in every HALO, there has been vehicles, and in every game, it comes to a chalange to a player, or a team to destroy the vehicle, or at least counter it
vehicular combat was always fun in the past HALO’s and reach runied it
Reach made it so any vehicle can be EASILY ripped to shreads by small arms fire, like the DMR, meaning that you spawn right off with an anti-armor weapon
you can’t drive two feet without being spammed by DMR fire
another fact about the DMR is the fact that it can flip vehicles,
the last time i checked, one small bullet can’t flip a 5 ton warthog
even to the most experienced vehicle drivers/pilots, the DMR is the most overpowered weapon in the history of HALO
another (slightly minor) problem is armor lock, splatters are considered useless because of this
bungie thought that the already useful and skill-orientated weapon needed to be buffed, so they made it an anti-vehicular weapon…what?
what were they thinking???
enough about the terribad counters
the vehicles themselves
some veicles are fine as they NOW are, some of them were fine BEFORE reach
some of the veicles that were fine to begin with are things like the banshee
the banshee (as you all know) can be horribly abused, the Fuel rod gun has been epicly buffed, and a buff that is not needed at all, in Halo 3 a good aim and a smart pilot could easily get a kill with a fuel rod, now all you have to do is point, shoot, and flip and you can get an Unfrigginbelevable without trying
a vehicle that’s good now is the warthog believe it or not
bungie gave it some agustments that benefit people who are smart with vehicles
like the minigun now has an overheat limit, this it helpful to the driver as the controller is not constantly vibrating as the gunner keeps the gun spooled
it also is quite bouncer, encouraging drivers to watch where their going instead of flooring it
other improvements include the fact that you can now disable a tank’s main weapon, this comes useful for tank vs. tank warfare, so the tide is not instantly decided based on who shot first
vehicles used to be the awesome part about halo (IMO) but reach ruined it
343i PLEASE fix vehicles in HALO 4!!!
