In Halo 1 It really depended on what I was up against. Pretty much anything and the assault rifle was cool with me unless I was low on ammo. My favorite combo for taking down the Elites is to use the Assault Rifle with the Plasma Rifle. I use that to drop their shields with plasma and drop them with the Assault.

In Halo 2 it is more a matter of duel wielding for me. Preferably 2 Sub Machine guns with a Battle Rifle for back up. Though with the reworked shield system the shotgun and battle rifle combo is nice for alternating between flood and convenant.

I guess if I had to put it as everyone else did:

Halo - Assault Rifle/Plasma Rifle
Halo2 - Battle Rifle/Shotgun

Halo2-Sniper Rifle/Shotgun

Shotgun/Rocket Launcher, or Shotgun/SMG. Though it really depends on the stage

Oh man it depends so much on who I'm facing.

Halo 2 top three combos

1) Battle Rifle/Plasma Pistole (newb combo anyone?)
2) Sniper/Sword (Or shotgun)
3) Battle Rifle/ Brute Shot (one shot with brute shot...switch to BR...headshot game over.)

Halo 1

Going old school.

1) Pistol/Sniper
2) Pistol/Shotgun
3) Pistol/Launcher

I agree it all depends on which level you are on, but to be honest with you I use any weapons that are available to me, and I still finish the game, but some weapons are easier to control then others.
