Your Top 2 Weapons and their Effectiveness

What are your top 2 weapons on Halo: Reach and what do you do to fully utilize that weapons potential?

Sniper Rifle:
I hang back, cover my teammate and let them know of any enemy movements.

Energy Sword:
I pick an area and set up a trap. When an enemy activates the trap thats when I strike.

Banshee bomb:
I steal it from the elites on Spire and spawn kill them to kingdom come.

Needle rifle:
Once my teammates pop an enemy’s shields, I steal the kill with a quick headshot.

:smiley:

Top two used and top two preferred are probably different but I like the DMR or Magnum for my primary.

MY Fist (Stat and preference this is my first)
I aim for a quick pummel (if not an assassination). I help the team by quickly getting to the goal and causing distractions.

Assault Rifle (Stat has this as my 2nd)
I use this to lay down cover fire for teammates and obviously its a nice midrange weapon.

Needler (this is my preferred 2nd)
I use this one to just go for some longer rang kills and usually aim for the enemy near the goal of the game.

I enjoy the CQC aspects of Reach, and so I like:

Shotgun
A great close range weapon, which doesn’t have the limited range of a sword. It might take longer, but you can kill someone from a decent distance away.

Magnum
A weapon that fills the roles of a close and medium range weapon is my kind of weapon. With the plentiful ammo available from enemies, it basically has a near-constant supply of ammo. Oh and in Anniversary playlists, it rocks.

That’s a hard one…

My weapons varies depending on game type and the map I’m currently playing.

I can tell you now I absolutely dislike using the sniper rifle because of the use of the XBOX 360 controller’s analogue sticks makes it hard to pin point a shot, on the other hand however I absolutely love the sniper rifle in the original Halo for the PC due to using it with a mouse is a lot easier.

That aside, if say I’m playing Damnation (my favorite map) I will either use the shotgun or magnum sometimes if handy the Rocket Launcher.

Hang 'em High = Shotgun or Magnum
Beaver Creek = Rocket Launcher or Magnum
Prisoner = Rifle or Rocker Launcher (some cases the Magnum)
Timberland = Magnum or Sniper Rifle
Headlong = Ugggghhh… new map please!

Speaking of maps, are there going to be more maps released for Halo Anniversary soon? I.e. Sidewinder, Blood Gultch, Boarding Action, Rat Race, Death Island, infinity, Danger Canyon, Ice Fields, Gephyrophobia, Chiron TL-34, etc. Halo Anniversary just wouldn’t be complete without these maps re-done like the others!

banshee bomb: To spawn kill

warthog gunner: To spawn kill

This made me chuckle :slight_smile:

DMR and Sniper. That’s all a man needs.

> DMR and Sniper. That’s all a man needs.

That’s what I was going to say!!!

But I guess if you look at my stats, it says DMR, then pistol, then my fist, and then the sniper. I just like to cover all my bases :stuck_out_tongue:

By kdr my top 2 are plasma pistol at 17, and fuel rod cannon at 6.25

By kills, its dmr with a kdr of 1.86, and fist at 1.35

I am known among my friends as sometimes crazy for what I can do with power weapons.

Favorite Power Weapon: The Rocket Launcher

Favorite Non-Power Weapon: DMR

Favorite Close Quarters Weapon: Energy Sword/Shotgun

I have a vehicle as my ToD and I still have a terrible K/D. My K/D is .65 even though I have more vehicle kills than precision weapon kills.

…So no I am not using it the right way.

thats very funny. “…no offensive of defensive capabilities whatsoever.”

I imagine that having more kills with the mongoose than with the DMR means you’re putting yourself into line of fire more often than you’re actually firing. No wonder your KDR is low… but I’m impressed nonetheless.

Needle Rifle: The TU made it even better.
Magnum: I love the Anniversary Magnum!
