YFW one needle round is enough to kill or injure a soldier to the point of a slow death.

YFW Grunts wield this

YFW a pack of Grunts is actually strong enough to fuck up a squad of Marines if they aren't very careful

The Demons from Doom. Sure the games dont have too big of a story but anyone who has played Doom 1/2 knows it's pretty fucking creepy. Just thinking of being a Human soldier or worker and out of nowhere HELL literally comes and just destroys you. Bodies are just being tortures and left to die slowly. Watching your fellow man become mindless zombies. While others are stripped and put on spikes.

Fun game. But if you think about it, Doom is a horrifying concept

Even with it's colorful and sometimes harmless color pallet, the Covenant weapons in Halo realistically would ruin shit. However balance for MP would be shit if one plasma bolt was enough to kill you.

The Assault Rifle shoots m14 bullets, with little to no recoil. So 60 (or 32) m14 bullets being sprayed out like a fucking 9 MM SMG.

And so on. Even the human weapons are crazy powerful. However Covies take the scary cake.

Too bad Halo (games) never really show this. I mean you can tell Elites are bigger against Marines. Yet they dont show how scary they are.

And I dont care how well trained you are, or tough you are. When you are fighting something whose fucking hands could literally hold your body using super heated plasma weapons you'd be fucking scared.

The Wraith in Halo is another grand example of why The Covenant would be an enemy you would never want to fight.

Game Wraith_
>Limited range
>Low impact
>Low blast damage
>Takes 1-3 shots to kill vehicles/etc

Actual lore Wraith
>Can mortar targets miles away
>Explosion is hot enough to vaporie anything without 50+ feet
>Anything outside of that 50+ feet would be subjected to heats so much that any living thing would burn and most likely die
>Anything without 150-200 feet would get 3rd degree burns or massive amounts of radiation


Pretty much a pack of Wraiths could bomb a base from a few miles away and leave nothing left.

You never get a good perspective of this in game because of how huge spartans are as well, and the game doesn't convey scale very well.

Maybe not scary but the concept of Hunters from Halo. Which are pretty much millions of tiny worms acting under one "hive mind".

The number of "worms" determines the power, intelligence and function of said being. All they need is a "Shell" to use in. "Hunters" can be the size of a grunt to the size of a building.

They also have the second largest population size, I think numbering in the trillions if not even higher.

I don't consider Halo 4 canon.
>>
>>262993147

Reach fucked up canon as well. Halo 4 is a fine game but it's a hard story to keep really.

Halo takes place over the course of a million or so years around an entire galaxy and beyond.

With dozens if not more living species, robots, A.I and such.

Trying to keep that in one fine super cool story isn't easy. It's a hard thing to keep.

Hunters and Elites are the best of bros

Hunters only respect and like Elites. Grunts and Jackals are shit faggots, Brutes are seen as cunts, and so on.

Sadly I think In Halo 3/Halo 4 some Hunters were forced to join because of fear and "brain" washing But I think several Hunters are actual allies.

Someone had some big theory that Halo 5 will have him be a big focus. Pretty much MED BAIS is "split" in different areas to keep him from fucking everyone up again. Someone made some theory that Chief or somebody was going to find the parts of him and re-use him to end the war.

Pretty much MB turned bad but over time learned he fucked up and is stuck in a limbo of guilt that "he" pretty much caused the fall of the Forerunners.

Didact now has 6 Composers and a Halo ring he's trying to use against Earth to wipe out Humanity for good. I'd give 343 some respect if they had the balls to literally kill off Earth and have Halo 6 be the remaining Humans trying to win against countless odds.

Halo 4=OMFG HUMANS BE STRONG OH YEA BABY

Halo 5=Fuck Earth is literally just dead. Billions just die no fail, including a large chunk of military

Halo 6=Humans are scattered, weak, moral is low, Earth is lost, Storm, Forunners, Didact forces outnumber them 10:1 or something

Only allies are a few Elites and Covies.

Would make Halo 5/6 actually good

This is how the Needler works, which is the original one. The Needle Rifle is more of a carbine rifle, with higher bullet velocity and accuracy, the Needles do home in on targets though.

If you get enough needles in someone they explode the stuck needles outwards, ripping the victim apart.

It's a gun that's never explained fully. However the best guess from the books is the crystal is semi-living and can detect body heat and "Travels" to it.

That would be nice for realism, but not really fun for gameplay, unless you're playing stealth or something. Maybe someday they'll do a really gritty realistic halo where the Covenant are fucking completely destroying everything and you're player isn't a goofy superhero in power armor, and instead you're a hardened soldier with emotional issues struggling to survive when completely overmatched and outgunned. But that would be a completely different game.

Same design choice with the needler. If you watch some animations you'll notice that on both variations the external needles are what are used to shoot since you can see them disappear.

Well if Im not mistaken most explosions are just highly compressed "sound" waves that are so powerful they just wreck shit.

