Assault rifle. Bungie really didn't do a very good job of making it worse than the H1 AR. You can now kill anything at mid-range with one magazine.

Really, is it that accurate and powerful? Sounds awesome, but i'm more of a Battle Rifle type of guy.

The Assault Rifle will guarantee you a kill with one magazine. It is also deadly if used properly, in terms of burst firing...basically, use it like a Battle Rifle and it's a lot more powerful than the standard magazine-kill.

However, the AR doesn't have the BR scope, which gives the BR its only advantage.

Best weapon, for me actually goes in combo's:

1) Energy based weapon + any other. This gives untapped firepower, meaning you'll technically never run out (so long as you don't overheat the energy core).

Best used as: -Covenant Energy Rifle + SMG/Needler/Mauler* -Covenant Energy Rifle + Energy Pistol/Covenant Energy Rifle

2) Dual-wielding full-stop. So long as you can control the recoil rates, more powerful than the Assault Rifle.

Best used as: - 2x SMG - SMG + Needler - SMG/Needler + Mauler* - 2x Mauler*

Then generic. I like the Carbine over the BR, as it's more punchy, whilst given the opportunity any day, I'd grab a shotgun(*) or a rocket launcher...because hey, they're just fun. Then again, Assault Rifle burst plus melee works rather nicely. Of course, if you're feeling rather brash, grab the sweet combo of a sniper rifle and Gravity Hammer/Energy Sword...sorted. If you're feeling REALLY brash...dual-wielding pistol's. Not recommended for the fate of heart, as it requires split-second reflexes for the head and quick firing, but...it might have lost its zoom since Halo 1, it certainly hasn't lost its power (really, it hasn't, same strength).

* means you need to be profficient at short range if intended use. If you don't like it, don't risk it.

The Battle Rifle's two advatanges over the AR is its ability to tap out the burst shots and the scope. Thing is, the burst can be bad as well. If you miss with the first one, it's likely you've wasted 3 bullets. The AR is far better at laying down fire, quicker, whilst the lack of a scope doesn't really stop you getting long range shots if you're an accurate shooter anyhow. '

Fundamentally, it comes down to taste. I just prefer being able to rattle out a good amount of bullets quickly, but that doesn't mean to say it's nice to grab the BR and overlooking two fighter enemies, take them both out and grab 2 points for me. Ah yes, 'kill stealing'. The victim's hate it, I lurve it. :p
