Shotgun Starts? Can I get a wall bouncing ability as well. I've always wanted to play Gears of Halo /s
Breakout Refresh Feedback Thread
OP Forum Team
Because they were based on arena maps and if I recall correctly they had full shields as well. I'm talking about adding breakout exactly how it was to the arena playlist with the original breakout maps.Circa Darkrage wrote:In the playlist update, Breakout is ranked.oO LACONIC Oo wrote:No 343...just no...please bring back breakout the way it was and make it ranked again. You guys took a competitive playlist and made an actionsack out of it. It's random chaotic and casual. It dose not belong in a ranked playlist. My sugestion:
1. Change back to the original exactly the way it was
2. Keep the new maps and add them to the original ones (the more maps there are the better for us)
3. Make breakout ranked again
4. Add breakout to the team arena playlist (team arena should include all competitive game types, it might bring in some new player who might otherwise never tried it)
if if your not bringing back the original...then at least take away the shotgun starts and make the flag work the way it used to be.
And Breakout was once added to the Team Arena playlist, as Breakout arena on Arena maps, rather than the traditional Breakout maps, but was faced with negative feedback. so it was dropped about 10 months ago.
I do like the shotgun addition. That really emphasizes the close-quarters combat, which I like. I am really indifferent about the radar and new flag rule, but I do like the full shield. I think the extended mag on the magnum is unnecessary, however.Quote:Please provide feedback on the Breakout refresh in this thread! To read up on the new Breakout, read today's Community Update.
Since launch, we’ve been gathering your feedback on the mode, the maps, the weapon layouts, and more here on Waypoint, and we’ve made a variety of updates to address that. In Breakout, the following changes have been made:
Thank you! We look forward to hearing your feedback.
- Full Shields
- Starting Weapons: Pistol (with Extended Magazine) & Shotgun
- Radar is enabled
- Flag is brought home to score
Whatever man, point still stands that shotty starts are a load. As for shields and motion tracker, if everyone hated arena breakout (myself included, it was terrible) I'm not sure why they decided to turn it into the official breakout playlist, but you know how 343 is. They don't care what we want and if this is the new breakout because they're so stubborn then I at LEAST want shottys gone.SAS03 wrote:No, it's not just the shotgun starts that we hate.

I like the the flag playing like neutral flag and returning to your own base. Makes the mid presence a little more important.
Full shields is great.
Shotty start is not great. You just can't have shotty start in a ranked playlist IMO. Leave it social if you want the shotty, otherwise pistol ar start.
I I like this breakout better, but I was not a fan of the original mode. I think breakout players are going to hate this.
I think a big reason why people dislike the new breakout is the shotty starts. It's a bit ridiculous. I understand that you want to have players "Retain lethality" but as this man said, it's bonkers to have that in a ranked playlist. I've played over 10 games now and many spartans just want to pistol duel with you until their shields are popped and then swap to shotgun and hope you approach around a corner.
I think you should consider giving us BR starts, so one player is still a force to be reckoned with, and then each team gets one shotgun spawn. Like how the BR used to be in the original breakout.
The problem is that every spartan starts with an easy OHKO weapon now, whereas before, only one member of your team had an easy OHKO weapon (The BR)
This is a good point. Why brand breakout as something new, fresh, and exciting, and then go and try to make it as similar as possible to the traditional modes?The Kerminater wrote:I liked the old Breakout way better, and I completely disagree with the reasoning behind the change. Creating this odd marriage between Breakout and standard Halo gameplay just ruins both of those concepts. Breakout 2.0 gives an uncanny valley vibe when I play it. It feels like something's wrong with it because it can't commit to either playstyle ideology.
The shotgun starts work out better than I expected, but I would still vastly prefer SMG starts. It felt a lot more like a tactical spec-ops kinda mode when we had SMGs. Shotguns just make it feel like it's trying to be Gears of War (great timing with that, BTW).
