One of my favorite strategies in an XBL game is to grab two Plasma Rifles. Most people view this as a weak combo, because plasma doesn't do much damage once the shields are down. This is because of the low rate of fire the Rifle normally has in fully automatic mode. But, if you keep pressing down the triggers as if the Rifles were Magnums and you wanted to unload them as fast as possible, you could match (maybe surpass) the rate of fire Elites have in Legendary, and decimate the enemy within five seconds, if your aim is good enough. If you do it right, the gun will overheat quickly, but there should be nobody to take advantage of that flaw. This is just a trick I wanted to show you guys, if you hadn't used it already.
The rifle in combination with the plasma pistol will always have a slight advantage as there are situations where a human weapon is needed at the same time.
In Halo 1 I used the Plasma pistol and the AR. Weaken the sheilds, and swiss cheese their ass.
This is just me, but i use the sniper rifle. That's all, i never cared for the crazy big gunbs. My style is to find a little place for myself, and take everydown with headshots, moving to a new position between kills.
mmmm sniper rifle...
Looks like a sound strategy.
Looks like one, but it requires shitloads of practice. You have to be exact in you aiming, have amazing reflexes, and be aware of your surroundings. The work is worth it :)
yea i got a buddy who can make mad kills wit the sniper rifle on XBL he can freescope like no other. i would know he showed me *cough* beat me down *cough*
sniping is easy, pretty much anyone on halo 2 today can headshot from across the map. What really pisses me off is the people who noob combo. Yes, the plasma pistol/ battle rifle combo. It takes no skill at all and is so easy to use, bungie should put a stop to it.
Speaking of dumbass bungie putting a stop to things, they said the last patch got rid of standbyers/modders. Well yesterday I was standbyed and modded in the same game. Bungie is full of shit and Halo 2 is a shitty game Halo 1 was way better.
There is no need to flame Bungie, there will always be people that will find ways around what ever Bungie puts up to stop them, and im sure Bungie is at least trying to fix things like this.
Now this topic is about "Dual Plasma Rifle Trick", and is not really the place for ranting of this nature, we have a whole seperate sub-forum for that.
