Gotta be the beam rifle, that thing feels so good to fire in every game. Don't get me wrong, the Sniper is top shelf, but there's just something about the Beam Rifle's laser-like discharge and watching your opponent drop that sends the shivers down my spine.
Plenty of love for both weapons, but definitely prefer the UNSC SRS-99 AM sniper rifle. Maybe it's nostalgia, but the first time you get to hold one in CE on Truth and Reconciliation, and then that iconic sound as you fire it... it exudes power. The Beam rifle is a technological marvel, but that sniper rifle feels like a piece of art.
not 100% but im sure its bc it is more accurate since its a lance of light vs a conical bullet...+the sights are long giving a wider shot boxTofigh 09 TMT wrote:IDK why but i do WAYYY more better with the Beam Rifle fsr, like i'm more accurate and always farm the enemy team with the Beam Rifle compared to the Sniper Rifle fsr
Sniper rifle, just because you can use the whole magazine without any wait time. Having to reload is of course a drawback, but it's incredibly rare for me to get killed while reloading. If someone ambushes me or I get jumped while scoped in, I either get the snapshot on my first or second shot, or I'm usually dead.
How could I vote against the sniper rifle? 4 shots a clip with pinpoint accuracy is more than enogh to pick a hat off any elite. It's also quite the looker too, well, pretty consistently for the very least. Though Halo 2 beam rifle has pretty good look too.
The beam rifle has a faster rate of fire which is an advantage. Also, it is easier to no scope with a beam rifle. The sniper rifle on the other hand can fire two additional shots and is more precise that the beam rifle at range.
Aight so both are a 2 hit kill (1 shot to head), Im choosing beam rifle because of the double tap ability. You can get 2 shots off back to back securing the kill. The sniper rifle cant do that. Beam rifle cause of RoF.
It's a weapon I do only use for a single purpose in the Halo Reach campaign and that is to take down Fuel Rod Shade Turrets in the mission the Package and as a shield Elite shield drainer in the Courtyard. Other than that, I do never use it as it's damage output is a bit too low to be a truly effective weapon.Tripticon 343 wrote:Out of protest I must say the truth
