You can make the game easy or hard if you want, Halo is about knowing what works and what doesn't. Skill and knowledge is required. Not rocket science though.
Human weapons are ineffective against shields, unless it's a shotgun or rocket launcher (obviously).
5 shots take down a shield with a BR, DMR, and Pistol.
Plasma weapons will eat a shield almost instantly. The exception to all of this is automatic weapons like the a.ssault rifle.
It's been like this since Halo 1, the Pistol was OP though. 3 shots was a k!ll.
The multiplayer being stale and repetitive, though there are armor specific abilities, weapon drops, and new weapon mechanics (scatter shot bouncing bullets)? C'mon, are you even trying to be objective here?
The core gameplay is still Halo, from the very first to this one. What else is there for somone to nitpick about?
Clearly you're ignorant of the series' gameplay and you choose to criticize. Whatever.
