Why did the Covenant refer to him as "demon"?
Rip and Tear
>>454600151Chief canonically has never been injured in a firefight. He was based as fuck
>>454600104All Spartans were referred to as "Demons" because of the unbelievable covenant casualty rate produced by them, hundreds of Elites wasted in rapid succession by one single human. John however was specially named "The Demon" because he destroyed the Halo ring. An entire Covenant Armada with crew couldn't stop and kill him.
>>454600104Because he slaughtered their asses for three games along wth destroying a planet-size Halo ring.
Halo had such fucking fantastic lore. What happened with Destiny and Halo 4/5?
>>454600360Why was John so much better than the other spartans?
>>454600782He wasn't, he's just lucky. That's it.
>>454600782Because he's Space Jesus and you.>>454600935The games say otherwise.
Tbh I feel bad for the Sangheli. They had there entire planet slaughtered and were sent into war with us because of lies told to them by the prophets. At least the humans made peace with them in the end.
>>454601139That doesn't erase the atrocities those uglies committed, vengance will come for them soon.
>>454601139Elites = white aryansProphets = jewsBrutes = swarthy third worlders
>>454600104Because Bungie writing is hoseshit and the Halo CE plot was a complete fluke. The whole Halo universe was doomed from the very moment Halo 2 came out.
>>454602786This is the true reason.
>>454600935This. Cortana or Halley said something like, "You aren't the strongest or the smartest Spartan, but you have something the other Spartans don't have: luck."
>>454600782>>454600935According to the whole lore, John was second best to all the elite specialists in the entire class, AND was the luckiest of them all.
Basically he was the "best" Spartan. "Not the strongest, or the smartest, or the fastest." But he was smarter than the strongest, stronger than the fastest, and faster than the smartest. Spartans like Fred, Linda, Kelly and B-312 were all perfect at one thing but lacking in other areas.Also according to Halo 3, he has an unquantifiable quality that gives him his 100% success rate which Bungie called Luck and 343 called "you specifically are a special reclaimer above the other reclaimers here have a special cipher and go be the chosen one"
>>454605079In 343's lore it's still luck, stop making shit up Reachnigger.
>>454603272So that's what happens when you max Luck atribute
>>454600104Because they respected him.
Bumping for actual discussion of video games
>>454600360>hundreds of Elites wasted in rapid succession by one single humanum that's not how it works, canonically elites didn't fight humans directly until right around Reach near the end of the war. spartans were fighting grunts, jackals, and brutes the whole time. and one single elite almost killed john in the book
>>454606359Bro have you played 4. The librarian literally, specifically, declares 117 to be some kind of special reclaimer who's got Forerunner DNA
>>454609175They go retconned years ago.
>>454602570So then what are humans? Asians?
>>454600104basically he was an infidel to their religion and cause sacrilege to their holiest of places the halo rings
>>454609470The Librarian wanted a human at Chief's level not him specifically, he's just that lucky to meet her before anyone else, stop making up bullshit this was confirmed by 343, his Luck is universal, not Forerunner bullshit.
>>454609175That has been retconned ages ago buddy. Considering reading the updated fall of reach lol
>liking a game where the main character has an energy shield to make up for the fact that his multi-billion dollar state of the art armored suit can't even stop handgun rounds
>>454601029>The games say otherwise.It literally doesn't. He's entirely average when it comes to Spartan II's. There are other Spartan II's that are faster than him, stronger, better shooters, and better in unarmed combat. He's just got luck on his side.
>>454609831>"An insult to be sure, but one with a modicum of respect."t. Thel
>>454600689>what happened with Destiny and Halo 4/5?Activision/343i respectively as well as much of the original Bungie devs weren't there to pitch in. No Marty O'Donell. Too may fuck ups. Bungie is a ghost of its past self and 343i diverted from what made Halo great in hopes of getting some of that CoD money.
>>454600360>hundreds of Elites wasted in rapid succession by one single human.Umm but aren't Elites and Brutes equally as strong and fast as an SII?
>>454609881He's the best all-rounder, there's a reason he was able to end the war, stop the Flood, meet the Librarian, and stop the Didact all mixed in with his luck, the other Spartans couldn't do what he did because they are really good in ONE area but not all like he is while also not having his luck.
>>454610091i still have ptsd from how awful halo 4 mp was
Where’s my fucking Pathways Into Darkness sequel Bungie
>>454607317More like they feared him. Elites are the only species that had respect for warriors
>>454610276Elites yes, brutes no. Elites are smart, which is 60% of the reason why they're great warriors
>>454610701Brutes seemed to fear yet have respect for Chief too. In Halo 3, a Chieftain challenges you in a one on one battle.
>>454600782>>454600935>>454601029Because he's the protagonist....
Pilots from titanfall 2 are closer to book Spartans than depicted in HaloHopefully infinity took some notes
>>454600104Why did the prophets start a completely unnecessary genocide against the Elites right in the middle of a war with humanity and Flood? Seemed idiotic to throw the most powerful race out of the Covenant.
>>454610276No, that was only book canon, game canon Master Chief and Spartans IIs are above all except Forerunner Warrior-Servants.
>>454601029>The games say otherwise.Right from Halo 3's intro, you stupid faggot>They let me pick. Did I ever tell you that? Choose whichever Spartan I wanted.>You know me. I did my research. Watched as you became the soldier we needed you to be. Like the others, you were strong and swift and brave. A natural leader.>But you had something they didn't. Something no one saw...but me.>Can you guess? Luck,>Was I wrong?
>>454611034perhaps they thought the brutes were more effective since tartarus always took credit for the arbiters work
>>454600104cuz he blewd up the holy cockring
>>454611034The brutes are literally dumb rhino-apes that do what they're told. The elites began asking too many questions and Truth wanted to do a power grab that would make him the sole hierarch of the covenant.
>>454611257>Ignore a straight quote from fucking Cortana out of the fucking game>But my headcanon explanation is fact!
>>454611460>ignoring the fact that Chief is second best at everything, AT EVERYTHING
>Tfw you knows too much, get everyone you loved killed, get your people to hate you, get killed at the end.
>>454611543Because he's LUCKY, he's no more capable than every other Spartan IIHoly shit, just stop
>>454610091That's puzzling to me, they had been planning the destiny lore and universe years before it even started development. They probably changed a ton of shit during dev time.
>>454611586The Arbiter is based as fuck and a badass. "Asshole, you must be silenced"
>>454611627Didn't all of their talent quit? I'm not familiar with who does what at Bungie, but I think Marty O'Donnel was the bick dick writer and composer, correct?
