I wondered that myself. Why there wasn't a Silencer on the shotgun. Or, why it didn't have a Red Dot Sight instead. It's a shotgun that fires pellents instead of slugs. It doesn't need a scope if it's not firing slugs. The point of a shotgun is "aim in the general direction". It's meant for wide angles of fire. It's not meant to be pinpoint accurate. The point of a shotgun is to fill as much space in front of you as possible with as many projectiles as possible. This is why it's a "close range" weapon.
I always question why game programmers let you put scopes or sights on a shotgun when there's no option to change to "slugs". What is the freakin' point of the sights if you can only ever fire the pellets? Call of Duty is freakin' fond of that as well.
It annoys me to no end.
