A regenerator and bubble shield? Yeah because thats totally not overpowered. Everybody will use drop shield and ignore all other loadouts and because of this, nobody will die and gameplay will be incredibly slow paced and boring. If this anti-christ appears in Reach, have it in campaign and maybe Firefight but not the matchmaking.

It only regenerates health, can be destroyed and has a 20 second cooldown. It's fine.

  • 06.18.2010 1:18 AM PST

It's not going to be on every map. We don't even know if it's in matchmaking yet.

Looked like it might have been a Firefight only AA. So before you complain just wait and see.

Hai it's me voiceruler. I like custom games a lot more than matchmaking, and the best type of custom game is infection, and i <3 campaign.

If it ain't my chair, it ain't my problem. That's what I say.

That's what everyone said about armor lock, and just look at it now.

Well, excuse me for believing that a shield that not only protects you from further damage but also happens to fully heal you is overpowered. My mistake.

If thats the way it is, i'm happy. But if i'm trying to out DMR somebody just for him to pull out a shield that heals him i'll be kinda pissed.

Seeing as how it can break when under heavy damage, I wouldn't worry about it. Did you also think that the Bubble Shield would be overpowered?

  • 06.18.2010 1:29 AM PST

It's less useful than the Bubble Shield and Regenerator in a sense. The bubble can apparently be shot at until it collapses, like the Deployable Cover, and it only regenerates health.

Me thinks that drop shields will be staying. Also who cares if its anti christ. Its anti covenant which matters

  • 06.18.2010 1:30 AM PST

Another person that hasn't used somthing yet they know its OP how do you guy do that!/Sarcasm

  • 06.18.2010 1:31 AM PST

let me guess your one of the people who said armor lock was overpowered because you couldn't kill him or that bloom decreased skill

No the bubble shield isn't overpowered because you have to work to get it and it takes about 5 minutes to respawn. By the time you take out the shield, they'll have already regenerated their shield.

I agree...

But clearly he has a long history of making amazing games which are better than halo and so clearly he knows better than bungie...

Thunder Dan is En Fuego!

the only thing that needs to go is that stupid hammer of dawn rip off, without that gun the game is as close to perfect as its going to get, dropshield included

Armor power isn't so much overpowered as it is annoying. Bloom takes a crap load of skill that whiny MLG wannabe kids can't get used to. How am i trolling because i think differantly?
