The witch is too weak

Hi, Just saying this: Ever since I started crowning her (which is when I started using a shotgun at all) I found that the witch is too weak! Even though I can't kill her in one shot I usualy shoot a whole mag into her (idk what a shotgun's "mag" is called XD) So she still dies.

This is kind of sad because unless I miss I don't get hit which makes it a bit boring. Hard rain which used to be a pain is basically target practice at this point.

Anyone knows how I could get more challenge from the witch? (for some reason ever since I started using the shotgun I only use that unless there's only the tier one shotguns)

Try the Witch on our server. Insta death if you fail to Cr0wn and T1 won't cut it.

In vanilla she's more of a distraction than a threat.

lol ok and yeah I used to be freaked out but that was when I used machine guns all the time (I enjoyed spraying since my aim was bad) now though I mostly melee or use dual since I carry a tier two shotgun for withces (yeah I'll do most of a campaign with a shotgun without using it XD kindda dumb)

And I guess I'll try your server eventualy, And once I trained SI enough I might ask you to join a versus game with you, I recall your a vs player.

Vanilla Witch: "Oops, someone shot her, just empty a few rounds in her general direction. Yup she's dead."

Realism VS Witch: "Ugh, I told you we should have lit her on fire, but NOooo you had to rush in with a pump shotgun .... GJ."

lol I never take on a witch with a tier 1 shotgun. Always with combat shotgun or tactical shotgun (that's the one with rapid fire right?)

I have played 2 games RVS after they made witch ungrownable.
Both games i died after trying to grown her, becouse my friends told me:
"she is back the way she use to be"...
I wont belive it anymore, before i read it on game update news...

@Nigeki
You can take her down with t1 shotgun so easy.
If not first shot, then second.
She is just too slow...

I know but I fail at crowning, I actually need 3 to 7 shots to kill her and I carry on untill I need to reload as good measure (unloads rather quickly with the auto-shotty) Although it does make her incredibly weak I mean I stand barely out of her arm's reach in front of her and I get to kill her before she gets me.

I just like rapid fire since I tend to freak out and look around thus screwing up my aim so I wanna get my next shot quickly (I usualy fail when I try to melee out of panic or when I run out of bullets cuz I forgot to reload before attacking her)

Walk so close to her that you cant move any closer.
Then shoot.
Allways one shot kill if you are just enough close, and hit somewhere between head and pelvis..

yeah but because of when i first played (on Xbox 360) and gameplays. her crying and general appearance scares the living carp out of me (misspelled on purpose) So if she actually turns to look towards me I freak out, shoot while backing up and to me she rarely has her back to just a flat field and usualy it's turned to obstacles so I'm stuck and I miss over and over and get cought. soometimes not though but it still freaks me out

Her cry still invades my nightmares and after playing too much it's one of the two things I keep hearing even once the game is turned off. The other being the tank's music XD
