Friendly fire ?

for those who have had the chance to play the beta, I was wondering if friendly fire was back?

im pretty sure there is no friendly fire.

which is something i fell halo benefits without.

That’s to bad. I enjoyed having to change strategies on the fly when your trying not to shoot your teammates. It made you second guess throwing all those grenades or shooting those rockets.

^this and this.

I went into H2A fresh off Halo 4 and kinda forgot how not to blast my teammates who were next to an enemy.

Friendly fire = more strategy & tough decisions

I hope they turn it back on.

Friendly fire is fine except when your teammates are crying -Yoinks!- and kill you because you took the weapon they wanted. It does add an element of strategy you can’t get any other way.

I hope its optional.

Pretty rare in ranked playlists anyway unless you’re a low rank.

I really hope they bring friendly fire back. I’ve been able to mindlessly spam grenades into my teammates’ firefights. Requires no skill.

How would it be optional? That’s really weird.

Keep it on in all standard playlists, but have an option to turn it off in customs.

I think he means that certain gamemodes shouldn’t have it while others should.

Unless it’s a special gametypes, or something like infection, then it can have no friendly fire. Otherwise, it should always be on period.

That’s never been the case for me. Regardless of where I am my teammates feel the need to spam rockets, and grenades in my general area.

I agree to a small extent. I have had games in halo2 and 3 where I get killed by a spammer or someone upset that I got to rockets first but I believe for me that was the minority. Besides I want friendly fire on for ME. Not because I’m worried about everyone else. It brings strategy to my game which is what I miss in halo.

edit: I’d like to add that I would appreciate friendly fire being on only in the ranked playlist. That way we all get what we want. Truly if 343 are trying to bring halo back to the competitive scene they should really consider friendly fire.

It better be back. I don’t remember spartans developing magical anti-friendly shield repellents.

They removed it. Just more of the COD dumbing down trend.

Put it back ffs.

Agreed.

Please bring it back 343!

That’s weird. I remember them saying that their will be friendly fire.

Not sure why they’d take it out. Especially from ranked.
