Instead of BR Team Slayer or DMR Team Slayer, i wish we had "Marksman [insert gamemode]" where we would choose which of the available marksman rifles (Depending on the Halo game: DMR, Carbine, Needle Rifle, Light Rifle, Battle Rifle all weapons which works for the same role) we spawn with. I'm pretty sure we'd get much more people using the covenant rifles with that. Back when i played Halo 3 and Reach i'd almost never get a game with covenant weapons as startup.Boomsheel7610 wrote:aw heck! i completely forget about the carbine and needle rifle sometimes. considering the carbine is my most desired weapon of choice! especially the satisfying sound the carbine made in H2DireIguana wrote:The Needle Rifle from Reach, which is also a marksman weapon, is also worth mentioning. Seeing your opponent's face explode into pink dust from needle accumulation is sheer satisfaction. Carbine was awesome, too. Having a variety of choices is best.
I probably prefer the DMR a tiny bit over the BR, though.
Never played 5 before, the last one I played was Halo 4 years ago. Having both would be pretty neat.BossJake PWNs wrote:They have both in 5 right? Been a while since I've played 5 as I don't have an Xbone anymore. Would be mad to have both in future games. DMR vs BR.
I remember really enjoying 5 tbh. Hoping that will make its way to PC properly too. Halo 5 Forge on PC isn't doing the game any justice.Never played 5 before, the last one I played was Halo 4 years ago. Having both would be pretty neat.BossJake PWNs wrote:They have both in 5 right?

I tend to go with the BR when I have a choice, but every once in a while I switch it up and use the DMR. I'm particularly fond of the DMR's in Halo 4 & 5 but that's largely due to the sound design. Listen to the DMR in Reach then the ones in 4 & 5 and you'll hear what I'm talking about. The guns may not be any more powerful, but they sure sound like it. (This is largely true with most of 343's sound design ... they tend to make everything sound huge, beefy, & crunchy. Their sound people do good work.)
It depends of the game.I don't like DMR compared to Magnum in H5 so I definitly prefer BR in this one cause he is more useful. But between H3 and Reach I must say I don't know. I think BR because H3 is my favorite of the franchise.
In my opinion Dmr is better. In halo reach it had a beautiful design and sound. In halo reach, 4 and 5 it change very much. In my opinion the most iconic is the reach version, but my favourite is the halo 4 version (with skin noble)
