Also, it should be noted that in the 8 min. demo at last year's E3, altough the player reloaded the battle rifle, his HUD was not visible. Hence, nobody knows the capacity of the clip in the new battle rifle. Same goes for the new SMGs. Throughout the entire demo, not once did the player reload those bullet hoses; and keep in mind that master chief got the guns from a wounded corporal who, more than likely, had already used up some of the ammo.

Your mission in the Destiny Beta is complete. Your next adventure begins on September 9th, with the official launch of Destiny.
Sure the Battle Rifle looks like the best thing since sliced bread, but something tells me there will be some limitations put on it. Right now it is just too good. It seems to be an all in one Super Weapon. And as we all know, the most important part of Halo is the awesome weapon balance. Yes, the battle rifle will kick ass, but I think our expectations are almost too high for it. [Edited on 4/15/2004 9:34:07 AM by weresnail]
