Within the footage many Halo fans saw a concern for the multiplayer with a possible aim-down sights usage being performed on one of the weapons.Well great news for those concerned, studio head for Halo 5, Josh Holmes, took to Twitter to clarify that Halo 5 will have no hip penalty, nor movement penalties for aiming down the sights.
For those who do not know, Aim-Down Sights are when a shooter uses a closer focus on a weapon in order to increase view as well as bullet accuracy. This style of play is typical in military shooters like Call of Duty and Battlefield. In a game like Halo, which is more inclined with arena shooters than military shooters, it spells all disaster in the style of game play. The beauty of arena style shooters is to level the playing field between weapons. Many military shooters find themselves undergoing constant nerfing and buffing as certain weapons tend to play dominant over others creating a catastrophic disdain for the opponents of the barrel.
Tomorrow also begins the big Halo event Halofest. This even looks to deliver information for the much of the Halo universe as well as it’s plans for Halo 5: Guardians and other [un]announced related projects.
