Hot New Halo Art!

As a matter of fact, careful searching will reveal one or two bits that OXM didn't actually run. And feel free to come up with crazy theories too. We love those.

  • Interesting thing about the grunt w/ no mask. Maybe a melee to the face of a grunt will knock their mask off, making them unable to breathe. That way, instead of just dying instantly, they'd lay there on the ground suffocating and screaming all sorts of hilarious grunty things. As far as them breathing methane, it would depend on what percent methane their atmosphere is. Oxygen is a highly flammable gas, but since our atmosphere is only 20% oxygen it's not a problem. If we had a 100% oxygen atmosphere, THAT would be a problem. Same thing applies w/ methane I believe.

  • Small question. If grunts normally breath methane, and we go into a planet with a methane atmosphere (ie.the grunt homeworld) ...then what happens to the Marines? Also what would happen when we shoot something that explodes or throw a grenade?

  • Yes, the front belly of the ship looks very similar to the shaping of the front belly of the Pillar of Autumn, see [link name=here]http://www.bungie.net/images/games/halo/wallpapers/pillar_1280.jpg[/link]. There was some description of the new brute weapon in the OXM write-up, the biggest thing I remember is the use of the blade on the back of the weapon for melee attacks. Sure hope we get to use it too.

  • Anybody notice in the background of the screenshot where the master chief threw a plasma grenade and there is a big blue explosion? If you take a closer look there is a structure in the backgorund, and it seems to resemble a human ship! What does this mean?

  • Poor grunt :( My gues is that MC or a marine has shot its mask off. And now it is covering its face, breath. But i wonder what that thing beneath the warthog's tire is. Possible flood form of some kind?

  • The Warthog spawned on the Zanzibar demo at E3, so my guess is that yes, they will re-spawn. Just noticed it now looking for OXM hidden treats, but the rocket launcher pictured in GICover.jpg is definitely not the dual-barrell type we are used to. Looks more like what was called the "anti-air" launcher in the evolution of halo vid.

  • I noticed in a few the multiplayer screenshots that some of the players are jumping pretty high, higher than possible in the first game anyway. Somewhere else i heard about certain maps having zero gravity or something, i wonder if you can jump higher on these maps, or if maneuvering will be different. Not that it really makes much of a difference but i have had this concern as well: When creating a team game, will it be required that one team play as elites and the other as spartans? I could imagine this might be so for the sake of easy recognition of your team members. But it would be kinda cool to see red spartans [b]and[/b] red elites kicking ass together. So vehicles take damage to a critical point and then blow up? In the first game, vehicles (covenant vehicles that is...) took damage only when they had a driver. Will it be the same in this game? If they take damage regardless of whether there is a driver, one vehicles explosion could trigger the explosion of another nearby damaged vehicle. Talk about mayhem! Of course, if youre playing a slayer match, set to 50 kills... all the vehicles will be destroyed at around 15 kills. Will they respawn? This game [b]will[/b] rock my socks.

  • Oh yeah, and this is my thought on the maskless grunts. The grunt obviously doesn't breathe the same type of atmosphere as humans do. I think they're methane breathers, though I might be remembering incorrectly. Anyways, if maskless grunts are in the game, then one of the enviroment might be the grunt homeworld or at least an area where grunts can freely breathe. Or some bored designer at Bungie decided to make a face to go under that mask. Maybe you can rip off the masks. But I'm banking on my first theory of a grunt-friendly, MC-hostile atmosphere.

  • Grunts look awesome without there masks. They look freaky, but they cant back it up, unless there are alot of them. Jackals look awesome too.

  • Awesome, awesome stuff! Now we can see that freaky little grunt's gaping maw in full detail! ...great, now I'm gonna have nightmares. I just noticed the prophet has the same covenant symbols on his little floating...chair...thingy that we saw on 343GS and on the back of certain elites. Must figure out what it all means!
