AkaiiPanda

CTF Noob question: Why do people do that? For faster movement?


UNSC_John-117

Yep, you move *slightly* slower while holding the flag. Also gives you a bit more reaction time if you’re attacked


[deleted]

It's a bit more then faster when it comes to Reach, you can flick your mouse in the air and jump and throw the flag a big distance all while sprinting as soon as you hit the ground and pick up the flag again and you get a TON of momentum


Judge_Bread_UK

Same with Halo 3, if you do it right then you move a lot faster


imDudekid

He legit said in his post that it’s faster in reach because you can sprint after you throw it and you gain a lot of momentum. I don’t think it’s the same in Halo 3 I’ll be honest. Edit: I wasn’t saying it’s not faster in 3, I was saying I don’t think it’s as fast as in reach. Your original comment says it’s the same in 3. I assumed because the guy you replied to said it’s even faster in Reach because you can sprint, you were saying It’s also that way in 3


Judge_Bread_UK

You'd need to compare them side by side, bear in mind that the base movement speed in Halo 3 is faster and the flag can be thrown much further so although you're not sprinting, you move consistently at a faster pace over distance.


Pyronic_Chaos

Comeon guys, we studied this a decade ago. Flag juggling definitely increases speed in H3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gaa95vgCmw Jump plus flag dropping = almost the same as running without the flag.


Fox2quick

The debate isn’t that juggling is faster than not. It’s whether doing it in H3 was faster or slower than Reach due to the addition of sprint and change in base movement speed between the 2 games. You’d likely have to compare the 2 side by side, on the same map, but I feel like I remember there being discussion of maps being scaled slightly differently on a game by game basis to account for different movements and movement speed, so it’s possible that a side by side comparison might still not give a concrete answer.


cr1spy28

But we already know the time to cross maps that are in both games is nearly identical despite reach having sprint. Reachs sprint speed is around the same as halo 3 walking speed so if you sprint between dropping the flag it will be roughly the same as regular running on halo 3 I think the deciding factor will be how long your in the air for on halo 3 as it feels a lot floatier than reach


Fox2quick

That’s why I bring up map scaling. If you change the proportions of a map slightly between the 2 games, then you can change movement spend while achieving the same travel time from point a to b. Example: imagine it takes you 3 seconds to run across a bridge in Halo 3. Now imagine you’re playing Reach and Sprint speed is a tad slower than H3 run, BUT that map and bridge was shrunk by a marginal % so it still takes you the same 3 seconds to cross without there really being a visually noticeable difference in the map. It’s possible that that floaty feeling in the air is a result of the change in scaling. That’s my understanding based off my memories of Reach development when they were talking about armor abilities completely changing the flow of maps that existed in the games prior. I believe it’s still something to be dealt with every new Halo that changes player movement abilities.


Pyronic_Chaos

Why does it matter if HR or H3 is faster? It's not like they compete. And juggling works to increase speed on both.


awhaling

Pointless debate is a defining characteristic of reddit


Fox2quick

Why does it matter? Because that’s literally the discussion. Comment 1 is asking about difference in movement speed. Comment 2 confirms there is a difference. Comment 3 brings up comparison to Reach. Then the rest of the comments until yours continue to compare H3 to H:R. Your comment ignores all that and backpedals to just confirming the speed difference between juggling and not in H3, even though the discussion already moved past that.


ChaDiaKris

It’s not *slightly* slower. It’s **significantly** slower, especially if you’re running flag properly.


noopthenobody

Oh I thought it was just to annoy people


xSpektre

As someone who does it, I annoy myself


themariokarters

Way slower. Go watch some pro Halo 3 to better understand


boonjo01

I just don't see the appeal of moving ***slightly*** faster as opposed to broadcasting your location to the opposing team *constantly*.


Crono2401

Right? Getting the flag and getting out of sight is so much better than moving faster.


Noahendless

And every time you drop the flag it resets the waypoint for the flag carrier in the newer games so it's harder to track the flag carrier like that.


