>it takes forever to recharge
>nobody uses it
Good job 343. It should've been like Armored Core-style boosting.
Vanquish style movements wouldn't work. If it was like Armored Core though I could see that being effective. Basically like the jetpack in Reach, but capable of strafing too.
You can do CUHRAZEE things, it just takes skill.
Doubt it. The majority of El Dewrito's development has just been "they probably will."
if you're not using boost to your advantage I don't think we are both playing the same game
>literally just breakout in a mantis
I just realized that the launch of halo 5 has created a huge rift.
There is no more theorizing, no more mystery. Just wondering if we get a new map or 2 next month. Damn the hype train!

Why you gotta hurt my feelings like that?
I just tried to make the map as close as possible to the Halo 3 version I played all the time. Still need to fine tune things like so you can splatter people, and how explosive grenades are though.
>using the word cuck in every sentence is fun
You're that autist we played with who caused everyone to leave the party because you wouldn't shut up about your weird fetishes and your dead friend. Just stop.
That guy is such a faggot. What was his GT?
>obnoxious lets player style screaming
>"doood i watch pron in class LOL xD"

>"im r9k incarnate HAHA!"
It IS better to unlock bronze first.
You can get common stuff out of the way and then just unlock uncommon and and rares in silver packs.
After you are done with silvers, you only get ultra rares, legendary, and mythic stuff in gold packs.
God fucking dammit why didn't 343 add in a feature we could control the individuals of our squad? It's becomes a pain to see blue team flop around with almost no fucking control besides "aim around there"
Sounds reasonable enough I guess, that your warzone playtime or full mp playtime?
These inspired me to go find the kid.
Is this him? -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etwRppCa3bg
If so, holy shit this kid is a fucking retard in every possible way imaginable.
Map is fine. Gametype parameters are horrendous.
The match he was talking about
His service record
He has over 10k multiplayer kills
But only 200 in slayer 1k in SWAT and in other gametypes not more than 80
Im pretty sure he is boosting his KD in btb
I have never gotten as much hatemail in my entire xbox live career as I have gotten from Halo 5: Guardians alone in the past three weeks.
I have no idea what changed or why it's like this, but holy shit people are fucking cancer on this game.
I just don't respond.
Really? I played Halo 3, Reach, 4, GoW 1-3, every CoD, and I didn't get shit at all from anyone.
Even at launch on H5, I didn't get any hatemail. Rewind three weeks, I got an autismis maximus messaging me "bkkkkkkkkkkkkkk" and all this hateful shit cause I had a better K/D than him. It has been going on since...
but it only marks them if you shoot at them, doesn't it?
Shit I've only ever actually marked someone by shooting at them because I never waited long enough to see it take effect. That is stupid if you genuinely only have to look at them.
>tfw I get a perfection with a banshee on guillotine
Cortana/Mantle would assimilate the Reapers
So planets would be policed by both Guardians and Reapers, and those who step out of line would be even more fucked.
Yeah ark is p cool but fuck getting it on xbone that will be hell
Get it for pc if possible and go re-live the memories of ye old aqualads
>get last two achievements

>SIX FUCKING PEOPLE on the enemy team drop everything and take turns ducking in and out of cover while trying to send someone to flank me every few seconds
I lived, but...Holy shit.
Fuck you Jesus I'm not dealing with this bullshit.
Seriously, is there any other AAA game RIGHT NOW, that is so lazily put together? I honestly didn't think any game could top Halo 4 for how fast the downfall was...but Halo 5 is beating it. Simply amazing 343
What a bunch of shit. I dominate games and I haven't gotten any hate mail. I even teabag people. What am I doing wrong?
>playing slayer solo with no fireteam
>have diamond rank
>my whole team gets bukkaked one game except for me, I hold my own
>invite the enemy players so I can be on their team
>they're pretty good but annoying, we start winning a lot
>however I'm a really good player in 5, usually coming in top every game
>guys on my team are screaming callouts constantly throughout matches
>I'm pretty quiet but still coming in first every match
>literally come in first every match we play
>team mates get mad at me for not saying callouts often even though I'm wrecking every match
>they keep haggling me for not screaming callouts every game
Why can't people just be good at the game mechanics and not stress themselves over callouts? You can see your team mates triangles if they're engaged in battle...it's just stupid how obnoxious people are.
