Because BMS is too fast for you to have the stealth of not being exposed by the radar. There's lunatics on here who want BMS to be even faster.
Also if you assert that crouching is too slow for modern game-play and map sizes, then why isn't your solution to slightly buff to speed of crouching? Which would actually make a lot more sense and be far easier than this complete mess the radar is in.Why not use BMS instead? It's been really irrelevant since sprints inclusion. This radar actually gives it a use where as one may as well sprint with the other to move around a map, it also slows down gameplay which is a huge + to me. Crouching isn't a way to move around a map to begin with, it's purpose is to hide, mixed in with strafing, and to use the function of smart link and reduce recoil of weapons. It's not useless as people say it is.
Regardless the original radar doesn't work with h5. There's a reason it got dropped after the beta and why they're now testing a different version. H5 isn't CE-4, it plays completely different since it focuses so much on ability use.
BMS is not irrelevant. BMS allows you to shoot and move at a decent pace at the same time - it's the only way you can effectively strafe (which is vital in any good fight.) You should be moving with BMS most of the time in Halo games - the only reason this isn't as much of a thing in Halo 5 was because of the terrible decision to allow unlimited sprinting.
I've not noticed crouch reducing recoil. Do you have a source for this as I'd be interested to see if this is a thing? (Might be a new thing.)
Sprints inclusion isn't a good justification because sprinting is ridiculous in Halo 5. It was fine in Halo 4 because you couldn't sprint constantly, but Halo 5 allowing you to sprint constantly is a huge mistake. Not only is it bad for multiplayer, but I was able to sprint and skip through most of the campaign when I tried a second time just to see how bad it was.
BMS isn't that fast tho, especially with how often people still sprint around the maps. What exactly is the issue with BMS not showing on radar? People coming behind you and assainating you? Do you know how fast a flag carrier is getting across a map without boosting? Pretty slow if they aren't willing to give their position and don't flag juggle.
bms is only used when in combat as it's the only way you can shoot, give people the ability to sprint with it and see that changed. No one uses base movement to move around as your limiting yourself on power weapons and pickups since others will get to them faster sprinting as well as being to slow to back up team mates on the other side of a map. This radar gives base movement a use with it not being shown on radar, it's also slowed the pace down so long as people are actively trying to stay off radar and it makes sprint carry more of that risk/reward since you expose your position doing so. It isn't even just a halo 5 thing either, h4 was notorious for people running away due to sprint(cuz it wasn't really that limited lol) but I'll leave it at that as I don't want to go off topic all about sprint itself but how it effects this radar.
As for the recoil when croutched, it's all over the place. Youtube, here, Reddit, etc etc. people have done tons of weapon comparisons, looked at their stats, etc etc. they do decrease in recoil when crouched. It's partly why so many people do croutch in gunfights, to reduce recoil and be as accurate as possible, especially with automatics. I can link something if you'd like but it's literally all over the place that it's pretty common knowledge.
won't get into the last paragraph as this really isn't a sprint thread, just know I'm vs sprint entirely, which is why I like this radar giving BMS more of a role.
