The Prometheans are a bitch though. Precision weapons are always necessary, the knights have ridiculous shields and keep teleporting away or being resurrected. You really have to focus one one at a time or it just seems like a waste of precious ammo.

After finally finishing the campaign on solo legendary I realized I missed fighting the flood instead of these robot things It's nice afterwards though.

Question: Will those of us who've already run through the campaign on legendary get the XP for the weekly challenges of "complete this level on legendary" as they're activated? Because whenever I finished a level there was always a pop up saying I finished each level's challenge, but it lists 0 xp for it.

Ok, so what does everyone use for their armor abilities?

IMO, promethean vision is damn near cheating. It's so freaking easy to rack up 25-30 kills in a regular infinity slayer match with that thing. Thruster pack seems cool, but it's hard to get down right. I need to work on it more, but I like the craftiness of it.

Thruster pack is just a shitty version of Evade. For it to be worth anything, it either needs a decent range boost, or the animation needs to not take eight years.

I usually use Jetpack or Promethean Vision. Camo is good sometimes, even though the effects of camo on radar are just as baffling as they were in Reach. Seriously, what the fuck is the logic behind that?

Also, binary rifle wielding Knights on Legendary Campaign are giving me flashbacks to Jackal Snipers. They're not as common, but they're much more difficult to kill, too. So while it's doubtful I'll be suffering from PTSD as a result of them, I think they're actually even more aggravating while you're fighting them.

I keep getting ****ed up by thrusters in flood, apart from that I've never seen anyone use them

Don't get me started on the Knights on the last level on solo legendary, I almost had a cardiac arrest during the last fight with them

"oh I notice you've finally gotten my shields down, let me teleport to the other side of the world and get them back as I'm invincible while teleporting, oh and some other ****er will step in my place and shoot you" hated them soooo much


As for armour abilities, I use the turret and the regeneration bubble, if I'm attacking then its bubble time while the turret kicks ass during defensive play

There's a reason you've never seen anyone use Thruster Pack outside of Flood. It's different in both Flood and Campaign, namely that it doesn't suck ass. The Flood and Campaign versions both have significantly greater range than the one you can use in Slayer.

ahh, it does suck with my lag, half the time I shoot the guy in the face with my shotgun as he boosts but I still get infected

Every mission on solo legendary has me kicking and screaming for around 2 hours, but I get there in the end.

Fair enough, I've not actually gotten the game yet, and have only skimmed the thread, so I was interested in why you thought it was shit, when most people seem to be praising it.

Understand what you mean though, I hate it when franchises lose their "feel"

The only thing I don't like about the game was the campaign ending, the actual level rather than the story though.


Definitely needed something much more 'epic' feeling like the final part of the last level in Halo 3 when you had to drive along the exploding Halo.

I think the main thing wrong with it was that it felt too much like Halo. 343 had the perfect chance to shake things up and make the franchise interesting again, but most of the game was basically just the same as the first 3.

It was still a great game, better than 3, but I dunno. Towards the end I just got a bit tired. Hopefully 343 were only doing this because they didn't want fans to complain, and that they're going to revolutionise halo 5.

These new Halos are all about the multiplayer guys. You really can't grade them on the campaign alone...

So they must have thought camo wasnt good enough,

so they patched it to barely fade when running and moving, and to not appear on promethean vision, so the one massive reason to use promethean vision is now gone.

Absolutely stupid decision. As was removing snipers, 343 is really starting to piss me off.

Not the last 3 games I've played, they are not visible behind a wall, and a very very faint blue outline in direct site, got screwed by sword multiple times because they didnt appear.
