How to Use the BR75 - Precision Rifle
Basic Stats Overview
|Precision Rifle||36||Regular Bullets||x1||N/A|
The BR75 - Precision Rifle is probably the second most frequently used weapon that you will encounter in Halo Infinite Multiplayer. If you intend to play mostly Ranked Arena games, it will be the only weapon that you spawn with for each round. The main reason why it’s the default weapon for the more competitive Ranked Arena games is that it relies much more on precise aim and accurate tracking of targets than it does on the more spray-and-pray approach of the MA40 AR. If your aim and movement skills are strong, you can come out on top of most firefights with this weapon regardless of what the enemy is wielding. It will take only four bursts of fire to kill an enemy who is at maximum health and shield capacity. However, this is only if you can make the fourth shot a headshot. If you hit the body on the fourth shot, the opponent won’t die unless they’re hit again soon after or die from explosive damage.
Strengths of the BR75
Although headshots are important for the fourth and final burst of fire on an opponent with the BR75, you don’t need to aim for the head for the first three shots, at least if you begin the fight in a scenario where your opponent has a fully charged shield from the beginning. This is because the first three shots inflict damage to the energy shield, so even if you hit the head while the shield is active, you won’t get the damage multiplier that you get from hitting the head of an opponent without the shield. As a general rule of thumb, it’s a good idea to familiarise yourself with the visual effects which indicate when a shield has been “popped” (or destroyed). Whenever you see an enemy with a popped shield, one accurate burst from the BR75 to the head will kill them instantly, so it should be easy pickings so long as your aim is true. This makes it easy to keep track of exactly how much damage you’ve dealt with the weapon, and what is needed to finish the enemy off.
Weaknesses of the BR75
The BR75 is a fairly versatile weapon which shines in mid range fights where you can make use of map features between bursts of fire, but you may find that it struggles in some short range fights. This is because the burst fire creates a delay between shots, and if you’re overwhelmed by multiple opponents there just isn’t enough firepower to dish out in a short space of time. The best way to remain as effective as possible in short range fights with the BR75 is to make use of alternative weapons such as grenades and side arms. You should only need to use these when you can’t put out enough fire with the BR75 in a short space of time. However, if you don’t have access to any other weapons, you’ll have the best chances if you try not to panic and maintain a steady aim, since consistently accurate aim is rewarded with the BR75 perhaps more than any other weapon.
