Lets face it guys, the BR is an overpowered powerhouse when it really shouldn't, a 4 shot kill weapon is to OP for a default weapon you get at spawn, it takes little to no skill to use and people can just camp at their spawn and pick people off, if I wanted something like that, why not start people off with a Sniper Rifle instead, its pretty much what the BR is at this point.
Its only fair to post something like this since so many people here complain how OP the AR is and how it requires no skill what so ever to use, so what do you say guys, Nerf the BR?
Edit: The BR should receive a nerf where its damage really depends on the distance, you get closer and it becomes weaker, forcing players to keep their distance with a Marksman Rifle like the DMR and BR
Edit#2: Apparently K/D factors into ones opinion, here's the thing, the K/D system has been ruined by one simple thing, the farmed kills for Achilles, anyone on the bad end of the farming will have -Yoink- K/D by the end of all that like I do, but when you go out and say a weapon needs a good nerfing, people look into your service record and judge you based on that K/D when in reality, its a flawed system to begin with, a ton of reasons could explain how someone has a high or low K/D, either someone exploited a glitch and destroyed someone, or someone was utterly destroyed by the person using said glitch or whatever and their K/D falling because of it.
Edit#3: I'm not complaining about the weapon because I'm bad at the game...that's what everyone needs to realize, I know I'm bad, if my K/D was anything more then -Yoink-, I'd have so many people agreeing with me on what I've said, but since I don't, everyone is talking -Yoink- and saying I need to get good at the game...like I said before, this site has a pecking order that's just sickening, anyone lower then 1.0 K/D doesn't get to voice and opinion on here, and when they do, everyone jumps on them and kicks the -Yoink- out of them for speaking out of line.
This whole community is like that, we have people backstabbing and cheating for some stupid armor, we have kids talking -Yoink- towards bad players instead of -Yoinking!- helping them and we as a community claim we're better then everyone else...I can literally go to a Call of Duty forum and say I'm a bad player and a bunch of people would come to my side and teach me the ropes, I say it here and everyone tells me to git gud and then the thread is locked.
banned for voicing an opinion.
Considering the BR has been a 4 shot kill since halo 2...nurfing it now would be a terrible idea. A four shot kill with the BR isn't OP either. Getting the 4 shot kill isn't something every1 can do, and it isn't done every time someone is getting shot at by a BR. The battle rifle is the skill gun that separates the PROS from the SCRUBS who can't aim the dang gun. The BR is what makes Halo the competitive game! It's accurate, it's strong and has a little range. If you can't aim it, your not good. Yeah it isn't all about K/D, but Halo is all about AIMING FOR THE HEAD (ACCURACY) which = SKILL. If you don't like it, go play COD where you can spray and pray and kill kids in 2 shots and be praised for it. Halo is the only game where aiming for the head and not missing shots matters, it takes more skill.
Also, if you can't get out of the spawn because someone is better than you with the BR...don't be mad at the game, be mad at yourself for not being able to figure out how to get out of your situation. The game isn't the problem. lets be honest.
Last thing, make the BR the main weapon again at start so the game praises those who are accurate and those who are not. This isn't halo 3 anymore, the AR isn't going to be the all powerful equalizer like it shouldn't be. The BR is that weapon, and unfortunately now it is the all powerful pistol in H5.
