Are you down for playable elites
What's on your mind?
I was bored at my mom's house.
Almost none of my stuff is there anymore, except for my old PC.
Decided "Ya'know what? Lets make a fix-up to the Spartan IV Armory. Lets combine ALL of the MJOLNIR GEN-II models into a single roster, add some new ones and some GEN-I love here and there; and allow players to customize the thing like you could in Halo 4 instead of Halo 5's restrictive Helmet and Body only options."
And over the course of six hours I made THIS !!!
THIS is how the Halo 5 Armory SHOULD'VE been like.
Also this document only allows commenting, not editing. But enjoy.
My personal goal is to add enough to the roster that WITHOUT paintjob skins, you would have a total of 300 different sets. Currently, with my own additions added in cyan highlighter; there are 235 sets. Note, the Cyan Highlighted Armor designs are not my own art pieces.
Yellow Highlighter means that the armor set is either one from the background lore of Halo, an un-used concept art piece, a GEN-I armor model, or a cut design of armor that was either not utilized or redesigned before final release but still looks cool.
Green Highlighter is armor that has been renamed due to the design aesthetics of the armor set or because it was a Halo Online armor set that had a name that matched a Halo 5 set, but didn't match 3d model design.
The comments on the right by myself (RamboBambiBamboBingoBongoBoiyo) have links to reference images to some of the desired additions and changes listed in the document.
Still a WIP, but I posted earlier my concept design for the best possible rendition of a Spartan IV armory to satisfy and appease fans of both the Halo classic and Halo modern style. (link below)
BUUUUT I also said in that thread that I want to work on an ODST style armory. So I went out and started it.
This is the customization schematic, my plans for how players would be able to modify their desired ODST to their liking. A catalog of ODST armory components is also in the works.
For inspiration, I decided to greatly expand on the ideas of the Halo Reach armory; where you are given a baseline armor set (Noble Six wearing a variation of MJOLNIR Mark V) and then augment it to fit the cosmetic specialties of the Spartan in question.
Have a looksie :
Size - 8 feet tall
Abilities - Powerful Gravity Hammer that can stun and instakill most stunned things, can create a Vortex in the sky that does heavy damage to enemies and can control it, can use his hammer to pull enemies towards him the pull is so powerful that its shown to drag tanks towards him, while he does not have a Invincibility shield like Tartarus he does have better natural resistance due to his unique armor.
Size - 9 feet tall
Abilities - his Gravity Hammer Fist of Rukt can blast away enemies with extreme force, has a Invincibility shield that protects, similarly to Thrallslayer his hammer is strong enough to pull enemies towards him however it never displays the pull force Thrallslayers hammer does.
Sooooo THIS just popped into my recommended feeds
Apparrently we might get some new goods in Halo 4 to unlock.
So Reed you have won a prize
A prize of failure and bad writing that you made halo 5 look hated
Everyone remember that wave of concept art we got for Halo 5 that basically revealed the entire original plotline? Well, since I obviously have nothing better to do, I decided to come up with a little bit of lore for the Half-Prometheans that we saw.
So, where would they come from? Well, I believe they would come from a bit fully functional Composer. From where I'm not sure. Maybe the Composer's Forge is also partially broken? Don't know, but, Didact survives, finds broken Composer, doesn't care it's broken, uses it on the Storm Covenant, makes the Half-Prometheans. Boom! Origin.
What wood they be able to do? Well, I'm assuming they would still be able to teleport, albeit shorter distances. They would use a mix of Covenant and Promethean weapons. However, they would be unstable, possibly exploding randomly during battle, which would add an interesting gameplay element. They could be on either side when the Prometheans split from the Storm Covenant.
So yeah, there's a tiny bit of made up lore for the Half-Prometheans.
I played halo reach swat with my nephews and their friends, their ages were 6-12. It was sad so I went easy on them.

I know, pretty tough but there definitely are afew things that come to mind.
For me it's from most to less and keep in mind I do like most of these but I know just because I like them doesnt mean their not overrated:
1. The Banished
2. Atriox (that's right they are separate)
3. Deutoros Scarab
4. Halo 3
There genuinely isn't 5 things I can think of that are overrated, maybe the Elites/Brutes, I'd love to see another species be the antagonists for once

The Fall of Reach was such a good book. I'm not gonna read The Flood next only because I read that its basically just a book version of Halo CE. Sooooo onto Halo First Strike! So excited. I also pre-ordered the new Halo book, Shadows of Reach.
These are the names I have found. Note, a few of these share the same name but not the same Lore of the Halo 5 Armors (Breaker and Void Dancer for example.) and others share a 3d model that is the same as a Halo 4 and 5 model (Stealth being Venator). For those that have a name that is the same as another armor design from Halo 4, 5, and 2 Anniversary, I have made a new name to better distinguish them. That and also to avoid some possible copyright such as Goku and Optimus being renamed.
I compiled these from both Halo Online and Halopedia, but also a guy who made a list of models that he datamined from Halo Online, and posted on a cosplay design website :
Breaker - Buster
Cyclops - Balor
Defender - Phalanx
Goku - Champion
Hoplite - Legate
Optimus - Optimal
Scanner - Sonar
Seeker - Homing
Void Dancer - Avoidance
Now if only 343 included these into Halo 5 when Halo Online was cancelled, since they work the same engine and near-identical art style.
I've been reading Ghosts of Onyx and I read about a grunt named Kwassass, he came from a cold planet and he just wanted to be warm his whole life and then he died in a nuclear explosion.
I know what you are thinking. This is not a joke. It is a legitimate theory. You may be asking what I mean, the popular machinima series can't be canon, right? WRONG. In the very first episode of the series, the Red's banter about Master Chief and the events of Halo 1. Which shows MC and Halo's exist in RvB. Then there is also the Halo Ring on which it takes place. Which makes no sense as why they would be stuck on it. However, it reminds me of the Halo 5 Warzone map Raid on Apex 7. Warzone is simulation based training with red vs blue combat. My theory is that the Reds and Blues are testers of Warzone, before it was perfected. Which means the "Do you ever wonder why we're here" line feel weird.

That is right I got more to say on this other than his extremely overrated power levels.
First of all, his backstory feels and will always feel stupid and ridiculous to me.
1. How the fuck does Isabel know all this? Like genuinely how the fuck does she suddenly know everything about Atriox and starts telling his life story, not many people stop to think about how stupid it is.
Like she legitimately apparently knows when he turned on the Covenant, how he turned on the Covenant, their statistics in the war, probably his birthday too and where his home address is and probably has his serial number, social security number, and etc, And with how ridiculous it is I wouldn't be surprised.
Edit: She also apparently is fucking psychic and knows the exact words the prophets said to him and the exact number of soldiers that were sent each time, what the fuck she has to be making this shit up.
2. I'ma have to call bullshit and just talk about this little sideline as well "they almost got us, but Atriox? They never came close" and "even at the height of their power they couldn't beat the Banished".
Bitch have you been living under a rock? If their so infamous and unstoppable then:
1. Why have we never heard of them before in games?
2. If they were this unstoppable force then why the fuck didn't they just wipe out the Covenant like her exaggerations claim they can.
3. Clearly they aren't that impressive when you look at the accomplishments for each Faction right?
First the UNSC:
They took down entire fleets before.
Stopped them from getting their hands on Forerunner artifacts and weapons.
Took out major Covenant leaders such as the Prophets or Tartarus and Ripa.
Destroyed one of the Sacred Rings.
Invaded High Charity.
Sided with the rebelling covenant such as Thel Vadam which in turn ultimately cost the Covenant the war.
basically wiped out almost all the remaining forces of the Covenant post war.
Destroyed several armies and won several battles.
Took out a major Covenant remnant leader Juul Mdamaa and his Storm Covenant.
Now let's look at the Banished:
They invaded some places and stole some tech.
They killed some armies.
That's about it, like maybe the UNSC were closer to losing because they were actually trying harder and putting more effort into fighting the Covenant meanwhile the Banished sat on the sidelines attacking them while their distracted and basically scavenging from the Covenant while they were fighting the real threats.
Makes alot more sense now doesn't it? Like his backstory off the bat is extremely poorly put together when you really think about it and extremely iffy.
3. She's talking all this smack like "All you've got is one ship and half crew meanwhile Atriox beat up the Covenant, GO ATRIOX" yet that half a ship beat the shit out of the Banished.
Like Isabel just straight up gives off fangirl vibes where she's simping for Atriox and singing his praises then the spirit of fire fucks them up and their plans.
Some army they got there. Wow they were worth all the praise....
Also you could try arguing "oh well they were fighting the Flood too" and you know who else was fighting the Flood?
Both the UNSC and the Covenant.
