Battle Rifle ammo glitch

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

The Battle Rifle ammo glitch is a glitch that occurs when using the Battle Rifle in Halo 3. It happens both on Xbox Live games and on local games.


If you are firing a Battle Rifle burst, and do another quick action (like doing a melee attack or throwing a grenade), there's a chance only one or two bullets will be fired. For example, if you fire BR bursts until 24 bullets are left and then fire of a burst while quickly throwing a grenade, you may end up with 22 or 23 bullets.

This glitch occurs simply because the Battle Rifle cannot be fired while you perform certain actions, so if you perform one of these actions while the BR is firing a burst, the burst will not complete.
