Oke ive played a while and its sweet it really forces you t your limmits awesome but some things need to be tonned down, i don't mind being attacked by the covenant on both sides and 2 banshees from above (since you shoot one down then the other flees) but i hate the fact 1 random needle can kill me, is this intentianal or have you missed this?

Erm it really does depend on what difficulty you play it on, but on any difficulty a shot to ur head means instant death.

Yeah that's actually my only complaint about the mod, the Needler. Since the mod is so hard and you only have to get hit twice before you die (which I really like) the Needler just seems too overpower when the enemy uses it since this mod is very much based on taking cover the needlers can just fly around the corner and kill you and there is nothing you can do about it.
Other than that everything in the mod is great and I'm really enjoying it! :D

This game is great, I know this'll sound cliche but for real if you added a version of "firefight" that would make me download this. I've wanted that kind of mode ever since halo first came out. too bad I don't have a 360 =/

Oh makes sense, the normal soldiers are bait and while they are killed the player runs across.

I have a question: have you ever beaten your own mission on any difficulty? it seems you repaced the impossibel with the less impossible, really 1 shot sends me back 3/4 my life on normal, how are we supposed to cross the bridge? i tried using the Hogs and shooting them but i end up dead, one funny thing is i almost got my Wharthog across ODST style :D
