My friends and I all agree that the auto rifle is OP in pvp. It's simply way stronger then any of the other primaries right now. I believe this is partly because the maps are catered to short range engagements. I saw a noticeable improvement in my scores in the crucible when I switched from my trusty, fully upgraded, pulse rifle to a crappy auto rifle I had never used before. In my opinion the game would greatly benefit from the auto rifle receiving a slight nerf, maybe so that it has more recoil? Making the auto rifle more difficult to use would help the other weapons compete in multiplayer.
