Motorcycle + Shotgun: Why Can't We?

Ever since the previews for GTA IV started popping up and all of the news about being able to drop grenades and molotovs out of car windows, I started getting my hopes up about finally being able to use a shotgun while riding a bike. Don't get me wrong, I love the game, but this one little thing would have made this game even sicker. I guess I'll just have to wait for the next one (or maybe a patch) to live out my Terminator 2 fantasies.

how are u suppossed to fire it with one hand on the gun and the bike with the other? + the gun recoil and weight of the shotgun should fuck up ur steering and fall off

though i imagine one day there's going to be a modshop that modifies cars to conceal weapons under its hood and compartments, like James bond or spyhunter

Dude, I can't believe you're actually asking this.

Have you ever like, physically held a shotgun, let alone fired one?
You'd know you don't shoot a shotgun with one hand, unless it's a sawn-off.
And I'd love to see someone handle a sawn-off on a motorcycle - the recoil would send the bike into oversteer and kill the driver.

I dont see why we cant fire more weapon types from the passenger side. I know game ballance issues for Dm but it should be a game option IMHO.

Are you saying that firing a SMG with one hand on a motorcycle is not the same thing?

It would only prove frustrating if you couldn't fire the semi-autos from motorcycles.

Shotguns, though, are ridiculous.
