    I did love how in the event I had a dude just get in a ghost and I skewered his ass. Boy when everyone has power weapons vehicles can be dangerous!

    I haven't bought the battle pass for one simple reason. The second I spent money on an otherwise free game I lose all interest in it.

    Benefit of their battlepass system is it doesn't go away, if you pick it up and then decide to take a break for a couple years and come back, it'll still be there for you to progress on.

    So grapple is the best anti vehicle thing in the game right? And just sort of the best thing in the game in general?

    I wonder what the logic was behind removing plasma pistol emp?

    I'm guessing it's so the shock weapons / grenades have some utility against vehicles, rather than have all the old players using just the plasma pistol forever.

    Removing the emp is one of the weirder design decisions because they also brought in the plasma carbine, which has actually turned out to be one of the better shield strippers in the game, and better than the plasma pistol. The ravager alternate fire is a better shield stripper now than the pistol, fer chrissakes!

    After a lot of fiesta play and more time overall with the game, I’ve managed to find proper uses for literally every weapon except the plasma pistol.

    As far as anti-vehicle is concerned, the grapple shot is certainly good, if dangerous. But you can deal with vehicles in a lot of ways now; shock rifle and disruptor in particular have interesting applications.

    I don’t know if the grapple is the best thing in the game but it’s certainly a hell of a multiplier: grapple + sword on pretty much any of the smaller maps is a pile of near guaranteed kills

    Yeah the grapple is the best for vehicles, like repulsor is fun but definitely not as useful.

    I like the Disruptor for vehicles but that takes up a weapon slot.

    For 4v4 on small maps I still want thrusters over grapple.

    There’s very little shitty equipment which is nice. The drop wall is definitely my least favorite, but I can fit everything else into my play pretty regularly. Thruster + mangler is so kinetic and fun!

  • DisrupterDisrupter Registered User regular
    I still don’t know how anyone lands shots with the carbine. If the enemy moves at all the bursts all miss.

    But you can’t lead a target who is strafing unless you just guess which way they are going to strafe? Maybe in engaging grin too far away? But even pretty close it seems like a strafe dodges the burst.

    You can lead their strafing enough to catch them with it. They can just...strafe in the opposite direction though if they react fast enough or product your fire rate correctly.

    I have found that the gun works good to surprise someone with, eat their shield, and then follow up with a pistol or something for a fast headshot kill.

    Beyond that, it seems like a fairly weak weapon with the slow projectile travel time.

    Drop wall greatly increased in value for me when I realized that you can shoot through friendly ones, while enemies cannot.

    You know, unlike every mechanic akin to it from previous games.

    Rockets do not go through friendly ones though, I learned that the hard way.

    I really enjoy the shield wall in oddball though. Lots of times I’ve thrown those down and been able to repel the enemy.

    Hmm, yeah, I should consider using them more pre-emptively in certain objective scenarios. I'm usually using them to eke out some protection in a long range fight.

  • PreacherPreacher Registered User regular
    Yeah drop walls are great on objective stuff. Or hell during a fight to buy you an extra second or two

    Has anyone figured out how to do the replay feature with the in game UI but without the replay controls in the corner? I can either hide everything or nothing it seems and I wanted to capture some stuff for some montages of my good moments.

    Am I the only one having trouble finding reason why the Hydra and Carbine exist in multiplayer?

    I’ll having trouble finding scenarios where I wouldn’t rather have any other weapons

    The Heatwave is dangerously close to that territory for me too although it does significantly better in the confined corridors of the 4v4 maps so it gets to stay

    The hydra is decent against vehicles and also me, people seem to murder me with it all the time but I am not really a fan either.

    Hydra is good for long range suppression thanks to the high projectile speed and large magazine and lock on mode.

    Plasma carbine strips shields extremely fast and works best paired with a weapon for headshots.

    The heatwave in vertical mode kills in two shots if all six projectiles connect.

    Yes, sometimes you want another weapon, but sometimes you don’t have another weapon.

    Good lord I've gotten trash at multi shooters. I'm so old. I used to be decent! I played battlefield competitively! Oh well. Gameplay is real good. Maps are good. Still love oddball.

    RE- Progression. I really don't give a shit about the cosmetic side of it. The only complaint I'd have is that the challenges encourage poor play, but it's an online game so poor play is the norm anyway.

    All the complaints and news stories about the speed of the progression are obviously valid, but my main problem is that I just don't give a shit about the unlocks.

    You can't mix and match paint jobs on individual armor pieces, which sucks

    I got the EVA helmet which is awesome, but every other Reach helmet looks like some flavor of riot cop to me, so I don't care. The only thing I want is the scarf.

    I got the base samurai armor and it's fine I guess. I busted my ass to get the Tea paint for the Mark V last week, but Blue Rampage makes me look like a combination of Master Chief and Optimus Prime, so you pretty much can't top it.

    If this is all there is for the next half a year that's rough.

    Well with the new EXP changes on the daily challenges, you can get a few lvls each day easy now. It's almost like they overtuned it lol, I'll be done the battle pass pretty quick at this rate.

    Throw on a double exp and get some regular challenges with the daily and you could prob do 5lvls in the hour.

    EDIT: I'm in the same boat that the pulse carbine blows, the Hydra isn't too bad.

    The Hydra just works best in the situation you wouldn't expect. Long range encounters. Lock-on, shoot, hide, shoot, hide. Even if they try to hide behind something, if you have the lock, you can shoot off to a corner off the screen and the missile curves and you can get it around corners.

    I have trouble getting hitmarkers on the firing range with the plasma carbine, let alone in practice against actual people
    There's probably a trick to figuring out its aim behaviour but I just feel like it's so much more work than most every other weapon in existence

    It really kind of feels out of place in how bad it feels. Like, all the other guns feel like they have their niche and playstyle and that you can be competitive with them if you use them right and the carbine just feels bad to use. I think they should go back and rework it a bit.

    Carbine is pretty good on the "Streets" map. The tracking reduces the effectiveness of all the cover that map has.

    Yeah like I’m honestly better off trying to close any and all gaps and melee than I am using the carbine. The weird part is I see hit markers all over dudes and they don’t die sometimes (they never die, just sometimes I see hit markers)

    Also I find it funny how much people are worried about the progression because I care literally zero about it. Halo 1 didn’t have cosmetics and that’s the best halo!

    I plan on riding my default skin and everything else for all of halo infinite

    Once I get all the ODST armor pieces there are I don't care at all about any other cosmetics. Sadly it'll be a while since they are all in the battle pass level 60's.
