Here's my take on them both.
They both look pretty cool and the idea of a grunt mech is neat and funny. I just hope Halo doesn't turn all silly look with things like the Grunt mech. Again I like it and it makes sense but I better not see a brute mech or something. If I do Halo is done for me lol
The Wasp is a phaeton reskin. They used it as a base model, turned it around and added a UNSC theme. Anyone who has back round in this field can see this clearly. This doesn't make it BAD either just because they did this, but I must say it would of been nice to have a UNSC air vehicle that could hold more then one person and make it really different then the phaeton.
The Grunt mech as I said earlier is neat but holy crap if this is a REQ we can get then can you say insanely overpower unless it's armour is weak as heck! EMP don't do anything nor can it be boarded!!! I'm sorry but that is just dumb! 343I clearly did this because people complain so much about being boarded or getting EMPed .... "Oh I just called in my ONI Tank and got killed by someone boarding me! it's so dumb!! " Again if this is in FFWZ only then i'm 100% ok with these choices, but if it's a REQ that we can get then, forget that. I'll be using one of my 100+ Spartan Lasers on them every time I see one in a game of warzone.
I really hope 343I doesn't start making vehicles EMP proof either in Halo 5 or future games. I hope this is a one off.
Over all it's cool that we're getting these in game but honesty, again I feel it's a huge missed opportunity for the UNSC air vehicle.
The mech isn't a driveable vehicle it's just a boss. Why is a grunt mech funny? Is it because they're grunts? If so, that's discrimination against the unggoy and it will NOT be tolerated!!!! But in all seriousness, how is a killer death robot taller than a Spartan funny?
Why does everyone think that it's a phaeton reskin when they haven't even seen it in action? Yes, it has a vertical takeoff. Does that make it a phaeton reskin? No. There's a reason why the wasp is a rare and the phaeton is legendary.
