Re: new quad bike

Actually I'm not sure. I think I remember seeing either a screenshot or a conceptual drawing for this vehicle, but I don't remember seeing any mounted weapons.

Re: new quad bike

The ATV (which is what I think you're talking about) doesn't have any weapons on it, but maybe the MC can open fire on his enemies while he's driving. Also, you can still run over those Covenant bastards with it.

You can shoot only with a pistol on the ATV

Re: new quad bike

actually, you can use any one-handed weapon on the ATV, which means the SMG, either pistol, maybe gernades, stuff like that.

Here's my source (direct quote):

"[the atv] Doesn't have any onboard weapons, but the driver can use the pistol or any one-handed weapon to fire straight ahead. Essentially, you lean forward and rest your gun on the windsheild. So at least you aren't completely defenseless like the driver of the Warthog"
OXM Magazine, June 03, pg 35

there. question answered.

Sniper rifles are NOT cheating...

Thanks for the citation.

Anything else interesting in that article, perhaps food for speculation?

sounds fun, but making donuts over covenant bodies with the atv will be even better fun!

Which is, of course, almost more fun than shooting :)
