A video has surfaced that displays the immense power of the shotgun in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, as it was able to take out VTOL Jets. As in other Call of Duty games, players in Modern Warfare 2 can gain killstreaks by maintaining a streak of kills without being killed themselves.

The killstreaks in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 are separated into different levels based on their effectiveness during a match. The most powerful killstreaks require a high number of kills in succession without dying. Among the useful killstreaks is the VTOL Jet, a favorite among many players. Yet, the recent addition of a shotgun to the game appears to be too powerful, as a video shows it shooting down VTOL Jets.

NitrokiddXxX, a Reddit user, posted a short video of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 footage from their match on Shipment. The clip, lasting nearly 40 seconds, exhibits NitrokiddXxX obliterating multiple VTOLs with the KV Broadside shotgun newly implemented in the game. Although it’s difficult to determine how much damage the VTOLs had taken prior to NitrokiddXxX’s shots, the shotgun appears to deliver a considerable amount of destruction to the killstreak, enough to destroy them without too much effort.

It’s worth noting that the KV Broadside shotgun was toned down in the Season 2 Reloaded update for Modern Warfare 2, so the video evidence most likely predates the patch. Nevertheless, this footage does a great job of illustrating why the weapon was thought to be too powerful, thereby justifying the nerfs it experienced in the Season 2 Reloaded patch.

In the comments section, gamers had a debate on if games needed realism to be enjoyable. There were some comments about the player using slug rounds for increased damage against vehicles. One individual questioned how NitrokiddXxX was able to stay alive long enough to destroy the VTOLs in Modern Warfare 2, considering the chaotic nature of the map Shipment.

Season 2 of Modern Warfare 2 included the KV Broadside shotgun, new modes and maps, and many other enhancements. Although Valderas Museum had been featured in the beta and Dome was a remake of an older map, Himmelmatt Expo was the first truly Modern Warfare 2 map released since launch.
