The DMR is stupid in the way that 343 made the game. There is no incentive to ever push anymore because theres no weapons, not to mention that theres flinch in scope and an incredible amount of aim assist. --- Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.
The only reason you don't remember it being like this was because 3 had terrible spread on the BR that made long range hugely inconsistent, and Reach had terrible bloom that made the entire game inconsistent.
The problem isn't the DMR or the other precision weapons. The problem is the maps are poorly made and do not suit the gameplay. The only good map in this game is Haven. --- Perfection. Where everyone fails. If you expect nothing you can be happy for everything.
TC, you should be GLAD. 343 brought the assault rifle back to usable. Load up a firepower class with BR, AR, and the extra blast radius grenade upgrade and you'll feel your old halo back again, thank me later.
