Now a primordial weapon stache would be something I could get behind, almost like an arms race to acquire their tech to be a step up on cortana but if it takes place on installation 07 I doubt we would find precursor, but possible ancient human tech could be stowed there since it is where humanity was kept.
Here is the thing, there are no flood "weapons" anything that a pure form uses is an extension of itself so if you kill it the bodily mechanics to launch, thrust, whatever become inert. The flood live off of the advancements of others technology, they are the antithesis of life. If the flood were to construct it's own weapons it would no longer be the antithesis of life it would just be a another "civilization" dedicated to converting others.Maybe you are right, maybe they are not flood. Maybe they are Primordials which came from the same super ancient being that the Flood came from. Much like how the Promethean are Forerunner origin. I just know that the Halo Universe has 4 I guess you could call them superpowers. Three of those have an extensive pool of weapons and vehicles, one does not. I mean anything can happen despite what books there are the Halo Universal Canon is still rather malleable and not as rigid as say $tar War$ which has 2 cannons but nothing open up to additions to the lore.
The ideas presented arent bad but they arent the flood either.
I mean if Prometheans were just added in as always forerunner (so they were around before Halo CE) I am sure we could make it work, if not Flood in origin then something related to Flood.
Well now we got to talk more about the Flood in origin and the Primodials as well as other precursors. So the Primodials come form the same place as the flood, and use a similar weapons but did the came before or after, also how do they fight. Well we got bioweapons of sorts, but also flood in nature so some sort of infection/assimilation form of such. But they also have to differ from the Flood, make them more blueish in color (such as aqua), maybe even purple (which might give more insight to the covenant's choice of purple.
Well back to the weapons, now that we established a new sort of faction that is peer to the Flood, how do those weapons fit in with the Flood-like theme, or do you have other ideas?
