Marines are fine easy kills in my opinions. Easy to sneak up on too.

That has not been my experience. I hope they don't get nerfed because then they would be completely useless.

I think they should be SLIGHTLY nerfed. Not nerfed to completely useless, though. But they should be nerfed to the point where you're not doomed if you're facing a couple on your own.
Here's why I think they're fine. You never have to fight more than one at a time. Step around a corner or down the stairs and dome the first one you see. If you're stepping out to where more than one has Line-of-Sight (LOS) at a time, you're doing something wrong and developing a bad habit, especially against other players.
If you take them one at a time, one headshots is all it takes.
And if I messed up and missed my headshot, I'll put them down with a few more shots and my shields will be drained. Luckily I was only being shot by one at a time and I can just step back and let my shields recharge before engaging again.
I think that the marines are perfect for what they were implemented to do. However, I don't agree with the fact that, without some kind of precision weapon, they can take about the same amount of firepower as what aa normal spartan player can take without flinching or anything. I mean half an AR mag seems a little much, doesn't it?...
One shot to the head and they're dead.
Yea they are just a skill test. Hit them in the head once and they are gone, if you let them live, then live and let yourself die.

They're only OP if the Spartans are also OP. Marines should be doing the same damage if they're using the same weapons . It's what always bugged me about the minions from Titanfall.
Thats makes sense, but their AIM is just a tad to good. Its better than half the teams spartans some times. But at the same time, I like it because at least it does slow down the enemy in taking a location back.
Yeah, take a ghost or warthog and drive under the fortress on March. Don't stay more than one second because it's all those marines need to ruin your day. Even a really fast drive by will leave you with your shield halfway gone.

I do love when they throw grenades. It's like watching my 3 year old throw a rock.
Makes up for the fact that a magnum or BR to the head is instant death for them.
Well I think only vehicle damage needs to be adjusted
The Marines in Warzone have more personality than Blue Team.
I hate when you are on the top of the enemy held garage circle and they spawn in and shoot you.

even more fun when people hide behind them or all 3 stand right next to each other.

pls nerf.

Also im not joking, that shtuff is annoying.
They are fine, all it takes is one br burst to the head and they are done for. If you are being killed by them you must be a reckless fool who thinks you can enter an enemy's fortified position without facing opposition.

they are so over powered i make sure not to drive any vehicle near the enemy base. they will consistently rip it to pieces. A Single Marine will destroy my ghost in seconds. Something that would take my AR 5 magazines worth of effort. Its also a ton of fun, if you dont have a precision weapon since they will gladly eat a magazine, or if the marines lag and eat the headshot. Cause yay, you thought your good aim would save you, nope GO ___ yourself, prepare to get slaughtered. Or pretend to be smart and shoot them before entering a base. sniping the one on the roof, a grenade on the first floor. You think its safe, but Nope, all 3 have respawned seconds after dying to give you a warm welcome and likely a random frag grenade they never threw. Youll be so glad when Tommy No Thumbs walks in and 1 shots you, then proceeds to spend 10 minutes trying to turn around on 1 sensitivity, walking into the wall trying to find the door after he completely out skilled you. Or my favorite, you thought you killed them all, but 1 random respawned even tho you are inside the building , though you dont know that because they dont show up on radar when they are admiring the sunset. even if they move its just a single red pixel of death waiting for you to trip over.
Hahaha. ^ This. So damn true. My problem isn't that they're OP. It's that they have perfect frickin aim, on top of the fact that they magically happen to be psychic. Trying to sneak up to the garage from the roof to get a kill in on the defender and try and take the base, nope 3 Marines just spotted you for the camper, revealed your position by shooting up, and if you don't have a BR at that range, forget about it because their ARs ARE BRs. And if the Marines don't get ya now that you don't have a shield (because your crouch doesn't seem to work on psychic marines), the camper will. But if by some miracle you off all the Marines, hurt the camper enough to dive in and get his one shot -Yoink-, gues what! You missed one marine that didn't show up on radar due to distance. Camper now has enough help to finish you.
Their grenades can one shot you so there's that.

I don't think the AI is good, per se. I think their weapon damage is just stupidly insane.
At any range too. They don't seem to suffer from damage or accuracy falloff is the problem, as my vehicles can attest to. Drive too close to the outside of a base and your shield gets shredded by perfectly aiming Marines. I literally fear them more than any promethean or elite boss at this point, and they have better aim than 75% of enemy Spartans.

They've clearly been given the betrayal buff. In previous Halo games if you killed too many Marines and had turn hostile their damage and accuracy was buffed insanely as punishment to the teamkilling.
yeah Ive been killed a few time now by those pesky AI. Im not mad though, I shouldnt have been slipping.
They are fine. I hate weak AI
Nope, they're fun as they are. I propose that as marines gather kills and vehicle destructions, they get promoted to Spartans with different weapons. Ultimately they become Hunters.
