Halo 4 Sniper Rifle "Looks Like A Tank"

Remember when you first sniped a grunt in Halo: Combat Evolved? Felt good, right? Well, the fan favourite is back for Halo 4. But has anything changed?

Well, it still has four rounds per clip, it still has x2 zoom and it's still one super powerful headshot machine. The only difference is it now looks like a tank!

It does obscure view a lot when your not scoped in, levels the playing field a little for those pesky no-scopers lol.

Looks bad ass though!

Sounds meaty too! I love the way 343 Industries has beefed up the audio on classic UNSC weapons. Can't wait to try it out for myself!

crxss1864d ago

eh... i don't like it. not a huge fan of that scope. i don't mind the sound but i don't think they "beefed" it up, it sounds completely different.

BattleAxe1863d ago

Looks like just another Halo game to me. Its hilarious how there is absolutely no recoil on that gun. The new haven for noobs lol

SixZeroFour1863d ago

@battleaxe - no recoil and no auto aim, just as it always has been...far from the "haven for noobs" you speak of

I love it. I've always liked Halo, but too many guns just feel like they're toys designed by Fisher Price and they just lacked a certain punch. It's nice to see a focus on some beefier weapons.

I'll miss the visor, as it always made the Halo sniper rifle feel iconic, and scoped view looks a little too busy, but the heft and sound of the weapon is nice.

Halo 4 will not be touched by any other exclusive i am afriad. Halo is a beast exclusive.

YodaCracker1863d ago (Edited 1863d ago )

Certainly not in sales, but we have yet to see how it will match up in quality. I have high hopes for 343 Industries, though.

Recoil? Lol your a spartan a super enhanced human why would there be any recoil hes mega strong.

I think I can deal with the exterior look, even though it looks as if there's an old nintendo with wires on the top, but I hope 343i removes those two arcs that are fixed around the reticule when you're scoped in. They seem a little extraneous and distracting.

Looks awesome but that line is blocking the barrel : /

CoLD FiRE1863d ago

Why? just why did they make it so that you can't move after the game ends? That was one of the subtle things that made Halo...Halo. Removing such a thing takes away the fun of celebrating by shooting each other and throwing grenades everywhere after you win the game. I hope they bring it back in the final version.

As for the Sniper Rifle, by far it is the worst looking gun they showed for Halo 4 and its sound is atrocious. I really hope they fix these things.

Brownghost1863d ago

That's not a big deal and doesn't affect me

JKelloggs1864d ago

I like the look of it, the sound, sounds too bleak and tinny. I really like the hud of this, with the score on the bottom right. Can't wait for this.

tigertron1864d ago

I prefer the original if I'm honest. =/
