Master Chief is still MIA to me
who is that character in the OP?
Never explained AFAIK which bugs the shit out of me
If you're going to make the most annoying, gameplay interrupting shit ever that makes you slow to a crawl every 5 feet at least give me the courtesy of explaining how it's possible
Worst design choice in a Halo game ever? Maybe.
>freezes enemies in place
>if you jump forward during them you gain ditch them by a few metres
>Worst design choice
I say the Worst design choice in a Halo game ever was making a core Halo game where Chief is only playable 20% of the time.
Does Warzone serve a purpose other than farming commendations? It hosts the most brain dead players I've ever seen in any Halo game. These people just rush head first into enemy fire and die over and over again. Every game I'm able to get 10 kills just from my AR by crouching in a base and watching them just run into my sights.
I'm almost certain you could accomplish every commendation with ease by just playing warzone. I don't think I've ever gotten 20+ kills by just riding in a ghost the entire fucking game.
Are you playing objective?
If so, you're a good player.
Are you playing killcount?
If so, you're shit and you're being carried.
Mainly objective, probably two thirds worth of my games have been Team Arena. And by shit I mean like, 1.03 K/D, not truly shit I suppose. I'm having games of Slayer where I absolutely destroy it and then some where I go like 5 and 10.
Helps one of my mates is insanely good, yeah.
God! So I'm not the only one whose had this problem?!
I thought I was going crazy!
Trying to aim onto peoples heads, but it just felt like there was such resistance trying to "lock on" because my aim felt like it was slowed down so much.
I really hope 343 fixes this. I've died so many times because I can't aim quickly enough.
because its part of the learning curve.
its hard to wrap your head around when youre familiar with shooters like CoD and Battlefield, where the aiming mechanics are different (the way the thumbsticks control and are utilized is very different)
Im becoming a broken record.
People need to (re)learn how to aim with their Left thumb stick. They need to learns how maps flow and to work on their dexterity instead of slamming the sticks to the max when they try to aim.
At first I was butthurt and now Im blowing peoples heads off with perfect kills.
Im probably contributing to their butthurt for never letting them get a chance to practice. ....they should do a legendary run solo.
Kill yourself my man.
I beat every Halo on legendary solo in 2 days in prep for Halo 5, which I also played on legendary solo.
The aiming, online atleast, it's bad. I don't want to be aiming slowly and then really quickly. I either want to be aiming slowly the entire time, or quickly the entire time.
I play with 10 sensitivity (though sometimes go down to 7, 8 or 9) and in 5, it's just a complete clusterfuck of having to fight the enemy while you fight the controller while you fight yourself to control the aiming to fight the enemy. It's fucking stupid.
I shouldn't have to "relearn how to aim" because they decided to put in some really dumb shit to make the game less playable.
> "relearn how to aim"
halo is a different game from the others. in halo the look sensitivity doesn't drop when you ads. I'd love for it to be as fast as CoD, but halo is all about precision headshots and teamwork (i know you know this already, or at least you should). Even if you could look around super fast, you will still be spending 2-3 seconds firing at the same person probably why some pros play on low sensitivities. they know where to shoot and can do so accurately. i think players need to get used to aiming with both sticks and to only push the sticks over halfway instead of maxed out.
(a lot of left thumbstick work)
:3 my base
2 Warzone games gives approximately enough points to get a silver, and rarely go past the Warden fight at around 18 minutes. Assault games can last significantly longer than 6 minutes.
Really, Assault is only good if you want to get Bronze packs quickly. Regular Warzone gives you more time to rack up commendation progress, too. I hardly ever reach past level 4 or 5 in an Assault game.
>in halo the look sensitivity doesn't drop when you ads
It always had at least a little bit. Having the same aim speed with a more narrow fov would be jarring as fuck. I tested out a controller in a UE4 project I'm working on with a similar zoom system to Halo, but the stick sensitivity didn't scale down while zoomed and it felt absolutely awful.
I'll be on most of today while I try hitting level 60 lads! If any of you form warzone parties throughout the day just toss me invites.
S m h t b h f a m
if it is dropping, its very slight. I hardly notice it.
Though im comparing it to CoD where 10 is light years faster than 10 in halo, but when you pull the left trigger it nearly halves the sensitivity and when pointed at an enemy drops it even further. but since those games are 4 shots in 300ms to kill, and tons of aim assist, its ok to have ridiculous sensitivities. since all you need to do is snap on target and spray in the general direction.
The aiming is bad in Halo 5, get over it.
I understand completely that moving while aiming is also how the game is played, and I do play that way, but it makes no sense to have the aim be the way it in 5. It hasn't been like this is literally any of the other games, so why fuck it up and change it for 5?
It might be ok if it was a better aiming system, but it isn't, it's shit.
Hopefully they include an option to change it back to the way it was, or just change it outright.
Am I the only one that doesnt feel anything different from the usual aiming? I still don't know what about aiming is so fucking terrible in 5
>>So why does Cortana want to take over the universe?
>We don't know. Most likely an after-effect of Rampancy.
Most likely it's the Precursors trolling us with misery and death again.
Didact ain't dead. He was composed. Which makes me wonder how he'd play into the new "Created are the masters" deal.
You've got a point over Jul though. We get Elite bosses in Warzone and they couldn't even have a fight with a slightly-buffed-shield Jul? Missed opportunity.
In the Forerunner Saga it notes that the Flood are corruption incarnate. They find a way to infiltrate and infect everything they come across, one way or another. Didact even mentions that the light of the stars seems different from their incursions (though he was pretty bonkers at the time).
Let's get a Warzone group going

