Marine Armor

I would love to see marine armor in halo 5! Some received the nightfall armor aka odst armor. So I feel to complete things they should have marine armor, just like they had marine armor in halo reach. P.S. When I’m talking about marine armor I mean current marine armor not the old ones. Thoughts tho ?

Are you talking about that boring, generic armor H4 had?

I think the design is alright I don’t really understand how it’s “generic” but yes or at least something similar like how they did it in halo reach…

I swear, people slap ‘generic’ on anything 343 does these days…
How is this generic? Furthermore, how does the guy on the left here look dissimilar in design to this guy?

Thank you dude I feel like everyone on the forums are filled with hatred and negativity for no reason and don’t give 343 an opportunity…their armor design is not generic in anyway.

If one of them wouldn’t carry the good old SPANKR I really could not tell which was H4 and which was Mass Effect…
Did those armored really make it into the game? The few Marines I remember in H4 were more like that wierd Boring Spacefighter…

Tbh you can completely tell the difference…but this thread I didn’t make to argue lol all I’m saying is I would enjoy some marine armor in mp…if they changed it then great…tbh 343 have tweaked the design on a few things maybe they will too on the marines if people don’t like them that much…all I’m saying is I want some marine armor lol

How can you not tell the difference? 343 did an amazing job by making the marines look futuristic, but also helps them look related to the modern marine. It looks practical and lacking special -Yoink!- armor for breasts.

What’s with the ballistic vests though… these guys are going against plasma weapons, how is a ballistic vest going to help any against plasma? At least the old armor was somewhat effective against plasma. I doubt ballistic vests would be any better. The color scheme is pretty odd as well. Lightish red, white, and green? Those colors really don’t mix well. As for the Green variant with the armor plating, it’s not nearly as protective as other BDU’s with armor plating, and there is still the ballistic vest underneath it.

I would very much like to see marine armor in the armory options, be good for looks and machinimas. :slight_smile:

Generic and boring? Bull crap.
All it is is different. This armor looks best for Halo. Bungie’s armor design looks generic. It’s green (for being on land, compared to Halo 4’s space marine armor) like military today.

its a modular vest system, Notice the loops they are used to configure pouches, magazine pouches, holsters, etc etc. and the bulistics would be inside of the vesta nd could be any martial so it could just as protective.
They were many different variants,

Meh, I don’t like the new armor. I prefer this armor personally. It just looks so fricking cool.

Personally I liked the variation in Reach’s armor it looked so cool. Even if it was the Army. The Reach Marine looked Futuristic and Modern also to me.

Spartans are supposed to be the futuristic super-soldiers who stand out and catch your eye. Covenant are the ones with advanced alien tech. UNSC forces are intended to look like generic modern-day armed forces to contrast with these other groups. It’s a design decision taken by Bungie which 343 has faithfully continued. There are plenty of legitimate criticisms of 343 - this isn’t one of them. It’s blatantly ridiculous and simply unfair.

Wasn’t too big of a fan of the Halo 4 Marine armour. But I would really like to see Halo 2A’s marine armour return. 343 nailed that set.

Otherwise, I really liked the Halo Reach Army/ Halo CEA Marine armour. It looked like it could really take a hit.

Also, why does the marine design change after every game? I realise that it is pretty much Halo tradition by now, but the armour really does seem to change a lot.

As for making a marine set into a Spartan armour set, it really depends on how well the armour would look like with the full visor. For example, the Halo Reach Marine armour worked because it was pretty much a full helmet anyway, and thus the Military Police helmet was born.

it would be nice to have a marine amour for Spartans

after all a good portion of Spartan 4s were marines

YES I ALWAYS WANTED THAT ARMOUR

Since we’re on the topic of functionality of the armor, we should also consider if the UNSC is going cheap on the marines to fund the SPARTAN/Infinity program, fatigue factor of wearing potentially heavy armor vs a ballistics vest etc… and the fact that the featured marines are part of a diplomatic/non-combat force in a post-war world and therefore are not issued the heavier armor of the war.

But of course, the weight of the armor can be countered by a powered exoskeleton, but that would be >GASP< copying call of duty: advanced warfare (even if MJOLNR is already a powered exoskeleton)

EDIT: or technology advanced to allow for a light vest that is as effective as the previous armor.

Actually, Bungie’s armor looked best for bungie’s designs and environments, while 343’s armor look best for their designs and environments. While I’m not a fan of the Halo 4 marine armor design I do think they really do fit in really well. But the thing is, they shouldn’t really look like the military today, Halo takes place in the 2500’s. I felt Bungie did a really good job with making the marines look futuristic with the armor plates and such. Especially with 3’s and Reach’s designs. Both of those 2 had a pretty good mix of futuristic, practicality, and modernism (but not too modern). Which is how it should look.
