Do people still die in one shot from the shotgun?

Just played 3 matches where I fired point blank and hit every pellet and got 90 to 99 percent at least a dozen times. The game wasnt like this a couple months ago and the sniper isnt overpowered anymore whats going on with this game?

You missed

This is Gears 5, so much can change in even just a couple of months.

Oh, apart from bugs and glitches. They tend to hang around.
