obviously on legendary in game humans suck when shields are up and take like a billion shots in game.. but in the books its different.. How fair does it take for weapons to kill crap in the halo book universe?

I haven't read the books personally, but Halo Wars has really nice cutscenes that I think do a fine job of demonstrating (minus stupidity of spear wielding elites).

Skip to 20:40 for the action or watch the whole thing if you want, it makes me believe they could make a really good movie if they tried.

yes they do. three assault rifle rounds penetrated a Spec-Ops elite's shields and deformed his shoulder.

The Covenent weaponry is the stuff that's the most drastically different in the lore/books from how it is in the games. One or two plasma bolts from the plasma pistol or rifle easily kills a marine.
