View Full Version : How many times have you run up to somebody, mashing B to punch?

Who else keeps getting confused with the new button layout?
I kept running up to numerous people to bash them with :bbut: but in fact it was :rbbut:, only for them to shoot me once or twice and get a head shot on me.

I'm a little suspicious about the amount of people who don't die with an entire magazine of my fancy new needle rifle to the face, but then manage to get me with one or two shots, getting a head shot.

I lol'd at this thread. I have done this so many times. It makes me especially mad when I try to use it for an assassination. :mad:

The first 2 or 3 matches I played where hell for me. I guess I should have payed more attention to the controls and watched more of the videos showcasing how to play the DAMN GAME!

Otherwise after I started remembering this wasn't Halo 3 I started doing pretty well. I killed the entire team with a flag, that's so far been my highlight.

in the first game I did it^^
then at the 2nd game it worked kinda good with the hit button change
but I think u cant kill somebody anymore with one hit after u shot down ur half or full magazine on him

I picked up the flag and took it to the enemy's base, expecting points to pop up or something because I didn't have a clue what to do.
When three of the enemy came round the corner and I mashed :rbbut: trying to drop the flag but ended up killing all three of them so I guess it's not all that bad!
I'll get used to the controls sooner or later. When I traded MW2 for BFBC2 I got used to the controls quite quickly, but I occasionally crouch when trying to knife!

I lol'd at this thread.

Ditto, same here. I did it only once. Honestly loving the :rbbut: melee!! I was one of those "just a split second behind" on the :bbut: button guys...finding the bumper so much smoother and faster!

If you preferred the Halo 3 controls then it would be best to use the Recon control layout, there is also a huge range of other layouts.

Halo Reach controls FTL! :(

Never looked at the new controls before I started and I've done it a few times.

First I did it obviously nothing happened and I was confused and was like "So the B button does nothing now?"

So I died, respawned and found a corner to figure what button beat down and then found out B changed nade.

Just played a few more games now and I still do it sometimes in the heat of a close fight.. annoys me, but i'll get used to it!

To be honest, I was slightly dissapointed that you couldn't configure each button to how you want it. This game is supposed to be amazing, and all new but I don't think I've played a game that allows you to assign each button.

Yeah, I do this a LOT.

I also hit the RB to reload sometimes and melee instead.

Now that you mention it, I think every time that I go to reload I melee by mistake!
I honestly don't know why they decided to change the button layout. There is only one new button needed to be used, but that could have easily been solved by a click of the :ls:

honestly I havent played a halo game in a while....so I didnt have to unlearn an old way


I did however spend countless matches trying to figure out how to assasinate

I did in the beginning, got used to the default controls very quickly. Then I got annoyed that whenever I assassinated someone, it went through the animation even though it felt like I lightly tapped the button. My friend suggested Recon, which is basically 'b' to melee, right bumper to reload. So pretty much the Halo 3 way. Tried it, kept getting confused because I got really used to the default way. Haha.

I do that with Call of Duty and Battlefield Bad Company.
If I play CoD after playing BF I always press the wrong buttons, but as soon as I change the button layout I start hitting the 'correct' buttons!

I only played 1 match so far so I only done it 3 or 4 times, so I'll change the controller layout tomorrow night so I don't do it again. Someone said the Green Thumb was a good choice, any others?

Green Thumb is the way to go, especially with the new layout having zoom as :rbbut:.

I was hitting :bbut: my few couple of matches, then after I switched the controls so :bbut: was the melee button, I started hitting :rbbut: instead. Gah!

Is green thumb a different controller layout? :abut: to melee?

Hell no! RB is the best button for melee because you can actually turn AND melee! It's funny when people melee at me because they lunge in a straight path, then I turn around and assassinate them. It's what separates the nubs from the good players.

i prefer using :rbbut: it is quicker and alot easier than the :bbut:

Cable Player

What I don't understand is I keep getting double-punched. But I am mashing :rbbut: Why do they punch so much faster than me?

Never. But then I've used Boxer since the first Halo.

I never had that problem either. I've always used Green Thumb throughout the Halo series, so no trouble with melee for me. However, it did take me a while to retrain myself to use X to reload instead of the RB.

Do people not realize you can switch it to "Recon" settings, its the same button layout as Halo 3's.

Whenever I go up to someone and press B, I melee and kill them (Or die, depending on who wins the duel). The Recon control-type is by far my favorite. The default one is a bit too strange for me. I like reload on the left bumper and melee with B. Everything else is pretty good.

I dont really have this problem on Reach but when I went back to Halo 3 I was using the :rbbut: button and then the opposite team killed me (I dont use bumper jumper).

Probably the melee glitch (:rbbut: :xbut: :rbbut:).

I actually forgot about melee completely for the first couple games, then I had no trouble with :rbbut: (I use default controls).
Sometimes I hold down :ls: expecting to start running, since I usually choose sprint as my ability. Other times I press :ltbut: expecting to zoom. Too much Borderlands. >.<

I use to do this a lot, but now I can get an easy beat down using the RB button.

Yea definitely, also the reload button felt off.....but keep in mind i just played and finished Bioshock2 and Left4Dead2 which messes you up.

I did this a buttload of times
Everytime i could melee someone i pressed B but changed the controller setting to recon and i was fine ;)

When i first saw this thread,i thought "Oh he's probably going to talk about the noobs that run around double meleeing people"Because in my honest opinion you could do good just by doing this.It's not so fair that i shoot my whole ar clip into you and make you at a slither of HP left in the bar and instinctively i Melee you and you melee me,Now it's up to who mashes B faster then the outher T_T

Use the magnum instead. Problem solved. (Although amusing melee battles tend to occur anyway)

Once I (finally) realized how awesome it is, I haven't gone back.

I find the magnum more effective than the dmr, especially in invasion

Lewi
05-13-2010, 02:05 PM
yea i must say the pistol is awesome
it will come in super handy in the campaign
seems balanced too with small clips and not a huge capacity (40?)

i too use it more than the dmr
does anyone eelse think the DMR sounds arent too great? seems a bit pinish

Never did it, it took so long for me to get a match to start the first day (aka meltdown mania day), that i killed time looking at all the options before I could play and noticed the new layout and said "Well that coulda been bad!"

only problem i have now is using armor abilities instead of switching grenades :3
