Or, and this is just a thought, they're good with the Sniper Rifle.

And from my experience the people that play SWAT are actually really good at shooters because they don't have a radar to warn them of the enemy and have to be far more alert.

Probably because SWAT is pretty fun, but can't play it too much, still need variety.

They're updating the servers within a week to change things around (like having Swat in it's own category). Hopefully I've saved you some tissues.

P.S. (I hate it too )

Because you don't have to hit someone 10 times to kill them, they are the best gametypes in Halo.

SWAT and Snipers definitely need to be in their own category. I like SWAT but there's way too much camping in both modes and people mistakenly think it's some kind of testament to skill to do well in either. You aren't good with the sniper rifle just because you're good in Snipers. It's two completely different things to be good in a camp-friendly mode where everyone has a sniper and nobody is moving around and to be good with the sniper in an actual game. SWAT is similar. Lots of people get the first shot to the head in an actual match but lose the fight because their DMR is terrible.

That said, I do like SWAT, but Snipers is a stupid mode. I can't wait to see if/when Bungie puts them in different playlists.

I agree with everything there. What makes snipers even worse is the fact that bullets shoot out from your eyes, which allows camping bastards to crouch low and still shoot you from the other side of the map. In a normal game, however, these are generally the people who can only snipe stationary targets, or take two shots to kill a moving target.

I'll admit to picking SWAT or Snipers a lot myself. Why other people do it, probably because they were HxC playlists in Halo 3 so of course a majority of players will pick them (especially because as of now TS is the only hopper that offers either)

Bungie made this call just to generalize the playlists for the first few weeks and to take it easy of most of the newcomers. These are scheduled to change so don't get your panties in a bunch.

Why you don't like it? Because of THIS?

Or you want to play Slayer like THIS, THIS or THIS?

You got more kills with the Tank than anything else...

500+ Kills with DMR but 700+ Deaths from it...

100+ Kills with snipe and 200+ Deaths from it...

Tsk Tsk Tsk Tsk... I see why you hate it, don't worry you're not the only one.

Agreed. Swat is my favorite but I like a little bit of everything (except BTB).

Actually in Reach, I vote according to the maps moreso than the gametype. I'd rather play a shitty gametype on a decent map than vise-versa.

Maybe he meant 1v1 but you get an AR and he gets a scorpion?

I like 'em both to be honest but the same goes for Rumble Pit, I can't escape playing 15-20 Infection game types in a row before getting to a Slayer. I think Bungie needs to take the Gears 2 route and split EVERY game type up into its own category THEN have a Grab Bag situation where there's a nice EVEN mixture of game types. Anyone agree?

Snipers and SWAT to make this game more reliant on your reflexes and accuracy!! Sure running around and randomly running into other people to see who has the better weapon is fun, but when everybody is equal all you have is skill.

SWAT yes.

Snipers, sometimes though mostly turns into a hardcore camp fest.

The only time i've played Snipers is on Paradiso and it ends up turning into who can camp the cliffs first.

I don't mind Infection, I just don't like that many in a row. I wanna play some Oddball or DMRs or Swords or Elite Slayer too occasionally.

There is a very minimal requirement of skill in SWAT and Snipers, much less than you need in a real game. It's the same as playing Juggernaut or Oddball in Rumble Pit essentially. The modes and maps are very camp-friendly. There's nothing skill-based about getting the first headshot on someone, or sitting in a corner until someone walks by your reticule and you kill them. There is skill if in a real game you get the drop on me and I take you out anyway though. Playing SWAT on Zealot or Snipers on Hemorrhage is a perfect example of everything wrong with the game modes. It's fine if you like it, but don't trick yourself into believing that you're skillful for doing well in modes with no shields or everyone starting with a sniper rifle.

I don't see what's hardcore in camping and waiting for someone to get in your reticle. Team snipers is gay.
As for SWAT, wether it's full of cheaters, or you gotta explain how a bunch of guys jumping like cocaïne filled fleas link headshots after headshots.

You don't have to hit someone ten times in regular slayer to kill them. There are a lot of ways to kill someone with just a few -even a single- shoots. And guess what ? There are even snipers and DMRs in regular slayer...

Snipers on Blood Gulch or "Hemorrhage" isn't too bad.....kinda the same thing though, its whoever can get into the trees or cliffs first.
