Quote:If I have one complaint about the H4 weapons it is their lack of unique features or skill requirements. Some weapons like the splaser, railgun and boltshot require charging -- which is cool -- but that's as exotic as the weapons sandbox gets.
Definitely agree. I don't feel like Halo 4's weapons were that creative.
Light Rifle ≈ Battle Rifle
Suppressor ≈ Storm Rifle ≈ Assault Rifle
Incineration Cannon ≈ Rocket Launcher
Railgun ≈ Spartan Laser
Quote:Grenade Launcher: Hold the trigger until you're ready; release to detonate. Projectile bounced. Projectile killed. Projectile had EMP properties. Versatile against Spartans and Vehicles, but you were committed to the kill/EMP. You were vulnerable for as long as you held that trigger. Also, made Rocket Hog Race so much fun for the person riding shotgun.
The Sticky Detonator is fun, but very difficult to kill with and not as fun as the Grenade Launcher. IMO, the Grenade Launcher is the most fun-to-use gun in any Halo ever.
Quote:Focus Rifle/Binary Rifle: Very powerful sniper weapons that are offset by their glaring obviousness. Use sparingly and wisely because everyone on the map will know where you're perched. Great trade off of power and vulnerability.
Binary Rifle feels OP due to lack of descope. It's almost impossible to take down a Binary Rifle user unless he can't aim. However, with descope, it would be a pretty awesome gun.
