Halo 4 Battle Rifle

Halo 4 Battle Rifle

The battle rifle is back and it is looking better than ever. The battle rifle, abbreviated as “BR”, is a 3-burst, medium range rifle used by Spartans. After making its debut in Halo 2, the BR became the go-to weapon for online play in Halo 3 following.

Controversially, the BR was removed in Halo:Reach and replaced by the single fire DMR (Designated Marksmen Rifle).

Many hardcore fans disliked this change as they had grown so accustomed to the 3-burst BR. Nonetheless, it will make its return in Halo 4 with a reinvented look by 343 Industries. With a new scope and incredible detail, this battle Rifle should prove to be coolest we have seen yet.

    Hi, the BR wasn’t introduced until Halo 2, your article says it was in Halo: Combat Evolved.

      Thanks for pointing that out, when I wrote the article I had the thoughts of some Halo 1 PC mods that I had seen.


    The battle rile is one of my favourite weapons in halo3. I was annoyed when it wasnt in reach. But fortunately it is in halo 4 so im glad. It looks really cool!
