Lowering your weapon.

Do you think we’ll be able to lower our weapon (for machinimas) In custom games online? I thought it was kind of strange having it only be in offline games, considering it’s just for show.

Also, I hope there isn’t a tricky combo to do just to enable it. What do you guys think?

I don’t know dude. Frankie IS the guy who said button combos in Halo 2 were cheating.

He already confirmed that it was in, but he wasn’t specific if it could be done online.

At one of the Conferences, they confirmed it.

I know, but I was wondering if it could be done online, seeing how in past halo games that wasn’t the case.

Was confirmed you could lower you weapon ONLINE back at RTX.

It’s been confirmed that you can lower your weapon online already.

That’s not confirmation at all. Never did he say Xbox Live, just multiplayer.

I just hope that this time around it isn’t some stupidly convoluted button combo that makes you jump/crouch.

lowering your weapon isn’t cheating, all it does it lower your weapon, and look like you’ve lowered your weapon to others, does not do any thing other than that.

Also, I do believe that you can do it online thanks to 343i, there are a lot of Machinima groups out there, a few that have worked with 343i closely, that do most of their work online, and in Reach and Halo 3, it’s a pain to record with your weapon lowered online, so I bet most of them expressed their thoughts about not having the ability to lower weapons online.

Dude. Wtf. Multiplayer is xbox live.

BTW he confirmed that no weapons will be also supported…

No. Xbox Live is a component of mulitplayer. There’s local and splitscreen too. In Halo Reach, lowering weapons is possible in single player, local and splitscreen, but not on Xbox Live. Saying they’re supporting something in Multiplayer does not automatically include Xbox Live.

uh… What? Multiplayer is playing with multiple players. It was not specified if it was over Xbox Live or not.

Umm, instead of button combos how about it be in the start menu during like forge or custom games where you see resume and options, there will be a button you press “Lower Weapon.”
