Don't worry about it.
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?
I've got a problem with no AI. They don't do anything.
They can't shoot at aircraft can they?
Disregard that last post, I just started it up as the administrator and it worked. Now about the level, I have two questions. Can you get in the tank and can you kill the scarab (I just drove past it)?
I'm trying to try it out, but I've had no luck. I replaced a30.map with the one in D:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Halo\MAPS but when I choose the level to play ("Halo") it is the normal mission. This is strange and seemingly impossible because I just completely replaced that file. I have Windows 7 64bit by the way.
Too hardcore? Needs more balance in your favor? Really hard? Nearly impossible? Sounds great to me!
