Solo Legendary = impossible

It's only hard because:

They decreased the damage plasma deals to flesh by about 50%

They decreased the damage bullets deal to shields by about 50%

They increased the energy consumption rate on all covenant weapons.

Enemies no longer charge their plasma pistols... they instantly fire overcharges.

Bad design with those repair drones bringing back the promethian knights. You gotta spend all your ammo carving them up from a distance and scavenge more before continuing on.

Enemies no longer have a cap on their grenade limits. I say a single elite through 12 plasma grenades when he got stuck on level geometry.

Additionally, the also artificially increased the difficulty by throwing tons of enemies with instant kill weapons your way.

The second mission has an area with 5 fuel rod grunts all in close proximity.

Call of Duty games on Veteran are only "harder" because they're so poorly made and coded.


Infinite spawns and x-ray vision are the chief reasons for the artificial difficulty in Call of Duty.

This is definitely one of the harder Halo campaigns. The Knights are bullet sponges and the ones with Scattershots are very aggressive, and early on ammo is scarce. Also, Binary Rifle.

I'd say this will easily be the most difficult LASO game.

I'm stuck on the final mission. I have four scattershot rounds, an empty light rifle, one pulse grenade, and a hardlight shield on my checkpoint.

There's 5+ knights
-_-


XD I lol'd so hard at this.

Having just beat the campaign on Heroic today, I understand exactly what you mean about this section. And it must be doubly hard seeing as you have it on Legendary.

Game is harder but doable.

I'm a Christian. I play Diablo 3 and one of my favorite video game characters is the Lich King from Warcraft. Deal with it.

I always thought halo 2 was the hardest. Halo 4 and reach were pretty easy, nothing really gave that much difficulty in 4 either but then again this is what like the 4th halo game in 5 years (5 if we played anniversary), So halo legendary is becoming the norm instead of exception in difficulty to us fans, we just getting used to it.
