Ahhh the Needler. Arguably the most wanted weapon early on in Halo fandom. And for good reason; it was nearly impossible to miss with it! Seriously, what could be better than a heat-seeking needle shooter that you barely have to aim? Maybe if the needles exploded on impa-… wait, they do???
Many thanks to the Covenant alien engineers for making such an effective device, or maybe we should thank the grunts that were dumb enough to let it fall into Master Chief's hands. Wherever credit is due, each side of the Halo War had the needler in its corner. So whether or not you fight with the Spartans or the Elites, the needler is the first thing you need to complete your ensemble.
