1) There should be no recoil on any guns used by a Spartan/Elite. They weigh enough and are strong enough to not have any. On ODST's yes, recoil mechanics. Spartans should not be slowed carrying a turret. ODST' should.
2) The DRM is apparently a stronger 2-hand M6D type weapon. With rapid-tap for CQC needs.
Whether it's eyes shut tight or eyes wide open, it is the fool who doesn't question what they see.
I got what'chya mean. But since these a futuristic weapons, we can consider such things resolved. We've got "portable" guass-canons on jeeps man :)
Remember the weapons themselves canon wise aren't actually what they are in game.
The SMG is really more like a Ak-74 in that it fires 5.56 caseless rounds. The AR is a battle rifle firing 7.62 rounds HE-powder. The BR fires 9.5 rounds and the sniper fires anti-material 14 point-something rounds, both are gas propelled rounds.
Honestly, they got the mechanics down.
Are you not entertained? Is this not why you are here?
