Armor Lock Compared to Other Abilities

I haven’t liked Armor Lock since the game shipped. It is just so much more useful compared to the other abilities.

Sprint has one function:

  • Sprint

Active Camo has two functions:

  • Cloaking
  • Motion sensor jamming

Armor Lock has four functions:

  • Invulnerability
  • Deflects everything
  • Negates stuck plasma grenades
  • Pops enemy shields upon exit

People constantly whine and complain about Armor Lock and get a ton of negative feedback from players that love it.


I’m not posting this to bash those that do like the ability, but if it’s not blatantly obvious to you that Armor Lock is unquestionably overpowered, then I’m at a loss of words. If Halo 4 is to feature armor abilities, Armor Lock need not make it’s return without being downgraded.

P.S. Equipment was way cooler.
