Covenant warping in

If you have played Warzone firefight on the map Temple recently, you might have experienced Covenant troops warping/slip spacing in. Feel free to share your opinion.

What?

I find it to be pretty dumb and cheap. I understand that it’s just a simulations but still, the Covies and Prometheans kinda hate each other, so why would The Covenant have Promethean warp tech. It bugs me quite a bit.

They stole it somehow, clearly. Maybe have it left over from their alliance?

For some reason I highly doubt that is the case.

That’s the best excuse I can think of canonically. Otherwise I’ll willingly call 343 lazy

I think it’s best if we call it them being lazy, or just a part of the simulation. I’ve said this a lot and I will say it again: Not everything needs a canon explanation or needs to be considered canon. Because once everything starts being deemed canon, that when the real issues start popping up.

They are on the verge of extinction, and yet they can do this?

Keep in mind though…

It’s all just a simulation.

Yeah, I just noticed it today… I expected the prometheans, but got a bunch of elites instead :P.

That guy surviving a shotgun to the face at point blank is totally canon tho

Ha, ha, ha, now let’s get serious 343

I believe that is the only canon thing in all of Halo.

So Johnson is alive? Good, he’s better than Commander Boring. Can we get him as an announcer instead? And not for some crap $10?

I wish. Now that would actually be legendary, unlike the voices they choose. People essentially spent $10 for Buck, who’s character they butchered in Halo 5 nonetheless. They took away all his character from ODST and New Blood and made him the “humorous relief” with no substance.

The elites probably spawn by turning off their invisibility.But still a grunt goblin falls from the sky. Also don’t forget guys that there is something that is in these simulations that we all cant forgive or forget.

We can still destroy the enemy core!

I mean there are rounds where the Covenant and Prometheans are working together.

what a stupid thing to complain about, like you said its a simulation…

There’s already been a few maps on WZFF (Darkstar anyone?) where Covies use Promethean warp tech. I mean I can see the explanation behind it and that they just stole it - the Covenant now are just a bunch of pirates trying to get ahold of what supplies/tech they can get their hands on

To be fair, most of the Covenant technology is reverse engineered from Forerunner stuff. That’s why they were better at a lot of things during the war. It’s not at all surprising that the Covenant we see in the simulation use warp tech, more than likely somebody adapted it for their use IRL.

I mean, we’ve seen Warzone FF matches where Covenant and Prometheans come out together, and even Prometheans using human stuff; is it really so strange that we’d see Covenant using Promethean tech?
