Quote:i love how everyone is like blah blah blah your doing it wrong umm your missing a whole lot of factors mainly the fact that precision weapons are just plain better i've only lost to an AR once and i was out of ammo because they feel the need to rush for the melee get a jetpack you will never lose to an AR again but the fact is the DMR is too strong so until its in balance you cant know truly whether it does or not and the fact that a pistol can 1sk from almost the same range is preposterous it needs something but not right now
Dude, punctuation. I'm serious.
As for this case, I disagree with both of you. The Assault Rifle has indeed changed since Halo:Reach, but you should be able to kill someone at close/mid-range if you're above average.
Now, don't take this as an insult, because I hate the AR too. The Suppressor and Storm Rifle are much better at close/mid-range than the AR, so I prefer those. But, like with the BR/DMR fights we recently had at the Halo Wiki, I think it's all a matter of preferences. The AR is more effective against flesh, while the Storm Rifle is effective against shields, and the Suppressor is effective against both.
I think I have made my point here. It's all a matter of preferences.
