Why reuse the carbine model for the needle rifle?

I mean, they could import the Halo 2 Anniversary Battle Rifle model, why not make a model for the needle rifle and import it instead of repainting a Carbine and changing projectiles?

Or is it that time- and resource-consuming?

They could have probably but in the end it’s easier to apply a skin and make a new lore tid bit

Whut?

Yeah what he said

It wasn’t the same H2:A model that 343 states.

Blood of Suban is not the Type 31 Needle Rifle, it’s as simple as that.

It’s not the needle rifle.

Blood of Suban is canon wise and holds 20 rounds while needler rifle holds 21

Because it’s easier to do and doesn’t cost as much.

343 are some LAZY cheap mofos… hence why we only have yoinking forge btb maps and nothing but mostly remixes for arena maps.

That’s the halo 2 classic rifle fool not the horrible abomination that was H2 Anniversary.

Because they didn’t want to add a new weapon, just reuse an existing one to give us something new. I would have preferred it to be a new model though.

Meh, I thought that Halo 2 Anniversary was a decent take on the standard Halo formula. Certainly better than Halo 5. And the model is taken from the Halo 2 Anniversary’s Campaign. Google it, they look the same.

Woah, this community, people even hate Halo 2A? Why?

And besides, pretty damn sure it is the same model.

It’s not, 343i said in the livestream they built a new model for it in Halo 5. They just look so similar because of how -Yoink!- they are.

And OP, it’s not the needle rifle, far from. Hell it’s probably better than the needle rifle because of it’s faster fire rate.

And 5 shot shield non affected super combine

I don’t see why it matters. The gun looks cool, kicks -Yoink-, and builds on the existing trend of weapon variants. Seems like a silly thing to be upset about.

Just because the Needle Rifle had a certain behaviour and whatnot in Halo Reach, it doesn’t mean that it would have had to behave the exact same way in Halo 5. They could have easily used the Needle Rifle look while altering the way it works. You know, like they do with every other weapon.

I like it better this way. If they used a new skin then they’d likely need to make additional Req variants for it but this way its just another Carbine variant. This actually fits the Halo lore, as the Carbine is one of the few projectile weapons the Covenant employs, as opposed to the numerous energy based weapons.
