If clicked on this I have to say i don’t mean the hulk smash monsters we know but a smaller more humaniod version of them. Hunters are already pretty humanoid but what i mean something like the Alpha Big Daddies to whose who have played Bioshock.
Basically this, just with the shield being smaller, no cannon arm and no visable weak points. The reason for no visible weak points i, if i recall corretly the reason the hunters had those in the first place was so the Covenant would kill them if they ever rebelled.
A hunter type that is basically an Alpha Big Daddy. Smaller, yet still very capable. It would be easy for them to have very unique things about them like a shield similar to The Clone Assassins for melee.
The could have a think armored layer instead of shields, which would give them a backwards advantage.
Spartans- Shields weak to plasma, armor weak against projectiles.
Hunters- Hull weak to projectiles, while flesh is weak to plasma.
Or Vise Versa
Of course certain features would be different from the other hunters. The Spines would be much smaller compared to larger Hunters.
A back story would be easy.
These Hunters have sided with us and want to show their loyalty in serving our armed forces. They even have taken on a basic human look and size.( or Spartan)
Unique look, assassinations, awhile still being the same size as a Spartan.
I’m not a big fan of Canon MP but this could easily go in well. The Hunters could be training aboard the Infinity or on an off site location where, when they feel the need to train the just hook up to the system and they are ready.(Epiphany) This same thing could be done for the Elites couldn’t it?
