Swat is why I play Halo. Imo, it's the only mode where things are even. That being said, halo 5 swat pisses me off. 70-80% of my gameplay is with the magnum. Back in the day, the magnum was the exception, not the rule. The distance afforded by the br or dmr make the game fun in the same way the sniper rifle makes things fun. Distance isn't a bad thing.
I think there are issues with hit count with the mag, too. I think we all miss old school swat.
Thank you for listening! We appreciate your doing so.
