Halo CE LASO Challenge
Posted: Posted December 21st, 2016
Edited December 21st, 2016 by Vandy

@Count Dooku:

Would you be interested in trying Halo CE LASO? At least to start with. I'm not sure even I would have the patience to go through all of the campaigns LASO.

Or anyone else? Unfortunately Halo CE only allows two-player co-op.

These are the active skulls and stipulations:

Black Eye - Your shields only recharge when you melee enemies.
Boom - Explosions have twice the damage radius.
Fog - The motion tracker is disabled.
Eye Patch - Auto aim features disabled for all weapons.
Foreign - Players cannot pick up or use Covenant weapons.
Famine - Weapons dropped by AI have half the ammo they normally would.
Malfunction - Every time you respawn, a random element of your HUD is disabled.
Recession - Every shot is worth twice the ammo.
Grunt Birthday Party - Grunt headshots lead to glorious celebrations.
Grunt Funeral - Grunt bodies explode like plasma grenades.
Iron - Dying in co-op resets you at your last saved checkpoint. Dying solo restarts the level.
Mythic - Enemies have increased health.

...

This may be a terrible idea.

Oh God, I think the last Halo game I did LASO on was Reach. And after doing that regular legendary seemed so easy. I'm not sure I would have the patience honestly. Halo 1 is already probably the hardest Halo game to beat on legendary lol.

Most seem to agree that Halo 2 is the most difficult to LASO from what I have been reading. What scares me most about CE LASO is no plasma weapons, meaning no plasma pistols to drain Elite shields.

Yeah I think I am in the middle of a Legendary run on Halo 2 in MCC that I stopped once halo 5 came out. I should get back to that.

Count_Dooku and I began the great journey last night. We made it through the first level without much trouble. Level 2, Halo, was more challenging, especially the first standoff with all of the Covenant dropships, but once we got past that it wasn't too bad. Unfortunately MCC decided to crash during the last standoff in the rocks so we lost about an hour of progress since you can't save level progress during co-op. At one point we had it down to about three remaining enemies to finish the level but I was hunted down by a blue elite and smacked to death.

I'm not looking forward to doing that first tower again!

I noticed there seems to be some kind of... input lag, for lack of a better description, on my end. Makes getting accurate headshots with the pistol a real pain. Which really sucks when every bullet counts for two!

Posted January 4th by Count Dooku
Count Dooku

Oh that's not good. Maybe my connection. I have experienced the same thing while not hosting a lobby of MCC campaign.

Posted January 4th by Vandy

I've been reading that it's a known issue with co-op in MCC. There's not much in the way of a fix.

I'll probably get used to it/learn to compensate for it as we keep going.

Here's a good guide to Truth and Reconciliation. I think we need to try and get more kills with the assault rifle and meleeing to conserve sniper ammo.

Posted January 5th by Vandy
Vandy

I've been avoiding the AR mainly because everything has so much health and shooting it exposes you longer than just pop-shotting with the sniper/pistol. But sniper ammo definitely became an issue as it went on.

I'll give this a better look later. I definitely think staying in the canyon area is our best bet once we get to the gravity lift.

Also those sword elites are going to be suuuper fun with my input lag

Posted January 5th by Count Dooku
Count Dooku

You could host this time around. I'm just afraid it may jeopardize the playlist progress. That's just because I am paranoid with the MCC.

Posted January 5th by Vandy
Vandy

Worst case I can grab the camo and hide. Some of those side halls are pretty long if you can get into them.

I wouldn't mind trying to host, but you might just end up with my problem!

As for playlist progress, I notice my playlist has progressed two maps since we started. So I think it would do the same for you.

Edited January 5th by Count Dooku

That camo appears to be important for transitioning into the next area without much trouble. Same for the camo that got us into trouble last night, haha.

Ah well, we'll figure something out after the 10th retry

Hey man,

Not sure. Already made a commitment to playing something else. What time did you have in mind? Will you be around tomorrow?

Posted February 3rd by Count Dooku

Likely pretty late. 9 or 10.

Same goes for tomorrow but maybe around 8.

We'll get it one way or the other then. I'll let you know later if I'm available.

CE only allows two player co-op unfortunately. We could set a date to continue our Halo 5 co-op though.

Ok, no worries. I'll just keep playing BotW then lol.

I can definitely be around Saturday, I'll shoot you a message on skype tonight if I'm around.

Okay. FYI:

Terminal respiratory secretions (or simply terminal secretions), known colloquially as a death rattle, are sounds often produced by someone who is near death as a result of fluids such as saliva and bronchial secretions accumulating in the throat and upper chest.

So Flood noises?

I suppose so but I was referencing Keyes's [yells in pain then a death rattle]

@Count Dooku:

Here's a LASO guide to Two Betrayals. There's a useful despawn trick towards the beginning of the level but it appears we'll have to fight through most of the level.
