Has anyone else noticed that the AI in Halo 2 can't dual wield? I first noticed this on Cairo Station when you need to kill the Elites guarding the bomb. One of the Elite Majors should be dual-wielding a Plasma Rifle and a Needler, but I never saw him. I thought that maybe I had killed him and not noticed. Then I played The Oracle. One of the Spec Ops Elites that you start the level with should be dual-wielding Plasma Rifles, but he only had one. This is when I really became convinced there was an issue. Finally, on the same level, when I fought the Heretic Leader, he and all of his holograms were not dual-wielding (they are supposed to dual-wield Plasma Rifles). This is clearly a problem, but I want to know if anyone else has experienced it. I also noticed a problem with the Covenant allied AI in that they sometimes have trouble following the player (i.e. they stand around in one area and either don't follow you at all or it takes a little convincing). As I just got an Xbox One and the MCC, I have only played up to Delta Halo. Please let me know if anyone else is having either of these issues and if they occur on other levels.
