As explained by Exenius and others in this thread, the current method for submitting screenshots appears to be quite unfair and one-sided, as the people who use Twitter have a far greater chance of their shots being seen and featured than those without it.

To my knowledge, no screenshots from Waypoint have been featured since the #HaloHotShots was set up. In contrast, Twitter users have been featured almost exclusively, and the same artists often get featured multiple times. Although the multiple features are usually a result of the quality work they produce, there may have been occasions where it was due to a lack of new artists to choose from(the same artists post shots weekly).

Therefore, I'd be like to try to "bridge the gap" between Waypoint and Twitter by tweeting your screenshots and other content out to 343 via my Twitter.

I've tested this with another poster(Tsxki) and it did result in some slight success. The shot received a respectable amount of activity and was liked by ske7ch.

There's two ways that I could do it:
  1. Tweet 4 shots from the same person
  2. Tweet 4 shots from 4 different people (which I'd prefer to do)
I'd like to have a collection of shots ready to tweet on Wednesday/Thursday evenings, as that is the best time to send them IME.

As changes regarding frequency of the CU's are currently being discussed: "We're having some discussions internally but I think we're going to shift away from a weekly cadence - not exactly sure what that looks like yet but we're working through it." -Ske7ch

I'll try to confirm beforehand if an update is planned before tweeting your shots out.

Just post the Xbox DVR link to your shots and I'll send them to #HaloHotShots.
Note: I'd recommend titling your screenshots to help describe what the image is about.

Understandably, the screenshots must be of decent quality and not be edited(exceptions can made). Originality is important.

Old but useful screenshot tip thread.

Collection of my prefabs which you may find useful for creating shots :)
However, that doesn't mean that the every shot needs to be fully fx'd, campaign and scenic shots have also been featured.

You can also use screenshots from any Halo game, not just Halo 5.
I give this thread two thumbs up
Great!
Would you mind reposting that pic again? If you double tap x when in detached camera mode, it removes the theater play/pause option from the screen :)

Oh yeah. I didn't even notice that. I'm still new to this screenshots thing. I'll see what I can do

If you still regularly play WZFF, that might be a ideal way to assemble a collection of shots. (Covenant dropping from phantoms, assassinations and mythic bosses would be a good place to start)

You can also create some cool effects by flying the theater camera into explosions that have enemies in them.
Thank you my good man. THANK YOU.

Cool! Check this out: New and improved two thumbs up for this thread and Halo in general, now with Warrior Helm because it looks cool.
But seriously I appreciate any effort to rectify the unfairness of 343 paying so little attention to Waypoint. As someone who dislikes Twitter and Reddit, you have my sincere thanks for doing this.
@ MrMartini85 , is it OK with you if I tweet some of your Halo 5/MCC screenshots out to #HaloHotShots?

Some of the shots in your Xbox DVR look interesting 😀
Sorry I'm late. I somehow missed the tagged notification. This is a great idea, and an excellent start to what hopefully becomes the official way to submit screenshots.

Ive had this for a while, perfect timing.
I'll have my go at this:

Screenshot 1
Screenshot 2
Screenshot 3 (Might've deleted from dvr because it wasn't there, but still unedited)
Screenshot 4 (Same thing)

If you don't think I have a good chance or whatever feel free to just take one of them as to do the 4 from different people layout
Here's a cool screenshot of a Promethean Soldier that I took recently. It would be cool if you could tweet that to them

I've got some screenshots I cooked up a while back, though they're a bit on the simple side:

Here are a couple screenshots I’ve taken. One of them was seen in another forum I created, just thought I’d move it here as of suggestion for 343 to have a better chance of seeing them.
