"I have no words that would do justice to the atrocities you commit to the English language, as well as your continued assaults on the concepts of basic literacy and logical reasoning."

Due to the incessant amount of spam and repeat posting about the topic of the design of the Battle Rifle and the Assault Rifle in Halo 3, all threads about these topics will be locked on sight and the author warned (then banned if they keep doing it). Please discuss the BR and AR and your thoughts in this thread and this thread alone.

For reference, Bungie's response to all comments and complaints about the design of the Battle Rifle can be found in the weekly update for June 20th, 2008.

People expecting further Bungie responses on the issue are likely to be disappointed.

I like the BR just the way it is.

I really don't see what's wrong with it.

i think it's really the all purpose gun as its got good accuracy and an ok rate of fire, although in campaign i tend to use ar more.

Why are so many people complaining about the BR spread? I don't see a problem. It's not my top tool of destruction for nothing.

The BR is fine the way it is. I don't understand why people complain so excessively about it.

  • 07.01.2008 10:49 AM PST

See Other Side

My thoughts:

*The BR was designed with strengths and weaknesses.
*The weaknesses were added in to offset the strengths.
*It takes skill to use the BR like JonnyOThan said.
*The BR is as effective as it was designed to be.
*Bungie DOESNT have to fix the BR because it is the way they want it to be.

So, if you don't like the BR there is one real simple solution.......................Don't Use It

that's a good idea.
i think everything's fine with br's. who cares about a spread that nobody but progamers recognize?
learn to play with the new br everthing will be fine.

The name is Super Eagle

This account is my warm up account and is what i usually play on to just have fun. So before you go around thinking im garbage hit me up on my General account FFA EaGLe

Still don't think Im good? 1v1 me I dare you

The BR takes skill to use now. And everyone is gonna have to deal with it

  • 07.01.2008 10:51 AM PST

im fine with the BR. I never had dropping bullets or spread problems. Even if i do, i hardly notice it. I just use it when i need to. If it drops bullets, oh well. Spread? It's only a game. I don't see why everyone complains.

The BR was ridiculous in Halo 2. Random spread and a lack of instant hit detection have made it so that the BR is not a one man killing machine in Halo 3, but instead a weapon that requires practice and skill to use.

I dislike the BR spread because it just adds a randomness factor to it that I dont like. I like having to lead your shots though because in halo 2 when the BR was a hitscan weapon anybody could 4-shot easily now its a little harder so it easily sets apart the players with good BRs and bad BRs.

And replace it with what? The Carbine? Oh yeah, you can't start with it, nice one Bungie.

  • 07.01.2008 12:12 PM PST

Real men use magnums.

Please, don't change it bungie! The update to the BR in halo 2 ruined halo 2 for me. It became the only weapon anyone used because it could kill at all ranges.

  • 07.01.2008 12:14 PM PST

It seems their is more people whining about winners.
I personally think the BR needs some tweaks, and less randomness, I like the old days where when I fired at their head 4 times they died. Now it seems to be random.

I don't have a problem with the BR either. I think that it is balanced out right now while still being a "semi-power weapon". it dominates in midrange (18-20WUs) practically because it's the only weapon that is really designed for that range. especially since carbines are only found on a select few maps. however, even on Snowbound where there are/was a mix of the two weapons they both were successful at that range. you have to be a pretty damn good sniper to beat a BR wielding opponent at 18-20WUs.
