Why is the Halo community so shit?
If he takes down your shield for taking the sniper, put one on his head.
If he destroys your vehicle. Kill him.
If he tries to push you down a ledge, punch him in the back untill he dies.
An eye for an eye.
It's funny because 99% of the time, I'm better with whatever weapon they're trying to steal from me than they are.
They'll waste 3 rockets on one single enemy, or they'll waste 2 mags of the sniper trying to kill one single enemy then die.
Everyone's a baby. Also power weapon hoarding.
>let friend play as P2 on guest account

This happened to me at least 50 times.

>Follow him around lowering his shields to 0, he gets killed by enemies a lot, does the same to me until he accidentally kills me one time
probably because the people who you hear say it for the most part are speaking the truth.
They are comparing themselves to someone dumb enough to kill their teammate for a weapon because that's the only thing they apparently can have fun with. I feel like people who lower themselves to a hissy fit over wanting the play with only that weapon are pretty shit tier.
you mean friendly fire? not having it is casual as fuck, are you saying there's no FF in 4? garbage game. Anyway, in H3 online people would rarely actually kill you since it can get you booted, they would just damage you until the enemy killed you, or annoy you to the point you killed them and they could boot you.
That anon is correct. Tribes 2 is the apex of competitive team based objective oriented shooters, in large part because it used a loadout system.
It also had field deployabe loadout stations as well as the Mobile Point Base on larger maps
HALO was literally the beginning of the dumbing down of team based shooters
HOLY SHIT THE RAGE

That's what I do because not many other players shoot at it.

It never got old. Too bad invasion is dead now.
Customs are still fucked too.
Any time my friends try to join, they're unable to, and if they finally get into a lobby, they disconnect quickly.
I seriously didn't think 343 could fuck up this hard.
I don't know what to tell you then, you are going out of your way to argue about how you get raped by banshees, and then say you have more important things to do than take out banshees. Consider call of duty?
I rarely saw this happen without good reason.

Fuck you, Scott. No one liked you.
>Halo 3 kiddies who complained Reach was shit then just went and played MW2 and Shit Ops anyway after the title update
fucking this, Nobody played halo 3 after Mw2 came out.
so when halo reach came out not many people gave a shit.
so sad, had more fun with reach than halo 3 in non-custom games
I'd just let the retard have it because I assumed he'd make it more trouble thant it's worth, and then they'd attack you for picking it up 20 minutes later from a fresh spawn, like them 'calling it' meant it was theirs for the entire game.
>go to cousin's house to play xbox (I only buy sony consoles)

Man those were the days.
Damn it felt good to do that, I'd pick it up just because I was out of ammo and get buttpunched for it, so I'd leave them one bullet and drop it on the ground. Listening to them stand there yelling powerlessly was the ultimate turnaround
If you don't take out the banshees then you and your entire team get killed constantly. If you camp in the banshee spawn the no one else on the team completes any of the objectives.
Even if it's just slayer on btb it's impossible to get near the spawn because people on the other team are already always there.

Kinda like the last time I used the Scorpion in Reach. Fucking teammate grabs the rockets to kill me and destroy our tank because he didn't get it first.

I guess not, then. It was fun while it lasted, Bungie.
fug, that was so much fun. the innovation of people to create these multi stage L4D style maps, damn man. I remember there was a massive boom in the distance when one of them started, and then when you came around the first corner you'd come to the source; a downed helicopter burning in the street.
OH SHIT. you just reminded me of old HBO, goddamn I spent so much time on that site, reading shitty halo themed comics and delving into all the crazy lore speculations. the lore archive even published some of my ramblings on the hunter hives, though I think they became retroactively defunct with halo 2.
>just found my old Bungie.net profile

