Just tried the CE magnum on recurve

And now I totally understand why it not load out, 3 shots wrecked people and I’ve never had so many perfect kills( obviously more likely with less shots) but seeing how the warzone one also has a speed boost I understand.
However if the speed boost was removed then I could see it being a few 7/8 weapon. Bayonets come at req 8 and they’re really strong so I don’t see it being too crazy.

Yeah, I totally don’t see a gun that can kill people faster than an SMG that also has range being a problem either.

Seriously though, a sword or bayonet you can stop before it hits you, but if you’re facing against a CE magnum the only chance you have is if you outnumber him or you have a power weapon. Every loadout weapon is tailored so that it’s possible to win against each other, including the CE magnum would disbalance the balance, even if you removed the speed boost.

Welcome to the light side of the Mantle of Game Balance. We have cookies, cake, pie, and ice cream. Also REQs. All the REQs. But you have to pray to RNGesus for some good ones.

It’s funny how there is this huge thread about how it should be a loadout weapon and then those same people actually get a chance to use it for the first time in H5 in custom games, Recurve, etc and then go “Oh wow, this thing owns hard.” and then understand why it shouldn’t, in any way, be a loadout weapon.

They could at least add it in swatnums.

I feel like if it were to go to a loadout weapon, people would scream over why it is not powerful and stick to the formula that the pervious halos had. They would have to nurf it and people would get mad about them doing that

Adding it to swatnums would be a nice touch

Now there’s an idea. Its a 1 shot kill game mode anyway…that just might work.

Is the weapon hit scan or projectile like classic Halo? Do you need to lead shots is what I’m wondering really.

Hitscan I do believe.

How do you get ammo? From a REQ station? Or is it just normal pistol ammo? Just wondered because it says that you’ll need to find ammo on the way.

That wouldn’t really be much more than a cosmetic change I suppose. You can still four-shot people in Swatnums at the moment anyway.
I wouldn’t mind the awesome firing noise though

Its hitscan. I don’t think any non-explosive/needler weapons are not hitscan, cept maybe the Railgun

Railgun was changed to hitscan in the last update to make it more reliable during unstable connections.

That’s too funny.

That explains why I’ve been doing so badly with the Railgun lately… I’ve been trying to lead my shots as I always have, to no avail. Thanks for pointing that out!

Sorry, what? Instead of answering my question, you’d both rather laugh at me?

I haven’t used it much, so don’t honestly know if it takes standard pistol ammo? It says on the REQ card that you have to find ammo as you go… doesn’t say that on any other weapon. So instead of acting like -Yoinks!-, perhaps you could answer my question?

lol You need to find another CE Magnum to get more ammo. Since it’s a power weapon, not a loadout weapon. In BTB however, the pistol respawns after a period of time and you can get more ammo.

Cool, thanks. So basically no chance of finding any more ammo in Warzone then… chances are very slim that someone else would have one and drop it at the same time and place that I need it.
