They should make a forerunner land vehicle. A idea: Make a forerunner land vehicle alike a Scropions expect making it shoot out a light beam out of the vehicle as a binary rifle and could probably allow it to dodge enemy fire like the Phaeton.
So basically you mean Arkham Knight's Batmobile tank? I enjoyed driving that thing around in the streets. It helped a lot that Rocksteady took the Batman doesn't kill philosophy to it's logical extreme. A mobile tank is what I'd wanted to see in a Wraith, which was fulfilled by the Revenant. Now if only there was one for the UNSC or Forerunner.
Wait.....so you want a binary shot Tank , that has enough mobility to dodge in coming fire. Yeah playing in it sounds cool , but have you thought about playing against it?
Yeah, and a binary shot seems overkill for a tank. They could bring back HCE's cooldown timer (for Scorpion/Banshee) to make the main cannon less spammable. Or make it akin to the Gauss Hog (anti-infantry).
The reason why AK's tank was balanced was due to the large number of tanks you had to face and having to aim (without autoaim/magnetism) at their weak point (unless you had the chasis upgrade) to destroy them in 1 hit. But that game was also over-saturated with repetitive and often frustrating tank fights. Halo Infinite does not need a ton of tank battles. Just one or two large scale battles akin to Ark's tank/Scarab section.
There is a reason the Wraith and Scorpion are not mobile and are large targets.
Yes, it's necessary for balancing, but the Scorpion feels considerably outdated compared to modern real life tanks. Thankfully, 343i have added variants with increased movement speed, without affecting the default one. As for the Wraith, I hated how cumbersome it was in the Halo trilogy and ODST/Reach/4. Glad to see it finally getting the streamlined treatment!
Imagine trying to fight a Ghost equipped with a wraith main cannon. A Warthog with a Scorpion main cannon (not as good of an example , but you get the point). It would quickly outclass every other vehicle on the map.
I would have used the Hornet/Falcon as an example, it can at least handle the recoil. The Ghost/Hog get sent flying lol.
New vehicles would be nice , but they need to be balanced with the current sandbox ; or give each faction either , 1: an equivalent vehicle , or 2: the paper to counter the new Promethean rock. If the new paper is susceptible to the same old rocks , what's the point.....other than another re-skin.......which the community has been up in arms about since.....forever.
Or just make it a campaign/warzone exclusive. But it'd probably be a good idea to implement it for MP too.
When a Species reaches a certain level of technology , ground conflicts become almost barbaric , and they take to more sterile forms of combat.
I don't believe that should be the case. In ground conflicts, you can at least see a human face staring back at you. Against drones or bombers, nothing's really personal and the people operating these vehicles simply see you as a target to gun down.
