Does anyone know what the difference is between...

the Classic BR REQ from December’s update and January’s Classic Halo 2 BR REQ?

Halo 2 BR allows you to armor lock while the classic BR does not.

What do you mean armor lock?

He’s just troll posting about armor lock. He has a habit of doing that for some reason.

I’m not sure what the real difference is.

Classic BR: purely aesthetic scope change with classic scope view. Mechanics of the gun and rest of the model is the same.

H2 BR: longer bursts (bullets more spread out, instead of feeling like its nearly a single shot like h5 Br ), counteracted with slightly higher rof ( not sure on this part). Classic reticule with classic zoom, H2 anniversary model.

I think the difference is the way the bursts work. The classic Halo 2 BR has a more noticeable pause between the bullets within a burst, and the BR we’ve had since the beginning of Halo 5 fires so quickly that the burst seems like a single round at first.

Also classic Br can have attachment, H2 BR is a legendary mythic loadout, only the traditional variant.

One looks like the Halo 5 rifle but with a pre-Halo 5 style scope.

Halo 2 BR looks, probably sounds, like the classic BR completely.

Think of it this way; if you want a BR that functions like the old ones, you go for the Classic BR we have now. If you want a BR that functions and looks like the old ones for novelty sake, you go for the Halo 2 BR.

No the firing mechanics are different so h2 br will be much closer to old school br. Classic “” br is just a different scope and zoom in view

no difference just the sound and smaller reticle

Wow, you have early access to the Halo 2 BR REQ? How did you get early access?

Or are you guessing and trying to play it off as fact?

Cmon brah! Read before posting. :slight_smile:

I clearly stated which parts I was unsure about. This is based off of watching video. The bursts are further apart, based on what I’ve seen.

Please don’t spread misinformation, then. Unless you used the gun in-game you have no idea how differently it functions.

They used it in the stream, the one that’s happening rn. It’s got longer bursts

Have they said it has longer bursts? Have they mentioned any differences? Because it’s totally not like streams lag and hiccup and act weird and make guns look weird in-game compared to actual gameplay.

You spread misinformation on your post stating classic br functions like the old ones. That is definitely incorrect. The only change us aesthetics is the scope and scoped view. Using a combination of video and logic my post was speculative yes, but likely correct to a degree and thus not misinformation. Learn the difference in the terms, don’t spread misinformation yourself, and don’t rush to attack others please.a

The smaller reticule and the description of it suggests it could also be slightly more accurate.

(Speculation, not misinformation here)

A scope is a function. Zooming is a function. If the Classic BR we now have zooms in like the old one, it functions like the old one.
If the Halo 2 is just the Classic BR reskinned to actually look like the classic BR, then it’s just an aesthetic change.
All that is true, and I said nothing extra.

But nice try trying to spin this on someone else.

Seriously? The zoom is only aesthetic change. Its still 2x. Minimall, your post was misleading. It doesn’t function like an old br in terms of firing mechanics. So the core guns are different in that sense. From what I and others have seen the new H2 BR DOES function differently, in terms of firing mechanics. So that’s all there is to it.
