Hi everyone - the Halo 5 team is in need of your feedback! Currently they're taking a look at REQs across the board and considering potential changes to some REQ card energy level requirements.

We'd love to get your response to this question:

If you could change the energy level of any one REQ item, what would it be?

Please think about it and keep it to ONE REQ item. Bonus points if you explain your reasoning!

Thank you for your feedback!


Edit: Note the team is already making a few changes effective Jan. 27:
Vehicles reduced energy cost
· Oni Gungoose to 3 from 4
· Anti-Air Wraith stays the same REQ energy level but is more common in packs (modified to be Rare).
· Banshee and Mantis to 5 from 6.

Weapons reduced energy cost
· River of Light to 5 from 6.
· Base Spartan Laser to 4 from 5.
· All Turrets down by 1 EXCEPT Jorge's Chaingun and except level 2 turrets (no turrets become level 1).
Nornfang Level 1 REQ. Thank you for your time!

Okay but seriously.

Anything with scopes should be lower, IMO. Morph sights being such a high level doesn't really make much sense to me. I think the DMR Morph Sight is 8? That's a bit odd.

I would lower stuff like that down one level.

The BR/SMG ones are also pretty high. I feel like they should all be base level, almost.
For me, I'd bump the REQ level of the Wasp by 1, for all variants. The basic wasp can be really hard to take down if your team is struggling to gain REQ energy but the other team already has Level 3 REQs and then are gaining more quickly as they earn kills with the wasp. It sort of compounds the issue, IMO.

Edit - This applies to Warzone and Warzone Assault. I like the current levels for Firefight!
regular wasp req 4
Wraiths lowered by 1 Req level across the board.
ske7ch...

I personally feel that each Spartan Laser should be dropped by one req level each. Spartan Laser down to a level 4, Endgame to a level 5 and Selene's Lance down to a level 6.

The current levels feel to high for their current amount of use.

Thank you for requesting feedback!

Except for bayonets?
ONI Wasp REQ level 5 or 6 pls. It becomes increasingly difficult to play WZ and Assault when there are 4+ ONI Wasps tearing my team up!

Thanks!

lol point, I read that as ALL BR/SMG
Regular Hydra Launcher should be Req Level 4, I'ts not fair that the Railgun is Req Level 4 and the Hydra is 5.
Thank You for your time!
plasma rifles should all be moved down 1 in opinion
While I want to say a Wasp up by one level...

What about the COG sights for each weapon? Are they supposed to be equal, +1 from Base or +2 from Base? Because each weapon has a different standard with their COG variant.

It would be great for most scopes to be like this. I agree.
To preface this, thank you for doing the Ske7ch!

Personally, I would make the Phaeton REQ 6 (and the Helios 7) maybe even move the standard down to ultra-rare rarity. In no way is the current Phaeton comparable to the ultra banshee, which it coexists with in REQ 7 instead it is more a close air support specialised banshee and is more vulnerable due to its lower manoeuvrability and appearance as a 'high priority' target.
The gunfighter magnum should be level one. I enjoy using it but what's the point if I could instead have a br
H2BR from 4 to 3.
