Taken from the halo 4 section
“The Nemesis armor mod allows users to target and track down previous attacking enemies, highlighting them on the armor’s passive sensors.”
(aka Stalker specialization)
Now, i may be mistaken, but i’m pretty sure that would mean it would highlight the last person that attacked or killed you on your radar. At no point does it ever say the words “waypoint” or “marker”
In the bulletin it says an icon on your HUD appears, marking the last person that killed you.
sensor: A device that detects or measures a physical property and records, indicates, or otherwise responds to it.
there are sensors on the HUD, obviously. an example of a sensor would be hovering over someone.
I can hardly wait for the whole stalker vs stalker drama to ensue. I can see two dudes constantly just wiping each other out the whole match. The post game lobby should be interesting in that Jerry Springer sorta way.
Nemesis armor – which features lines that are both strong and stealthy – gives you an icon on your HUD of the last person that killed you. While some people utilize it to get revenge, others use it to avoid that person (for obvious reasons). It’s also useful when playing defense for seeing where an offensive player is going. On maps with limited visibility, Nemesis can provide a short window of intelligence in the movement of enemy players or teams, allowing a respawning team to react and steal a match. In play testing, we’ve seen players trusting the extra information implicitly and falling for feints or being target fixated with the extra information and being lured into unfavorable situations. As with everything in Halo, this upgrade allows you to tailor your play to your style <mark>but remember that the enemy team is aware of the ability and will be countering and often using it or another option to tip the scales back in their favor.</mark>
This from the bulliten, and I noticed something that most people overlooked.
For all we know it could be a direction indicator or a waypoint but we really don’t know. I’m assuming that if you are using nemisis and the person that you are after gets killed then it will go away rendering it useless anyways. Just my thoughts though and its going to be a while before we even start seeing people using these so who knows what will happen.
