Never played H2 or ODST. But here it goes, from easiest to hardest. (Based on Legendary observations)

 

Halo 4 - Retarded enemy AI, the enemies never focus fire or continuously fire, they're slow-moving, and there's ammo EVERYWHERE. Plus the aim assist. The range you're at doesn't matter very much when your bullets are magnetic. Also, Prometheans are so predictable, whenever they sword rush me I've already moved three feet away from their attack. I mean, it only happens when they've been hit a lot, and most of the time, they sort of bow and twist to the right before they rush you.

 

Halo CE - The game is hard the first time on each difficulty. Well, haven't tried Easy ever, but whatever. But after that it's not very hard. Sure, the hitboxes were an embarrassment, and the weapon selection was limited, but overall it isn't that hard. But there were moments that were frustrating, like BANSHEES or the huge number of SpecOps Elites on Keyes. The Library, though, I don't understand. It's no harder than the average CE level. It's just longer.

 

Halo 3 - This one's really fun. But the enemy AI's huge improvements and an entire host of new ways to die make it hard regardless. Anything involving Wraiths (Not AA) was extremely frustrating, and the enemies could shoot through your vehicle plating with almost no damage dampening. And yet the vehicles themselves were almost indestructible.

 

Halo Reach - The first level of Halo 3 is harder than the first level of Halo Reach, but take it any further than that and Reach is harder. Invincible Hunters, hordes of smart enemies with high health, lots of well-placed explosions, and the fact that if you step anywhere you will be met with focused and continuous fire. Enemies could dual-wield, but you couldn't. And the Sabre flight...if you're shot, get out of the way immediately. Unlike how you can fight for a second or two while being shot on foot, if you have a Seraph on your tail and wait even a second before moving out of the way, you will already be dead when you reach the cover.

 

Thankfully, Halo Reach is so dynamic and fun that I enjoy all of that.

Combat Evolved, easily.

 

First off it has the health, so right away most of the game you are easier to kill than in any other one as the shield and health bar is less health than infinite health. Many levels are limited in guns and they disappear rather quickly, doesn't make for a good combo. The flood can't be destroyed the first time, and will always revive.

 

The only way Halo 2 is harder is in Co-Op because of that stupid one man dies you both die system. Other than that Halo 2 fixed the flaws that made Combat Evolved difficult.

 

If I had to order them personally it would go.

 

1. Combat Evolved

2. Halo 2

3. ODST

4. Halo 3

5. Halo Reach

6. Halo 4

 

A lot of people think Reach is hard, but you have to play it differently. Once you understand it is quite easy on legendary. I think I beat it in 10 hours.

Reach,
2,
3,
ODST,
Wars,
CE
4

Hardest-easiest. Concussion rifles are pretty much two shot kills on reach. Though some aspects were easier than others while a lot were harder. Mainly the NOBLE firefights, where your Spartans can do all the work while you stand back and pick off the occasional jackal.

4 is incredibly easy. Dare I say easier than NORMAL?

I say Halo 4 with Reach and ODST close behind. I'm talking ALONE on Legendary and not co-op.

 

Every time you would be near to killing an Elite, it'll run into cover which is really annoying. The Crawler Snipers and Knight Lancers are waaay too accurate and the checkpoint system is a little flawed with it sending you a little too far back if you die. If there were Banshees in the area you'd have to waste all you're ammo just to take them out, and no there is not allot of ammo laying around. Also I think on the mission which puts you at the top of an elevator at the beginning with Banshees flying around (I can't remember the mission name), the Banshees continue to respawn no matter how many times you blow them up. Plus the weapons despawn too quickly. I would say that the weapons shouldn't despawn alltogether.

 

Though the campaign was really hard, I managed to beat it and get my precious Lone Wolf Legend achievement and MK. VI armor. It was highly entertaining to play :)

After watching a few vids, I like to think that the Jackals started laughing maniacally after the Focus Rifle was decommissioned and replaced with the Beam Rifle.

I do t understand why they would make a sniper that isn't a one-shot kill. (The Covenant, not Bungie.)


It was pretty cool for glassing beams though.

Yeah, I'm stuck on the Keyes level. One bar of health, limited ammo, and a three story drop through the hanger bay. That room alone has proven the greatest of frustrations. There's always one level in each game, maybe two levels, that are the most aggravating in the entire game. But a lot of it seems to be a health/ammo issue. Kinda hard to punch your way through invincible enemies with no ammo or health. :|

Is that where you must escape?

If I remember right, you can jump and hit the tip of the banshee to negate the fall damage.

Or just jump down all of the levels because the second level juts out in the middle.

Easier to use, and still deadly. A weapon that can be sprayed nonstop at an enemy accurately across long ranges is really useful. If your aim is good, it won't overheat before the enemy dies.

 

I prefer the Focus Rifle over the Beam Rifle because the Beam Rifle has an identical function to the Sniper Rifle, but has inferior aim. But this way, we get two unique weapons.

Halo 2's higher-rank Elites and Jackal snipers were a royal pain in the butt, but apart from that its campaign was pretty easy. I'm going to have to say Halo: Reach; probably the single most frustrating campaign I have ever played.

I find Reach's campaign easy.

To the point where I can complete most missions without a death.

Good to know I'm not the only person who finds it very easy. DMR owns all lesser aliens, and plasma pistol plus DMR owns everything else.

Problem is the DMR isn't found in most of the game so a strategy Halo games never use comes to play. Burst fire the Assault Rifle and it basically kills everything.

I've been doing that since the beta.
