Do we have a new starting weapon to beg for  :walshy:

Also, what about the tactical magnum? 

AMD GE doesn't detect Halo 5 yet, so I can't record anything and I wouldn't even if I could, considering how it's essentially an "early" build.

 

The Tactical Magnum has the same fire rate as the normal Magnum, but since I can't find any players, I can't test whether it's a 5sk or a 4sk.

What rifle, either current or historical, looks like this? Or functions like it?

I don't get what you're on about. You're talking about real life weapons. I'm talking about weapons in game, be it Halo, or other titles.

 

Edit: Unless you referred to my "it's just an Alien AR" comment, which is in reference to how I view its performance and handling.

Let's say H5 explodes on PC (mods, fun gametypes, customs..everything), how would it help the Halo community?

More eyes on Halo Wars 2, Halo 6, etc. More player base across both Xbox One and PC so matchmaking is more filled up meaning we can have more playlists that people want permanent like Doubles, Snipers, Action Sack, etc from the get go.

Lack of uncorrectable shit aim on PC would be nice.

Wat. Wat. Wat. 

 

When I picked up the Plasma Rifle in CE, all I could think of was "Alien Assault Rifle". It wasn't weird in any way. It was a counterpart with unique traits, sure, but far from weird, visually. Bar that, how does how someone else wields the weapon make it "less unique" or "more unique". Prometheans pseudo-weld their weapons to their bodies until they die, and wield them with one hand, unlike the player. But appearance isn't what makes the weapon unique. It's the specific traits hardlight weapons have that give it that unique edge; the Lightrifle with its amped damage when zoomed, the Scattershot with its ricocheting, homing projectiles, or the Suppressor with its wind up, and tracking projectiles. 

 

The only thing I can complain about for the Covenant is how much of a matte purple tone they have, now, vehicle wise. Halo 4 nailed it with the bluish purple tint and shiny, vibrant, hexagonal design. Now, they're just... "Bland". The Temple vehicles, and to a point, Ultra Vehicles remedy this with the shine they have, and such. Beautiful coloration.

 

Be honest, can you tell me you've seen a map like Truth, with its pseudo organic, but also metallic appearance anywhere else in previous Covenant palettes? The only place I can name like that is the Harvester from Halo 4. It's a super unique and cool style. The art style's good, bar certain changes from Halo 4, to Halo 5.

some of the new art for the covenant is good, and some is bad.

 

I understood what you mean, not everything related to the covenant is unoriginal.

Well... idk, I just don't really like the look of the new covenant

So it appears all the new REQS have been available since at least June 29th.

 

If you download a map from WyvernZu's file share, it has all new REQs on the weapon pads that you can use on your xbox without downloading anything.

 

If i had to guess, maybe this update adds new reqs we wont be using until aroudn October or so :P

Wouldn't be the first time its happened. Hog Wild's REQs just appeared on the day without an update.

 

Some things aren't right with the new REQs like the Hunter Cannons having incorrect names and images when picked up, as well as there being no kill feed icon, but the gun is fully functioning as it should be.

 

Same for the two new Pistols.

 

I tried to bring the Super Fiesta gametype to Xbox One but it just reverts to default Fiesta.

Could Halo go cross plateform?

 

Pc and Xbox, or would Pc have to much of an advantage?

 

Force Controller for online play?

PC players would have a ridiculous advantage over console players, it won't happen.

Even Gears 4 won't allow cross-play for competitive gametypes even though the controller is better than M&K for that particular game considering that the stick allows faster and more precise wall-bouncing, which is the key factor of the game (this is according to pro players I've heard, and I don't have problems believing it).

Try doing headshots only with the Gunfighter.

I don't have a dummy to shoot at, but I doubt it would make a difference. Headshots have never done bonus damage against shields.

Whatever the silenced Pistol is, that's a 6SK.

 

It would be.  Of course it is.  I think 343 likes trolling us.  Some guy is just sitting there deviously thinking to himself, I can create all the features they want and then just distribute them separately across 3 different pistols so they'll never be fully satisfied.  We'll always have to settle with 343.

I'm pretty sure the Beta Magnum was like that. Something about having to get a shield headshot to get a 5sk. If someone has Forge PC, I can test it later. I really need a meat dummy.

The magnum is the perfect starting weapon in their mind and they sure won't start digging their graves by giving us a better utility weapon (i.e. 1s kill time low aim assist, 2x zoom pistol) that will cause uproar in the community.

Well if Halo 6 is a "play anywhere" game, it will probably be cross platform, which is probably a bad thing for console players.  PC players will have a huge advantage. Microsoft is supposed to be adding K+M support for xbox, but I don't see a bunch of console players sitting in there rooms on a lazy boy switching to K+M very soon. Console players will be complaining though, probably making accusations about cheating and what not.   Hopefully at least, they will have an indicator whether players are from PC or xbox, and what kind of input they are using like Rocket league has.  

 

As a person who prefers PC to xbox, I would be PISSED if they forced controller for online play.    I would riot.  That is not the answer my friend.  Shame on you for mentioning it.  Don't give 343 any bad ideas, they would be the ones to implement something stupid like that.
