Halo, the ending, and another Halo???

I'm sure most people would've figured this out for themselves but if your that someone that hates seeing credits after a movie or game then you should pay more attention.

-------- Spoiler Alert! ---------
Don't continue reading this if you don't want to find out

Okay so after the credits we see that the ancient AI construct floats around space which leads us to believe that the little s.o.b. actually survived Halo's destruction, this in turn could lead to the construct returning in Halo 2. How that gets implemented into the story I have NFI. But on the other hand I can expect to see that the construct will play a crucial role in the next title of this saga. Also remember this, the AI construct mentioned about Halo being a weapon to devoid the galaxy of life and that Halo had an effective range of ex amount of kilometres and OTHERS will follow suite....
Does this mean that there are more of these 10,000km long rings floating out there in space?...

Time will tell when we shall find these theories out but I reckon I've smacked the nail right into the board about this theory.

343 GS is the monitor of installation 04, so there is at least 3 others not to mention the fact that you would only call it 04 if it went into the ten's.. so in fact there could be at least 98 others.

... I beleive that in Halo 2 we will DEFENATLY see a Halo ring fire.

343 GS also said "once the others fallow suit then the universe will be quite avoid of life". This could mean that the other ones havent actually left port or what ever and he has been the first one out. He may return to his home planet and tell the others where earth is. He knows because of the Pillar of Autumns computer that he was looking at. This is all just a theory and we will just have to wait for more information to be released (half a year).

Re: Halo, the ending, and another Halo???

That's a really good point to make that 343 GS will go and find help, and that he has had access to the POA's computer data and most likely knows a lot about the human race and technology. Although if you read the book Halo: TFOR then you would know that only shipboard AI constructs have the coordinants for Earth, that's why the Cole protocol was created, I wouldn't think that GS would've got knowledge on where Earth is.

Another thing is that there has to be other Halo's out there, GS will most likely go to the nearest Halo, other than that the story would be very theoretical at best. Mind you a lot of this is up in arms as well.

The MC also has something to work with, Cortana had access to the Index, a wealth of knowledge prehaps containing technology that can be used against the Covenant. Mabye something interesting will happen there in Halo 2.

Halo 2 can't be filled up with burning Halo, since some of Halo 1 took place on the now destroyed Pillar of Autumn! and since covenant got by the 10,000KM explosion, the ningas can't chase you all round Halo, that would be boring, so, what's te point telling us that it take place on burning halo when it's not possible!?

The following is rated PG for rudness
the capitals are the keywords
If you watch halos end movie, halo gets blown to PEICES
so how can you get around HALO since it's in PEICES
you can't run around one peice get a Banshee to the next then run across that peice, sice you could just fly back to earth with your middle finger up at the ningas and helicopter pilots, so as one theorey said, "it's gotta be on another halo!".

Halo 2 could have pilotable spacecraft, like a mix of the Pillar of Autumn and a Warthog, but then again, Halo 2 could have no trace of Halo what so ever! so that's why Bungie made the covenant get wiped out in 1, so they wouldn't have to destroy earth and YOU in the sequal, but, since its set in the future all of my thereys could be wrong! they could have the technoligy to repiar Halo and capture covenant soldiers and all surviviors, so you wouldn't always feel "one of a kind" in green, electric, energy restoring, health healing, metal clothing! you would feel a bit of a jurk in that! wouldn't you, or are I getting of the point?

The Covenant weren't wiped out entirely, that was only one battalion. They will be back in Halo 2 for definite - Bungie have already unveiled designs for the new members we haven't seen yet. Yep, there's more of them out there!

Re: Seeing a Halo Ring Fire

okie...maybe I'm nuts...but I think what was meant by "seeing a Halo Ring fire" was not that we'd see a burning Halo...but rather seeing the weapon itself fire.
that's what I understood from that...call me crazy...
as for the covenant being wiped out...if you've read TFOR...you know that only a few craft actually followed the Pillar of Autumn on its slipstream jump away from Reach...the greater mass of the fleet (the part that wasn't torn to shreds by Reach's orbital MACs (that's...Magnetic Accelerator Cannon...they're not lobbing iMac's at them...)) is still quite in tact...and quite far from Installation 04.
Besides...the trailer for Halo 2 clearly showed the Covenant Armada raining doom on the Earth.

the thing that's got me scratching my head...is...if Installation 04 was made to contain the Flood...what do the other installations contain? more flood? or some other massively destructive life forms?
the mind boggles...

