  • I just spent hours on High Charity on Legendary, with Juggernaut modded in, and I can easily say that Halo 2 Flood are the worst Flood ever. Shotgun is near useless against Flood; swinging the sword wildly is pretty much the only reliable way of dispatching nearby ones; bad hit detection on the human combat forms; Elite combat forms are randomly shielded; Flood spawn in front and behind you; a speedrun in which you must kill all the enemies is extremely luck dependent since battles between Flood and Brutes don't always have the same result. Halo 2's high learning curve really killed the fun. There was only one exception: the Juggernauts. 1 hit kill or not, they are really great to have around.

Sometimes, the Flood provides lulz, but it's intelligence is rock bottom.[/quote] I think your assessment of the Flood is completely accurate, Unanimate.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] KaneXX12 The flood is unpleasant in CE. Especially the rocket ones. [/quote]I think they were quite fun. All I can say is that Two Betrayals was insane. Who in their right mind places 6+ rocket launcher Flood on a bridge?! And I'll never be able to forget the second pulse generator. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] KaneXX12 I can cope with that though. What I hate are the Halo 2 flood. They're terrifying like some kind of thriller. Almost every flood fight is dark, the carrier forms always sneaking around, how ineffective snipers are, how it takes 9 melees just to phase them, the sentinels that come with it, etc. I wish in Halo 3 they were more challenging, but i am grateful its not some kind of horror.[/quote]Agreed.

  • In Halo CE they can be very annoying and tedious at times But I liked them in Halo 2 and 3. The sense of self preservation they had made them more interesting.

  • Plus they're an entirely different combat style. With the other games, it's the exact same as fighting Covenant, except the head is in a different spot.

  • CE Flood were the best. Gurgling noises are much more fun than screeching. Flood buddies are great companions to have around (except when they decide to get so close up to my face that I can barely move around). I didn't have to worry about accidentally headshotting them like I did in Halo 3. [Edited on 08.31.2012 12:41 AM PDT]

  • The flood scared the crap out of me. I also could never understand how those bastards would always come back to life after I killed them. But then I finally figured out that the little guys could infect an already dead body. I was young and stupid back then. If I went back in time to watch myself play Halo CE I'd probably face palm a lot.

  • Are you talking about the enemy in Halo or the forum? If it is about the forum, that's against the rules I don't hate the Flood. I think they're fun to kill
