Jetpack is the 2nd worst ability next to Thrusters. Frags > stickies. You put too much importance on vehicles. Where skill really matters in Halo, there usually aren't vehicles on the map. Shielding > mobility.
Nah the only importance on vehicles I give, is with the stick grenades. The Plasma Pistol can just be as easily (or more efficiently) used as the noob combo.
Anyway, while I expected the hate on the Jetpack and stickies. They are STILL the best all-round thing to use. I think some people are putting a particular situation into their minds when typing, and trying to conjure up the perfect loadout for THAT situation. My topic is just about the best GENERAL loadout.

jet pack is just begging for someone to shoot you in the head
If used incorrectly, yes. But that's when you simply hurr durr in the middle of a firefight, and for some reason expect that simply gaining altitude in the middle of a firefight is going to completely disorientate your opponent.

Frags instead of Stickies and Resupply instead of Mobility for me. When I use Mobility, I abuse it to the point where it gets me killed more often than not. LOL
Also, did I hear someone say Jetpack is the second worst AA? Man, that's a shame. I used to be a hater because It's tough to use at first, sure. But once you get used to it, it's unreal. You're really limiting yourself by not learning it, IMO. --- "It's like people using the internet have never heard of the internet." - SadHillShowdown Gamefaqs member
I remember the community back around when Xenosaga came out was pretty good, haven't seen anything quite as awesome as those blooper threads here. The only reason I don't use this set up is because I just don't like the BR/DMR. Yeah they're awesome as hell but something about the aesthetics don't please me so I rarely bother. That and I'm too used to frags actually moving vehicles when they go off instead of a gentle nudge
