game breaking feature in halo 5

While I was pondering Halo 5 at dinner tonight I thought what if one spartan went down for a ground pound and one thrusted while sprinting and they collided at the peak of each action…I think the Xbox one would explode and all Microsoft servers would go offline.

Ground pound would win, because it deals lethal damage in the centre ring wheras the spartan charge doesnt, but hmmmm

I wonder if you can ground pound someone in mid air. Do you just bump them out of the way? Does it only work if it’s perfectly centered, then you just stop and fall?

ground pound would win.

I learned this the hard way

I believe you push them aside and continue, whether or not it does damage, I dunno.

But isn’t a spartan charge instant kill as well if done correctly?

I actually have a video on midhsip with this happening you kill them. I’ll get the link.
Edit**** I cannot post or get the link?? I have the Xbox one app how can I get a link to my clip?

Ive done it on empire, you hit them, standup, and fall.

Hmmm my video seems to contradict that?

They both go flying off the map at max speed. lul

Agreed , falcon punch style?

I just figure melee thrusting and ground pounding were game breaking

Same. I have a video with about 4 or 5 ground pounds. The first one is on Empire and i hit a guy in mid air and get the kill. Im at work on my phone but ill try to post the vid when i get home.

EDIT: I just watched the vid on smartglass. The guy died from the ground pound but he didnt until after he landed. I got the ground pound medal after we both landed. It didnt seem like there was an animation for being hit in the air.

I actually accidentally did this once during the Beta. It has to be perfectly centered on the person, then you just stop and fall. It’s an amazing feeling when you do it though! :smiley:

OT: The Ground Pound would win because it does more damage than the Shoulder Charge. If the Ground Pounder is weak, then I’d assume it’d be a tie.

Ground Pound

Totally forgot about this thread. Found my clip. I hit the first guy mid air.

Falcon Punch!

It kills them. I only managed to pull it off once in the beta and it was glorious in how lucky it was.

I wonder what would happen if 2 ground pounds collided before hitting the ground

Everyone is talking about Spartan Charge, but the OP clearly said “thrusted while sprinting”.
