The BR-55 is the favorite weapon of the Halo 2 veteran. Often considered the "new pistol", this weapon is highly effective at most ranges. Although a great weapon, able to kill in four bursts to the head, it's effectiveness is doubled when coupled with the plasma pistol, dropping shields with an overcharge of the weapon and then proceeding to fire one burst in the head. This technique is often called the "noob-combo", because many players consider it too easy a tactic and therefore, cheap or "noobish".
