Don't worry about it.
I have to disagree, for the Covenant the beam rifle suits them better. The focus rifle is useful at close to medium range, but is not a real sniper's weapon. It reveals your position very easily considering it's bright and you have to fire for a long amount of time to kill what you're shooting. The carbine is also more conventional than the needle rifle and can fire faster and fairly accurately, so I prefer it over the needle rifle.
I can't wait to see the Falcon! Will it have the main chin gun like the singleplayer one? Oh, and about the hornet, I think someone said there should be people riding on the sides because it looks empty. I agree with that but that may overpower it unless they only have assault rifles.
That poor marine laying limp on the command point didn't fare well against this fellow...
I hope for the Halo 2 and 3 beam rifle and carbine, I'm not a fan of the needle rifle or the focus rifle.
Excellent looking ODST!
I was thinking of this as well. It was pretty nifty in Halo Wars to be able to use infantry to fight light vehicles and even heavy vehicles if you've got enough men. The rocket ability is a definite plus in my book, or at least a substitute like mines. Although if you're making ODSTs with rocket launchers, that ability would defeat their purpose.
These things shouldn't really be labeled anti air. They tear up ground based units better than the normal wraith. And if it's anything like the game, I'll bet if you skillfully maneuver those new hornets of yours, they can dodge most of the shots.
That's the first thing I'm taking down in a group of enemies. It looks to be as deadly to ground based units as it is to air based ones. I can see two of these things taking down two or three squads of marines and taking down a vehicle or two's health with one burst...
Uhhh, my last post went haywire. It was meant to be after what Farseer said about the flood.
They did that in Halo Wars, I have to admit that it's pretty cool. When Spartans are close to there victims they also do some cool stuff, like an assassination in Halo Reach.
That is my least favorite level in the entire series... Have you by chance ever read The Mona Lisa in Halo Legends? One of the best short stories I've ever read. Although there is another story in there called Dirt that is pretty amazing too.
As long as the MA5B (assault rifle) sounds similar and there aren't armor abilities, I'm fine.
This may have been answered, but quite honestly I don't want to look. How are Spartans being handled? Just a few Spartan IIs that can be built, or like twenty Spartan IIIs at a time? Or just no Spartans at all? No Spartans would make sense because of their low numbers, but that wouldn't be very fun would it?
I'm sure this has been asked plenty of times before, but I couldn't find the answer. Can you give us an ETA on the ground beta? I'm absolutely drooling over the thought of playing this.
The Rebel heavy tank can switch between lasers and missiles, can it not?
Although I like the cobra as well, the UNSC lacks a bit in antiarmor.
So tanks can fire shells at aircraft? Halo Wars made it to where only the machine gun will fire at aircraft that are hovering still in the air, easy targets for shells. Although I'm glad if you are making it to where they can fire shells at aircraft, there will probably be some serious balance issues. I guess that's where scarabs come in, right? Although, tanks beat ghosts. Tanks beat hunters. Tanks beat everything!
I'm pretty sure scarabs drop from orbit, like ODSTs.
As long as it helps get the ground beta out faster, I approve completely.
Shoot for the hole! Then double tap him in the head.
I love the look of the HE Halo 1 pistol in an ODST's hand. But what's up with the non-shouldered rifle? He's like "Check out this shiny new gun!"
I'll bet two of these fellas can take down an entire UNSC marine squad.
Can't wait to see the next update! It's been a while.
Map markers would be nice!
Can't do crap about Longswords, can you Hunters?
The new hud looks 10 times better than the old one, and I can't wait for new maps!
Why is it the bad guys ALWAYS have the super weapons?
