Question "out of bounds"


Haven't seen this discussed in the last 4 pages.

Dunno about you guys, but I'm bummed out at the "out of bounds" warning and then 10 second respawn timer past the border... My outfit usually did wide oceanic turns around enemy lines, this definitely would affect, I mean... Hamma was still on land when he got the display. It just seems like such a shitty addition, way too "call of planetfield"

The games not done yet so chill out man. I'm sure that they'll be using ocean/water as a border

The almighty dev team has heard our laments. Higgs said in the most recent AGN video that they plan to move the out of bounds further from the shore.

Nice that's sounds great. I have noticed they seem to be listening to a lot of complaints an making changes. TTK looks longer than it was at E3. And stuff like this makes me really excited.

Yeah I honestly hope they fix that, artificial barriers like that just have no place imo. They first said they put it in to prevent people from idling over the ocean, who would even do that? And why?


Removing it is absolutely necessary... there are a lot of outfits that go around enemy lines, and need that area to fly in.

They said time and time again that those borders are temporary and will be removed.

Quick replies! I too hope they come up with a great solution. Driving atvs from one side of the map to the other was just one of those things. It must return! lol.

As long as if you're on the edge of the out of bounds you are out of the enemys LOS allowing you to flank i will be happy.

Re: "out of bounds"


Does anyone remember that Halo 3 map, the snowy one, that had automatic turrets that would start shooting you down if you went too far out of the map? I think there was also a desert one where the ground started exploding (due to mines or something). I would love to see out of bounds replaced with that, far off the shore of course.

Would probably make most sense to just have you be out of the power transmission range so your vehicles engines just start to shut off, and if you don't turn back you take a swim.

Re: "out of bounds"


As of right now the out of bounds can't be taken one way or the other since they don't have the whole map active.

But when they do, I suspect there will be some irritating restrictions.

Re: "out of bounds"


Agreed, using the ocean as an alternate avenue to flank a base or what have you was a nice tactic, I'd hate to see it go.

A part of me wishes that they'd keep the out of bounds warning as subtle as it was in PS1. You get a nonchalant warning in your chatbox that you're going out of bounds that you probably wouldn't notice as you try to reach the edge of the map for the first time....then BOOM!

Nothing like a minor heart attack to teach you a lesson about going out of bounds on a map.
