    Plasma pistol EMP needs to come back. Alt fire is still very situationally useful, but in any other situation where it wouldn't be effective I would literally want to carry anything but the plasma pistol

    I'm kind of mad that my best chance to get this last challenge for the event is to die a lot to make sure the enemy gets a killing spree and then hope that I manage to get them. And then repeat a bunch.

    Edit: I have set the enemy to Lightish Red and my team to Green. Works pretty well, though only because I have no color blindness.

    It has now been four days

    I have not gotten a single stockpile match

    Somehow being given an easy challenge the game actively prevents you from completing is worse than being given an impossible skill-based one

    Ranked into Diamond 1, I wish we hadn't played our first 5 test matches on launch day. We just got destroyed, doing the 5 today was a cakewalk.

    Any benefits to going through ranked, other than just even gameplay?

    I did ranked at launch as well and I felt like I came up against monsters. Hopefully this means Ive got a decent chance to progress up the ladder a bit.

    Yeah that first day of not playing a halo since reach and then being mixed with everyone I think was just rough.

    I don't think there is any benefit, the gamemodes are all BR and no motion sensor.

    I was today years old when I accidentally figured out the mini rocket launcher has a lock on mode you have to activate with the zoom button.

    so for the current event, you can only unlock seven things, right?

    That seems to be the case. Gotta make sure people can't play and do something else.

    My final weekly challenge to get the reward is to get 5 killing sprees in fiesta.

    Maybe the thought was that it would tie into the challenge of interrupting them? So far I've gotten two before dying instantly to rockets or something, so I think this is doable for me.

    Ran into my first couple AFK farmers this morning. Not surprised at all to see them.

    It's kind of lame that getting 10 kills without dying still only counts for 1 killing frenzy.

    Man, some of the clips you guys are posting are making me want to try playing on controller.

    Either I am having persistent subtle lag, or there is zero bullet magnetism/aim assist for mouse and keyboard. There have been so many times where I swear I have landed multiple headshots during the point in a one-on-one fight where neither of us have shields, only to lose to one single pop from my enemy's pistol.

    I am getting somewhat frustrated because something feels wrong here, and I don't know if the blame is on me, my network, the server, or the game itself.

    Edit: My current suspicion is on latency or something of the sort, because I'm also getting quite a few moments of turning a corner for cover and then dying to the enemy that could no longer see me.

    You aren’t using a BT mouse I assume?

    The one thing I found made a big dif to help tracking was FOV to 90 and then there is a Weapon Offsets setting at the bottom of the UI menu. I have the weapons tucked into the bottom right corner of my screen and it really seems to help.

    It’s like some sort of magic, I was doing maybe 1-1.5 KD when looking at the external stat tracker site and now most games I’m 2-3 KD. (Not the KDA stat in game)

    I turned on mouse acceleration but left it at default settings. Some people were saying this helped but I didn’t notice any improvement.

    Image for what to set it to.

    My one friend on console said it really made a difference for him as well.

    It sounds silly but the feeling was very noticeable, so much so I was wondering if something else is tied to this.

    It appears that, after you finish all your weeklies, they give you an EXTRA WEEKLY for 5 killing sprees in fiesta. Admittedly not the most absurd one, but COME ON. You don't get the weekly item unless you finish the one they HID FROM YOU.

    I have FOV set to max to match other fps games, but I had no idea about this particular setting.

    I'll test it out later and report back in!

    Basically I need to find five matches where my opponents are terrible. YAY. I have lost interest in the campaign at this point.

  • AvalonGuardAvalonGuard Registered User regular
    Considering the campaign is not going to be tied into the monetization system I’m still pretty gung-ho, and I even still enjoy playing multi, so I’m in for the long haul, so to speak.

    Zero improvement, turns out.

    I was initially hopeful, considering I jumped into training mode and was knocking out headshots like no tomorrow. Went to actual gameplay, feeling went back to before.

    Then I went and compared the bot practice playlist to the training mode bots, and same thing: training mode felt great without a connection needed, but the matchmade one made me feel like my shots weren't hitting when they should.

    Seems that my constant 40-ish ms ping that I have is what is standing in the way of my enjoying this game. Well, enjoying it more, that is.

    Is there a way that people around here play together? The OP is from....2014 so that is a little outdated.

    I don't think you're even guaranteed to end up on the same fire team if you join a match as one. The multiplayer is a very pretty early access game.

  • DysDys Registered User regular
    Anyone know if there's going to be any significant updates to the multiplayer when the full game launches?

    I was wondering how much of what we have right now is the beta brought back as opposed to final product. I know it's very complete as is though, I'm not holding my breath for any major changes.

    Some things have been identified as bugs, but as I understand it, this is functionally the launch.

    Edit:

    I finally got the last weekly. Hilariously, it ended on a Fiesta match where my team was up against a team that clearly is not great at the game, because I got 22 kills after I went on a freaking rampage with melee power weapons. Got my first and possibly last Running Riot - 15 kills one life.

    Finished my weekly man getting killing spree required some luck, some good maps, and some pretty cowardly play.

    That's the way it was last week, though last weeks was more hilarious "do 15 matches" where its like "damn wish I had this during my last challenges."

    5 killing sprees in Fiesta is definitely getting annoying. So many near successes, then Fiesta says "nah, we gonna give the enemy 3 hammers."

    I hope they fix some of this challenge design going forward.

    Edit: Oh neat, finished the 5 killing sprees to unlock the last challenge which is also 5 killing sprees. Thanks Bungo I mean 343.

    That's weird I never had 5 killing sprees roll up, but it did take me way way too long to finish my kill an oddball carrier, motherfuckers kept dropping that shit!

    I unlocked the base armor and considered it good enough.

    I expect to play Halo Infinite only sparingly, see what 343i does with the game over the next couple months. It's fun, but it's quite grabbing me like most of the previous Halo games.

    I did like this event for getting a feel for a lot of weapons I normally don't get to use/wouldn't take, like the shock rifle.

    Another way to say "Their UI is bad". They should have the final challenge in the weekly list, and just have it grayed out with a note that you have to unlock it, instead of requiring me to track down and read that wherever it is.
