What would you want to see in halo 4 ?

Hello there guys, recently I was thinking to myself what would I want to see in Halo 4. I came up with few of these

  • When customising your Spartan have the ability to pick a different colour for every single part of your armour. Lets say you want to have the helmet and the chest piece yellow, shoulders to be silver and the rest to be black.

  • Be able to play around with the terrain and weather effects on forge.

  • Have the ability to create a forge map and be able to play firefight on it.

  • Being able to spawn a Pelican on forge.

  • Have more options while customising your emblem.

Leave your ideas bellow.

  • Advanced Forge - Something like the current Forge, just with the option to add in objects, weapons, vehicles, textures, terrain, equipment, armour abilities, etc, that you created or downloaded online, using a program? You can choose not to, but it would be a possibility. This would let the people who enjoy the current Forge have even more options, without having to learn to use a program like that. The option to select if an object is destructible, plus the ability to make an object move, and also button and levers and such which can activate other objects would be nice. Maybe also a PC version of Forge for better aligning objects and stuff? This way, the possibilities would be endless. It would allow remakes to be completely accurate, with even the original weapons, vehicles, etc. The option to create a skybox on the program and setting it in-game would also be cool. I hope 343i does this, because it would make Halo amazing.

  • Advanced gametype customization - The ability to have a gametype automatically analyse a map and make it possible to choose weapons and loadouts specific to the map would be amazing. That way, if a weapon, vehicle, equipment, armour ability is on the map, you can choose whether it can be used, whether it’ll be in the game, whether it’ll be in a loadout, whether you’ll start with/in it, and many more. Then, for even further customization, one could learn the coding and code the gametype themselves.

  • Custom Server list - One can host a server or custom game and have it listed, so others can join. A button will show a pop-up with all the info about the game, and another button can flag it, if it’s misleading or inappropriate. There can be options to specify the game or map you want, and to select favourite servers/games, for fasting finding it.

Hmm just saying how do you guys know that 343 are even bringing forge back in halo 4.

The color idea I really like. Makes your spartan feel more and more you, instead of it being just two colors and a bunch of different permutations.

Terrain and weather effects would be cool, however I could see some possible freezing problems for it. This also counts for firefight. Remember that you’d have to program every route that the enemy could take, aircraft, weapon drops/vehicle drops, etc. Freezing problems would be… a calamity.

Pelican, we’ve been all waiting for it, and New Alexandria proved that it could be done. I’d like to see this happen.

Emblem options would be awesome too. I know for fact that I would love to have the ONI logo as my emblem.

MY IDEAS:

Armory makes a return, with the added options for enemy pieces of armor to be attached to yours. Color idea as you said, I’d also like to see. Different visor colors, and no, I’m not talking just default silver blue black gold. I’m talking red, reflection, orange… Make it like the color options. Remove the credit system. Make it so that you unlock everything by default, but you have to work to get the primadonna items.

Terminals and skulls should always be in a Halo game, so I’d like to see them return also. Could even make this work with the armory. For example, playing a campaign level, and finding a piece armor adds it to your armory.

No weapon customization. At all.

(LONG READ AND CRAP SPELLING)… you have been warned :wink:


Intro
Not all of us in the halo community are savage beasts of the MLG (jokes) and we like to have fun on Infection, map building, being a rebel and gliching, killing our best mates in a not so friendly game of Slayer or Invasion, Its called Custom games! here are some of my ideas for halo 4 to make it ever so great! :smiley:

Contense:
.Fire fight
.Forge
.Weapons
.Duel Wielding
.Vehicles
.Custom settings
.Armor and Character skins


Fire fight

I suggest that in the options for custom fire fright, where you can select what waves will arrive (like in reach) that there are 2 teams:
UNSC
COVI

And during this you can select what teams will take part in the battle and what units will appear on each wave, As shown below (also take note in being able to chose vehicles as a unit instead of a squad);
[UNSC] -red Team
1st wave:

  1. marines
  2. Sniper Team
  3. warthog unit

2nd wave:

3rd wave:

Bonus wave?

[Covenant]- Blue Team
1st wave:

  1. Grunts
  2. Jackals
  3. Elite with Ghost

2nd wave:

3rd wave:

Bonus wave?

This way you can play fire fight in the view of an elite and if possible make it a 8-side team game like Invasion?

Also a good option to have would be how the units arrive, Explained below;

COVI
Wave 1 options
1.Grunts -> Phantom drop ship
2.Jackels -> Spirit Drop ship
3. Elite with Ghost-> Phantom drop ship with Banshee escort.
UNSC
1.Marines -> ODST drop pods
2.Sniper Team-> Falcon
3.Warthog Unit -> Pelican with Hornet escort

Obviously there would be more options smiler to these like Pelican’s on their own, randomly appearing on the map, Spirit drop ships with escorts etc… the list can go on!

I think the ability to chose two teams in fire fight would crate huge battles- you wouldn’t even have to take part… you could sit in the corner of a map and just enjoy the view of a huge scale war! :smiley:


Forge

I under stand the whole argument about how forge worlds and forge maps take up a lot of memory and console enegery (or whatever) so how about an optional forge world to install to your xbox upon launch of halo 4? This map would be huge and not many restrictions due to memory being saved on your hardrive!

