Ive started playing halo 3s multiplayer again with the release of ODST and have noticed that I have been getting assasinations much easier than before and people have been assasinating me much easier aswell. Does anybody know of an update that made this happen?

You assassinated his original post! 
 
I don't really know how they would make assassinations easier, they were always one hit kills anyway

I mean that now you seem to get them when someone is sideways to you whilst before I remember it being that you have to be directly behind a fool

There haven't been any updates. If there were, everyone would have had to download something.

Maybe they make it more like the energy sword thing like you kind of lunge towards them...? I dunno how they could make it "easier" but then again, this thread was made by Pie.

lol lunging melee already exists, you're just not paying enough attention. Less distance than with the sword, but there is most definitely a melee lunge.

I know that, I meant a lunge as long as the sword.

It's not a "bug,"  really, just a hole in the design, but a melee to one of the shoulders (either right or left, not sure which--but only one) triggers and insta-kill in multiplayer. Maybe that's what you're noticing?

Hmmm, maybe thats it. Now that I think about it it does only seem to happen if I hit a certain side
