Plasma Pistol and Pistol • Halo: Combat Evolved
Consider these two as a slightly more advanced one-two punch. The same principle behind the plasma pistol and needler combination applies here: drain shields with a charged plasma pistol shot then hit them with the pistol when they’re vulnerable. Only this time, instead of a tracked volley of needler shards, you need to nail a headshot. Sure, it’s a tougher shot, but - at least in Halo 1 thanks to its slightly overpowered pistol damage - your victim will be out cold.
