[Locked] What happened to the Scarab fights?

OP I Dr Protein I

Halo 3 and Halo 3:ODST both had a Scarab boss battle, why hasn't this been done and improved on in recent titles? is it a canon reason as the Covenant don't use them anymore?

Sure we got the scripted Lich fight in Halo 4 but it wasn't the same, just had to clear it out. Also the Kraken in Halo 5 is pretty much the same as the Lich but bigger and they added turrets to it but it was stationary. The Scarab could've been used at the end of the first level where fire team Osiris confronts Jul but instead he's in a Scarab with two Phantoms at his sides. Then Palmer could've done her epic Pelican entrance, picked us up and given us the controls to it to take them out. Assuming that Halsey is on one of the phantoms we send Palmer to retrieve her since they're best buds now while we fight off the Scarab. Once the Scarab explodes the cinematic starts and you have Osiris walking to the wreckage and seeing Jul trapped under it. This is when Locke could take him out. i believe this would've been a better ending to his character.

and I liked the Warden fight but maybe later on in the last levels you could've added in some different mechanics so it didn't feel the same as the first time. Maybe giving him an Aerial mode change and we could've fought him with Phaetons or even a Pelican.

Hopefully Halo 6 implements something like this
Whoa that Warden idea is epic. It would insane to see Warden transform into a jet or something and then fight him in phaetons.
I don't remember one in ODST.
Scarabs returning to Halo 6 would be awesome. My favourite memories from all the halo campaigns was mission 8 (the covenant) in halo 3, where you could drive a warthog filled with marines off a cliff and onto a scarab tank, and proceed to utterly destroy said scarab tank.

Your grandpa is a good man.

It was when you went down in the sewers I believe. Or the underground floor. You had to escort someone.
there was a Kraken
If there was a reason why the scarab never came back, then I guess it would be out of the game. However if there is a Kraken and a Harvester (That doesn't even move or do anything) then there should be a scarab in the storm covenants arsenal somewhere. But I would want a scarab fight that can't be boarded and Battle of Noctus would make so much sense because of the size of the map. Maybe a PvE gametype. Fighting scarabs was so much fun.

Can't agree more
Well we had a kraken fight, but it was quite simple, so as the Halo 2 scarab fight. Also i don't like the halo 3 scarab fights, in Halo 2 the scarab can't jus be destroyed that easely.
