> > > What if they are crouching? Then PV is great. You just crouched for almost the length of the map to find out that you are spotted trying to grab the objective. Also, with PV, it doesn’t even give a chance when fighting enemies with rockets, grenades, Spartan Laser, or sticky detonators, and pretty much any other explosive weapon.
> > >
> > > All they need to do is use PV to be able to make an extremely well-timed grenade trap. Now, if you know someone is marauding around with power weapons, the initial idea is to sneak up on them to either get an assassination, EMP Headshot, or stick for a quick kill. But now, enemies with power weapons can easily use that weapon for all of its ammo because there is no more sneaking up on them, because all they have to do is hit a button, and turn in a circle and they now know the locations of all threats.
> > Firstly you say PV is a good counter to people who crouch the whole game, trying to get the objective. Do people who crouch the whole game even exist? Getting from one side of the map to the other to get the objective while crouching and staying hidden is quite a feat. And anyways if you have even average team work then your objective should be pretty safe (unless the whole team rushes you, not one stealthy ninja wannabe) and even if it isn’t, as soon as he/she grabs for the objective everyone will be on him/her anyways.
> > Next you say “Also, with PV, it doesn’t even give a chance when fighting enemies with rockets, grenades, Spartan Laser, or sticky detonators, and pretty much any other explosive weapon” which I have no idea what your trying to get with this.
> > Thirdly you state that you could make some well timed grenade traps with PV, well if Halo 4 lives up to what 343i is saying then it will be a fast paced game and there will likely be no time for “grenade traps” and even if there is your gonna have to try hard to sneak up on him/her while hoping they don’t move and ruin your trick.
> > Lastly you say players with power weapons can just use PV to scan for assassination attempts, well I actually think motion trackers are more useful for that. You don’t even have to turn around to see someone behind you with a motion tracker, but say an enemy crouches up to you if your a good player you should keep moving or have good situational awareness when using a power weapon so you don’t get sneaked up on.
> I apologize, I should have been more specific. I was referring to people who crouch when near objectives. And with the community moving in the direction it is, average Teamwork is pretty rare to come by. Hell my last 3 matches on Reach were filled with guys that would just spit racist remarks to anyone who had a mic.
> About the power weapons. -If they can see you coming, they can shoot a rocket, Sticky Detonator, throw a grenade, or start charging the Laser so that the second you get to the corner you are dead.
> And “No time for grenade traps”? Honestly? How long does it take to see that someone is rushing around a corner, look down a little bit, and press the left trigger? I don’t know if anyone wants to play a game where 0.5-1 second is too slow to keep up.
> And assassinations attempts wasn’t the only thing I posted. EMP Headshots, Grenade Headshots, and sticks are also things that are very effective in taking down power weapon holders, and they are taken out of the equation because, guess what? You can time your power weapon to kill them before they can even finish turning the corner.
Ok, first of all average teamwork is most teamwork. I don’t know what you were taught at school, but average is or nearly always is most. And most of the players I’ve met playing Reach who had mikes were not racist.
About the power weapons, they can see you coming around the corner with the motion tracker+it’s more effective because you don’t have to turn around to see them coming.
By grenade traps I thought you meant precisely timed and placed traps, not simply lobbing a grenade around a corner. And in the halo I’m playing you don’t need a PV to bounce a grenade around a corner.
By assassination attempts I meant the outright selective killing assassination, not the all glorified animated assassination. And once again you can time all your shots with a motion tracker and I do all the time.
