: If you decide to wander around for a bit instead of rushing, Cortana will
Funny, I've never stuck around long enough to hear her say any of that stuff. I'll have to try that some time.
: We're introduced to a weapon called the Needler
: We see a new enemy called a Jackal, which are not dogs, but bipedal
Not only do they break easily (at least as long as you're using plasma weapons), but Jackals always poke their left hand (holding the gun) out from behind the shield. If you shoot their hand, it stuns them for a moment, and they'll often expose themselves as a result. Punching them also works - their shields can't block your melee attack.
: The best thing to do seems to be to kill the groups of grunts and jackals
Elites may be your smartest opponents, but they're still kind of stupid. The reason the Pistol isn't much good against them is that it's firing bullets - plasma weapons are twice as effective against Elites' shielding. A good weapon combo to have is the Pistol + the Plasma Pistol. The Plasma Pistol may be semi-automatic, but if you work on getting a quick trigger finger, you can tap the button rapidly enough to work up a higher rate of fire than even the automatic Plasma Rifle can achieve. Combine this with the overcharge feature, the fact that the Plasma Pistol has a larger battery than the Plasma Rifle, and the fact that fresh Plasma Pistols are always ready at hand (they're probably the most common weapon for an enemy to be carrying in the entire game), and the Plasma Pistol is the best shield-killer in the game. Now add on the regular human Pistol, and you can swipe an enemy's shields and then follow up with a headshot in a matter of seconds.
