What Does 343 Have Against Health Packs?

Halo CE had them. Then Halo 2 and 3 removed health packs. Halo 3 ODST brought health packs back, and it carried over to Reach. Then all of a sudden we’re back to no health packs with Halo 4, 5, and Infinite. The latter two have health bars, but no packs. What’s wrong with good old health packs? They’re making Infinite like Halo Reach, so they might as well bring health packs back. Can we at least have them for custom games?

Infinite is definitely closer to 3 than Reach my guy.

Well, we just regen health instead, which makes health packs pretty much unnecessary.


Regaining health is better in my opinion. A classic gameplaysetting would be cool though.

Canon trumps logic my guy. Mk. VI MJOLNIR on doesn’t have health monitoring. Just shields.

Whats the point of healthpacks when your health comes back when your shields do, and your health is pretty much negligable anyway?

I much prefer the health regen to the packs. It means I can focus on combat instead of disengaging in search of health.
