Marines are fine easy kills in my opinions. Easy to sneak up on too.
Warzone Marines are OP
OP Zebs 3619
Here's why I think they're fine. You never have to fight more than one at a time. Step around a corner or down the stairs and dome the first one you see. If you're stepping out to where more than one has Line-of-Sight (LOS) at a time, you're doing something wrong and developing a bad habit, especially against other players.Marcos94 wrote:I think they should be SLIGHTLY nerfed. Not nerfed to completely useless, though. But they should be nerfed to the point where you're not doomed if you're facing a couple on your own.
Yeah, take a ghost or warthog and drive under the fortress on March. Don't stay more than one second because it's all those marines need to ruin your day. Even a really fast drive by will leave you with your shield halfway gone.spartan x169x wrote:Thats makes sense, but their AIM is just a tad to good. Its better than half the teams spartans some times. But at the same time, I like it because at least it does slow down the enemy in taking a location back.ShortySL wrote:They're only OP if the Spartans are also OP. Marines should be doing the same damage if they're using the same weapons . It's what always bugged me about the minions from Titanfall.
They are fine, all it takes is one br burst to the head and they are done for. If you are being killed by them you must be a reckless fool who thinks you can enter an enemy's fortified position without facing opposition.Zebs 3619 wrote:even more fun when people hide behind them or all 3 stand right next to each other.
Also im not joking, that shtuff is annoying.
Hahaha. ^ This. So damn true. My problem isn't that they're OP. It's that they have perfect frickin aim, on top of the fact that they magically happen to be psychic. Trying to sneak up to the garage from the roof to get a kill in on the defender and try and take the base, nope 3 Marines just spotted you for the camper, revealed your position by shooting up, and if you don't have a BR at that range, forget about it because their ARs ARE BRs. And if the Marines don't get ya now that you don't have a shield (because your crouch doesn't seem to work on psychic marines), the camper will. But if by some miracle you off all the Marines, hurt the camper enough to dive in and get his one shot -Yoink-, gues what! You missed one marine that didn't show up on radar due to distance. Camper now has enough help to finish you.Zebs 3619 wrote:they are so over powered i make sure not to drive any vehicle near the enemy base. they will consistently rip it to pieces. A Single Marine will destroy my ghost in seconds. Something that would take my AR 5 magazines worth of effort. Its also a ton of fun, if you dont have a precision weapon since they will gladly eat a magazine, or if the marines lag and eat the headshot. Cause yay, you thought your good aim would save you, nope GO ___ yourself, prepare to get slaughtered. Or pretend to be smart and shoot them before entering a base. sniping the one on the roof, a grenade on the first floor. You think its safe, but Nope, all 3 have respawned seconds after dying to give you a warm welcome and likely a random frag grenade they never threw. Youll be so glad when Tommy No Thumbs walks in and 1 shots you, then proceeds to spend 10 minutes trying to turn around on 1 sensitivity, walking into the wall trying to find the door after he completely out skilled you. Or my favorite, you thought you killed them all, but 1 random respawned even tho you are inside the building , though you dont know that because they dont show up on radar when they are admiring the sunset. even if they move its just a single red pixel of death waiting for you to trip over.
At any range too. They don't seem to suffer from damage or accuracy falloff is the problem, as my vehicles can attest to. Drive too close to the outside of a base and your shield gets shredded by perfectly aiming Marines. I literally fear them more than any promethean or elite boss at this point, and they have better aim than 75% of enemy Spartans.Blue Monika7782 wrote:I don't think the AI is good, per se.

They've clearly been given the betrayal buff. In previous Halo games if you killed too many Marines and had turn hostile their damage and accuracy was buffed insanely as punishment to the teamkilling.Wing X Custom wrote:At any range too.
