The flood is unpleasant in CE.

Especially the rocket ones.
I think they were quite fun.

All I can say is that Two Betrayals was insane. Who in their right mind places 6+ rocket launcher Flood on a bridge?! And I'll never be able to forget the second pulse generator.

I can cope with that though. What I hate are the Halo 2 flood. They're terrifying like some kind of thriller. Almost every flood fight is dark, the carrier forms always sneaking around, how ineffective snipers are, how it takes 9 melees just to phase them, the sentinels that come with it, etc.

I wish in Halo 3 they were more challenging, but i am grateful its not some kind of horror.
Agreed.

There's no way Nate Hawbaker's favorite hero is Alan Stuart


ALAN IS A BEAUTIFUL MAN!

When I first saw the Flood I shat my pants which is what Bungie were aiming to achieve (at least that's what I hope they were aiming to achieve. If not ... <_< >_> <_< ).

I find that the Flood have that "Oh no" feel. Like, when you hear the squelching or the screaming before you see them you automatically go "Oh no" because you know what's going to come next.



Exactly. Sometimes, the Flood provides lulz, but it's intelligence is rock bottom.

I think your assessment of the Flood is completely accurate, Unanimate.

I just spent hours on High Charity on Legendary, with Juggernaut modded in, and I can easily say that Halo 2 Flood are the worst Flood ever.

Shotgun is near useless against Flood; swinging the sword wildly is pretty much the only reliable way of dispatching nearby ones; bad hit detection on the human combat forms; Elite combat forms are randomly shielded; Flood spawn in front and behind you; a speedrun in which you must kill all the enemies is extremely luck dependent since battles between Flood and Brutes don't always have the same result.

Halo 2's high learning curve really killed the fun. There was only one exception: the Juggernauts. 1 hit kill or not, they are really great to have around.
