proto-mech

so i watched the ign walkthrough of adrift and the guy call it a “proto-mech” and he says you “can’t use it on this map”. note the word: “on this map”. maybe you can use it somewhere else like in spops or campaign.

It’s a Cyclops Mk.II and will not be usable according to Frankie.

Is a prototype for the mantis, that was being done in that facility (MP). It’s purely cosmetic, and to add ambience to the map.

well the interviewee aka lead multiplayer map designer Kynan Pearson called it a proto-mech. since he is the lead designer of mp maps id say he knows what its called

Well Frankie is the head of all things Halo, so I’m pretty sure he knows the actual name. Kynan was trying to please a larger audience, very few non-Halo fans know what a Cyclops is.
