Loving the new Scorpion Tank designs

For to long the Halo MBT has been slammed on Halo Waypoint and Reddit ad being one of the worst designed tanks in history, sci-fi or otherwise.

It was bigger the the American Abrams Heavy Tank, yet weaker then the British Scorpion 90 Light tank.

But now we are getting multiple varriants of looking tanks. But they actually are looking like armored MBT. I’m excited to actually get my hands on them on theater mode and really check out the designs

I think the Scorpion looks good. Also how is it weak?

But yes, I too am looking forward to trying out these new tanks.

How did I miss the new scorpion design(s)?!

Those tanks really do look beautiful, don’t they? I’m excited to see what kinds of variants they make available for the tank and the changes in maneuverability and power.

Compared to actual tanks, Scorpions are very week, and they are also pretty slow, sad considering its supposed to be 500+ years in the future!

Max speed of a M1 Abrams is around 50 mph, a Scorpion’s is 60 mph

And Abrams fires 10 rounds per minute, a Scorpion fires 15 per minute.

And an Abrams requires more then two people, whilst a Scorpion only requires one.

It does have a high fire rate, but the 60 MPH speed is definitely not in the games, maybe in the lore it is however.
Amount of people doesn’t change the power of the vehicle itself :stuck_out_tongue:
The shells themselves don’t have a large blast radius compared to those of the Abrams.

Which is mostly just gameplay.

The gameplay does not and should not match the lore, or do you want plasma weapons to become overpowered as all hell?

Plasma Pistol becomes a three shot kill. Two un-charged shots to drain the shield, then one shot anywhere to kill the Spartan.

Actual original lore. The scorpion required 2 men to man it. Spartans could 1 man it because of the interface implants

There should definitely be a “Lore Difficulty” setting for the campaign that makes it like this, that would be epic lol.

New skull in Halo 5/6: “The Lore Skull” - Makes all weapons and attacks function as they would in-lore. :stuck_out_tongue:

I’m looking at the armor. And it’s profile

Abrams Vs Scorpion As you can see, the Scorpion is 2x the size of the Abrams. Plus the Abrams has a 120mm canon while the Scorpion has a 90mm canon. Plus the Abrams is designed to deflect rounds off the front. The Scorpion? The chassis original (pre halo 5) doesn’t look this was and it’s turret is designed to get blown off if hit to hard.

Halo Scorpion vs the British Scorpion 90 Light tankLooking at the stats of armor ment and speed. The Scorpion 90 Light tank is exactly the same as the Halo Scorpion but 1/4 the size.

Why the statement

It is bigger the the American Abrams Heavy Tank, yet weaker then the British Scorpion 90 Light tank.

Oh god that means only two needles from a needler kill you, plasma pistols hurt a lot, storm rifle would pierce right through armor. Covenant and Forerunner weapons would prove extremely deadly.

Ha. Loving this picture of how it would be like if you tried to set up a ambush like that of a Abrams

The Scorpion is so huge lol

And bullets would bounce harmlessly of your Titanium body armour.

Just seen the new scorpion and it looks amazing! Somehow still managing to look like a Scorpion tank while now actually looking useful. Hopefully its gun is 120mm or something now like a proper MBT.
Still don’t like the new Wraith tank though.

Man when I first saw that urban scorpion a few hours ago, rainbows were flowing out of my mouth.

i think the new design looks great too =] i love how vehicles have skins now which is awesome

Will the skins be just for warzone or will they be for forge as well

I wish the grizzly made an appearance in halo 5
