Would anyone here purchase a Beyond weapon skin.. if there was one? 

 

Asking for a friend.

 

YES YES ...A THOUSAND TIMES YES

They're all shit.

 

Like, cover the entire gun with your color scheme, or leave it the fuck alone. It's just even worse that there are so few skins in the game, and most of the ones we have seen so far are straight 80's gaudy.

 

The easiest things are the hardest for 343 sometimes.

Yeah I wish we'd get cool skins and not wannabe modern art lines and stripes. Hopefully the skins get cooler like the ones you might see in CS:GO and dare I say, CoD.

The focus rifle is another reason why I believe Reach's SP played so good.

 

compared to Halo 2? Nah.

 

Back onto halo 5 though, it appears to be well made on multiple levels. The level design is by a mile more open than duh 4, with hidden pathways scattered everywhere and with the added mobility makes the areas play more dynamic and open.

 

The enemies are solid.. They don't appear to be anywhere near as bullet spongey as they have been. All the prometheans essentially have weak spots, most grunts/jackals can be 1 hit killed with melee, covenant don't have ridiculous shields, you get my point. Some would argue this makes the game easier, I would argue that it makes the game play more fluid and gives players more options for taking out opponents.

 

collectibles are fucking sweet. 117 intel items (I believe), skulls, and badass weapon variants (such as the shotty that disintegrates folks) all encourage the player far more to traverse the maps than ever before.

 

Despite being one of the best made campaign's I've seen (judging from what I have seen from missions 1,2,3, and 8) the saddest part is that it appears to be the easiest halo yet. The moment I heard of Blue team (and by extension team Osiris) I thought "awesome" because it now meant that you would have actually competent AI buddies this time around. The reality? They are stupid, and frankly seem to be there for the sole purpose of reviving you, which brings me to my next problem. The DBNO system (similar to GOW's) makes what was already a somewhat lenient checkpoint and death system (I'm speaking for coop here) even more easy.

 

In the Legendary gameplay I saw players that are nowhere near the level I believe is required to complete a Halo game on Legendary complete it with little issue. See before if a player fucked up (solo) they were brought back to last checkpoint and had to do it all over again. Now, assuming they are in a moderately safe environment or within a safe distance of their AI companions, they are pretty much good to go and can be allotted a tremendous amount of wiggle room, so much so that mistakes players make become null and void.

 

The revive mechanic would be fine if there weren't so many checkpoints, that way a player can screw up more short term but long term they will be punished the same way because they would end up repeating a larger portion of the game. I know Halo 5 is gold, but changing the checkpoints to be more rare (perhaps just cutting out a swath of them) would do a lot to make Halo 5 a more challenging experience.

All of the separate corridors and secret rooms make me so excited. I was so happy whenever I would find all of those secret hallways and doors in CE, 2, and 3. Glad that is returning. It makes each experience different and really enhances the replay ability.

It wasn't a complaint, it was an observation. :lxthul:

 

Inb4 someone posts definition of complaint.

 

Nah, @@Ninja Xij hasn't posted here in a while, so I think you're free from dictionary definitions. :kappa:

I miss the focus rifle. Cool idea, sounded cool, looked cool.

 

Got you way too many assists though. Would be cool to see a buffed focus rifle in H5 down the line.

 

And, you know, the Grenade Launcher.

The Binary Rifle acts like the Focus Rifle in a sense now. It, rather than firing one "light bullet", ala Halo 4, now fires a beam that kills in one shot, assuming the beam keeps a constant bead on the target until it's exhausted.

Closet thing we got, I miss it also. Focus rifle and grenade launcher were GOAT.

haven't looked at a ton but from the ones I have seen, I have to agree. Really weird how they keep a lot of the guns color alone and just add on some random color.

 

Black Ops 2 had way better skins like the Cyborg skin

Never played CSGO so I cant vouch for those skins but wouldn't be surprised.

The Baconator is the most underrated weapon in Halo imo. I actually enjoyed that it was an assist weapon, a really interesting dynamic to the sandbox that I feel was never utilized.

I personally would not. You know why? Because that right there is Beyond Entertainment becoming the next big time corrupt eSports organization. What happened to the little guy? What happened to the American dream? Building a business from the ground up and sticking it to any of the big name corporations that come knocking at your door step looking to tear you down from the inside out? It really is sad how money has become such a motivator for all you internet users out there, and to be quite frank(theshow), I won't stand for it. It's time to stand up against this corporate tyranny and remember where we came from. The grassroots; let's get back to that people.

 

Let's get rid of these dank memes and gifs and reputation votes and make this forum a fair and equal society without any dankness.

 

Let's show these corrupt admins that run this site that we will not stand for this corporate take over looking to take away our hard earned pure American dollars.

 

It's time to come together, for the things that really matter.

 

Let's make Beyond Great Again.

I sincerely hope no one takes this post at all serious.

Saw this in gameplay, definitely an improvement of the weapon. I'm glad the easy one shot kill is no longer a thing.

 

I commend you 343.

Yeah all of the skins in Halo 4 and 5 have been colored line patterns. I get that they are going for the realistic 'warpaint' approach, but people don't want that. Give us something with style, like glowing bits, or particle effects. One of the most sought after pieces of armor in Halo was the flaming helmet. Give us more of that and less of the boring uninspired designs.

You'll probably like the Prometheans Sniper this game (I forgot the name). It's like the Baconator but kills super fast and can be used optimally in CQC as well if you can keep your aim on them 

 

Edit: Ice beat me to it lol

Just came across this. They sure are putting a lot of these out.

It just makes me wonder why they're not getting RT involved to film a pre-release machinima like they do with every Halo

My gamertag is GoochGlitter. Would you want someone like me associated with your brand?
