...is the lie you will be hearing if you do'nt put in your ipod's earbuds while your doing this weeks challenge.What would be better is listening to a play list featuring Frank Sanatra's "Mac the Knife". For while you'll wish you had a mac blast when you get to the end and stare down 3 Elites, your best weapon will be the knife on your chest.
The night started off simple enough. Bird texting me saying,"hey wait for me to do the weekly challenge". Ha, like I'm going to attempt this one without him. Annual, Deja Vu, Endure. This would become the next all nighter. We picked up Brick immidiatly then waited for our silver platered yoink machine Wheels, and the four of us set off on a mission that would take just four seconds shy of three hours and fourty minutes.
Along the way were 3 major hangups. After a few hickups we were able to sprint past the opening attacks and get into trucks... sorta.
*Note To whom ever leads the expedition. Pull all the trucks forward 5 feet at a time before you jump everyone forward. Bungie has a major glich on this map that allowed people to get into Falcons and to help prevent this they made it so your team can't walk back up past a certain point. We noticed it when trying to get into trucks.
The first time crimper was just ahead when the drop ships come. Follow the path to the right to get the ships to drop in the river bed. Thus making it much easier to set up camp abover them and noscope down.
Splatters are pointless due to the fact that you will get stund and quicky dismissed from your vehicle. Scope in with you magnum and watch where the bullets hit the dirt. Adjust from there and you'll be quickley popping the grunts in their little tiny head. If you need health, backtrack along the path. You should be able to find Moa at the bridge near the water. Hitting them will restore your shields till you get to a health pack.
Next spot will be where the Falcon drops you off. Go about it as you please but the end result will be the same, when the drop ship comes, everybody get your butts inside the base. It won't happen till the majority of jackels and Grunts are cleared out and Kat will warn you with her little message she does. The next part you'll need to get creative for. She won't close the door until a certainain percentage of covenant are dead. You may even have an Elite try to get in the room with you.We did it like wheelmen and parked Forky near the front entrance. We figured the blast would help take down an elites shield. Damn thing nearly killed us once. We were crouched in the corner for so long Wheels decided to start a wave. The only advise here is take turns peaking around the corner to get your kills. Don't inch along the back wall till you see one. They could... WILL throw a nade and you will have less distance to tavel to get out of the way.
here's a vid demonstraiting some pro driving skills.
Finally, getting passsed the last three elites. Now no lie this took us over 2 hours and twenty minutes to get passed. As I said before George is a lier. He does'nt cover you for squat. If you can knock him over the edge he does create a good diversion. But after a while that alone becomes a distraction to the mission. Pop off the grunts first. Someone should save their DMR for that part alone. Bird did a great job at this. Any left over grunts will kill you the first chance they get. So make sure the room is clear of any enemies under two and a half feet tall. Next the Sword Elite... if the Ai decides to throw them at you in order. It takes 5 plasma blasts to knock out their shields, then one headshot to finish the job. The weapons you pic up will be half full maybe. So your going to have two to three plasma blasts per gun. Theres 3 of them and four of you. Do the math, at best you'll have 12 plasma busrts between ya but you need 15 well orchistrated shots. You could go get them off the dead bodies of the grunts you sniped... good luck with that. At least one of the grunts is carrying a needler. Your best shot is to plasma burst the Sword elite and get him out of the picture. Then send 2 scouts out to "Tom and Jerry" the other elites to chase them. One person should hide along the back far wall the other jump down near shotty. as the come out move quietly into possion using the big boxes for cover. When one has a chance to assasinate the elite, move swiflty, then take cover again. The other elite will already be focussing on your friends and you'll want to get behind him too.
Notice I attempt to yoink Wheels
Let me know how yours goes. Remember be patient and have fun. Even after 3 hours your ready to rage anytime someone does something stuppid. But don't be affraid to fail. Try new things and stick with what works for ya. Its just a game. Just sure your ready. Visit the toilet and the kitchen before you begin.
