Third-Person Option

I'd love the option to see a third-person view of my character in combat areas - even if it disables combat features while inside the view. It'd be nice to explore and check myself out in full armour every now and then without going into the menu. I used to do that quite frequently when exploring in Skyrim, even though I fought in first-person. Anybody else want to see this? It's a small thing, but it would be cool nonetheless.

  • Yeah, I'd enjoy that. Halo Reach had a third person camera mode in the Theater that looked great, despite a misplaced reticle. Bungie could definitely make this work if they wanted.

  • I believe R3 isn't mapped to anything so that would be great if we could have it used to switch out between 3rd and 1st person. Totally agree.

    • I completely agree. Borderlands also did this. Where they are like "Hey you can customize your character....that you will see 10% of the time, aren't you glad we spent all this time designing this thing you never see?" To me, putting all this effort into armor, then making the game first person is like designing a randomizer to make the world's coolest underwear, then going to work for 8 hours, unless your job requires you to go to work in your underwear.

    • I think that they should allow for a 3rd person perspective when not playing in pvp and keep pvp first person view only. The reason why is because a person playing 3rd person may have a distinct advantage over someone playing first person mode when it comes to overall surrounding awareness on small maps this would make 3rd person the better option.

    • Would make a good game great. Add a toggle between first and third. Since the game originally was going to be third person.

      • Not sure if this can be possible at this stage of the game development. This game's combat and weaponary is built from the ground up for a first-person perspective. Its what Bungie does best, remember they made first person shooters a thing on consoles with Halo CE

        • this might have negitive effect on your gameplay, looking down the sights alows you to have more percision with your shots. but third person games gerneraly only have a crossarrow whitch would be like a permenet hipfire. good though but i dont know how they would do it.

          • Yeah, what's the point of this all these items if u can't view them on 3rd person view.

          • Totally agree. One of the staples of MMORPGs (which this is trying to be), is the sense of visual feedback regarding your characters gear and growth. Seeing that on a status screen or when buying gear in the Tower doesn't have the same effect. Its quite strange that we can see how cool other players look when running around, yet never ourselves. Also, FPS hands and movements never look quite right; the placement is always off. Just do an over the shoulder crosshair like ESO games use. I don't see what the issue is.

          • I think people don't understand that he's talking about story mode and missions only. Obviously this would be ridiculous in PvP.

          • I want 3rd person so badly. When we're exploring why can't we be in 3rd person? Why can't I fight through the story in 3rd person? I understand for PVP, but you should have the option everywhere else. Please Bungie, make it happen! I want to see my character.

          • Did most of you not see the part where they said the third person should only be for story and explore? Everyone here is in accord that PvP should never have that option. I would love a TPS view in the free roam map

            This has always been the thing in Bungie's design, you haven't realized that yet. They always have third person view when in vehicles in their other games. And they always did put you in third person the moment you use a Super because that is the same concept as throwing down a bubble shield in Halo Reach. They are using the similar design from their other games, don't expect them to drastically change it.
