Halo Reach Brute Weapon(s)

We have yet to see a Brute-designed weapon for Halo Reach! The brute shot and the spiker can reasonably be put out of the picture because the Beta was said to bring back the older weapons basically! (I did not think of the name for this weapon myself but I do not know who first did it) I honestly hope there will be some kind of Spiker Rifle! Where it is a rifle that fires like the Needle Rifle and DMR but maybe it will be more innacurate and less damage with spam-capable shots! To me, it just sounds wonderful. What do you guys think of the Spiker Rifle idea? Does anyone else have any ideas/thoughts?

  • What about: the Nailer!!! A huge oversized spiker who fires 1 huge spike in semi automatic. Hard to aim, no scope at all and very low ROFL, but so rewarding if you do hit something in the stomach. Just a crazy idea how to have a High-ranking Brute Weapon besides the Brute-Shot. Make the nailer really big with the blade thingy all brute thingys have and you'll give Brutes the ranged weapons they need with it being unbrutey.

  • We have seen the hammer in game. We found a blueprint of the Spiker on bungie.net (look on the halopedia page for spiker) We know of the chopper from one "other" source.

Just the DMR (battle rifle) shotty, maybe an SMG or two and thats all.

  • If you watch some of the live-action Halo shorts when the UNSC Marine vet talks in the Human Museum after the war he points out a "Spiker" and says "This is a Spike Rifle, we call it the Spiker" that is where Spike Rifle originally sparked up, so that name is already taken. Thanks for playing, you lose.

  • I preferred the Halo 2 Brutes to the awful enemies we faced in Halo 3 and ODST. The crappy pastel coloured armour the [i]popped off[/i] when it took enough damage was an awful idea. The Brutes in Halo 2 were so different to Elites that they had an identity that we could compare with the name Brute.

  • Brutes definatly need some kind of shotgun, better then the mauler, something more fearsome looking. We should also see them taking human weapons as trophies like they did before Halo 3

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] ipwnstarrrrzzzzz [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] grey101 we know of the spiker,gravity hammer, and chopper. Those are the only brute related objects we know of so far. [/quote] Mauler.[/quote] I haven't heard or seen anything about a mauler in halo 3. I was also stating the basic brute tech, they aren't the prime military force so they shouldn't have all the brute weapons in halo 3. I can see the brute plasma rifle (grunts uses it in vidoc),spiker, bruteshot (since they had it in halo 2), chopper (had since harvest), plasma rifle, and then human weapons. I would rather see them use a human shotgun than a mauler.

  • I think Bungie will probably bring back all the Brute related weapons and vehicles (with some tweaks and improvements), but we just might not see them all in all Game Modes.

  • I'm no fanboy of the BR and I much prefer the DMR but maybe a less acurate and less powerful three burst spiker rifle or maybe a fully automatic I dont know, just an idea wouldnt be a big fan of it myself but perhaps it would maybe apeal to people who genuinly liked the BR not just for being a weapon suitable for every occasion.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Rusty1819 I hope Brutes are interesting in Reach: Halo 2=sponge Halo 3=reskinned Elites Like some of the original images for Brutes showed them having a retractable metal shield on their arm like the Jackal. I think that if they take away the Brute's power armor shield and add the shield that would be a big change. Give them a lot of health like Halo 2 (maybe not as much) but give them decent Brutish AI or once. [url=http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20091204012016/halo/images/6/61/Brute_Animated.gif]Retractable Brute Shield[/url][/quote] As many have already said in other threads before me, Brutes do have potential to be unique opponents who fight in an interesting way rather than large apes who twirl and lumber around until their lover is killed. The key to this is make them the aggressors, the attackers, the ones who rush you like giant radioactive monkeys. Back to weapons, the brute shot is implied from everything we've seen of Brutes, but it or any other Brute weapons be in matchmaking (in addition to the gravity hammer of course)?

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Havoxfire [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Corrosioned nah bungie wont take your advices, dont bother[/quote] Where did I post anything telling Bungie to take brutes out? I said I HOPE they do, but never strait up said "BugI3 TakeZ ou7 T3h BrUtz0rZ!1!!" What I'm saying is is that brutes have never felt like a worthy opponent and never portrayed any depth. Almost all of their weapons had a redundant role already achieved by a human/covenant equivalent. (Possible exceptions being the Grav Hammer and Chopper). I would LOVE to see brutes cut(along with their weapons), however, they most likely will not. Just to make this perfectly clear, Im not telling Bungie how they should make their game. I only wish to express my concern that the brutes... However, recent events have made it abundantly clear that Bungie has a high chance of putting them in. (Last line is kinda a joke for those of you who got it). [/quote] Brutes are in the game 100% fact with proof. Watch the 1st Vidoc theres a employee working on a brute cheiftan model, on one screen on the screen next to it, iot shows the guy working on something thats IN the game like a spartan or something.

  • tbh why the hate on the brutes CE elites just rolllike crazy alien gymnasts and halo all the elites did was xspend their time climbing on topof boxes halo 3 the brutes just ran you mentally, campaign enemies have always kinda sucked get used to it, the brutes have a cool storyline to tell and that is what makes campaign fun not the elites or whichever enemy you think is coolest, SO SAID THE ARBITER RRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!!!!!!!

You know how unimportant it was? When they ran out of time to flesh out the Brute Sandbox, instead of making the mauler, they just gave brutes Human Shotguns and claimed "Oh, Brutes like Human Tech." On the other hand, sure, the Spiker was cut, but they at least took the time to reskin a Plasma Rifle to make a new weapon. I honestly can't find myself crying tears over the likely demise of the Mauler. I can't answer your first question at the moment either. I'm glad that the Spiker is in the game, but it's not like I'm super suprised happy and overjoyed that it is in the game. If you've seen my Spiker thread, you should be able to understand that the Spiker's inclusion was pretty much certain in my mind, so my suprise when that above image was discovered came more from "Wow, we proved it was in the game this quickly?" compared to "Oh my gosh against all odds the Spiker is in the game!" I am curious to know just what tweaks it has seen and if it will appear in default multiplayer commonly. I await E3 where we will likely see it being used by Brutes.

  • Ok through everyones words I trust the Spiker will be returning, but I did say sorry if I am wrong and meant no offense to anyone! Just because I am wrong about something doesn't mean people need to freak out (not directing). Haha. But! Like that one guy said no brute shot is comfirmed and honestly it felt out-dated in H3 to me, I sure hope it is not returning. It feels like an off-balance weapon to me and always has. The Chopper will either be returning with a fresh design and look or a new vehicle as a trade-off in my opinion. I honestly wouldn't mind either decisions.

  • Maybe that'll change, and besides, we have the elites. A few Brutes can't kill the happiness that comes with them, and just think of the assassinations vs. the brutes.
