why is the needler back?

why is the needler gun back in HALO 2 (as seen in the 2nd MP screenshot)? barely anyone used it before... i always thought it was way too powerful so they tuned it down before they released the first HALO, and they tuned it down so much that it just sucked. obviously they worked on it coz it's back for HALO 2!

  • I never really used the needler very much, but when I did it saved me from a lot of trouble. And as much as Frankie has been talking about it, it autta be a must have in Halo 2.

  • I love the needler. It's SOOO funny. Sure it sucks, but if you do manage to kill someone with it, it's like bendinig them over and spanking them. Besides, in the campaign mode the needler comes in handy. :)

  • the needler is awesome. 20 rounds of pink death will kill almost anything. (o and by the way the most poisonous animals in the ocean are pink) plus it does damage to things around it when it explodes. i use the needler almost the same way i use the AR. you can lite up alot of guys with the tracking needles. gives you time to throw a grenade. when the needler explodes, at least in the campeign, all grenades explode that are on the ground. i think they should have that ability in multiplayer. i also think the needler should do more melee damage.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Duce11 They should make the needler rounds red this time. I dont know why they ever made them pink, it was kindda stupid, why not make them red?[/quote] Nothing more imbarrassing than dying in a big pink explosion! It makes killing people with needlers all the more fun! =)

  • You won't be able to see with all those needles sticking out of your eyes. I think it could be beautiful.

  • There's nothing better than laughing your a$$ of at someone that gets needled in Halo. Dual needlers? Sounds tasty. How about this as an idea though: When you melee someone with the needler, all the remaining crystals in your clip get stuck in the guy you're pounding on. Dual needler wielding whirldwind destruction, man.

  • I found the needler especially helpful against the Flood, mainly because the Needler rounds explode after impact. Really helpful against Flood carriers...

  • I don't know whaty you guys are takling about, the needler is AWSOME. There is nothing better then poping out and unloading a whole clip of purple niddle into someones back to then see them blow up. Hey, the gun may not be that intimidating but it sure as heck looks awsome (especially when they blow up). But they defiinitally are going to bring back every old gun beacuse everyone has their perks.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] SketchFactor Dude, dual Needlers kicks ass! [/quote]I'm guessing they don't loose their accuracy when they are dual. All other guns would but with the needler, it really can't.

  • I think I'll mention that I think the Needler absolutely sucks. What's this about it being useful in Legendary Campaign? Well, I've never found it useful. You can take an elite out in 2 shots on legendary, one charged plasma pistol shot to take down shield and one pistol shot in the head and he's dead. I'll use a needler only to prove that I can kill anything with any weapon, but it's definitely not the most efficient weapon. The only time I've ever found it good when I was playing my 6 year old brother, who doesn't know how to play halo and thus I could kill him with the needler easily.