>mfw some guy just used a Spnkr Prime on my regular ass banshee in warzone assault
I'm not sure if I should feel honored or be laughing that some guy spent a shit ton of money to unlock that thing and ended using it on me.
Can I get the Locke armor without the gamestop pre order? Googling about it just shows mixed answers from before Halo 5 came out.
Believe me man, I really want that Mark IV and the upcoming Mark V, but honestly I'll never unlock either because there's so much armor unlocking it and grinding is going to take YEARS
So whats everyones favorite forge maps so far?
Andy's Dorm is fun as hell
And i really do like the Chiron version i played last night
oh my god that dorm map is giving me ut2004 feels
i cant even begin to remember how many different giant maps i played on in social servers, especially for onslaught and monster mash's custom invasion. pic is an onslaught map set in a kitchen, called ONS-kitchencounter, where a tank is about the size of a saltine cracker
wish the forge was big enough to let us build stuff like Halo Custom Edition's Hang 'em Even Higher
>Still no update on what the January update will have
Tell me about it. I just got the assassination yesterday (and I got the nice try one a few packs earlier), and it's probably my favorite out of the bunch.
Invite pls, if there's an opening
Are there other armors and helmets similar to the Rogue Cutthroat armor in that there are large sections of multiple other colours that are visible in multiplayer matches?
To be more clear, the Rogue Cutthroat armor has white and gold on it, which stays white and gold when you're on the blue or red team. What are some other helmets and armors that are similar?
I got Liftoff the other day and I personally think it's the best one. Depending on where you are on the map, it can be hilarious to send Spartans sailing off a ledge, or down a set of stairs.
This is the worst one you fuck
Here's one. Want the rest of them?
>Yield once again proving he's the worst person in /hg/
Not even surprised.
Tell me about it. I'm in a fuckin lobby with him
>guy goes 2-15
How can you be so bad
I would upload a screenshot but I dunno how to get it off the xbone
>wait he's silver not plat
Fuck sake, randies are fucking awful
nothing will stop the fire from rising, hotheads
Not even a furry desu
Yeah but we lost so I can whine more than them
I'm like an abused housewife with this game. I'll die in some bullshit ways in some matches, rage like crazy and declare it the worst game ever, that Halo is ruined, 343 are hacks, etc. Then when the match is over I queue up another one.
>just lost 1000-185
So, serious question: how do we fix the balance in Warzone when teams are stacked?
Double req spawn time for a team if they're losing by more than 500 points? Or cheaper reqs?
>Still no action sack, still no infection, still no pregame lobby interaction, still no file browser, still no dedicated social slayer
>ranked playlists don't require mics in a communication based competitive focused FPS
Come the FUCK on 343i, it's the CURRENT YEAR and you can't even simply copy paste what bungie did back in '08.
Fucking standard, lads.
I have 100,000 req points, should I just get 10 golds or 20 silvers? I don't have all uncommon or rares yet, so I was thinking just getting 20 silver so I can get more guaranteed ultras from golds, but if I get 10 golds, there is a chance I might get some ultra rares or legendaries right now.
>Take a break from Halo 5 since around Thanksgiving time
>Log back in today to see they finally added Forge
So what's everybody's opinion on it so far? I didn't see a file share, what's up with that? Also is the multiplayer any better?
Inner deadzone 15%
Outer deadzone 0%
When I'm aiming at someone farther away I almost always overshoot my turning. I'm trying to figure out a way to counter this.
Have we done anything more with that WW1 map?
So does anybody here do any moddding/works on el dewrito?
Looking for a certain pre-release build of halo 4 that has the revenant that I know a few of those people have, there's no good screenshots of it online, just shit quality screencap from youtube videos so i'd like to be able to make better quality ones.
halo is pretty much the only game i play anymore so i was thinking about buying some gold packs to make warzone more fun / dank skines. but i don't have all of the silver shit unlocked yet. is it worth it or no?
