Like all weapons in Halo, the Assault
Rifle has its place in your arsenal. Here are a few tips to remember while using
the Assault rifle.
- Never, ever use it in the Campaign
on Legendary against the Covenant. At the start of the level, get rid of it
as soon as possible.

- Aim for the head. Side by side

- Remember the Melee attack. By
shooting the head and following with a melee, I can get a kill in around 2

Rockets are bad news too.
- Keep moving. Hunt down your
targets and don't make yourself one.
Summary: Be aggressive with
the Assault Rifle. Shoot, spray, beat, and chuck grenades till your enemies
surrender. Reload and repeat. And have some fun.
