    FF is good training for reminding you just how fucking weak you are against more than 2/3 mobs. Gotta be quick and careful.

    It's also actually a reasonably good way to get to grips with some of the new weapon tunings, without the stress of going up against other players. I have a better handle on the AR now after a bit of FF.

    Headshots or else, with the AR.

    @WhoIsJohnGalt You can rank up (and down!) throughout the season.

    EDIT

    Yup. I was saying last night, if you're body-shotting up close as usual, you may as well just throw a nade at your own feet :D

    Well, the latest loot crate seems to all but confirm my suspicions re: Cortana's actions in Halo 5.

    I actually got a snapshot last night :o

    Granted, it was up close and pure fluke, but I think I'm starting to get a bit better with the snips.

    I definitely like this a lot more now they've nerfed the BR, DMR and grenades.

    Ugh. Playing on expanded is so shit.

    I reckon they'll make more changes to the BR. Seems like almost everyone hates it

    Don't know why they don't just keep it pistol starts.

    They're not changing it are they..? Pistol starts are best in arena, for sure. BTB is ok with BR starts now they've killed the BR though :p

    The BR feels less laser-like than before, but not suffered for it; certainly not like H3 BR or Reach bloom. Not tried BTB for a while though.

    Apparently 343 have hired Jeremy Cook as Art Director. He was the art lead on Halo Wars 2, which I thought looked great and hewed a little closer to classic Halo designs in some ways.

    I think we've seen 343 making a point of including older designs into Halo 5 as time goes on, like adding in Reach armour sets, etc. I wonder if this will signal a bit of a shift further back in that direction for Halo 6?

    FWIW, I'm not one of those people that hates the newer designs. I like all of Blue Team and love Vale and Buck's armours (though, obviously Buck's is very ODST-inspired to begin with).

    EDIT Turns out Jeremy Cook has been at 343 a while - I thought I recognised the name, actually. Looks like this is a promotion, but I think Sparth is still there..? Slightly confused.

    Either way, this probably bodes well for those that dislike the Halo 4/5 designs, as you can now look at Halo Wars 2 as an example of where the art style is going to go in the future.

    Not Halo 5 related and I don't know if anyone cares, but Halo Reach now runs much better on Xbox One.

    Seems it's been patched, and is now on par and in some areas better than on the 360. It's still not quite perfect, but there were certain areas in the campaign (on 360) where the framerate really chugged, well those bits are much smoother now from what I've played so far.

    Also it's a really good campaign, and it don't look too bad for a 7 year old game either.

    Reach is the only Halo campaign that ever had any sense of a cohesive narrative for me.

    The first time I played the original Halo I was blown away by the graphics, open world and driving around in the Warthog, but I had no idea what was going on story wise.

    Halo 2, I was even more confused. Actually, having not played it since the original Xbox release, I still don't know what was going on.

    By the time Halo 3 rolled around on X360 (which I randomly bought the legendary edition of despite not being a Halo uber-fan) I had swoted up on the story online and it made a little more sense.

    Reach, I understood exactly what was going on and why. It looked great, the combat totally clicked for me, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Easily the best in the series.

    Not played 4 or 5 yet so not sampled the non-Bungie titles. Now I have an X1X though, I plan to get the Chief Collection, go straight to Halo 4, then move on to Halo 5.

    Halo CE is pretty simple if you pay attention to what Cortana and Guilty Spark are saying :D

    Halo 2's story was a bit of a mess because they ended up cutting a couple of levels that really needed to be there (like one where they actually introduced the Gravemind).

    For Halo 4, I have one tip: pay attention to what the Librarian is telling you :)


    I played like six hours straight of Halo 5 MP today :|
    Kind of want to get back on it.

    @Pierre2k

    For Halo 4, I’d recommend at least watching the Spartan Ops cutscenes after you beat it.

    Quite a bit happens in between 4 & 5, and Halo 5’s intro doesn’t do a great job of explaining all that. Spartan Ops takes place directly after Halo 4 so should help it make more sense.

    Why are the spawns so broken in super fiesta?? It's basically team slayer on team slayer maps, yet I just spawned in the centre of blue base on truth while there was an enemy crouching in blue sneaky!

    None of the Halo stories are particularly complex, even 4, although that erred too much into wider-lore, hence 5's curtailment.

    Halo 1 is very, very straightforward :D

    Just had a 20/0 game in Super Fiesta :) I had a Nornfang towards the end.

    Really needed that, as I'd just had a couple of infuriating slayer matches against teams.

    That's a fair amount of Hydra kills. Hate getting killed by that thing.
