I just knew everyone was going to be blown up at the end.


Admirable_Sun_8774

The dream is to have all 5 spartans in the vehicle, turrets laying down fire and destroying everything in sight, as the last two spartans drop in and kill everyone as turrets lay down even more covering fire. Unfortunately, Scorpions exist.


S-021

Spartan laser go brrrrr


JMObyx

As a Falcon Pilot, once upon a time me and my two gunners *defeated* a Scorpion!


lilschreck

B-b-but, tank beats everything?


JMObyx

Not if you're a good enough flier! It took place on the 360 servers last year, Rasu, the one with the giant shields in the sky. Seeing a tank explode, I got optimistic about my chances and pushed with my crew towards the enemy base, but then a Scorpion rolled up, the tank that exploded was an ally vehicle! I knew I don messed up, I was too far away from the closest shield to be able to hide behind it, so I directed my crew forward: Shoot the tank. I did not believe in my chances, and I knew that we would die, but by God I would make sure that the Scorpion would come out of it as bloodied as possible! And so the gunners fired while I took evasive manuevers, dodging the tank's rounds I flew ina pattern that was unpredictable, no straight lines, just keep dancing and curving. The Scorpion was soon leaking smoke, and before I knew it, it exploded, and I flew away in disbelief. Shame I wasn't able to record it.


TheLastSpartan117

For me I just sometimes just crashed into the tank while saying “This is the greatest plaaan”


Admirable_Sun_8774

A foolproof strategy, but you can only do it once...


bearsfan0143

So crazy it just might work…


No_Lawfulness_2998

And two plasma grenades beat tank because balance


EACshootemUP

Now that’s always epic. Taking down Gauss hogs and Scorpions are a damn tough task even if the ground vehicle driver is a complete noob. I pull the Rasu Falcon trick often and I’m happy to report that it still works well at the start of the battle, took down the enemy team’s scorpion and killed their sniper for a double kill.


Sir_WilliamsDD

What is the "Rasu Falcon trick"?


EACshootemUP

Gotta be real quick and hope the enemy team isn’t ready. Sprint to the falcon, never mind gunners, if they jump in I let them know it’s a suicide mission. Doesn’t matter the spawn/side of map. Get to the falcon ASAP, if spawning on blue side pull up hard right out of the map over the radar’s designation “Montana”, you’ll hit the soft kill barrier but with speed you’ll have time to fly over the ridge and dump altitude, maneuver right behind the enemy scorpion which should be oblivious to you (unless he’s aware by checking his radar) and then you can bail and destroy the tank by boarding it. The tricky part is timing the landing/bailing out of the falcon with the scorpion’s reload for a maximum chance of success. It doesn’t always work but when it does it definitely cripples the hell out of the enemy’s initial firepower. That plus if you manage to live you can skrew with the enemy team from their back line and maybe swipe their grenade launcher or sniper or rockets. If starting from other spawn (red side for hemmorage) same drill except you’re flying over water cave and high cave over that super sharp mountain lip and dumping altitude immediately after. If the scorpion see’s you on either assault you can always hug the map’s forge world wall as cover and use that to your advantage. It’s hard to do with the kill boundary timer but not impossible.

S-021

That's why I'm hoping that if in Infinite, the falcon is nrought back, we won't have it and the splaser in the same gamemode at one time


legofan1234

Thank god they changed how scorpion shells function so there’s a reason to use any other vehicle lol


Admirable_Sun_8774

How did they change them?


legofan1234

Rather than being an instant death laser the shells travel slower and have drop off


qfbztr4999

I didn't, fuck me I nearly died laughing.


BoomaMasta

Hahaha, same. I mainly play big team battle. Falcons are the main reason I complete the weekly multikill challenges.


Bobo3076

Ride together... die together


_deltaVelocity_

Getting blown up by some dipstick with a Splaser is core to the experience.


Zecketh

I really hope we can do this in Infinite, the Falcon is great for custom games.


