So...Just tried the DMR in Halo 4.

How can one say this thing is not OP? Its EASIER to hip fire then the carbine. And can be spammed easily.. Even if an AR could kill faster then it, this damn thing is the new "utility" weapon. Anyways Flood, lets discuss 343...Do you think they will give into pressure and nerf/buff certain weapons? Or will they just ban us for complaining?

  • I would normally agree with you, but I've had too many games where I'd be using a DMR and get easily outshot by a BR even if all shots connected.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] chronicaddict420 Light rifle is a 4sk Dmr is 5sk Dmr is not OP, its overused.[/quote] It's range ruins map movement as moving risks being shot accurately from more than halfway across the map. That being said, I still use it. =/

  • I still get beaten by the carbine when using DMR. Fortunately I don't encounter it much. SAW can beat DMR at medium range though.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] The 7th Taco The only weapon I have to complain about is the suppressor. It's just not strong enough. Other than that, everything else is pretty well balanced. I can't understand why people see the Boltshot as OP either. You already have a secondary weapon that can disable vehicles! And you're calling a pistol with terrible accuracy and a "shotgun" blast that's only useful when your target is 3 feet in front of you overpowered? But hey, It's your opinion, and that's just mine.[/quote] Balance in a fps is not an issue of opinion. It never was, never is, and never will be.

  • It depends on how game breaking the DMR is. If the masses resort to it as the god-gun, then it [i]may[/i] get nerfed. However, I don't see it as being an immediate option.

  • Honestly, I just feel they should reduce the rate of fire a bit. Would make it a lot more balanced and be an easy fix.

  • Utility weapons are a poor decision in general.

  • No. Shut up. We need an all powerful weapon just like the BR in Halo 3. I think I have found that weapon in the DMR.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Onca Rapotee Some of you people still defend the DMR huh? I USED it with my own hands, degraded myself for a good few matches. I beat everything with the exception of some DMR users. Now that said...I kinda want answers on how me and this ONE particular DMR user got in a 1v1 (I am using storm rifle) And my shields pop before I even get his shields half down. We both started to fire at the same time.[/quote] I'm not as anti-DMR as you, but I agree the Storm Rifle deserves to be much better at shield-stripping. It's a plasma weapon for christ's sake.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] chronicaddict420 Light rifle is a 4sk [u]while zoomed[/u] Dmr is 5sk Dmr is not OP, its overused.[/quote] The DMR doesn't change it's firing mode when zoomed, it's still the same when you fire from the hip, while the lightrifle is absolute garbage when not zoomed. DMR still beats it for being the all rounder.

  • I will never understand peoples fanboyism towards the BR. It's not the main go to weapon like it was in Halo 2 and 3 anymore, get over it. How about you all use the weapons as intended to. BR- Close to mid range DMR- Mid to long range [Edited on 11.22.2012 7:43 AM PST]

  • DMR long range BR close range That's how it ends up in a fair battle. I almost have the DMR commendation maxed out because of how much I use it.
