Spartan Ops was a great idea. It was just executed awefully. I loved the idea of being on an actual battlefield with my Spartan other than a simulation. They just need to handle it like a campaign. No respawning, only take you back to the last checkpoint. If your Spartan does not reload between missions then you start the next mission with the exact same weapons, ammo, grenades, ect. in the next mission. You should be able to make your own personal loadout. Not like Halo 4's 5 loadouts but a simpler single personal loadout. Locke's loadout is Battle Rifle and Magnum. Chief's is the Assault Rifle and Magnum. Vale's is the SMG and the Plasma Pistol. All we select for our loadout is 2 weapons of our choice. We can choose an Assault Rifle, SMG, Battle Rifle, DMR, Magnun, Storm Rifle, Carbine, Plasma Pistol, Suppressor, Light Rifle, and Boltshot. You also select an armor mod. You have to make this loadout in order to start Spartan Ops. You spawn with this loadout in Spartan Ops and in Arena gametypes that allow it.
