Halo 4 multiplayer guide

Solace
 

Somewhat like Meltdown and Halo 3’s Narrows, Solace offers asymmetrical gameplay apart from vehicular combat. The map will likely become folks’ favourite Capture the Flag map as it offers above ground support with below escape patterns. The map itself is described as a testament to the Forerunner’s power and features a beautiful centrepiece light that extends far above the map’s containment. 

Power Weapons

Energy Sword
The energy sword is located in the middle of the map, underground. It rests directly beside the centrepiece light we just alluded to.

Incineration Cannon
The incineration cannon also rests in the middle of the map underground. It’s only a few short steps away from the energy sword and is also beside the centrepiece light.

Other Weapons

Sniper Rifle x 2
Grenades
Random Drop Weapons

Gameplay Tips

There will undoubtedly be a number of players quickly rushing below to obtain the energy sword and incineration cannon, so lobbing grenades in that general direction might not be such a bad idea. Otherwise, be prepared for quick battles above, as you weave in and out of cover. If you’re team has a sniper in one of the towers, you shouldn’t need to worry about getting sniped from above, but if not, be on the look out for enemy presence in that area. We also found that hugging the edges of the maps gave us success, because we could generally see opponents crossing the centre, and others popping up from beneath the map.

    That's very good and well Mr. Steinlage, but you still haven't thought the most important factor of Halo: how to present ourselves to the online community. What racist comments do I use to show off my superiority? How should I phrase my death threats if somebody gets a lucky shot on me? How long should I stalk their accounts? And what is the best way to quickly teabag a downed player whilst making homophobic remarks without a sense of irony?

    You know, I probably should have included that! I personally like the "I'M GOING TO HACK YOUR ACCOUNT" threats that I regularly receive!

    I think your friend is lying to you. I'd keep an eye on your wallet, if I were you.

    Hello common984 It's nice to see such good manners on a message board so I'll go easy on you. This is http://www.gamesradar.com, not http://www.shun-happymall.com. I know this can be confusing if you are new to the internet but there are some helpful hints. The address bar (that white one at the top of your screen) should tell you where you are as well the word "GamesRadar" printed pretty much everywhere. Another hint is what the website is presenting. In this case it's games, games, GAMES! Not suspicious bargins, missed deliveries, EMPTY BANK ACCOUNTS! That would be the website you erroreously welcomed us to. I Know you meant http://www.gamesradar.com but I have to stress this. We don't want users accidently going to that website. It's full of spyware and dubious trading. Be careful, yourself. Anyways, welcome to http://www.gamesradar.com and thank you for being so friendly.

    "Though Adrift is similar is scope to Abandon" I believe you mean "similar in scope"