>tfw 343 fumbled when it came to showing more of the Chief's personality
>We will never get another shortstory where John interacts with that Marine with the picture and get a chance to talk to her
>343 will never not fumble Chief's personality in game
We coulda got something meaningful, but no, we got the whole 'Are you man or machine' thing from Cortana in 4. Damnit all, I know for a damn fact she knows that's not the case.
Halo 5 isn't that bad dumbarse. The campaign is shit I agree. It could've been done better desu. The multiplayer however is quite nice but there are still some issues they need to fix, like hitboxes and providing the game modes we love halo for. However it's still quite good.
You're just a mad casual who gets wrecked constantly.
I bought $100 worth of gold packs and I unlocked a ton of good shit. You can definitely get lucky, you just have a higher likelihood of getting uncommon/rare perma unlocks if you haven't maxed out your silver packs yet.
Stupid people like the guy that replied to you >>127400057 are unable to be objective. If you open a gold pack, you will pull stuff like scorpion certifs, sword wraiths, spunkr rockets, etc. Your perma unlocks might not be optimal, but you'll still get good REQs.
The people that say you should max silver packs are OPTIMIZING their permanent unlocking journey. That's it. If you want to optimize your likelihood of not pulling uncommon perma unlocks in a gold pack, spend a year unlocking on silvers first.
If you feel like you might like to open some gold packs, you probably will. It makes warzone WAY better because you can burn a sword ghost/SAW/sword wraith/scorpion/mantis/banshee literally every time you die. I personally think it's worth it for you bud.
>If you want to optimize your likelihood of not pulling uncommon perma unlocks in a gold pack, spend a year unlocking on silvers first.
>If you want to optimize your likelihood of not pulling uncommon perma unlocks in a gold pack, spend a year unlocking on silvers first.
People in these threads try to imply that your gold pack is wasted if your two perma unlocks are uncommon dude.
"optimizing" a randomized system will save you time and effort ONLY if you plan to unlock everything, which, the vast majority of the time, is not the case
>tfw will never get to show off John being the caring, but not fully understanding hyper-lethal cinnamon roll he is
The dude is such a fun character, full of potential. He doesn't understand undisciplined civies, but still is all for protecting them. I'm actually disappointed that the whole aspect of 'Cortana did what she did for John rather than humanity, while the Chief does EVERYTHING for Humanity's survival' wasn't really explored. Or that he never got a chance to do an argument with her in her later stages of rampancy.
Imagine, if you will. After the whole 'hand Cortana over' business, you have Cortana talking about how all humans can be so selfish, or just being humanity hating in her rampant state...And then, quietly in response, the Chief just replies
"I don't believe that."
how many games played
lol people are so insecure about this stupid shit
>omg don't tell me that spending all this time and effort isn't justified you asshole!
If you have the disposable income that you wouldn't miss whatever amount of money you're considering spending on gold packs, do it. The amount of wraiths/scorpions/mantis etc that you get is worth it alone, fuck the random unlocks.
>I think it was around 700 warzone assault games when I finished silver.
Your average game is, what? 15 minutes if the other team isn't completely incompetent? That's 175 hours, and that's assuming you didn't have a single long drawn out game. That's way more than the vast majority of people will invest in a game, ever. I've invested hundreds of hours in many games, but I'm able to be objective enough to understand that most people do not.
>I'm just confused on why you think it takes a yea to unlock silvers
Based on what I just said. How much time do you think most people play per week? Hell, even if you played an hour per night and three hours a day on weekends, that's still 17 fucking weeks just to complete silvers. That's a long fucking time. Most people don't play multiplayer for much longer than that, and that's the point where you will just begin to open gold packs. Come the fuck on man lol
>accurate hip fire
>jumping fucking high in the air
>movie at 25 mph
>The point of SWAT is to emulate a real life counterpart
>How much time do you think most people play per week?
>Most people don't play multiplayer for much longer than that
Yeah your autism making you based shit that you can't prove on. A shit load of people already unlocked silvers so far proving it does not take a year to unlock silvers, Just check waypoint and every other Halo 5 related forums. Stop being a dumbass.
>Yeah your autism making you based shit that you can't prove on.
>states that I am autistic
> A shit load of people already unlocked silvers so far proving it does not take a year to unlock silvers, Just check waypoint and every other Halo 5 related forums. Stop being a dumbass.
