Ironically, one of the reasons that I play SWAT all the time is because I am terrible with the DMR .

I can get one-shot kills with headshots. But when it actually comes down to dueling with the DMR, I always lose - even if I shot first.

I know, and that's what I don't understand. I can shoot just as many times at my opponent, and I am always the one who winds up dead. it just gets really old after a while. With that said, Griffball is so much fun. You may not get that much XP from it, but man it's fun!

I guess that I could just adjust the search criteria to put me in a lobby with people that are around my rank, but how else would I get any better? I don't know, it just sucks that I'm not any better. I want to get better at MP, but I'm just having a hard time with it.

Also, does anyone else miss the Battle Rifle? I like the DMR, but I think that I like the BR just a little better.
I feel the same way. My beef with Reach is the armor abilities. I hate em!

I don't mind the armor abilities... but I'm not big on over half of the weapons.

I am ****ing terrible with the DMR. It's hilarious.

The classic playlist is awesome. In contrast it really showcases how garbage armor abilities and the Reach maps are lmao.

I sold this game for black ops but lately I've been wanting to get back into it since I've heard they've added many new things to the playlists and what not. Im happy to see a classic map playlist because I really hated the maps that Reach shipped with. How are the two map pack maps?

Haven't played Reach in a while... was going to play a bit online over the weekend, but one of the group i played online with passed away suddenly on Saturday.... & i've just not had the desire to play the game.

the first map pack is good... the maps are interesting to play IMHO.... not yet seen the new map pack

Are you keeping an eye on your bloom? It's all about keeping a rhythm, while aiming and dodging. Keep that in mind and finish with a head shot, you'll wreck every time.

I've officially quit Big Team Battle - one of my favorite playlists from Halo 2 and 3.

Because 99% of the time, you're playing on Paradiso, aka Banshee Rape. I can't ****ing stand that goddamn map.

When did they add Big Team Battle back to the playlist ? Last time I played which was a while ago it was in the random rotation Team Battle thing & I always hated that about Halo the whole game type rotation & forcing you to play game types you dont want to play. Then when I got the Halo: Reach Disc from Update Preview noticed its back in the playlist

My buddies and I just went back to Halo 3, which still has a very large active player list. I really just can't stand any map on Reach and my friends agree.

The maps that came with Reach are not very good but some of the fan made ones as well as the dlc are quite good. Though I see the armor lock is still annoying which is unfortunate

The only time I really liked Armor Lock was in Elite Slayer with the Needler. That was an epic combination, lol.

....But they nerf'd it.

i hate Amour Lock.... took me AGES to get the achievement as i could NEVER get the damn timing right... the charging vehicle would either bounce over me or i'd get splattered as i dropped...

Prefer Sprint or JetPack..... but generally use Sprint

I thought Sprint was only worth it if you were playing a map with swords. I always seemed to be the only one with Sprint and sword. Other team members used stealth... which... just never made sense to me.

hey if anybody downloads the Bungie app for ipod/iphone or whatever (needs iOS4) you get blue flames and can gift a star nameplate to 7 people.

if anyone wants a nameplate and doesn't have OS4 just post your gamertag and I'll unlock it for ye.
