I honestly don't like the idea of choosing your own load outs. It's not Halo in all honesty. I always took everyone being on a level playing field as something that was really important too the game. If you encounter someone that's 10 feet away right when the game starts someone shouldn't have an edge because they have a certain load out.
Agreed, in reality it doesn't make that much of a difference but I dislike the direction they may go with it, I can only hope it proves to be unpopular and 343 choose to go back to the classic Halo balance.
I think my main gripe with the game is Master Chief can sustain running for like 4 seconds, and then he stops. I'm sure Spartan II armor is heavy, but for all the walking and jumping he does with the shit on, he could run for at least a full minute. What a utterly terrible decision to limit the running. Zero reason for it. This isn't a Big Daddy here, it's Master Fucking Chief.
No, that would be bad, there are already enough situation where people run out into the Battlefield without thinking things through and manage to get away with it because they can just run away as fast as possible, that would be a lot worse if it was unlimited. There is actually a perk which you can use for unlimited sprint.
Also, for anybody who cares apparently the perfection medal is no more, I have gone at least 15 kills and no deaths in 2 of my games so far and didn't get the medal, that disappoints me.
