they are still wrong...
this is the truth.
funny how it seems they downgraded Mark IV to Mark V
... He's referring to the fact that in the Halo universe, chronologically, (that means over time...) IV looks better than V, so the V looks like a "downgrade." But we know that it's just because in the real world, V was designed and modeled years before IV.Finnish_Spartan said:You cannot downgrade a lower number to a higher number... its like saying 4+1=3
Could you please read what you post (im confused)
Sigma-LS said:I think it might even be possible that the Halo wars armor is a MkV varient. When you play Halo 3 and read some of the stuff on the security parts that indicate they are MkV varients, it would make sense. I guess we have to wait and see if the ones in Halo wars have shields, then we'll know for sure.

Rocknrollcows said:im pretty sure they won't have shields. or atleast, it wont be an operational one.. may just be an animation before they die..
cause think about it..
if the spartans in that game had shields. and there were 50 of them... then that would make the game unbalanced and "unfair"
i could understand if it was like a "hero" unit. (remember RA2's tanya?) then yea.... but obviously, the spartans in this game arn't "hero" units.
that would mean the elites would have to have shields too... and that would ruin the game..
marine vs HALO 1 Elite = sad johnson
and remember.. according to the books, all the combat elites had sheilds since the beguining.
Finnish_Spartan said:Note the energy shields dont make the spartans invincible and the covenant could easily overtake them by force, Have you read the books snce theyre you can see as they perish to theyre death (100'ds of spartans some even with energy shield's)
Master chief is just a person with extreme luck since the armor doesnt actually protect him from getting blown off by a wraith (not to mention the homing plasma turrets in the covenant capital ships).
So just remeber master chief isnt invincible but actually quite vulnearable.
And how do you know that they are not hero units, Ensmble studios has been using "hero units" in theyre games for like... since age of empires 1 came out.
Master Chef said:Ok heres the explanation on the armor progression, and why it looks downgraded. Ima halo universe nerd so...yeah.
The MKIV (4) had no shields, but had the power augmentation, as well as the neural interface. Then, using elite and jackal technology, the MKV (5) was developed. IT had all the features of the IV, plus shields. Because a shielding system was added, the armor was made less complex and more immobile and bulky, as it was difficult to integrate the shielding technology into a slim, stylish suit. Then along came MK VI. It was much slimmer and has a medical system built in that can heal minor injuries using biofoam and other injectable medicines. And then there was the...MK VII. Some people don't recognize the MKVII as a separate suit (H3) as it only features a few minor improvements over the MKVI. Because of the cost of the armor, It is reasonable to believe that some Spartans are wearing a menagerie of different armor MKS/combos.
