SPI Armor

Lets do it 343i , for your Spartan III fans :slight_smile:

And now that I think about it to you naysayers, SPI has had a MJOLNIR Variant, check out Headhunters Jonah has shielding, active camo and armorlock with his SPI armor

Just rename it, Ambrose (in honor of Kurt) or Headhunter

Check out the link, educate yourself with the fallen heroes of Halo

I hope not, those books were written poorly and SPI Armot looks and operates sub par to the standard issue. The sooner we can sweep the III’s under the rug and be done with them the better.

Well there’s 300+ Spartan III’s still alive, so we’re still alive and kicking :slight_smile:

How is it better? It looks like any generic eva ripoff.

EVA
SPIRip off…? Closest thing was Pilot from Reach (which even mentioned SPI in the description)

I just want to point out that Ghosts of Onyx came out before Halo 3. When people saw the original EVA, they thought it was SPI.

Didn’t help that it was in Halo 3 concept art lol

Very cool thanks for the link!

Full SPI armour

Way back in the olden days of pre-Halo 3 there was a rumour, not sure how serious, about having Spartan-III’s in the campaign, kinda like the S-IV’s in Halo 4. Would have been a cool concept, but I remember reading somewhere that Bungie toyed with the idea, then ditched it in favour of updating the ODSTs.

I for one would love to see the SPI armor on the Ghosts of Onyx cover come to life in Halo 5, be great for canon, better than all this manga armor we have now.

Really? I never knew that, would have made halo 3’s story abit richer in my opinion

Yeah, I tried to dig up some old stuff but couldn’t find it. I think there was a leak, or Bungie released some concept art or something and people went nuts. Would have been so cool I think. Then we had Reach and for a bit it looked like as though it would be S-III’s in SPI but they used Mjolnir instead.

Definitely would have have made the story better, can you imagine some of Gamma company dropping in to the battlefield in Voi? Chief is pinned by Brutes and down come the SOIV pods with the S-III Squad! Marines are like WTF did more Spartans come from, thought Chief was the last. Then ONI comes in later and explains how there was no more reason to keep it classified, either they save Earth or its all over.

I was one of those who was pumped for ‘SPI’ in Halo 3, only to find it was sadly a new thing called ‘EVA’ when the game launched. In Reach I donned the ‘Pilot’ helmet as soon as I could. I love the idea of the SPI armour being updated to ‘FPI’ (fully powered infiltration armour). Seeing it again on the cover of Halo:Last Light reminded me of how awesome that armour is.
Last night I unlocked ‘Buckaneer’ armour in Halo 5. The helmet is similar to the ‘pilot’ helmet, and the description reads “a crude but functional mjolnir variant”. So for now I will play as a Spartan III who managed to upgrade his SPI into shielded armour, much how ‘Helljumper’ is a powered ODST set.

With the release of the Mk IV and later the Mk V, I can only hope if we make enough noise, that SPI will be added too.

That would be freaking awesome! idk how they would have implemented them as AI though, I’d prefer playing as them then 2 random elites in co-op, at least give me the option

Buckaneer seems like its hinting towards SPI, but Recluse is specifically for Gamma Spartan III’s, a theory anyway

Have you ever made a thread that DOESN’T mention SPI armor?

Have 343 incorporated SPI armor in the game yet? No? Then sit back because these threads will keep happening and I hope they do.
