're often cheap. Gas shotguns have a very nice bang.

    In short, tacti-cool-ness. Judo-chop!

    If you want you can... They arn't that exspensive. Not a bad idea to have just to mess around with either. It's fun using different weapons.

    Yea... Inexpensive. Can get a multishot shotgun for 30 bucks. Good to live in hong kong. Airsoft guns are so cheap compared to the us.

    I use an mp7 for cqb. Although my shotgun packs a punch it doesnt have the right amount of range i like to have.
