I demand a refund!

A personal ordnance refund, that is.

Linky.

This made me sadface (I chose Spartan Laser and it gave me Plasma Grenades which I already had)

Ever encountered this glitch before, Waypoint?

I thought that how this game worked. You wanted and chose one thing, and the game goes “nope”.

-Hit a guy in the back, and the game goes “that guy gets to not only live but keep his shield”.

-Leading in a game of Flood 2 rounds in, and the game decides it’s time to rip away that potential 1st by making you Flood!

-Want to quickly kill a guy via a beatdown? Game says you’ll be doing an assassination which will fail in this group of enemies.

-Backed out from matchmaking, but wanted to reselect that playlist? Well too bad, the game wants you to jump in the playlist below.

-Wanted to hear your friends on teamspeak, or your team in-game? Well sorry, got to have this music you can’t turn off!

those were spartan plasma-laser-nades

My oh so many gripes about this game…

Worst thing about ordnance drops is they can be stolen. whats the -Yoinking!- point grafting to get my team a bonus just so the other team can use it. Bad bad gameplay choice. I want my freaking gravity hammer back

lol yeah I mean who wouldn’t want needler over sniper right? … happens to me to often

Hit the Xbox big green button and then go to the music selection. Choose some music and then go down and far right to set the volume to zero. Voila… no music.

Called TEAMWORK, and maybe call your ordnance in when there ain’t enemies around then they can’t kill you and steal it! Give it a try.

Yah. I usually leave calling in ordnance until I die and respawn. With my luck if I call it when on a streak, I usually just die straight away.

-Want to capture a point in Dominion? Well lets just have your “team mates” push you out of the way!

-Want to spawn in Dominion? Sorry assassinated, and again, and again, and again, and again.

-Want to spawn in Swat or Team Snipers? Here’s a nice open field with no cover!

-You’re the king in regicide, about to win? Let’s just give that to the guy in 2nd place.

-Want to create your very own custom Flood gametype? You won’t need any of these options, and you definitely won’t ever need to edit the Flood loadouts!

-Trying to align 2 objects in Forge? Well you certainly won’t need precision editing or zoom for that! But here are some oddly placed magnets that don’t often work.

-Just got into that Banshee, huh? Well here is some DMR fire…oh, well that was fast.

-Playing oddball huh? You won’t need to spawn anywhere near your team.

-Trying to listen into enemy movement in SWAT? Well lets spawn a team mate right beside you.

-Bout to kill the guy with the oddball/bomb? Well he’ll just pass that to you and you’ll pick it up no matter what you want!

-That’s a nice rocket launcher, you’ll go far with that! But lets just give everyone else a rocket launcher as well!

I lol’d

Problem is that you teammates can steal stuff too… especially when the -Yoink!- ordnance doesn’t land where you want it (seems random at times). I even had it land about 20ft behind me the one time.

yep, one of my teammates stole my scattershot. he took it almost instantly because I was right beside it and I couldnt manage to take it. that was really stupid, thought they had a timer. o well, I made sure we lost that game lol

HAs anybody tried to mute somebody in game? That requires more skill than the actual multiplayer.

lol… ever tried backing out of the game before the next round starts and the menus open then close right down again multiple times before you give in and have to quit to the home screen or shut the thing down completely. Really does my head in.

-Chose a playlist and want to meet other players to play a match? Well lets put you on the losing team, 2 seconds away from the end of a match.

-Hey you harmlessly left matchmaking! Lets just strip all your loadouts and your stance to default.

-You left a game where your team was busy in a circle jerk. Let’s call that a loss on your stats on Waypoint.

-Joined a game of Flood midway, and want to get to the killing? Well first players are going to betray you because we’ve made you appear as an enemy.

-Finally got a shotgun from an ordnance drop, little buddy? Too bad we gave everyone pocket shotguns with the Boltshot.

-Chose that explosives tactical package, huh?! Well it won’t have any noticeable effect on the damage of your grenades!

-Shield got taken down pretty quickly. Lets take a year to bring that thing back.

-Found Erosion in Forge and noticed there are pipe objects in the menu? Can’t walk in them.

-Got into that big tough robot they call the Mantis, did ya?! Well you’ll be a nice distraction for your team.

-Got put on the Blue team in Dominion on Exile? Hopefully the predictable loss will serve you well.

-Achievement to keep 6 marines alive in Campaign? Lets make those marines incredibly weak and have them rush forward like idiots!

> -Achievement to keep 6 marines alive in Campaign? Lets make those marines incredibly weak and have them rush forward like idiots!

I thoroughly back that last one. I lost count of how many times I tried to get that one done. Either I die trying to protect the marines or the marines die while I get my shield back. Took me umpteen times before I finally did it this afternoon (giving a marine the Binary Rifle and then giving the rest Light Rifles did the trick). Because they had sniper rifles they had to hold back a bit…

Once I got them up the hill it only took two tries to handle the final wave. But god was that one of the most awful achievements EVER (I vowed to get 100% achievements in Halo 4 because I enjoy playing it so much but thought I wouldn’t be able to because of the stupid escort missions).

-Within a vehicle that’s entirely surrounding you, like a banshee? Well were just gonna shoot you out of there and the Banshee will be fine!

-Got a wraith, huh? Lets just give the entire enemy team rocket launchers and coincidentally they’ll all be using jetpacks.

-Slammed your foot down in the Mantis, on an enemy? No problem he won’t take any damage and will just come around to jump on your backside.

-Got the operator perk? We gave everyone plasma pistols, tee hee.

MOOOOAAAAARRRRR!!!

Seriously, that was funny.

> -Achievement to keep 6 marines alive in Campaign? Lets make those marines incredibly weak and have them rush forward like idiots!

Yeahhhhh, sort of makes you wonder if these marines went to the same tactical school as the Keystone Cops swat team. I just gave up on that achievement because I really don’t think there’s a way to keep those idiots alive without a party of 4 spartan’s armed to the teeth charging that hill.