Genked_Juicebox

I'm beginning to think 50/50 it'll be in the game, especially since they showed the wasp is back. Unless they go the Smash Ultimate route and give us all vehicles for sandbox fun, which I for one would absolutely *love*


LtCptSuicide

This I would love. Canon be damned in customs let us be able to use *EVERYTHING*


Genked_Juicebox

THIS!!


thatonegamerplayFH4

This I also wouldn't mind having the story bring back the falcon that would be awesome


LtCptSuicide

Honestly with the potential of SoF in Infinite I'm hoping we get access to some of the Halo Wars vehicles. Can somebody say Jackrabbit to replace the mongoose?


No_Lawfulness_2998

They mention condors in the gameplay trailer so yes


xTotalSellout

Honestly, if Multiplayer is just simulations now, I don’t see how anything they add would break canon. Didn’t a bunch of armors in Halo 5 just, like, not even exist? They were just simulated armors that manufacturers were testing in War Games? I’d love for them to to just go all out on weapons and vehicles in multiplayer but I don’t know if I see it happening


N7Liam

Halo Infinite is going the same route with the armors. They are called "Fractures" non canon armors, Shinobi armor is considered one.


Shiinoya

Battlefield 2042 is doing it! Here's hoping 343 joins the bandwagon!


FullMetalBiscuit

Multi-man air vehicles are always so cool.


King-Archdemon

Really makes me miss the falcon


rowshambow

I just want a Battlefield: Halo game...


unlivedSoup69

“Mom I want a halo themed battle field” “We already have a halo battle field game at home” Halo battlefield at home: BTB


rowshambow

Ugh. I want proper combined arms battle! Not just bigger team slayer!


AnInterestingPenguin

It looks like we might sort of be getting that in Infinite’s new btb


rowshambow

I'm trying to avoid seeing too much about the game. I don't want to be disappointed again like in 5. But that is good to hear!


Jackamalio626

BTB 2.0 is just Warzone without the moba elements, which doesnt sound like a huge improvement if im being honest, even with the removal of reqs.


N7Liam

Warzone without reqs or moba elements.. so Big Team?


Jackamalio626

No, big team is 8v8. Warzone is 12v12vE


N7Liam

halo infinite big team is 12v12. the pve is a moba element


potato1448

There's always Arma and the OPTRE mod, though it's only on PC. It's properly the closest I can think of at the moment!


rowshambow

Yeah I've tried my hand at things like that. Mil sim.


Shurikin135

That would be amazing. Just AMAZING.


JeremyKlown

Aren’t we getting custom games in the new battlefield?


voodeuteronomy

It’s called battlefield portal, and it’s included with bf2042


Knull_Gorr

We're finally getting a new Portal game.


Portalfan4351

Fuck yes my name doesn’t suck as much anymore


Aeone3

Kinda, if we are able to mod it we totally could get this, but I don’t know if we can or not. So far as I have heard it’s just battlefield games that you can use as assets in the portal


D3ADGLoW

Its got an entire visual scripting editor, it'll be pretty powerful


Aeone3

Oh shit, so yeah, we can do this… oh my fucking gods does that have me excited.


NazzerDawk

I want a game like Halo 5 Warzone with more depth and purely PvE.


TSLzipper

I've been saying this for so many years, especially after Invasion from Reach. Like, throw out the current lore for now. Just imagine a Halo game in the style of Battlefield that is UNSC vs Covenant. Hell it doesn't even need to be a full standalone game. They could definitely make it into a gametype with some extra work. Though I get why it isn't a focus which is a shame. Maybe with an increased player count and modding it will be possible. But I won't hold my breath for it just yet.


rowshambow

Battlefield does territories, map design, and objective games quite well. Also, have more vehicles, and higher player count would make combined arms, with air support, and tanks pushing at one or two objectives? Sign me up!


grimbolde

With the way the new Battlefield Portal function looks to work, you may be able to recreate something similar!


the_friendly_one

I'd be happy with an Insurgency: Halo game.


rowshambow

Try your hand at taking down a Chad Spartan as a beta innie!


