This seems to be the fastest way to bring them down. grenades work I guess, but only the frag ones because they're easier to get down at their feet. the sticky grenades don't work very well because nine times out of ten I stick them to the wrong body parts and they end up exploding harmlessly off their shield or armor.
as they insta kill hit at you when you are close, but are slow enough that you can dodge.
Are there more ways of dying without warning in this game compared to previous in the series, or is it just me? Just off the top of my head I can think of Hunters, Wraiths, Hammer-Brutes, Grunts running with stickies, Grunts carrying plasma rockets, Elites with swords, and the various enemies that throw sticky grenades when you step behind cover. Those were all in Halo 3 too I guess, but I don't remember them being as frequent.
Edit: and turrets. those kill almost instantly too.
(i'm thinking of the hornet mission in the nightclub)
haha, I didn't kill a single Hunter there. I just dodged past them and hit whatever switch I was supposed to before running out.
