I hear "advanced mechanism" and my mind translates as "more difficult to field strip", "more parts/functions that can potentially jam/fail", and so forth. I'm fine with relaitvely simple designs.BroodGuitar3757 wrote:Always hoping to find some more advanced mechanism. Even Aliens they have more advanced firearms. I love the hydra laser and railgun there advanced and feel up to date but the other firearms have a near future feel. Its interesting many unsc ships have advanced weapons in the form or coilguns and bomb-pumped lasers and plasma spears even the airplanes have rapid fire coilguns and now we have gauss repeaters for most mechs a tank and airodrones but anything infantry still feels like todays stuff although the sniper rifle does use compressed gas instead of gun powder as thats what the halo 2 special edition manual saysJebsquared wrote:UNSC Firearms still operate largely the same as real firearms. The MA5 series even uses the ammunition as the M60 LMG. The propellant charge is likely more advanced, but otherwise they work like real firearms do.
That said, specialized weapon platforms for specialized roles typically are a bit more advanced. So, all in all, the representation of UNSC arsenal to me seems fairly well reasoned.
