I really don't have a source if you played the game when it first came out. You would remember when the splinter grenades where at the spot where the plasma grenades are at instead of in random spots all over the map. The grenade used to be powerful and most people where using them but those that like to follow you or Spartan charge you alot where complaining alot and instead of 343 remove them they made it so you wouldn't come across them as much by putting them in random spots all over the map. Now we get a somewhat competitive playlist and they are removed completely. All 343 had to do is bring back Slayer Pro with Standard BR and Magnum starts 2 human grenades NO MOTION SENSOR and normal weapons on map. Having this wouldn't be hard to make and it would make it so anyone can play even if you don't have good aim. But instead we get this crap because the pros don't want to get rid of the motion sensor. 😡
I got to say it looks like I'm not playing this new season. I don't mind certain weapons being taken out but then they should be replaced with other weapons. I personally don't care for Halo League because you have a motion sensor. But to take out the splinter grenades passes the line. The grenades where already weaken without 343 telling people. Like when the game first came out they were powerful you would throw it at the ground while someone was chasing you and they would die. But one of the large updates came out and made it so u throw it at the floor and it it just takes off there shield. Now you're talking them out completely because a few pro gamers don't like them compared to the thousands of players that play the game. If they don't like it then they need suck it up and deal with it. The game has been fun with all the stuff but now with the stuff basically gone it just makes it stale and not fun to play.(bold) Really? when did this happen? source?
Well, I have been playing Halo 5 since day one and I'm 99% positive the Splinter Grenades damage output has never changed. Unyshek
would know, maybe he'll chime in here :) 343I did remove some of the Splinter Grenades placements around some maps, this is true if I recall, because there was just way too many of them on some maps at one time. Later on, in the Team Arena playlist they removed a few more because a lot of players (both pros and non pros) felt there was still too many around maps and instead of coming in pairs like other grenades they now came as single ones because people felt they were so strong to be getting two at a time.
I disagree that the pros want to keep the motion sensor. If you watch, fellow, talk or know any pro's, A LOT of them do want the motion sensor removed. It's 343I that is trying to find a happy medium with the radar, motion sensor, whatever you want to call it.
