Nothing will top the Brute Chopper.

NOTHING.
I'm inclined to believe you, but you never know.

I'm hoping there will be a Forerunner aerial vehicle... THAT CAN ALSO TRANSFORM INTO A GROUND VEHICLE!

Make it happen, 343.

EDIT: Didn't notice that Homeboyd already had that idea :lol. Great minds think alike. :)

What I would like to see is the Mongoose get beefed up a bit. It should be at least as fast as a boosting ghost. I'm happy for it to go slower than a ghost with a second rider on it, but it makes no sense for the unprotected, unarmed and more unwieldy Mongoose to be so much slower than the ghost.

The audio sounds weak and I don't like that text that pops up in the middle of the screen when you make a kill or other feats. Otherwise I'm super hyped

It seems like they're copying CoD in a lot of ways. The hud, the point system, the loadout system, apparently the exp you earn can buy things that aren't just cosmetic anymore.

Yeah the hud needs work. To distracting. To much text and the bottom half goes way to far into the game view. They should get that entire graphic out and just keep the very bottom line intact. Lower the outer glow on those graphics too. It would look a lot sharper. I get what they are trying to do but it looks like shit.

People liked the chopper? It was my least favourite addition to the vehicle sandbox in Halo 3; just a less maneuverable (and thus less fun) ghost.

I liked it alot, nothing more badass then ripping a warthog in a head on collision.

Revenant for me would be my least favourite, maybe even an unnecessary addition to the franchise.

Yeah I wasn't a fan of the revenant (or the prowler really) - not sure why bungie didn't think the spectre from halo 2 was good enough to keep in the sandbox - it was my favourite covenant warthog equivalent.

I've been out of the loop for a while on Halo news. What's the deal with the jetpack? Is it in the game? Are people hating on it?

edit: I'd also like to know "the deal" with active camo plz
Jetpack is in, and based on earlier info, i think the AC as a AA is in aswell.

Jetpack is in I think? As noted below, I'm not sure if thruster pack and jetpack are one in the same. The thruster pack however has horizontal movement as opposed to vertical.

Fuck camo. Fuck both actually, but fuck camo.

So what's the drama? I loved the jetpack in Reach and camo has always been a part of Halo...


Jetpack is in, now called thruster pack and has horizontal movement as opposed to vertical.

Wait are you saying you can't actually fly with the 'jetpack?' It has devolved into a glorified Evade?

Camo as a pick-up, not as a AA, has always been in Halo.

Halo purists, like myself, hate all AAs. I maintain this opinion still.

The only one I was "ok" with as the sprint, which helped to speed up and modernize the series.

Those edited screens look pretty cool. Increases readability by a shit-ton. I still prefer the originals though.

How is armor ability not modernizing the series by your logic then? Also i believe there aren't pickups at all anymore.

I should've worded my post better. IMO, the addition of sprint was literally all they needed to speed up and modernize the series.

They've moved so far away from the "holy trinity" of Halo (guns, grenades, melee) with the addition of AAs it no longer feels like Halo.

This is the opinion of someone who played MLG gametypes exclusively from Halo 2 and on (once they were made available as a playlist) I have a TON of misgivings with what they've done with H3 and on, but this isn't the thread for it.