>proceeds to take a sarcastic remark literally
Listen, I understand that you're insecure about this shit. It's fine. I'm saying that if someone has the disposable income to be intrigued by the idea of gold packs, that it's probably in their best interest.
>Average game is ~8 minutes not 15.
lol that's a load of shit but whatever you need to tell yourself
if a team is competent the game will easily last 12 minutes
it's rare for a game to last eight minutes, stating that as the average is fucking deluded bud
Post your GT and I'll check out how long your assault matches usually last faggot
>lol that's a load of shit but whatever you need to tell yourself
>load of shit
Okay whatever dude, I'm just telling you that I get average match time of 8.3 minutes for warzone assault.
>Post your GT and I'll check out how long your assault matches usually last faggot
It's basic math you'll get the same result.
>You clearly you have autism judging by that reading comprehension, It does not take a year to unlock silvers. Facts.
>make a sarcastic joke
>autist takes it literally and proceeds to tell you that you are autistic
I have made it very clear that it likely takes between 97-175 hours to finish silver packs bud. I'm sorry you're a retard IRL.
>I have made it very clear that it likely takes between 97-175 hours to finish silver packs bud.
You said a year then someone corrected you and you said 175 then someone corrected you again and you changed to 97 lol.
>I was only pretending to be retarded
Saying you was making a sarcastic joke afterwards on internet forums doesn't hide your autism anon.
Saying a year is clearly a joke you literal fucking retard
It takes a really long time to finish silver packs. It's a long grind to take on in order to optimize your unlock experience, you are investing, as you've just said, at least 97 hours just to fucking OPTIMIZE the rest of your time.
You are literally arguing that it is worth it to invest 97 hours of time (at least) in order to optimize the rest of your time invested. Like I said, you're probably a literal retard and you're insecure about how you've spent your time because you're an autist
>implying I didn't idle most of those hours
>a retard takes a joke literally
>they tell themselves the person that made the joke is the retard because the joke, when taken literally, doesn't make sense
Whatever you need to tell yourself lol
>a autist got BTFO so hard that he has to resort to saying it was sarcastic joke when there was no hint that it was one, on a internet forum.
Whatever you need to tell yourself lol
>/hg/ is dead at night
>nobody's dick to suck while he tries to snipe
Was I supposed to feel bad for you?
Yes, I'm being oppressed here!
No really though at least the strongholds game had everyone, on both teams, going for the objective and next to no one was killed outside of a capture point. It was really nice.
>That moment when you realize you're playing against a premade
>going through halo 5 captures
Jesus, it's weird seeing everyone at low levels or all their old gear or the people don't even play anymore.
I love how they sent me cute messages and a FR because i watched their whole pre ghost raid shenanigans.
I pretty much dropped my controller and started laughing because i knew we were fucked after watching them.
>roll a random vehicle drop
>roll a random weapon drop
>aim 3 perfect headshots
>a grenade does as much damage as my hard work in less time
How can anyone say with a straight face that grenades aren't OP in this? This is literally the worst they've ever been. It takes the skill out of the game. Everyone should start with 1 grenade, or they should reduce the splash radius. Grenadespam is more efficient than fucking AIMING IN A GODDAMN SHOOTER FUCK YOU 343
>stand on a grenade
>it hurts you
>this reading comprehension
343 apologists are the worst.
>stand in the same zip code as a grenade
>it takes half your shield, disrupts your aiming, slows movement
There's no point in giving people guns. Just give them grenades, it'll serve the same purpose.
Maybe you should try hitting the X button every now and again, and pay attention to the big yellow ribbons flying your way.
>implying reach grenades weren't worse with that shitty movement
>tfw can't shoot while boosting
Why is 343 so retarded? I was a fucking ninja in Titanfall because of this. It requires absolute control, and would separate the good players from the bad.
Because the community is afraid of change or evolution. They want the same slow, dull, clunky movement that 1-Reach had. It's fucking 2̶0̶1̶5̶ 2016, give us CUHRAZY shooters again.

If I was console only, sure it'd be great, but I'm not.
