The Covenant's hidden sniper

Where is it? The bullet used to kill Kat went through her helmet meaning it was of heavy caliber meaning it was a Covenant sniper and not a needle rifle. Neddle rifle bullets just stick over the armor, not go through it.

With that in mind. Any plans to upgrade the beam rifle? I think increasing it’s damage output by 10-20% will be perfect.

They replaced Kat’s helmat with a fake, cause she sucks at driving and she almost killed 6 way to much. >_<!!!

She was betrayed, because of her bad driving. XD

This has been discussed at length before, basically boiling down to the radiation from the recent glassing took down their shields, and they didn’t have time to recharge before she got shot. Or something to that effect.

Or maybe a higher being took pity on everyone else and killed her, cause she was killing everyone else.

Also a possibility.

I’m pretty sure it was a needle rifle.

It’s come down to the radiation from the glassing beam disabling her shields. It’s a pity Bungie didn’t add in the static around the armour when shields are depleted, or had a member of NOBLE comment on why their shields weren’t rebooting.

Kat had some problems with the other nobles… So one of them obviously hired the zealot as a Hitman to dispose of her…

She owed jorge money for hiring him to take down some insurrectionists, a job SHE was supposed to do. She didn’t have the 9000 credits so she tried to use her feminine charm but failed… And jorge still wanted his money.

Jun, the one who talks too much. She was pregnant with his 7th child and he didn’t want anymore children.

She touched Emile’s Kukri and he didn’t appreciate that… As an apology she did some “stuff” for emile and engaged him in some “close quarters combat”

After witnessing the “stuff” she was doing with emile, Carter got jealous… Little did he know that Kat was pregnant with JUN’s child and not HIS…

And then there’s noble six… the quiet one… Don’t trust the quiet ones… Did he get driven off a cliff one too many times? Did he replace kat’s helmet with a cheap plastic copy? Nobody knows what thoughts and emotions are stirring in that mind of his.

So one of them decided to hire that zealot… they gave him EXACT coordinates of where they were and in the end, Kat paid the price… Who hired that zealot? The world may never know.

I’m pretty sure I read the exact same thing on a Bungie.net post.

She didn’t have her shields active, thats why the bullet didn’t deflect.

Why not just bring back the beam rifle?

One thing, the physics in the cut scenes are different than the physics in the gameplay.