Aroused_Pepperoni

Why do people ask for this when Warzone exists? Literally the same concept…


rowshambow

I guess it always feels small?


Jackamalio626

how does it feel small? Its the same playercount that BTB 2.0 is gonna have plus AI enemies to farm.


D3ADGLoW

Battle royale is not big team battle


aidsfree123

warzone is a halo 5 gametype bud


D3ADGLoW

Oh my bad, I forgot that existed. Halo 5 warzone is only 24 players though... Battlefield has a much higher player count and larger maps.


aidsfree123

Yeah it’s nothing like battlefield really. Much too small scale with more emphasis on pve.


7AndOneHalf

I think people want large-scale stuff. (32v32 instead of 12v12)


Lethargickitten-L3K

YEEEAAAAA-awww...


LombardBombardment

What?!?! I never knew you could use the passenger seats outside of campaign.


Donuts4TW

I think they’re using the campaign falcon that 343 added into forge


LombardBombardment

For real? I didn’t know that was added either. Thanks!


YoBoiWitTheShits

They've also added the chin gun falcon, sabre, seraph, all of the civilian vehicles and a shit ton of forge objects


Genked_Juicebox

Halo 3 also has the AA wraith and elephant added as forge vehicles!!


Gashnor

And Halo 4 got the flyable Pelican and ~~Longsword~~ Broadsword added as Forge vehicles


Genked_Juicebox

*Broadsword, longsword is the big triangle lookin bomber (end of CE etc) Still salty the pelican and phantom in Reach aren't flyable despite the game having full functionality for it in campaign


Gashnor

There's mods that add them to Reach Forge World as well, they're very much driveable.


Genked_Juicebox

I meant for vanilla, as my friends and I are on Xbox. Having them enabled in vanilla would make it possible for those to appear in the CGB


ginjaninja1520

i dont think its in vanilla cause the phantom can go super speed and go through solid objects, pelican would be cool since there seats in the back and a turret gunner seat


pinoyboyftw

Holy shit. It’s everything I dreamed of back when Reach was first released


YoBoiWitTheShits

Be warned the longsword and seraph are ridiculously overpowered and are designed for a large open space battle. In other words, prepare to crash after every evasive maneuver


tfrules

Hopefully there’ll be a falcon or a falcon equivalent in infinite, we need more team vehicles!


haider_117

“So how’s the war going for you guys?” “I can’t wait to go back home and see my mom-“ **E X P L O D E S**


NwahAndProud

One better friendship than a group of Spartans on a Falcon. Buddyhog with the enemy team!


CosmicChair

When you're in a buddyhog, *everyone* is a target.


KIngkoopa082810

Wht is “ fortunate son” by creedence clear water revival not playing?


SaWis0

Desert bus is so fun lol


Cumity

It felt like the first mission on reach


baylithe

God that was the best ending lmao


Paulie_Dev

The best part of desert bus maps is the whole team dying at once


Round_Secret_7404

Just seeing the other two Spartans nodding right before the explosion was brilliant


thePixelgamer1903

Wait you can sit in the passenger seats?


Basshead404

Where’s the guy crouching trying to sit on top? :(


EACshootemUP

This is why I’ve been flying the falcon for 10 years. I love this bird for its versatility, gun runs, and air to ground support. Nothing feels better than taking down banshees, helping my men on the ground secure a strategic power weapon from an assaulting group of enemies and so forth. Also, literally just flying people around on forge world and custom games. I made a lot of friends through piloting and I’ve made even more of them happy with kill streaks haha.


N7Liam

spartan laser goes brr


deathfromabove-

tip of the spear intensifies


Djdemarzo

desert bus is without a doubt the best game type I’ve played yet


Id_smash_monkies

My favorite part about all of these videos is how everyone tragically dies in the end


jtbsentinel

I’ve watched this so many times, I can’t stop laughing. Getting into vehicles with teammates in Halo almost never ends well 😂

LorenzoDalCol

This made my day


shanduhleer

The two guys playing on PC bobbing their heads like they were talking is what got me. Ooo damn, my lungs about collapsed


rayne12212

How do you sit in the passenger seats


Frozenback14

Custom games/forge


HailHydraforce

r/Unexpected


idontevenlift37

The Spartan who didn’t nod his head was like “somethings wrong, I can feel it”


scariermonsters

There's a special feeling in Halo 5 warzone when a whole team of Spartans jumps onto someone's tank and rides it into battle.


nonono64qwertyu

Why are there so many desert bus servers? Not that I dislike them, it's just kinda odd.


