Thruster Pack is beyond a joke

wait, activating thrusters mid assassination lets you escape them? is that what you are saying? And can anyone tell me if the classic Halo reach strategy of "Back roll away from an oncoming ghost while holding B to board" still works with thrusters?

Activate thruster's when assassination animation starts, and you can escape.

That's how it's been so far.

I hope it isn't a glitch, to be realistic, if you were trying to assassinate someone from behind and then they activate their booster pack, IE jetflames, you are going to let go due to the risk of getting burned. Granted, jetpack should be able to do the same.


Also, anyone have an answer for the vehicle boarding trick?

i love juking people with it, and so satisfying when someone misses a sword lunge due to the dash, which btw you can aim where you want to be looking after the dash by looking to that direction during the animation.

btw the reason flood boost farther then Spartans is since thruster packs distance traveled increases with move speed. go to forge and get max move speed and try thruster pack. you will fly from red team base to blue team base on momentum alone form the one thrust.

Jump out from cover, pull out the mid-air snapshot, thrust back to the left and get back to cover.

Shoulda called that a FreekShot ;)

I was disappointed as well but I could see it being useful in extremely close-range situations.

ie: The aforementioned tank dodging, and also melee encounters.