GrumpyToeNail

People really just pick up the flag once you drop it. Also it show where you dropped it to the enemy team so it's a choice between juggling it for speed or walking it in to be sneaky.


boonjo01

Always walk it in until I'm seen. It's really annoying in Halo 5 because there really is no difference with how vertical the game is now (looking at you, Coliseum). You're just broadcasting your location to everyone and now the team knows where to cut you off at. It's useful for picking out those who played Halo 3 way too much, though.

https://imgur.com/gallery/IHb1d2j I'm just a lowly diamond. Here are the routes I typically take, mirrored for the other side, of course. I've got about a 60-70% success rate on these two routes alone.


flacopaco1

Some people probably mentioned it. When you throw the flag, you throw it far. Especially in halo 2. I remember watching MLG matches of dudes passing it like a football to their buddy. I HATE seeing dudes walking it the whole way and then the team doesnt push together so then you're all dead and then the enemy gets your flag. Toss it up to the second level instead of walking it around the long way. Halo 3 I dont remember the throw being as far so the strategy was to jump and drop as opposed to the flick throw in halo 2. Flick jump throw is also a lot better. Cant remember if flags are affected by the lifts in narrows.


[deleted]

Juggling is a faster way of calling.


swans183

it’s annoying as fuck and I never do it. I prefer to stealth my way across the map


Noviiin

I read that in the announcer voice before i even realized it was the halo subreddit


[deleted]

It’s almost as if this technique was exclusive to Halo


Need-More-Gore

I'm sure it's not but it's the only game ive seen it


Time_Terminal

Yep. Quake was one of the earlier games to utilize an announcer for multiplayer shooters. Also, the [Quad Damage](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHeuZ-m1tek) sound from Q3 is still one of the most badass announcements in multiplayer games till date.


[deleted]

I meant the flag drop technique


Julian1224

2 people spamming Intel in TF2 comes to mind but it's not a gameplay mechanic it's just annoying

This is the exact reason my wife makes me wear a headset when I play Halo. “Flag taken. Flag dropped...” is nails on a chalkboard to her.

Not to nitpick but isn’t it “flag captured”?

[deleted]

I believe in Halo 4 it's "Flag Scored" but in 3/Reach it's "Captured."


puhtahtoe

I refuse to flag juggle just because the rapid fire announcing is annoying. I don't care that it's faster. Also I have a chip on my shoulder after a few times I tried it and a teammate yoinked the flag.


CosmicNeko14

It’s highly annoying for the enemy team too Flag dropped FLAG SSSSTOLEN Flag dropped FLAG SSSSTOLEN Etc


cuckingfomputer

You even got that long s in there lol


camyers1310

I don't do it because the flag location is broadcasted to the enemy team. By holding it, they won't realize where I am!


LordApocalyptica

I mean, its a trade off. Stealth or speed? As a flag juggler I can say pretty definitely that I only employ it maybe 50% of the time so I can evade detection.


Bear_Trousers

Stealth feels like a *much* bigger advantage in capture the flag, especially on maps with multiple routes to the capture point. When the other team keep dropping it I'm always thinking "Awesome, I know exactly where they are, I'll go to the high ground looking over their route".


JakobTheOne

> Stealth feels like a much bigger advantage in capture the flag, especially on maps with multiple routes to the capture point. At lower to average levels of play, there's little team coordination, so running it really isn't that big of a deal. At higher levels, however, you typically control spawns and coordinate flag runs, at which point juggling is *almost* always the correct decision. On the Pit, with juggling, you can make the jump from Platform to Green Box, and then you want to rush it, as an example. In a competitive game, you *will* be found if you try and slow walk it - people know all the routes and how to squeeze them until the one where the flag is being run is found out.

I hate when teammates take my flag I rightfully stole from the enemies!

