The DMR will ruin this game if left as is, actually it is doing so as we speak

I never played Halo PC, but in the dozens of LAN parties I've played, power weapon whoring was never a viable strategy. The pistol saw to that.

Have to second this. When I used to play Halo:CE, 90% of my kills were coming from cross-map pistol sniping.


Maps like Blood Gulch, sure.

Maps like Sidewinder and Boarding Action, which you would think would be great snipe maps were really good for power whoring, shotgunning and AR using.

The maps in CE really made you use different strategies, something every other Halo has lacked.


Power weapons definitely played a part, but the gameplay wasn't focused around them. Of course people will pick them up and use them, but you wouldn't see people just sitting waiting for it to spawn.


Dunno, most games I played competitively always resulted in camping the sniper or rockets, then camping the Flamethrower online.

Heh, Vehicles couldn't be destroyed and I would frequently come across people on Blood Gulch, 3 deep in a rocket hog with a flamethrower. Flaming Warthog o.o;

Well that's a flaw of the PC version. Halo 1 didn't have rocket hogs or flamethrowers

No, even in LAN tournaments, featuring some of the best players in California at the time, people camped snipers and rockets.

Then I mentioned camping the flamethrower ONLINE, not LAN tournaments.

And LOL about it being a flaw in the PC version, they were all things that were suppose to be added to the console release but were scrapped last minute because they couldn't perfect it. The PC version of Halo: CE was the COMPLETE version of Halo 1, the console version was nerfed.

been saying this since two days after launch TC. To those that said it was that way In CE, 2, 3, Reach. You seem to have selective amnesia going on. The precision weapons were pick-ups then, and you couldn't choose your starting weapon.

True, but then again, there was also the terror of the Fuel Rod Cannon on the PC version as well.
