    Ok.

    So why did everyone seem to know so much about the Didact, including his name after just one fleeting meeting. Surely that couldn't have sat right.
    Apparently it was all covered in the Halo: Cyptum novel.

    I'm fine with expanded universe fiction and using comics, books etc, but when understanding the plot of a game actually relies on you investing in that expanded universe fiction then there's something wrong.
    It didn't, however. I followed it fine.
    Ok, you followed it fine. We get that. That you haven't explained how they knew so much suggests that either you can't figure that out either, or you have actually read the book and knew the answer anyway.

    You didn't care or notice that the narrative was sloppy and ful of plot-holes, but as a long time Halo fan who has read all the earlier non-Forerunner novels, the GSCE grade storytelling stuck out like a sore thumb for me. Halo has always been about low-grade pulp sci-fi, especially if you factor in the books, but this is pulp sci-fi fan fiction seemingly written by a 14 year old.

    I got to rank 50 last night, and I've gone for Operator specialization.  One of the new thingys you get to unlock is Wheelman, which means any vehicle you are driving or riding in is more damage resistant.

    Yeh, made it to 50 last night as well. Chose Tracker, which means I can re-roll my ordnance drops to get something more favorable.

    Also

    Little tip for ordnance is to have a loadout with the ammo perk as one of your 5 loadouts, when you die select that, then drop ordnance, you'll get extra ammo for your snipe or whatever.

    Does it tell you what bonuses you get before you choose?

    Not exactly what bonuses, but it gives a brief description of what each specialisation is.

    Close to 42 now, all challenges done daily and weekly. Is it me or is the 16 headshots in a match one broken? Popped for me despite them all being in different games...

    Played 25 plus games and prob played only 50% of the maps more than once. I really know haven, Ragnarok and the dominion map with grass everywhere really really well. There are two maps I've not played at all and several played once. Wtf is wrong with everyone.

    You've played c. 25 games. whilst Haven, Ragnarok and Exile crop up too much, you should probably play some more...!

    @jambii267 Same as me. Just went on and still can't connect to the Halo 4 servers.

    The Bungie comment was ironic, right? :)

    I had issues with the old Jams on Sunday, but then my router was shite and I bought a new one. Now I can play a-ok. It's clear there are some server issues still hanging around, however.

    Despite the fact you've been deleted [?] I am going to respond that level means nothing in terms of skill - people play Spartan Ops for the XP.

    Deleted for being annoyingly thick?

    Anyway which specialisations are available in the vanilla version of the game? I'm at level 49 now so will unlock this in the next couple of days.

    I'll never get my Orc looking the same again.

    What do those two do? And once you choose one are you locked into it for good?

    Specialisations work like this:

    At 50, you pick one. This is your spec. for the next 10 levels. At 60 (or 70, 80, etc) you will have unlocked all the armour for that spec (purely cosmetic) and the support mod for it: these are just like any other support mods (Awareness, Ordnance Priority, etc), but they provide different bonuses. Once you have finished one spec, you pick another, and off you go again.

    Wetwork - leads to a mod that reduces footfall noise, makes your assassinations quicker, and you don't show up so easily on Prom Vis, or 'the radar of noobs'.

    Operator - leads to a mod that makes any vehicle you are in (driver, passenger, or gunner), more resistant to EMP/damage. Going by the tiny buffs of Shielding etc, I can't imagine it'll be that powerful. I hope not...

    Cheers, think Wetwork will be my first choice. I hope they make the others available to everyone at some point because I like the sound of the one that lets you re-roll your ordnance drop.

    I'll never get my Orc looking the same again.

    Yeah they said they would.

    If you played before 20/11/12, or had the LE edition, you unlocked them all.

    Oh, but the date criteria only applied to the USA, and Asia, I think. Cheers 343.

    Why they limited them, who knows.

    Because they are tards.

    Four days and I still can't play multiplayer or Spartan Ops, FFS!

    You also, IIRC, level up immediately when you complete a spec. For instance, hit 50, you choose a spec and go to level 51. Get to 60, you pick a new spec and go to 61. And so on.
  • Deleted user 28 November 2012 16:46:26
    It's a shame how most of the helmets in the game look terrible. I had Solider, I have War Master right now and I'm waiting for Hazop to unlock.

    As unlikely as it is to work, have you tried getting someone who can get on fine to invite you to their game? Just a thought, as I say unlikely to work.

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi

    That didn't work for me, Fawkes. I tried to join in Halo Monday and none of the invites would get me in a game. Hopefully it won't be 4 days in a row this evening when I get in...

    Days like today make me want to just smash my controller and stop playing.

    2 games in a row I've had a K/D of more than -15. Just had a game where literally everything I aimed at got me killed. Game before, the lag was so bad that I was dead whenever I could see someone.

    Still managed the 9 wins at Slayer, but not through my own record.
