I feel its outclassed at everything. Only thing is has going for it is projectile speed.
That's why we have one. Fires quicker than the Splaser, moves faster than the Rocket. It's pretty easy to score a hit with as well. It's more of a way to land hard hits against a vehicle while staying somewhat hidden.
because halo is a "weapons with character" game. some halo fans dont even realize it. call of duty has a crapload of weapons. but if its a rifle with a red dot, my k/d goes unaffected because all the weapons do similar damage with similar accuracy and reload times. each weapon in halo is supposed to play distinct. given their options are limited by story as well, they need to put as many fresh weapons as possible. the rocket should be excluded from comparison since its covenant brother is the fusion. there was no human version of the spartan. class dismissed lol
