Have you ever wanted to spice up this game with flare? Do you have too much team spirit but don't know how to let it out? Hi there. I have come with an idea so revolutionary, it may change the Halo experience forever.

I have come up with a solution to forever change the gameplay in Halo 3. It is called Press B to highfive. How does this work you say? Well, whenever you pass a teammate in the game, an option will appear (Just like to get into a vehicle) to press B to highfive. Please note that this may differ with controller setups, however I am sticking to the default settings for now. The beauty of this option is that your teammate, has the option to "deny" your request for a highfive, by just passing you. This lets you know the trust rating of that teammate, and how likely you will be betrayed for him in the rocket launcher. Also note that this option would work in vehicles as well.

Allow me to offer some examples. Say you are doing the annual run, and whilst in the air jumping toward the Dawn, you and your teammate highfive each other in the ghosts. All right! Or, you just saw your teammate rack a sweet overkill with his shotgun. Yea! But what if your teammate betrayed you for the sniper and then tried to high five you later? Denied! The versatility of this option is endless.

P.S. If I wake up and find this option implemented, I will send every person at Bungie 20 dollars. Yea, I know thats a lot of money, but its worth it!

Note: Please take notice that the P.S. in this post may or may not apply.

Jeremiah 29:11
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Interesting idea.

The only problem I see is, as the default settings have B for melee, surely you would be at risk on weakening your teammate if you didn't press it at the right time.

XBL Gamertag - bigsteve100

Kinda like in Army of One where the two guys occasionally fistbump, hand shake, etc.

Don't worry about what people think. They don't do it often.

Arguing on the internet is like running in the special Olympics, even if you win, you're still retarded.

Could I high-five the other team? If he gets an extermination I want to run up and congratulate him.

Think of the possibilities. What a self esteem raiser to have someone offer you a high five just cause you did something right!

Yes, but what if you character took his hand off his gun for one second, and just high fives your partner. Also, imagine elite high fives. Elites high fiving spartans, the greatest sign of friendship!

I like it. There are plenty of negative actions that you can take such as Tbaggin and body mutilations but no way to pull off something positive.

Not sure about B for high five because of accidental melees. The D-pad would be better no?


How about a bow? In MMOs it is common to bow to show courtesy or thanks. So instead of a Tbaggin a guy we can bow to show that it was a good fight.

You'd be dead though. XD

"This is Your Captain Speaking"

That would be cool. High 5 instead of a melee to your teammate. Would make for some funny scenes mid battle.

-Explosions going on all around a bubble shield, reds rushing from the outside and 2 Blues high 5ing each other in the middle. Epic!

Perhaps accidental melees could take place, but thats the beauty of it. The risk. Do you trust your teammate enough to not even just offer him a high five, but to take the risk that comes along with it?

Hello & Welcome to Bungie.net

Please Mind for Random Retards

I like it. Simple, but cool. I just pressed B ;)

I have been reading the books and the spartans have a symbol they make over their faceplate that represents a smile they usualy only use it when they find a long lost friend who they thought was dead they use it because no one can tell if they are happy it would be cool if you could make that symbol to each other

Sounds good at first, but what about elites? Don't leave our friendly aliens out of the mix? Three fingers meet five in the ultimate sign of awesome!

Think of like how people would make maps just to get the best video of a high five! Two mongeese flipping off a halfpipe while the drivers high five! Spectacular!

Or new achievements!

I want 20 dollars. =(

But seriously, it would cost more than 20 bucks to make your high-five idea exist.
