Halo 3 Guide
With the release of Halo 3, Bungie fans will be looking at new vehicles, new weapons, new maps, and new opponents. To kick off the promotional campaign for the game, the website Halo3.com launched late last month, with some preliminary information on Halo 3's characters, weapons, and vehicles, as well as a summary of the story to date.
Of course, like Halo2.com before it, the site is flash-based, graphics-intensive, and cannot be searched or commented on. So I've transcribed the text and created a Halo 3 Guide, not unlike our old Halo 2 Guide, to be the starting point for a database of items in Halo 3.
For each of these items, I have provided the original text, plus my own annotations.
Here's what we have so far:
The Story So Far (Halo 1 and Halo 2 spoilers, as well as Halo 3 potential spoilers)
It is worth noting here that the "Human" vs "Covenant" descriptions are no longer quite as helpful as they once were, as the Brute-dominated Covenant are still the enemies of humanity, while the Elites are now their allies. Here I am maintaining the old distinctions, so categories are based on species, not alliances.
Flood do not seem to have any vehicles or weapons, or indeed any technology, of their own, but are able to use what is available to them-- usually the technology belonging to their victims.
