    It just gives assists more easily. Aim better, as I am frequently told

    Assists do go towards ordnance which is something.

    Okay, quick question: how the fuck do you steal a wraith? I board but no matter what I do they blow up.

    Disable with plasma pistol, kill turret elite, jump in turret, driver comes out, steal.

    I think any other way you just blow it up.

    To be honest, it's really very difficult to aim badly in this game. The head just seems to meet the reticule with only the slightest bit of thumb coercion. Try aiming on BF3 on PC. That's where excellent aim is truly required to do well.

    Aiming is a hello of a lot easier with a mouse.

    Try Counterstrike on a pad or Max Payne 3 without assist for a proper challenge.
  • Deleted user 17 November 2012 13:19:33
    If the voting doesn't change I won't play it anymore, I really don't see the appeal in playing the same map over and over again.
    Why would you buy a new map pack as well when you never get to play them? I'm looking at you halo reach.

    Regarding the aiming, I was quite surprised last night when some dude with an AR and jetpack kept wiping the floor with me. I realised he was getting close, charging at me, flying above me and unloading the AR into my head. Very effecting at close range, mainly because he was moving too fast and erratically for my aim to keep up.

    It's common in shooters for horizontal look to be quicker than vertical, I think Halo only has one control though right? Maybe I just need to get used to looking up :)

    HALP! The first knight encounter on Legendary is smacking my bum repeatedly and I only have a choice of the pistol, AR, or the promethean equivalents. Any tips on how to kill him?

    The promethian AR... What's it called? Anyway, that takes those fuckers down at mid to close range.

    Shoot in the face. Kill everything else first then engage knight. What weapon does it have?
  • Deleted user 17 November 2012 13:51:10
    The shotgun or better yet the suppressor work well.
  • Deleted user 17 November 2012 14:16:24
    Thanks! Used the suppressor as suggested and it worked. Feel like such a noob playing this despite having completed all the previous games on legendary.

    Do the knights' shields regenerate themselves or do they need their flying friends to do it for them?
  • Deleted user 17 November 2012 14:33:11
    Regenerate themselves, have to keep up the pressure.

    A bit late since you've done it now but the Promethean pistol has a secondary shotgun charge shot, that should kill a knight in one. Getting the timing right though, that's a whole other kettle of hot water.

    The promethean pistol didn't work well for me, especially the charged shot. How does the charged shot work? Never seemed to hit anything even at close range.
  • Deleted user 17 November 2012 15:02:38
    Press and hold then release at close range, mid to long pointless.

    Up until recently I played BF3 PC... with an Xbox controller, and got good at it. Beating mouse and keyboard players. That game has no aim-assist on pc and is hard. I've since moved onto mouse myself and have further improved; but I still find aim-assisted console shooters on pad FAR easier to do well on than PC k/m shooters. Aim-assist is night and day. K/M aiming, for all its precision and speed, still doesn't compete with it, in my experience.

    Anyone jumping onto BF3 with a mouse and keyboard expecting to do well just because mouse aiming is "easier" is in for a shock.

    Max Payne Free Aim (which I beat it on) is a bad example of unassisted console control, being as Rockstar's third person shooter handles like a sack of shit, assisted or not. As do all their games.

    @Mr-Brett Yeah, I was aware of that and I'd tried it a couple of times but it seemed ineffective.

    I'm not fan of how much damage the knights can soak up. It was bad enough on heroic that I can imagine some infuriating times coming on legendary. Especially when coupled with what seems like a scarcity of ammo.

    Ah, shame. I've not used the secondary in campaign so wasn't sure how effective it'd be but it seem to kill in one at close range in MP so I expected it'd work but they are pretty solid dudes. As you say, perhaps a bit too solid. I've only played the campaign on normal and I thought they were taking a few too many shots with anything other than a power weapon.

    Just me or are some of the aiming reticules not so clear?

    Fancy filters maybe but hard to tell a lot of the time.

    I just sneak up to Knights if I can on Legendary, actually quite easy if crouch, stay to one side and normal run the last few yards. Needler is very effective. Plasma pistol then a few head shots with anything else. That sniper is two shots. Shotgun and machine gun are effective if you knock them down a peg or two as you close in. That mutli canon thing is one shot kill. Just kill everything else first and work a close quarters opportunity for Knights and give them both barrels.

    Yeah, no idea why they thought another power snipe weapon was necessary.

    Especially considering it's one shot all the time.

    Ever feel they made the Promethean weapons overpowered in MP as a horrible way to get people to try them?

    I really don't mind the Promethean weapons being over powered but I'd rather them spawned like power weapons in 3/reach. Best new weapon for me is the sticky frag launcher. The amount of kills I'm getting with Promethean vision is unreal. Plant frag...use Promethean vision...watch someone run onto frag...easy kill!

    This game has worse lag than Crysis 2.