>>454611959Marty only wrote their music. Activision didnt like their story snd the guy who wrote it probably blew his head off because he had to rewrite everything in a few months.
here's another question why was he called the reclaimer, while the prophets are called meddlers? what connection does the cheif have to the forerunners?
>>454612216I believe that, the ordeal fucked with their heads enough that they went on and sold themselves to the fucking chinese.
>>454611959Marty got fired by Bungie probably because Activision didn't like him using up their money and he sued them for wrongful termination and with holding pay.
>>454611613It wasn't mother fucker, it was skill, he's the second best at everything while being lucky making him the best, stay mad.
>>454612313Humans were considered to be the reclaimers of the Forerunner tech by the Oracles.
https://youtu.be/R2Y9VR_Jg9k?t=987>yfw you boot it up for the first time on pc
>>454612313He's the culmination of a thousand lifetime of planning.
>>454611034>Hey bro the Elites are about to figure out that what we are peddling is bullshit>genocide them, quick, replace them with gibbering apes
>>454611940the arbiter in pic related isn't the same arbiter tho, it's another one, the first arbiter to betray the covenants to the point the title was now a mark of shame. He's a protag of one of the shorts from halo legends, it's canon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTpzs-wMD3w
>>454612504I'm trying to save my hype, I'll keep from listening to the music and watching the trailers until that game is out on the PC MCC.
>>454612440why though >>454612523also why
>>454600104>The Covenant is a religion based society>Master Chief, the last Spartan and obviously capable of much more than any human, is seemingly the most dangerous being and their biggest threat>Surprised he's called a "demon"
>>454612728Because either Humanity was consciously chosen by the Forerunners to be the heirs of all their shit, or Humanity was subconsciously chosen by the Forerunners to be the heirs of all their shit.
>annihilates 70% of your raceHeh, nothing personal kid
Call me what you will, but MCC on PC is the most excited I've been about vidya in a long fucking time.
>>454612614I thought the mark of shame was a mark of shame.
>>454612839fair enough i guess but damn you would never know just playing the games
>>454613057WE'RE COMIN HOME
>>454611586>get killed at the end.W-What? Arbiter is still alive at the end of Halo 5? Did 343 kill him off in a book like they did with the Rookie?
>>454612504Lads, do we really deserve every great Halo (not 4 obviously) on PC? I feel like were not worthy
>>454613120Not really, it's made clear when all of the Forerunner AIs keep calling humans reclaimers.
>>454613057We're going home lads...
>>454612523What are you talking about, anon?
>>454613187Yes we fucking do, MS killing Halo Online was a debt that needed to be repaid. Unfortunately we won't have a forge as legit as HO or be able to host our own servers but I'll forgive it for a larger population
>>454613057>>454613121Thoroughly agree. I haven't been this excited about video games since I was a little ass kid.
>>454600104no john, you are the demon
>>454613057It’s coming home lads
>>454612728The librarian imposed a geas on the humans she saved on earth that would eventually lead to the creation of John 117.
>>454613183not the same arbiter anon, there's multiple of them. the one in halo wars also was a different one. >>454613090the mark of shame wasn't a mark of shame at first: being an arbiter was you being the leader of the elites before this one arbiter who rebelled.
Did the luck line in Halo 3 come from Fall of Reach?
>>454613729>being an arbiter was you being the leader of the elitesThat's good, can you imagine a grunt having to wear that armor?
>>454612728Also to add to >>454613693 the Librarian also encoded how to use forerunner tech in all humans and also make all humans want to fuck her.
>>454613693>>454613874That's really stupid, who approved this?
>>454613303What multiplayer do you think you lads will be playing the most? My guess is 3, but I prefer Reach :^)
>>454600104Because he destroys several of their Holy relics and kills their prophets?
>>454614031I'll spread it even across everything but 4 lol, I assume one will reign supreme based on whatever has the most competent forge though. Reach big team and Invasion are some good ass shit, loved paradisio
>>454600782Jack-of-all-trades and LUCK343 nu-canon pulled some bullshit how he's a special Chosen One, but you can disregard that space magic midichlorian bs
>>454613874>and also make all humans want to fuck her.This.
>>454606359343i made it so Master Chief literally is the chosen one you dumbass
>>454613874the librarian is ugly as fuck anon
they're going to have to remove 4 shots from the sniper spawns or it's going to reign hell on PC
>>454614367No she <<<literally>>> canonically made it so all humans love her and see her features as the ideal female form.
>>454605079>>454606359>Also according to Halo 3, he has an unquantifiable quality that gives him his 100% success rate which Bungie called Luck and 343 called "you specifically are a special reclaimer above the other reclaimers here have a special cipher and go be the chosen one"It's not like there is a big difference
>>454614176All the population will be concentrated in 3/Reach because custom games. CE will be pretty much dead in comparison after everyone realizes it's only fun with friends.
>>454614507There's not, he's still lucky and Space Jesus.
>>454600782Because he's a forerunner rapebaby
>>454614360He was always that, to begin with, lore junky.
>>454612440HA WRONG343i retconned it so that humans are just as old as forerunners and there was an even OLDER civilization known as the precursors and they wanted to give this thing called the mantle to the humans and the forerunners got upset about it. Oh yeah the flood was also dog food that the humans used, it infected some forerunner planets, humans burnt them, forerunners got mad, some huge war, humans get devolved or some shit I donno 343i canon is fucking stupid
never knew arbiter was in a fighting game https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixbHxrTXzFc
>>454605079>"you specifically are a special reclaimer above the other reclaimers here have a special cipher and go be the chosen one"You dense motherfucker, she never said or implied that.
Here's hoping the game will be surprise released on sunday.
nice to know that since mcc is coming i never have to pay attention to e3 ever again
>>454614762Whatever, retard, everyone knows 343i lore is not canon.
>>454614391it's fine on PCt. eldewrito
>>454614212He was always that though.
>>454614762the humans before the forerunners were all killed tho, the other humans were cloned.
>>454614780He is and his theme is sick: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K577pk499Sw
>>454614856hey you're responding to me and I agree 343i lore is fucking stupid
>>454614762>Oh yeah the flood was also dog food that the humans usedThis, 343 totally destroyed all the origins of everything.
>>454614813Nah, 343 has an obsession with announcing things/patches/updates way ahead of their release so don't get your hopes up. Best case scenario would be getting a solid release date.>>454614856How autistic do you have be to live in your own little canon bubble lmao.
