    Silenced, looks more powerful and long ranged.



    The M7 submachine gun is gas-operated and magazine-fed. It fires 5mm x 23 caseless ammunition. Recoil from all but sustained fire is very controllable. Although the M7 submachine-gun is primarily issued to vehicle crews, it is also a favorite of commando teams in its sound suppressed version – the M7S.

    Sustained automatic fire tends to cause the muzzle to “walk” upwards as recoil compounds. Submachine guns, while not accurate over long distances, are particularly effective in close quarters.

    In terms of function, I didnt notice a single difference. Any difference seemed purely aesthetic (the silencer, the suppressed sound, etc.)

    I like it a lot, but the Pistol is the real star of this game

    EDIT: Forgot about the scope. Which is cool, albeit not completely necessary for the weapon, but cool nonetheless

    I noticed that the recoil was stronger in ODST than in H3, esecially when in scope.

    That would make sense. You aren't a Spartan; you can't hold the gun down as easily. Therefore, I'd assume that the gun kickback would be stronger.

    Yes, but for some reason they can run faster with a turret than a Sparten can.

    Spartans kick butt with style, let the enemy think they've got a chance.

    It's likely either the BR and AR will be removed or it will not be used as much, seeing as the new SMG can follow both roles.
    The new SMG also fits me, I prefer being stealthy, having control over my weapon and being able to fire at medium - long range.

    The BR will actually not show up in this game. The AR will but it won't be anything like the silenced SMG or the auto-mag. Oooo I cant wait for that auto-mag!

    It has been confirmed that the AR remains in ODST, the BR has not been seen anywhere in gameplay. I wouldnt be surprised if Bungie removed the BR, they probably think that too many people are crazy over it and have become too dependant on it.

    No shields, and you can't heal without help. I wouldn't suggest throwing grenades at yourself.

    i heard you take fall damage too, the campaign will have next to no replay value for me

    Just because it's different doesn't mean it will be bad, I think personally I'll like it much better than Halo 3's campaign gameplay. If they had regular Custom Games in ODST I bet I'd like that better as well.

    No BR=awesome. I ****ing hate that gun on multiplayer. Also, I don't think there will be an auto-magnum. Just a scoped and suppressed Magnum.

    I hope you guys know that ODST doesn't really have Halo 3's kind of multiplayer. It's just Firefight and a cd to play Halo 3's multiplayer. So the BR still exists in multiplayer and probably campaign.

    You just wrote period after a period with another period behind it...
    I'm pretty sure the BR is still in multiplayer, campaign i don't care.

    Once you get to wave 99 in firefight they should automatically take away everyone's weapons and give you all BR's with infin ammo. And those would be the only BR's in game. The best weapon of all.

    I don't think we actually need the BR with the new pistol and all. I think that's how the magnum should have been, and we should never of had the BR. Seems a bit more correct to me, dunno why.

    Ontopic: In matchmaking I am now constantly rushing SMG and only taking one, with sometimes putting a magnum as my spare to practice for Halo 3: ODST.
