Boltshot Nerf Breakdown – Halo 4 Title Update

For those that don’t know, the February Title Update for Halo 4 went live much earlier than expected. With one of the main focuses being patching/nerfing the Promethean Boltshot Pistol. The Nerf addressed the weapons 1-hit kill range and reducing it from a reported 20-25ft down to around 15ft.

In this video I’m breaking down the boltshot’s capabilities analyzing footage from before and after the Title Update and comparing the results.

I hope you enjoy and leave me your thoughts on the Boltshot nerf!
