Just when you think you've cleared the area....two more phantoms come in with a whole new barrage of enemies.

I did Legendary Solo and it kicked my ass! Good thing for the infinite spawns.

Still fun though!
Haha you aren't alone, solo legendary'd it myself, was totally bonkers but heaps of fun. Who would have thought from playing multiplayer that a single mantis pwns 6 hunters/6 phantoms/12 banshees & a wraith.

Loved the introduction cutscene again, its telling a fantastic sub story.

Did a search but nothing came up; does time spent in Spartan Ops count towards the 35 (70, 140) hours of multiplayer needed to get the MS point rewards?

So far I like what I see. I haven't started playing yet, but I see what maps we're playing on. I like that Quarry is the one they're returning us to. That's been my favorite level so far (and I really hope the Gauss 'Hog is back again.)

I like that they're using Multiplayer maps as well. A little tired of it from multiplayer, but I imagine playing it against Covenant will be a whole new experience (and it will be nice having a tactical knowledge of the battlefield in advance.) I'm a little disappointed they re-used it twice in the same episode, not to mention twice in a row.

As for the Cutscene, absoultely gorgeous as usual. Excited to see Dr. Halsey return, though it still pains me to see the way she's being treated. I guess every War has it's victims though. Just sad to see how they treat the woman that saved the Human Race from existence. I am glad, however, to see that the Covenant are still playing a role since they were extremely overlooked in the Campaign. It looks like they're playing off of the first terminal and taking advantage of the Traviss Trilogy, so I'm hoping to see Kilo-Five show up in one of the next few episodes. It's actually kind of intimidating that the Covenant know how to effectively use Forerunner technology to this level. They warped a scientist out of the ship and I imagine they could probably use it to warp into it just as easily (I get the feeling the Infinity will be a level in a later episode. Wonder if it'll be original or if they'll re-use portions of the Campaign on it.)

Wow ... this episode is a boatload of suck. I'm playing this on Legendary solo and died at least 30 times each level. The part where you get the mechs and all the Banshees are flying around, I couldn't get in one because every time I tried, I would get raped by Banshee bombs during the long ass cutscene to hop into a mech.
I am, however, enjoying where the story is going.

Favorite episode so far.

I don't get those ammo crates. I can refill ammo for my railgun, but not the sniper. Oh fucking well. The railgun is like an explosive sniper anyway. My favorite gun so far.

I love Episode 3 man. It feels so much bigger that 1&2. The part where you fight all the waves of incoming bashees, wraiths, and phantoms in the Mantis? Awesome! I had to do it on easy or normal because my wife was playing with me, but I'm looking forward to doing it on legendary. Somehow it felt grander in scope than the similar fight in the campaign toward the end. Not to mention episode 3's LONG cinematic. Freaking fantastic. I also like how they incorporated multiplayer maps into Spartan Ops. I didn't like it in Reach for multiplayer, but tying S.ops into familiar grounds somehow feels better than putting the MP on campaign areas (or designing them for use in both as it were). Can't wait for Ep 4&5!

Decent episode, the CGI cutscene was great and I'm really excited for the season finale next week. Though I can't help but feel annoyed at just how tedious the last chapter was for this episode. The cheap mission ending cop-outs and constant flow of enemies (thanks Knight for releasing 4 Watchers in a row) just shows that they are padding the length of the missions due to the maps being designed/cut from single-player and multiplayer.

Oh well, maybe next season will have entirely new maps with SpOps in mind since it, holding my breath here, isn't on disc.

Episode 4's Intro was sweet! Halsey is a clever bitch, and Lasky looks so real!

Finished it on Legendary solo, it's hard to stay alive! Last chapter took 30 minutes it was a long mission. Finished both Spartan Ops challenges and found the easter egg.

Wasn't as much fun as Episode 3 but the CGI scene was pretty darn good, the addition of an achievement in Ep 4 might have made it feel a bit more interesting...

Does anyone know if they've been releasing at the same time each week? I've only been off on Monday once when an episode came out, and it wasn't when the challenges reset. I think it was like 2 hours later not sure. I'm trying to plan on being on and ready when Ep5 launches.

I don't mind the map re-use. We can't realistically expect them to create all new maps all the time for these things. That would be far too much development expense. If they did that they'd have to charge for them as DLC like MW3's "let's release one specops mission with each multiplayer map pack". Screw that.

I'm having fun mowing down Covenant and Forerunner forces, and I like how it ties into the main campaign. I do agree with the others in using the same maps over kinda sucking but it's extra content!

Hope they use some of the other places from campaign and multiplayer. Otherwise I'll be bored for the other 6 Episodes. Episode 4 was worst example in where they used the exact same places for every chapter without even expanding a part of the place.

I'm expecting 4 things from Spartan Ops.

1. Jul ' Mdama. I really hoped he'd have at least some role in the campaign but he never showed. I like how he's the big man in Spartan Ops though, arguably a free campaign DLC.

2. Didact. Likely not until the very very end of all the last Episode will he make an appearance, though I would not be surprised if he influences things soon.

3. Cortana. If you read my Composer theory, it's highly likely she isnt just "gone." I believe that the artifacts we've been seeing and Halsey's contact in Ep 4 are all Cortana-related, if not her to begin with. In order for there to be more Halo games after this one they'll need Cortana to stay important to the story, even if not present.

4. Flood. Come on......we know they're out there, we know it's probably only a matter of time...... It'd also be one hell of a cliffhanger for the final chapter. I personally hope they never show but it's always a possibility.

Pretty sure the Didact will appear in some form, seeing has hes already been mentioned.

Sadly I doubt Cortana will, even though she mentioned during the campaign they could team MC up with another Cortana model it wouldn't be her. I genuinely feel the end of 4's campaign was closure for her character.

I'd like them to introduce Flood (just for something different to clear for a change). But if they've not created new areas for spartan ops you can't imagine them creating new AI and models for enemies. But it would be interesting to see how much of a nightmare trying to clear out flood infected knights. Hell I'd love for them to infect your spartan just so we could kill all the AFK'ers who don't help clearing.

I didn't really kind of follow the story for Spartan Ops, I was in a party attempting to get them done quickly and get some achievements. Could anyone give me a quick re-cap.

Also, is this the end for Season 1 or not? If so when can we expect Season 2 (if anyone has any info about it that is)

I will reply with a quick recap after my matches tonight, but there are still FIVE Episodes (5 Weeks) left in Season 1. There hasn't been and proper speculation or news on Season 2 yet.

Is anyone else starting to get tired of Spartan Ops? It's gotten to the point where my friends and i are just trying to get through them as quickly as possible to unlock the achievements.

The intro videos are really well done, and the overall story isn't too bad either, but the gameplay is just too repetitive. I don't mind the Covenant maps because at least they have different enemies and vehicles but the Promethean maps are the same thing over and over. By the 3rd episode we were tired of fighting the same group of Prometheans only to have the exact same enemies respawn again and again.

Why didn't 343 give the Prometheans vehicles or at least include more than 3 enemies? Really disappointed with 343's contribution to the Halo universe At least MP is fun.
