The VK78 has two fancy features, one of which is a fully automatic feature, allowing it to act as an assault rifle. The other is an optic scope capable of aiming 2x the field, allowing it to replicate a battle rifle as you fire in short bursts.


This makes the weapon extremely versatile as you can use the gun in medium and some close-combat situations while retaining a steady recoil. The gun is equally powerful when aiming from afar, with the decent scope allowing you to pluck off enemies.

But there is one downside and that's the 20 magazine capacity. Even though the bullets are damaging, there's no doubt you're going to need to reload, especially when facing foes head-on.

We'd recommend using the VK78 as a medium to long-range weapon due to its scope and deadly shots. The assault rifle feature would be best as an emergency measure, say if you're being ambushed by enemies.

The VK78 commando is sure to be a fan-favourite weapon throughout Halo Infinite's run due to its flexible nature. Along with the new weapon, why not familiarise yourself with the shooter's multiplayer modes and playlists?
