Halo 3 Throwback Playlist "I'm Playing Now" and Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I figured it'd be a good idea to give us a place where we can quickly assemble teams and discuss the gametypes in this playlist. Let's consolidate our knowledge and figure out the best way to play these gametypes.

On Snowbound TS, I had snipe in low base, and had an enemy spawn inside the base with me and kill me. 5 seconds later, I respawned right behind him to return the favor. Beware of horrifically bad spawns in this gametype. Anybody have any success with a certain strategy while sniping on this gametype? I don't really know how to protect myself from whacky spawns yet.

I think you really need multiple teammates near you.

 

I honestly can't wait until the update next week when the oddball spawn influence gets tweaked.  If it fixes spawn oddball would be immediately better.

What this playlist really needs is a 10% movement speed bump and 10% grenade damage/radius reduction.  Both should be easy to do.

Get assembly or whatever out of the rotation though. It was a shit map in Halo 3, and a shit map now. My God did I miss classic no bullshit Halo though.

It's like we god a off brand peanut butter cup wrapped in a reeses package and kept getting tricked for 5 years, and now after a good while, I got to taste the real thing again.

I would take Assembly over Epitaph 10/10. Never understood why Epitaph eludes so much criticism while Assembly gets so much. Assembly is a mediocre arena map. Epitaph is the unholy doom-spawn of long TTK’s and and an “All the 90 Degree Corners You Can Eat” Buffet.

Same. GT matches my username.  Hopefully oddball will play better with the changes being made today.

High Ground Ball: Hold the ball on the SAM launcher in the back of the base, force other team to spawn outside of bunker, profit.

 

If you take the ball to the cliff, you’re wrong. The enemy will spawn at bottom grav lift in defiance of all logic and reasoning, and your setup will fail.

new BR (as of yesterday) makes this playlist a bit strange, way easier to get Perfects so there seems to be more standoffs

I don't think so. Here is a link to the patch notes: https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/forums/6e35355aecdf4fd0acdaee3cc4156fd4/topics/halo-5-hot-fix---march-7-2018/2e54ebae-3dad-4929-8db5-67a84cb1e307/posts?page=1

 

Edit: Specific Battle Rifle changes

 

Battle Rifle

  • Goal: Address feedback from players who experience discomfort when using some BR variants. The recoil that was introduced to the BR is a bit too much when using scope attachments.
  • Tuning changes: Reduced recoil on the Longshot, Sentinel, and COG scope attachments.
  • Takeaway: These changes will help ensure that these attachments are competitively viable while reducing the physical discomfort issues players have been reporting since the last update.

right, I had read that as well, but then I played Warzone and am 99% certain that Halo 2 BR / regular BR (without those attachments) also has less recoil now, so I'm confused.  I went back and watched old clips in theater, pre-update, and my reticle moved more

Next level strat: never touch the ball at any point ever.
