Yeah. They might have just coded that in there for the purpose of the demo. I don't think the rocket launcher or the plasma sword will be that easy to get to. I mean at the end they showed the plasma sword hiding in that one little spot in the wall, which is where it's going to be in the final version.

I think the Warthog might be the same though and will respawn if one is destroyed. I guess we'll see when the final version comes out though.  :)

I am confident the vehicles will respawn, at least by default. Otherwise, people would just blow the vehicles up at the start. But there will probablly be options to mess with the vehicle spawning time

It just angers me with that rocket launcher how you can instantly lock on as soon as your reticle is red and you zoom in.  For hardcore players, there's no defense unless you're behind a rock.

What all new weapons have yall seen for Halo 2? I know of a few, and it didn't seem like enough to me. There's the plasma sword, the changed human weapons (no pistol, :() and I've seen a few new Covenant weapons, but not mcuh really in the way of new weapons....

Is the flamethrower any good? I never got to play Halo PC.

Well, the flamethrower goes through ammo REALLY fast, like 5 seconds of continuous firing drains the canister. It is pretty good at close range.

I like the weapons from Halo, though. If there's not a lot of new weapons in Halo 2 I'll be ok, as long as they keep something like the shotgun.  :p

I know most of the old weapons are coming back, and I knew about the new weapons mentioned here aside from the flamethrower, I was just hoping for some other weapons to go with them, but I guess you can't have everything. I'll just settle for a plasma sword and shield, dual weilding weapons, and vehicle jacking.

I believe that the only Halo 1 weapons that aren't returning are the assualt rifle and the pistol. Maybe a modified pistol that isn't uber strong, but the SMG owns the assualt rifle.

I always thought it amusing that in Halo, the pistol was arguably the best weapon in the game.  That's pretty bad.  The shottie was nice.  I only ever used the plasma pistol from the Covie arsenal after I died in Coop and had nothing else.  Plasma pistol was great for taking down elites...

Well, the pistol is the best all purpose weapon in Halo.

The pistol is extremely accurate and powerful. You can get a 3 hit kill from any range with the pistol. Granted, I'd rather have a shotgun for close range fighting, but only like close range as in inside of a Blood Gulch base. All of the other weapons in Halo have major flaws that make them unsuitable for all purpose combat.

Well, the plasma pistol is pretty good when combined with another weapon. One fully charged shot drains their shields, and the other weapon can finish them off. Needler is horrible, its needles need to explode on impact. Usually if you kill someone with a needler, they kill you as well. Plasma rifle is decent as long as you don't let it overheat.

but plasma pistol shots tend to miss other humans that are moving around because they react too quickly

True, but the Plasma Pistol is probablly the most compatable weapon in a combo. 1 shot to drain the shields, and almost any other weapon will make quick work of their remaining health.

The plasma pistol was good against the Sentinels, though. One hit kill if you charged the plasma pistol and got a good shot at the Sentinel.

BTW, silver, that is a Battle Rifle.

I still wonder how these pics got leaked. I know somebody is going to lose a job. One tester tried to leak very minor things and got fired for it.

Yeah, they're really into security when you beta test.  I tested Everquest Online Adventures: Frontiers for the PS2 and I had to agree to numerous pages of "DO NOT SHOW ANYTHING TO OTHER PEOPLE.  DO NOT TELL OTHER PEOPLE ANYTHING ABOUT THIS GAME.  WHEN THE BETA TEST IS OVER, DO NOT TELL PEOPLE ABOUT THE BETA VERSION." etc.  I guess there were things in there that they didn't want other people to know about?

My GameStop had to stop taking pre-orders for launch date Halo 2 Collector's Edition. I guess the allocated amount was already reached. We're still taking pre-orders for it, but the people who pre-order it now won't get it until Nov. 16. I'm glad I pre-ordered before the cut-off.
