saw a thread that mentioned spartans vs rc's and was gonna comment on it but some1 closed the thread :( anyway I think ppl missed the fact that originally the spartans were supposed to be deployed in squads when the spartan II project first came to be. a four man spartan squad vs a four man rc squad would definitely be an interesting fight and I think that whoever won would have have to be extremely dependent on luck and looking for one mistake that the others might make.
if u wanna talk about a 1o1 fight then think about master chief vs null before you think about the rc's. nulls have a lot more independence and initiative

honestly i think it would really depend on the situation...both are really good at what they do...the only difference between Spartans and Clones is that Clones age faster cause of what the Kaminoans did with their genes...

Well now it's tripple posting, rofl. :xp: Use edit.

Personally I think if Commandos had all the weapons they could use at clone wars vs Spartans. Greeks would be pwnt. They had no ranged weapons to start with... then, they had no future tactics, which probably were way more effective than phalanx...

Good luck in predicting next time :P. Well but if it was one squad vs 300 spartans.. they might run out of ammo... then the stairs starts :) .

They don't age fast after they've grown to full maturity, that was just a way to breed a large army very fast.

And Commandos would win, and they would win easily if I was playing them.

It all depends on what weps the spartans have. I mean, if they had H1 Assault rifle or a plasma pistol, they're screwed.

02-22-2008, 09:50 PM
yeah but in all honesty who would try to play h1 spartans against rc's??? I'd put the H2 Spartans and weapons against rc's. both games came out around the same time...

As far as I know, The chief only regenerates his shields, but I only have Halo 1, but then the Spartans and RC are fairly matched.
I wish the chief was in SSBB, which comes out this weekend! w00t! w00t!

First off I love Republic Commando, it was a game SW needed to have and need to continue.

Here is my opinion, Commandos operate as a team and MasterChief is the lone soldier (not good to hang around with). I personally like the Tom Clancy like gameplay. Now if it was a one on one, I would bet money on the Commando
Armaments:
Commando:Blaster, Grenade Launcher, Sniper rifle and a pistol. Then the optional fifth weapon. Flashbangs (love those), dentanators(?), the ECs, and those remote grenades. And all of the wonderful trap mines (limited to only how many barrels are around.

Masterchief: (Can only carry two weapons and eight grenades) I would say he would carry a battle rifle and a SMG.

Now already the Commando has more firepower than MasterChief. But wait MasterChief was trained since he was six. I do not know his age but I would say about 20 years. The Commado was trained for ten years and then gained another two years with the Clone Wars.

Now there is hand to hand combat, MC does the hit with whatever is in his hands. While the Commandos have that knife. Which does major damage to regular troops. So in hand to hand I would have to go for Commando, he can swing that knife faster than MC swings his weapon.

Now the COs weapons are electric (plasma like aspect with the electrons) so MCs shield will be drained quickly. And with a remote mine this fight would be over quickly. Now MCs weapons are projectile which are not that effective against shields, which means more shots and more exposure to the COs fire as well.

Honestly if MC had an advantage over a CO the CO will have enough firepower to keep MC at bay while he waits for his shields recharge.

it you seriously think a commando would win, then you haven't played much halo. The alien you fight fight in halo are like eight feet tall; were the aliens in commando[except for super battle droid] are five feet tall. and that weapon choice sucks also, If he has a sword then the commando is screwed, plus fire granades and other new crap from halo three.

also spartans were trained to work as a team, it just so happened that the spartan base on reach got pearl harbored.

Gen. Cockaroach
03-11-2008, 08:14 PM
I own Halo 1 and Halo 2 and beat both games about a dozen times each on legendary. I know all of the weapons and Aliens in those games.

And guess what, there is only one spartan in the games (I haven't read the books for I am not that addicted to the storyline of Halo) so there is no team and Masterchief is an individual fighter.

MC with a sword eh? I personally hate the sword but I know its capabilities and say that a sniper round to a head would end or some remote grenades. For Masterchief needs to get close and that would be difficult. Remember the Commandos also carry a grenade launcher that is almost like a rocket launcher vs Sword.

