#482 How do you get better at Halo?

Posted by brycegrit on 14 March 2013 - 01:12 AM

Well this is gonna be long... 

 

To get better at the game, you have to understand everything that's going on. You don't just wake up one day and your the best at halo.You have to be good at all aspects of the game, from timing power weapons to playing your advantages with the BR. To map awarness to map control. This takes years to become a expert at and honestly thiese are my suggestion's besides that poster's bullshit youtube post. Sorry for swearing

 

 

-Watch Your Footage (1-2 hours a night)

This way you can see what your weakness and strengths are. Everyone started somewhere and the hardest thing is criticing yourself but the more you watch your footage and what's going on. The more you will realize what's happening in the game

-Work on communication

Even when you don't have anyone to play with, callout with mute teammates! Communication is a huge skill to have! 

-Teamwork

This isn't a out BR/DMR contest. yeah its nice to do that but the reality is a good player doesn't get into 1 on 1 battles he gets the opposing player weak and has his team mate clean them up. Practice running in 2s and good bait and switch techniques! 

-Awareness

Be AWARE of what's going on. Look around you check the corners, explore the map in forge see what spots the enemy team will come from if your at one spot. 

-Map Movement

Every wonder how not to get sniped? Great player's take key routes to making sure they are hard target to hit. Practice this and watch pro's. The way's they move around the map

 

 

There's so much more to this game than meets the eye. And these are just a few tips ill give you. Practice on one of these things for a week at a time and watch yourself progress there's nothing better than seeing progress!

#346 What are your expectations for Halo 5?

Posted by Captain Napalm on 20 January 2013 - 10:42 PM

Throughout the next two installments in the series, I expect Master Chief to have to face some very tough challenges. Not just physical challenges where his life is endangered by the Prometheans and Covenant, but internal challenges. What will Chief do without Cortana? Does he believe she's really dead? Will he try to find her again on Requiem? What happens if Chief has to choose between finding Cortana and saving Earth? The cutscene introduction to the Halo 4 campaign described Chief as unstable, broken even. I think gripping choices and plot twists like this are going to be huge pieces of the coming story.

#986 Forge Forum Guidelines

Posted by AvalonX on 08 September 2013 - 03:20 AM

Is the only way to grab screenshots with a capture card?  I think maybe for new forgers you can outline a Forge 101 post.  That might helps a lot.

#946 Can You Remember Getting Halo 2?

Posted by Soku47 on 30 August 2013 - 06:07 PM

Yup, coming home from school I saw the silver case (limited edition) sitting there shining on the kitchen table. I was like "Is that?..No way,". The thing is, my mom had forgotten to hide it from me, so she was considering taking it back. I had to litteraly beg her not to, and then procedded to have one of the best most memerorable five hours of my gaming life.

#45 Midnight Release

Posted by TorchuVadergear on 06 November 2012 - 10:11 PM

I showed up to the launch an hour early and got a decent spot in line. I happened to tag along with a buddy; but he had brought along about 30~ish games to trade in, so that obviously warranted some impatient people behind us. :s

Anyway, while we were in line, the employees passed out doritos and free double EXP codes :D
I eventually got through the line, (and finished waiting for my pal to finish his trade,) and I purchased Halo 4 Limited Edition along with the Mass Effect Trilogy. This coupled with my new Minecraft Server, and newly purchased Battlefield 3 Premium is going to keep me extremely busy. For like, ever.

The night of the release, we bought chips, soft tacos, and Mountain Dew. I was sure to not drink any mountain Dew until after 5:00 AM the following day. This prevented a complete sugar crash, and worked perfectly into a well-timed escapade to fall asleep at 7:20 and awake less than two hours later fully refreshed. :)
So here I am, 17:11 (5:11PM), waiting on my pals in Vegas to get online so I can play level 3 of the story. And I'm not in the least tired. At all.

#394 Some details come out about the competitive playlist

Posted by LoyalServant on 07 February 2013 - 08:19 PM

Agreed, and it's a real shame. This is definitely a step in the right direction but it's far from my expectations. I don't really like doubles and I don't see how you could consider that play-list "pro", especially if it looks like the halo 3 team doubles playlist. I don't consider a player very good for hiding in a room with a shotgun and invisibility.

