yeah that one is pretty bad. I meant the most annoying gun though. As in reach people liked to to use armor lock and crouch walk with invis with shotguns, or charge with the AR and melee. In Halo 3 people liked to use the mauler. I'd say people still like to do the noob combo with the plasma pistol, but the bolt shot seems to be a pretty popular choice this game.


What is this "noob combo"? Dropping someone's shields with a PP then blasting them in the face with BR/DMR?


Yeah, it was called the n00b combo in Halo 2 originally because you could dual wield the Plasma Pistol and the Magnum for quick 2 shot kills, especially since you could just run around with a fully charged PP the entire time.

It's carried over in different variations. It's actually pretty limited now as you have to charge, basically, right before you know you're going into combat otherwise you waste half of your energy for the weapon, plus you have to swap weapons to pick up that head shot. Not so much of a n00b combo anymore, but it's still a cheap kill.


Fair enough. For the record, I think it's a pretty badazz kill in Halo 4. Thanks for the enlightenment.

I admit, I'm rolling around with a DMR and PP on my main Loadout right now, makes getting assists easy as hell.

Storm (marshmallow bullets only good for taking out shields) or Carbine (weak compared to DMR/BR/LR).

TC, the actual worst gun in the game is the suppressor.


It's actually very good at taking people out close range.


Carbine has a faster kill rate than all of that, but only if you land every shot, and AR beats Suppressor most every time.


Making it bad against people who strafe.
The Suppressor drops people faster than the AR from very close range.

At whatever range you think the Suppressor kills faster, I guarantee you'd be better off meleeing. The Supressor is garbage dude.

my only beef with the bolt shot is that it has more OHK range than the scattergun

The DMR. Only because it has so much aim assist. Well i know not aim assist, but the hit reticle is actually much bigger than what appears on your screen. therefore, you can have only the edge of the `invisible` reticle on their head or chin and it will head shot them. the center could not even be aimed on the spartan. That is how hitscan weapons work.


I think you've confused "hitscan" with "aim assist" there buddy. Now back down before you make yourself look even stupider.
