i don't like how you used to be able to whip out of a corner and toss a grenade real quick and now that process seems a lot more drawn out and not even worth it any more. also the grenades used to go *exactly* where your cross hairs were, that is not the case anymore. also you can't throw them as far.

fucking sucks, grenades are no longer cool and useful. they are a 5-5.5/10 on usefullness factor, where as they used to be a 9-9.5.

sucks


cant agree with this. ive been killing alot more people with plasma grenades in 4 then i have in 3. shits is too smooth in 4 just takes time to get used to.

My name is ASAC Schrader, and you can go fuck yourself.

also it feels like there is less emphasis on headshots, and its a lot easier to just 'spray' to get kills. you used to only see people use the BR now people are using whatever random shitty aiming assault rifle to get kills. It's a little annoying. I'll play for a little bit but this won't grab me and hold me like 3 did.

Who wanted halo 4 to be exactly the same as 3? I'm personally happy that one weapon doesnt dominate everything like the BR did 5 years ago. In regards to playlists, im pretty sure those will come.

Well the BR by itself didn't dominate, it took skill. Where as with the short range fully autos it's always a combo of spray + melee + hope you started shooting first. There is no skill in that. Sure the BR is powerful... if you can aim.

Also I 'didn't want a game that was the exact same. My biggest gripe is with the grenades and how they throw.

Also I want to know how I can get a bulltrue when someone is coming at me with a sword.... and still get killed by the sword.

I agree, the grenades could use a larger radius, but it dont ruin the game for me. Just think of more creative ways to get the jump. I mean, you do have promethean vision... or get more accurate with the nades. However you cant say the BR wasnt the most loved/all round best weapon to have with in most circumstances in halo 3. Most people were decent (Rank 30 and up) with aiming it.

i think the consensus with the maps is complex and haven are the best

i like how the plasma grenades bounce in this game. been a couple times when i'll one and it'll bounce and stick to someone's heel

also dudes are suckers for the hologram lol far worse than people were in reach

i was heavy into the Halo series up to 3, which was hands down the best Halo, then played reach and dropped it because it was disappointing. picked it up back at 4. Seems just more of a suped up version of Reach. It's not a bad thing but it's not really a good thing either. I wasn't expecting to be like Halo 3 that much but I was hoping for it to have that addicting/wow factor like in 3. I believe this game is more for the general public and new halo players. Simply put, there's not much skill to this game as there was in Halo 3.

THATS THE SHIT I DONT LIKE:
Grenades - radius isn't good. can't pick up from dead people. (w/o perk). promethean grenades are useless
Assassinations- i gotta wait for these whack animations to finish so i get killed in the process.
Ghosts, Wraiths- these shits got buffed like crazy.

I definitely gotta disagree with their being no skill involved. I consistently get 20-30 kills a game in infinite slayer while my friends I play with usually get around 10 and they definitely aren't as good as me. I think in every halo including 4, the numbers don't lie

as for the br, meh, the dmr seems more accurate.

they need to bring MLG playlist back tho


Grenades feel less powerful too and the 3 rounds from the BR burst spread out way more in 4 than they ever did in 3.


That's a good thing though, too many bad kids back in H3 used to be about that grenade and run up on you with the melee play style. They need to bring back shots fired like back in H2, that shit would show you who was a bad kid and who has really playing the game.
