4 seconds off of AR!? Thank you! My Human Soldier will be pleased. Ive been doin some work on him lately with just the Wraith and using AR to refill the clip. 4 shots with 2 of them being almost twice as strong allows me to solo Brutes/Banshees no problem even on Gold with the Shredder and Smart Choke mods. Not quite as effective on Geth though aside from the Pyros.

what's the effect of the range reduction? does it affect their accuracy or just who they'll target if there are 2 or more players near them?

I think it means that centurions would like to get closer to you before they attack.
