Trying to figure out which MAX left hand weapon isn't a shotgun. looked through the wikia and only saw like 6 weapons and they were all shotguns, was pretty sure there were more choices. Are any of them a minigun or anything but a shotgun, just doesn't work for my playstyle. With the low mag and long reload times.
The NC faction weapons for maxes are all shotguns or variants of the shotgun. That is just how NC maxes are designed to be indoor/ close range clearing monsters. There are variants of the shotgun that have longer ranges like the Mattock, but are still easily outranged by TR or VS Maxes.
an NC max will always win close range battles though... so take that as you will.
