Where are the Curlbacks?

Hey guys Ryan here I was playing the old xbox yesterday. You know Halo:CE and 2 and while playing i noticed that the Curlback Grunts are gone after Halo CE. Ive always wondered why Bungie removed them. I thought they were cool with that little face mask that covered there whole head. And that little spike on the top. To put another way....They were so cute!!! They were also my favourite in Black 'Spec ops' Armour as they looked cool. Just wondered what happened to them. Heres a picture for those of you who cant remember them: [url]http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/Unggoy_combat_harness?file=Curlback.png[url]

  • @Dark It's a terrifying thing to drive with a marine. One thing I'm wondering is why the hell do the 3 Spartans at the end of the Scorpion section on Infinity even need pathfinding? I would kill... for them to stand still so I could push them onto the elevator without any resistance. I have to get them on the Scorpion to get them up the lift. Flipping it before I go up does nothing; they flip it upright themselves. When I'm nearby, they ought to let me do it. 1 out of 7 flip attempts manage to stop them from flipping it so I have managed to get a few saves where I had all of them up the lift with no vehicles around. I have to flip it after I've gone up the lift, so I have to miss out on the combat. If I had Theater, I'd be ok with this but there is no Theater! :/ [Edited on 12.14.2012 4:29 PM PST]

Grunts absolutely made the franchise. You could literally spend time trying to hear new Grunt dialogue and it counted as hardcore gaming. They gave so much to the franchise. Even the (standardized) H-2 Grunt doing a jump/fist pump when he killed me was awesome. 3 brought Grunts back to their creepy/nasty origins, but, 4 destroyed everything we loved. Is why I can't invest in it. Eff 4. [/quote] One of the possible plot holes of Halo 4. The MJOLNIR Mark VI had a translator, which is why we could understand the Covenant in 2 and 3, yet in Halo 4, we can't? Guess Cortana's not all she's cracked up to be if she broke it during the "firmware upgrade"...[/quote]Funny thing is that she can be heard translating the Covies on the Covie terminals at the crash site on Requiem. So she should be able to relay such info to Chief. Really big screw up. Also, getting rid of the flashlight was horrible. Every campaign, even Reach, had some way of illumination. While 90% of Halo 4 is bright, there are still some locations that are dark. Lastly, I can't stand these dumbass Spartan IVs anymore. Truly Halo 2 marines were the best. When I nerfed the enemy health on Cairo Station via mods, the marines were killing them without my help! H2 marines had the best RoF and health, which were made even better with Angry and Mythic respectively. Grumpy has a video featuring the IWHBYD fight and they absolutely wrecked the enemy! I'm not even sure if Sputnik and Angry were on. Whereas these "Spartans" are just reskinned Reach marines. They still take forever to get in seats, their melees are still too slow, they still drive around recklessly (especially with the Scorpion), and they still waste ammo on dead bodies...[/quote] Oh yeah, don't forget their love of driving off cliffs...

  • When I got into Halo the thing I loved about was the grunts. H4 made them into modern Sci-fi aliens. :((((

  • They relegated story to cutscenes. Halo 4 tried to bring story back into gameplay and turned out horribly. [Edited on 12.12.2012 6:49 PM PST]

  • Anyway, the curlback grunts didn't really do anything different. it was just a preference of aesthetics. If anyone knows the actual answer for their removal please tell, I'm interested. [Edited on 12.11.2012 6:52 PM PST]
