Hey everyone. All of this is in my own opinion. If you don’t agree with part of it, feel free to comment telling us why. The reason I’m making this thread is because I’ve been a fan of Team Snipers since it was a custom game in Halo CE, and have been playing it ever since. I played a few games in Halo 4, but then went back to playing Swat and BTB.
The main reason I play Snipers is because it feels more like a game of skill. This is because you not only have to be good at aiming, but you also have to have a feel for your surroundings or you’re going to get owned. Anyways, on to the suggestions.
- Add in Hologram to the basic load-outs. The first thing I noticed was the complete lack of armor abilities, which is a minor complaint but the game would be more tactical with certain armor abilities. Not ALL of them of course, but certain ones like Hologram make the game more fun.
- Take out “flinching”. I’m aware that flinching is in nearly every gametype, but it’s particularly noticeable in Team Snipers. One second you’ve got your reticle on someone’s head, next second someone pops you in the foot and you are staring at the ceiling. In a word, annoying.
- Bullet Spread. I don’t know if it’s just me who’s noticed this, but there seems to be a small amount of Bullet Spread in the Human Sniper Rifle. I’m pretty sure there was bullet spread in Reach too, but it was only noticeable from across massive maps. This BS (aptly abbreviated) is noticeable in mid-long (i.e. DMR range). That’s not cool. The Sniper has already been nerfed from H3 to HR, there’s no need to nerf it further.
Team Snipers has never been the most popular of playlists, but this time around it seemed as if it wasn’t set up for success. I know this may be a moot post now because of it’s removal, but if it gets put back in at some point (it’s going to take a long time for H5 to come out, there aren’t nearly enough playlists that they can cycle in and out without having to repeat one or two eventually) then it would be massively appreciated if these changes were made.
