This thread is based off my first thread, which states that some of us really miss Firefight, and that Spartan Ops isn’t good enough. You can check it out from here.
This is a suggestion to add firefight to Halo 4, but only to a degree.
On some of the missions in Spartan Ops, there will be another “side mission”, called something like “Endless mode” or “Firefight” etc.
This will take place on the corresponding map, and act JUST like firefight, except that you will not have unlimited lives, not unlimited ammo etc.
It will mostly be like Halo 3: ODST’s Firefight: You’re supposed to survive as long as possible, not get as many kills as possible. (Of course, kills would count, but the main idea is to survive).
Your mission is simple: Spartan, hold this zone as long as you can, we need to keep the covenant at bay!
And that is what you will be doing. You will defend a spot, and fight to survive. You will not get a rocket launcher with unlimited ammo and start killing everything, you won’t get unlimited shields, it will only be you, your weapon, and your fellow soldiers.
Of course, some weapon drops once in a while would be really cool, and some ODST drops could also be nice.
Add Firefight to Spartan Ops, but NOT things like “Rocket fight”, “sniper fight” etc.
You will have, say, 10 lives. You will have 15 minutes/30 minutes to defend the zone. You either defend the zone for 15/30 minutes, or die trying. No unlimited ammo, no unlimited shields, just you, your weapon, and your fellow soldiers, against a covenant/Promethian armada.
AND PLEASE, BEFORE YOU VOTE: You might not want it, but others might. Think about it, and thank you for reading!
