Funny how every Halo that has added sprint dies and is entirely irrelevant shortly after launch.

Care to explain why Halo 3 is currently the most popular Halo game? I wonder if it could have something to do with it not having trashy "modern" gameplay mechanics that don't belong

Halo 3is great. A masterpiece.
Still it had dual wielding and equipment. 2things that where not great.

Halo 3 was not great because the lack of sprint though. It was great because of the levels, the enemies and the overall gameplay was great, not individual mechanics.

I wish we could have a halo 2 and 3 remake with no dual wielding :)

Ok so one thing I heard that im definitely going to need to see/play it first hand is:
from what I understand there are no longer Red vs Blue teams.
This is to preserve everyone's cosmetics - there is now a big blue or red outline around the players. This seems very bad.
Hopefully you can turn this off and set players to red vs blue in the options.
Does anyone know any more on this?

there's no info about turning people red and blue painted. You can customize the outline/shader around enemies though to be other colors besides red and blue.

I welcome this change greatly.

Im not so sure man - I dont want to see these big glowing outlines everywhere. Kinda weak.
I understand why theyre doing it - you never really got to see the way your spartan actually looked outside of Free for All or Firefight - but still.
ill need to play it for myself though to judge.

Well you can see when an enemy is scoped in on they don't glow much at all, but when enemies are more to the sides (or maybe aiming at you?) they have the outline which looks not too dissimilar from a full red body.

My gut reaction to red vs blue was initially WTF@#@#!.

Since playing Apex Legends I realise it's not really necessary. Compared to things like blue/red advantages on some maps historically I'm all for a little change and keeping your skins visible at all times. I want my digital barbie doll to show off my best side.

The glow effect will enhance the usual Halo clear identification too. As long as we don't go COD level of similarity between friend or foe I'm good.

Because.

it.

breaks.

Halos.

Gameplay.


Sprint - Can't shoot, elongates maps for a net positive of zero, is a press 'X' to escape mechanic.
Slide - breaks movement, gives small hitbox advantage without speed penalty. Makes crouch unbalanced.
Clamber - can't shoot. Can't move vertaically without having to look in a specific direction instead of being able to jump in any direction while shooting
Grapple for movement. Can't shoot. is just another press 'X' to escape mechanic. Breaks map design and flow.

It.

Breaks.

Halos.

Gameplay.

Still no evidence provided that Halo needs that garbage that straight up breaks it's gameplay.
IMO it needed breaking. You need to have ways to escape, otherwise the gameplay is too static, if you stray outside the positions of power on the map, you're just dead.
It seems like a lot of franchises have these fans that think nothing can be changed about the game or its ruined. It really seems like nostalgia and the comfort of experience that those players have with the older games. And thats fine, but just like, play the older games to enjoy that gameplay? Its mostly what Quake series fans do, and I can see that being a problem before for Halo, with older games being stuck on old consoles, but now with MCC on PC? Why be such a debbie downer, just go play what you want!

So with this approaching along side other shooters like BF and COD just curious how shocking would it be to see the free MP show up on Playstation at launch?

Just asking