Speaking of the b-net, does Halo 5 have heatmaps like 3 and Reach did?

>get scorpion cert around 10 or so
>they're still rare drops, so I need a silver to have a shot at getting just one of them
>REQ level 6
>by the time they can be spawned, the match is over
It's not so great. Now Fuel Rod Cannons? Those are the shit.
Was wondering the same thing. It's such bullshit that isn't a standard weapon choice from the get go. Fuck i hate this game. I know I'm the only here that thinks it, but mp in halo 4 was 100x better. The req system is a fucking giant piece of shit. Fuck this shit game.
>can people ride in the back?
>is there any benefit to the scout hog?
>he doesn't know
Level 1 req.
Most of them have heavy armor.
Driving around a base in circles can prevent/prevent loss of capture.
Most enemies will drop everything to shoot at it, since Halo fans are conditioned to shoot vehicles.
No gun on the back means people riding on top can't block shots, so having ~5 people in/on one scout hot isn't uncommon.
>decided to buy 3 bronze packs when i've been buying gold packs all this time
>carbine cert, storm rifle cert and scout hog cert
>people choose not to buy bronze packs
You have to be patient and work your way up. Otherwise you'll get a ton of shit you could have just gotten in lower-tier packs. Fill out everything before going for the really rare stuff.
>>starting with silver
>pay for high tier shit at high tier prices

You were suppose to bring balance to the req packs, not leave it in bronze
I can't tell if you're upset or overjoyed.
I'll go with overjoyed, since you have attained what is best in life:
splatter your enemies, drive before them, and to hear the lamentation on the forums.
From my point of view, it is Silver packs who are evil

I know you think this makes sense, but it doesn't work that way. You'll make more money with RNG Boxes, every time.
It's a fucking shame, but it's preying on human nature/weakness.

