View Full Version : Halo 2 Update

In case you missed it, Bungie released the 1.1 update today. Completely rebalanced all the weapons (for example, grenades are much more powerful), got rid of most of the exploits (no more grabbing the flag through solid objects), and have instituted a permaban penalty on anyone who uses the standby cheat (you hit the standby button on your cable modem and cause everyone else in the match to hit the blue screen of wait while you go around killing everyone/grabbing the flag/etc).

They've been banning people for using standby cheats for a while now - they added in some better detection, and also made the game drop much faster if the host/clients lose connection. Even if you do it now, you won't get anything out of it.

Melees are stronger, if you jump up and then melee someone, it's a one-hit kill. At first, it seems overly powerful, however they're giving a lot more power back to people who don't dual wield. However, people who use a gun like a shotgun or battle rifle (good, and still uses melees/nades), it makes them overly powerful.
I haven't downloaded it yet, just what I heard. However, it sounds great. 2 new maps too, I think.

a) People adjusting to dual wielding not being the way to go 95% of the time.
b) The pendulum has swung a little too far.
I'll figure it out for myself after a few more games.
