One thing I've always wondered about Halo 3

[b][i]"Those units have a priority task"[/i][/b] In the [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZU9FQRlcB5I]last cutscene of the level [i]The Ark[/i][/url] when the Master Chief is about to jump in a pelican, a lot of sentinels start appearing, then UNSC personnel prepare to shoot but 343 Spark tells them to stop, because they mean no harm since they have a "priority task". But I don't recall to hear about them or their task later in the game. Could these sentinels be heading to the new Halo Installation that was just getting finished? Or was there something I missed? If it wasn't mentioned, what do you think this "task" was? [Edited on 01.05.2013 6:08 AM PST]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Najar I thought this was the case too but this brings me the question, doesn't every halo has it's own [url=http://images.wikia.com/halo/images/a/ae/Sentinal.jpg ]Sentinel Launchers[/url] and [url=http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120818235059/halo/images/e/e6/F%C3%A1brica_de_Sentinelas_H2.png]Sentinel manufacturing facilities[/url]? Why would they be in the Ark if the new Installation could produce it's own? Or is it because the Installation defenses are not working yet and that's the reason it can't produce it's own sentinels?[/quote]I think they are supposed to have, but that Bungie either hadn't thought of it when they made CE, or that they--because of some reason--didn't include them. As for why 04b didn't produce its own, I think it might be cause the sentinel launchers weren't online; maybe due to the lack of power or resources, or that they weren't rebuilt yet. Some might have been, depending on what order they build/how they build, but there were evidently not enough sentinels anyway. EDIT: I've always wondered how the sentinel launchers work.. Are the sentinels sent through long tubes after having been created in a device similar to or the same as the one described in GoO, or are they teleported into the launcher from a storage or machine (the sould seems to suggest that something [i]sci-fi[/i] is going on in there). Like your way of questioning things btw. :) [Edited on 01.06.2013 5:47 AM PST]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] agent wash282 Probably headed to 04B not to help but the defend. As 04B was almost finished and could be launched soon its defense (the sentinels) needed to get there to be ready. [/quote] I agree. You may be correct since the ones who build are [url=http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090524212252/halo/images/e/eb/Constructor.jpg]this little thingies[/url].

  • I think they were heading to the new Installation 03 since right before that when the Monitor is looking at the diagram that's when he finds out about the rebuilding of the ring.

    I always figured that was to be 04's Sentinel compliment.

  • I think it was maybe preparing in case a flood outbreak happens? Or, as you said, finishing 04.
