How are some guns great in the campaign but awful in MP?

Exs:
Suppressor
Scattershot
Carbine

And also, what happened to the other brute weapons in the multiplayer, and the brutes in single player? I don't remember anything from Glasslands about brutes, but they were a great addition to the game and should have made a return.

They warred themselves to near-extinction. I don't think they're even capable of spacefaring anymore.

Well this and also the covenant found in the game are part of some splinter group. And with the Elites being the leaders of the group, I sort of doubt they would allow Brutes in it after the whole getting replaced by them fiasco by the prophets.

The carbine is uber in multiplayer. Mid range range is where its the champ. It can fight effective up close and is rather poor far away.

The AI functions differently than a human player. It will use different tactics which make it more vulnerable, such as burst fire, pacing shots, and not using cover very frequently.

As far as I know, the Carbine has the same killtime as the DMR, it's much weaker on vehicles, gets less ammo and has no inaccuracy at long range whatsoever, an advantage not shared by the DMR.
So there's no reason I can see that it would be worse or better at any range unless you're fighting a DMR/BR at long range.
What's your rationale for this?

The Scattershot is still powerful in the MP.

The Carbine also isn't awful. It's just overlooked by a good chunk of the community because the damage is low. It still has a high rate of fire and excellent accuracy though.

You need to lower your shot speed considerably to get shots on head at great distances with the carbine.
