It's been an essential part of the Halo mechanics since the beginning. Instead, I have to sit there and hover like an idiot and give the enemy an easy target. Awesome. I'll add the Thrusters here too. Copy/paste from AW.

-Automatics are OP. Why give the easiest gun to use in all of Halo a damage bump and a range bump? Absolutely absurd. Oh, and the Smart Scope needs to go.

-Power weapon timers are silly. Good players will know when the weapons spawn, now it's just a frenzy to get there when the timer reaches 0.

-The announcer is annoying beyond belief. I want to play Halo, not watch a gameshow.

-Too many medals, thus further rewarding noobs.

-Ranking system seems broken, or at least not working at the moment. Can't count the number of times I've had 3 teammates that don't know what a "kill" is.

-Maps look way too similar. It almost feels like every map 343 makes has its own category of "Maps made by 343" because of the look and feel.

I won't go too much further because most of this has already been stated by others. I will say that I'm glad they got rid of the loadouts from H4. But all in all, this is not the direction I wanted Halo to go. Being a Cod and Halo expert, I very much enjoyed these games separately, and now it feels like they're being merged into one, and I hate it. This game is almost unplayable for me, and I hate myself for still logging in and giving it more chances.

Briefly, with anti-clutch enabled. You still have to release it almost immediately or ground pound will begin to charge.

While I won't dispute that, please keep comments like this to the general thread. The intent of this thread is to gather constructive criticisms of the game in an effort to relay them to 343 as feedback.

Thrust is OP as fuck. A halo 4 version of that mechanic would go a long way in this game.... less speed, longer refresh time and a longer dead period would greatly benefit this concept.

AR isn't op since everyone spawns with one. However, it is incredibly inconsistent from game to game which is unacceptable.

Fine, have it your way if you want.

Good observations, but none of the above are fixable past the beta stage for retail except for maybe crouch jumping.

Good observations, but only fixable thing here past the beta stage for retail are weapons spread/power.

99% of everything mentioned are great points, but you are wasting your time they aren't going to make changes to the hard code engine internals. So sorry but jus' sayin'. I think someone needs to refresh what "beta" actually means and what can and cannot be fixed/changed at this point so you can not waste your time and energy for no reason and perhaps concentrate your industry on what can.
