Whenever a new version of a game is being developed there are always certain aspects of its predecessor that make it to the new version, with weapons being an obvious choice. This is the same with Halo 4 because the Sniper Rifle is back and looks like it’s been on steroids, as it’s now bulked out a little.
This weapon was only going to make a showing in Halo 4 because the fans loved it so much, and while many aspects of it has remained the same, such as x2 zoom, 4 rounds per clip and also being awesome at head kills 343i knew that some changes needed to be made, so what better way to make it different than build it bigger than before?
It will come as no surprise that fans will react differently to this new version of the Sniper Rifle, the obvious negative will be the same with many of the other weapons from the Halo series, and that’s taking up too much of the screen, but you have to have some sort of trade off when dealing with such a powerful weapon like this.
When watching the video below you can just get a taste of how meaty this weapon is just by its sound, but there is a huge downside according to a friend who has seen the footage and that’s the fact that there is no recoil. Then again we have to remember that they are superhuman, so there will not be any recoil would there?
