Can you fill up the Arcane Sentinel Beam at Hardlight Ammo Caches?
Yes!! You can’t drop it at all once you do that part when you fight the phantoms. Be sure not to drop it even if you have to use a weird primary weapon it is well worth it to have for Escharum, Jega, Harbinger, and the hunters.

Neat. I actually find Escharum one of the game's best done boss fights, very well balanced. Jega isn't that hard once you figure out he's very vulnerable to Grapple Stun, but he's annoying (especially because he can scripted despawn early on negating any damage you do to him).

I think they’re both pretty good. I didn’t die to Escharum on legendary because the shock rifles they have there make it easy if you work the angles. Jega killed me once because you basically just have to make one real mistake. Hardest is probably Harbinger as it should be.

Holy fuck I gave the show a chance. This last episode was unbelievably bad, 100% fuck the writers to the moon, what a waste.
 
While I'm also enjoying the show, I gotta say that I'm so far not very interested in Kwan or the Madrigal storyline. Spending the entire last episode on her made it hard to ignore how much more I enjoyed the previous episode that only featured John by comparison.

It's hard to call it Halo even considering its not canon.

Even on its own the writting is just sooooo bad, almost like Picard levels bad (althou not quite as bad). That love scene with Makee in the latest episode was so cringe.... but that's just a top of the iceberg. Kwan storyline is like the most pointless (filer) thing i ever seen in a tv series and at this point i even forgot how Chief looks like with the helmet on since he pretty much runs around without it (or suit) 99% of the screen time.

Everything added to the series by tv writers is just subpar and sadly thats like half of the show if not more. At the very least the final episode looks like it gonna be pretty decent so im kinda looking forward to it. So much wasted potential thou, i hope that season 2 (which is confirmed) will be much better.

Star Trek: Picard has been very disappointing. Each season starts out with potential, and then devolves into a train wreck I can't look away from.

The only parts I’m enjoying are the parts that have to do with Halo. I would have been ok with different if different was as good as them just doing Halo CE as the first season. Halo CE with flashbacks to flesh out MC would have been the perfect first season. Also they’re fucking snakes for censoring people like Angry Joe for reviewing the show negatively. I’m not a fan of him really but anyone should get to say whatever they want about this or any show / movie.

Picard is like 1/10 at best. No idea how this even made it to season 2. It's a total dumpster fire. I mean if their goal was to destroy Star Trek franchise then yeah mission accomplished.

Halo is not that bad, althou Kwan storyline is pretty much on par with Picard, the only redeeming quality in it is.... Soren. Action when we get it... is pretty decent, same with everything regarding the actual Halo (althou Chief running all the time without helmet kinda bothers me) but thats like half of the show time at best. I really do hope they gonna cut Kwan and all that unnecessary BS from season 2.

Halo definitely has the echos of something good, the action is pretty good for sure. Picard is unbelievably bad.
 
Only reason I'm watching Picard is to hear John de Lancie talk, which isn't many scenes...
I'm watching it strictly for character nostalgia, even though the character's aren't properly portrayed as themselves most of the time. It boggles my mind as to how many characters they're having Brent Spiner play. Character development is so poor in the show, I can't remember most of the new characters names, and I've watched all two seasons...

I'm also quite confident the writers and show runners don't understand how the Borg function at all.

(althou Chief running all the time without helmet kinda bothers me)
Keep in mind in-game, we're almost always seeing John in combat zones, hostile environments, etc. where he's immediately springing into action and thus gameplay. Halo: The Flood, the novelization for Halo: Combat Evolved, had him out of armour constantly while he was at Alpha Base and therefore out of live combat areas. It's the same concept in the show; we're constantly seeing John at Fleetcom, and other non-combat areas, so him being out-of-armour or with his helmet off makes sense. The only part where I felt it made sense for him to keep his helmet on was when he was walking around the Rubble outside of Soren's personal asteroid.

On a positive note, Halo Infinite is just as fun on my 4th playthrough. Excited to get back to it in season 2. Maybe my favorite FPS mechanically, just wish there was more content. Shoulda delayed it a year.
I'm looking forward to doing my 4th playthrough sometime this summer!

I'm well aware, that's just my personal preference not something i really hold over the showrunner vision. If that would be the only thing that bothers me with Halo tv series i wouldn't even bother writing about it, sadly it isn't. Lets hope they will finish strong with the last episode of this season.
