    Fuck. I was about to finish two annoying challenges right before my boost ran out but the sever crashed and now the game says there is no internet. Booo.

    Quick resume doesnt work most of the time just hard close and reopen the game

    Random thought: buff the plasma carbine projectile so it holds the same tracking capability as the needler

    Pro tip: don’t waste a challenge swap on a gungoose challenge.

    It will spawn on your next BTB match and you’ll go on a killing spree with that bundle of joy.

    Also for anyone wondering how the rockstar promo goes. You create an account on their site (naturally as everything wants you shit now) and each code you enter gets you unlocks. What's nice is you can click a button on their site to auto put it on to the xbox

    I'm honestly kinda confused as to what the point of the motion tracker is even supposed to be with the range this short. Somebody can sprint up behind you and easily melee you to death before the blip hits the radar, leaving you wondering how the fuck somebody teleported into melee range with no warning. The range seems to be roughly six feet, so somebody half the circle away is in melee range already.

    I really feel like this ultra-short-range radar is more distraction than tool. You're better off just keeping your eyes on the screen than basically ever checking the motion tracker, as anything close enough to be on the motion tracker is practically right next to you already.

    I do a lot of crawlin, and the motion tracker is my most dependable ally.

    It’s got so many uses and you can fake people out with it knowing they are watching it also.

    I love fake the escape around a corner, crawl back to the corner and they get the melee right as they round it, as they think you kept running.

    I think they nerfed the motion tracker to make the sensor ability more useful. Which is.. awful design.

    So as the biggest anti carbine person in the world…

    I think it might actually be pretty great as the new plasma pistol. Some dude was wrecking me by hitting a burst then swapping so I started doing the same and yeah it’s pretty good

    Finally got that amazon code from their rockstar promotion, if you're looking for swaps that might be a good source, $15-ish 12 pack gets you a code for 36 swaps, + 24 double xp boosts, and either 18 more swaps and the skins or 24 more swaps from the cans if my math is right

    The plasma pistol is still here, though, and is still great at what it does.

    I realized I don't like the samurai armor because it makes you look like a stupid evil security goon for a cyberpunk zaibatsu who only exists to be sliced in half by an anime protagonist.

    Ah, good, I couldn't tell if it was broken or if it's just really, really shitty.

    I actually don't even know what it does when it detects somebody because it's so short-lived and short-range that I've yet to have it launched at a spot where somebody actually walked through the range.

    Yes but the plasma pistol is a bit more all or nothing. It’s def better at longer ranges than the carbine (oddly enough..) but if my charge shot whiffs I’m screwed.

    Carbine I can fire a burst and another if I need and still have time to swap to finish. I wonder how many carbine bolts have to hit to fully pop a shield? I don’t think all 3.

    Admittedly I haven’t used the plasma pistol much. It seemed like it was hard to use well and would frustrate me when it missed.

    I feel like the fight would already be over after 2x plasma carbine bursts and a weapon switch.

    If you are fighting at point blank, yes, but the carbine works well at medium range, and is much better at surprising people, what with the not having to charge it.

    The pistol isn't bad for anti-shield work either.

    It would be nice if either weapon could kill, and my condolences to anyone without a swap stuck on a challenge for either.

    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.

    Same. I don't know how they're going to top ODST armour in the next season.

    First match of the day and I got a stronghold. Fucking stressed as hell since I had both complete a stronghold AND win a stronghold challenges. I'd used a boost before starting too.

    Won the thing and thus completed four challenges at once which gave me two full battlepass levels with the double xp.

    I still think the double XPs should be just game time not menu and loading. Or a set number of matches.

    I mean I guess thankfully its just an emblem, but still 17 wins is a big ask, though do bot matches count?

    I have the battle pass and bought a pack of rockstar so I could make my warthog shiny, but I had plenty of skips and was able to get pretty easy weeklies so I'm already 3-4 wins into the 17 games and I have like 5 days left so that doesn't seem terribly arduous to me. But not everyone gets the same amount of playtime and if you go on a bad luck streak and don't win, that sucks. I do like that they have a challenge that encourages folks to actually win games but that will be frustrating when paired with folks who aren't there yet.

    Definitely need to make winning games give bonus XP, but not make it a giant challenge I think.

    Also there's apparently a big desync issue that reddit is taking about which makes things feel worse in some areas.
