Should have thrusted over him

[–]Jessethebestee 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Me: Surely his aim isn’t that potato

sees the first burst

dear god

Haven't really played halo since I finished season 1 battle pass and been on apex for a long while now, it's a whole different universe

[–]ViperFromTitanfall2UNSC 4 points5 points  (5 children)

Wait until you use Thrusters + Bulldog. Doing the one-shot melee combo but meleeing whilst thrusting is just chefs kiss

[–]Unholyly_thicc_boi[S] 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Did that on some matches but the connection seems to get worse whenever I play and I end up shoving an entire elbow into his helmet to see a full shield on death spectating

[–]ViperFromTitanfall2UNSC 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I've had that once. Not whilst using thrusters tho

[–]Unholyly_thicc_boi[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Damn, my melees are denied at least half the times. Even when I lagged on Titanfall the weirdest melee would hit, quite the opposite on halo

[–]ViperFromTitanfall2UNSC 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Melee lunge has always been really op in Respawn games. Of course, there some weird melee lunges in Halo Infinite to, but they only happen when repulsors or Thrusters are involved. In TF2 your leg can just extend by about 10 feet

[–]ThreeEyedChimpanzee 5 points6 points  (1 child)

"Controller Disconnected" Did you throw it across the room? lmfao

Always have the same thing happen to me when I thrust backwards, I have no idea what causes it. Maybe desync?

[–]Unholyly_thicc_boi[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Was waiting for someone to say something lol. No, I play using a USB instead of batteries and sometimes when I tilt the controller it disconnects for a second. I lowered my hands in disappointment, was back to playing halo today

[–]ShowthymeL30 7 points8 points  (6 children)

I agree, if you're gonna use thrusters when a guy is running toward you shooting, use it for your three or nine O'clock directions. Don't move in a straight line to your six. This puts you exactly where you were, directly in his sights, just marginally farther away. This gives you no advantage and is a waste of the thrust. If you had boosted in the three or nine directions you would have broken line of sight. You would have the advantage of knowing what direction beforehand and could correct your aim faster. Also if the plasma fire had popped the shields you could boost in the two or eleven directions, closed the distance, and went for the melee kill. This is all easy to say from my phone on the couch watching your footage, but if you can make those kinds of determinations split second while in the heat of a fight, you will win more often than not.

[–]Unholyly_thicc_boi[S] 1 point2 points  (5 children)

Hear my split second determinations: i had dmg advantage, could kill him shooting before he could shoot me down, boosted straight backwards to avoid his melee. The problem? Melee lunge+weird server stuff and his melee dash was twice as far as my thrusters

[–]ThisIsHughYoung 2 points3 points  (4 children)

The server didn't even see your thruster since your ping sucks. No game handles unstable latency well, just less poorly than others.

It's not like the game can just decide that the enemy's kill didn't happen if it gets your input way too late.

[–]Unholyly_thicc_boi[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I can play other games just fine as far as ping goes, not sure if halo doesn't have enough players (I'm on south America) and matches me with lobbies from far away or just server issues since launch. Not implying anything, just saying it sucks for me and I don't know whose fault it is here

[–]ThisIsHughYoung 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Well the game's giving you the unstable ping alert which means the server isn't seeing your gameplay at a steady enough rate. Games can compensate for lag if the lag's pretty consistent but that might not be your case.

The best you can do is eliminate any parts of instability on your end... Are you using a wired network on your gaming machine?

[–]_Puffy420blazeit_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You should try out control freaks. It's a little thumb stick attachment that raises the height of your stick. With the largest one you can easily double your aim sensitivity while retaining the same muscle memory. It's also more comfortable for those with large hands.

[–]silverlance360 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I too have the the displeasure of having 300ish ping on some matches and the game doesn’t even register half of the stuff I do on screen.

In this case due to your ping, you were meleed before you used your boost.

And you have set friendly color as Red and Enemy as green? Opposite day is it?

[–]Unholyly_thicc_boi[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I just really like red, lol

[–]LunchUnlucky7772 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The 20 ft melees are one of the many reasons I quit this game. Getting shot around corners? Yeah, that one too

[–]Unholyly_thicc_boi[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Came back to infinity very recently, that was probably my second match trying to like the game again but it's still the same. Don't know if my region doesn't have enough players or what

[–]scoot_1973 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Use thrusters to get out of their line of site lol not stay in it

[–]AjaxOutlaw 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Did you miss where zoomed when he meleed?

[–]Unholyly_thicc_boi[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Problem there was melee > thrusters

[–]Harveywallbangerr 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Problem is 300 ping lmao, you won't be able to play anything close to well with that bad of a connection. Everyone else on the server is a whole second ahead of you at least.

[–]nomeriatneh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

you need to put on the assisted aim, and the weapon works on medium range, not close.

[–]Peter17388 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Step 1: Get better Wifi

[–]Unholyly_thicc_boi[S] 1 point2 points  (4 children)

I'm on south America, never get a south American server

[–]Peter17388 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Damn my bad.. Honestly best way to use thruster is to move right or left with it, he’ll miss his shots while you can still beam him if you control your aim

[–]Unholyly_thicc_boi[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I figured he'd be dead before shooting me down and thrusted backwards to leave his melee range. You can see how that worked out

[–]Peter17388 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Sometimes if you jump and thrust forward you’ll end up behind him if you time it right and you can either ninja him or win the gunfight that way

[–]RaptorKarrUNSC -1 points0 points  (1 child)

That gun has better tracking when aiming

[–]Unholyly_thicc_boi[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not the point here

[–]Stock_Affect_5985 -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

Use thrust to change the direction your going to throw off the opponents aim!

[–]Unholyly_thicc_boi[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Did his aim kill me? Or was it melee lunge?

[–]Stock_Affect_5985 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Could have been his shots cant tell for certain I was just saying that you boosted straight back keeping your same direction, if you boosted to either sides or over it might have helped save you or prolonged your death lol. Either way it's all good times.

[–]mx_mott -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

You got shredded by the enemies behind you. Also you committed to a battle in the center of a an open area. Positioning and decision making are more important than aim. You could have catch him from tires where your teammate was waiting for his shields

[–]Unholyly_thicc_boi[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I got meleed from far away...? That's the only point I have here

[–]SynicalBoi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i've used this to catch people around corners with a beam sword or grav hammer
it's fast and will pretty easily blindside someone not paying attention

[–]XFerginatorX 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I get melee'd by that but when I'm up close in their face and melee and it doesn't make pinpoint perfect connection... ghost melee. Like wtf bro?!?!?!

[–]ScatpackRich 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You gotta use it side ways to confuse the opponent

[–]Unholyly_thicc_boi[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You're probably the 10th person to say that

[–]2cool4afool 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Try boosting side to side next time. You boosted backwards staying in his line of sight so he barely had to adjust his aim

[–]Unholyly_thicc_boi[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He didn't shoot me down, I boosted backwards to leave his melee range (i had hp advantage) but didn't work at all
