Way to many people dont know that a punch in halo 3 turns the swords instant kill to just a shield breaker. so remember that next time you get rushed by that guy camping with a sword
Also that the swords kills based on its hit box so you can sometimes hit people to your complete sides. But getting your crosshair to turn red gives you the greatest lunge. Also to beat other people in sword duels always long lunge (right trigger) then quick slash (right bumper)
God I put way to much time in halo 3.
@dadood fromcheers, I believe that's only true for halo 2. Halo 3 the normal melee attack just dosen't lunge
@BoatyMcGorillaFace, you can melee the moment you get in range to strike juuuust a little early
@dadood fromcheers, my friends and I calculated how much time I spent playing Halo games one time. Turns out roughly 3% of my 25 year long life has been on a Halo game
@Frodrevo, mines about 7% of my 21 year old life.
@dadood fromcheers, finally a worthy opponent, our battle will be legendary!
@Frodrevo, nothing wrong with that. WORTWORTWORT
@WhoseLineIsItAnyway, my friends used to say "I bet you I could beat you in Halo" and I'd be like "haha I will fvcking wreck you" then I would proceed to curb stomp them 25 to 2
@Frodrevo, wish I had got into it earlier. Had a Wii until getting a 360 I think a year or so in Halo 3’s lifespan. Been hooked since, and now that Reach is back on MCC, I’m all in. And people can fight me all they want, I still think Halo 5’s multiplayer is some of the best the series has ever seen. Look me up if you want to pub stomp in social sometime, El Matadurr is my gamertag. Wife is La Livinator, we play together often.
@WhoseLineIsItAnyway, CTR AnF Jeff is my Xbox gamertag. I still have Halo 5 so hit me up anytime you want to pwn some no0bs
@dadood fromcheers, Actually I think sword duels were introduced in halo 3, where as blocking the first sword strike with just melee was in reach. I could be wrong in that however.
@Killing instincts , nah I did it in halo 3 all the time, tbh I dont know if it's in halo reach as i didnt play it that much
@Frodrevo, looked you up, is there a typo in there?
@WhoseLineIsItAnyway, no that's how it's spelled it's 3 separate words, did you put spaces?
@dadood fromcheers, sword vs sword I wait for them to lunge and double melee.
Sword vs shotgun I wait for the shot to pop then lunge for instant kill.
Shotgun vs sword you can wait for lunge to shoot and insta kill but timing can be tricky.
I’ll take the sword in those duels 9 times outta 10.
@dadood fromcheers, okay I have been testing this for the past 10 minutes, and it's just killing the person trying to melee. I've delayed the pummle I did preemptive melee, I did it at the sword strike, it just kills my other guy. are you sure your not thinking of reach, or halo 3 sword dualing? if not any advice I can try. because it's not working
@Killing instincts , yeah from my memory there were no duals in Halo 2, it started with 3. And I'm not sure what the best tactic was but I would just lunge then melee for the quickest follow up strike
@Frodrevo, the first time I got an UNFREAKING BELIEVABLE was in Halo 2 during a custom game with my friends. It was a small map so I was just running around hunting them down. It felt so amazing
@Killing instincts , give me a little and I'll bring out my old 360 to try it. If you are using it on the mcc I dont know since some mechanics were changed. Also I asked my friends I played with and they remember doing it in 3 as well
@PacificaPelican, 27 kills 0 deaths BTB on Valhalla... Best game I've ever had
@dadood fromcheers, i know and also did parkour in it. And tested everything i could. Hammer jumps. Bounced so many impossible grenade throws.
@Killing instincts , they are absolutely talking about Reach sword mechanics for literally their entire comment. Halo Reach is the only Halo game with melee parry, period.
@Frodrevo, yeah no luck yet. I’ll have to try again on my Xbox. Couldn’t find you in the app.
@WhoseLineIsItAnyway, that's weird but yeah the Xbox might do the trick
@Frodrevo, if you’ve already added me I should get the notification either way next week so it should be fine. Also, https://youtu.be/-i5qBRHcrBo
I just got halo reach infected flashbacks and mom, come pick me up, I'm scared
Wolf's blaster from smash ultimate is pretty bad@ss
Brought a sword to a fun fight again eh?
The infected gamemode really taught this lesson well.
