AR is the worst weapon in halo 1, of course PR is better. AR has crap damage, crap accuracy, crap range. It's only good against flood spores where the plasma rifle is effective against all covenant enemies except for hunters.

AR isn't totally useless. You just have to shoot in short bursts. I usually just use a pistol but when they get too close i pop out the AR, burst fire on them until i get their shield down and then go full auto.

I think balance is more important. I prefer combining the plasma rifle with a bullet weapon, usually the shotgun or assault rifle.

What difficulty were you playing on? The AR is useless on heroic and legendary, it takes a full magazine just to lower the elite's shield. By then the elite would have killed you. This is on heroic and legendary by the way. I don't think I ever used the assault rifle for anything other then crazy assed stunts when I'm bored, like trying to kill a hunter on legendary using on a assault rifle.

Yea, like we're complete newbs to Halo and ur the master... If AR is that useful, why was this poll there in the first place? The AR isnt powerful in a bit, its accuracy sucks, and its power doesnt increase in short bursts. It decreases even more. Do you think this is your average sniping weapon? I go for Plasma Rifle, its somewhat good at bringing down health and most of all, the STUN. If there wasnt a stun, no one would use it.

Yes, the stun is great for MP games. Haha, sneak up behind, shields down before they've turned around..... need I say more?

yeah, and i find its better to use the PR because the way i use it(not in bursts or anything liek that, full auto) it nearly NEVER over-heats, but with the AR you always gotta reload after 60 rounds thats why i don't really like it, wlel one reason anyway, but if you look closely and fire fast enoguh neither AR or PR are accurate...
