What will your Loadout be?

This is a straight forward question.
Just post your own loadout for Halo 4 (including Armour ability), and reasons for choosing that loadout.

My Loadout,

Primary Weapon: Light Rifle
Secondary Weapon: Supressor (Firepower Perk lets me have a second primary)
Grenade: Pulse Grenade
Armor Ability: Hardlight Shield
Tactical Package: Firepower
Support Package: Dexterity

What can I say, i’m obsessed with anything Forerunner related. Thats why my loadout is completely Forerunner and also because forerunner weapons kick -Yoink-

Let me get back to you in 8 days.

Uh probably try to stay with longer range rifles

It depends on the map and gametype, but right now, I’m thinking this:

Primary: LightRifle/DMR
Secondary: Boltshot
Grenade: Stickies/Frags (I’ll know for sure after I try out both.)
AA: Hologram/Thruster Pack
Tactical Package: Shielding
Support Upgrade: Dexterity

This will probably change more once I’ve played with everything and decide what I like best.

MY plan currently:

Primary Weapon: Assault Rifle
Secondary: Magnum
Grenade: Pulse Grenade
Armor Ability: Jet Pack
Tactical Package: Shielding
Support Package: Ammo

Subject to change in 8 days.

Primary: LR/DMR The opposite will be my secondary when I get firepower
Secondary: Magnum/Boltshot/LR/DMR
Grenade: Anything
Armor Ability: Anything
Tact. Package: Firepower anything else before I unlock it
Support: Anything I see as useful.

This is based off of what I’ve seen, and will most likely change after I give each individual weapon a try.

Have to wait for the game really but this is what i hope it will be

Primary Weapon: Assault Rifle (crossing fingers that it will be an effective weapon)
Secondary: Boltshot or Plasma pistol
Grenade: Sticky grenades
Armor Ability: Thruster pack
Tactical Package: Shielding
Support Package: Mobility or ammo

Why assault rifle and magnum…those are the most basic out of all weapons…also considering that the boltshot is way better than the magnum and the supressor/storm rifle blows the assault rifle out of the water

Personal choices my friend. Suppressor is Short range. Cant pick up ammo for Storm rifle. Plus from what Ive seen the AR is the best its been in a long time.
As for magnum, I just love that gun!

-The N00B 4

-The N00B 5

+Summary: Work together brilliantly to lose the game for their team. The N00B 1 team kills in a strategy to trick the opposing team(s). The N00B 2 jumps off the map to add to the trickery. The N00B 3 misses most of their shots and wastes all the ammo for the power weapons. The N00B 4 rapidly spins around while looking up and moving around randomly; they are the lookout for enemy banshees and are also a distraction. The N00B 5 is a pacifist and does nothing the entire game or quits earily in rebellion to the violence; they don’t have a fire team because they are a non-conformist. They all diligently fodder themselves to snipers so those players can make get multi-kills and resultingly post video clips of the proceedings.
