I for one am in love with the boltshot, light rifle and carbine. For long range vehicle maps, I use the light rifle and plasma pistol. For smaller maps like haven or adrift, I whip out my trusty carbine and boltshot. Seriously, the light rifle is easily the best gun for long range since in scope, it's only 4 shots in the head to kill. And I love the fast firing of the carbine. I'm constantly winning battles against BRs and DMRs just because I can place each shot and screw up their aiming so much. And the boltshot? Don't even get me started. I get 4-10 kills on average with that gun per game. It's such a good gun. And even if you only take their shields down just shoot them in the head.The weapons are probably my favorite thing about Halo 4 so far.~U_K~

Totally agree, I've won every regicide game (a braggable 4) I've been in by a landslide thanks to my lightrifle and suppressor. I use the plasma pistol on the vehicle maps only, since I tend to do a lot of hijacking and vehicle destroying. And don't even get me started on the Mantis, I LOVE that thing, I went 20 and 2 in a game of Cap the Flag using mantis only. The stomp ability helps soooo much when those nasty little reds try to hijack you. I've noticed not many people use the mantis, which is fine with me, since I just hog it all game since I have much practice with it.Also, Spartan Slayer commendation Expert is gonna take awhile to get, I have 200 something of the 600 kills I need for expert, mastery is going to take forever.And hey, how good you are doesn't matter. I'm really good but I've noticed the less experience tend to make for funner custom games, just a trend I've seen. We definitly need to have a BZP game night (Xaron, I turn to you for that), but not Friday, my dad is having a Halo gamenight of his own (for some reason he doesn't let me play, I think its because I've finally surpassed his skills in Halo :P)

The Boltshot is so hard to use. Also, I can't figure out the purpose of the Carbine or Light Rifle outside of story mode. The Carbine was freaking awesome in Halo 3 but the made it kill with 8 instead of 7 shots, plus it has less aim assist and straight up longer kill times. The Light Rifle isn't hitscan and has longer kill times than both the DMR and the BR. Can anyone tell me why I should use anything but those two human weapons as my primary gun?

Boltshot's not that hard to use, but it does take a while to consistently get the timing of the charge right.Also I only use the DMR for those exact reasons.

I only use the DMR now. I'm finding it near impossible to compete against enemy DMRs with a Lightrifle or BR, especially when I have to hip fire. I haven't tried to counter with the Carbine yet, but judging by the fact that most rounds of Ragnarok are DMR fests, it probably isn't what I'm looking for.

@ J46 Nui, I have Halo PC and I think I have custom edition installed too, I probably wouldn't mind joining some games with you, though I will probably suck at the PC version, or at least suck worse.As for Turahk, I have not played the level in a while, is there a plasma pistol nearby? If not then try ripping off the turret and hiding behind cover, very simple and probably ineffectual but I felt like I should say something...

Okay, I've been playing with the Light Rifle and Bolt Shot combo today, and I'm a believer. At least for small/mid size maps. On big ones I'll still go DMR. I still can't see the purpose of the Carbine beyond it disrupting the enemy's aim a bit more than the other guns. It doesn't seem like enough incentive. I hope they buff it.

^His spoiler. Completely. So, SR31 now, been playing around with a few things, and sorry to say to everyone above, but the DMR is the far-supperior weapon in this game. Sure, Light Rifle may be stronger, but DMR is faster. Don't get me wrong, Light Rifle may just be the greatest campaign weapon there is, but the DMR out-performs the Light Rifle quite easily in my book. Although this is coming from a Sniper at heart, so it's in my blood to have quick and good aim. I have come out on top of every 1v1 shoot-out, unless I had been 'naded, or if it was more than one person. DMR is crazy over-powered, I'd give it another shot if I were y'all.Anyways, just beat Solo Legendary (took so long.. stupid work, and weekend trip...). Honestly what a fun campaign. The second time through really just awed me at how amazing this game looks graphically, and just in general how fun it is. But if you guys are doing a BZP game night, let me know, I'm on every day after 5pm Eastern time. - Taka

Same, though I do hope that we get to hear from Stacker and Buck, it would be awesome to have Nathan Fillian back in the games.As some of you may know, I am also a Marathon fan, and when browsing around the dedicated Marathon Story site, I found some stuff about Halo, the early Halo. Most of this information is from 1999 to 2000, if any one is interested in reading them, they are quite interesting.Halo TransmissionsCortana LettersOfficial Halo BackstoryThe original intentions here are interesting, I also remember references to the Cortana Letters in Halo 3. Also Cortana appears to have had an email address among other things. It is cortana@jpl.nasa.gov.

Well, seeing as we don't know the true biological nature of the Precursors, it's entirely possible he wasn't lying. For all we know, Graveminds could merely be the larval stage of the Precursors. Not to mention, we've never seen a Gravemind that was actually a walking entity resembling an existing creature. The Delta Gravemind was merely a mass of rotting bodies and tentacles, but the Timeless One is actually an arthropodic creature resembling a Sea Scorpion. It's possible that the Didact's bias prevented him from seeing the truth...

Yeah I figured out the reason I kept having a hard time on the mission I was complaining about before (even after finding a good hiding place) was because everything despawned almost instantly. Even the turret I dragged over disappeared literally before my eyes!I find it truly vexing.~|ET|~

I am in love with the DMR, and the carbine again. Both weapons are amazing, but I wish the carbine was used more often. I've finished the first two Spops missions on Legendary, the campaign on Legendary in co-op, and solo Legendary. I absolutely hated fighting the knights. They were basically bullet sponges.The multiplayer maps, not including the Forge maps (Impact <3) range from bad to great. Haven and Longbow are my favorite maps, and Abandon is my least favorite.I managed to reach a 2.5 K/D with a 65% W/L. Of course, I used the DMR for over half my kills.The things that irk me are minimal:-Extremely fast weapon despawn times-Glitched killcams-And enormous hitboxes(and about my lack of comic sans, I switched to Linux and all the texts are basically the same)

@ TRE: The Ur-Didact was the first Didact, and he served as leader of the Promeatheans. However, during a political shakeup he ran afoul of the Master Builder, and chose exile. The Librarian manipulates a young Forerunner named "Bornstellar", and this Forerunner releases the didact and becomes exposed to some dark secrets. The Didact gives the youth his genetic imprint, and slowly the youth turns into a younger copy of the Original. As of Cryptum, it appears the Master Builder executed the original "Ur" Didact, but Silentium's description reveals that he survived alongside the Bornstellar Didact. As of right now, it's unknown exactly which Didact appears in Halo 4, but my personal guess is it's the original, as the terminals seem to suggest the more human-friendly Bornstellar died while activating Halo.
