Just rendered a clip I made a few days ago that I believe is showing some form of grenade magnetism (only had enough for SD render, forgive me), followed by an absolutely ridiculous lunge that can only be attributed to lag.

The clip

Oh, and I believe the frag grenade I threw goes straight, lands as it should, then bounces to the right and follows the poor bastard sprinting past the doorway. Also, my thumb did all the talking when I was hit with that ridiculous melee lunge, my crosshair/aim goes crazy because I can't believe what the fuck just happened.
Did you check to see if it bounced off anything/was kicked by him?

You're missing out on Highlands. Such a nice map. Well would be if it weren't for the over abundance of power weapons on the map.
Well, I play it frequently in premium slayer, it is a good map, but like I said in 5v5 it never reaches the kill count for victory, not to mention people almost always quit before the timer runs down. It becomes laborious and boring very quickly.

Yes, there was nothing there.

It may have been that lag + sprinting past the door - may have had him kicking/hitting it and I was simply not aware of it... but otherwise it was a flat surface.

I feel funny... 5 and half hour Halo marathon does that. I feel like i should take a walk but it's 3AM here.
I'm not going to survive November. Halo CEA and new maps which i naturally have to play, Skyrim and possibly Star Wars the Old Republic...

Oh and add Falcons to Highlands. Some targets for all those powerweapons... and that map needs 8v8.

Honestly losing individual skill in order to make "team work" more fundamental is such a stupid concept.
Especially because Halo hasn't really had much of a problem in terms of needing teamwork.

Well with the side-to-side teleporters there, nobody is going to be encouraged to go to the middle anyway.
True. It seems like Highlands suffers the traditional "no reason to ever leave the edges of the map" BTB syndrome.

Yeah I get like 5 of those messages a month, not as bad as Halo 2 days lol
Those days were the best.

It was a struggle for me to stay in my competitive clan instead of leaving to join the "Big Tittie Committee"

...or they could just remove some of the power weapons like everyone's been asking for instead of adding a largely useless vehicle that wouldn't work because the hard ceiling is too low anyway?

Sorry about that Devo/Tawp, I was in blackscreen for like 5 minutes before it booted me back to the matchmaking screen. =\ Decided to call it for now, lol.

Yeah if I remember correctly, the hard ceiling is too low for the Falcon to really work well on that map. If it wasn't though, it would be pretty awesome on that map I think.

Oh right. Forgot about that Highlands has low ceiling. Well, Reach needs more Falcons anyway. Love flying it.
Still, 8v8 and a one or two more vehicles and some reason to go middle. Maybe remove Snipers or move them to sides.

I think David said, that it will be up sometimes soon. Still TBD
That's fucking ridiculous :(

If nothing else, does anyone have any idea where Stockpile shows up? I still need that one achievement, but everyone I've asked says they still don't have it because Stockpile only shows up with very low weighting in one playlist, but I don't know if that's actually true or which one (I'm assuming Objective).

I've seen it come up in big team but it's rarely voted for. Speaking of which, no Halo 4 multiplayer achievements please.

Halo 1 had 3-hit and H2 was variable.
Halo CE was variable too.

EDIT: I got on and played some Halo 3 for the first time in months and I found out Reach has made me terrible at sniping and BRing.

Completely agree, was super bummed out at the ones in Reach. Or if they do them, at least have them be general ones like the Reach one for buying something in the armory that requires you to be a specific rank. The ones where you have to do really stupid specific things in matchmaking suck.

The Noble ones were fine, because the whole team got them for completing the task.

Then for some reason the Defiant ones were only credited to the exact person that accomplished them.

Wasn't planning on playing Reach tonight because I bought a 3DS and Ocarina of Time 3D today and was pretty pumped about it. After using it long enough to drain over half the battery (hour and a half) I've decided to take this thing back tomorrow. Huge disappointment.

So who's up for some Reach?

You can get that achievement in a custom game as long as the gametype is an official bungie gametype.

New astro gear for PAX to add to my collection, hahaha
Love the Astros. I can't help but to buy any new home headset and mixamp they release. So good.

Dani said:
Half the folks here are going to be at PAX. This place will be a ghost town.
Less than 20% of regular halogaf is going, and most of them will be posting from there anyways as they try to catch all the stuff they're missing for being there. There will still be plenty of gifs and tears.

Whoa I had no idea there were tunnels behind overshield/camo spawns in the canyon variant. I thought they were only behind the base. Badass!
Yeah those tunnels look pretty sick.

Damnation and Creek/Canyon and going to play really well, not to mention they are beautiful. BE GONE FORGE!

Also, no sword in that video! :D :D :D
The sword is on Battle Canyon. Except they made some changes for the GamesCom.
