HOW TO GET THE SHOTGUN RANK | RANKING SYSTEM EXPLAINEDPosted:

As BO2 has recently been made backwards compatible, I decided to conclude the zombies ranking system mystery. As a bit of background information, I currently have 5 accounts with the shotgun rank, including my main account. A lot of people believed that it was about K/D, this is not true, although a high K/D can be a byproduct of the actual method to obtain those desired shotguns. The system is measured by your downs per round, or how many times you go down on a certain round. Generally, if you are hitting the high rounds, your kills will be high, which is why so many people ensured it was K/D. Proof that it's not K/D is TheRelaxingEnd, who managed to achieve shotguns with no kills.

So, with all this in mind, how the hell do I get them? For shotguns, you want to be hitting an average of 40-50 with 1 -2 downs. Now here's the catch, as some of you may have been playing on your account for years, and had no idea your downs affected rank, it means your dream of shotguns may be obsolete. This may mean you have to create a new account, please remember you can't get shotguns with 1 game on your account. For shotguns, I would say you need to hit 40-50 with 1 down, for about 35-50 games, this should be enough to complete your goal.
But I've been using my account for ages and want the rank on my main account? If this is the case you can try and consistently hit high rounds and see if your rank changes. If not then you may have to result into exploiting glitches to get rounds like 80-100+. Obviously I don't advise cheating, but I do feel there is some unfairness is the ranking system.

If you have any questions please comment down below.
Thank you

Can't believe people still believe the ranking system is down to K/D when RelaxingEnd proved this.
Average rounds divided by average downs. (Can't work that out via combat record)

You want to avoid downs on lower rounds. It doesn't matter how many downs you get on high rounds.

This is coming from a guy who's had shotguns since the start.

If you actually read the post properly you'd realise that's exactly what I said throughout. And even stated K/D has nothing to do with it... read before you comment next time

Its pretty much certain that you get shotgun ranks by K/D(Kills/Down's), but i think consistent play is also a factor, ive gotten shotguns by playing orgins for weeks and probably making it to around round 30, and ending with the easter egg with about 3-4 downs at most.

being bad and then playing orgins fixed my K/D thus earning shotguns, now my friend who also played, same skill, id say hes even better then me, did not get shotguns when we played during that time, there was a time he went afk, and we would boost the secret perk (quick revive) and he got 100 downs in a game.

and i guess that caught up to him, because hes never had shotguns.

Now when i say constant play, my main (which had 200k+ kills/6k downs) got perma banned (bad modder don't ask) i made a new account, and id say i had about 20k kills/100 downs 20k:100 ratio, which means i should have shotguns correct?, nah didn't because i only had about a week played. then after i played around for another week or so, i randomly got it.

Tl;dr, Kills/downs ratio has a part when it comes to shotguns, but also time played.

Ive gotten shotguns on 20+ accounts so this has to be true. KD is not a factor in getting shotguns whatsoever.
