I disagree. While I can agree that the DMR is pretty much established as the best weapon overall, the other weapons are far from useless. My weapon of choice lately has been the magnum, snagging 11+ kills alone with it in a single game. The BR also has its uses, though it's not as effective overall due to the DMR easily overpowering it from range.
The assault rifle has also had a noticeable increase in damage output as it completely shreds people when you get close enough. Power weapons have always been power weapons, so nothing's changed there. Incinerator Cannon/Rocket launcher, they're pretty much guaranteed kills which is nothing new in Halo..... so I'm not sure entirely of where you're trying to go with that example.
Ordinance drops are a nice way to freshen up things, and I agree that they're far from great. I wouldn't really classify them in terms of Care Packages though. You don't get 8+ kills in halo by calling dogs or a chopper gunner, you might be lucky and get a Smaw or damage boost at best. The rest are pretty much crap. (I mean a needler as an ordinance? Mobility boost? Common....) In either case what I'm getting at is the "cheapness" that you speak of is far more dominant in COD. A simple care package can make or break a game if your team is garbage and you manage to get lucky with an AC-130/Pavelow/Gunship, but what's the best you're gonna get in Halo? A 30 second damage boost that gets you maybe a 3 kills? It's far from "cheap" if you ask me.
I'm also not sure where you're getting at with this sticky/auto aim argument either. So far I haven't noticed/experienced anything of the such as you've described and I've been playing Halo since the original CE.
I will tell you that Halo 4 still by far takes more skill and accuracy to kill someone than any COD game I've ever played. Don't get me wrong, I love both, but I actually have to work for my kills in Halo, a good majority of the time. I don't feel the same in COD. I've always managed to achieve a 2.0+ K/D (2.5+ in MW3) with little to no problem.
We trained harder than you today, and we're gonna party harder than you tonight. Mint with the crew.
Can't believe people in here are actually saying Halo smh.
Decided to pop in on the CoD board and am surprised at how many people who said Halo. Makes me happy. I'll just wait for christmas to get Black Ops 2. Zombies look entertaining.

Halo 4 by far. Better multiplayer, better campaign.
In line for Black Ops 2 right now. I will comment once I play it. I have Halo4 and nearly a 2.0 kill/death ratio
Bad News: 2-6 all time. Good news: The coach has usually been fired at some point that season.

Halo is trash for tryhards who think they are too cool for CoD
