XMNR: We already know that the Battle Rifle will return with Halo 4 and now 343 Industries confirmed on Friday that the DMR will return while the Bubble Shield will not.
Oh no bubble shield LOL!!! It actually gave you a fighting chance when you think about, well of course the enemy can still walk in LOL!!! Hope they still have the Jetpacks.
Dang, I really liked the bubble shield.
Me too:( I'm gunna miss em.
True but 343 have removed them from as a loadout in Reach anyways. I actually liked it:( Hope they don't kill jetpacks
I would have liked a crossover between bubble shield and that personal Armor from Reach
hopefully they take out armor lock, that was completely broken. At least they are bringing back the battle rifle cause the dmr sucks
do you dislike it because vehicles explode when you try to ram someone ? :P
*Grabs ghost* "I GOT YOU NOW MUTHAF-" *Dies from Armor Lock. Teabagging begins.* It's such a harsh, harsh feeling. >.< lol
well i never had a problem with it, i think its a fair advantage on the playing field to anyone using the armour lock, i dont use it though because i rather use the run ability or try to jump if i can
no because people wuss out and hide in the armor lock when they know they can not win. I honestly did not like any of the special abilities couple were silly but took a lot of the fun out of the multiplayer.
then tell me what would u use the armour lock for then?
Armor lock & bubble sheilds suck because they slow down/stops the flow of gameplay. as a game designer, i can say that this is a bad form of gameplay to incorporate.
Sounds good to me i cant wait for this game.
WEAK - get rid of JPs and leave bubble there was nothing better than tossing one having a shot gun and someone standing outside the bubble debating rather to enter the arena with you...
and that exactly why we dont want them. they are cheap and they only minimaze the skill gap for players. they slow down the flow of gameplay because you must wait for the user to exit the bubble or risk being killed like a bitch with shotgun/mauler/sword.
Nothing can stop the grenade spam onslaught now.
It dont matter anyways the BR will always shit all over the DMR
I prefer the DMR over the BR. The BR is to random and doesnt do as much damage as the DMR. DMR is always precise unless you a retard that doesnt know how to use it.
lolwut. BR is super accurate. DMR (in reach) has bloom = random shot trajectories. BR: 4 shot, dead. bullets have movement time so user must aim in the direction the enemy is moving if you want all 3 bullets in the burst to hit the target, which increases the skill gap. DMR: 5 shot, dead. bullets instantly move to where you are aiming so as long as you have the reticule over their head you will hit. this requires less skill. BR wins, your argument is invalid.
I've always thought that the BR should alternate between single triple burst and auto fire since it is supposed to be a select fire weapon anyway. Make it optimized for longer ranges Treat the AR as a similar but different weapon with a higher fire rate. Keep the DMR as an alternative marksman weapon and use it a s stable semi-auto higher caliber weapon for longer ranges. There is no reason to make one burst fire only, one full auto, and one semi-auto only. Just treat them as different rifles with different characteristics and ammo. Hell, COD has multiple types of AR's Br's and SMG's so why not Halo?
The bubble shield was pretty fun, there was actually some strategy involve... if they bring back the jetpacks I will blow up the world! 343 said they have competetive aspect in mind, the jetpack completely ruined Reach, it killed any kind of map strategy whatsoever, you advance a certain way on maps to gain advantage to power weapons, then all of a sudden a whole team of jet packer noobs come flying in on top of you! Bungie ruined halo with armor lock and jetpacks. Bring back Team Slayer where you actually have to win to rank up, everybody is trying to copy COD with that experinced based ranking... a bunch of no skill players running around ranked all the way up just cause they play alot, you should only achieve the highest rank if your GOOD! The gaming world has turned into a noob friendly place, games aren't about skill anymore!
I would like to hear the podcast myself, but I don't trust the Examiner enough to download the link.
