Everything else I believe should be excluded or only available in armor abilities that you aren't available to choose in loadouts before you spawn. Such armor abilities (Such as jetpack, thruster pack, active camo) could be scattered about a map or even absent from certain maps as an easy way to keep things balanced. These concepts would also allow elites to enter a game with the same abilities as a spartan.DecidingNebula wrote:Indeed, though I still believe the strength issue is non existent, considering that's just canon and multiplayer does not work as canon when you get to the down and dirty details of it.justathereptile wrote:Agreed on that one.ChocolateRay618 wrote:Okay, even though I support playable brutes eventually showing up, they are consuming the conversation and we need to move on.SilentRebel38 wrote:That still doesn't fix the strength issue. A typical Brute's strength id like the Meta from RvB, only probably superior. Plus, the phenotypes only vary on appearance. Strength, speed, etc. isn't affected. Making a new Brute specie as small as Spartans just for the sake of making Brutes playable would neglect their description as large creatures with incredible strength. Oh, and I just though about another issue while writing. Brutes are incredibly resilient, even more so than Spartan, giving Brute players a strength and resilience advantage.Delta5931 wrote:Considering Halo has entered into a universe where there can be aliens which look like both birds and dinosaurs, I don't think 343i would have any issue with making another type of Brutes that are as large as Spartans.

Lets hope Halo Infinite will give us what we've been looking for.
I know it may be much to ask, but alongside all armours we've seen in every Halo game for the Elites, I should hope that they add a huge swath of more like they do game after game for the Elites. As with assassinations, stances, weapon skins, armour abilities (but usable by all because for some reason that seems to be an argument that both should not have the same abilities, even though that was the case in Reach, and in terms of logic, if an Elite puts Armour lock on the exact same way a Spartan does, he's gonna be able to use it).
After all the cool stuff we got in Halo 5, it unfortunately has the glaring fault of it not being shared between species, and the potential for all the stuff has only barely been expanded upon for lore purposes.
