At least someone admits the Jetpack was broken.Sunsdune wrote:I'm glad you enjoyed those games , a lot of us didn't. And although I loved using the Jet pack it was completely broken. It broke map flow , it broke map creation from time to time (maps with places only jet-packs can get to [if it made it faster or easier to get to is one thing , but having to use a specific ability to reach areas that are other wise inaccessible is just bad map design]) and it made for horrible social games because you inevitably had one or two people every game who couldn't do anything with it but become a Spartan skeet.
Seriously, people complain about Armor Lock, but I was okay with it in comparison to the geo-ignoring uses of Jetpack and the infuriating places people would go on maps that clearly weren't designed for that level of vertical movement. It would've been better as a map pickup or something, because it's basically a power weapon in AA form.
(That said, the Jetpack was somehow tolerable in Halo 4 compared to Reach-which is weird.)
