Halo 2 Commercial

Awsome stuff... if you haven't seen it already, watch it.

but my question for everybody, is i found this image in the commercal... what is it? it's seen right after he jumps on some spiked thing to fly out of the ship, and right before the boards a ghost.

Very good question

I've been looking at those frames of that video since the leaked footage, then at the TV recorded versions, then the direct satellite version.

And I still can't decide what either one of those things are.

The one on the left, assuming it is a Covenant unit we've seen before, might be a Hunter without all of its armor. That seems plausible, at least.

The one on the right is a real problem. Some suggested it is an Elite without armor, but in the new hi res feed version it seems to me that the mouth is not right for this. It could be a Brute without its helmet on. It could be a Prophet without a headdress.

It could be something entirely new.

i've been thinking

my friends and i have been thinking it over, and we think that the guy on the right is a brute without a helmet, but we don't think that the eel like thing on the left is a hunter. for one thing, the skin is the wrong color. what really intruiges us though, is the "arm" reaching across. it is obviously not the "brute's" arm, but it seems that he is trying to hold it back, or lead it forward, one of the two (notice the sway in his shoulders when it goes by). but who's arm is it anyways?

I think...

The thing on the left looks like an elite without armour (could be a prisoner or a mutineer that was captured and is being tortured for rebellion.) The thing on the right is probably either a different rank of brute OR it could even be a forerunner alien. As for the arm thing coming toward the elite thing; It looks like a new type of flood. The reason I thought the thing on the right was a forerunner, is because it looks like its holding a sentinel laser-ish rifle. As for the elite, it looks like it has a seperated mouth. -AlphaDMF

Guess about the left-most critter

I'm going to go with the others and say that critter #2, on the right, is a silverback Brute out-of-uniform. Seems to be right, to me.

However, critter #1 can't be an Elite... the jaw is wrong, and there're no mandibles. The head's the wrong shape, too. And it's not a Hunter; it's not orange. Thanks to this commercial, we've finally seen Hunters in the new engine; and they're not like critter #1.

My guess is that we're looking at an Engineer in the new Halo 2 rendering... the head shape is right, and we never did get a good look at its mouth. The eyes are kinda in the wrong place, but maybe they've tweaked it along with the other characters.

Wow... if that's an Engineer, they have really changed things. Although we've never officially seen an Engineer in the game, although it was found by people in the game files, this would be a radical departure. Originally they were floating, tentacled, bouncing pink balloons. This thing looks like a big fat brown worm with a face. Big change if that's an Engineer. I'd bet against it, myself.

problem solved

the thing with the long neck is a new covanent species that looks kinda like those flying aliens in star wars: attack of the clones. i read my xbox mag( which has a 13 page review of halo2 by som1 whos has played and finished it!) that there r these creatures that climb up walls and fly around making them hard to hit. and! in on of those commercals mc is shooting that creature with a needler. but dont worry we'll find out in a week

Well, colour me a stripe-butted ape...

It actually is an Elite, stripped of armour. (After having played the game and seen that cinematic, we KNOW this for a fact.) The low-res of the trailer prevents us from seeing that there is another mandible set.

Oh well, can't be right all the time. That'd be boring. :)

headless once told me about a

headless once told me about a Fore-runner with an skeletal like armour. I believe this is the armour on the right.
The arm that is going could be a Hunter, though I don't know where the Hunter is. Or it is the Fore-runner's arm hitting. Looks alot like a Hunter so might be Fore-runner technology I don't know.
The one on the right...I guess an Engineer.
Maybe the Fore-runner is protecting the Engineer?

Look, its apparent that the one on the right is a Brute without its helmet on.. on one of the bungie movies (I think it was the one titled Already Here or something, hi res. It was on the link you put up on the home page a few days ago) you can see when he says "I will continue my campaign against the humans" it goes to a shot of the new duel weilding eliete, then to some brutes/elietes, the brute up front has the same body style and a big mace like thing in his hand.. Maybe its just a rank of brute, such as a yellow/black/blue/red eliete?? Who really knows, who cares! We'll find out in 2 days. And the one on the left, like someone said, it might be an engineer, but really I still think its a prophet.

Ninjas on Fire

I remember a long time ago reading a quote about halo 2, and it said something like Halo 2 is like Halo 1 but its on fire, going 130 through a hospital zone being chased by helicopters and ninjas and the ninjas are on fire too. Well just maybe, it's one of those ninjas. Which I think also could be very wrong. But I guess we'll find out November 9th. By the way, i have no clue about the worn looking creature to the left.

Yeah, that was figurative language. A joke from Jason Jones at Bungie. I doubt Halo 2 will have any literal ninjas in it, on fire or not.

Been confirmed for awhile

Pics of the drones, as well as descriptions, have been in several magazines already-- there's no need for "proof" and they aren't spoilers as the info was released officially by Bungie.