I rememeber watching about explosions and the damage they do. And damn they are nasty. Some explosions dont just rip you apart or so they leave you intact but literally liquify your insides.

Pretty much said weapon (assuming its strong enough) would turn your insides into soup. So yes it would fuck up.

Don't quote me on this but from what I hear someone on /k/ using some crazy math figured out a Super MAC cannon would have the power to cause some massive damage if it was fired on a Planet.

Something like the force of 100 nukes or something. I dont remember.

Yet I hear a single rod weighing a few tons falling using just gravity has enough energy to wreck shit. Now being fired at 4% the speed of light would add some power.

Unreal 2 was shit, however at the end the penultimate weapon effectively shot a limited duration portal linked to a fucking singularity.

The plasma raifle in tribes always made me feel a little unsettled. And in the more extended lore of the Starsiege universe the cybrids were full on horrifying - the compendium that shipped with starsiege has a cybrid tactical analysis in it recommending targeting children as "human//animals" display an illogical hormonol//emotional attachment to them and the act can cause them compromise more strategically valuable assets. Also the readily used radiation to kill people readily, specifically the radiation gun could be used to kill human herc pilots with minimal damage to salvage. They were not an enemy to be fucked with.
>>
>>262997457
I can only imagine the vast energy requirements of such a device, considering that to project something to the speed of light from a standstill would require as much energy as burning all of jupiters flammable gasses up. So its 4% of a Jupiter to hurl one of those shells. Either that or they use some kind of quantum trick like warp fields, which require considerably less power.

Not sure about that, but in one the newer novels, the Infinity fires a MAC round at Sanghelios and created like, I think a seven mile wide crater? It's been a while since I saw the exact text.

Dunno if that would destroy everything but it does sound like it.

Magnets son. Also sci-fi lore

However said huge fucking thing is shot out using super powered magnets that "squeeze" it out. Each coil or magnets it passes it adds a huge amount of energy.

Depends on what kinda bomb it is. Not all bombs have fire. Ever watch a video of bomb tests (i.e myth busters) there is usaully little to no fire, the force is sound waves.

Sound itself is just waves. Some explosions are just those waves but super condensed to the point of causing some nasty shit happen to whatever gets it its way

>>262998139
Depends on what part of the planet it hit, and how much resistance was offered.
The idea of a guided Kinetic Kill Projectile is to basically just punch holes into heavily armored bunkers, without fallout. The speed of the projectile directs all of its energy deep into the ground, and so while the force might be between 20 and 100 megatons, all of that is directed deep into the ground.

It's crazy to know that every nuke on Earth and even a few MAC rounds wouldn't be strong enough to destroy Earth or most planets.

The Cerebral Bore. Does pretty much exactly what the name says; once you get a lock on it homes in on the target's head and drills into their brain, then ejecting all of the scrambled blood, bone, and brain matter in a stream of liquified gore. Oh, and it makes a horrible screeching sound.

if so, sure I'll buy Halo 5 if the xbone has enough worthwhile games

and they fix the fucking ugly as shit draw distance load in that's been around since halo 3

Hopefully the McBone has enough power to. I think Halo3/Reach/Halo 4 were kinda too "big" for the 360 to handle.

Also I can't say about campaign but MP for sure. Halo 5 already is focused on ARENA style gameplay.

Long as it's closer to Halo 1/2/3 with some mild Reach/4 elements It'll be good.

the practical is dropping soldiers onto a planet in a meteor shower without being detected and then work from there

The method of delivery is pretty freaky too. I mean let's say you've been running from giant tripods with disintegration beams all day, find shelter in a resistance base and meet some really good people and crash. You wake up in the middle of the night to the sound of a delivery pod hitting inside the resistance base and see the qt who just helped bandage your wounds a couple hours ago with fingers torn to the the bone limbering towards you as creepy as shit spider crab aliens try to attach to your face and make you one too. and don't even get me started on manhacks...
>>
>>262999827
you raise a good point, but the game itself showed the issues with drop pods

>squad gets scattered
>no guarantees you'll land somewhere you can even get out of
>could die on impact

but at the same time, losing one pod/soldier is a lot better than losing a dropship with 10 in it

and everyone knows in video games, drop ships and helicopters are guaranteed death

ODST are tough fucks for that reason. You could land literally in a cluster of enemies. You need to have the skills, speed, and power to pop out ready to fight.

In the books I remember ODST's were crazy effective and actually won a good amount of battles and were very helpful.

But hey even having soldiers jump out with parachutes can result in the same problems.
>>
>>263000150
sadly, no, not yet. The guy who makes these might do another set in the future, orginally these only went up to halo 3, but for now he;s not doing it.