>Make the game faster by leaps and bounds

GENIUS! It's like the game is in permanent swat mode. Fucking idiots and oh before I forget
>Spawn in tank
>Take a minute to get to combat area
>Someone randomly shows up, blows you up in 1 seconds because LOL U CAN'T GET OUT
not being able to get out of the tanks in warzone is 90% of the reason I rarely use them.
Scorpions are useless for anything but a 10-man armored push, and wraiths can kill people with the boost or evade niggas, but otherwise it's just a death warrant.
I have it set up to where i can switch what TV plays what.
excuse the mess, its an old picture anyway
Tanks feel very feast or famine; I'll sit outside a base a short distance away and get 5-15 kills.
Or, I'll spawn it, someone will fly from behind, pop a grenade in, boom, gone.
Sprint+Slide+B-thrust and Low Radar make shit a bit brutal.
But then you'd not have improved shields, which probably are better in normal combat.
Link me the file so you don't have to keep embarrassing yourself like I did in this webm
But also note how good it looks for 19 seconds
You can become a webm god like me if you learn from here
It's because they balanced radar around top level gameplay, expecting everyone to do callouts
And callouts ARE NOT for everyone, fucking 343 man.
Halo 3 had 50/50 competitive casual balance imo
Halo 4 and Reach had like 80/20 caasual/competitive balance
Now Halo 5 is like 35/65 casual/competitive
It needs to just be 50/50 again fucking hell
I don't understand how so many people on other teams spawn endless tanks
Meanwhile I just rotate shotguns saws and the random weapon packs seem to rotate needlers railguns and shotguns when I call I the most common ones
5/12 FOR WARZONE
MESSAGE FOR INVITE
If the reason the radar is limited is for mlg pro call outs then well, do that in a very specific limited playlist then. They already have bonuses to boost the radar distance I guess so how hard could it be to do that for playlists.
Not at my Xbone at the moment, does that 3.5GB update add any content or meaningful changes, or is it literally just a patch?
40" Dynex LCD I got 4 years ago.
Planning to get a 55" 4K TV this Super Bowl since the week before is the best time to buy TVs in Burgerland.
No I bought it just to own it. The pieces that I remember from looking at the back are a warthog, a monitor, and an energy sword; railroads are the Scorp/wraith and pelican/phantom and all the color sets are a fun theme (halo wars planets, Mac stations, halo rings, earth is boardwalk and sanghellios is park place). My girlfriend and I have decided that we cannot play monopoly together anymore because it "hurts our relationship".
>people that look at your own hog turret and shoot and grenade the shit out of you instead of getting in
How do I tell my ISP that 2 minute long disconnects every hour or so is unacceptable?

Has your combat ranking always been based around wins? My friends are all onyx level and I basically tag along with them when they play. Because of this I'm at a Plat rk2 and holy shit am I bad. I think I'm like .5 kd right now. It should really be based off skill or smething other than "win". I feel sorry for those guys that have great kds but get matched with shitters like me who bring the team down.
Here you go senpai.
I was lazy so I used paint last night.
Do you use comcast? I've had the same issue a few years ago, and they recently started again this week.
I had the Indian support guys actually hang up on me because nothing was wrong, so I had to call and ask for a manager and actually send them logs that would show my ping spike to like 2000ms + for periods of 20s-1m.
I'm still fucking pissed that they refused to believe anything was wrong, I don't even care about being right, but I do care when I can't stream 4k porn
iunno about tonight, since I have some work. I sent you a msg though
buy bronze req packs. Im not sure if you will be as lucky as i was.
Originally I was only buy gold and silver getting ugly armor with wear Teal accents, but no weapon variants.
Yesterday I bought a bunch of bronze and now I have a silenced BR and AR. as well as a few common weapon certifications i was missing. I also got 2 armor abilities, 1 that recharges my shield faster and one that keeps my radar up.
>guy jumps into my warthog
>kicked for betraying him
If you jump in front of a teammates warthog it isn't your teammates fault you got ran the fuck over.
I honestly don't get why betraying people is still a thing in Halo. It was pretty nice in the beta where people couldn't betray each other but 343 abandoned it for some reason.
Like all betrayal kills end up either be accidents or people trolling both of which could be avoided if friendly fire was turned off.
You don't even know my suffering. I have a 4.3 kd in slayer and I'm stuck at gold 6 because of randumbs going 2/10 and quitters.
I wish my old halo friends bought a xbone/didnt die
You can teamkill with vehicles still in warzone for some reason because damage from that on teammates. Which is fucking dumb considering NOBODY looks to see if there is a warthog, ghost etc going past.
anyone who isn't within 5-10 meters of you look choppy
colors are washed out (probably because of all the "candy spartan" shit during the beta)
many textures look muddy
I think Halo 4 looked better
I have Canadian internet, last time this happened I literally had to tell them which kind of modem/router to get me so I could troubleshoot it myself and fix the problem.
That problem was present for 6 years before I decided to fix it myself.
I'll probabaly have to do it again, becuase my gave me a random "Arris" router. Fucking pricks can't give a 7 year member a router with a user manual or a recognizable brand name.
Mine ended up being a problem with the actual wiring in the apartment, they replaced my outlets and it hasn't happened since
You could have had the same problem.
When it comes to comp issues a lot of us quickly forget, or look to it as the last option, the actual physical components of our equipment
The FOV for someone running around is much smaller than when you're in a vehicle. There are some retards that run infront, but 9/10 I get blind sided by something due to how small the FOV is.
True that is the main problem with Halo now, 343 can't strike a balance. Reach & 4 were made for casuals, Halo 5 was made for competitive. Halo 6 needs to be like Halo 3 & favor both camps instead of pushing the others out.
I'm laughing pretty fucking hard right now.

