Halo 5 is having the same pistol and flag :(

In the game informer ad it shows a spartan holding the flag with a pistol. I hope you can at least drop it this time.

Why is this a problem again? Because Halo 3 didn’t have Flagnum, right?

Halo 1,2,3 and reach didn’t have this. It takes away flag juggling and I’d like to see it return.

Hopefully there’s at least an option to change the Flagnum (and disable the auto pick-up). I prefer the old flag carrying, which made the carrier more vulnerable.

I’m glad they kept it.

I hope that can be changed I really don’t care for the flagnum, hopefully something to turn it off and no auto pickup

It’s nice actually having a way to defend yourself, especially when you have one of those teams where no one helps escort you or takes any measure to ensure you make it back safely with the flag. They definitely need to make it so players can drop the flag, though

No thanks

Flagnum is cool! But I hope you can also put down the flag to switch between your 2 weapons!

While I like flagnum there should at least be an option to toggle it off for customs.

I actually like the flagnum system, but I’d like it to be made use of in a different way.

I think the way it should work is if you have a pistol-style weapon in your inventory at the time (Magnum, Plasma Pistol, Boltshot, etc…) when you pickup the flag you get the flagnum combo, but if you don’t you just get the normal two-handed flag.

Also you should have the option to drop it at any time.

I loved the Flagnum in CTF. IMHO I thought it made CTF better. And I’m glad to see it’s returning.

However, there should definitely be an option to disable it.

At the very least I hope they abandon Auto Pick up and no flag drops.

There should always be options, and there most likely will be an option to turn the flagnum off considering 343 is adding a lot of options for people who do not like some of these features. I just hope that we can drop the flag in MM, if the player finds it more efficient to drop the flag, so be it.

I do not believe we should be able to “Ricochet” the flag great distances but it would be nice to have a sort of spike move and/or relay hand-off option to pass the flag.

Flagnum was a step for empowerment for the player with the flag, now I’d like the next step for the team.

If within melee range of a teammate and both players are looking at each other, “Hold ‘X’ to pass flag” appears on both screens.

Of course the other option is a 2m (7’) or so spike throw used by the “Throw grenade” button. It’s meant for 2 things;

  1. Allowing a player to toss away the flag, whatever reason.
  2. It’s a projectile-GP that does HEAVY damage against vehicles and infantry with little to no splash… Call it the “Gungnir.” Yes it can destroy incoming vehicles or infantry. Yes it can be tossed from a ledge for greater distance. Yes it can be tossed while jumping.

“Spiking” the flag gives those that want the ability to rid themselves of the flag that ability. For those that like the near useless but still flashy moves, it’s a great 1-shot kill on many things…

If relaying isn’t in, players must be looking at the flag and holding X to catch it. If they don’t, it can kill. Think of its physics as a dodge ball. If the enemy infantry does see it coming and holds reload, they can avoid death… To a degree.

I rather have Flagnum the hearing two words being repeated over and over again for a minute straight.

Where did you see that?

The flagnum was something I thought was pretty nifty, but players not being able to drop it or at least tweak the game settings to drop it was uncool.

I’m ok with flagnum (I’d prefer that the magnum didn’t get a buff just because you’re holding a flag, but whatever) But no auto pickup and I better be able to drop that flag when I need to.

Ok so they just take out the announcer saying that and put in a visual indicator, I think you should be able to drop it and not have auto pick up, that way if you have a power weapon you can actually use them while carrying the flag.
