Legendary Difficulty same as Thunderstorm Skull?
I'm trying to understand the difference between Legendary difficulty and using the Thunderstorm skull modifier in Halo 4.
The Thunderstorm Skull is a doozy. It promotes all enemies to the highest available level, making combat much harder.
I'm not sure I get what differs between this skull and the highest difficulty level.
Thanks in advance!
Looking at the Halo Wikia article about legendary difficulty, you can see that in all the previous games there have been effects beyond the scope of enemy level. In Halo 3 the players shield would be lowered, allies would be weaker and there seem to be more enemies. In Halo 3 the Thunderstorm Skull would improve allies as well as enemies, which is not the case with just playing on legendary difficulty.
In addition, it states that the Thunderstorm skull stacked with the legendary difficulty in Halo 3 so I would assume that it does the same for Halo 4.
