Good to stand your ground, man. Last game I was egged to get was Diablo 3, and I'll curse the day I gave in until the end of time.

Sounds good man. I have gotten a few friends into it since I last posted but I do tend to play alone as of now.

Everyone jumped ship for Blops2 becuase it was "more realistic" lol. Now noone plays either and their reasoning for not playing Blops2 was that it's stupid and ridiculous, which is exactly what I knew it was going to be which is why I was steadfast when I was egged on to get it.

I haven't picked this up since DS3 came out. I still haven't finished AC3 yet. I just don't have much time to play games.

When I get back into it, I'll PM my GT if you are still playing.

Quick update:

Hit 130 the other day and finished Spartan Ops Season 1 last night. I definitely enjoyed it but wonder where they can go from here.

Also played the shit out of Grifball since it came out. Love that game, regardless of my shitty internet. The ability to throw the ball allows tons of crazy fun and tactics. Definitely the most fun with a full group who understand how to play well.

My invite still stands from the previous post.

Episode 6 Spartan Ops was released Monday for those who were waiting

They've created a playlist of player-created forge maps with the intent to put some into the rotation of other playlists.

Also, this upcoming monday we get to see good ol' Grifball make a return along with some other goodies I can't remember exactly.

If you're looking for another body to play with, PM me on here you GT and I'll send you a friend request online.

I like dropping a nice hologram running past a corner to get someone to use up his ammo before I come around.

There's always that intense moment where you fall for that crap and just sigh while saying "damn" and want to fist-bump the guy for fooling you.

Yeah, it sucks when it happens to you, but when you fool someone else with it and secure the kill? It is almost like a mini-Christmas.

I racked up about 13 hours of gameplay over my weekend. I'm still learning which loadouts work best for which map/gametype and one that suits my playstyle. I just unlocked the active camo and I think it's a cheap perk. I think it's too close to be being completely invisible. Yes, yes, you can spot people that use it but have you spotted someone that is crouched and sitting completely still? If you have then you're usually doing a double-take (Did.. I.. there's someone there), then you're dead already. cheap perk, get rid of it.. Till then I'll abuse it lol

My current goal in the game is to finish the UNSC Ordinance so for a little change from the standard Halo gametypes and to help remedy the fact that most people are straight shit at this game, I play Dominion. It's fun and frustrating, but atleast I can go positive and have all my kills with Ordinance weapons if I so choose.

That's cool. I'll catch you on sometime.

Multiplayer is a lot of fun. I've been sticking to Slayer, and learning the maps. I love choosing multiple loadouts. The smaller maps just become a chaos of death and destruction. Love it.

I might be on (Night off) around that time tonight but I'm usually sleeping at that time. Working graveyards so I usually play between 9am and 6pm your time.

You can use the noob combo to take out Knights as well. Charge up the plasma pistol, shoot the knight, then switch to DMR/BR/Carbine.

Best way to kill elites/knights on legendary is to take down their shields asap and then use a precision weapon to headshot them. Headshots are easier on the elites, but it is possible on the knights.

To take down their shields, the storm rifle and plasma pistol are ballin. then use a DMR/BR/Light Rifle/Carbine to headshot them.

-The needler works wonders. On the elites, if it explodes, they die. Can't say I've tried on a knight.

Another note for Spartan Ops: Don't be afraid to die. It will happen and as long as you use that 'life' to do as much damage to the enemy forces as possible, you'll be good. Really, I only have problems with the Prometheans so my kill order is as follows:
Watchers > Crawlers > Knights

Watchers first because it's never fun to have to kill a Knight a second time. Crawlers next because they are one shot kills. Then Knights when they are the last you need to worry about.

I've also never been a fan of using the Active Camo against AI as they always seem to know you're there regardless. Now Hologram on the other hand works freakin wonders! They fall for that shit all the time! Even if its just long enough to come out and pop a few small guys in the head and duck back behind cover, it works.

Concussion rifle; can't say I've seen one yet or remember it. I also have not played Episode 3 yet.

Once the shields are down, Elites drop easily. Its the getting the shields down fast enough that can be problematic. Especially when there are 3-4 in a group and at least one of them is carrying a fuel rod cannon. As for the needler, not a huge fan of that particular weapon.

Oh Im not afraid to die... I just dislike being respawned in the middle of a butt ton of enemies.

I use the same order for Prometheans... You really have to take out those Watchers first. The big issue with them... if Im using a precision weapon other than a sniper rifle, it takes multiple shots and they often fly out of the line of sight before they die. Unless Im just not shooting them in the right spot. If thats the case... someone fill me in on the "headshot" for Watchers.

Active Camo usually works pretty well for picking off the bad guys, but every once in awhile the AI just knows where you are and will hunt you down regardless of the camo. Active Camo didnt work so well in Episode 3 Chapter 1. I'll switch out the AC on one of my loadouts and try the Hologram.

Concussion Rifle is the Covenant weapon that works/shoots like a grenade launcher. Reddish orange color to it; only elites ever carry one.

-The needler works wonders. On the elites, if it explodes, they die. Can't say I've tried on a knight.

-Plasma cannon/turret is the most ballin weapon around. Seriously, just rip it off and go to town. Not only does it kill anything fast, but I almost believe there is a slight stun effect also.

Was it a scoped shot from the beam rifle, Nesse? An unscoped headshot from the sniper rifles actually does not do as much damage as a scoped in one does, if I remember correctly.

As for the Fuel Rod cannon, that sounds about right for an elite on Legendary: one shot to drop his shields, the next to damage his body/kill him.

I think it was scoped, but its possible it wasnt due to how close I was. I get that it will take 2 shots, one to drop the shields and one for the kill. I would very much accept that. Only thats not the case. In both cases... The fuel rod cannon and the beam rifle 2 shots did not kill the elite.

I have been having a blast with Spartan Ops. Finished the first two Episodes on Legendary and the weeklies that go with them. Started on Episode 3 last night. Not a fan of the respawn placement or the fact that active camo only works sometimes. I cant count how many times I have been respawned in the middle of enemy forces only to be killed before I could even turn around or get my bearings. Worse is when I immediately use the camo and they still make a beeline for me. Worse still is when this happens with 2 wraiths, as was the case last night.

On a final note.... the concussion rifle.... does this thing kill ANYTHING? I mean... besides me.

I picked up the game a few days after release because i ordered it cheaply from overseas.

I have yet to start the campaign, as i plan to have the nostalgia feel of running through the entire thing in 4 player co-op mode, just like i used to LOVE to do in Halo 3.

I jumped on multiplayer, and found myself hooked for a few hours easily. I remember the first days of Reach's multiplayer, in which i had already decided i didn't like the Multiplayer. It didn't feel like Halo, this game DOES.

It relies on skill like Halo 2/3, while allowing newer players some nice stuff to keep them on (Ordinance drops in Infinity, more vehicles and weapons, armour abilities that aren't so vital to gameplay).

All in all, worth the $55 AUD i put down for it, will look forward to playing this over the years

Beat the first episode of Spec Ops on Legendary with a friend. Twice we had to start over due to an enemy being stuck inside of a rendered object, making them impossible to hit. The first one we tried for a good 20 minutes before giving up.

Did a couple multiplayer games over the weekend as well. It's a freaking blast. I can now say the game is worth it. Go buy it now, if you haven't already.
