This slipped in fairly quietly. Like the additions. It seems weapons are the focus for now, looking forward to more.

I believe the only 'on-going section' would be characters, events and locations... while vehicles, tech, factions, species and weapons can reach at metaphorical end point, to which, the only new additions is what is ultimately new to the franchise...

Well new types of the existing vehicles/weapons would be a nice edition. I mean sizes and descriptions for them all would be different xD

One thing that would of been a nice touch would be to say what game the said thing appears in. And what version of it does.

Don't forget some variants are books-only... Halo: Ghosts of Onyx.
I particularly like the Plasma Pistol article, it gives an interesting explanation for the variants of Covenant weapons that we see in each game.

I never knew it was that big... 14 inchs!? Thats almost the size of a sub machine gun Uzi? Now I know why Evan Phillips need two hands to wield the damn thing...
There should be a separate section for ships! And where is the like article for canon fodder?

Apologies about undermining your community feature Grim, thought posts are released every Friday week, so I didn't know if you may have missed this week?
Oh and four new entries... guess the MA5 Assault Rifle, was already existant.

The amount of teases in that article was uncalled for :P
I wonder what dates could be important to Halo 5? Maybe related to Iso Didact?
And can you Brother Grim or Catalog confirm that the bird in the Halo 5: Guardians trailer is a War Sphinx or Seeker?
Ahhh, date. Yay the canon fodder is here. I've been waiting for it! Keep it up! Nice teases.
We should have a poll on which characters/weapons/locations/events we wanna hear about in the next Canon Fodder.
We should have a poll on which characters/weapons/locations/events we wanna hear about in the next Canon Fodder.

That is what I said, a voting system, to get the community engaged more...

The poll would have a certain theme and consist of four to five possible entries which open the friday of each week; each entry would have a possible one of three results... which is voted by the public community. This way 343 Industries could pre-create the additions and add them when they wish, while the community votes for the most wanted ones.

You have No clue how excited i was when i saw AdjutantReflexi was like those memories. I was like yes IRIS 2.0?
I know what I'd like to see entries on in the Universe section- The shipwreck on I04, the Path Kenona galaxy, and further details on Forerunner ship types.

GrimBrother One, it's cool that you kept OP's thread going and made it official- That's the kind of community interaction we love!

Hey, Catalog, if you're around, please conduct [investigative queries] into the [bureaucratic] reasons behind [entertainment media] Spartan Strike's [continued delayed distribution] by 343 Industries and lack of communication on the subject... If possible, obtain confirmation of release date.
Many thanks!
