A player deflects a rocket with a grenade throw.
so freaking great!
Beats any grenade throw or silly "super/slide jumps" I've seen to date.
gamers are really using that video replay in halo 3 eh....
now you can't imagine halo 3 without...
that was awesome tho, all of these are freak timing events, i wouldn't try this
These vids are only going to get better with so many people playing Halo
Ah the physics... sometimes i hate them, other times i love them.
However, all the time, they're freaking amazing! Thank god for replay too!
Ive always said the physics in Halo were better than any other console game or computer game for that matter.
Call me crazy, but the explosion of a grenade COMPLETELY changing the course of a rocket doesn't seem like accurate physics at all. ESPECIALLY if said grenade blast doesn't kill someone if they are standing 4 goddamn feet away from it.
waffloes i know ur new to next gen gaming but plz dont show ur up u self plz man to much its called physics not a simulation of real life .
I know you are new to the english language and all, but still TRY to make an attempt to type it out properly.
"plz dont show ur up u self plz" I would if I EVEN KNEW WHAT THAT SAID. Hell's sake man..
Second, I own all three systems. How about you chuckles?
Everyone is OOOH AHHHing over these physics, and saying how AWESOME they are and how they are among the best in the industry.
OK. So the SAME GRENADE BLAST that forces a rocket being shot STRAIGHT DOWN to change it's course doesn't KILL THE GUY STANDING RIGHT NEXT TO IT?!
For the love of god people. Stop pitching tents in your pants over this crap. The physics in Halo 3 are a sham.
So what about a real soldier in a real war that trows a real grenade that explodes and deflects a real RPG? Your saying that isn't possible but they have a real tank that has counter measures that send out a controlled explosion to deflect RPGs. http://www.military.com/
Lighten up Waffles!
There's a fine line between realistic physics and fun physics.
Halo 3 has great fun physics... as demonstrated by that video.
Do you have a direct link that talks about that tank? After watching Myth Busters try to soften the impact of a falling dummy with a 500lb bomb...I'm skeptical that the shockwave of a blast can completely deflect ANYTHING with any kind of considerable mass.
Now don't leave out the other important information in my post to benefit your own argument. Like mainly the fact that the GUY STANDING RIGHT NEXT TO IT (I put it in all caps so you wouldn't miss it again) is still walking around after the grenade blast.
Halo 3 has some ridiculous crap in it, like people getting shot 3 times with a sniper rifle and smiling back at you afterwards, and standing on top of an exploding grenade and managing to kill you with a melee afterwards. stuff like that.
I'm just providing a Counter argument to the statement made above:
"i've always said the physics in Halo were better than any other console game or computer game for that matter."
I never said they didn't have their moments. Honestly, I think this video is freaking awesome. But to say they are better than any other game?
Ok, I realize I'm standing in the middle of halo fanboy central. So I'll stop now.
I simply disagree that Halo 3's physics are worth the accolades they are receiving. That is all.
Have a nice day.
Damn wasted my bubbles on lame crap. heh.
Anyway about this stryker. I don't see anything that explains how it uses controlled blasts to alter the course of an rpg. Just that it can take a direct hit like it's nobodys business. Maybe I missed it in that article.
OK found ERA. NEAT stuff. But still...How this is supposed to provide a counter argument to my claims that a blast can alter the course of rocket is a huge stretch. It basically just softens the blow, not change the course of anything.
It's called "The Stryker"
Its called explosive reactive armour on tanks, its been about for several years. ( i think the russians invented it)
I saw the mythbusters episode too, it was good.
But the exploding cement mixer one was better.
I agree with you. It's cool to see the ingame physics or an attempt to show some form of physics in HALO3, but you are correct, the physics seen in this particular video is not accurate (not even remotely)
If the rocket or missile was coming in at say 300-400 MPH, the force required to change it path 90 degrees as it did in the video would have destroyed the missile in the process. This type of explosion could have possibly altered the course of the missile, but only slightly as the speed and mass of the missile would have been to great for its tejectory to be changed by 90 or so degrees by a simple grenade blast.
So, kudos to you for acknowledging that, and kudos for halo3 for at least attempting to add some sort of physics engine into the game.
Bubbles to you wafflesID for standing your ground.
Edit: In the case of reactive armour as the above like shows, this technology doesn't redirect incoming missiles, it counteracts the explosive damage by doing the same things as the assulting incoming munition impacts. Kinda like freefalling to the ground and just before you hit or land on your feet you fire off a jetpack and put a cushion of air between you and the surface that you are going to impact.
Common birds and parachuters use this type of method on a daily basic, (if you've notice the swoop affect birds make just before landing.)
This is not the same thing that happened in the halo video. Thus not a valid argument.
Talk about low res grapics and serious framerate problems.
nah r-tard its called slow motion hahahaha ur realy daft aye =)
Did this moron REALLY just base his opinion of Halo 3's graphics and frame rate off of a HIGHLY COMPRESSED tiny streaming video?
I mean just...wow.
Most definitely priceless. That is sooo funny. It makes it even better that the deflected rocket got a double kill.
Kind of funny that people are commenting on the quality of Halo 3 off an obviously compressed and tiny video. And I'm glad Halo 3 is not a simulation shooter, it adds to the fun and there are a lot of crazy moments to be caught on video.
jaw officially dropped...
Well, its been fun talking to you all. Its been about 12 hours since I've gotten my Halo 3 fix.
wouldnt the explosion blow up the rocket.i mean if its that close wouldnt it.awsome vid dood way beter than all those other skill/lucky vids by a long shot.hey if you stuck a grenede to a rocket would it then explode?after seeing this vid i dont no.it would be awsome if somone shot a rocket acros the map and people stuck grenedes on it and as it traveled across the map it went to close to different people and the grenede explosions killed them but the rocket kept on its path to go blow up a different gruop of retards a few seconds later.*off to try this.wish me luck trying to stick a rocket*
lmao! That was funny as hell @waffles good for you man for standing your ground, your opinion is your own and your neither wrong nor right. Halo's physics make for great fun but their hardly realistic,a grenade would blow up the rocket, not re-direct it. but it's funny to laugh at and that's what matters when it comes to video games.
That was a good one. The saved film feature is one of the best features of this game. I'm sure many games will copy this idea soon enough.
awesome! dont think i could do that.
and playing rocket baseball.
thanks for the post....the great thing about whole thing is that the deflected and resulted in a double kill....YATZHEE!
omg, why does that never happen to me!
bet he couldn't do it twice!
That is awesome, I love it :)
