Giving the DMR bloom like it had in Reach would making it so inferior to the other utility weapons that even an unscoped light rifle could beat it outside of extreme close range. That is a terrible idea.

The DMR is perfect as it is. It has no weaknesses other than the fact that it isn't a power weapon, which is what we need. A utility weapon like the DMR means that power weapons are not guaranteed to make the wielder win battles, and utility vs utility battles will not be slow. Going back to Halo 3 after playing zero bloom Reach or 4 shows just how painful it is to play Halo with slowed down gameplay. We do NOT need to slow down the game any more. Weakening the DMR is the easy option, but strengthening the other rifles is the wiser option.


This guy gets it.

Obviously he does because he's so smart.

IMO it has the edge over other weapons

also, IF the light rifle has no hitscan, WTF? it shoots LIGHT, how can it not hit instantly.


I agree that the dmr could use a nerf. Tooooooo many people rely on it. It's just too easy to kick back with a ally in a spot and scope, hoping to get that occasional one shot kill on a player whose shield is down. It's the same deal nearly every match, which is killing the game for me.

the DMR is a fine weapon the way it is for the most part. the only thing. i would change on it is the aim-assist range when youre NOT SCOPED IN. imo the aim assist range when your scoped in is perfect, but when your not scoped in, you get aim assist at an extreamly long range.

example: on a map like haven, with the DMR, you will get aim assist with the DMR from red/blue ramp to top mid. with a BR, you wont. it makes DMR vs BR battles to easy to win if youre using thr DMR because you can stay unscoped with the DMR at that range and still get aim-assist. As where you will need to scope in the the BR to get aim-assist, giving you flinch because youre scoped in.

thats really about my only gripe with the DMR. and that alone makes people think its to easy to 5 shot with the DMR. Decrease the unscoped aim assist range with the DMR, i think the BR would have the edge over the DMR

or maybe even.. 4 SHOT!!!

Ok, you are right, slower gameplay would be bad. bloom would suck too. I saw what 343 is testing, and I like the way that it is going.

Nerfing the DMR will only serve to slow the gameplay down. Buff the other utility weapons so that they match the DMR instead. This is a much better solution. We had slow gameplay in Reach and it was terrible.


This is exactly what should happen, and it looks like 343 is trying to do something like this. Hopefully, they don't listen to the Waypoint kids who are all throwing a fit for a DMR nerf. It's like they want slow, boring gameplay.