I have a feeling that we will find out a lot more about the Halos and the forerunner in the sequal - there is obviously some reason for the Halos. Not to mention finding out more about the flood, the Covenant and 343 Guilty Spark.

Well i heard somewhere else on these forums that 343 sparks is index of ring zero four or whatever so are the instalations other rings?.

And maybe the ForeRunner built the rings to hold 4, or more in one ring, massive killing lifeform(s) and maybe to also study them.And the weapon in halo was a self destruction incase something went wrong with the lifeforms?

Halo's Functionality

yes - the A.I. construct is 343 Guilty Spark
as for the forerunner and all that...
...way I see it (this is what I got from playing the game WAY too often)
The forerunner built Installation 04 to study and contain the flood...as they say in the game.
But...they never mention anything about other installations (except that "Once the others follow suit...this galaxy will be quite devoid of life..."). So, while it's abundantly clear that installation 04 is there to contain the flood...we're not sure if the rest contain more flood...or if they're just there to cleanse the universe of life should the flood ever escape 04.
...putting thought into this now...it sorta negates what I said earlier about the other installations possibly containing other species...because...then you'd need a way to erradicate them all...not just the flood...
...of course...starvation IS a valid way of genocide for most any species.

in un-related news...when Oni came out (bear with me here) someone did some really REALLY sweet images for them...same someone who did some kickass work for Marathon...concept art or some such madness...and...I forgot this dude's name. if anybody could jog my memory, I'd be much abliged. throw me a line at b34r@b34r.net
thanks much

Halo 2 and Halo 1?

the Pillar of Autumn, it got whiped out, how can, all your, kill the, wait, if your ship gets blown up in 1, what ya gonna blow up on halo 2? why the heck did you have to blow your own ship up? thats YOURS, I don't think Ive ever played a game better than Halo, I'm sure Halo 2 will be better, Halo 2 is a bit of a wierd name, u think the'll rename it something like Halo 2: Return of the Covenant or Return of the little headcrabby things or sumutt?

I think Halo " is called Halo 2 : Earth . I seen that somewhere. The POA was an old ship and was one of many in earths fleep. It was updated for the spartons but was still nothing like the Other ships in earths fleet that couldn't stand up to the Covenent. I am going from what i have read in TFOR so if im wrong tell me PLEASE

Re: Halo 2 and Halo 1?

You're mostly right, the POA was an old ship, and not many of its kind were made for the Earth's fleet. Cortana chose the ship however when she could of had practically any in the Earth's armada. She picked the POA because that type of ship, although weaker than many others, was known to be able to take a lot of abuse and continue flying, so when the covenant destroyers hit the POA with their plasma cannons, it wouldn't fall apart like many other Earth ships...

Re: Halo 2 and Halo 1?

i see it not even being called halo2 at all, but an entirely new name. that would be nice. i hate sequals that have "2" in the title. i'm really wondering what kind of stuff is gonna happen too. it could go anywhere. i alse feel like there will be an alliance made between 2 parties and also betrayel. i don't know. when i first started playing halo i saw Cortona as a huge important role, but now that i'm reading the book, i don't think of her as important as i once did. also, everytime i play halo i find some new suspicious action from Cortona. just wondering about her reasons for some of the things she does. i also hope we see the forerunner and it would be awesome if they end up helping us out, and GS helps us once again. and like someone said about Cortona's new knowledge whiie staying in halo's control room. ok i'd better shut up now. i guess we'll see when it comes. i'm excited...

Re: Halo, the ending, and another Halo: an obvious theorey

Well i think i have an ok theory: The forerunner created all halo rings that have energy rings under them.They make it so that a weapon of MASSIVE DESTRUCTION LASER will shoot from the middle of the ring. The forerunner created the flood to protect the weapon. Im guessing that 343GS was made to ,how do you say take care of the ring with the help of the sentianls. Thats why cortana said whoever controls halo controls the universe. The covanent found out about this and went over to take this power. Since they didnt know about who(flood)was gaurding the weapon they sent over a giant fleet(armada). They discovered the POA and attacked with a couple crusisers( i know because when you get to the bridge on the first level look on the all the moniters). The POA crashed on Halo and the covanent stormed it and took keyes. The marines and MC where scaterred all across halo. This started ruining the covanents search for the weapon. When MC destroyed Halo the covanent wanted revenge on the Human race, so they tried to destroy Earth and the human race.....

343 GS wanted to fire Halos weapon, but why and at what? After you destroyed Halo, 343 GS survived and was mad. So he goes to the covanent and tells them where Earth is so they could destroy the humans. Then 343GS starts to head to another Halo.THIS IS WHERE I MIGHT BE REAL WRONG! MC comes in and starts fighting on Earth. He somehow learns that Earth is going to be blown apart. MC goes to covanent home world to find out how it would be destroyed. He learns that 343GS is going to another halo ring and going to fire it at Earth( which would kill covanent and maybe he will fire halo at covanent homeworld to but this i know is probably wrong). MC tracks down 343GS at another ring. MC might just end 343GS. Who knows MC might fire halo at covanent.

AND-spartan elite? is MC one? If so covanent planned the POA and halo assualt veryyy good. But i dont understand, the covanent wanted MC and the weapon of halo ho come they where both so close?Its hard to explain what im saying.

I believe that it was the Earth, Moon, and the Covenent home world, that bungie said. But it would be cool to incorporate another Halo.

faboo? which homeworld? Covenant are a conglomerate of races...so Jackals, Grunts, and all the rest come from their own worlds...that's why the grunts wear those nifty environment suits...
be cool to visit them all ^_^ ...though I think we can avoid the Hunters' homeworld in favor of those non-violent floating scientific things in TFoR...just a thought

Ok, from what I have read in most UK magazines, Halo 2 starts on Earth (well, that's what one would gather from the trailer) and later MC goes to the Covenant homeworld.

Also to the kid who thought "Halo ring fire" meant a Halo ring ON fire - wtf is wrong with you? Wtf made you think that Bungie would unveil seeing a Halo ring on fire as some sort of attraction, as opposed to seeing one of the rings fire(as in shoot).
Not only that but its blatantly obvious that "see a halo ring fire" means "shoot" not "burn",...

"Mom! I just saw a gun fire down the street!"

"Don't be silly Kevin, guns aren't flammable!"

...Jesus

Also as a previous poster touched on, 90% of the posters here can't spell.
Why!? I know that sometimes people being dyslexic can hinder spelling, but unless this is the Dylexic Kids Halo Appreciation Club, that shouldn't account for that retarded 90%.

Sorry to the other 10% who can spell and form sentences for my brash outburst, but I just hate that the internet is fast becoming a nest of people who don't seem to be firing on all cylinders, if you know what I mean (no doubt, 90% of you won't).
This wrecks it for the rest of the people.
It's kind of like going to a club about something you REALLY enjoy, and you're like "wow, this is cool, who'd of thought there'd be a Halo club, or a club about that band that I love but no one else has heard of?" and you get there and there's a kid on the corner drooling into his lap, and another kid with his hand glued to his head like Ralph out of the Simpsons.
Kind of wrecks what could be very cool.

ehh...

I think HALO 2 will be called "HALO: Combat Devolved" were everyone runs around, pointing each others eyes out with sticks and stones.

- "I do not know with what weapons world war three(HALO 1) will be fought,
but world war four(After halo has been fired, not set on fire!!!!) will be fought with... hocky clubs and coca-cola cans!!!

