Best settings for No Sprint gametypes

Recommended Posts

So, I know the whole no sprint thing was big a couple weeks ago and many people are still very much in favor of no sprint. I am still of the belief that it won't work in matchmaking bc of how many things are dependent on sprint (certain jumps, lines of sight etc.) but that is besides the point. For those that still wish to play no sprint in customs I believe I have found a great balance to fine tweak it with the settings. 

In H4 the shields seem to take quite a while to start to recharge, 7seconds I believe, forgive me if that isn't correct. And since I've always been a huge fan of H3 I found adjusting the shields to 5seconds to start recharging and putting the recharge rate at 125 worked best for no sprint gametypes.

Also, putting the jump height to 110 percent was beneficial. For example, on simplex with no sprint you obviously can't make the jump from red/blue window to top green. So spring jumping up to top green was the fastest way to get the overshield. With 110 jump height you can make that jump without spring jumping so it helps bridge the gap of map movement without sprint.


So to summarize:

No sprint,

5 second shield recharge delay,

125 shield recharge rate,

110 jump height.

120 Movement speed.


I personally think it plays really well, I just wanted to let people know my findings because I think it makes the game more enjoyable. 

If you have used other tweaked settings and you think they are even better let me know, or if you try the settings I've suggested feel free to leave feedback.

Halo 4's shield recharge delay is six seconds; Halo 3's is four. They changed it due to the inclusion of Sprint (notice how only one complication can cause so many issues). The "Recharge" armor mod will reduce the time delay to five seconds.
