The Battle Rifle is a UNSC affiliated weapon. This weapon was first introduced in Halo 2 as a replacement for the Assault Rifle. It is an ideal weapon for medium, and sometimes long-range battle due to its three round burst and its considerable clip/ammo capacity. Taking a minimum of four bursts to kill someone, it is arguably the most efficient all-around weapon. It is the starting weapon in all MLG gametypes and one of the most used weapons in the game.

[edit] Halo 2

Halo 2's version of the Battle Rifle was a bit different. In essence, it was overpowered. It's accuracy was higher, the burst rate was faster, and it was an instant hit weapon (meaning you wouldn't have to lead your shots at all). There was also a few glitches associated with the Battle Rifle in Halo 2, including "double-shooting", "BXRing", and "BXBing". All of these took skill to perfect, and were commonly used by high-leveled players. The glitches were even allowed in MLG Pro Circuit tournaments.

[edit] Tips

A basic tip for the Battle Rifle is the four shot. The four shot is the least amount of shots you have to put into an opponent to kill them. To increase your chance of a four shot, aim for your opponent's head or upper chest. Another, arguably easier way to get a four shot is to shoot for the stomach area for three of your shots and then aim for the head for the final shot.

[edit] "The Update"

This is just something I want to add to this as a history marker more than anything else. When Halo 2 first came out, it was v1.0, obviously. After about 6 months to a year, there was an update released that fixed some issues with the game, reset all ranks and altered some minor and some not so minor things about the multiplayer game. The reason I'm putting it here is because the Battle Rifle was one thing that was altered in a not-so-insignificant way. I preformed a test myself, and before pre and post release and the results were shocking. The Battle Rifle, before the update, could be shot from one base on Midship to the window above the adjacent base and the spread would be about 15cm after firing an entire clip.

After the update, however, the same distance with the same amount of bullets from the exact same spot would produce 1 bullet hole. Every shot would land in the exact same spot with laser precision.

My point is that before this "update", the Battle Rifle was a rifle that took skill to master. After it however, the Battle Rifle became a laser guided lead launcher that anybody could use.
