See no one can answer me the questions to prove that the pistol isn't over powered. But heres the issues. the pistol can in a lot of cases win a deal vs those three rifles and all the people standing up for this won't give reason. leading me to believe there is no reason and they just want an overpowered starting weapon.
So please Halo "pros" what's the point of the other rifles when the pistol can do so good?? let's see if you actually answer this time
Full team of BR users, versus full team of Magnum users... BRs win (skill removed as a variable)
If I have to explain this to you, it means you don't get it, and probably never will. But anyways...
Magnum is best used at short range
BR is best used at mid range
DMR is best used at long range
*A weapon is capable of hitting at ranges that exceed its purpose, but its usually more difficult to land shots.
**As long as any weapon is capable of a specific range, it is usually just as useful at shorter ranges than its max. Hence, why is a sniper is deadly at range, but at its best when used at long range, even more so against players without ranged weapons.
The Magnums intent, is create a intermediate weapon in the sandbox as compared to previous Halo Titles. The H5 magnum is not the useless H3 Magnum which served zero purpose in actual games because it wasn't a viable weapon, but its also not the power weapon it was in Halo CE. Instead, they've create a magnum that can keep you alive on spawn, but that will be traded upon finding a better skill weapon.
The AR cannot be compared to the magnum. The AR is for very short ranged encounters, and can still be contested by by skill weapons at that range. However, the more powerful close range weapons easily out duel skip weapons in close quarters.
