There is always one or more stupid dlc achievement(s) with each dlc released. Who actually uses a hardlight shield?
Exactly, nobody uses it! They didn't even bother to make an achievement for using the shield to encourage people to use it! I've been playing for 6 hours straight today, and I've only seen one person use it... they only used it once too.

It's odd. I never saw people with the hard light shield until Castle came up.
It's as if that achievemnt reminded people that the hard light shield was a thing.

Fuck the luck based achievements especially the Hardshield one.... They should've just made that into an achievement using it to defend yourself not assassinating a guy that is using it....

I agree.


and would it be so hard to include a counter for cumulative achievements?

The achievement could have just been "Earn a 'Close Call' medal while using the Hardlight Shield."

Same here. They have counters for commendations and challenges, why not achievements?

People pay money for the Season pass, but once the next DLC comes out, the previous DLC maps NEVER come up in games. There needs to be more than the recent dedicated DLC map list - otherwise whats the point in purchasing SP?

This.

I waited until Halo 4 came down in price, forgetting I made the same mistake with Reach in regards to the absence of map specific playlists once a new DLC is released. Regardless of achievements, it would be nice if I could play the content I purchased without the aid of a custom game.

It's shitty. If you ever want to get together and purposefully go for previous DLC map packs and NOT boost achievements I'd be cool with that . If you want to boost I can just help you get them but I'd try ATT etc.

Sure! It helps that you're also in the UK. I'll probably be on in a few minutes time.

Do you really think Halo was a 10/10? I think they made some clear errors, but otherwise did a solid job. I tend to see a 9-9.5 on this one...with the .5 going in for the innovation that is Spartan Ops.

My top bitches;

1) Soundtrack is VERY sub-par for HALO, I miss the theme...wish they had come up with something new or better, or just kept it. They had some moments, but nothing like the brilliance of core series from Martin O'Donnell. No Halo 4 going on my Ipod...

2) Aim Assist. I remember Bungie talking about dialing this in over the course of their games and they said "if done right, the gamer will never know it exists." There have been times where I litterally start tracking a baddie without a hand on the stick for 1/2 second or so. I've gotten headshots in MP from WAY too far away, far too often, without even trying...and I am NOT some Halo God (my bodys can be found all over the Halo Maps). I want to hit or miss on my skill...so HALO 4 lacked in that regards.

3) Campaign. Short, and story was just too weak. I wanted to experience Requiem, but most of the campaign is either in some bland tower or not on the planet. I got more enjoyment from the Terminal videos and Spartan Ops than the campaign...yes only 50% of the audience truly cares about campaign...but FFS, they really fell short of making the campaign what it could be. Each of the previous HALOs connected with a portion of the universe (Halo Ring, Covenant, Saving Earth/all life).

4) Poor Character Development. I wanted to kill the Infinity Captain, but they nerfed his removal, that could have been fun to see him get it...and I found Cortana to be annoying and more just eye candy than actually someone I cared about. I felt no connection to this game, and never really felt like I saved anything...just got a free ride home and kicked the cab drivers ass in the end. Or so we think....

Not really. For some reason I get twice as many kills when I direct connect. Probably because I'm the host more times than not this way. When I don't someone else is the host, which means instead of 3-4 shots to the head/body it takes 7-8.

Also I can't seem to find anyone to play. I ask here on the forums, xbox.com, and random people, and they usually don't want to party up unless it's for achievements. Where's the fun in joining random games all the time?

343 really needs to disable friendly fire on grifball. I know it's to prevent people from launching each other, but they still do it anyway. I'm tired of betraying someone on accident once because they got in my way after I pulled the trigger, and they go for me the rest of the match. Or when I have the ball, and they go ahead and kill me for it.

I think getter CSR 35 "only" in the castle dlc is just plain stupid for the avatar item. Here is the reasons why:


*It seems "CSR" is broken

*It takes too long to get to "35 CSR".

*People who don't have the dlc can't get the avatar item.

*Being a lone wolf sucks.

I agree with all of this. It definitely has to be broken, because after 40+ matches of Castle, I'm still CSR 1. Yet after three matches of Multi-team, I'm CSR 4.

I'm glad other people are having these same issues. It all sorts of absurd.

To anyone who doesn't play Griffball like it's supposed to be played (a.k.a going for Hammer or Sword kills), screw you!

Edit: also why does it take forever to rank up in Griffball? I think that CSR is broken.

It's sad, I'd love to use the BR, but since everyone else uses the DMR, I can only counter it with a DMR. It's the only way to stay alive. Besides, I need the DMR commendation anyway.

The Lag is the worst thing, closely followed by the customised loadouts.

How is it skillful when a player constantly throws 'panic sticks' right before they die and get you every time?

Then followed by the stupid weapon tuning, The BR ROF needs to be reduced further and the player speed can go back to 100% instead...

And some of the commendations are ridiculous...

Thank u for pointing those points out!! I feel the same way as u in that lag is horrible, the loadout choosing(which now everying is using BR or DMR), how uber powerful they made the BR now, and the speed of the game. My friends start thinking they are trying to convert this game to CoD since the weapons update came. My other complaint is not using to much of the DLC maps as well. They do one and once the next one came out, the other never exists. Good thing went ahead and got all the achievements just in case. I think they should make a playlist of all of the DLC maps rather them using one pack every 2 months or so.

Just reminding everyone here again that if you use the red visor ( purple might work ) with the EVA helmet, it looks like the tip of a penis.
