Halo Xbox tip details

Needler, beware use against Jackals

The shards are easily deflected by Jackals in their defensive position (I mean shield up) and that it is essentially useless unless you can disable the shield with a smack or another weapon. Otherwise it is only useful if the Jackal can be circled or if you can catch them off-guard, although I think that once fired, the slow-moving rounds alert the Jackals to your presence.
