A Question about spartan abilities in halo 5

can 343 release an update to allow us to turn off sprint and spartan abilities in multiplayer

Can they? Probably.

Will they? Probably not.

I’m not sure what you mean by that, but you can in customs. Also, there has been talks about making a “Legacy” playlist where no Spartan abilities will be used.

Isn’t that basically the same as the previous classic playlist.

There was a Classic playlist on Halo 5 before?

There was anniversary throwback which still had Spartan abilities but on classic maps. It was hinted that a “classic” playlist with no Spartan abilities maybe offered in the future.

You already CAN turn everything off… there just aren’t any supported/configured modes for MM like this.

No In halo 4 wasn’t there a classic playlist which is just what people are talking about with this legacy idea.

I personally didn’t play Halo 4 that much. I just mainly played for the campaign. I didn’t like it because it was more like CoD.

But halo 5 though is way more like cod. I don’t know how 4 is though.

Halo 4 implemented a Killstreak and a customized loadout like CoD.

Now, how exactly is Halo 5 like CoD?

There’s a reason Warzone is on its own playlist.

I personally don’t play much Warzone, so I really don’t care about it. As long as that kind of stuff doesn’t make it to Ranked and Social, I’m okay with it.

A twitch shooter?

The time to kill is what I meant by it being twitchy, before in other halos when Im about to die I would see it coming. I’m of the opposite side I don’t really care for arena much. Or you could refer to it as the pacing of the game is too high to what halo was before.

Warzone is social though so I don’t know what your on about.

True. The pacing is definitely much faster, but I don’t see how that makes Halo more like CoD.

Last time I checked, which was about a second ago, social and Warzone had their own sections.

Before you even mention sprinting, that I know of in Halo 5 you have to stop sprinting in order to regain your shields, oh and then there’s the shield part.

They’re*
I get what you mean not according to Halo 5.

That would be cool

@OP Why would you do this? For example we are allowed to tweak things like auto stabilization in Matchmaking because it makes sense for those who rather quickly scope and fall back into cover and not be forced to hang in the air out in the open, and there are those who like auto stabilization so its a personal choice setting in Matchmaking and doesn’t really affect overall balancing because its a personal touch that fits a persons play style. However sprinting is a necessary feature and why in gods name would you want to turn you own sprinting off in a matchmade game where every other person can sprint. Unless you like being slow and getting easily shot moving between cover then why would you want to turn off sprinting. If you’re talking about for everyone then you need a classic playlist not a personal option feature. In custom games you can turn this off for everyone, but in matchmaking it makes no sense to turn your own abilities off in a game where everyones is on, unless you like losing easily.
