Halo and Destiny - news and reviews.

Your enemy is well trained, well equipped, and battle-hardened.


The Invasion playlist is now available for inspection via the Halo Reach Beta. It's set on the Boneyard map which appears to be the biggest Halo Map ever.

You mission as a Spartan is to defend 'the core'  if you are the attacking Elite, you are trying to capture it. It's like an epic Capture the Flag but with a better story and lots of guns.

And tanks. Tanks beat everything eh? I got a overkill and a killing frenzy in a tank where the elites had the core just below the steps to their goal. It was absolutely thrilling to drive the tank in at a fast crawl and annihilate the Elites and stall their charge long enough for a Spartan victory.

Invasion is going to be a useful asset for the Halo franchise, I cant.hardly.wait to see what other tricks Bungie have in store for us!

Extra:

Teabag Prevention has some advice on using Reach weapons:

Plasma Repeater



This one's pretty basic. As you may or may not know, the Plasma Repeater predates the Plasma Rifle we all grew to use in Halos 1, 2 and 3. The trick to using this weapon is to fire it in bursts. Much like the Assault Rifles in the past Halos, as well as Reach, this weapon becomes less accurate the longer it fires. The other downside is the fact that it overheats. Hold X to prevent the Plasma Repeater from overheating.
