Halo 3 Custom gametype settings discovered

 

Some lucky few out there who are playing the Halo 3 beta have experience a network error like no other. These lucky people are finding that the network error allows the custom game menu to be available. It appears that the custom games menu option becomes available when someone tries joining up to a party host with someone how has incompatible NAT settings. It reveals a grand menu full of options, different gametypes and settings.

If you experience this, don’t freak out, you cannot play on the matches, but you can look around the menu and find some great things.

Some settings in those menus:

  • Damage resistance
  • Shield multiplier
  • Shield recharge rate
  • Immune to headshots
  • Grenade counts
  • Infinite ammo
  • Weapon pickup disabled
  • Player speed (25%, 50%, 75%, 90%, 100%, 110%, 125%, 150%, 200%, 300%)
  • Player gravity (50%, 100%, 200%)
  • Vehicle use (passenger only)
  • Motion tracker range (10m, 25m, 75m, 100m, 150m)
  • Appearance
    • Vis effects (black glow, team glow, white glow)
    • Active camo (good camo that might fool and elite, poor camo that might fool a grunt, invisible)
  • Indestructible vehicles (on, off)

Some of the lucky guys over at HushedCasket.com created this list and added that this is not a full one, but a list of the better ones they have found. They mention that each gametype has many variations and more settings for those. Also that they can set different settings for the VIP from the rest of the team and new gametypes named Tank Ball and Tank Flag.

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on
    the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly
    get irked while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
