Hunter gun

So the hunter arm gun is really awesome, my hopes for halo 6 are that they add it into the campaign and make it a hunter drop. But I do have a slight fear that it might be a little OP there, so I had an idea to try and balance it a little.

What if we gave the hunter cannon a timer to which it is slowly draining out over a small period of time, seeing it’s not attached to the hunter maybe the weapon won’t function properly. This would give you enough energy to possably take out the second hunter, and maybe clear out a few enemies as well.

What if we made it so that the cannon only had a 50% drop rate? That way it adds a little excitement to it being dropped. On legendary we can give it a 100% drop, it’s hard enough to take those guys out, here’s your reward.

Also, we should get rid of the rapped fire homing shot hunter and replace that with the old beam weapon.

What are your thoughts? How can we balance this thing to be fun to use? I will say though, it is the hunter cannon so it should be a little OP, but I don’t think it needs to be over the top.

PersonalyI cant see the huntercannon as an drop,but also want it in the campaign.
So there should be a middleway.

Maybe you have to rip it off the things arm.

Nah,Halo is not some sort of surviving game,where such things are necessary.

Well, if you look at halo 5’s ending, humanity is going to need to find a way to survive. We are essentially wise men in the stone ages now.

What’s a way you think we could attain it?

True,but honestly I have to say I have no idea how to obtain it.

isn’t it though? besides, ripping a hunter cannon off a hunter’s arm is basically exactly what every player has wanted to do ever since the very first set of hunters shows up on Truth and Reconciliation in CE.

I just dont like the idea of an animation where you rip your opponent in parts.

What specifically would bother you about the animation?

Am I the only one that wants a variant based on that beam some of the hunters used to shoot?

Not the animation it self,more the fact that you use bodyparts of your enemy.

What about another variant of the hunter cannon thats from one of those ultra hunters Swarmlord I think. It’s white and it’s shoots in a arc-like and tracks you.

No, I remember discussing adding the Assault Cannon several months before it was actually announced with RuthlessSkate94, and he wanted the older beam-firing version as well. See this post for proof.

As for making it a drop in campaign, I think it would be cool if 343 added the ability to sort of ‘board’ the Hunter once the back armor plate was destroyed, allowing you to kill the Hunter that way. That would be the only method to get it to drop.

There was cut content from Halo 3 that actually let you bored a Hunter. It was pretty cool and they had it animated and everything, but they decide to leave it out.

why the hell not?!

I’d be down for ripping/axe kicking a hunters arm off just to take his gun, something I’ve always wanted to see.

Technically it’s not really part of there body, more of a grafted on part connected to a set of worms. It would be fairly tame in terms of violence and I’d imagine rather easy to do.

I approve this message. Maybe the next DLC they push might have another variant for the beam cannon. I would think it’s be very anti-ground vehicle though to be honest. Though just picture being on Warzone on Raid on Apex 7, sitting at the top of the spire just wasting people with fire from above?

Damn you’ve got a good memory.

Only when it comes unimportant stuff. I can list out major variants of Zaku IIs and their model numbers from Mobile Suit Gundam from memory, but I end forgetting important algebra and science formulas and equations. It’s really quite frustrating.
