So I was playing Truth and Reconciliation mission in H:CE and I was at the beginning when you’re moving through the desert area and there was one part where I jumped off a ledge to the ground below and died. I dismissed it as fall damage is just a fact of life in gaming, but today I was thinking about the halo books and it’s occured to me: in the halo book First Strike, Fred and about 27 other Spartans bail out of a pelican and fall from Reach’s upper atmosphere to the ground. Their augmentations and armor allow them to survive this fall with only few causalities. So, why is it that a 10 meter fall from that cliff would kill Master Chief??????? Yes, the book came out after but bungie actually had a surprising amount of lore including Mjolnir armor capabilities written down prior to the games release. So, why do y’all think they decided to add fall damage to CE, and why didn’t they remove it in anniversary, long after the book had released??
Fall damage shouldn’t exist
