Shotty snipers playlist is terrible

I even voted for it but that whole playlist is team sprint around with a shotgun

Thanks for ruining a snipers gametype again 343i.

Edit:

Constructive response from Avengers Creed

So after a few games and reading majority of the posts in this thread, I’ve deduced this much.

  1. This playlist is garbage with these maps.What I don’t get is how you can possibly enjoy a Shotty Snipes playlist given how terribly small the maps are. There’s no point in having the sniper. Just rename it “Shottys” and turn it into a casual, social playlist with the description “All Ye Who Enter Here, No Skill Is Required.” That would solve this whole uproar in seconds. Also, while you’re at it, throw in an actual Team Snipers playlist. I don’t want an option of using a sniper just to know it’s pointless and that I’m practically forced to use a shotgun regardless.

  2. Why rank for no skill?Every single game I play, the team that opts to use the weapon that requires any skill to use, the sniper, loses the game because the other team just runs and guns shottys the whole match. That or it’s an all out shotty fest. There is no skill involved in walking up to another player, laying your over-sized reticle over him, pulling the trigger, and watching overkill pop up. Don’t rank this playlist ever again. It’s absolutely embarrassing.

  3. Finally, give us larger maps.Every single map is like a CQB nightmare. I’m forced to literally scan every corner of my screen while watching my radar in my periph. Give the game some breathing room from the close quarter crap and make these maps a little more spacious. The close quarters thing got old after 5 games in a row on Swat with stupid Swatnuns (which is also broken). If you really want better reviews on this dumb playlist, make it a social game, take out the snipers and take out its ranking. Problem solved.

it was always like this. the previous games just had maps with longer lines of sight that were bigger overall.

It’s SHOTTY snipers. And tons of people snipe… Not sure what crazy games you’ve been playing in.

I am with you on this one!! OHHHH let’s not forget the spawns…

Try changing your tactics a bit. Also, you know you have a shotgun too, right?

I tried to warn everyone. Halo 5’s launch maps DO NOT SUPPORT SHOTTY SNIPERS!!! I made a post about it and told people not to vote it because it’d just be “Shotty Melee”

The maps are just too damn small for a snipers based gametype.

My games have been fairly balanced between snipers and sprinters, things got easier once I started snapshotting at mid-range. Pisses me off that my KDA is over 3 but my win pct is 16.6 though–rough game type.

There are sight lines out there, you just have to find them. Also, both shotty and snipes appear in the game type name…so yeah…

Oh, goody. Another whiny little kid mad about not winning every game he plays. Just stop.

Where is Blood Gulch when you need it!

Narrow, obscure sight lines works for individual players, but when you have four people angling for the same spot, it very quickly begins to resemble a three stooges door scene.

There will be a remake of headlong in a couple weeks. That’ll be great for team snipers!

Dude, your posts aren’t helpful and are extremely annoying. If you have nothing constructive to say, just leave. Seriously… It’s getting painfully old.

Pot calling the kettle black huh?? Most of my posts are OT. You come and hijack someone’s thread attacking them!

You are the kid running around with the shotgun noob.

This. One reason I really like these maps is there aren’t single good spots for sniping the entire map. You have to use specific spots on the map to your advantage and really know where your enemy will be when you get in position. In my opinion this has been the most fun shotty snipers yet.
