How to kill an elite.

When you see an elite, take out a Plasma Pistol, charge it up, and then fire. The elite should then freeze for a moment and since it's shields will be out for a bit, this would be the perfect time to kill it. Take out your BR if you have one and fire one shot and that should take it out. You have to be fast though when changing weapons as it doesn't take long for their shields to recharge. If you don't have a Sniper Rifle, a pistol will do. Changing weapons fast can take time and you should practice this a few times in campaign/multiplayer for a while. It's not hard to master at all.