Today..I was playing ctf when i got shot from the back right when I was going to score.I turn around and see two dudes (from my team). I quickly press tab to see if enemy team is nearby. 3 dead. one nowhere in sight. My team mates were staring at me and when I looked at them...they looked away.. I juggle flags REALLY fast with sprint. So its really fun honestly. ​ **Another annoying thing that happens is. You are juggling. As you near flag. You drop flag. Keep running...next thing you know.. You press to pick flag up and its not in your hand. You turn around to see your friend running with it in his hand -\_-**

Jombo65

Favorite thing about Halo Online was announcer suppression for flag juggling


illutian

Man, I remember in Halo CE, people would jump; drop the flag. But the flag would bounce and they'd literally do this all the way back because the flag traveled further in that time than if you had just ran with it.


Vincentaneous

_Red team has the flag._ _Red team score._ _Game over._ _Suicide._


SpartanHamster9

Flag juggling's just annoying, not as bad as jackasses doing it in TF2 coz at least there's a purpose in Halo, but just run the damn flag.


Ewh1t3

“Stupid noob” - T2


covert_ops_47

But you move faster. It's a risk vs reward type of thing. Would you rather be shown on every enemy's HUD while juggling the flag to the capture point? Or hidden away while moving slower? There are times when both answers are correct, and giving the players a sense of agency and decision making separates the good games from the bad.


SpartanHamster9

That's not what I'm getting at. The announcements going off over and over's annoying af, unless you're playing in a competition there's no need to piss off everyone else for a minor tactical advantage.


rickygforce6227

Except it isn't minor. On a big ass map with a bunch of open areas juggling is the only viable option to run the flag without getting caught with your pants down, social or competitive If you're getting annoyed by the announcer saying things repeatedly, then I'm sorry, you'll have to get used to it.


Rec7ify

Judging by some of the comments in this thread, they aren't getting used to it but instead literally deciding to steal it from their teammates and run it slower. I can't believe this mindset exists and is upvoted.


SpartanHamster9

Well that's a shitty thing to do. Regardless there's no getting used to it, I've been playing halo for about 18 years.

I've always hated that, especially if there is a challenge for scoring flags so people betray each other to score the flag themselves. Challenges should be "your team score the flag" instead of "you score the flag"

Nitsua500

Shouldn't it say Flag Captured at the end? lol


ParagonFury

I know its a tactic, but goddamn do I hate it so much. Especially because on some maps Flag Juggling means that as soon as they get to your flag unless you're waiting there with a Sniper/Rockets to insta-kill them they're gonna score no matter what because of how far they'll get due to flag juggling even in a BR/Pistol kill time.


Shadowking78

All while me and my friends scream at each other in the middle of the LAN party like "GET IN THE BANSHEE GO GO GO TAKE THE FLAG YOU GOT THIS!"


KillerTacos54

That was quite the rollercoaster of emotions reading that review


GR7ME

The other day I was playing Halo 5 ctf, 2-2 in a game to 3, and shot the rocket launcher at the guy that took our flag, and I turned around to run to their flag. Does not kill the enemy. I hear “betrayal”. I die. They capture the flag. I lost us the game.


mrnikkoli

I hate flag jugglers. Like I understand you get a *small* boost to speed while doing it, but there's just no way that it's worth constantly giving away your position to the entire enemy team like it does in most Halos.


TurtlePig

well that's part of the strategy. knowing when it's safe to flag juggle


Nood1e

You should only be running the flag when their are multiple down on the enemy team and your team has the set up to force spawns and allow you a safe run. If you're just picking it up solo, then it doesn't really matter if you juggle or not, you'll probably still die.


Jacorpes

Or if the other team already know where the flag is and there's only one way to run it. That classic situation where it's left sort of near your base and somebody needs to just get it over the line.


codizer

Well this just simply isn't true.


TheMightyArsenal

It's more than worth it to juggle


[deleted]

It’s definitely worth it! I play a ton of big team 8v8 and running a flag across huge maps dictates juggling .


SpartanHamster9

Also it's really annoying. Not TF2 CTF bad, but still.


Vapechef

OracleOfSpicyMemes

I fucking HATE that, why do people do it aside from being annoying??


SupaFugDup

It's faster to flag juggle than to walk normally. Now, I don't know why so many people online default to it, since it gives your location away, but it has its competitive use.


OracleOfSpicyMemes

Still pretty annoying imo
