Halo 5: Guardians Discussion

Recommended Posts

Played on Eden Slayer/SH, Truth CTF, Gambol Breakout and I think Trident (The one with Splinter nades in the bottom of Hydra). Any questions on those maps from a relatively not bad player? 

Yeah, do you know one I could ask?  :saucey:

This might be the first time an official Halo vidoc was released with competent gameplay. Such a smart move to hire people that like the game and are good at it ehh 343i? :D I honestly didn't have faith in this game until today.

I saw the video, but I still don't buy that the abilities can enhance combat. Close range thrust and stabilizers are the only things I can think of that will add some sort of depth.

did it suck?

Pretty fun, I guess I'll put down everything I noted here

 

- Truth has a Camo, Sword and Plasma Caster. Camo and Sword are under P1 and Car 1 respectively. Caster top mid. BR in top bases, SMG bottom by lifts

- Eden has Snipe at Blue porch thing (on top of blue base that Blue Bend can see), Rockets Outside, Hydra at Red base (not countdown), Shotgun at Security. Stronghold 

- Pistol is hard but you get used to it. You'll suck with it at the beginning tho

- Sliding then jumping causes momentum jumps and if you thruster you slide a bit to cause another good jump for you. 

- Crouch strafing is dirty

- Sniper is h2 level easy. There's a reason the sniper has the light, it's ridiculous

- Rockets you can react to someone shooting you with a Thruster. I've learned it best to not shoot so far away if the opponent sees you and shoot after he uses Thruster (assuming he is far away). 

- Caster is hard to use but I'm getting the point of it. Sort of like h2 brute shot, charge is disgusting if you know where an opponent is going. Also good for denying opponents access. Very nice for CTF

- Splinter nades kill practically instantly if they're under your feet

- BR I think is kind of whatever, prefer the Pistol after practicing with it a bit more. Before I preferred the BR though

- I THINK Melee xx Thruster > Shoot/Melee is faster but im not 100% sure... (EDIT: Scratch that on melee after thruster. Recovery period on Thruster takes too long to make that work. But shooting w/ Pistol is fine) 

- Found a way to get from top base to top mid w/ flag on Truth CTF

- Carbine is scary

- Light Rifle is unreal on top mid, just place a shot and you're good. 

- DMR is easy mode Pistol

- Storm Rifle is godlike

- SMG is eh

- Hydra is good if you know the curves to the maps. Don't see the point of it though unless you locked onto someone

- Thruster causes some physics thing where everything is accelerated. 

- Radar is Sprint, Thruster, shooting enabled IIRC NOT walking in Arena at least. Dunno about Warzone

 

Edit:

 

-I lowkey kind of like Gambol Breakout...

- GP causes floating so you can do some tricky jumps like jump, thrust, GP (Float), then clamber with Flag and go way further. 

Probably forgot some stuff though 

How'd you play it?

 

:saucey:

Friend got a media copy somehow lol, only played a few and headed out because of school though.

I havent watched any H5 campaign because I wanted to keep it a surprise. But now that PvP was out I went on to watch some.

 

Whats will all these randys streaming? Surly it would of made sense to give Ninja and Naded the game to show off. They are easily the two biggest Halo Streamers (Snip3down when he streams)

 

It must have something to do with them gettin an early start on the game, advantage for tournaments?

I'd say give the Pistol some time to give an opinion on it. Maybe it's because I haven't played shooters in a long time but it took some time for me at least. Get some practice with it (don't neglect it), use the other rifles as well and you'll have a solid foundation. AR isn't so bad either, found myself gratifying to Pistol but to say I never used the AR would be ridiculous. Used it a lot when I'm cleaning up or if im flanking an opponent.

This sucks, I'm a fan of the sniper being something hard to use, but rewarding to master.  It's a specialist gun.

at the cost of elongating engagements due to the lack of shooting and already slow killtimes.

I feel you will miss a lot if they have Thruster. I think they have the light there so you can react to the opponent having Snipe with Thruster and bounce the fuck out of there or start a fight where Sniper is very disoriented. 

 

Light Rifle is a strong contender and Pistol is fine fighting snipe it seems. Like the thing is, I will be shot in the back and IDK what is shooting at me but the amount of damage I'm taking and how fast I'm getting it, I'm assuming its a DMR or LR, but it's a Pistol

 

Also, I swear I saw people here tripping that the Pistol has no range, idk wtf you're talking about.

If it widens the skill gap then I don't see what the issue is.

Overall thoughts are that the game is good?  Looks far better than Reach and 4 to me.  Often is a different story when you play it first hand though.

what did he say?

Something about jerks in forums who really know what they're talking about with gun mechanics and magnetism and how they can't help but go about things the wrong way. I want to watch it again when it's uploaded. 

 

Edit: There was more but i can't remember any specific quotes.

Its a pretty common trend on the internet, I highly doubt he was targeting anyone in particular
