Funny I always find Legendary CE easydemonj00 wrote:Halo CE is almost impossible on Heroic with no skulls on so I can only imagine what it must be like LASO.
Laso is nearly impossible on halo CE h2
It's supposed to be hard. A gameplay that is set apart from the hardest ("normal") list of difficulty. I for one find it refreshing that they added a mode that is near impossible yet, at the same time, possible if the player has patience and strategically sets up each encounter for the next (ie: if you can bypass one to save ammo for the next, etc).TheCurrierKid wrote:Lol to everyone who thought it was too hard. It's actually impossible now. I got through 7 levels of Halo: CE before the Thanksgiving patch, and now I'm on Two Betrayals, which is where I will probably stop. I spent around 1 hour just getting outside, and by the time I got there, I had very little ammo, no grenades, no shields, and one bit of health. In order to go any further, I have to open the door, melee the grunt that is close to the opening just to get my shields, and somehow fight everyone off (by everyone I mean at least 2 elites, several jackals, and several grunts) without dying. Running to cover is not an option because there is no cover I can get even 1/95th of the way to before dying. It is impossible for them to have play-tested this new set, even with the best in the gaming world. The original set was doable, but the new set it entirely unachievable. You'd think with all the complaints about how hard it originally was, they wouldn't make it 7 times worse. But leave it to 343... I trusted them with Halo initially, and Halo: MCC was good enough to make up for Halo 4, which wasn't entirely terrible. I couldn't care less about the glitches and technical issues, because this is probably the most technically complex thing done in gaming in a long time, or maybe ever. But the things they do have control over like LASO skulls... the decisions in this area should be on par with how great the rest of the game is. The new LASO set is a thing which only .0001% of players will achieve. What a horrible use of resources and time, 343.
Believe it or not but the shield recharge via melee is actually a very good thing. Essentially (if you are accurate) you will have a constant shield and no issue with large groups (except Hunters). Most enemies (even elites) telegraph all their moves so if you easily move and bash and, with that, have a full shield due to it. It's way, WAY more effective than shooting them. I am serious man. Play Pillar of Autumn and give it a try and you'll see. That mission is a good training level for those looking to try it.l Xenoes l wrote:I'm not bothering with LASO anytime soon. Especially Halo 2A LASO. Invisible enemies and no shield recharge unless you melee is just BS. If they want is to be LASO then ALL SKULLS should be on not just the ones 343i sees fit.
Ι don't know if you went solo but in co-op it seems pretty doable for me with the current skull set as long as the game is giving out checkpoints!SiN SHOOT2KILL wrote:I completed LASO for CEA on the new skulls set, 3, and 4... I still think that 2A is virtually impossible under the current skull set. At a minimum, 343i needs to enable the Envy skull, as Envy was in LASO back in the day anyway.
Yeah it was okay... Truth and Reconciliation is the first major hurdle, followed by the Library... Then Two Betrayals but if you know how and when to apply speed running tactics appropriately it's not too hard. Just a grind, really.snikefriend wrote:SiN SHOOT2KILL wrote:I completed LASO for CEA on the new skulls set, 3, and 4... I still think that 2A is virtually impossible under the current skull set.

Yes the save and quit method works but it can lead to the, "Untracked Build," error that essentially makes you restart that level.AStreamOfCream wrote:I'll pass on Halo 2 anniversary. Probably CE too. I'd rather not have my xbox TV and/or controller destroyed.
EDIT: Does the save and quit method when you die work in these games? I don't want to go all the way through a game again doing this if it will not yield correct completion.
In my opinion Halo 2 set is fine. But the game isn't giving checkpoints which makes it impossible to do. Maybe they have to look at the checkpoint system and the reason it breaks.Lipodc wrote:I hope they change The Laso Set back for Halo CEA, it's not so much frustrating and do the correct set for Halo 2 Anniversary
Just enable the Scarab Skullsnikefriend wrote:Lipodc wrote:I hope they change The Laso Set back for Halo CEA, it's not so much frustrating and do the correct set for Halo 2 Anniversary
