Replace the plasma caster with a CrossBow weapon!

<mark>Do not create/use alternate accounts to bypass forum bans.</mark>

I’m not liking anything about the Plasma Caster. However it’s design gave me an idea that I think would be a good replacement. A Promethien CrossBow. Would be a nice change. Id even like to see a UNSC one they should all be attached with explosives on the tip of the spear that explode in impact!

    device on the end of the arrow that explodes on impact that has really low auto aim assist and is featured as a power weapon in arena modes.
    i mean heh, they’ve basically tried to make the plasma caster a crossbow anyway and failed miserably.
    mayaswell just make a real one.
    What do u think?

I’m not sure how forerunners with all their shiny tech would actually resort to using a version of a primitive human bow and arrow, but I can see the unsc using those,…maybe not I don’t know. Have you been playing crysis lately?

Just finally give up!!
Everybody disagreed with you on your other threads, and nobody is going to agree with you now only because you made a second account…

No thanks. I like the idea of it. Especially since 4 reduced the legitimacy of grenades / plasma’s in general. It’s a good way to make up for not having a propipe/better grenades.

Other threads?

What is it with bows in shooters these days? I mean, they were only made obsolete, what, 500 years ago?
Seriously, a single bullet from a gun can outdamage an arrow any day.
Plus, we have the railgun, which has similar base characteristics to a bow, but isn’t 1000 years out of place.

I like the Plasma Caster. This Promethean crossbow thing is not mutually exclusive with the Plasma Caster.

“Forunners with all their shiny tech”
so crossbows can’t be shiny and be designed to be technological?

Guns can can but crossbows can’t? Yeh?
Have u been playing destiny lately?
Groundpound + HoverAim + Shoulder Charge.

Umm lol h5 grenades are the strongest grenades of any halo game. They made them extra strong due to thrusters being in the game.

No I’ve never played destiny before. So, you want to spend time picking arrows after combat?

I think u need to re read my post buddy.
Uve gone way off topic.
The post stated that the tip of the arrow would have a grenade on it. This is far more effective than any gun.
The reason crossbows aren’t out of date is because they not only look good but they require skill to use.

U my will notice that a lot of ppl whit aren’t good Aimee’s hate crossbows :wink:

ps. As I said very clearly in my post. A “forunner crossbow” MEANING a high tech design.

Wait, do you mean super high tech like this?

It certainly is a better way to fire a plasma grenade. Since throwing them by hand makes them somewhat slow and short ranged, this crossbow mode can help. But then nobody would want to throw grenades again maybe?

Humans 500 years in the future alone wouldn’t use a crossbow, let alone the Covenant species, or the Forerunners.

Then why the plasma caster?

How about a slingshot? But instead of using rocks as projectiles you could use frags.
