Can someone explain this gametype to me? I've never bothered with it in the past. I never bothered with Oddball before Halo 4, but since the addition of the 'throw' mechanic, it's quickly becoming one of my favorites. So with Grifball, I understand that there's a ball and you're trying to score it in a designated area, but why does the person with the ball change colors? Why does the Hammer seem to act different (less accurate) than in a slayer game? Help me lessen the learning curve. --- Insert signature here.
They change to the orange color to match Grif from the Red vs. Blue series, hence the name Grifball. It's basically American football, but with hammers and swords. They keep the hammer damage the same, but increase your damage resistance so the game has more of a challenge :) --- GT: Incredigasmic Finished Pokemon Black National Dex @ 85 Hours and 15 minutes on 04/08/11!
This Wiki along with the rest of your responses have made this make a whole lot more sense. Thanks for the info. Lets see If I can use this to my advantage and stop sucking @ Grifball. --- Insert signature here.
Grif dies, thats the objective. You kill him with a hammer or a sword. Even when someone scores everyone becomes grif and they die, so we all win. --- Spiral's very own bird of prey. Assist all around, I've plenty for everyone.
