So ive always been a DMR fan. I was a huge Reach player and i really loved it. In Halo 4 i have always been most comfortable with the DMR. I could easily win a 1v1 with any other normal weapon. I stopped playing Halo 4 right before the weapons update. I started again about 3 months ago and have been really concentrating on my competitive side of playing.
I have been doing well, but yesterday i noticed when i came up against another player. He was equally skilled as me. The reason i noticed the 1v1’s that we actually had was because he won both of them. I killed him a few times too but had help from team mates.
The two times in question we met, both had full shields and i would say fired at the same time. However i had a DMR and he had a BR. He seemed to kill me REALLY fast, before i could even take the final shot i was dead.
So i looked up some stats on the weapons after the update. The BR is 4 shot kill with 1.4 kill time. The DMR is 5 shot with 1.6 kill time!
I was shocked!
I am all about playing to win now. I will happily change to using the BR if it is the better all round weapon (even though i just got a new DMR skin). I am a bit of a n00b however with the BR. I like to have one loadout slot for my main weapon and one for PP or AR (and spare for power weapons). How does the BR go as a main goto weapon? I play mostly BTB, how does it go long range, is it completely useless?
Whats it like V’s AR and SAW? Anyother tricks or things i should know about?
I also noticed the Carbine has a faster kill time, explains my timely deaths to carbine players (that i just put down to lag previously).
Do you like the BR? Keep in mind i never played Halo 3 online. I started with Reach which is why i pick the weapons i do.