>>454614889>the humans before the forerunners were all killed thoNo they were just devolved into cavemen. Fun fact, 343 guilty spark is one of these cavemen
>>454614760The only thing that made Chief special was his luck (read: the player controlling him).Having him be some weird fucking chosen one completely destroys his character but honestly that's nothing new for 343i after they ruined every single character in Halo with their books and games
>>454605079Fred was an all-rounder too though.
>>454614875Not really. All that was hinted from 1-3 was that he was of Forerunner descent through Spark's ramblings and how Mendicant Bias refers to him in terminals.Since 343 decided Forerunners aren't ancestors to humans, they needed to link it in some way and boom, we got some genetic coding for being a badass mumbo jumbo tossed it.
>>454615103Enough to fuck your mom, kiddo.
>>454614945You only hate it because it exists, not because it's objectively bad lore (which is not).
>tfw I was looking forward to 5's story because we finally get to see Blue Team operating as a group>story is garbage and you only play as Blue Team for 3 missionsI just want Fred Linda and Kelly to not get thrown to the wayside again, but that will almost certainly be happening in Infinite.
>>454600104I don't think I've ever felt anticipation the way I did when the Halo 3 trailers started dropping.
>>454615103in my mind the chief is still floating in that ship and that halo 4 never happened
>>454615250>the precursors design a test for the living creature's mettle>the test starts because the ancient humans start using flood spores as dog food No it's pretty fucking retarded lore
>>454615278The Halo 3 reveal trailer is still up there for one of the best of all time.
>>454615278Halo 3 is the only game to have a massive marketing campaign and actually turn out BETTER than what everybody expected
>>454615171>Having him be some weird fucking chosen oneHe's not, that's just a low IQ interpretation of the Librarian's words that keeps being parroted in these threads. When she said "You are the culmination of a thousand lifetimes of planning", she didn't mean it in the literal sense of: "Oh there shall one day be a green Master Chief guy and her blue companion Cortana that will save the universe!". It was actually about her injecting the humans DNA and evolution potential to one day reach that point.
>>454615732>guys this fucking stupid as shit story is actually really good but you have to be smart to understand it!
>>454615460Refer again to the same post you quoted.
>>454615732>Oh there shall one day be a green Master Chief guy and her blue companion Cortana that will save the universeBut it's explicitly state in the books that chief has the gene seed of the Didact's "son", and that the Librarian gave it to him.
I spent hundreds of hours fucking with the game physics and going OoB. I loved lurking on a forum dedicated to that stuff called High Impact Halo. Do superbounces and the lot still work in the MCC or did they neuter the fun?
>>454615732>no you see you aren't the predestined chosen one that we built specifically to exist, you're just the predestined chosen one who our genetic engineering guaranteed to one day exist at some unspecified point in the future (which is apparently now)>guys that's totally differentNo
>>454615961Nice reading comprehension retard, no wonder you didn't get it in the first place. First of all i didn't say it was good and second, i didn't say you need to understand it either, only that you have to be really low IQ to not get it.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OlNKXyb6Og&tCuz he stronger then Goku
>>454601029cortana literally says at the start of 3 what he had that everyone else didn't, because he was never the strongest and fastest. but he always seemed to have luck on his side
>>454600782I think Kurt was deemed to be just as good as John.
>>454616459Read the books, I'm not going to re-read them, they're fucking garbage.
>>454600782>John so much better than the other spartans*ahem*FUCK 117 and FUCK spartan 2's
>>454616619So you got no evidence, got it. John is also a converted muslim btw (it's in the books, look it up).
>>454616661>dies and gets dabbed on by Elites
>>454616661At least you didn't post any of the IVs.Because if you did, I would get you.
>>454617104I gave you the source, which jsut so happens to be canon lore. If you're not willing to educate yourself about the lore how do you have any right to dictate what is canon and what is not. Lazy asshole
>>454616275There's a big difference between giving a man a fish and teaching him how to fish.
>>454617135I'd like to see your precious captain king survive that many elites.
>>454617282>educate yourself>find the evidence for meYeah i'm not falling for the bait.
>>454617336But Master Chief is literally "given a fish" in Halo 4 by the Librarian which "makes him immune to the super weapon that the man antagonist just got". That's lazy as fuck storytelling.
>>454617454>I'm not going to believe you unless you read a 1200 page three book series to me
>>454617562I wish we could all forget 343i's lore and pretend it never happened.
>>454617562Ah the anti-composer shield thingy is a completely different subject.
Because they think of their campaign as a religious holy journey and Master Chief is effectively trying to stop and destroy their efforts.Opposition to holy is obviously demonic.
>>454617357>Fucked them, their holy ring and their leadership in the ass so hard, they became his friends
>>454617685Not him but burden of proof is on you, pal. You made the assertion. Maybe just find a wiki source instead of pretending you need to re-read a book.
>>454617721Me too but that's not how real life works kiddo, it's canon until 343 retcons/reboots it.
>>454617830>never had to face more than 4 or 5 at a time.Hyper lethal vector my ass, he was just lucky.
>>454617721See the problem is the so desperately tried to keep the old lore intact while hijacking the narrative. If they had erased the old lore entirely it would be much easier for most people to reject it. >>454617780>Ah the anti-composer shield thingy is a completely different subject.That's one of the many things they're talkign about when they talk about genetic engineering. Chief was the one given the "anti-composer shield thing" in his DNA.
>>454617865>this fanfiction is canon until the fanfiction author says it isn'tbig think there lad
>>454617562The way i read it is this. The forerunners devolved humans to the way they are now after they lost the war. The composer was made to turn these unevolved humans into robots. The librarian planned for humans to eventually return to their potential, but the didact got loose and the librarian advanced John to the point where the composer couldn't fuck with him, because he's not the unevolved human it was programmed for, since she realized he was one of the major parts of humans reclaiming their glory and him dying would just fuck it all back up. That's just my theory.
>>454617685Not really, you already said you read the books and i have no reason to not believe you did, but if you're making a claim then you're the one who has to to back it up and prove it.
>>454617830Thanks for the new wallpaper bro.
>>454614826Oh shit nigger wait. What about ODST? Any word on a PC port for that? I loved ODST
>>454617971Dr. Halsey predicted all of this.
>>454617842>>454617996>I'm not going to believe you unless you read a 1200 page three book series to meNo, I'm not going back to those books, you can't make me.
>>454617935I wonder what kind of mental gymnastics you're pulling to asume 343's writing falls in the fanfiction category. Just because it's bad and you don't like it doesn't mean it's automatically fanfiction and not canon.
