Please Add an Empty Magnum to Snipers

Seriously, I HATE having no secondary to switch to when scoped with the sniper. I don’t see why an empty magnum would hurt. Would really like to Y Y and such. Please add an empty magnum to snipers.

Good idea!

That’s sounds dumb. Changing weapons to get out of a scope, just let go of the scope button and you’re not scoped anymore.

If you play with more classic controls its harder to just hold down the right stick, most older players just press it once to zoom in and press it again to zoom out, or as the OP stated switch weapons to quickly get out of zoom, that’s how I used to do it way back when, but once we got the ability to button map I got used to a more specialized layout.

i play on recon, so my scope is on RS. Pressing the stick 2 times to scope out every time can be kinda hard on your thumb, especially if you keep doing it for extended periods. Doing YY makes it really nice and simple.

The question is, what control layout are you currently using? Like what AleterixT said, it can be quite inconvenient to double-tap the RS stick to get out of scope and also can be difference between you winning or losing a sniper battle. If you’re asking what button layout I’m using, I use the Recon layout so I understand his/her problem.

iMP Arrow Maybe you should think first before you type to save yourself from potentially getting yourself in trouble. No hard feelings on you, but I’ll remind you for your own good.

Edit: If anything I said to you hurt your feelings or insulted you, I’m sorry, I wasn’t trying to. I sometimes say that to keep people out of trouble or to save themselves from getting into trouble in the near future. Won’t say that all that often but, I’ll do on occasions.

No not you, I just submitted the post without realizing I forgot to insert the name of the guy I was originally replying to. Misreplies tend to happen ¯_(ツ)_/¯

read the rest of the replies smh…

That is ridiculous. Why bother to carry a depleted weapon on hand in Snipers? Just hit “Y” once and you’ll descope.

It’s just not the same. You cant even cut the reload animation halfway without a secondary weapon. It just feels “ugly” overall.

You can interrupt the reload process by doing a very short sprint or using your thruster evade.

facepalms with a Plasma Grenade

You’re quite the stubborn one, aren’t ya? Look, it may not be the same, but it’s better than nothing!

I dont see why it’d hurt you if an empty magnum was added…

So you want 343 to add something even though you can already descope by hitting the Y button just to appease your habit? Yeah, that’s not gonna happen.

Snipers ranked struggles. Foreals.

One time, back in the Halo Reach days, I went back to watch a BTB match in theater mode. I wanted to watch it from someone else’s perspective. So I saw this player pick up a sniper rifle. Now, I could be wrong, but in Halo Reach, you couldn’t actually go into another player’s first-person view in theater. So I was watching this player from third-person.

And I noticed something weird. Occasionally, while trying to snipe, they would melee seemingly for no reason. They weren’t trying to punch anyone, they were just meleeing. And later, when I had a sniper rifle myself, I realized that person was actually meleeing in order to descope. Not sure if this is helpful, since I basically never use sniper rifles in Halo 5 so things may have changed, but there it is