Nothing more fun than pissing off faggots that take gaming so seriously.
>My K/D was 3.4
Breddy gud, I've got 3.9 in 4 but that game is too easy.
I think you dropped your fedora back at leddit.
People do it because they are better than you and don't want you to take it and die with it.
People do it because using a vehicle is fucking gay as fuck if it's straight team slayer. CTF on BTB is another matter.
People do that to fuck with you.
You're the common problem here, stop being a fuckup loser faggot and learn how to get fucking good.
>>>Climb in a vehicle, guy shoots at you and throws grenades damaging the vehicle to the point it's safer not to use it
Vehicles go off your own health. Damage is just cosmetic.
People enjoy games in different ways. Calm down sperg.
>all the screenshots I had
>almost nothing published
and why is it that no games have an indepth 3d viewer of this caliber? if fucking xbox could do it, why can't I watch my matches from any and every angle in any PC shooters?
halo.bungie.net, search your gamertag and you may find it. going through my shit now, tragically most shit is tied to your account so I can't view most screenshots or any videos I saved.
Mastodon. Probably uses melee more than most. Coloring is kinda edgy, but not gaudy.
Utilitarian, but flashy. Vivid coloring makes for an easier target, but armor and add-ons provide functionality. If CQC shoulder were on left arm (side usually facing enemy), would have better protection.
Rule 63 Jun with black/blue coloring. Streamlined, minimal customization. Likely low endurance, so best for short, fast ops.
I used to play Halo 3 custom games with this guy d4rkphant0m every weekend we were broze. Didn't know him irl but he knew so many people who would host numerous full lobby custom games all day long. Man, I miss it
>Probably uses melee more than most
dat hammer tho
and I was actually going for gaudy: hazard warning colours. I'd wish wash between yellow and red with the orange primary
>spartan green, minimalist pauldrons, no flashy bullshit
How about if the damage dealt to you by teammates and the damage dealt to you by enemies was measured differently. If a teammate lowers your shield by being a faggot, it doesn't affect your enemies. They still have to lower your "enemy" shield. Obviously it would need to be explained or simply glossed over as without an in-game explanation.
This way, teammates can kill each other and be penalized, but they can't damage you and put you in a bad position before encountering enemies.
>custom games in reach were so fucked that someone actually hosted a custom games gamertag just to organize them through
>mention of it became bannable on the official forums because it was "exploiting" somehow
then it might as well be FF-off, except that your team can still kill you. the potential to put your teammates in a bad position requires you to think, and makes for higher level play. The system is not the problem, faggots are.
>earlier reach infection
>survivors can kill eachother
>tfw killing teammates trying to camp in the tunnel
and then the custom maps were added and things stopped being as fun
I played a decent amount of Halo and I can't remember FF from guns really affecting anything. Only from rockets, grenades, and vehicles. I don't remember ever accidentally lowering any one's shield or having my shield significantly damaged by a teammate. Did that happen?
This was the only reason I played Halo. People made the coolest shit. The amount of crazy racing maps were the shit. I remember back when people voluntary played zombies out of team slayer in Halo 2.
>you can look up heatmaps for your individual play for each map
is there any FPS that has as comprehensive coverage as 3 and reach did?
I guess I'm a little confused but what people were clamoring for for a LONG time had been a custom game lobby where you could freely share shit, and there was no way of easily doing that except by arranging each one painstakingly with people you gathered by asking them to join your party in the main lobbies or just by knowing them from having previously done that.
how come yours and mine are so much bigger than all the others itt. making the mark IV helmet look gud though
yes dude, but in most gametypes a single bullet from anything but a sniper would not kill shields so it was much less noticeable unless someone was actively trying to kill you.
>I guess I'm a little confused but what people were clamoring for for a LONG time had been a custom game lobby where you could freely share shit, and there was no way of easily doing that except by arranging each one painstakingly with people you gathered by asking them to join your party in the main lobbies or just by knowing them from having previously done that.
Wouldn't the File Browser accomplish this? And if so, you were probably thinking of 4, the File Browser didn't work until 2 months post launch.
Yeah, I realized after posting that your Spartan would probably be GOAT with a hammer.
I actually got your Spartan mixed up with the second guy.
Thanks for the complement. In games with gear choice, I usually avoid gaudy colors and go for utility over style, but without completely disregarding aesthetics. That goes for RPGs too.
I think when a piece of shoulder armor leaves a gap between the piece and the bicep/tricep it makes the spartan seem skinnier than they actually are. Also, if you pick a female spartan you look like a seleton.
I was actually talking about the images themselves, but I did consciously bulk my spartan >>275564691 up as much as possible via gear combinations. Having a big fat bright orange fuck chasing people with a hammer was just 2gud, it's like being the juggernaut all the time.
Well shit, I was hoping to post all the screenshots of my maps. Oh well at least I have the memory of all the good times I had ;_;

Schadenfreude was had in copious amounts on Halo 2 and 3.
there were some skilled drivers in that game when they wanted to be though man
>lines up to make sure you have the shortest and most protected run to the flag when you jump out
>run back with it, swings past just in time
>whips the ass around, causing the passenger seat to be relatively still in front of you long enough to get in, without having the vehicle actually stop moving
Looking back I could have made a much better looking character.
Nice color scheme however the shoulder placement makes no sense in a combat situation.
I didn't check their corpses specifically, but yeah, the Marines used that helmet with a clear visor throughout lots of the game, especially the bits in space. The guys who offered you the ride on the pelican at the end of the campaign also wore it, and so it showed up again in H1A.
I just wore it because of my fond memories with it from the beta.
I remember deciding that I was going to the piloting/driving service ribbon in the MP. I got to be a slick fucking warthog driver. Got to convincing some buddies of mine to fully load up a warthog on Hemorrhage and after a few early errors, we got to the point where we'd routinely rape both the enemy hog and wraith and then dominate and practically farm the spawns, covering the enemy hog and wraith spawns when they popped up.
I imagine we made people very unhappy
Of course I didn't remember to actually attach a damn picture. Why would I?
I think the most exhilarating times I had in 3/reach was kicking ass in rocket race while micspamming speed metal. going from the mongoose to using a full size hog was pretty jarring, but I learned to make the fucker dance just as well in time.
>doing that on the edge of the spire
I actually enjoyed Reach multiplayer before it became flooded with shitty fan made forgeworld grey n green maps.
What was Bungie thinking? I stopped playing for like half a year and come back and there's a trillion maps that all look the same which I have no idea how to navigate.
Sword Base was actually a fun map fuck you all.
>Sword Base was actually a fun map fuck you all.
it was a spectacular weapon. baffling at first, but so rewarding to get good with. I loved playing invasion just to get to where I could play with the Pro Pipe and bust vehicles just for fun.
>tfw used to have so many friends could almost fill up an entire custom game lobby of Reach
>Used to play non-stop custom infection games
>Also sometimes we would divide up a team in forge, we'd set a timer for 10 minutes and both teams would have to build a base somewhere on forge world and there would be no fighting until the clock hit 0 and then both teams would just try and take over each other's base

