I ran straight for the tank on the beginning of Kizingo Boulevard since you don't start with a headshot weapon after destroying the wraith behind you with the two rockets you're given.The Grunt 281 wrote:But it's still effective at breaking Brute armor.blitzkrieg51978 wrote:The assault rifle between Halo 3 and ODST actually got nerfed in damage against everything. Thus it became useless in shield stripping and even in close quarters, very noticeable on Legendary difficulty. The SMG however is more accurate and has better range, and has slightly better shield stripping power than the AR. Granted there's better weapons such as the plasma rifle/pistol but it gets a bit boring and I like to mix my playthroughs up a bit.
At the very beginning of Kizingo Boulevard I always need to combine the silenced SMG with frag grenades to kill the Brute on the left but I don't have trouble to shoot the Brutes near the other Wraith with an assault while I'm at the other side of the street.
EDIT : both Halopedia and Halo Nation says the assault rifle is 50% weaker, unless the A.I. is also 50% weaker in health and shield, it's false as it doesn't take a ton of bullets kill soft targets or armored Brutes (anything not a chieftain) .
Assuming you're trying to play the mission without touching vehicles and eliminating any enemy staying on the map, chances you easily run out of silenced SMG ammo.blitzkrieg51978 wrote:I ran straight for the tank on the beginning of Kizingo Boulevard since you don't start with a headshot weapon after destroying the wraith behind you with the two rockets you're given.
That’s because you’re using it wrong. Plasma pistol is to EMP and take out shields. That’s really all it’s good for, and that’s clearly the way it was meant to be used.Trigger Happy M wrote:Best weapon: Halo Reach human sniper rifle. You could tear through soldiers and vehicles alike. It could be used for any target.
Worst weapon: Halo 3 Plasma pistol. When you don't over charge it I think it takes 20+ shots to kill an unshielded player and the over charge shot itself does no damage to an unshielded player.