>mfw MCC will have completely released before Bannerlord even has a release date
>>454618137It's also getting a port. Reach, 1-4 and ODST.
Halo 3 still looks phenomenal. Goes to show the importance of a good art style.
>>454618194If the fanbase accepts shit as canon then developers will never retcon it and make something better instead.
>>454618186>unless you read a 1200 page three book series to meThat was already addressed. I doubt you read an entire book, considering you can't read a short paragraph.
>>454617921>what is halo 2 regret level>wave after wave of honor guardsHe even survived glassing6 was cool, but jobbed hard
>>454618194The fact that I could write a better story at 16 means it's pretty deserving of the fanfiction label.
>>454617934>Chief was the one given the "anti-composer shield thing" in his DNA.Yeah, right AFTER that cutscene/conversation.
>>454618462>objective: survive levelTry again, pussytits.
>>454618381this made me so upset
>>454613057same anon. we're nearly home.
>>454618360>I didn't read the books>Tell me how you came to the conclusion you did when you read them 4 years agoFuck off faux halo fan
>>454618573>Objective:survive>fails his objectiveintothetrash
>>454600689destiny has great lore, its the content and scummy business practices that ruin destiny
>>454618146Dr halsey was literally 200 iq too.
>>454618262Unironically based as fuck. ODST has kino level design, aesthetics, and the best SMG
>>454618631postponing suicide for this.
>>454618509Did you even pay attention? The only reason he could "receive" it was because he was implanted with it millions of years ago.
>>454618646That's a hatepost.
>>454618646It could be by making shit up, I'm not here to judge. I want to believe you but you make it very difficult.
>>454618186>No, I'm not going back to those booksThen by all means don't, but don't come here spewing your vague memories and own theories as facts without any intention to back them up.
>>454618647He actually completed his objective on Reach, he got Cortana da fuck out of there.
>>454618830I've been in the same argument with at least one person every halo thread I've been in. I'm tired of it.
>>454613057IM READYHOW BOUT YOUUUUUUUUUU
Lads, words can't describe how excited I am. Were not getting 1, or 2, or even 3, but 4 fantastic Halo games on PC where ever good FPS truly belongs. Please don't let them fuck up the ports.
Who here just /disregard/ post H3 storyline?>mfw Halo 4 didn't happen
The thing about Master Chief and Halo is that it's Undertale but nobody active in-universe has figured out that this is all a game yet.
>>454618327You live under a rock or something? No one accepts it and it's been criticized for years by pretty much the whole community. But until it get officially retconned then it will remain as canon, it is what it is.>>454618465Oh i'm sure you can, hell, i've already read many great fanfictions but at the end of day they're nothing more than fanmade stories.
>>454619126Kinda hard to disregard halo 5 when they spent half a year going "wtfbbq chief is a traitor now" "Chief is going to take on oni!" only for none of it to be true.
>>454618775Give me the exact quote where she said that, i already have the cutscene on another tab.
>>454618979We're getting 5 good games as far as I'm concerned and a bad one. It's a good development.
>>454600782he maxed out luck
>>454601357not really the humans are still allied with them and other post-covenant alien racesdid you forget the two shitty 343 games?
>>454619248>Kinda hard to disregard halo 5>don't think about Halo 4Boom. Doesn't exist.
>>454619286It's from the books, for fuck's sake did none of you read the books?
>>454609774Psh bullshit 343 guilty spark said it was interesting how chief was using such primitive armor and weapons to fight the floodWhy would the librarian want a human with "primitive" armor and weapons by forerunner standards
>>454600104who killed more?
>>454615072Yup>>454615171The chosen one shit is just garbage you made up because you never really understood Halo or liked the Master Chief. Go back to your books.
>>454618934Then maybe it's time for you realize that you're in the wrong, or maybe you could put 1% of effort and grab the book, find the chapter, take a pic and shut their mouths for all eternity.
>>454619467Arbiter most likely. Tough telling not knowing, but the arbiter is responsible for at least a few million human lives.
>>454618868>being this desperate to be right
>Glasses half your black population
>>454615197Master Chief was always the most important part of Halo even stated by Bungie in one of their art books.
>>454615509Were literally all precursors turned into flood dust or did any survive in actual precursor form?Seems pretty retarded that a race of literal gods can’t have at least one individual survive.
>>454616661Based noble 6ix
>>454618979Wrong, you're getting 6 great games. Fucking enjoy them you beautiful prick.
>>454619467arbiter killed billions.But he could never kill Chief.If it was only that easy.

>>454616464He's the all-rounder and luckiest, get over it.
>>454619467Arby by far and the absolute madman got away with it.
>>454619582Every person I get in an argument over it haven't read the fucking books. Why should I hold everybody's hands when they weren't even fans enough to read the books that were supposed to get you hypes for Halo 4? They have middleschool reading level requirements and are only 300 pagesImagine the fucking sheer autism and audacity somebody has to have to claim that somebody else is wrong about something they admittedly know nothing about. Fuck
>>454619605Oh no, the horror...
>>454619873He likes Halo 4. I haven't played it so I can't comment.
>>454619673>Were literally all precursors turned into flood dustYes, except the one that was in containment in the books that made the forerunner AI turn on them
>>454600104NO JOHN, YOU ARE THE DEMONS
>>454619719Halo 5 is objective trash. 4 is pretty shit as well
>>454619605based half jaw
>>454619823Then you got nothing to worry about m8.
SFM porn with Halo 2A elites when?
>>454619605>>454619836>dear humanity>we regret the flood happening to land in africa
>>454619873H4 is a good game on its own, don't be a sheep and let anyone tell you otherwise.
>>454620054>John 117 = John Stalvernholy penis, what a scoop!
>>454620064>Halo 5 is objective trash.Campaign? Sure, i agree.
>>454617282Where's your source, you lying faggot?>>454617971That's how I read it.
>>454619248You remember this fake podcast https://youtu.be/vpuyEBxoRGc I was so excited for Halo 5 and it was all a big bamboozle fuck 343.
>>454620209On it's own nobody knows what the flying fuck is going on. Halo 4 would have no sales as a standalone game
>>454620180The models have been ported for years and years and there most likely are plenty already.
>>454600104>mfw just finished watching all of thishttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8F7OgOCzph4
Would you forgive them?
>>454620321https://novel12.com/halo-cryptum/page-1-121184.htm>>454620364I listened to that shit even though I never bought an Xbone, anybody who bought an xbone for halo got played like a fiddle
>>454620315Multiplayer too. The art style and armor especially is fucking atrocious. Armor peaked with reach
>>454620458no, they are ugly will terrible armor designs
>>454620391I unironically believe that Halo 2 Anniversary's cutscenes are better than what most Hollywood studios could come up with
>>454620458That's armor looks RETARDED but depending on the situation I think the short sleeves could work if we're talking about hotter locations.
>>454620561>Multiplayer The only objectively shit aspects of H5 are the plot and art style, everything else is subjective.
>>454620052That’s dumb. They could literally manipulate the nth fucking dimension but couldn’t sleep for a few years without becoming this parasitic hell race. Precursors my ass, more like precummers
>>454620660Their planet has 3 suns, and they wear full armor around that.
>master chief isn't THE chosen one>He's just A chosen oneThis is your mind on 343 lore
>>454619467arbiter is literally a war criminal on both sides
>>454620851No they purposefully made themselves into flood dust because they willing let the Forerunners kill them. Imagine the Forerunners as angst teenagers killing their parents and their parents going "that's alright, we'll give you cancer."
>>454618710dont forget the AutoMag
>>454620987being a political scapegoat is hard
>>454620909It’s not hard to understand, just really dumb.Think of it this way, any other spartan could’ve encountered the librarian, it just happened to be John.
>>454620890I realize that short sleeves to reduce the heat is meaningless when you have aliens wearing high-tech armor, but I don't think it's that bad.
>>454616661I want to FUCK female Noble 6
>>454620209>don't be a sheep and let anyone tell you otherwise.I've sunk more hours on it that I would have liked. I think it's shit, gameplay-wise and aesthetics-wise. It's a 5/10 if it's a NON-halo game at best (2/10 Halo Game) And now you're telling me that it's shit, and I am "sheep" if I believe otherwise.343 pls go and stay go
>Noble 6 and Master Chief will never go on a covenant killing spree togetherIt hurts bros. The only 2 Spartans to ever be labeled as Hyper Lethal Vectors, and the only 2 Spartans Cortana have ever genuinely trusted.
>>454621134So it's just intersectionalist commie garbage then?
>>454620552I'll admit I got played. Halo 5 has some of the best advertising for any Halo the only one I can think of that is better is Halo 3's but Halo 3's advertising didn't fucking lie to me.
>>454600104Because he takes out entire armies without so much as a scratch, can regenerate at a moments notice, can jump off 100 story buildings and absorb the impact, can flip fucking tanks with his bare hands, need I go on?
>>454621253A lot of people compared Halo 5's advertising to Halo 2's.
>>454620909Humanity as a whole is THE chosen one, Chief is only a result of it.
>>454621006The wiki says:> A few Precursors escaped or were spared by the Forerunners. They either went into suspended animation or became molecular dust that was meant to eventually regenerate into their past forms. However, over millions of years, the dust became defective, failing to reconstitute the Precursors and instead inducing madness and mutations in lifeforms that came in contact with it. This form would later be known as the Flood. Far from accepting failure and extinction, the Precursors viewed the Flood as a means to bring unity to the galaxy as well as punish the Forerunners for their insolence.Then again, just autistically going over wiki pages again and again is pretty much the extent of my halo EU knowledge.
>>454614367If you were ugly and could hardwire a species, wouldn’t you add code to make them see you as sexy?
>>454621315>Because he takes out entire armies without so much as a scratch, can regenerate at a moments notice, can jump off 100 story buildings and absorb the impact, can flip fucking tanks with his bare hands, need I go on?That's literally every Spartan II
>>454621212Kinda, but only certain humans had the “chosen one” gene. IIRC it’s the same gene that allowed people to be spartan 2/3s. Imagine it like: all of humanity are the reclaimers, but only the white aryans are able to be the true top tier reclaimers.
>>454616241They do not work due to the framerate changes, etcAnd before you scream fucking 343 I'll let you know that there were super bounces that didn't work when you played on the 360 either. And also ones that were actually specific to the 360 as well
>>454621484Yeah but that contradicts even 343's lore. Spartans ARE better than regular humans, yet they're not? >>454621493I remember it from the books, yes they used the dust to pretty much live forever, but as a last ditch "fuck you" they used it to create the flood.
>you see this little lad running towards you >has a fuel rod cannon and plasma grenades Wat do?
>>454621703actually acknowledging the existence of 343's loreThat was your first mistake
>>454621703>Yeah but that contradicts even 343's loreIt really doesn't.>Spartans ARE better than regular humans, yet they're not? No, they were MADE better.
will it work on my pc i can run alien isolation on this low-medium 45 fps
>>454621897Well excuuuuuse me for getting excited for the installment that had me waiting since Halo 3's legendary ending.
>>454600782he's a big guy
>>454621703Oh so it’s more like a:>we could live peacefully forever and just fuck off to another part of the universe>or we could give one final “precursors hello” to our bitchy teen kids>hmm>yeah fuck those guys and the hard light they rode in on, it’s flood time now bitchThanks for the info anon
>>454621954>No, they were MADE better.I think this is the point where it start becoming your opinion. Halo 4's Librarian and Halsey say "Spartans are the next step in human evolution."
>>454621998laptops, not even once
>>454621998Why is your shit running so fucking hot?
>>454621374https://youtu.be/40jdpzrpIps https://youtu.be/3rridXskgWgMaybe I'm just getting them mixed up but whenever I think of Halo Ads I think of the "Believe" Campaign. Halo 2's were great I remember getting so excited when this first aired.https://youtu.be/ATUSC9ohowkMaybe I got a little more excited because after the shit show of four (fuck that menu theme btw) I thought 343 got their shit together.
How the FUCK does Halo 3 STILL look so damn good?
>>454622124So their specialized training, enhancements and state of the art armor is my opinion? They were handpicked as childs sure but i don't see you calling nowadays' talented kids "chosen ones" right?
>>454622115They were kinda like the guys from Mass effect what were they called, the Leviathans. Sort of like this aloof hyper advanced race that really serves no other purpose than to explain why there's an absolute evil wave seeping the universe. Except even the precursors didn't give enough a shit about self preservation to fuck off to some ocean planet, they literally just Jihaded the Forerunners.
>>454622226A lot of people felt lied to with Halo 2 because it was marketed as "a fight for earth" yet you never really do that.
>>454622031Everything post Halo-3 is a dream (nightmare)
>>454600104Didn't they say during the Halo 2 anniversary cutscenes that it was supposed to be an insult and a compliment like he was this horrible covenant murdering machine but also this incredible warrior that they almost respected
>>454621153An ass this fat could crush a Wraith
>>454622501Well Elites are like Predators in a sense. They take great pride in combat prowess and respect warriors of any race or species, but they value the honor of humans, and to them, Chief was the strongest and best of all the humans.
>>454622221i have chrome open with 20 tabs
>>454612860I don't care if I have to get banned for modding.I AM GOING TO WEAR THIS FUCKING ARMOR IN HALO 2 MP.
>>454622327Perfect art style. It goes along Mario 64 and Wind Waker as those games that will never look bad.
>>454622486>>454622226>Halo 2: Fight for Earth>Halo 3: Finish the Fight>Halo 4: Start Another Fightall LIES
>>454622486Oh yeah that makes sense but at least in Halo 2 there are 2 Earth levels that were good. Halo 5's drama boiled down to a goofy fist fight between the Chief and Locke.
>>454622931Halo 3 did see you finish the fight though. You dismantled the covenant, and you destroyed the flood.
>>454622631the entire fleet
>>454622327Flawless blend of photorealism and Sci-fi structures.It wasn't 'futuristic'. It was familiar and uncanny, something only Halo 2 Anniversary managed to get right since then.
>>454622931Halo 2's was like a white lie you fought for Earth but not for very long. I don't even remember 4's ad campaign, if it even had one.
>>454622702Seriously, what other 2007 game still looks so great up close
Is Halo Wars 2 on PC any good?
>>454622931Halo 4 never happened. You finished the fight in 3.
>>454623102why did they fuck up the elite design post halo 2 so badly.Thank god for blur
>>454623219I had fun but I also had friends to play it with.
>>454623219It's good on xbone so i asume it's good on PC.
>>454622931Halo 6 will start with the ending to Halo 5 but 117 will wake up from his slumber still inside Forward Unto Dawn with the first scene being 117's vision slowly clearing with Blue Team in proper non-343 shit armor becoming apparent It's a it was just a dream episode and people will cheer for it
>>454622631Best part of Reach right there
>>454619126I do it, don't give a fuck.
>>454623402I think it's funny that they went so hard on female spartans. There's no other way to do it, hyper lethal fem fatales. 343 wishes they made games this good.
>>454623253>Halo 4 never happenedYes it did.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MlQeLoTUoZEhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halo_4
>>454623402I always wanted that one armed chick to jerk me off with her robot arm. On a side note, I remember playing that game every day after my freshman year of high school, grinding credits to save up and get that robot arm. Man in excited as fuck for Reach again
>tfw I still have some Halo reaction images from nearly a decade ago
>>454623621No that's just a dream.
>>454623621That's the only canon part of halo 5. All those cheap knock offs worshiping the ground he walks on
The armor design in Reach was the best it's ever been. I really like the detail, how the armor was weathered, and the depth of customization was great
name your favorite weaponname the game if it was a specific one
>>454623774based and reachpilledonly book-reading lorenerds and tryhard MLG wannabees have a problem with Reach
The armor design in Combat Evolved was the best it's ever been. I really like the detail, how the armor was weathered, and the depth of customization was great
>>454622391The reapers you shit.
>>454623140>It wasn't 'futuristic'. It was familiarFinally someone else gets it. Halo was never meant to be a realistic depiction of technology 500 years from now. It's RETRO-FUTURISTIC, aka what people in the past envisioned the future to look like. In this case specifically, the 80's. Like ALIEN. But unfortunately with halo 4&5 they changed that to a modern depiction, lots of glow holograms and touch panels, skintight armor with a million polygons, etc.
>>4546238807 wood from Halo 3.
>>454623880Battle Rifle in 1, followed by the banhammer in 3.
>>454610975this post best post
Here's hoping the game is optimized well and not like trash needing a 1080 for a 10 year old game. Can play games from this time, like resi 5 or dragon age origins at 4K 60. Hopefully that's enough.
>>454624153Theres no BR in 1
>>454624117>a million polygonsDid you mean Hexagons?
>>454624107No you dumb shit, they expanded the lore after everybody shit the bed. The Leviathans were the original race in the galaxy and they created the reapers. It's the exact same case with the Precursors and the Flood.

>tfw no easter eggs like this in vidya anymorehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyObiOiDoOY
anyone here give a fuck about halo's development shit? if so what do you like about it?
>>454602786Yes and no. The first stories of the first 3games were fine and worked well together. Even reach and ODST were fine as spinoffs tied into the main trilogy. But anything after that just doesn’t work because the universe they built just inst designed to for a bug, never ending franchise.
I want a spaceship battle game in the halo universe
>>454624117I never got an 80s sci-fi vibe in 2,3, and Reach.
>>454624524I like that they had a dog's head in a jar, and that they were autistic about numerology.
>>454624315my main problem with 343 armors is that they kinda physically hurt to look at especially while moving
>>454624471>All Under Heaven>Say My Name>Song of the East>Do You Feel Lucky?
>>454624682sauce me up on that first part
>>454616661Only a Spartan 3 and one of the only two Spartans classified as hyper-lethal (other presumably John-117). Did he get this from work on the ground, or more interestingly, as his previous position as a pilot in the Sabre program? Was this monster going all Ace Combat on the Covenant before joining Noble6?
Guys, I'm crying right now. Just looking at her picture makes me feel something strange inside. I guess you could call it "love". I'm in love with Cortana. I've lost interest in all girls, besides her. Girls who are considered "hot" by the general male population don't cut it for me anymore. Cortana really is all I think about all day, every day. I really do cry myself to sleep at night thinking about how I'll never be with her. If only she knew I existed in this life, if only she knew my deep profound love for her. I know that will never happen though. That is the thought that makes me so sad when I look at her. I'll never be with her, but I'll continue to love her until the day I die.
>>454624890Noble 6 was originally an innie assassin for the UNSC before Halo: Reach
>>454624890That space battle mission in Reach deserved a game of its own. It was so damn good.
Does anyone like the direction Microsoft and 343 took with humanity in the Halo franchise? It was a lot better when humans were the underdog imo, now we're pretty much stomping everyone with ease thanks to all the forerunner shit
WILL MCC ON PC HAVE CROSS PLAY? WILL I HAVE TO BUY ANOTHER COOY OF THE GAME JUST TO PLAY IT ON PC? WHY THE FUCK ARE REACHES CAMPAIGN AJD FIREFIGHT DLC, WHO THE FUCK DOES 343 THINK THEY ARE COMPLETELY SCREWING CONSUMERS AROUND FOR 4 YEARS AND THINK8NG THEYRE JUSTIFIED IN PULLING THIS SHIT? WHY COULDNT JUST MAKE SLL OF HALO4 DLC INSTEAD SO? I JUSTBWANT TO PLAY TUE CAMPAIGNS WITH MY BROTHERS FFS.
>>454625141Nobody likes anything 343 did.
>>454625141I feel like it suits humanity better to be the underdog, just scraping by. A story without conflict isn't a very good story tbҺ fαm.

I wish the Covenant was real
>>454625714That's just what happens when you put a bunch of goofy guys in a laid back office together
>>454625952so who originally got the head

Anybody remember halo nightfall? God wasn't that a pile of shit?
>>454626548I liked ODST well enough. I'd also play a game where you're an imperial guardsman in 40K tbf (to be frank).
>>454626623Assault rifle you stupid fuck
>>454626229I've seen worse in science classrooms.
>>454626625I mean for an office space, it's pretty messed up.
>>454619126halo 4? hahaha nice joke bro, everyone knows the last halo chronologically was 3
>>454626695I’m concussed, what’s your excuse?
>>454626647They gotta stop trying to make Halo movies that aren't just a collection of action scenes done by Saff Afrikun Director Man.
>>454626598It's all forgiven now apaprently.>>454626617>>454626634Here's some cortana ass for you, i believe this will make things even.
>>454626647It was but at least it gave me the ODST armor.
>>454626813No, it's funny.
>>454626647My brother made me watch it because he had so much hope in 343 at the time. Needless to say, he’s pretty much given up on halo entirely because of the clusterfuck of shit released by 343. It’s sad really. He use to get really excited and spark up when we’d talk about or play halo. Now the sparks gone. 343 took my brothers happiness.
>>454626884I said fuck off. You've lose your Halo thread privileges.

Haven't played Reach yet, I will once it drops on PC. Is it a solid entry?
>>454627898EH...it alright. It lukewarm and tasteless. It lack nuance.
>>454627898It had far fewer maps and less custom game support so it wasn't as long lived. But yeah, it's decent.
>>454627495I'm on xbone but this is what i'll do:>check the armor customization>play a campaign level>play a round of FF>spend a couple of hours on forge

>>454610885Is a thing or is just another dialogue? Man I loved the amount of dialogues enemies had in Halo 3.
>>454627898It's like the Rogue One of Halo. It's vastly different, down to what kind of story it tells and how, but very good in it's own right. Whereas Halo 1-3 tell the story of Master Chief (and Star Wars tells the story of the Skywalkers), Reach tells the story of Reach, and not particularly the story of Noble Team; they're more supporting characters. I really liked it.
>>454629256Speed Halo doesn't work in H2A and Halo 5 though.And H2A doesn't have AAs
>>454629415In the level the Ark, right at the end you chase a brute chieftain through a room with active camo brutes. After that room, you'll find him in the middle of a circle of jetpack brutes and he'll challenge you on a 1v1 fight if you don't shoot them on sight.
>>454622062for you xD
>>454629089Halsey originally noticed it.That's literally why she chose him in the books.
>>454629915Wowhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGoGLCa3gB8I never knew that and I replayed the levels a lot.
You know guys this release kinda make me depressed for a reason though, when the trilogy would hit PC I was supposed to replay it with a friend, a friend that has disappeared for months and won't call.
>>454630497I'll play it with you Anon.>tfw lost contact with all my old school buddies
reminder that>MS was working on PC halo 3>but it got leaked>in the leak was cortana, a commandline application that talks to you and you can improve its speech>this was a prototype of the win10 cortana>now cortana is real and powered by bing>those that played with and improved cortana from this leak made it more sophisticated as a resultit was fun to play with that little window and i wish i was still doing it
>>454630324Don't feel bad, i replayed that level at least 20 times and only found out about it like 2-3 years ago.
>>454630497Im scared because my best friend is gonna buiy a laptop with a 1050 on it and because my PC might not be able to run it comfortably. My other friends that played with me are busy as fuck with their engineering degrees.
>>454630901Well if you can run at 60 FPS the Halo 3 unofficial port I am sure it will be fine.
This was always annoying for me, spartans are supposed to be the equivalent to an elite or maybe even stronger but in halo 4 and 5 you see spartan 4s killing like 20 elites at a time making them look lile complete idiots
>>454631439It bothered me because it stuttered constantly and the new maps they had were unplayable.
>>454631668>spartans are supposed to be the equivalent to an eliteuh, no.
>>454626647Remember how the only way you could understand Halo 5's story was by watching and reading all the 343 trash? Yea I remember
>>454632006>Remember how the only way you could understand Halo 5's story was by watching and reading all the 343 trash?Remember how the only way you could understand Halo 4's story was by watching and reading all the 343 trash?
How does /v/ feel about 343's redesign of the Arbiter's armor?
>>454631938They are. Spartans have way more training and can outsmart elites strategically, but elites are naturally 8+ feet tall and as strong and tough as Spartans.
>>454632153Oh god don't remind me about story time.
>>454631668>spartans are supposed to be the equivalent to an eliteThat was ONE line from the Fall of Reach book that was written before CE even came out. SIIs (in armor) = SIVs (in armor) >= Brutes > Elites = SIIs (out of armor) > SIIIs (in armor) > SIVs (out of armor) >>> humans (forma natural)
>>454632153If they didn't have Keith David voicing him I might not have recognized him
Because he destroyed one of their most holy sites and shredded everything they threw at him
>>454632232well you just outright said theyre faster and smarter, so you just BTFO your own argument. also spartans are typically depicted as being far stronger than elites and tougher thanks to augmentation. no amount of fanboying will change that.
>>454632376Fall of reach was written after CE 's first story drafts. In fact, even after that. It was written in a few months right before the game came out.
>>454632350Kek, most people don't know about that comic. Worst part is, it's CANON
>>454632232SII augs make their movement speed so fast that it literally snaps their bones in half unless they've got titanium reinforcements shoved in. Do Elites naturally come with metal in their skeletons? SIIs are specifically designed to move faster than what organic material will permit. They canonically live and move in 24/7 bullet time.
>>454630774What is the secret/glitch anyone wasted the most time on?For me it was like 4-3 hours into the night trying to do the undead scarab glitch (Ark level, use Sputnik skull, get a ghost explode it to mount it)When I finally got on the scarab I forgot to mount the turret and got thrown off.
