Back to Destiny!!!
Also, i love the classic pistol style. Sniping with it is great.
I was hoping to pick up an elite controller today at Best Buy, but it looks like they're pretty much sold out everywhere.
I'm having loads of fun so far. Multiplayer is great
Any idea how to get to the clan when youre in the game? I dont see any other members when you hit X for friends at the main screen
I'm terrible at Halo MP also but I'm going along the lines of give it a chance and learn the game mechanics\weapons/maps. I was horrible at Titanfall at first and now I'm generally a super badass.
Definitely having to slow my game down in mp - gotta remember its not cod. Having a good time with arena, warzone seems really underwhelming so far.
Should get a fire team together tomorrow
We played as a 4 man for a while. I did much better but still kinda mediocre. Warzone seems cool I just need to learn the maps.
So is it just me, or does this feel more like Timesplitters (or maybe quake) than it does a Halo game?
PvP seems like its gone back to its halo roots... No loadouts, just map control based on weapon spawns.
Why wouldn't everyone use BEV0? They aren't unique, right?
They aren't but since it won't display your name unless you are super close we wanted a way to differentiate between us.
I'm just going to go through and add everyone in the clan to my friends list then
New way to get to the spire from each base on Warzone...
Anyone interested in 4manning the legendary campaign?
interested, but not sure when i'll have time.
I'm up for heroic or legendary. Looks like all the co-op achievements are on heroic, and then the legendary one is for completing it solo.
i got to the warden on solo legendary, and he is a bitch.
I'm down. I may be done with MP but would do that.
If anyone needs to get the Iron Skull on Glassed, I have a co-op checkpoint right where you need to shoot that phaeton down. It's much easier to do in co-op.
Been playing through solo on Legendary, and man it is tough. Mission 14 with the multiple Wardens is insane with the pants-on-head retarded AI teammates. They are only good as cannon fodder and a few revives. It's the only fight you can't really hang back and pick off enemies to clean things up. Going back through to find intel and skulls next, then co-op cheevos!

So we started downloading Sunday afternoon and my xbox finally finished yesterday around 6 when I got home from work. Booted it up with wife and we started playing warzone with some people we play Destiny with.
To be honest, I wasn't that impressed. Yeah, it was fun, but I don't have an itch to play like I did with Halo 3 or even Halo Reach.
Hopefully 4v4 is more fun because warzone is very slow to me.
I definitely prefer the regular multiplayer modes over warzone so far. Arena feels like classic halo, just with a little more agility and movement.
Definitely looking forward to them adding more game modes and maps, though.
Warzone assault is very fun. Regular warzone needs changes. Boss kills are essentially random luck on who shoots at the very end
Coming from someone who has played a couple of the previous games (1 and 2 mainly) a bit, but not really a huge Halo nerd I think my biggest problem with it, besides the fact that I'm terrible, is that the multiplayer feels like a game that is about 10 years old. It seems like a pretty basic shooter with nothing that really sets it apart or evolves the genre. Warzone feels a lot like a pretty watered down version of Battlefield, but without the depth that different classes, loadouts, etc. gives you. Graphically, a lot of the levels look kind of meh and unfinished with textures and detail. They are probably pretty well designed so they're balanced, but I haven't played enough to determine that yet. I do admit, that the game runs smooth and it is refreshing to have a game that plays on dedicated servers. It may just be that Halo games aren't for me. I'm not the biggest fan of all of the hipfiring and not having loadouts so you can start a game or respawn with specific basic weapons.
They made a specific effort to simplify the PvP experience because Halo 4 did not do very well. (Halo 4 PvP players left the game quicker than any of the others).
I wish they'd make it easier to see what others are doing in the game. That way I won't accidentally send Shake 10 game invites.
so should i grab this or blops3 as a destiny backup? i still can't decide
If you know you enjoy Halo get this, if you're not then wait for the reviews of Black Ops and see if it's any good. I really enjoyed Black Ops 2, but have absolutely hated Ghosts and AW.
Halo 5 is a mixture of the two. You can enjoy the CoD $#@! with Warzone and the Halo with the regular Arena 4v4. Maybe I'm stuck in the past with Halo 2 and 3 because I enjoyed those games so much. Looking forward to playing 4v4 to see if it's fun.
Yeah, I was hoping the weekend playlist thing would have been live this past weekend. That's supposed to be a regular thing.
They said Big Team Battle is coming, along with maps specifically made for that game mode. And I'm sure more game modes will appear at some point. I'm just not sure what their timeline is with that stuff. I think Big Team Battle and Forge are supposed to be released at the same time, sometime in December? I don't know. If you're on the fence about the game, I'd say wait until that stuff is released and then pick the game up. Maybe there will be some sales on the game by then.
Personally, I love Arena, Slayer, Breakout, and SWAT in Halo 5 so far. SWAT could use some work on the spawn kill problem that seems to happen every once in a while, but the others are great. I've only played a couple games of Free for All and did alright in there, but I typically stick to the team-based game modes. The maps do feel cartoony at times and when they show the pre-match flyovers, the aliasing on some of them is horrible. And yeah, the only place you get to really see your customized character (colors and all) is Free for All.
Overall though, I love the game so far. Balanced weapons and map control, that's what Halo is about. I'm having lots of fun with it and once the other modes are released I'm sure it'll just be even better. They do need to have a way to see what your friends are doing though, like jofus said.

Some tactics and advanced maneuvers shown in this video. Didn't even think to try the sprint - slide - jump - dash combo.
I spent all my req points on gold packs and got the black visor. Guess I'm done with halo 5 now.
looks like shotty snipers is gonna win.
I didn't even realize that we had someone with that handle.
How is CTF not winning the vote? That should have been a Day 1 game mode for Halo 5. It's the only gametype I played in Halo 1/2/3 with my friends. We would spend hours on one match of CTF in Blood Gulch.
