The dao is ok, but the usas's ROF advantage just eats up the other semi auto shotguns, unless you're using slugs or want slightly lower spread for some reason. The DAO also takes an eternity to reload...
Too bad the DAO-12 doesn't live up to its legacy as a monster from BF2. It was a gosh darn golly gee whiz good gun in that game. The DAO is somewhat better than the other semi autos imo, but I feel the fire rate cap is set way too low on all of them. You need more than one shot past about ~4m most of the time, and far too often an AR can finish you before you get off the second shot.
I just miss BF2 style weapon balance, and damage model. I guess BF2142 also had a nice variation on it...
Well actually, the semi auto shotties were still serious contenders in BC2, don't know why they are so bad this time around.

because everyone complained about them in bc2 (well, atleast the loud people), DICE didn't want everyone yelling bloody murder over aa12's and USAS
I also find the spread on the semi shotguns to be a little bit rediculous- last time i touched one was before the first patch using the m1014, and i couldn't stand noticing half my pellets flying over the enemy's head and getting gunned down by an LMG at shotgun range- they should keep the spread tight and just lower the pellet damage, it's alot more realistic and alot less heartbreaking than shooting a broken lawn sprinkler
