Paegaas Workshop Spiker/Gameplay
From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
The Brute Spiker was introduced in Halo 3. It has a fast reload time, even when dual wielding, compared with the SMG. The Spiker's blades increase the damage of the melee attack only marginally to compensate for gameplay. However, rounds fired from the Spiker travel slower than SMG rounds.