I have seem some other ones that are fan made (the guy who makes these is a fan, but 343/bungie sent him some model files), but it's mostl spoeculatory, and it's also over 16,000 pixels wide, so I can't even post that on /hr/

yeah, but shown in game is during mid-fight

if ODSTs were more like navy seals where they do secretive missions that were discrete like espionage. they were good in combat at front-lines but it was no their purpose

Halo3:ODST showed them dropping during a surprise split-space rupture as well as straight into combat, they didn't have time or the safety to group together as first priority

Imagine getting hit with a rail gun. One moment your chest is complete and after a blinding flash there's a big ass hole in it. If the beam is heat based it cauterizes the wound so you can't slip into death by losing consciousness and bleeding out. You are lying on the ground like a human pen holder and you have nothing better to do than estimate how long the wound will take to kill you. Your last hope is that the brave motherfucker running past you gets hit in the head for a painless laser lobotomy so he can avoid your fate

My bet is on the Microwave Pulse Emitter gun from Soldier of Fortune. That game was bloodier than hell but that gun was probably the worst. It fired a beam of microwave radiation that cooks your flesh, and if you fired a charged shot it made enemies blow up like a balloon and explode in a shower of bloody chunks.

There's this unique sword in Tales of Maj'eyal that's probably the most horrifying thing I've ever seen.

Statwise it just inflicts fuckhuge light and dark damages in a AOE whenever you crit.

Lorewise it opens a time bending blackhole in the target you hit and the sword is the only thing stopping you from being sucked in yourself.
Thanks to the time dialation effect the poor fuckers caught in the blackhole are going to spend eternity being sucked into a blackhole that has already collapsed on itself

The Halo Lake Gondola part is my favorite part from Halo 2. Yeah you're just staying on that gondola as shit attacks you, but the music is fantastic and syncs nicely with the action going on. Then as you come up on the big structure and scope in with your sniper rifle and can see the covenant on the structure getting ready to fight you the music crescendos.

Magical.

It bothers how easily you can tear someone's soul in fantasy game.
Diablo 2 has a spell where you summon an entity who'll chase the nearest monster around, tear its soul into pieces, and carry said soul to hell, leaving the monster mutilated.
Statwise, it just causes massive damage, but I still find it horrifying. Especially given you visit hell later, and it's not a nice place at all.

I hate when they talk about souls, dammit.

well, it's a blade of focused plasma. Another example of plasma in fiction is a lightsaber, in real life, lightining bolts, the sun, and plasma torches are all examples of plasmas.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plasma_%28physics%29

Fun fact: it's entirely possible to create an energy sword in real life. it's actually really fucking simple. Plasma is effected by electromagnetic fields, so all the energy sword is is a hilt which creates the field, and a battery/generator which ionizes fuel into a plasma.

We can easily do the former part, I've seen kids muesiums that have small guided plasma tubes, it;s generating the plasma which is the hard part: it takes a fuckton of power.
>>
>>263004542
Frigates are tiny ass ships man. They're the lowest classification a warship can be. Anything smaller is designated a Gunboat, Patrol Boat or the like.
>>
>>263016262
This. The magnetic field is what shapes the blade and prevents it from spewing plasma everywhere.

However, plasma rifles and such are much harder. You have to create a magnetic bottle for the plasma to travel in, which will dissipate quickly as it leaves the weapon.

It had a story that didn't suck and standards for stories in shooters was pretty low back then, so that was something special.

It didn't have online multiplayer. Goldeneye doesn't hold up as well as you might think it does

I hate to be that guy who says "in the expanded universe," but in the novels, this is specifically explained by Covenant science and R&D being essentially nonexistent. They consider it blasphemy to try and innovate on Forerunner technology, and they have an extremely limited understanding of how it works. Consequently a lot of their shit operates at very significantly below peak efficiency.

This is illustrated in one of the novels when Cortana takes control of a Covenant ship. Those plasma cannons the Covenant have that release those dinky little blobs of plasma? Yeah, those things are supposed to be fucking beam weapons. She tears apart an entire Covenant fleet using just one of their own ships.

Logically, you would think that whoever did Skyrim would listen to players' complains and look at other games before making their own.

This is not what I call fun. It's RPG-like, okay. But making me feel that I'm just petting the monster, no.

75 arrows?

Heh, I enchanted my bow to fire mini-nukes..25m radius fireball with elemental weakness to further increase the pain

Oblivion is all about the magic upgrades - get in the tower; laugh as you can now tear anything a new hole or three

If you had been here for five years you would be familiar with Halo on /v/, since it happened with Halo 3, Halo ODST and Halo Reach. Halo 4 was also widely discussed as well.

Being neo-/v/ has nothing to do with length of time on the board, it's how you act. Right now, you're acting like neo-/v/.

Nonono, use Reach 2 for muh gritty realism. ODST is my fun campy soft piano serenade.

Destiny should rival it in ten years, although most of it is just following the same formulas of alien badguys, ancient races out to fuck everyone else up and crazed AIs (though surprisingly not from Ghost, it's Rasputin the war AI from old Russia who hopped over to Mars on the comm relay and is hacking the Cabals shit)
