Remember when all games had at least one, and it was the worst part of the game? I'd forgotten that Truth & Reconciliation had one.

Why does Keyes have to always run right into every grenade he sees?

The worst part is he always wants to be out front. I had a section where he just continuously ran into a sword elite.

One time he shot me and I turned around and laid a pistol bullet right into his head thinking he was an enemy. Damn Keyes.

Lol my marines for some reason liked to kill Keyes in friendly fire on Legendary, was a bit annoying but I found it rather entertaining ;P

Lies! There is no pistol on the Truth and Reconciliation. lol

He does tend to get killed a lot though. I loved trying to do that scene with the Boom skull on XD Damn near impossible. I ended up popping grenades in all of the doorways after the hangar bay. The range was just enough to where it blew him to the back of the bay, but he didn't die. By time he got back, everything was dead (marines included. lol.)

I was driven nuts with that part until I just ran back into the tunnels, they all follow you and from that point it was easy, even on Legendary.

'course, I was doing it with Boom and the one that makes grunts explode, on Legendary. In the end, what worked was kiting Keyes back to his cell, then running and killing everything before he can catch up.

Man, am I happy that the escort quest is no longer a gaming staple. This wasn't even one of the really bad ones.

On an unrelated note: anyone else notice how much easier Halo:CE is, now that we all have 10 years' worth of muscle memory for FPSes on console? I'm breezing through this, but back when it was fresh I couldn't do Truth & Reconciliation on Legendary unless I had a decent coop partner.

Ok... it was a full clip of an AR.
