Pulled from the HALO 4 facts thread:
You may only choose two of the following to enhance your load out as it seems-
- Mobility: allows you to move faster
- Best IMO, strafing is where the skill gap is at
- Ammo: increase capacity bonus
You are the weapon, I’d personally like to collect ammo whilst tea bagging
- Firepower: 2 primary weapons, replaces secondary
- Plasma Pistol too useful, also disables vehicles
- Awareness: integrates motion sensor into all scoped weapons
- Good for snipers, otherwise you are zoomed in less than 4% of the time
- AA efficiency: longer AA duration
- Resupply: allows you to pickup grenades off corpses
- Too dependent on play style of your opponents
- Sensor: increase range of radar
- What more Can I say? Radar >>> Promethean vision for all it’s intensive purposes.
- Shield: recharge shields faster
- Only useful in Halo Reach with the slow -Yoink- kill time.
Personally, I’d pick Mobility for strafing and the beginning mad dash to power weapons, and Sensor for more map dominance. As for my load out ability, I’d def pick thruster pack for extra map presence and control. (Radar does almost everything that forerunner vision does, but better)
My weapon of choice would be:
Carbine - Most 4v4 maps: faster ROF, more KS potential, shorter kill time
DMR - Most 5v5 and above maps: Slower & More Stopping Power & More Zoom Carbine, perfect gun while using your teammates as bullet sponges.
Light Rifle? - Looks to be a Carbine & DMR cross, not too much information available.
No BR - Loses to Carbine at close - mid range, loses to DMR at mid - long range, FUN to shoot, available from easy tea bagging.
- Crap, typo in title, the interwebs will kill me now-
I’d pick Shield and Firepower. Shield because I hate how slow the shield regen is. the faster I can go back into battle, the better. also gives me a better chance to be ready against them chasers. also, for Firepower, BR for mid-long range with Storm Rifle for CQB. that’s the best combo ever. just like in Halo 3 (for me), BR for mid-long range with Plasma Rifle for CQB.
while I will definitly use the others for other classes, Firepower + Shield with BR + Storm Rifle will be my main class.
Shield and Mobility. For extra shields and for extra mobility.
Sensor and Firepower are the most appealing to me. A faster recharging shield and two primary are prob gonna be the AA I use the most.
Firepower easily, BR + DMR starts = epic
resupply because i like using nades
awareness because i want to prevent being snuck upon when im scoped in
> Firepower easily, BR + DMR starts = epic
why would you want two mid to long range weapons when you could settle for BR+AR then you would have both a short range and mid to long range
OT: The two main weapons one so I could have double the sniper ammo.

Easy, most of the action takes place from mid range in where BR is king. If they are far enough DMR easily takes em out and if they get close melee to finish the job. Not to mention both DMR and BR are versitile enough to work outside their designated ranges unlike AR which (from the videos I’ve seen) barely works in its own range.

you wish that you can pick sniper as your starting load out.

You can’t? That’s depressing.
Since we can pick two apprently:
as the Chief would say, i’d “mix things up a little”
i’d use all of them every once in a while
It’s a pretty hard decision for me. I would definitely choose Shield and maybe Resupply since I like to use grenades.
I definitely wouldn’t choose Firepower because I can always start with a DMR, Carbine, or Storm Rifle (although I wish I could see it in action more), and I can pick up a BR off of someone’s body if I want one (since pretty much everyone is gonna be using the BR).
> Shield and Mobility. For extra shields and for extra mobility.
Simple as that
I’m thinking this:
> Since we can pick two apprently:
> Class 1:
> Class 2:
> Plasma Pistol
> Hardlight Shield
I don’t think you can shoot while Hardlight Shield is ON.
but, hey, have it your way.
