It's still somehow worse in Halo 4, for whatever reason. Tag it with Sprint in Reach, remove the red dots on the radar, and that's Halo 4's Camo.

I guess the positive for Reach is most users relied on Sprint. In Halo 4 I've noticed most seem to be using Camo, PV, or Jetpack.

Coincidentally the 3 AAs I think should either be removed, or brought back to the drawing board. They're all misguided anyway, as Hologram is clearly the superior AA. ;)


Perusing (lurking) the Waypoint forums, I came across some cool things:

This Forge map is bananas:

It's social-oriented, and it says it's a mod, but it's a cool, large city-like map. Probably one of the largest Forge creations I've seen in a long while. Interesting nonetheless.


This is a web-based screenshot extraction tool:

It allows you to extract direct-feed screenshots from Halo 4 from a saved filed that is transferred onto an external USB drive. There have been tools in the past that do something similar, but this is all web-based, so for those that aren't comfortable downloading an executable file, this should work nicely. Might be a little bit too much work for some people, but it's worth noting within the absence of File Shares or a way to capture screenshots without a capture card at this time. Now there is.


This is a pretty nice compendium thread of remake maps:

Seems to be ordered from best performance/gameplay to worst, by game, but I'm not 100% sure on that. There are quite a lot of maps here, but I'm not sure if they're from all around the web, or just Waypoint posted maps. There should be a Classic Gametype section added some time in the future. Still, it's worth keeping an eye on, I think.


(From Reddit) A compendium of Halo-related ViDocs:

There's a lot of great stuff, here. Not sure if HBO contains all these, I'm sure it does, just can't find it. I would rather they'd link to Bungie's account, but if you just want some quick vids, this might be worth taking a look at.


Bahaha, I don't know whether I should be embarrassed, or proud. I think that's the first time I've been on that list...

Oh, and nice OP, Over. She's a beaut.
