    Anybody else still addicted to playing Halo 2 on Xbox live?

    Want to share some tips/stories?

    I've recently been perfecting the "noob combo"--charged plasma shot and battle rifle. It's a merciless pairing.

    At work you should be working anyway. ;)

    But it's true. And it's against the forum rules too, so I'll remove it. Stupid, boring rules. :spit:
     
  7. I dont have an Xbox, but anytime Im over at my guitarist's house, I play Halo 2 online. Im just now starting to get halfway decent.
     
  8. I pretty much stopped playing Halo 2 online after realizing that half of the people blasting me to oblivion were probably under the age of 10.
     
  9. I still play Halo 2 online sometimes, but I only play now when I know my friends are on.


    Too much cheating goes on, both of the definitely-cheating kind (super jumps, full auto battle rife hacks, etc.), and the legal cheating (spawn killing is my big pet peeve).


    Really, what's the glory in sniping somebody who has been alive for .2 seconds?

    two words.....scarab gun :D

    I can rip up just about anyone if i get my hands on either the magnum/smg combo or a magnum/magnum or a magnum/plasma. if i get a sword theres no point in playing anymore, everyones dead. if i get a sword and a rocket launcher i can do s*** most halo geeks have never seen befor (and no not just the rocket glitch). only problem with me is i dont get to show off unless i walk like 2 miles to my friends house cuz i have stupid dial-up here.

    Anyone can pwn a game of FFA Slayer with a n00b cannon and the Sword.

    I still play, but not much. It's been a month and a half since I was last logged in. It just sucks going into a game and there's a 'Level 6' who is really a level 32 in another gametype and he clears the game out in .2 seconds.

    I still get together every coupla weeks and LAN up 4 'boxes with my buddies. Then the stuff is fun.

    love halo 2,

    but with my measily 18 ranking, i've been playing w/ my bud who's a 29, and i'm sorta getting sick of all the "hacked" boards his friends have been tossed onto. kinda annoying.

    I dive-bombed a Warthog with my Wraith from up top on Coagulation once. It was the funniest thing I've ever seen. It completely wrecked his Warthog.
    What happened was I had climbed up the wall and he didn't see me and so parked himself at the base. Imagine the surprise he got when the nose of my Wraith hammered the thing to pieces.

    The xbox is upstairs. I have a 50ft. network cable running over the inside balcony and down into the office. It is the most ghettofantastic xbox live setup ever. The cable is hanging down in the middle of the room and is always in everybody's way.

    PM me with the link to that video you guys are talking about.

    Post your gamer tags! My friend and I play as: asadhobo
    Pronounced "A Sad Hobo" because he didn't know you could use spaces in a name.

    I have avoided buying an Xbox because the one time I played Halo 2 on Xbox live, I knew it would consume my life. It's the only online game I have seen the appeal of.
