Weapons Intro.: [WI05]
Every weapon in Halo 2 is unique. In terms of raw power, ammo capacity, speed and Range - not to mention miscellaneous strengths and shortcomings - each firearm is Defined by distinct characteristics. Due to the varied nature of the enemies you'll face, there is no such thing as the perfect gun for all occasions. Learning to equip the right weapon for the job at hands is half the battle.

Thing of your choice of armaments as a more involved version of the Rock Paper
Scissors game. A Plasma Rifle is great tool for destroying the shield of an Elite,
for example, but will be woefully underpowered if you're facing a Hunter;
similarly, dual-wielded SMGs might cut through Grunts like butter, but they're not
the ideal choice if you're facing a pack of Jackals. Generally, your secondary
weapon should provide you with options your primary firearm does not.

UNSC Weaponry: [UW06]
By the year 2552 (Military Calendar), human weapons science has undergone an
evolution, not revolution. UNSC armaments utilize technology first conceived
centuries before and are based on what is, By Covenant and Forerunner standards, the almost archaic principle of accelerating crude metal projectiles. Still: as the saying goes, "if it hurts, it works". While space born combat exchanges have invariably led to the decimation of its fleets, homo sapiens has fared a little better when given the opportunity to launch its latter-day spears at the Covenant solid ground.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A stripped-down version of the M6D Pistol equipped by the crew of the Pillar of
Autumn during their battle with the Covenant on Installation 04, the Magnum does
not have a scope - and therefore lacks the very feature that made its counterpart
so deceptively deadly in Halo: Combat Evolved.

The magazine of this handgun can hold 12 bullets and has moderate stopping power. In close quarters with a dual-wield configuration , it can be surprisingly
effective when employed against unshielded foes - not to mention curiously stylish. Over long distances, however, its lack of scope and modest magazine capacity renders the Magnum largely ineffective. It is also rather slow to reload, a fact you should take into consideration before opting to use it against large groups of enemies. It is, however, quite useful for placing exact headshots.

The SMG's strength is its high rate of fire. While individual shots are not
enormously damaging, its full automatic mode has led to it being dubbed the "bullet hose" by users in the UNSC. When dual-wielded, it allows the Master Chief to drown targets in a veritable torrent of projectiles.

The SMG has a number of shortcomings. Its accuracy is strictly limited unless used at close range. Furthermore, full automatic fire leads to enormous recoil, forcing the SMG's muzzle steadily upwards. You will need to compensate for this effect by constantly adjusting your aim. Finally, its phenomenal capacity for filling the air with lead means that its magazine can be depleted in what will seem like a
heartbeat. If there's no cover available to hide behind while reloading in your
current area, you may be better served by another weapon.

{{-B A T T L E R I F L E-}} [BR09]
____________________________________________________
| OFFICIAL DESIGNATION: BR55 RIFLE |
| PROJECTILE TYPE: 9.5MM |
| DUAL-WIELD: NO |
| DAMAGE: MEDIUM |
| RANGE: MEDIUM (WITH SCOPE: HIGH) |
| ACCURACY: MEDIUM (WITH SCOPE: HIGH) |
| RATE OF FIRE: MEDIUM |
| AUTOFIRE CAPABILITY: SHORT BURSTS |
| MAGAZINE CAPACITY: 36 BULLETS |

| SCOPE: 2X |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Replacing the MA5B Assault Rifle found in Halo: Combat Evolved, the Battle Rifle
was built with high reliability and ease of use in mind. With every pull of its
trigger the BR55 fires a burst of three bullets. It is a precise, clinical tool
when used by a well-trained soldier. If the SMG could be described as a brutish
cudgel, the Battle Rifle is more akin to a scalpel in the right hands.

The BR55's optical scope has a 2x zoom facility, which allows the Master Chief to
make accurate hits - even headshots - over greater distances than you might at
first suspect. Under most circumstances, the Battle Rifle's short bursts, long
range and average damage makes it a great all-round weapon, although it is less
effective in close quarters. That said, if you equip a Shotgun as your secondary
weapon, you can safely claim to be equipped for most eventualities.

___________________________________________________
| OFFICIAL DESIGNATION: M90 SHOTGUN |
| PROJECTILE TYPE: 8-GAUGE MAGNUM (3.5") |
| DUAL-WIELD: NO |
| DAMAGE: HIGH |
| RANGE: VERY CLOSE |
| ACCURACY: LOW |
| RATE OF FIRE: LOW |
| AUTOFIRE CAPABILITY: MANUAL |
| MAGAZINE CAPACITY: 12 BULLETS |
|AMMUNITION (ADDITIONAL): 36 (3 MAGAZINES) |
| RELOAD SPEED: VERY SLOW |
| MELEE ATTACK: FAST |
| SCOPE: NO |
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A weapon design that has barely changed since first conceived, the Shotgun is a
close-range firearm that can stop any creature, Human or Covenant, in its tracks.
Deadly at short distances, it is a weapon that even Elites should fear: it can
overload some shields in a single shot. With it, you can make aggressive charges
against foes, punching through flesh and armor before they have the opportunity to
return fire. It can also be, in turn, a great means of defense. When pinned down
under cover - or having ducked behind a corner to allow the Master Chief's shields
time to recharge - any Covenant soldier with the temerity to rush your position
should meet with a venomous rebuke from you M90.

Alas, due to the high speed of its projectiles, the Shotgun is practically useless
over medium and long distances. It should always be complemented by a secondary weapon that addresses this most salient of weakness. Additionally, the M90 is reloaded one cartridge at a time. During furious combat exchanges, it will feel as if you could grow a beard in the time it takes to load up - and that's just for female Halo 2 players. Every opportunity that you get, hide and perform a manual reload. Note that you can interrupt the process of loading the Shotgun by firing at any time. You can then, as you might expect, use the remaining cartridges.