I'm asking because I own a PC. I can play everything outside of Gears, Crackdown, and Quantam Break. Considering I received it as a gift, I'm more inclined to try and sell this thing. Anything under 300 is a no go though.
>nothing from the Anvil initiative will be in Halo 5
Why live lads?
My aim is honestly pretty poor, I'm not terribly sure how to improve it. Probably 60+% of fair fights I'll lose on the count of missing a shot.
I also can't really seem to understand the lines of sight on several maps. I constantly get caught in poor positions and I have an issue judging which positions are going to get me shot from fifteen miles away or not.

I have the sensitivity on 1, too
maybe thats your problem?
tips from me (Im probably one of the best players from /hg/)
sens 5 (or 4)
outer 1 (or 0)
inner 1 (or 0)
acc 1 (or 2)
Use bumper jumper
go for power weapons
dont play too agressive if youre playing alone
know your surroundings
I usually get perfect kills with these settings. Just dont overreact, its just a game also try playing with premade teams otherwise dont play arena at all, till you get better. Use warzone for pratice
Good luck anon
Both of you need to completely ignore incoming damage and just focus on your target. 1 Sensitivity isn't good, senpai. Try setting your Sensitivity on 4 and 5 Accel and work down or up from there. I wish I could help you guys individually, but I'm needing a little break, and I'm not that good to begin with. I'll deff hit you guys up for some arena later though, if you post your GTs. Try to see if that shackish guy will give you some help, if he even posts anymore.
I've got one of those newfangled elite controllers, should I still use bumper jumper?
I have no idea how to even map my paddles, right now I've got them set to A and B and both stick clicks.
I'm at 4 sensitivity I think with the default 3 accel. My GT is Gae Deargg
How do you just ignore incoming damage though? I clam up as soon as my shit starts flashing red.
>I've got one of those newfangled elite controllers, should I still use bumper jumper?
God Im jelly,
Yes bumper jumper really saved me, eventhough I wasted 3 days with my muscle memory on it
Also dont listen to others posting here most of them suck ass, every game I was playing with /hg/ I was #1 so dont mind them and listen to me.>>127458651
Just pratice on warzone (I dont know if warzone has higher aim assist but warzone is easier to pratice but you still will suck in arena because of the higher aim assit in warzone)
>How do you just ignore incoming damage though?
Turn off vibration ( and auto stabilzation if you want to play with bumper jumper)
Do you just not use smart link often?
I have trouble clicking in either stick but I've got jump bound to a paddle so I never have to use the face buttons.
Does bunny hopping really help that much? I find I just get headshotted faster if I jump.
No I dont use smart link often, its not often needed if playing arena. Just hip fire
>Does bunny hopping really help that much?
Bunny hoping not that much imo but if you jump while still aiming and shooting and then evade mid air while still aiming at his head you will have a huge advantage. YOu need to make fail 1-2 shots. If so you could kill him faster
See I think I may over-rely on Smart Link then as I constantly go into it and get my aim disoriented by the drop on damage.
I'm a bumper jump vet from H3 and I played much much better back in that game so perhaps going back will do me well.
How often do you guys sprint?
Being almost every game #1 even without /hg/ is good for me.
If this is true, and you're so confident in how good you are, post your GT, so we can see your stats. Then, when we see how much better you are, we'll know. I've played with at least 4 people from /hg/ who are very good, and if you're one of them, I'll take your advice.
>How often do you guys sprint?
Not often, when I need to sprint to a power weapon I usually sprint then slide then boost then sprint again and slide , etc its makes me a bit faster and handicaps people trying to give me constant headshots while sprinting. But if you dont need to rush to a power weapon dont sprint.
Stats dont mean much tho, I could boost k/d in btb or warzone if I wanted.
I only use it if someone is running away from me and my sight to him is clear.
Just use it generally if hes far away and make sure that you hit his head if using pistol / br / dmr. Also if he hits you and you descope dont try to smart link again first try to hit him with hipfire so he descopes aswell then zoom in again.
>whole body tenses up
This doesn't work for you? I can't begin to tell you how many Halo games I've won, how many Need For Speed races I've won, etc. by tensing up when in a pinch.
Heard you guys was talking about skill like I wouldn't find out
