Shotgun and Zoom In

This has probably been talked about before, but I couldn’t find a thread about it so, here one is.

At 0:52, the Shotgun user zooms in to shoot. At first I thought they shot right before zooming in, but after a closer look, they shot right after zooming in. So is this the Shotguns scope? Or can we shoot weapons when using the Spartans default zoom?


I noticed that but didn’t take it into consideration…


I noticed that too, but I didn’t know what to make of it.

Binoculars and accidental stick click. Not a actual shotgun zoom for range

its not a shotgun scope, we have a scope by default but you can’t shoot or aim while using it, what hes doing is scoping in to make the shot a little more accurate when he shoots, this same technique is done in previous halos.

I think that’s the basic helmet zoom.

Watch it frame by frame, it hasn’t a scope in.

It’s only an accidental stick.

Uh? If you play it in slow-mo, he shoots then zooms almost immediately after shooting. Not the other way around.

I think it was the “binoculars” built into the helmet.

The lack of an aiming reticle also indicates it’s not a scope.

Yeah, probably just some basic helmet zoom, a usable one this time around ^^
I see no reason to add zoom to a cqc weapon, it’s like trying to noscope with a sniper, pointless (pun intended) :wink:
