Hello I am Haloloyalist117 and I have been a fan of Halo since 2008 and the main reason I like Halo is its wonderful story. I have read all the books and My favorite part of the story has always been the Spartans II’S and for years I have wanted Blue team in a Halo game. I was really hopeful for them to be in Halo 4 but sadly they where not.There has though been evidence came up that may point to them finally being in Halo 5.This will be a long post so please bare with me.
The Reason to have them in Halo 5
After the death of Cortana at end of Halo 5 Chief is lonely and is Discovering his Humanity.With Cortana gone Chief will need another Companion or Companions in Halo 5.Who better to have with him then his Life long fellow Spartan II’S Fred, Linda and Kelly with him ?They would be great to help John discover his Humanity and maybe even some reflection on there past in the Campaign.
What could happen if they are in Game?
After the end of Spartan ops Season 1 we see that it appears Halsey is helping Jul amdama. Imagine what a twist it would be if John reunited with Blue team and was sent to Kill Halsey? The question is would they kill the closest person to a mother they ever had ? I don’t know that they would unless her actions threatened Humanity which they are swore to protect.
What if Blue team along with John traveled together to the Ark to reactivate Mendicant Bias?
What if The flood is released on the Galaxy once more and Blue team on there own or maybe by Orders travel to the Ark to and Reactivate him? People say they where not in the trailer well we all know almost always the first trailer of a Halo game is not how it actually happens in the game.
Chief goes Rogue and sides with Halsey. The corrupt O.N.I and Osman sends Fred, Linda and Kelly to take out Chief and Halsey. Would they do it ? They would not succeed but How would that play out ? Let me make one thing Clear. They would not try to take out John In my Opinion unless his action threatened Humanity. We know though Chief would never do that because "Are duty as soldiers is to Protect Humanity whatever the cost "He would never turn against Humanity because his entire Purpose is to protect it.
Just imagine if Blue team meet John and they joined him because O.N.I is no longer in Humanity’s Best Interest and they ordered Halsey’s death. How would O.N.I and the UNSC React to that? But one must also remember Spartans will always do what is in the best interest of Humanity.
How they could be in the Game (Gameplay)
If they where in the Campaign they could take place of the other 3 co-op Characters. Each Character could Give you traits when playing as them. With traits like this.
(Note that player 1 always plays as John but when in CO-OP Players 2-4 get to choose there Spartans)
John would have the ability to command the team with D pad commands like those seen in Star was Battlefront. Example of D pad commands. Up-Move Forward Left-Spread out .Right-Move in tight. Down-Hold this position. This would be in line with his role in the Books.
Kelly would Have ability to Sprint and simply walk faster then anyone else. This would be in line with her role in the books.
When using Fred your Melee action is replaced with that of a Knife slash and his Melee is more powerful then the other Spartans.This would be in line with his role in the books.
Linda would Start each mission with a Sniper rifle that would be replaced after the players first death. Also when using the sniper she would have extra aim assist. This would be in line with her role in the books.
The evidence Blue team will be in Halo 5
There has not been a lot of evidence that Blue team will be in Halo 5 However there has been some including some straight from the mouths of 343.I will state the evidence here.
1.In “Awakening the art of Halo 4” Which is a book of all Halo 4 Concept art there is a very interesting picture in the very last page of the book. Here it is.
.Though not confirmed it is really easy to tell that this is Fred, Linda and Kelly. They are in Spartan II armor and they fit the description of them very well. Also being in the last chapter of the book could be a tease for Halo 5.Dont forget the cover of the book Halo Cryptum was Halo 4 concept art shown on the cover of the book before Halo 4 was even announced so 343 can be sneaky.
2.In 2012 Franky said this and I will paraphrase “They will not be in Halo 4 but we do have plans for them, and what they do will be germane to the main story”.Nuff said
3.Something Kiki said at a panel see it here near the 36:10 point.
Here statement there makes me really excited as they admit they have been Considering Blue team for the future of Halo.
See it here
4.There Appearance in recent fiction. After seeing Fred and Kelly at the end of FUD and Linda in the Scanned trailer I am confident that 343 is Try to Introduce them to fans to be more recognized in future games.
the Halo 4 essential guide. It states that “SpatanII’s wearing mark VI in the field have been reported but are highly classified” .I find this very interesting.
343 Bringing Star wars republic commando Creative Director could be a sign for Blue team in Halo 5 as he is a expert at making a squad based game.
. Here is a video of Evidence for them
Thank you for taking the time to Read my post and I hope you enjoyed it. Please post your Opinions below and Any more evidence that you have I did not post. Let us all hope for Blue team in Halo 5.Thank you.
