Title: halo reach - slayr headshot?
Post by: ABigDeal on 08:57 AM - 08/28/10
I didnt participate during the beta, anyone know if the replacement rifle for BR does single shot head shots in team slayer modes?

Pistol was a 6 shot weapon i think

Both magnum and DMR are five shot weapons.  Four body and one to the head will earn you a kill.

By single headshots, do you mean in SWAT?  If so, yes.  All you need is one bullet to the head to kill.

The Needle Rifle is a better weapon, though.
It's an seven shot weapon, but it shoot much faster and has smaller bloom that resets faster.

I think ive read somewhere that the pistol is a bit weaker than the dmr (which would be more logical but w/e)

yeah but its really powerfull compared to other weapon
id rather use the pistol instead of the assault-rifle (from the two start-weapons)
a good aim and you win over a dmr-user within seconds ;)

Here's from a previous Bungie Weekly Update:

Bungie Weekly Update

Here's a teaser: The DMR and the Magnum can take down a fully shielded Spartan with the exact same number of trigger pulls.


And from a podcast not too long ago:

The DMR and Magnum shoot the SAME type of rounds AND can BOTH kill a fully shielded Spartan in as little as 5 shots. GG.

Magnum = Mini DMR.  The only thing that keeps the Magnum from being the DMR is its range.

The Magnum also shoots faster than the DMR, and has a different type of bloom.

Of course id rather use the pistol than the ar. After playing the beta i was always using the pistol in team slayer in H3 ;D

But with the updates since the beta:

Magnum was too quick to get a kill and they thought it might need some slowing down(it would rape the AR and I don't think they enjoyed that, for some reason bungie has a hard on for the AR.) and the DMR got a bigger clip.(something like that...)

Also they fixed something about headshots(hit scan was off.), they said it wasn't working correctly during the beta and you should see better results when lauched.

On the a side note, no scoping with a xim is awesome. Bet it will be even better with a xim3.

They slowed it down 1/10 of a second.  A "hair", as they called it before.  ;)

And about fixing the hitscan; I think your shots actually went out of the reticle.  Glad they fixed that.

The AR also got a slight damage boost since the beta.

It used to tak 22 bullets to kill, but now it takes 18.

pff screw the ar
its the worst of all, cant understand why someone would pick it

bungie has to increase the pistol once more, so that its at the strength of halo 1 again
the ar is just random allowing you to do nothing except on really really close ranges :/
halo 1 all the way =)

pff screw the ar

I love the AR.
Actually, I love that the AR replaced Dual Wielding.
Got I hated that in Halo2.
Yet it's funny how in Halo3 I'd pick up a set of guns now and then, and go to town sprayin & prayin.
Glad it's gone though in REACH.

Is anyone here even going to choose to carry an AR, when you can have a DMR & Magnum instead?

Maybe, as a last resort.  It's pretty hard trying to aim while having AR bullets spammed in your face.
