- MCC HALO GAME: All
- ISSUE/FEEDBACK: Please consider adding a "universal Halo 5 Zoom & Shoot" controller setting.
- REPRO STEPS: Not applicable
- ADDITIONAL INFO: Please see linked screen shots below
Unlike most, I started with Halo 5 as my first halo game. The game is amazing, so much so that I know want to play all of the halo campaigns and multiplayer. Keep in mind that I have spent a bit of time, completed every achievement, playing halo 5 using the default controller setup. Its now muscle memory. However I typically switch back and forth between all the games in MCC and Halo 5 and experience issues with hitting the wrong button on the controller. I switched to zoom & shoot which gets me pretty close to Halo 5. However I always throw a grenade when trying to melee. Now I know you can remap buttons with the Xbox accessories app, however that posses other problems when overriding buttons like LB which can be used for menu navigation when not in the game. For those with Elite controllers, its not a big deal because we have a slider with two profiles available at any time. Simply slide to the other profile and when in game menu or Xbox menu and slide back when actually playing. Those with a standard controller however have to deal with the strange re-maps when navigating. Also using the re-map does not help with in game labels that assist you in knowing which button to press. For example in Halo 3, when jumping on a wraith with zoom and shoot, it pops up a message saying RB to drop a grenade. Well if you remap LB to RB and RB to R3, this can cause confusion until you remember on the fly your remapping. Below is my remapping to make MCC play just like Halo 5. I love the feel of this setup as its like playing halo 5 for everything. However this has only been tested with Halo CE, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Halo 4. Have not gotten Halo 3 ODST yet. I have converted a few of my friends that played Halo 5 to this. My opinion is it would be useful enough to get its own universal setting in Halo MCC.
Settings using Xbox Accessories App when playing MCC ONLY:
LB to RB - Universal grenade throw
RB to R3 - Universal melee
R3 to B - Universal crouch
B to LB - Halo 3 equipment, Halo 4 armor ability, Halo 5 dash
