Why didn't they add the needle rifle in this game from Halo Reach?

The Storm Covenant probably weren't able to get any on hand, even if they wanted any.

Maybe the needle rifle wasnt practical for the covenent army to use when there were so many other weapons they could equip the elites with. The grunts can handle needlers so the needle rifle was probably phased out before Halo 3 even.

Meh, I don't care for the Needle Rifle. I'm sad that the Plasma Rifle didn't return though. Or the SMG which probably could have worked as a 4th secondary option.

The Needle Rifle would have been extremely redundant with the Carbine already in the game. Not to mention it would render the Carbine rather pointless since it'd be, what, seven to nine shots to the kill (Six to drop shields, and either one for the headshot or three for the supercombine).