 

There are also problems with the weapon timers, actually that's the problem; there are no times on the weapons. I realize 343 made this arrangement so that advanced players wouldn't hog power weapons but if they're ranking system would work advanced players would be playing against other advanced player thus knowing the spawn time of the weapons.

 

It's obviously going to be better than what we have now but the play-list in halo 4 is a mess. They all revolve around the theme there is no variety...

#359 Some details come out about the competitive playlist

Posted by AvalonX on 26 January 2013 - 05:06 AM

Via Waypoint

 

Some early details on this playlist:



  • 4 vs 4 
    Pre-set game loadouts 
    Forced respawn timers 
    No instant respawn 
    Ordnance on re-supply timers
    Join-in-progress off
    No split-screen play 
    Friendly fire on
    Max party size 4 with big party matching enforced
    No guests allowed
 

 

This is great for purists although it looks like there is no mention of 1 flag CTF, dropping of the flag or Sprint removal.  Still I have hope!

#307 ODST A Letdown?

Posted by BigBigFan on 15 January 2013 - 10:40 PM

Fun fact: did you know that Halo 3 ODST was originally names Halo 3 Recon but they changed it in part because of the nature of the in game shoulders with the same name? Players have always wanted to own a "fire helm" because they believed it was the recon helm that had flames on it but in reality it was the shoulders and Bungee didn't want to make them widely available, yet. Of course they made them widely available in the next expansion.

#263 Choosing the right sensitivity

Posted by LoyalServant on 06 January 2013 - 06:33 AM

Hey guys, I wanted to know which sensitivity you preferred/played on in Halo 4?

 

Honestly I believe the higher you go ( without affecting your accuracy) the better of a player you are. I used to play on 10 however I have dropped it to 8 since I changed from a t.v to a computer monitor. The smaller your screen is that lower I seem to need to play without flying everywhere.

 

You may want to adjust your sensitivity, depending on the type of player you are! I was a support player back in Halo 3 and seemed to have carried that "personality" in Halo 4. The support player mainly assists the main slayers in his team, he is at the right place at the right time and is constantly shooting, weakening the opponents without necessarily killing them himself. The reason you want to play on a fast sensitivity is to be able to look everywhere and put shots into everyone. Members who have been playing halo for some time know how vital it is to weaken and team shot opponents. I would highly suggest setting your sensitivity from 7 to 10.

 

If your a main slayer and you always go high on the carnage report then you may want to aim a little lower on the sensitivity to increase your accuracy. Most main slayers I know play on 5 or 6 and are deadly in a BR/DMR battle. You may start on a low sensitivity but surely work your way up!

 

If your a sniper then I would suggest lowering your sensitivity to a 4. Personally it is my favorite for snipping, the accuracy is all there without completely removing your agility. If your new to Halo then 3 is where you want to start. If I am not mistaken you are default 3 at the beginning and it's a good idea to stay there until you master your BR/DMR, as you practice slowly increase your sensitivity until you find the perfect one that optimizes your game-play.

#2064 Fondest Beta Memories

Posted by Shimus on 23 January 2015 - 07:56 AM

What were your earliest Beta memories? I know I remember having this sweet blue gun I couldn't use because it was level 10 and the cap was level 7, but it made me want the game even more.

 

Finding my way around the moon as it opened in beta for a short window nobody truly paid or noticed, but I got up there and the couple people I did meet were all having fun with each other, hunting in packs. It actually felt pretty cool.

 

So how bout your memories?

This is the Best i could come up with after looking through everything available in H4 but if anyone thinks they know better representation then i am all ears. NOTE: Although it would be cool to do a Spartan Ops playthrough as Noble Team you cant do the "as they were" set in it because the Mark V is only available via DLC which does not work in Spartan Ops because 343 are lazy dream crushers...anyways i look forward to opinions

Posted by XanderElite on 08 November 2013 - 04:14 PM

Hello fellow Spartans,

 

   My name is Xander, also known as XanderElite. I finally decided to become a part of this great community/forums as of today and I noticed some things.

 

1. There are still dedicated and devoted halo members. (Thankfully)

2. We need to revive this place.

   

Anyways. I just wanted to introduce myself as I am a very competitive Halo player and have been around throughout the decade of this amazing franchise.

 

If you would like to see some of my content, check out my YouTube channel @ http://YouTube.com/XanderElite

 

I post many Halo 3 content as well as montages, compilations and best moments of me playing throughout the years.

 

~ Never Forget
