The pistol should not 3-4 shot across the map that's ridiculous...They should make it more like the Halo 3 one or H2A one...
Pistols should never be ran as a primary weapon...
Halo CE gets away with it because there is no BR or DMR
Pistol is a 5sk and is probably in its niche perfectly as far as the H5 sandbox goes,
Pro-AR users were -Yoinking!- and moaning about BR starts, so we got AR/Pistol starts
The pistol needs to be a weapon that you can defend yourself against automatics with a higher ROF higher damage output AND now zoom capabilities
The pistol is probably right where it should be, strong enough to defend yourself but still uselsss enough that you should pick up a BR or DMR or Carbine when you see one
If you nerf the pistol then you have to nerf all the autos as well