What is every one talking about, master cheif is all.....bio-augumented.. he could kill a squad of clone commandos by just punchin them in the face!i'd like to see their little laser wind shield wipers try to clean that off :)LOL. but any way chief got years of experience while da clones got like simulaters. the one thing they got in common is being trained from childhood.. the difference is that clones got like 9 years of training and cheifs got like 30..... guess my anwser to which will win lol

RC-1183
09-20-2008, 08:31 PM
but still the master chief is a one man army meaning hes a run-and-gun guy no strategic advantage when your outnumbered the rcs however use squad tactics and manuvering skills also the chief is only as strong as he is because of the bio-agumentation without that he would be pretty much just a well trained soldier

By the same token, without strategy and and squad tactics, the Republic Commandos are just well-trained soldiers.

Neither will win, because of how ludicrous the situation is.

True... so true. Its kind of like SEAL teams they are only 4 guys but they can take down and army... i mean look at the book Lone Survivor... thanks to their training they killed around a few thousand taliban terrorists... augmentation doesn't matter its like what Psyco said... training is the key to success...

Astor

Then without such augmentation, the clones won't even exist. Or did you forget that little fact while trying to espouse the supremacy of the RCs once again?

Kalonus

I hate doing this.

You can’t compare the two games together because there is no way to assume how the different game play elements would work out together e.g. weapon damage and so forth.

You have to compare them by the books and of course you’re going to get conflicts there as well. Neither author would falter the skill of there chosen warriors.

Hypothetically speaking of course if you were to place four non specific Spartans in a cage with four non specific republic commandos then I put my money on the genetically superior, highly trained, super soldiers that can punch through a mans head.

09-23-2008, 07:36 PM
Ok kid i've read the books and the RCs still would win... augmentation doesn't help someone win a battle, fight, war, etc. Its there training. Yes the clones were augmented but not in the same case as MC. In the books MC nearly dies about 3 or 4 times hes not some invincible god ok... just cuz halo is a more popular topic doesn't mean that the MC is better. And as we've said this topic has been discussed already. We are now just beating a dead horse farther into the ground...

Cloning is augmentation - it's the creation of life through artificial means. Therefore, by removing augmentation from the discussion, you've just removed one half of the fight.

09-25-2008, 11:55 AM
Why because the one advantage Spartans had over the clones has now been given to the clones.
Fine let’s give both groups the same equipment, no armour no guns just a combat knife. You want to square the field then let’s. All that’s left is their ability to work as a team and their basic training.
I’ll still put my money on the Spartans.

RC-1183
09-25-2008, 11:59 AM
okthen you get a field that has a lake trees open areas and the like then Master Chief gets:no armor(that means no cortana), a magnum, and a combat knife the Republic Commandos get: no armor(that means no comlink or sensors), DC-15 sidearm(pistol), and a vibro blade and lets see who wins i say rcs anyone else

Kalonus
09-25-2008, 12:08 PM
4 on 1 isn’t a fair playing field, and a gun that never runs out of ammo isn’t a fair playing field either.
That’s why I said. 4 non specific Spartans vs 4 non specific Republic commandos, place them in a circular arena with a basic combat knife each, no vibro weapons. Then it’s a fair field of play.

Astor

That’s not how levelling the playing field works. And simply declaring your side the victor is *not* being subjective. Because none of you seem to be able to play fair, we’ll do it like this:

Right. We have two sides, with four on each side (noting that the thread is titled Spartans vs RCs, not Master Chief versus RCs). For the purposes of this discussion, the clones are not a ‘named’ squad (so no Delta Squad) and none of the Spartans are special either (So no Johnson or Master Chief).

So, four Clone Commandos on one team, and four Spartan soldiers on another.

Equipment: No special equipment from either respective universe. For the purposes of this fair, balanced comparison, they will ALL receive a combat knife, an M-16 assault rifle, and a Colt 1911. They will also carry walkie-talkies. No armour, so no sensors, or any special gadgets that anyone could exploit.