>keking the red team's core when they're in the lead
Hey, you're not to blame for taking advantage of the enemy's bad luck, but WOW 343 WHAT THE FUCK.
>>mfw I can't make webms
I-is this okay, senpai?
There needs to be a system that, if your REQ dies/you die before getting a single kill, you get the card back once the match ends.
I seriously can't wait for blops3 to come out and take the shitters away from this game.
It's impossible to play arena alone without running into quitters or shitters who can't do better than a .3 k/d
I love slayer and I can't even play it without a group
>I can literally stand on top of Red Team's garage and just wait for their good shit to come rolling out before jacking it.
And I thought maining Active Camo in Halo 4 was bullshit.
You mean taken with your kinect/double tapping the guide button?
I always feel bad when that shit happens. Like, the dude just lost a legendary card because 343 hates everyone.
Here's a shorter version. I like how, when the scorpion rolled out, you had to do a double-take just to realize what the fuck was happening.
Where can I go to see the Playercount for Halo 5 Multiplayer?
What in the almighty fuck is this helmet?

Tfw have a shrink appointment.
Little excited I am working through my extreme social anxiety by shooting the shit with you guys. I know you probably don't think the slightest about it but you should know there's been a person among you who loved every second with you. Winning or losing. Thank you. Thank you for nonstop talking about fecal particals and keks. Thank you for everything.
I wish I was home playing halo now ;w;
What needs to happen, especially in arena, is to not let players spawn with grenades. Would drastically reduce the grenade spam plaguing it right now
I'm fucking tired of eating my retarded team mates grenades
Just git gud and avoid them. Not spawning players with a grenade is like not spawning them with a good weapon. It's a retarded idea that only scrubs think will improve the game.
Dying to enemy grenades is fair, even if it's 5 of them being thrown in a hallway.
Dying to my teammates who threw a plasma on my head is fucking dumb. Dying to my team mates promethean grenade he threw at my feet is fucking dumb.
Just don't go fucking Orwell on us.
Apart from that, yeah man just have a good time, it's always cool playing with you guys and hearing about your adventures and stuff.
Slayer alone? No idea.
I've spent a decent amount of time in Arena.
>Get Nadir Emblem
>These commons still not unlocked
Oh yeah? Well this picture says otherwise.
Anyone in the UK having connection issues?
Lagging in Warzone and dropped out of 3 Warzone games. Booted up MCC and played a fair few matches and its fine. I have great internet, looks like a problem specific to Halo 5 for me. I don't want to keep playing if its going to keep returning me to the main menu and I get fucking banned
