Why did they take away the Needles pink cloud of death
I'm not really sure what you mean by that could you explain more?

I think in halo ce (and maybe others) when you supercombine someone the animation of the explosion was a lot bigger and more vibrant
My guess is it was deemed unnecessary and/or too much of a distraction for competitive play. You can see a similar design choice with weapons like the Rocket Launcher.

Thank you for that and now that I think about it you're right it would be nice to see that again
Don’t know why, but being that the Needler is my fav weapon bc of it’s uniqueness I miss having that satisfaction of a pink cloud after a a combine of needles exploding.

If I had to take a guess I would say something technical along the lines of memory. Just think of 16 or even 24 players doing that all at once.
