Shield and Sword: Assassination by LeviWasTaken Shield and Sword: Assassination by LeviWasTaken
"This first forest area is all about stealth. At least, if you want it to be. Grunts, Jackals, and Brutes are patrolling the paths between the massive tropical trees, and with all the foliage and dark cover, it will be easy to sneak up behind them and assassinate them.

The alien trees provide plenty of opportunity. Their large roots are erected up from the ground, creating little tunnels to sneak through. As well, their branches can be jumped or boosted to, allowing for an exciting drop-assassination on the enemy below..."

This is a sketch from the latest Shield and Sword update that has been posted, imagining through art and text what the fifth level of an imaginary Halo 4 might be like. See and read a bunch more about it here:

The Shield and Sword project began a year ago, not to accurately predict what Halo 4 will be like, but to discuss what it could be like, and present some of the gameplay and story elements that might follow in a post-Halo 3 universe.

If they came to hear me- No, they probably got marooned here too...
Ah, f*ck it.

*stab, screams, achievement noise*
Damn it, why couldn't you just keep-
"You killed my brother!"
Shit.

Oh, he's really colorful...

"Nice job, Chief, you're a real natural."
"Shut up, Cortana."

I think that's definitely one of the major shared experiences between Reach players - the time, however long, yet endlessly frustrating to get that achievement. :)

I've done that so many times! And Yet the achievement never happened! I think my game just glitched out on me when it comes to that challenge.

So now the Chief can climb trees practically, as opposed to gamers exploiting them for glitches.

Master Chief looked like he can perform the perfect assassination in Assassin Creed's style.
THAT'S SO AWESOME :happybounce:
