Will the final missions be new or rehashed?

So, for the finale do you think we will have all new locations, rehashed, or a mixture of both? It would be really cool if they were doing all these rehashes then in the finale make an awesome impact and truly stand out moments, not just only in the cutscene, but in missions as well.

I have a nagging suspicion that we’ll be returning to the Harvester. It was deployed to find a Forerunner relic, a fairly important one at that. The Librarian’s Rest perhaps?

Aside from that I have no idea. The Knight that took Jul and Halsey could literally have taken them anywhere on Requiem. Watch as 343 trolls us all and we’ll find them on that map called “The Refuge”. XD

I’d say definitely Harvester as well- perhaps along with one of the maps from episodes 1-5 to help tie things together. With the Harvester still sitting there… anyone else thinking it might serve as a boss battle for the finale?

That would be more impressive than one of the Scarab battles in Halo 3 and Halo 3: ODST. I think 343i should absolutely do this.

As unfortunate as it is it will probably be a rehash of the same maps. To add such new and specific content just for Spartan Ops would have taken up a lot more room both on the disc and in the first download. I can understand why they did, just slightly annoyed that the UNSC marines are that incompetent that I have to keep going back to a place I cleared and they had to hold.

I would hope that if Season 2 does happen that we will be given whole new content just seen in Spartan Ops.

I agree completely. It feels like the story (of the missions) is driven by the maps and that is honestly infuriating. And it’s not really all that hard to fix it. All they’d have to do is make most of the revisits in the same episode as a continuation (like Valhalla in episode 3) and they could actually release a new map every episode.

Let’s say there are 10 maps per half season (which is only two more than the first half of season 1): A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J.

Ep 1- AABBC
Ep 2- CCDDA
Ep 3- EEFFB
Ep 4- GGEHH
Ep 5- IIGJJ

I would honestly prefer that over:

ABCDE
FGGGG
CDEAF
BADCF
DEABC

This system is trying and annoying and I found episodes 3 and 7 where maps were repeated in episode much better than the rest of the episodes, at least we got something fresh. And also it would allow the missions to actually have a neat arc as opposed to “go here then here then here and shoot stuff” which seems to be the motto of season 1. Maybe using my system 343i can give a whole episode the theme of trying to take over a specific Covie base and have one map being outside the base and another inside and we could actually not have to repeat the inside map again which means no BS (boltshot) situations like marines being idiots.

OT: I am positive the Harvester is coming back and can only hope its going to be some sort of boss battle (it would be perfect) and we MIGHT see one new map but I don’t think any more than that…

Wonder how accurate these are.

Interesting. Is the last one new?

Episode 10’s thumbnail: https://assets.halowaypoint.com/games/h4/spartanops/v1/large/s1e10.png
Episode 11’s(e10’s epilogue?): https://assets.halowaypoint.com/games/h4/spartanops/v1/large/s1e11.png

They’re just placeholders for now. Will check again closer to release.

They should make the very last Episode VERY GOOD or at least be on new maps and not rehashed. 343 needs this to be a spectacular ending for the first season and get people to buy Season 2, although I don’t think very much will.
