So My friends and i have been doing a lot of reading on the halo wiki/forums and we’ve come up with a lot of speculation about the campaign – I hope this will give some people a break from the endless multiplayer squabble
Again - non of this is confirmed whatsoever so don’t hold me to this XD
Also if you guys have any idea of your own, id be happy to put them in the main topic.
First: Chief is a forerunner – Now before u freak out there are two sources that support this,
- in halo 3 in the mission “Cortana” he says “Son of my enemy” referring to the forerunners. This would make chief a “son of a forerunner.

- When 343 is raging at the end of halo 3 right after killing Johnson, he tells chief “you are a child of my makers, inheritor of all they left behind, you are forerunner” Now this is direct “proof” of chief being forerunner

Im not saying that chief is forerunner directly (cause that would be just weird and inconceivable) but maybe chief has some sort of special bond with the forerunners…. Again it’s all speculation
Second – The precursors fight WITH us (humanity) against forerunners. Back along time ago (near the times of the human- forerunner war) the precursors passed down a religious device called the mantle. This was originally supposed to be for the humans but instead the forerunners took it (no-one knows how). This might imply that the precursors liked the humans and trusted them more (because they wanted them to inherit the mantle) Which might mean that they fight with the humans against the forerunners
Side note: Right before the forerunners became extinct they may have passed the mantle down to the humans (thus giving them the reclaimer status)
Third – You (chief) fight against the precursors but the precursors fight with the humans. If you do in fact have some relationship with the forerunners then the precursors would probably not like you that much (as the forerunners killed all the precursors) This could mean that the precursors might try to turn humanity against you (this would be more likely in halo 5 because it was stated that halo 5 was going to be “Darker”)
