Industrial Strength , No Brain Required.

In term of efficiency during the battle, I'll vote for the BR for sure !

But the AR is cool tu use, particularly if you shot small bursts, and it looks great.

So, in Matchmaking I use the BR and in the campaign, I mix.

I dont know why the AR was even put into Halo 3 and Halo Reach because most of the time i find myself wandering around the map looking for a BR to swap with. As much as people disliked it in halo 3 im shocked Bungie actually brought it back for halo reach.

yeah how many years has it been since the fight started? 3. i dont think that its that big of a deal. the BR is amazing if you know how to use it. Same as the AR. learn how to use the thing or go find something you think is better. if you hate it so much, go play halo reach or halo cea. they dont have battle rifles.

I think that the BR is fine, and the AR is as good as should be. I personally think that the AR could use a little bit more accuracy, but it seems to be a formidible tool of destruction if in the right hands such as me and various others. Same goes for the BR, but I use both at the same time, for they are the most basic and reliabe weapons in the game and I am fairly effective with them.

AR:
Halo CE: Great all purpose weapon. Can own on almost any map in multiplayer, if the user is skilled. Works at close or medium range. Not very good in campaign.

Halo 3: Good in campaign, because of brutes replacing elites. Good in close range in multiplayer. Someone skilled in H3 AR can easily take down someone using a gravity hammer/energy sword, or shotgun.

Halo Reach: Next to useless in campaign on higher difficulties. Ok in multiplayer, but easily outclassed by plasma rifle.

BR:

Halo 2: Necessary in campaign, especially on higher difficulties. Can dominate in multiplayer, especially coupled with a good close range weapon like brute shot or energy sword.

Halo 3: Useful in campaign, but ammo is burned through fast, and there isn't very much of it. In multiplayer BR is a very good all around weapon, and it is highly recommended that one is maintained early in a match.

Spiritual Successors:

SMG:

Halo 2: In campaign, next to useless on its own, but deadly when coupled with plasma pistol/rifle. In multiplayer, very good on any close quarters map, though easily defeated by BR on any map with long sight lines.

Halo 3: In campaign, few and far between, and not as useful as in H2 because of the reduced focus on dual wielding. In multiplayer, a good substitute for the AR on close quarters maps, especially when used with a mauler.

DMR:

Halo Reach: In campaign, one of your essential tools, vital to playing through the campaign on any difficulty. In multiplayer, a true tool of destruction, though high rate of fire coupled with reticule bloom make it a weapon that takes some practice to use effectively.

Do I really need a signature?

I agree with many of the others, there is no problem with either of the weapons the br is good at all ranges and the ar for short to mid. So what's wrong with it?

Industrial Strength , No Brain Required.

For people asking themselves why they put the AR back in Halo 3:

Remember what Bungie said about the AR:

-We want the perfect respawn weapon.


That's why your default spawning weapon is the AR (easy to find, lot of ammo, average damage etc...)
If you want something better, just go for the BR.

Also I think the AR fits the Marines very well.

I diagree strongly. The AR has very limited range, making it less than ideal for a spawn weapon. I immediately switch to the pistol off of spawn.

Relax. I'd rather not piss this thing off.

The AR has its advantage up close but suffers in the distance, the BR has its advantage to med to long range encounters.

Hello Bungie,

I cannot access any user-created content on Halo 3. I cannot view, download or play anything that is user-created or off Bungie's Favourites. I am getting a familiar message whenever I try to access any user-created content on Halo 3:

-

NOT ALLOWED
You do not have permission to save user-created content on your Xbox 360 console.


-

I think this has been happening since 2008 or 2009 now. I'm not 100% sure why this is happening but I think it stared or may of stared because I uploaded someone else's modified map onto my file share, but still I am not positively sure when and why this has happened but for whatever reasons why this is happening, I do not deserve this.

I have contacted Xbox Support and followed all their solutions but still I have the same problem. They told me to post a thread onto the your forums but couldn't because I didn't have the option to post a thread and then I was prompted to post a reply.

Please help me and reply. Please fix this so that I can access and play all user-created content on Halo.
