Where that Covie Shotty at tho

The UNSC and Prometheans each have their own version of the Shotty
Where the Covenant Shotty at tho? Would be awesome to see Grunts running around with them, I can see it now…

The Covie’s have the Energy Sword as their “close range” weapon. There isn’t really a need for a shotgun-like weapon.

Oh, but there is…

343 could bring the Mauler back.

The only revolver style gun in the whole Halo (game) series. Still that’ll be okay I guess but I have doubts because reasons…

I would love a Covenant shotgun.
Fires a bunch of needles projectiles per shot, instant supercombine, (just imagine it) beautiful!

What about a needle shotgun, needles disburse over a long distance?

So like the Blaze of Glory but a needle effect rather than disintegration?

Yeah, but it supercombines a second after hitting its target. 343 could add some particularities to make it different from the shotguns we know.

Charged plasma pistol/concussion riffle.
Plus.
10 carbide shots.
“Bark of balaho” ?

When you shoot it looks like green lightning impales enemies as it throws them.
Sparks leaving their bodies after death.

The Concussion Rifle kind of was the shotty equivalent, but it took too many shots to kill a person. Still weird why they took it out.

What if after super-combine, the needle shards could “jump” and home in on nearby enemies? Super-combine again, repeat. Literal chained multi-kills…

I could get down with a covenant shotgun… that’d be sweet

I have hopes because reasons…

The Banished duh

The Mauler was designed explicitly with dual wield in mind. It wouldn’t function well in the current Halo environment.

I remember hating using it against anything other than the flood.

Name a reason other than visuals or cool-ness factor. There needs to be a use, a niche for it to exist in.

Here’s an idea for a covie shotgun I found on the web.

  1. Go to Forge

  2. Merge Plasma Pistol with Scattershot

  3. ???

  4. Profit

Aren’t there enough weapons in this game already? Scrolling through the req system takes ages.