Terrain: a flat, featureless plain – no terrain whatsoever for either side to take advantage of.

Each team will begin roughly 200 meters away.

Round 1

Each team sees people in the distance. The respective leaders of each team decide to send one person as a point man, to recce the other team, while they advance slowly. Point men advance quickly, closing to a closer visual range. No combat in this round.

Round 2

The teams are now closing with each other. The two point men can see each other clearly now. To their eyes, they see hostiles approaching. The Spartan radios to his squad that hostiles are approaching, before drawing a bead on his enemy.

The Clone, however, fires without hesitation, and two rounds are placed squarely in the Spartan’s chest as he tried to aim.

Tally: RCs – 4 Spartans – 3.

Round 3

Now, things are a little uneven. The Spartans, rankled at the loss of one of their own, now lay down fire on the Clone point man. The two teams are now approximately 75 meters apart now, well within range for a shooting match.

A single clone hangs back, to provide covering fire for his comrades as they try to check on their brother. He manages to cripple one Spartan with a couple of shots to the knees and hands. He’s now out of action.

Tally: RCs – 3 Spartans – 2.

Round 4

The Clones are now close enough to the Spartans that they have clear shots at them. One clone falls under concentrated fire from the two remaining Spartans. The other takes a wound in the leg, but is still capable of fighting.

The Clone hanging back now runs closer to the fight, firing as he goes. All shots go wide, and it’s the same with the wounded clone as he tries to stay upright.

Tally: RCs – 2 Spartans – 2

Round 5

The Spartans begin to move closer, to observe their wounded enemy. One is taken down by the advancing clone, but not before he manages to fatally wound the advancing clone.

The remaining, wounded, clone, and the solitary Spartan each draw knives and prepare to enter a melee…

Tally: RCs – 1 Spartans – 1

Round 6

Knife fight! The two remaining combatants circle each other, before closing in for a bloody, furious close quarters brawl. Knife slashes here, gut punches there.

They each manage to score hits on their opponents, with both wounded quite seriously. Whoever wins now doesn’t have much to celebrate about, as they soon succumb to their equally fatal wounds…

Tally: RCs – 0 Spartans – 0

RESULT: Draw

Y'see, it's really not that difficult to be subjective. :)

And given that we now have a precedent for the situation with standardised equipment, it probably wouldn't be all that different if each side had their equipment...

Simple enough, I replace 'clone' with 'Imperial' :xp:

or wat if they switched equipment like the spartans use rc weaponry and the rcs use spartan weaponry

Disfamiliarity would play a large part, but I think the outcomes would be about the same in most situations.

Round 6

Knife fight! The two remaining combatants circle each other, before closing in for a bloody, furious close quarters brawl. Knife slashes here, gut punches there.

They each manage to score hits on their opponents, but then a Jedi comes in and slashes both across the chest, scoring a double kill!

Tally: RCs – 0 Spartans – 0, Jedi - 2

RESULT: Jedi pwned both!

How's this:
Terrain: A deep valley 5 km long with steep cliff walls on both sides as well as a number of boulders of varying size that act to break the sight line as well as provide cover. Each team starts at one end.

Outcome: Sev fires a ascension cable and climbs 40 meters up the cliff wall while Boss, Fixer, and Scorch kick back and have a cup of caf. While Sev finds a suitable ledge and attaches the sniper attachment to his DC-17 the spartans begin doing what they do best "jumping" over boulders. Sev blows the head off all four Spartans at the apex of their jump (four shots four kills) and then climbs down to join the others for a drink.

If Anyone Still Thinks That Someone Will Win, Refer To Astor's Explaination. They're Both Super Soldiers, But If They Have Nothing Special And Have Same Weaponry, It WILL Be A Draw. There Is NO Possibility Of Someone Actually Winning The Fight Because They Are Trained Just As Well, Fight Just As Well, And Are Made For The Same Reason.
