Should the Sword be changed?

Total votes: 12

The sword in Halo 2 is *BLAM*. I'm just going to come out and say it. It whiffs all the time and it's not even powerful compared to the beastly shotgun. Remember the good old days of Halo:CE when the sword was something to be feared? When you saw a gold elite with a sword you were like, "OH *BLAM*," and you'd start back-peddling and firing everything you had at it because it scared the hell out of you? I think the sword should be changed back to the uber killing edge (one hit kill every time no questions asked) from the first game. What do you guys think?

What game are you playing? That would completely unbalance multiplayer, I think the sword should be nerfed.

I'm actually a big supporter of taking the sword OUT of multiplayer. I too miss the days where the sword scared the living crap out of me and you had to fight for your life to survive an encounter with one. Take the noob stick out of Multplatyer please!

The sword can be replaced with the Shotgun in every situation. Take for example base defense on Relic. You use the sword right? The shotgun would work just as well (probably better because there's no chance of completely missing unless you suck ass ;) ). The sword sucks. Make it like it was in Halo:CE.

I aggree that the sword should be changed, but I think that it should reduced in damage.
Its too powerful in Halo 2. You can lunge ten feet. They need to reduce the lunge range and add a battery to it.
So what, I'm a Star Wars geek?!?

Yeah, plus why would a spartan use a sword? Guns edged out the sword in many respects a long time ago. Even though it is an energy sword.

I say keep it in campaign.....but GTfO in muti!

I have no problems with people with shotguns, but as soon as it gets to swords, everyone starts using it and just the sword, you see them coming at you, you blast them and then *whamp* you die!

Are you guys kidding? The only thing that needs to be corrected with the sword is that it needs a larger targeting range, by the time you get to the person, your already dead.

I have to agree with most of the rest of you, that the sword is too strong in multiplayer matches. Of course I also say this because I suck using it. I don't know how many times I've been killed at close range while wielding it. In fact it seems to work better from 10 - 15 feet away than it does when you're right next to someone, which doesn't make sense. I think it should definitely have a limited life like it does in campaign mode.

Sorry about my signature. I was trying to add an image and screwed something up. I can't even edit it anymore. :diecomp: Can someone help???

I say add a battery and some more variability to it, then were good.
