Halo 4 and its problems

They have a game named Halo 4 with a very strong core and a very nice netcode. Good Job! But, there are blatantly idiotic things in this game that makes me wonder "Why did they do this?" 1. DMR - This 3x weapon zoom BREAKS literally every map. This weapon has "STANDOFF" written all over it. How can a utility weapon have such control of the map? Let's imagine a map such as Ragnarok..... I can cross map people from a safe location, and get POWER WEAPONS without even moving. Why would I even touch the BR if the weapon can not cross map? If you wanted the DMR to be a far ranged weapon, 343 should at least have the knowledge to lower the bullet magnetism 2. Random Ordnance Drops - Tell me, who the hell thought of making RODs. Their thinking of how this helps new players is extremely wrong. When a new player finds a weapon on the map, he expects it to be at the same spot the next time it spawns. Why the hell do weapon drops need to be random? What good does it do? What balance does it bring? The fact is, it brings negative value to the game 3. Maps - In Halo 4, there are literally 3 4v4 maps that work: Haven, Solace, and Abandon... 343 make a map pack saying they wanted to fill a big void in big maps? BIG MAPS? They shipped 6 huge maps, and only 4 4v4 maps. I understand they are coming out with a map pack with small maps, but it's too damn late now. At least add forge maps into 4v4 slayer playlists. 4. Playlist Management - How did 343 expect the several objective playlists to survive on its own? They already removed KoTH, and Oddball has less than 2K players. 5. Can not turn off Sprint/Instant Spawn - I am sure Bravo has forced 343 to work on this problem, but why was this not available off of launch? Instant Spawn does not "speed" up the game. It BREAKS the game? This is not CoD where people die in 1 second. This is Halo, where shields recharge slowly and encounters take 2-3 seconds. 6. Flinch - Why the hell can we not get unscoped when zoomed? Once again, this is not CoD where flinch works. This is HALO. HALO AND CoD ARE TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT GAMES. Flinch is extremely random and breaks the skill that comes in winning a battle from far range down two shots. 7. File Share - Why isn't File Share working? Halo 3 had a working file share system at launch..........in 2007 Now I understand that I should post this in 343's forums, but I'm banned permanently. Add more problems that need to be addressed while this game has some life in it. Also, if you like fair, balanced settings, MLG will be coming out with a playlist soon which may include the 4sk BR.

  • Weapon fixes: DMR: Same KT. 6sk. Less scope zoom. Terr-bad at CQC. Carbine: 7sk. Slightly Faster KT than DMR. Bolt Shot: Decrease Charge shot range. Increase charge up time. Light Rifle Unscoped: More Auto Aim. Random ODs: Stahp. What be the point of this? Flinch Fix: You are unscoped when shot at except when Stability is on.

  • Stop whining and enjoy the game, yes the flinch needs to be fixed. Boltshot could definitely use a big nerf and the Dmr is not really OP.... Halo 4 is a great game but yes I agree it needs some fixes. I enjoying a lot so far!

  • Surely beginners would see the word "random" in "Random ordnance drop" and see that it won't be guaranteed to be in the same place next game ? It gives them a chance to get their hands on some power weapons every once in a while. As for the flinch thing, it's progressive, so successive shots will cause more significant flinch than single shots. Personally, I was always frustrated when I was just about to headshot a guy down range but was unscoped by an easy body-shot. Saying that Halo and CoD are two different games isn't really backing up what you're trying to say.

  • what is the point of this, honestly? these are all opinions. sure it has its flaws, like anything else. c'mon, let's be real here. do you really expect to like every aspect of a game? probably not? now what? let's vent about it in hopes to... what? ... get 343 to cater to you? you don't really think anything is going to change, right?

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] AdmiredAcorn The DMR, BR, and Carbine have the exact same kill times firing as fast as the weapon allows. The BR's spread makes headshots easier and quicker if you pop the shield and hit the head in the same burst, but it a bit less accurate.[/quote] [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KyAEuku4ISY&list=UUirJe7eFxoaq8lkoIoFNt2g&index=3]um...[/url]

  • This is what I don't agree with in Halo 4 Snipers can stay zoomed while getting shot. And then the Rogue spec keeps you from flingching when shot. WTF.....

Also I miss having other weapons around the map, but I guess that kind of defeats the purpose of loadouts? Still, I'd like to see it.

  • 1: I disagree highly. 2: I agree with you there. 3: I think all the maps are amazing. 4: They are probably going to update the playlists. 5: I agree this is a problem. 6: I don't mind flinch either way. 7: They are working on it. You need to stop complaining. What do you want us to do about it? [Edited on 12.13.2012 4:42 PM PST]
