Seeing as how the previous games introduced some nifty weapons:

-Needle Rifle
-Brute Plasma Rifle
-Plasma Repeater
-Brute Shot
-Sentinel Beam
-Spike Grenade
-Incendiary Grenade

I mean, that's a pretty big list of weapons that didn't make the cut when you think about it. On that note:

Pick out 3 from the list that you like to see implemented through an update.

Needle Rifle
Spike Grenade

Those are the only two you listed I really miss tbh.

Because this isn't the previous games. And good thing too, I never used any of those weapons and I quite like the promethian weapons.

Taking out all those combined is still less of an impact on the game than when Halo 2 took out the AR
I hate listening to dreams. It's like flipping through a stack of pictures. If I'm not in any of them, and nobody's having sex, I just...don't care

Needle Rifle - Crappy version of Carbine
Brute Plasma Rifle - Crap
Plasma Repeater - You mean the regular plasma rifle? Crap too
Brute Shot - Mediocre/no more Brutes
Sentinel Beam - Crap
SMG - Crap
Spike Grenade - Inferior
Incendiary Grenade - Crap

The Needle Rifle was top tier. Thing had a bigger clip than the DMR, as well as a chance to cause a Supercombine explosion on any part of the body if their health was low enough. I really do miss it.

yep, this is the one weapon I was really sad to see it not make it into Halo 4. The grenade launcher was one of the best things that Halo Reach did tight. I hope to see it make a return in Halo 5/6 some day.

Hey you also forgot the...

focus rifle
magnum (no scope)
plasma rifle (slightly different from repeater)
flame thrower
missile pod
spiker (made a weird appearance in Halo Reach)
plasma launcher

My big question: why did they take out the Falcon?!

Sentinal beam maybe, but the Promethean weapons are better.
