Barely anybody used Auto Rifles before that because they were worthless. If Bungie have nerfed Auto Rifles across the board instead of just re-balancing the Shingen/Cydonia (or simply the rate of fire), that was a very stupid decision. It means all Auto Rifles will be even more worthless than they were to begin with. And they were pretty damn worthless to begin with. I truly hope they've re-balanced them on an individual bases, but knowing Luke and his 'odd' decision-making, I doubt they have. Say goodbye to the Auto Rifle everybody, because you'll be breaking every single one down into weapon parts. Junk. Total junk.
