I took a break from Halo 2 Legendary for a while because of IRL stuff, but today I decided to give Regret a go. It actually wasn't that bad. I was able to bring two Marines from the start of the level to the fight against Regret because I armed them with snipers and they helped a ton. I was able to clear it in about 40-45 minutes, which I think is good for what I consider to be the second hardest level in H2. I am terrified for Gravemind though.

Hmmm. you okay bud?
In contrast to the first two games, I will be making only one update for Halo 3's multiplayer, as I need to start ODST soon if I want to finish the games before Infinite. But anyway, let's jump right in.
First off, I really liked the maps in Halo 3. Some of the ones with vehicles were a little big and open, making it hard to navigate without something to ride in, but they were still fine.
The sandbox for Halo 3 is amazing. The Battle Rifle is very similar to Halo 2, and is still such an amazing weapon. However, I do, ever so slightly, prefer the H2BR. But overall, Halo 3 has the best sandbox. There's such a diverse set of weapons and none feel too underpowered or overpowered.
Then there's equipment, which is of course a new part of Halo multiplayer, and it's fantastic. There are just SO MANY different ones, some that I never even got a chance to use in the campaign, so I was introduced to them for the first time here. And I'm also really starting to see the similarities between Halo: Infinite and Halo 3. Of course, Infinite has the sprint, slide, and clamber functionalities, but I feel like those are the biggest differences. The addition of equipment in Infinite has really made it feel like a spiritual reboot of CE and 3 combined. But anyways, back to Halo 3.
I played through a bunch of different game modes as well, such as Capture the Flag and Oddball. They basically played out the same way as they did in Halo 2, meaning they were very fun of course. I also played Snipers, which is definitely one of my favorite game modes, and Swat, which is definitely NOT a personal favorite of mine. I think my reaction time is just a bit too slow, because I always seem to get shot first, but in some games I still did well. It's a cool mode, I just prefer others.
Overall, I can definitely see why this is often considered to be the best multiplayer ever. It has everything you could really ask for. Basically an upgraded version of H2 multiplayer. It's definitely my favorite, at least so far.
That's pretty much it, but one last thing I wanted to point out is the Halo 3 Magnum. There have of course been arguments as to if this is better or worse than the Halo 2 Pistol, but for me, it's not even a competition. The Magnum is one of the worst weapons in the game, don't get me wrong, but as long as you can hit your five headshots consistently, which isn't that hard to do, since the aim assist is strong, you'll be fine. It's only problem is its slow time to kill. Other than that, it's actually a decent weapon. Meanwhile, the H2 Pistol feels like a squirt gun that somehow does literally no damage lol. I don't know if I've even gotten a single kill with it, ever. But that's just my opinion, and we all have different ones.
Thanks for reading. Like I said, this is the only H3 multiplayer update I'll be making. You may or may not see my first Halo 3: ODST update by the end of the day. I'm incredibly excited to jump into a new beginning!

So if the UNSC had army dogs, could the dogs get augmented into Spartan dogs? I would love to imagine them chewing through grunts and getting into dog fights with promethian crawlers…
