Subject: Best Difficulty to Play ODST on?

I am going to play through ODST again, what is the best, most realistic and atmospheric difficulty?

  • 10.27.2012 6:56 AM PST

Heroic/Legendary.

It's up to you really. There is no "realistic" difficulty.

Heroic description, "This is the way Halo was meant to be played."

OT: Heroic

Vote for me for a free cookie.

Heroic is the mans difficulty

Legendary

This ^ ... the only way (especially the final battle)

  • 10.28.2012 5:48 AM PST

New Marathon? Thanks Bungie!

Legendary IMO but many would deem it too grueling

  • 10.29.2012 8:41 PM PST

Hanger one I just shredded with the SMGs until ammo was out and I just threw 'nades like a boss while BRing.

My experience playing Cairo Station on Legendary

Realistic? Heroic, sure Legendary is harder, but your enemies are just a little too difficult and take away from the fun.

I always found heroic to be the sweet spot when first playing a new Halo campaign. After I get the hang of things I toss a couple of skulls on to keep me on my toes.

actually, a part of the Heroic description says this is the way Halo is meant to be played

  • 11.12.2012 6:09 PM PST

Heroic.

Does flaming people on forums count as an esport?

Legendary with GBP and nothing else. Maybe Heroic Thunderstorm GBP.

Yes because seeing confetti coming out of someone when they get shot is normal,right?

The only skulls that can help with that are Famine and Cowbell.

Don't bother with Tough Luck as it has the annoying side effect of making every single Brute berserk.

Mythic will make you very durable and ODSTs should be tougher than marines so I guess that might work too.

  • 11.15.2012 10:31 PM PST

Well yeah but that doesn't mean it's realistic. Realistically, one plasma pistol shot to a marines chest would kill him instantly.

I actually consider GBP a tactical advantage because I'm able to see faster whether the grunt is dead or not and move on to the next target. Plus I've played so much with it on when I play without the game feels incredibly different.

The OP stated that he wanted a "most realistic and atmospheric". Confetti coming out of someones head when they get shot is not realistic.

Says who? I'd wager that more than half of grunts killed in Halo history have had their heads explode...Think about it.

JK. If you're going for atmosphere OP, set it to heroic (so it's not overly difficult or rage-inducing and your tactics can be more varied). Maybe put on Mythic or Famine if you want more "realism"

Man, I don't know, Misguided. Has been a while, but I recall a lot of running around, trying to find a reasonably loaded weapon. (Not Dead Space-style, but...) Legendary is tough enough IMO.

Yes, but sitting back with 6 rockets and a full god-pistol can put a reasonably skilled player to sleep. Famine forces you to come out of your comfort zone and use weapons you would normally leave behind.

  • 11.20.2012 10:11 PM PST

Heroic. It's difficult but not impossible.

Whole campaign? Heroic, you want to enjoy the game after all. Legendary usually frustates you, making completing the game quite a chore, Its only there for the challenge.

Legendary or bust, brotanical garden. Am far from the world's greatest gamer, but, I generally end up playing on the hardest setting of any game. The challenge is the thing. (!)

So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.

-Gandalf

Probably Heroic.

If you have already done legendary then i would say normal, If not then go legendary, Its hard though and very time consuming.
