    [UNSC] Grenade Launcher + Armor Lock Loadout for Stockpile & Invasion gametypes would completely shut out the offensive team.

    ok. so the UNSC grenade launcher... epic. u can pretty much use it like C4 so for all the campers out there... merry christmas. i definately think that once they see how RAPE the covenant grenade launcher is in the beta then they'll definately take out the personnel lock out of it in the final game. overall though looks freakin sweet. pistol's back XD. been waiting for that and the DMR since halo 2. im giddy. cant wait

    More options means more stradegies to employ, means a lot more fun and intellgient/creative gameplay with people! Nothing feels better than to out manuever and outsmart your opponent who still can't comprehend all the new weapons, abilities, and vehicular mayhem combinations at your disposal!However, this time Bungie needs to keep all options available in their multiplayer matchmaking maps! (I loved radars and flares in the Halo3 Beta release!, Tweak the functions, don't just get rid of the playability!!! Else all that hard work was for nothing!) Hopefully then learned that by now for this new release, else they will have a lot of dissapointed fans from Beta to Full Retail. Oh and overly used weapons need to be limited!! BR start for everyone was a horrible idea! Please keep the side quests of finding power weapons on a map open!!! I hate MW2 because you start with any option you chose, and thus no other purpose to find vehicles or explore the maps.

    I got a question. While you are doing an assassination, does this leave you vulnerable to attack?

    Do you think we be able to change the control style in the beta? that control style sounds like poopy to me...

    The DMR and the needle rifle are what the pros are going to use just like they use the BR in 3

    Did anyone else notice the "night vision" mapped on the D-pad (skip to 4:15)? I really hope there will be some night levels.

    the plasma launcher sounds really nice but i think the player lock on might be too much

    The new weapons are insane, especially the new long range weapons.
