Think twice before reloading the shotgun 870

There is one annoying thing about reloading the shotgun Remington 870 (not tried the other shotguns): once you push the key "R", you can not stop reloading until the shotgun is full.

Therefore you are helpless for a few seconds. To my mind, pushing "R" again should stop it.

Well, you can break the reloading process if you shoot (from hip).
This is the only action that can interrupt the loading of 870.

Any other known method?

Only reload once you know you are 100% safe?

run into the fray, kill 7 enemies with 7 shells, run back, be sure your teammates are around you, otherwise switch to your handgun if enemies start pursuing you, reload shotgun in safety, run into the fray again, ????, profit

I do not see a problem you can stop reloading by firing it.

Not by firing it.
By hip-firing; you can not aim.

That's why I prefer the M1404. You can load shells and still fire in between complete reloads.

Who the heck bothers to aim a shotgun? Just hip-fire and enjoy the headshot bonus.

why is that a problem? unless you're using slugs, which aren't all that effective anyway

The 870 is atrocious, even on cqc maps it's mostly pointless to run the 870.

Save yourself the rage and just stop running shot guns.

The 870MCS is the best shotgun, IMO.

I use ACOG 4x, Extended mags and Slugs. SO EFFECTIVE.

You should think twice before reloading any weapon if you know how much you have left in the clip

I quite like the 870, I just hip fire up close and hope for the best. Its pretty good using it like that. I wouldn't recommend it any other way.