>>454632376It's pretty sad how encountering one elite (in universe) was a life or death scenario and now they're just lumbering dipshits.
>>454611034Brutes are physically superior to elites and much easier to persuade. Elites ask too many questions.
>>454632607I wish my hard drive didn't die years ago. I lost all the OC that came out of those threads.
>>454632713I think you're vastly overestimating the human skeleton
>>454632782Elites are tough but canonically the closest that MC's ever been to death is getting in a bare knuckle brawl with a Brute in Halo: First Strike
>>454632924which is why they had their bones augmented, you alien dick sucker.
>>454600782Sheer fucking patriotism
>>454632607Maybe it's for the best.
>>454632350>>454632902what the fuck is this shit?
>>454612580just like real life!
>>454633031Chief has never fought and elite without his suit. Chief no suit vs arbiter would probably see the arbiter win if chief didn't have plot armor
>>454632924Feats don't lie, anon. The reason why Spartans can do crazy shit like Linda sniping 3 elites so fast that everyone thinks she just shot 3 bullets at once is because they literally move like Neo, only all of the time. You just don't understand how absolutely broken they are supposed to be in-universe. Your gameplay experience is ridiculously nerfed relative to what the books say they can do.
>>454633046No you dumbass, what I'm saying is alien morphology could allow for them to be "super human" hell they used to be like 8 foot tall without armor, right?
>>454627495Customise my armourthen I'll dm whoever I organised a campaign co-op sesh with
>>454633314but they arent. at least not by spartan standards. spartans are on a whole other level than elites, that much was clear from the start.
>>454633314There are big fucking 8 ft tall gorillas here on Earth but I'm pretty sure that their arms would snap just like ours would if you subjected them to the kinds of stresses that the MJOLNIR armor would induce.
>>454633256Nothing outside of the books has ever had them do anything miraculous. The craziest thing we've seen is them running 60+ MPH in the halo 5 opening scene.
>>454633162It's the comic that was meant to explain why the fuck cortana was still alive and where the fuck the didact went after halo 4
>>454633412>Nothing outside of the books has ever had them do anything miraculous.Are you one of those retards who claims that the books aren't canon? Because I want to know if your opinion is worth anything or not.
>>454632515Elites are just as strong as Spartans. The zealot that killed Emile was lifting at least 1500 pounds in his outstretched arm, even Jorge was struggling to do that.
>>454633412>nothing outside of the actual presented cannon lore has had them do anything cooldisregarding the fact that that sentence is wrong by virtue of the games existence, the books and comic are cannon so those feats are what we have seen from them. suck start a 12 gauge you elite fetishist.
>>454633518This is some modern Marvel era shit.
>>454633536>Elites are just as strong as Spartans.no, they canonically arent. >even Jorge was struggling to do that.no, he wasnt. jorge picked 6 up like it was nothing and threw him off a ship.
>>454633664>modern marvel shitwhen did the Halo comics do something like this?
>furries are pretending their headcannon is actual lore when even the games prove them wrongthis is why elites arent playable anymore.
>>454600104What else would you call someone who is preventing your Great Journey by killing all of your friends and tea bagging their corpses?
>>454620552>https://novel12.com/halo-cryptum/page-1-121184.htmYou're so full of shit it's not even funny, just stop.
>>454621197Noble 6 couldn't even save Reach.
>>454633608It's canon that elite combat suits enhance elite strength and speed but I was always under the impression that it's shit in comparison to MJOLNIR just like how elite shields are shit in comparison to MJOLNIR. So while Zealot/Arbiter suits might be good enough to start roughly approximating MJOLNIR, the rank and file get bullshit and are basically just wearing portable shield generators.
>>454633823Fact of the matter is they get defensive of bungies lore, when it's 343's lore now.
>>454624362I know you do.
>>454633976Nobody could save Reach, they were outgunned and outmaneuvered.
>>454634029>Zealot/Arbiter suits might be good enough to start roughly approximating MJOLNIRbut thats not true. the zealots are only harder to kill because they get better training. the arbiter suit is purposefully kept out of date and obsolete, as stated in halo 2.
>>454634096If Chief was in Noble Shit's situation he would have saved the entire planet.
>>454634203>the arbiter suit is purposefully kept out of date and obsoleteMaybe by whatever retard standards the Prophets maintain (b-but ThInK oF tHe StEaLtH gEnErAtOr) but clearly it isn't since it offers 1:1 performance to the Chief.
>>454634274He was on board the pillar of autumn. The chief is such crap they didn't even bother waking him up.
>>454634274One thing Reach got wrong was scale. It was a full on covenant invasion, not some slack jawed reconnaissance team.
>>454634416the 1:1 performance to the chief isnt because of the suit, its because its fucking thel vadam wearing it. he was born to one of the best clans and hailed as the best of his clan, and constantly went to ground and slaughtered anyone in his path even with the shitty rank and file combat suit.
>>454633181He had his suit with the Brute too, anon, they just didn't have guns and were fistfighting. Chief got the shit beaten out of him.
>>454634508They were pretty good at showing the scale of the invasion, especially when they took out that covenant corvette and a hundred more showed up. Still, the story focused on a commando team and not the main force of spartan 2's fighting off the invasion.
>>454634428They knew if they woke the god from his slumber, he might have destroyed both the covies and the whole planet in a rampage
>>454634794You need to stop watching dragon ball z.
>>454634748Keep telling yourself that, if your shields didn't charge as fast as the MJLOLNIR Mk V (as though they were, say, like those of a elite minor) then you would have been splattered in those bizarrely difficult Arbiter missions. Arbiter's suit is a cut above the rest. It's the old meme of ancient mysterious technology being stronk as fuck. The only downgrade that is ever mentioned explicitly is the stealth.
>>454634886Halo > your gayass anime shit
>>454633792Jesus Christ I can't believe this is real. Why even have that 3rd panel.
>>454618710The SMG and pistol are pure sex in that game.
>>454635051But you want it to be gay ass anime shit. Also they already made gay ass halo anime shit in that one movie.
>>454635189Oh no, how dare they insult us, magabros?It's shit writing but your outrage is kind of hilarious.
>>454634976it might have better shields, but arbiter never had a problem with shields even with the minor armor that everyone else wore as he was still able to murder countless humans in ground combat. in addition, this whole point is moot since all your argument has come down to is the shields when in cannon every aspect about Spartans is better aside from maybe that, and even then the arbiter's suit is a cut above the rest as per your own words.