Re: Halo, the ending, and another Halo: and obvious theorey

Dude i got it. the whole stroy is very simple.
1.Everyone starts fighting(human, covenant, flood, whatever else there is)
2.343GS sets off the halos
3.Halos go *boom*
4.Everyone dies
5.That little floating bastard flies away humming and talking to himself
6. THE END

LOL i really dont think this is how it will go. I am hoping for some kind of rebellion in coventant ranks and unprecidented amounts of ass-kicking. A ring unleashing it's fury would be the perfect end-to-all of the game.

Re: Halo, the ending, and another Halo???

i heard Bungie say something about going to the Covenant homeworld, and the only thing they are saying about it is that it will be nothing like the alien world in Half-Life (awesome game). so the MC may go to the Homeworld, or he may just fire a Halo that's new the covie homeworld. Also, how will the MC not die when Halo fires?? unless he commits suicide for the good of the human race.....

Halo firing at Covies

Hey! Have any of you retards ever even played Halo before? If MC fires a Halo weapon, the others will follow suite! The Halo doesn't shoot a weird friggin laser beam or any shit like that! It destroys all life in the Universe! I don't see MC blowin up the Universe to try an kill the covies. He isn't stupid. Unlike some people......

Why are half the people here retards?

Stop with this retarded speculation. Use your feeble brain. --- Of course they're going to use another halo to kill the Covenant. Any body who has played the game and watched the Halo 2 trailer should know this.

General: "I'm asking you to re-target the orbit."

Admiral: "And let more of them slip the kill-zone, that's insanity."

*Hey, maybe they’re talking about Pluto and their going to hook it up to a remote control and crash it into Covenant ships.* --- Seriously guys don’t be stupid, I don’t know of any other planetary objects that have "kill-zones" where you can "re-target the orbit".

*Well how do you know there’s another halo?*

In the first Halo, Guilty spark says he's the monitor of installation 04, so we can safely assume there are at least four Halos.

Re: Halo, the ending, and another Halo???

There are many more ring worlds in space in the game. Another ring world becomes active in Halo 2. See, each ring world is capable to wiping out life to X number of kilometres. Once that life is gone, another ring world becomes active, wiping out life in another X number of kilometres. Also, though the Flood seem like idiots, they are actually strangely smart in their abilities. Their evolution rates have become incredible and there are special Flood creatures that generate more spores.
So, if those smarts were used to the full power of them, the Flood could be sent out of Halo and destroy stuff.
Level 8. At the beginning of that, the Master Chief THINKS he's activating the defenses. It's not explained what he's doing. Maybe he could be activating the real knowledge of the Flood, allowing another outbreak? Who knows.
Also, in level 7, 343 Guilty Spark says there was a previous outbreak of the Flood. Supposing he caused it. And, where did that outbreak go?
Brutes. The Brutes are the new version of the Flood, they do the exact same thing. 343GS does say that if they break out further they could evolve again. Suppose when they broke out, they joined Covenant and became the Brutes? This would mean their are MORE Flood out there, which could void space of life within millions of years.
Those are just my theories. Enjoy em!

First of all, the Flood weren't "connected" to Halo, they were just being heald there by the 343GS and the Forerunners who managed to capture every last one of them and some how shove them into the rings scattered about the galaxy (That's what I think is the deal, even though it doesn't make much sense). Second, I didn't hear 343GS say there was a previous outbreak, and if their was, the sentinals probably managed to contain them. Third, the Flood only evolve when teh Infection (the little crawlers) infect other hosts with Flood DNA (i.e. Elites, Grunts, Humans, etc.) creating the humanoid Flood in Halo. And finally, Brutes as Flood??? Come on! The Flood are clearly plant-like and the Brutes have some sort of fur and the Covenant would not let them join if they were Flood after what happened on Halo. The Brutes are most likely the bodyguards of the Prophets, but I could be wrong.

Re: Halo, the ending, and another Halo???

To everyone who's typed statements for this topic:

Halo doesn't fire a "laser" or shoot anything. It sends out a pulse (maybe that's why its a ring shape???) that wipes out all life that can sustain the Flood inorder to starve them.
Also, in the Halo 2 Trailer, the General says "I'm asking to retarget the orbitals." as in the orbital guns that ORBIT the Earth and fire at Covenant ships attacking. I haven't even read "the Fall of Reach" and I know that already!
The Covenant on Halo weren't the only Covenant in the freakin' universe!!! That was a small armada sent to investigate the halo!!! PAY ATTENTION WHEN PEOPLE TALK IN THE GAME!!!
Halo was designed to a) imprison the flood and b) destroy all life within 25,000 light years. The other Halos were also designed to do the samething within 25,000 light years destroying all life within the GALAXY, not the universe.
This may be redundant, but the Covenant are like a group of aliens who work together. They don't live on one planet. They each come from different planets and the MC isn't going to go the covenant homeworld, but maybe the homeworld of the Elites or Grunts or something.
We all know 343GS survives and he probably knows the location of Earth when he hacked into Cortana's data array in "the Maw" when she rejoined the PoA. He probably knows Earth's history, the location of all human colonies and Earth itself. He's probably going to go to another Halo and try to do the samething as in Halo 1.
I think that covers all of your stupid freakin' comments, questions and predictions. HAVE I LEFT ANYHTING OUT???

343 guilty sparks-halo2 trailer

I was watching the halo2 trailer and there is messages that come up and say something and then its stat. I noticed one of them say Outwit Ancient A.I. Construct . Isnt that 343 guilty sparks? Will this have something to do with what part of Halo2 will be about?.

Note: while i was typing this i went and looked at the other messages and they are in order of what you do in Halo1 does Halo2 take place right after Halo1?

I think 343 Guilty Spark is going to feature in the sequal. He's probably going to try and activate one (or more) of the other Halos in the galaxy and try to get the index back. (Cortana still has it!)

As far as I know Halo 2 does pick up right after Halo 1.

The trailer said 'Outwit Ancient A.I. Construct : Completed,' implying that task has been completed. From what it looks like, MC returns to Earth immediately after Halo 1 and finds it under siege by Covenant.

In my eyes, the only reason to believe that there will be anything about the 'Ancient A.I. Construct' or anything else about any other Halos is that the game is called Halo 2. It wouldn't make much sense for the game to be about everything but Halos. I believe the game will be mostly focussed on the Covenant though.

I know that we will definetely be seeing more about the Covenant. Other races such as the Brutes and the Prophets will be appearing, Bungie already unveiled artwork for them ages ago.

Maybe Halo 3 will look at 343 GS again, but Halo 2 will be about the MC defending earth and trying to stop the Covenant?

'Ancient A.I. Construct' is about destroying halo. But I think it's quite strange if halo2 pick up directly after halo1, I mean, look at his space ship. it have grown a lot bigger since we saw it last time

Apparently the trailer isn't actually the intro to Halo 2, or any part of it. It's from another part of the game. Presumably it's quite close to the start though.

halo 3?? most likely no.....hopefully yes

i read that the war between the humans and covenant would come to an end in halo 2. That means it'd be hard for another sequel to be made, but bungie is good at completing hard projects.

also in an artical i read, if i read it correctly, it said that the name would be "halo 2 taking the war to the covenant."

Maybe, if the war is ended in Halo 2 that means that Cortana and the Master Chief use the index to activate another Halo to destroy the Covenant? Provided that they can find a way to do that without torching the whole of mankind too, of course! Does anyone else think that "Halo 2: Taking the War to the Covenant" is a bit of a bad name?

By the way, Halo 3 could always be about 343 Guilty Spark coming after the Master Chief to reclaim the index...

That's what I was thinking. I know a lot of people don't like the flood but I really enjoyed that whole aspect of the game. It was nice to have two enemies which would battle each other as well as you, it reminded me of the aliens and marines in Half-Life.

Guys, site your sources. If you say "i read an article saying...", we'd maybe actually believe you if you gave a url with it. You'd be a lot more credible that way and not look like a jackass. How do any of you know what the full name of Halo 2 will be?

Well no-one KNOWS, we're just going on what we've heard. No-one's saying "WHAT I SAY GOES, RIGHT!" or anything. I wouldn't blame Bugie if they don't tell us the name because it may give away too much about what it's going to be about.
