Just because it hasn't been seen in any pictures doesn't have me believing it won't be in Halo 2. I'm sure it will be, but I am interested as to what changes have been made to its over all balance.
I think most of us will agree if you only had one choice of weapon for Halo 1, it would be the pistol. Is it unbalanced? Ultimately, I think it was, especially compared to the alien weaponry. PErhaps that's why we love it so much. So I'm asking, what do you hope the changes to the pistol will be?