PlaidSkirtBroccoli

*than

POV: You and your mates were told you could fight in the same group on the Western Front.


Skidaddle26

I was waiting for Fortunate Son to start playing lol


MrJFrayFilms

We fly together and die together


Top_Hat11

The nodding absolutely killed me


ZESTYNACHO43

I don't know man, it's the little head nods that just make me chuckle, especially from the blue fire helmet spartan.


itsvoogle

My dream still is to fly a pelican full of spartans and drop them off with a fresh warthog in a hot LZ, “hang on tight” BOOOM all to be blown up by a scorpion in the end… Guess 343 keeps denying this dream of mine, ima go sleep now and dream of the possibilities….


DizzyCar49

Isn’t that a hornet tho


cakucaku2

Halo reach had falcons. Halo 3 (and later) had hornets.


DizzyCar49

Bruh I just finished reach how did I not notice that *facepalms*


therealblake23

I miss Halo: Reach so much..


Wulfscreed

This is the shit I love. Any game, but only better that it's some great Halo 'bullshit.' Gotta enjoy little things like crouching at people for fun or ridiculous camera work like this. I don't think in-game emotes will ever truly take over these dumb, simple things.


HALF-JAW-08

I love the Halo community


bigodst

Crouching and Nodding is the ultimate sign of peace in Halo multiplayer. And of course it explodes in the end


JDutch921

"so how's the war going for you guys?" I can't wait to see my mom- *dies*


8elipse

I found myself head banging involuntarily haha


AbracaDaniel21

I knew it was gonna happen and it still made me laugh


Plaguer_

Can elites get in the back of those falcons? Dont know id bungie would have bothered to make animations sence that kind of falcon wasnt inteded to multiplayer.


LOL_WhyT

Laughed so hard I thought I woke everyone up


HG21Reaper

I was waiting for everyone to blow the fuck up. I would’ve laughed hard af.


Bastardforsale

That reminds me of the one thing I hated about Reach on the MCC. I lost all the cool armor I had acquired from all the time I spent playing the original Reach.


Joelexion

The explosion 👌


Bhaltair_

they were friends and now they're dead


nope10220

Falcon is my favorite UNSC vehicle. I love the stories that come out of using it.


SpenFen

I wish you could transport a bomb or flag on falcon


BITTAH99

I hope they make a Reach anniversary one day

how do you guys get games on Reach??? I never find games on there it's so frustrating cuz i like the game so so much


Forbeus-Maximus

There is a custom games browser under multiplayer. That’s what I use


NoReportPlz

on PC? i've always played on xbox


Forbeus-Maximus

It’s on Xbox. That’s what I play as well

Am I forgetting these seats being usable? Or is this PC?

They're useable.


Dats_and_Cogs

Too bad as an elite I'm unable to get into a falcon unless it's the one with the gun on the side

Is reach on the pc still worth playing? I haven’t logged in scince launch

That the map where one side gets a seraph and the other doesn't? If so, rip.

this was both unexpected and expected. i love it.


Duckymaster21

Bro those transport falcons are racist. I can ride them as an elite 😭


Boylego

Falcone?


FrothyCoffee503

Wholesome ending.


PURPLMUNKII

I need a version of this with fortunate son playing over it


darkredwaters

I love playing New Alexandria just being a passenger in the Falcon, if only I could do the same in solo...


DWillows

yeah, unfortunately falcons are useless on any map that has literally even one anti-vehicle weapon for this very reason (and while not useless, underwhelming on any map with precision weapon starts). Falcon often has to get at least 3 kills just to break even, which it rarely does.
