How many times have you gone over a sea of dead bodies, looking for that sniper rifle that you know is there, or those rockets that could change the tide of battle if found? It seems like at least once every few games, I’ll go over some weapons, only to scream to the heavens wondering why I would ever want an assault rifle compared to the rockets… or a pistol compared to a sniper rifle.
When weapons are piled on top of each other, it’s literally a matter of pixels in regards to which weapon you’re going to pickup. I suggest that weapon preference be added to Halo 4. What I mean is, is that when 2 or more weapons are within close proximity to each other, you pick up whichever weapon you have set to preference above the other.
My preference would look something like this:
(Whatever else I missed)
With my preferences… In weapon graves, I would never pickup an assault rifle or plasma repeater, unless that’s all there was. I would always pickup Rockets first, followed by sniper, and etc.
This would prevent much frustration in regards to trying to pickup a weapon in a grave crowded area such as Countdown’s Top Health Pack, or Sword Base’s Yellow lift.
