Halo 5: Guardians Discussion

Recommended Posts

Even super competitive games like Counter Strike have the ability to buy weapons later in the game. I really don't think this is an issue.

CS also has bloom but that didn't work as well in Halo, did it?  Lol js

If you missed IGN's bit of extra Halo 5 information, you can view it here:

 

http://www.twitch.tv/ign/v/6205864

 

Starts at 2:50:52. I tried linking with the time in the URL, but it plays without audio for some weird reason. Could be a bug on Twitch's end.

Went for a map. what happened since the briefing?

Nothing really. Frankie confirmed fair starts and that Warzone isn't replacing BTB on GAF.

Really bad comparison. CS bloom is nothing like Reach's.

And where is the limit on buying weapons? I can say for certain that if we can buy rocket launchers or plasma pistols, this game mode is fucked like halo 4 was.

Otherwise I'll educate you on CS recoil and bloom.

Wait for more information. They're going to be talking about Warzone in three hours or so on the daily show.

Campaign looks fantastic. 

 

Warzone seems really interesting, i just hope they don't rearrange Warzone maps into Arena maps and that's why we get 20 maps on launch.

 

Am i the only one that felt a slight Destiny-vibe? Maybe is just an impression.

 

Did we really need ADS on the shotty? how is that gonna be of any use if it truly doesn't give any advantage?

 

Excited to see what that huge guardian thing is and what role is going to play in the game.

The company that made Bioshock has been disbanded?

Not the company that owns the IP. They teased a picture of Rapture on twitter like a year ago.

So, about 20 maps at launch.

I'm expecting a breakdown like this:

2v2-4v4 - 10 maps

6v6-8v8 - 6 maps

Warzone - 4 maps

 

I think that would be a well balanced and fair launch lineup for everyone.

I need tighter spread on my shotty so I can hit my shots.

I'm starting to think the AR may actually have 36 rounds rather than 32.

maybe it's just one slug or something, the reticle didn't change so I may not do anything.

Radar is 25m in this mode by the looks of it.

I'm expecting the ratio to be more like:

12-14

4-6

2

 

I don't think Warzone is a gamemode that would really benefit from having more maps at launch.  It's already going to be varied and chaotic enough as is.

 

Off-topic, I just realized that Warzone map is the same as the concept art we saw months ago.

Hallelujah. Halo 4's 40m radar was ridiculous. 25 is standard for Halo 2, 3, and Reach (don't know about CE because who plays CE with motion tracker?) and worked as well as expected in those games.

 

Still wish they'd get rid of the verticality sensor though. Make players use their eyes a bit more.

 

EDIT: That sniper scope looks way cleaner now. Much improved from beta.

It's a bit wide - I don't think it ever had that much peripheral vision in any other Halo. It felt unfamiliar in the beta and may take some getting used to.

If they make btb bigger, fuck them they're focusing on bullshit.

If they make btb smaller, fuck them, btb was a popular mode.

If they keep it the same, fuck them, they're wasting console power.

 

Damned if they do, damned if they dont.

line 2 is irrelevant because we have had 6 vs 6 in the past, no-one complains about keeping it the same. seems you ignored all the people on here and waypoint mentioning on WHY they don't want to see bigger BTB. oh well generalizations for all!

From the IGN post-show interview:

Looking at this screen, it looks like there's a currency required to make purchases (energy?) on top of having to unlock weapons or vehicles.

 

I'm guessing vehicles require "energy" since the power weapons say "single use".

 

As for the loadout screen, I remember it showed an AR and a pistol.

 

EDIT: nevermind, energy is also used for power weapons:
