Rocket Launcher

It now has a small chasing ability. It wont chase you forever but it will be directed in your direction, so I suggest to be quick.

Pistol

The pistol now has no zoom, so getting headshots might be tougher. I also think it deals less damage. But it can detonate a fusion core with one shot (less than some other weapons, like the battle rifle) and can be dual-wielded, either with another pistol or some other weapon.

iv beaten halo 2

the pistol is now called the magnum, and it deals less damage but shoots ALOT faster. the rocket launcher is exactly the same but now has a lock on ability, so u can lock on to vehicals. there is no more assualt rifle, they turned it into a battle rifle that has a 3 round burst with a zoom. if a gun dosent have a zoom, u can still zoom in but with no cross hairs and u cant shoot in the zoom, its just so u can see furhter.

rocket launcher zoom

According to the manual, the M19 SSM offers 2x zoom, as in Halo 1, rather than the 2x and 5x zoom as in PC Halo.

Weapons were pwning

The weapons only were downgraded because they were too powerful. Having two full power pistols in your hands in Halo 2 is too much. Especially with all the new weapons, the game would have been easy, even for rookie players. So Bungies decision was a wise one.

weapons didn't change that much

I've been playing and messing around with the weapons and came to the conclusion that the pistol didn't change that much in power, its just the zoom and a slight decrease in accuracy.

They totally left space for halo 3

i've played and beaten halo 2 in about 12 hours and in the end they've left the most ovious space for halo 3, I kinda felt that they could of left us with alittle more to hold onto but the single strand of string that they did leave us with. anyone else have anything to say about that?

totally agree

I did it in less than 8 hours, I totally agree with you. I was so happy playing it. Then to end it like that made me feel it was lacking something. I feel kind of cheated.

I agree after the last level and the credits popped up I just thought "what the...". It leaces you hanging and you want to 'finish' the game.

I think so. It's just a question of whether the gametype, map and options support it.

Halo 2......

Not only the game just ending as it did. Then you have the part at the end of the credits showing Cortana, and that plant thing talking. So we not only need an ending to the game, but there are many questions left unanswered.

In campaign and pre-1.1 MP, yes

In campaign mode, and in multiplayer prior to the 1.1 AutoUpdate, yes, grenades were not as powerful as in Halo 1. They have received an upgrade in the 1.1 auto update.

down graded ?
k i didn't hear anything aboput weapons being downgraded but it is tru that the pistol sucks but i think the rocket improved by the lokin capability but in halo 1 u could kill a hunter with in=one missile but now u need two missiles. also the smg and battle rifles by me r a great disapointmen because i hate semi atomatic rifles and guns that shake around when u fire them the smg and rifles suck but the sword and carbine rule!!!!!!!!!! i beat a brute with 5 shots on the head with a carbine in legendary!!!!!!!!!!!
