In Response To: Here's an idea ... (assassinations) (CARDO 8 ATL)

: ... to nix something that's been bugging me since Reach.

: Assassination animations are one of the additions to Halo gameplay that I
: enjoy. However, you all know that the animation comes with a cost. In the
: heat of battle, I tend to press the melee button a tad too long -
: essentially trying to hit the opponent harder with my li'l finger - okay -
: sausage finger. It's happened to the vast majority of players. You go for
: an insta-kill backsmack and accidentally go into animation that makes you
: a sitting duck when other enemies are near.

: I would very much like to have the option of pressing the melee button again
: after the assassination animation has started to 'cancel' the animation.
: This would immediately return control to the player while still getting
: the kill as if it were an insta-kill backsmack.

: Thoughts?

That would be nice actually, though I could see people having an issue with being able to "have your cake and stab it too", with getting to negate the negative consequence associated with the risk of going through the Assassination in the first place as opposed to a standard backsmack. I do understand sometimes though, finding yourself in the Assassination animation without actually having meant to do it, so maybe a hair longer on the button hold to trigger it?
