The Covenant seem like they are going to return going from the ending of Spartan Ops, I was thinking that they should include some old Covenant species like the Yanme’e and the Sharquoi.
We’ve seen the Yanme’e (Drones) before in 2, 3, Reach, ODST and I remember listening to something and Frankie was saying people didn’t like fighting them because they were “annoying”. I don’t think that’s really a valid reason for them to not be included, Drones were always that one thing I dreaded to fight on my recent playthrough of Halo 3 Legendary, they were challenging because they swarmed you.
The Sharquoi are enemies we haven’t seen ingame but they canonically exist in the Universe
> No. I do not think that is the reasoning. They continue to lose territory, and pattern or no pattern, these defenses must be part of a perimeter. I suspect we are forcing them into a tighter arena than they care to fight in - soon we may be able to use the Sharquoi. And their victories, however few, always rely on the same thing - strategy, brute force, or luck. No. The only secret they hold is the location of their homeworld.
The Sharquoi are known for their “herculean strength” so they could probably be something like the Gúta (from the mission Nightfall on Reach) and Mgalekgolo. Here is a render of one and I think it could go through some sort of a redesign as it reminds me of an enemy from Rayman 2.
And something very unexpected, the Skirmishers. They wouldn’t be with the Covenant Remnant though, they’d be with Human Insurrectionists.
If you haven’t read/finished the Kilo-5 Trilogy don’t read this unless you don’t intend on reading them
The Kilo-5 Trilogy is focusing on a Planet called Venezia which both Human Rebels and various Covenant species live on in peace. The Insurrectionists want to attack Earth and one the Insurrectionists, Staffan Sentzke works with a Skirmisher called Sav Fel
I’m can’t remember if Brutes live there but if they do they could return and we could have a enemy faction with Brutes, Humans and Skirmishers