This map would take place on earth near New-Mombasa (or however you spell it) in the dessert- much like in levels 4 and 5 of Halo 3… Travis high way… or something like that :slight_smile:

In this forge world you can get every vehicle, turret, crate, barrel, weapon, wall, fence barricades you can see from any halo game belonging to the UNSC or Covi! so no more grey walls! :smiley: the walls are made up from snippets of maps like power house, and the mission on halo 3 just before the flood arrives (sorry name slips my mind)


Weapons

I think the ability to place down a large verity of weapons in forge for you custom games would be amazing, it would help make many good game modes and allow different experiences in custom games and custom games only!

I the fact 343 cant be bothered or dont have enough time to make new weapons… they could copy a weapon such as the assault rifle and give it a 60 round magazine and a silencer to make a spec ops rifle with basically no effort but a small skin change, make it not appear on radar when shooting and a larger magazine size!

outer ideas are:

.Variants of the smg, Normal and ODST smg.
.Battle rifle with m16 skin.
.Magnum with D-eagle skin.
.Brute plasma rifle (a red one for those who dont play halo2) and normal.
.a batton or night stick (works like a sward) so you can make cool cops and robbers game modes!
.The shot gun but with drum mag, slightly faster firing and lowered damage.
Grenade launcher with round drum… Like on the side of falcons in Halo Reach story.
.Carbine with paintball gun skin.
.Sniper with 10 round mag and 50 Cal skin.

Could go on all day!
May I say new weapons dont need to be balanced or fair! They could be just for custom games!

I also think 343 should import all weapons from previous Halo games… so that means DMR’s and Battle Rifles in the same game! Both versions of Assault rifle… with 60 round mag and 36 round mag.


Duel Wielding

I think Duel wielding should be in Halo 4… however take the SMG for example, You can only kill someone of you are duel wielding it. To combat this and make it fair, I propose when you have one SMG(or outer duel wield-able weapon) it has fairly good accuracy, but when you duel wield it… it suffers horribly from recoil and accuracy. This way duel wielding is only useful in CQB, but you are still able to use and kill people with balance- when the weapon is not duel wielded!

Also with my ideas above- for having the Halo ODST SMG and Halo CE magnum… you can use scopes on them until you duel wield them. This way you can stop over powered weapons.

I think for custom games sake, you should be able to say if a player is able to duel wiled or not.


Vehicles

Post your ideas below and see the list grow!

The ability to change color like with the mongoose!

Just from every halo!

warthogs-guss-troop-scout-rocket-pc halo rocket hog etc…

Different shade turrets-Fuel rod- AA- halo ce shade turrets too!

Banshee-herotic banshee with no banshe bomb but faster firing plasma!

PELICAN+ Phantom

CIVI VEHICLES!-police warthog (no turret and flashing lights) - Gangster warthog(cool paint job, go faster stripe and spinning rims) - forklift- work trucks and lorries-

Ghost with duel needlers and green paint job

Destroyed Vehicles and crashed pelican/phantom.

Post your ideas below and see the list grow!

Custom Game Settings

Yea it’s not a very long list, but it needs to be said!.. :confused:

.The ability to make a player not drop a weapon when killed… so pesky humans in infection dont steal swards >:(
.On match making there should be no bloom, but I think all weapons should have the option to suffer from bloom in custom games.
. The ability to make a player unable to duel wield weapons. (see Duel wielding)

Post ideas below and see the list grow!



Armor and Character Skins

Forge bots
As well as being able to change Elite and Spartan Armor. I think Forge bots could do the same! I also think a secondary ability would be pretty cool and I think it would be awesome for Machinima!
Ideas:
.Oricle, choice of colors and special ability when left trigger puled to fire spartan lazer!
.Covi Engineer, special ability, when left trigger pulled it repair vehicles in contact and gives all team within proximity over shields
.Sentinel, special ability, left trigger pulled- can use Sentinel beam!
.Maybe a UNSC-UAV?

Spartan and Elite armor!
I think in reach the customization for spartans was amazing! However the elites sucked! Halo 4 should have both races equally good with customization!
.I think there should receive armor not only with with credits, but get them from achievements and ranking up too!
.I also think it would be pretty cool to customize the color of each pice of armor-such as right lower leg color, right lower leg secondary etc- Instead of just the whole body primary and secondary colors. I also think the under armor (the black rubbery stuff)should be able to be changed like camouflage, urban, blue camo, red camo etc…
.More visor colors! Red, pink, green, orange, purple, steel!

Common sense.

> Hmm just saying how do you guys know that 343 are even bringing forge back in halo 4.

Why wouldn’t they?

> Hmm just saying how do you guys know that 343 are even bringing forge back in halo 4.

'Cause they said so.

It would be awesome if invasion was coming back and you would have Spartans being dropped off in a pelican at the beginning of the game, or Elites in phantoms. Also it would be cool of at the end of an invasion game you would have a shot cut-scene like BF BC2 when you finish a rush game.

I don’t want to see anything from Reach. I want to see it being treated as a sequel to Halo 3, which is what it is.

> Hmm just saying how do you guys know that 343 are even bringing forge back in halo 4.

Because of its massive success and popularity as well as the fact that it is enjoyable and no one seems to have anything against it unlike AAs.

Also forge greatly increases the game’s lifespan; same with Theatre. Probably the two most popular additions to the Halo game yet. They’d be insane not to include forge and theatre for Halo 4 and I’m pretty sure 343 studios is the epitome of sanity and not actually insane so…
