In Response To: Re: Banshee Launch Funtage (Rockslider)

: You don't have to keep the trigger down to keep the checkpoint delayed. The
: thing which is delaying the checkpoint is the presence of active ordnance
: (see my checkpoint delaying page). Thus you can fire, wait as it flies
: through the air, then fire again. I often use a fuel rod shot because
: it'll spend longer in flight, so I can wait longer before the next shot is
: needed.

Right, I knew that. That's the reason why you can't get a checkpoint with your Elite/Hunter/Grunt Fireworks tagged and ready to launch; the grenades and needles count as active ordnance, and thus the game will refuse to grant you the checkpoint. But even so, it would be very tedious to continue doing that for 30 minutes straight.

: Of course, you can just keep the plasma trigger down if you want (and in
: confined spaces that's the practical thing to do), but it'll be way
: noisier, and if you've got vibration feedback turned on, your controller's
: going to be doing a lot of shaking.

Unless you're playing Halo PC like I am. Then you can probably just set a rock on top of your firing key (or mouse, as I use), leave, come back 30 minutes later, pull off the rock, and see if the checkpoint is granted. ;)
