Today's update included a major overhaul for Firefight. Instead of just one round lasting 6-7 minutes, you play an entire set of 3 rounds + a bonus round. A single game can take over 20 minutes now. I was playing it earlier today and it was exhausting! But I got 4000 credits, with over 1000 credits from working towards Commendations. Seems like this might be a pretty good way to level up, even though it takes a while. Anyone else try it out? What do you think?
Holy crap, Firefight
If you ever want to run anything let me know I"m going to send you a friend request. I prefer to play with Bombers then strangers.
" I feel like this is how firefight in matchmaking should have been from the start. Maybe they started them shorter to help ease people into it? Either way, I couldn't be happier. "Firefight Matchmaking was insanely laggy for a short while after the game came out. It's probably a good thing the matches were short.
Wow! Awesome news tc. I had no idea they were changing Firefight. It needed it bad, so that type of change sounds very nice for me. I just couldn't believe they set it up to be so short and too easy as it took away the awesome tension of surviving each wave, round, and set from the ODST FF set-up, which I loved, especially the achieves for @ lvl for hitting 200k. A step in the right direction, and now Bungie needs to allow more credits to be earned when people play classic, and any custom match anyone sets up. I just don't get Bungie's obcessive concern for credits earned...it could have been managed so much better by simply extending ranks, and/or credits needed to get to each one, instead of setting daily limits and excluding custom match credit earning, in FF especially.
I played a match of Sniperfight with some friends today to get the daily challenge for Firefight kills, and it is much more fun to play a full set even if it is more time consuming. Though, my bonus round was nothing but Hunters, so that part was lame. I'm more interested in playing today's other new addition, Team Snipers, but I might jump into Firefight more often now that they've made it more tolerable.

"My first match in the new Firefight was Sniperfight too and it was blast, mostly because two people quit so I was able to get a ton of kills. I kinda wish regular Firefight had unlimited ammo like Sniperfight and Rocketfight because I like being able to blast dudes infinitely without worrying about running dry.
And yeah, the bonus round was retarded. I was in the open and every time I turned around there were literally five hunters. Got killed instantly.
After finally playing a couple of "real" Firefight gametypes, it is indeed very awesome. Never got as much as 4000 cR though, but then again never unlocked a new Commendation anyway.
I got the exact same awesome feeling playing Campaign Co-Op, it's truely awesome. I can see myself playing both Firefight and Campaign matchmaking a lot of the time, if I keep getting games that NEVER lag.
