How does everyone feel about the ADS?

From all the videos I’ve seen, Halo 5 seems to have it’s own ADS (Aim Down Sight) now. I didn’t play the beta, and I’m not sure how to feel about it yet just looking at it. Personally, a lack of ADS is what made Halo distinctly Halo. What do you think? Those that played the beta, what are your thoughts?

When I was in the beta, there was not a single moment when I thought “This doesn’t feel like Halo”. The ADS is actually pretty awesome once you start using it and it still has the Halo feel. I loved the beta and cannot wait for the game.

It’s always been in Halo, ever since Halo CE: So i’m used to it by now

What do you mean it’s always been in Halo? Halo 5 is the first to use it. Halo has always distinctively been without it.

I think they meant zooming in with certain weapons maybe. I think its fine and it descopes if you get shot so really its just like zooming in just a fancier animation.

I like it. I don’t think it won’t make halo feel not like halo.

Zooming in, it’s always been in, the magnum in Halo CE for example

I dunno, I use Adblock /pun

Jokes aside, I’m cool with it. It functions more like zooming in previous games than COD ironsights anyways.

I’m kinda okey with it now. Just have to get used to it more

But Halo has aways had an ADS mechanic. It’s just finally mapped to the control like 99% of other first person shooters.

I like to ADS, i do it often but sometimes unnecessarily lol.

Looks good, didn’t mind it in the beta.

Your guns don’t get more accurate from using it, it’s pretty much just a novelty feature. It’s still halo at its core and hip firing is still just as effective as it has been in every halo.

I see what you’re saying. Although they serve somewhat the same purpose, they are a bit different. Zooming in really takes away your peripheral vision much more than ADS. Plus Zooming In was a one button press while ADS is constantly holding down which makes it easier to switch back and forth.

BaDum-Tsss… “cricket noise”

I thought it was good! Lol. But yeah at first it was a little weird being in Halo but after playing the beta more and more I got the feel for it.

That depends entirely on your controller scheme. You could set ads to toggle like the old Halo zoom as well.

True… Might try it out… Ehh nvm I don’t wanna go through all that again haha

I used to be against it but it honestly doesn’t bother me. I think it’s fine.

It’s just a new animation for zoom.

You still get descoped and don’t lose speed or movement when zooming, just like before.

It looks like ADS, but feels like the old Halo scope with LT zoom. Thank God I’m also familiar with Call Of Duty game play as well. Adjusting isn’t much of an issue that way.
