Why didn't anybody complain about the DMR back in Reach?

Its the same gun now as it was then, was commonly a starting weapon and if not usually pretty accessable. I may even remember it being better in that game..


Why all the hate for it now? Because people want the BR to be good because of Nostalgia purposes?

Or because everyone shares the same lone wolf playstyle and don't realize that its the best gun for that? While the AR and BR are intended for groups...

No, because it outclasses every starter gun there is. It's simply better when it should be balanced and have an advantage in one direction rather than everything.

It was ass in Reach.

In H4, it's imbalanced because it outclasses LITERALLY every other gun in the game, you have access from level 2, and EVERYONE starts with it because people have no taste, or interest in variety.

It's really a very forgiving and unskilled Sniper. Turning every match into some lame cross-map bull**** is just annoying every time I play H4.

reach only had 2 precision weapons. 4 has twice as many and there's really no reason to use the other ones now that loadouts are around.

Why are people having so much trouble aiming?

They are similar, yes. But like your girlfriend and your sister, someone is gonna be pissed if you mix them up.

actually if we are going to be technical about it the light rifle is the strongest rifle.

Significantly harder to use in CQC than the DMR though.

The problem isn't the gun. The problem is trying introduce multiple guns that have the same role with very insignificant differences between them. Additionally, the problem with cross map campfest fights isn't that you can start with the DMR. It's that the maps are poorly made and promote that kind of gameplay by having huge open areas and a small number of power positions that can see the entire map.
