Halo 4 Difficulty

Hi I was wondering what people's thoughts were about what they expect in the difficulty of the legendary campaign and single player modes. I was wondering if people figured it will be harder than Halo Reach, Halo 3 and Halo CE. Where does everyone think Halo 4 will fall?

I'd say it depends on how adaptive the Prometheans really fight. Too soon to know of course

My brain hurts after trying to read this

As far as i'm concerned no Halo is too hard as i have completed them all solo on legendary, (although after Reach softened me up, CE:A almost broke me)

Glad to see somebody tried to take the time and read that.

There's no way of knowing how tough the campaign will be until we play it for ourselves, and even then, many of us will disagree upon its level of difficulty. Quite a lot of us think Halo 2 is the worst of the worst on legendary, while another lot think CE is brain blustering(is that really a word?)

I personally hope it'll be more of a challenge than ODST was, at least up to par with Halo 3/Reach, if not more difficult than that. There were a few challenging segments from those 2 (Coratana and LNoS respectively). And I believe 343i would want to make the campaign for Halo 4 somewhat easier to ease in a new wave of Halo players.

I figured as much. It seem as if you really have to focus on destroying Watchers ASAP before taking on the Knights in higher difficulties.

Do you use the old noob combo often? And does it work effectively on the Prometheans? On second thought, scratch that last question. I want to find out for myself.

I found CE surprisingly hard, Halo 3 and Reach weren't that bad but I couldn't get over how much CE kicked my ass.
I ended dropping to heroic, then to normal because as much as I love a challenge I can only have my ass handed to me a certain amount of times before I start to cut myself.

I hope they made it harder than Reach. Not that Reach was that much of a challenge on solo legendary but it was the "hardest" of the Halo series.

They need to make an achievement for beating Legendary Campaign will all skulls on. That is where the real fun is.

No way man, Halo 2 was the worst!

Hardest-
Halo 2
Halo CE
Halo Reach
Halo 3
Halo 3: ODST

Agreed 1000%. I don't know why nobody gives Halo 2 any thought when discussing difficult Campaigns. While Halo 2 is easily my favorite in the franchise, it was a tough battle to beat it on Legendary.

If anyone thinks Halo 3 was hard - at all! - then I feel bad for you. Halo 3 didn't even have us up against Elites, which made it terribly easy. The AI Brutes were incredibly unintelligent.

I plan to play it at the easiest difficulty so no a clue. I am really only a casual player, more interested in story then in the difficulty level. I have been playing Reach at normal in campaign mode and had to drop it to easy for mission 6 or 7 (Exodus?).

I know what you mean, but the lure of the achievement for Legendary is too much to not go after.

I dunno. For me, Reach was a pretty good challenge on Legendary, Solo. Probably because it was the first Halo I even attempted Legendary on (of course, now I'm going back to the earlier ones and re-playing them on Legendary, solo).

I think CE is easier than Reach, mostly because of having use of the Bandanna skull for unlimited ammo and Boom to increase their radius, so you can spam plasma grenades all day long. I didn't use this skull when going for A Monument To All Your Sins in Reach, though.

Hopefully, Halo 4 is a FAIR challenge and doesn't employ cheap AI tactics to up the difficulty ante.

Strafe behind those rocks and funky Forerunner structures as you wait for your shield to recharge. And always resort to using the noob combo. NEVER FORGET TO USE THE NOOB COMBOOOOO

Minus the jackals with the snipers having uncanny aim, I had zero issue with Halo 2.

I didn't have too much trouble with H2 either, but that was 8 years ago back when I was a youngin at the feisty age of 32. Now I'm an old bastard, so I'm lucky to remember where the hell I put my controller, much less be nimble with it

I can agree with that, and while they were probably the only annoyance, Halo 2 still stands as the hardest Campaign.

Breezed through the first couple of missions, thought, this is fairly easy.
