Finally got to play Lockout

And I notice that people do not play that map like they did in Halo 2. However, I only played one game on it, so my evidence doesn't have much weight, it's more anecdotal.

Anyway, I notice that people are hanging out above the lift and not at the towers. As a result I played the entire game from the Library.

What are your experiences on Lockout?

Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.

its just a very very very slow paced map to play slayer on if you go against people who know what they're doing

Yeah, I've only had 1 match on it, but I can see how it would go slow. I was all over the place at first, because I haven't been on Lockout in years. My old strategies came right back until their entire team camped Lift Room.

The sniper games are still funky to me. Not balanced yet.

The lift? Down the hall from shotgun spawn? I don't remember there being much up there...

Wait, was there another lift by the platform halfway between the towers? The one kinda off-center? Can't believe i barely remember Lockout that was one of my favorite maps...

Above the lift, is what I was referencing, which is above-ish the shotgun spawn.

That portion in the upper left of the picture. Where you land when you take the lift. I can't remember what spawned there in Halo 2, if anything. I think there were some frag grenades or something.

Oh that's right, for some reason I was only thinking of those two little mini-platforms to the sides of that lift where people would sometimes (rarely) hang out. I was thinking the same area was 2 different areas.

So, now that you know. The 1 game I played, the enemy team hung out there the entire time. So I pretty much stayed in the Library and went 21-2. I had a crappy team and we still lost.
