Why Classic Playlists Will FAIL!!!!!!!! Poll

OP GunnaNoscopeYa

Nerf the weapons for classic playlists?

Poll Ended

Classic playlist have always been requested and they have been added but the weapons are so over powered because they were designed around large maps and putting those weapons in small maps will make classic playlists the most deserted and abandoned playlist in Halo 5, so heres the question should 343 nerf the weapons so they wont wreck everybody because of their range and power?
Actually, people want a 4sk pistol for a classic playlist, so apparently the weapons aren't powerful enough.
here is how a classic playlist may work.
Weapons that should be featured : (some will and will not include smart scope)
  • Halo 2 BR
  • Magnum (regular) (without smart scope)
  • SPNKR Rocket Launcher
  • Assault rifle (without smart scope)
  • Projection SMG (without smart scope)
  • Sniper rifle
  • spartan laser
  • Halo 2 beam rifle
  • Needler (without smart scope)
  • Plasma pistol (without smart scope)
  • Brute plasma rifle (without smart scope)
  • Fuel Rod cannon
  • Shotgun (without smart scope)
  • Carbine
  • Energy sword (without smart scope)
Maps that should be featured (a list my favourite halo 1-3 maps)
  • Blood Gulch/Cogulation/Valhalla
  • Sidewinder/Avalanche
  • Battle Creak
  • Hang 'Em High
  • Ascension
  • Zanzibar
  • Ivory Tower
  • Lockout
  • Midship
  • Sandtrap
  • Standoff
  • Guardian
  • The Pit
I belive that if what I have explained above with NO SPARTAN ABILITIES and only smart scope useable on a few weapons (that had a scope in previous games) then a classic playlist in halo 5 may work
Increased movement speed should suffice.
It's fairly difficult to nail classic playlists as Halo 1-3 and Halo 4-5 play quite differently.
The reality of the situation.
That was very eye opening!
