I get the point; spawning a bit of ways from the enemy, it’s good to have a long-mid range weapon at the ready. But the other team spawns with the exact same thing. I find BR starts unbearable, and prefer the AR starts, leaving the BR as a map pickup. Still Arena battle gameplay.
I usually ditch the pistol for whatever is on the ground because I usually find the pistol/magnums pretty close to worthless. (don’t make eye contact with the Halo CE pistol…)
Edit: Honestly, its all about the situation. What your given at the time. You start out with BR, and youre blasting across the map. The AR on the other hand forces you to traverse, get closer, dig in deep into the map until you get the drop on someone. Know what I mean?
