BravoMLG made an analysis about thruster pack ability, the changes are clearly. In E3 build, there wasn’t the 3rd person shooter mode, the Pax build had the 3rd mode. What you guys think? E3 build, Pax build? Or we will see changes in the final product?
For me, 3rd mode is way better, you can have more view on the sides.
Eh… I want 1st person… makes more sense to me for an in combat move to not jar you in and out of views.
Like when you toss down an auto sentry or a regeneration field your spartan like… roars in 3rd person, I just think it is unnecessary and kinda cheesy. I’d rather have him toss it in 1st person like equipment in H3
It looks like it will be the most useless AA in the game. Why take up an AA for something that moves you maybe 2 feet to one direction? Any semi-competent player will still be able to kill you. I’d rather use something like Hardlight Shield or Regen Field.
Either way is fine with me.
I have a question, does the Thruster Pack allows you to rush forward and backwards only? Or you can move sideways too?
If anyone has played it already (E3 or PAX), could you please tell me?
Love it reminds me of evade,and i will be able to do evade ninja like i did all the time i multi-team in halo reach before they took evade out for spartans. I don’t know why they did. I never heard or saw complaints of it.

i would just like to point out that moving fast doesn’t mean the game speeds up, fast movement speed can actually slow the game down by making it much much easier to evade death and stay away from danger, increasing the size of the maps to accommodate for this actually makes this worse since the maps will now provide more play space in which to escape through easier.
as for thruster pack, my thoughts are that it actually looks balanced, a good AA, one of the very few things we’ve seen so fare that would actually fit in alright in halo, th 3rd person view just balances it out nicely since the disorienting nature makes it really difficult to aim and see while using it so you can’t easily use it to quickly turn the tide in battles like reachs OP evade or use it to charge in for easy kills and clean ups, instead you have to predict where you’re going to end up, where you’re facing and adjust ready, a fairly difficult skill to master because if you’re off slightly, you could screw yourself over.
