Before I get flamed for being a COD fanboy or anything like that let me say that I’ve played Halo since Combat Evolved, and loved every game up until Halo Reach. I only picked up Modern Warfare at the end of MW2 and have played a lot of MW3.
I’m one of the many who hate loadouts as well as random personal ordnance that has made slayer a giant fiesta game. This may be an abstract and absurd suggestion for the next Halo game, but what if instead of loadouts and personal ordnance, Halo introduced killstreaks? You could even have an assault killstreak and support pointstreak like in MW3 where the support.
Tier 1 weapons:
Tier 2 weapons:
Saw - 1 clip
Needler - 2 clips
Scattershot - 1 clip
Concussion Rifle - 2 clips
Tier 3 weapons:
Shotgun - 1 clip
Sticky Detonator - 4 grenades
Railgun - 3 slugs
Tier 4 weapons:
Rocket Launcher - 2 rockets
Sniper Rifle - 2 clips
Beam Rifle - 50% ammo
Fuel Rod Gun - 2 clips
Incineration Cannon - 2 shots
Binary Rifle - 4 shots
Assault kills reset after death:
3 Kills (Any Tier 1 weapon
5 Kills (Any Tier 3 weapon or Armor ability)
10 Kills (Any Tier 4 weapon, overshield, camo from Halo 3, or damage boost)
Every 5 kills after the 10 killstreak will give you one more clip for your tier 3 weapon or request a new OS, AC, or DB.
Support (kills do not reset if you die):
5 Kills (Any Tier 1 weapon)
10 Kills (Any Tier 2 weapon or any armor ability)
15 Kills (Any Tier 3 weapon)
20 Kills (Any Tier 4 weapon, Overshield, camo from Halo 3, or Damage Boost)
Obviously this is just a rough sketch. I know that this may promote camping, but I feel Halo has turned into a Memorial Day campfest already. This would help reduce some of the randomness of personal ordnance as well as make armor abilities actually fun to try and obtain. If I could have it my way I’d just like a buffed version of Halo 3, but we have to compromise somewhere.
Love this? Hate this? Please leave some constructive feedback below. If you think it sucks please say why. I really don’t think this would ever happen, but it is kind of interesting to think about.
