So apparently the SMG in Halo Wars is going to be a lot more powerful than the weak, seldom used one we are used to in the Halo series. I was happy when it was taken out of the default weapon in Halo 3. It’s worthless and makes it even harder to gain a step on those small maps when the other team has all the powerful weapons. SMGs made it impossible to overcome this.
It’s also getting an appearance change. If the images I have seen around the net are true, it looks pretty intense. Granted, Halo Wars in general will be a bad game, I like the additions they are making to the game. Hopefully, this carries over to a potential, Halo 4.