>tfw this will literally never happen again
I was pretty shit at the game but fuck man forge base wars was some of the most fun I have ever had.
>Entire team crammed into that one little room.

>Respawn, head straight back to the room and do it again.
It was such a dumb map but it was fun times. I prefer those kinds of maps to the really open ones.
Sword Base was great for team swat too.
>Bait them into killing you
>standing around the teleporter with your dicks out, taking turns tossing grenades in

sometimes I'd tag a sticky nade to their back on the way up, and hope against hope they'd die before it went off. worked like a charm if you didn't get booted.

>K/D has gone down to negative and my spartan is now just Master Chief

What are the odds that after the inevitable disappointment that will be Halo 5 Microsoft hands Halo over to someone better? Any team that can't even get a 1st person shooter right doesn't deserve to be in charge of anything.
>Someone would always forget or not bother to force spartans
>Always 2 or 3 elites standing head and shoulders above the rest

Playing Halo 1,2,3, and Reach is the most fun I've ever had sitting down. In terms of pure enjoyability, they're the best games I've ever played. I hope there's a Marathon reboot that is just as fun.
What pisses me off is they fucking know that shit shouldn't be in Halo, in all of their vlogs, even for Halo 4, whenever they talked about new features they looked like they were trying to justify why they put it in, and it almost always just amounted to "We couldn't think of anything else so we though 'fuck it, lets tack that in, too'".
>How do they not understand?
Oh boy, you weren't there for the team interviews.
They went out of their way to hire people who loved CoD but hated Halo with a passion, in the name of bringing "innuhvashun" to the series.

I thought I was such a cool guy for refusing to use the AR, even in AR start variants. I'm glad I stuck by it, though. Even on my shitty Brigadier account.
oh man I forgot I had PESTILENCE
so much time and effort just to become a swamp-ass
>Halo still has basic problems that decent shooters solved ages ago
Grifball was good for that, though it was unranked only. How I had 13 multikills of 5 or more in ranked, I'll never know. I do remember getting a Killamanjaro in a Lone Wolves game of Juggernaut, and I'm actually gonna try and find that clip.
:C I just got lucky I guess. you're picking it from the sidebar under the file share header, rather than actually clicking fileshare?
>Took shitloads of pictures and videos
>Never uploaded them
I can still remember this firefight game where I accidentally stole this guy's kills for like a solid minute.
It was hilarious how you could see the frustration growing.
How? I pefer playing on a handful of familiar maps rather than a bazillion identical looking fan made ones.
Forge maps should never have made it into online playlists, they all fucking sucked.
pestilence was the anti-inclement weather, it was like taking the piss and doing the opposite of trying to look cool.
I was really amused by this guy trying to sneak up on me with that flaming head.
>Sweet BR/DRM fag tears when you kill them with an AR
Christ, I was so autistic in high school. This was only meant to be a compilation of some of the stuff in my File Share, but came off really tryhard-y. That fucking Limp Bizkit song (I never even listened to them) and Windows Movie Maker editing lel. That Extermination in the MLG playlist is still cool though.
Funnily enough, you actually need teamwork in Halo sans Slayer
>Capturing the flag by yourself is suicide
>Have to go there in a Warthog (or mongoose), with two other people
>The driver needs to make sure he gets you there safely, and is able to pick you back up quickly and safely

>The gunner needs to fucking shoot everything to make sure you don't die.
Too bad 343 thought that giving you a gun while holding the flag was a good idea, and I think you mvoed faster, which sort of breaks the point of the teamwork.
oh man I forgot about this, they had this before facebook.
>guy getting shanked in the face is named TAYKIN IT
lol all my old screenshots are just goofy shit, I'm so glad I was never a tryhard. idk how you could ever be serious about a game this brightly coloured and bouncy
