"AW CRAP! The enemy has a floating turret!!!!? Let me stay clear of HIM!

Was this 343's initial thoughts as to how the turret would prove an effective AA? Cause even defensively its lacking.

And for single player...why not just limit it to single player? They limited bubble shield in Reach to invasion etc, so....why? Please explain what makes competitive/ supportive in MM?

I assumed during testing the nerfed the hell out of it, cause I would think in organized play, if a team of 4 or more popped one at the same time it was devastating.

In it's current state, I feel like 343 said "**** it, it's good enoug for now, we got Halo 5 and 6 to get this **** right."

Its not super powerful, but its added shots on a target and one more radar blip. Can turn a "man, i was a second away from winning" into a win. Plus you can be totally behind cover, and spawn it above and past cover. Fun fact about it.

That being said, I think its relatively ineffective compared to the other AA's and don't use it. But it does have uses, and I suppose some playstyles can make it work.

If my friends ans I are dominating we switch to it to troll....having 4 sentry is lolz if one guy pops around the corner and gets shot by all of it.

I've gotten a few lol kills with it

and it's much more useful in game modes like CTF...put it near the flag

It's fun to play around with, and sort of effective in specific spots, like the ends of hallways. It feels impractical, but I think it'd be too strong if it were much better.
