Pelicans

was anyone more than just a little bummed out when frankie said the pelican wouldnt be flyable??? the pelican would be a great asset on the new larger maps, transporting warthogs on the back or letting off snipers at secluded spots... i hope they change their mind and put it in the MP.

  • I think the only way a transport like the Pelican would work is if the levels were really large, otherwise it just wouldn't work well. You'd only be in it for a short period of time, meanwhile everyone else on the map is trying to gun you down. However the concept behind it works well, like if anyone played Planetside, air transports were used to hop from place to place because everything was so spread out.

  • well on the FAQs it said halo 2 would be the first game to support 24 players on live to only maybe half of the whole team would be able to fit in the pelican, which would be prety awesome about half of the team on defence and the other half going on a full assault on the enemy base getting dropped off at key points to ambush the enemy and the remainder going to the flag while the opposing team flys their drop ship and tries to shoot down urs with support from a couple banshees... total chaos but it would be awesome!!!!

  • clan tactics are majorly impoartant first of all the whole clan wouldent take off and leave the base unprotected seccond of all bases will mostelikly have turrets and walls to defend so it will require less people to kill more people on defence it would balance out so easily the more people defending the better the attackers have to be its just as balanced as anything else.

  • You know, good points. It would be fun to have a clan and ride in a Pelican taking over the world.. Lol but, wouldint it be a little unbalanced? Like a whole team appearing at once in one location. Though there's alway explosive weakness. Lol

  • it would be killer man and anyone who says otherwise is on drugs? if they can make the multyplayer experance as good as the single then they have done a good job.

  • yeah ur gonna need some way to get mass amounts of troops to one place and like i said it looks like the pelican has a wemon on the top of u quickly go look at the demo and pay attention. and i would never get bored of flyin around just droppin off tons of soldiers to go get the flag and them picking them up to score one for the team... and this is probably a litle far fetch but maybe even u could drop off the ODSTs off and let them deploy their chutes or something. and if the person piloting was smart he wouldnt bother running people over, instead just get to the drop off point and let the gunner in the back worrie about the killing.

  • I think it would be a great idea to make some multiplayer huge and make the pelican about as fast as the banshee in Halo 1 single player. Imagine bringing a group of players in on a pelican with a warthog to attack a base in a CTF game.

  • You might have a point there. But Still this is Halo, and not Battlefield:Vietnam, Because I've never played Vietnam yet, I shouldint say much against it though. Anyway. I think that maybe Halo has its own style, and maybe it isn't made for Huge vehicles like such for multiplayer action, does it really need it? I think its pretty darn good right now! ;)

  • battle field vietnam and all the new games are incorperating mass transoprt aircrafts? its defently not a bad idea if you think about it and if you ever get in a clan (if your good enough) this could add a hell of a lot to clan matches it would be redicusly fun i mean come on?

  • why do you really want to fly a pilican it would be good for like 5 minutes then it would get boring becouse of no weapons,no one would fly in it, noobs go suracidal and fly torwards the enermy or use it as a quicker trasport to a sniping spot so i dont really mind if it was lelft out

  • well the pelican so far has that machine gun on the back.. but if u look at the beggining of the E3 demo u can see something that looks like it might extend out on the top rear of the pelican... i was hoping maybe it was some new gun that could be used in the MP... wonder what kind of wepon it could be????

  • wow you take bungies side cuz your afraid that halo 2 might actually be crappy because of this cut back. origionaly the pc halo back when it was designed for pc had a chain gun at the nose of the plain i bleieve. the more variation they add the better at least have it an addable option i mean come on perfect dark was one of my favorit games because the multyplayer options where endless.

  • I think flying a Pelican in multiplyer would be kinda dumb. I mean, look at the size of the thing. Would it be a challenge when you can run over 10 guys at once in a huge flying vehicle like the Pelican? And besides does the thing even have guns? I don't think so. All you could do is transport Warthogs from one spot the the next. I don't know. Just a thought. No offence meant either. [Edited on 4/14/2004 7:11:51 PM]

  • if they make the maps like they should be (alot bigger than before), the pelican went maybe twice as fast as the PC banshee the pelican would have plenty of flying room, and whats the point of that gun in the back if u cant use it??? i think it should just be like the covenant troop transport from the E3 demo, but airborn
