ODST's Vs Spartans

I've been playing Halo Wars over the year with Halo 3 and I just came up with an idea of who is the better soldier. ODST (Orbital Drop Shock Troopers) or the Spartans? Fancy a fight together to see which is the UNSC's best soldiers. [Edited on 10.07.2009 3:31 AM PDT]

            • It dosn't matter. Both of them are [b]puppets of war[/b] exept; Spartans are action figures and ODST's are teddy bears that changed their ways.

            • Spartans would win hands down even without shields because they were put through many augmentations that makes them superhuman with more strength (this explains why you can jump higher and kill faster doing a melee with a spartan.

            • I forget what I said in this thread, but the Spartans would win. As much as I love the ODSTs, Spartans are just far superior in training, armor, augmentations, etc. It's not really much of a contest. If you went by gameplay (ODST : Halo Trilogy) then maybe the ODSTs would have a fighting chance. But, canonically, not even a question.

            • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] b0skiewheels i cant believe this thread went on to two pages. just absurd. and odst is essentially a spartan without the genetic growth horomones, cloning, mjolnir armor, and the training from 6 years old. odsts are better in the fact they choose to do this and knwo there can be other stuff to do. spartans had no choice. they were tortured and mutilated throughout thyre childhood in hopes of a few surviving. in a fist fight, the books clearly stated, when joh FIRST got into his armor, he annihilated 7 ranking odsts. and even without his armor he put 3 in the hospital. so really there is no more comparison its basically a matter of preference. do you want to be a psychotic marine who jumps feet first into the middle of a battle with no hope of survival, or do you want to be a navy supersoldier who who jumps feet first into the middle of a battle with no hope of survival, but has special armor and ai in your skull.[/quote] actually, for the SPARTAN 2 program, they did kidnap them wen they were 6, but if u read the books, John actually enjoys the training, and they didn't torture them. they did inject them w/ crap w/out their permission and killed a bunch of them (they started out w/ about 75, but ended w/ 33), but most likely, most of them would have wanted it anyways. and they did have a hope of survival, before The Fall of Reach, almost none of them died on missions. for the SPARTAN 3 program, they took about 300 volunteers, had a more precise gene pool so none of them died from the augmentations, w/ a few extra illegal augmentations that basically gave them extreme adrenaline rushes whenever they are about to die, had weaker armor w/out shields less body armor, but had high-tech camo plates, and usually got completely wiped out after a few high-priority missions, though they did take out thousands of covenant w/ them. the SPARTAN 1 program is never seen, but probably didn't have the MJOLNIR armor, and might not have had the augmentations. they were used mostly for rebels, probably never fought covenant. so the SPARTAN 2s and 3s had equal training, 3s had better augmentations, weaker armor, and sent on more dangerous missions, and were super-duper uber top secret. 2s had better armor, lived longer (till Reach), and were top secret for a while, but eventually were made public to raise moral. basically the SPARTAN 2s were better, but more expensive. they were sent for back up mostly, and to take out high-priority targets. they worked in teams, but, as the Chief shows, they can lone-wolf it to. the SPARTAN 3s were good, but were basically mass produced. they sent them to take out bases usually, and were used exclusively for fighting the covenant. they were trained by a SPARTAN 2 named Kurt. also, according to a couple wiki's, Noble Team were some of the best SPARTAN 3s that were taken out and given better armor.

            • also, w/out the armor, they are awesome, but w/ it, it protects them AND increases their speed, strength, and reaction speed.wen they first tested it on regular marines, they moved so fast that wen the guy tried to move, it broke his arm and he ended up killing himself by accident because he broke all his bones. wen the Master Chief first tested the new armor w/ the energy shield and Cortana, he beat 10 ODSTs w/out killing any of them, got across a mine field, destroyed 2 motion tracking turrets, and deflected a homing missile. the missile did hurt him pretty bad, but he still won, by himself (- Cortana), against about 15 ODSTs wen they planned out the field and they had airships/turrets/mines [Edited on 05.07.2012 1:35 PM PDT]

            • If Master Chief can punch a hole through a solid metal floor of a ship (Halo 3 ending), then what do you think will happen if he used that same force to punch an ODST whose body is not as thick and strong as solid metal?

            • if you read the books, u would know that the spartans actually are better even w/out the armor. in their training, they practiced w/out it against soldiers w/ it on, and still kicked their butts. on their first mission, they didn't have the armor, and broke into a rebel ship, snuck into their base, kidnapped the leader, got out, and blew up the base w/ minimal injuries

            • If you read the books or even just paid attention to the storyline, you'd know that Spartans are better soldiers, but ODST's have a rather arrogant attitude. In one of the books, (I believe The Fall of Reach) a group of ODSTs approaches John in the gym and threatens to beat him up. By simply defending himself, John breaks several of the ODSTs' bones. Edit: Oh, and this is all without his armor. [Edited on 03.20.2012 2:06 PM PDT]

            • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Darkside97 Here is my say. ODST= swift, stealthy, and efficient. They have custom equipment such as the very impressive silenced smg with reflex scope as well as a personal handgun fave, they odst suppressed automag. Spartan= Advanced training though there entire lives. energy shields and RECON. Only special equipment i can think of is the spartan laser. Can punch a hole right down the middle of covenant lines with ease. Overall I'd say if we were voting on an urban area I'd say odst, open battlefield belongs to the spartans. Coolness however, belongs to the odst.[/quote] I concur!

            • You know its not like Spartans have been trained since age 6. Really not better than any other soldier in humanity, there's a reason why the Covenant fears Spartans [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] VautlingFrog [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] ZundayXx But still. Spartans > ODST's. Spartans have WAY more combat training, WAY better equipment, Shields, Higher stamina, more melee power. Everything is better on them, thats why they're advanced infantry...[/quote] ODSTs are regular Marine infantry that request to be put into the ODST training program. They already have actual combat experience under their belts before they even begin their ODST training. Honestly they have about the same amount of training. Spartans are no more skilled than an ODST. The armor they wear however gives them a huge advantage over an ODST. With out the armor they are no better soldiers than the rest of humanity. But to prevent hard feelings about my opinion I give you this: [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3jFTzhdZF4&feature=channel]Link[/url][/quote]

            • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] TheAngryMagikarp Spartans would win. Hands down. Read The Fall of Reach, and you'll learn all about their training and ability. While ODST's have to stay in cover and pick off their targets slowly, Spartans can easily rip through a battlefield and kill all of their enemies while staying in one piece.

            • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Darkside97 Yes i have read the books, i am not a moron i know what I'm talking about. I just find that the odst has a tactical advantage, and that alone can win a battle. Have you played halo wars, when playing as the ship commander in skirmish you can drop odst pods anywhere, the Spartans don't. Also they move fairly slow.Don't forget that everyone has there limits.[/quote]Spartans can just as easily be dropped from drop pods, as shown in Halo 2 in the beginning of "Delta Halo". And in reality, the spartans can run up to bursts of 70mph. So both your arguments are invalid.
