What?! Ummm...? *tries not to laugh* Halo 4: FUD (The live action digital series) was set in 2529(ish) way before Spartan 4's. I'm just asking why are they so weak in it. Surely marines would be expected to have some sort of strength before they joined but most of those cadets don't seem to have much strength.
Oh I see, yah I never could understand why marines in halo 4 can only kill things that are already dead then run from those things they have in the place of grunts, I gave it my best, but I will have to wait for some one who knows sadly.
if they are sure they wish to go up againced 40 ships and hundreds of thousands of Kig-yar with both unsc technology and technology superior in desine to most post war factions who are well experienced, know what they are doing, and despise the very idea of other warriors having better training, then, lets be honest, yah they probably can beat me, the unsc is over powered. But I was going to offer to help if they do have a lack of mussel. Now I know that was a bad idea.
Somehow, I don't think the Marine training regimen focuses on building bulk muscles that fall apart on you the minute you stop using them. Plus Covies don't even bother being impressed about such things.
Well I wouldn't say they're weak, just because they're not the Incredible Hulk doesn't mean they're not in shape.
As far as the Corbulo cadets, look at how old they are..........they're really still just kids don't expect them to look very lean or mean. Plus I'm don't think physical strength is something tthey particularly focus on, in the military they don't need you to be super strong they need you to be capable of using squad tactics, marksmanship, strategy, and hand to hand technique. With proper technique you don't need massive muscles.
