It looked amazing. I should probably finish the campaign so I can get used to all the weapons. Sometimes I get killed by something and I just don't know wtf hit me.

How about this one? I thought I saw the grenade indicator pop up and the next thing I know it is like a cluster bomb went off.
I *think* that is the forerunner grenades. They, if I read the description right, explode in a circle (don't know if it does damage) and when that circle, which you can see, collapses like a black hole it kills anyone in it.
It looks like an orange version of that health replenisher globe, but smaller obviously. I don't see the point of them because anyone with a brain should see giant orange area and avoid it.
Actually looking at it, its the forerunner version of the sniper rifle. I should have meant destroyed instead of blown up.
OH! Yeah that weapon is sick. It doesn't have many shots..i think 6 but it is a one hit kill no matter where you hit em
Pulse Grenades are terrible...im not sure what they even do
I just stick with plasma grenades. Loving going in big team slayer and blowing up a full warthog. So many points!
Maybe. I thought there was several explosions, not one big one.
My 2 thoughs were, cluster grenade or I was unlucky enough to walk into 3 or more grenades at once.
If you get in a huge firefight, especially in big team slayer, then multiple grenades is not out of the realm of possibility.
Bump: SWAT will be entering the playlist next week!!! Time for some headshots!!

Played it online last night. Its pretty good. Not sure why they are trying to make it so much like COD.
I can't hear the opponents talking either.
Matchmaking and party system is really cluttered also. Halo 2s system was a lot easier.
Also If you want to avoid frustration over spawns, avoid big team slayer. The AI obviously doesn't take into effect teammates engaged in firefights because at least 5 times I spawned and died right away because I had spawned in the path of bullets.
I was gonna try to get you in last night but we had a full team. You gonna be on tonight?
On every night
But yeah I was playing with a few friends of mine from Huntsville.
We may be having a huge lan sometime really soon, once everyone gets comfortable with H4
Awesome. Lan parties are the tits. Reminds me of the good ole days of Halo 1.
Yep. I did not start playing until H2, but everyone I know played H1 back in the day
Yeah man Halo 1 is probably my all time favorite game. We use to play it on xbconnect before xbox live came out. Halo 1 pistol FTW!
I worked for a construction company back in the day that worked out of state. We set up LAN parties in opposing hotel rooms.
We always played team slayer in the biggest indoor map. Get the high ground and hold it with the pistol until someone grabbed the invisibility and shotgun tried to take it back for the opposing team. We played that for hours, day after day after day...
Yep. Good times man. I love the BR but I miss pistol sniping from across the maps.
I am getting my ass handed to me in multiplayer right now. It will take me a while to get good.
When your doing bad..take a few minutes and grab something to drink, watch a TV show, then go back. Always works for me
There are definitely two big differences between 4 and its predecessors right now:
1. It takes way fewer shots to get killed. I've been dying a lot, but that's not a surprise 'cause I'm out of practice, but everyone is dying a lot.
2. The melee distance is a lot shorter. I've whiffed my fair share of times already.
This is all true. But everyone hated the lunges that people would get with the melee. Using sprint and lunging was so nubby...I like the shots taking less, that is why there are not many small type maps in the game. Ive learned that staying around your teammates can help get a lot of multi kills (its rare that I can take on 2 BRs at once)
Also strafing is very hard, placing shots on someone moving is not very hard. Speeding up the side to side movement would help this game imo.
