Actually many things in this are facts or misunderstood facts.
Actually i dont think that spartans really needed the marines but they can be VERY helpfull.

Marines are basically mobile targets that draw fire from the master chief.

On legendary, marines last longer than the chief himself, so yeah, they are pseudo back ups

I concur, but Spartan required the marines for basic intel on the enemy, and to send him venicles on the field.
Besides, Spartan has a cool chic in his head

So Clone commandos require clones pilots to drop off vehicles. if you think about it the laat transpot model is similar to the pelican. they both have the vehilce in the back/near back and hold on to it simalarly. And clones for intel. (but sometimes they use better sources called jedi lol)Commandos and spartans dont need the vehicles but use them because it makes things easier. it would have been a nice thing to have drivable vehicles in RC huh?

Yeah, the only vehicles that I've heard of commandos using is that big excavation droid from Hard Contact.

You can't judge things based on game difficulty. If Trando Heavy Mercs were smart in game, they would rip Delta Squad apart without a sweat. Instead, they stare at you for five seconds, fire in bursts, and when they get hurt they can't fire.


My sig is stupid.

They can't shoot you when you're behind cover, when you're playing smart, like a commando.

Hehe, but that's just the thing! You can sit behind cover and just snipe them in the head, and they don't do anything. Commandos have it easy

yeah it does...

and if you are going for the enemy intelligence part, the covenant would rip earth a new one if only they were smarter. One nice sword lunge with invisibility would tear a spartan apart, if they had tactical intelligence... even those little grunts on legendary can kick a spartans ass WHILE laughing his ass off.

besides trandoshians are notoriously known to being stupid anyway. Like the halos hunters. Its easier to kill both twins than ONE shock elite with dual plasma rifles.

Keyes vs cody? imo, no contest. keyes was one of the best starfleet captains around, and could easily hold his own in a firefight, as proven in the rescue mission on halo 1. Cody? what, a guy who blindly follows orders, can't think freely and would get his ass whipped in a space manouver battle by keyes? nu-uh, its another win for halo.

Banshee vs droid starfighter? the DS can travel much faster than the banshee, has slightly more offensive and accurate weapons AND the pilot's generally don't fly into trees... So SW wins that one.

Pillar of Autumn vs venator class? whilst not knowing much about the latter's firepower, i would guess that the venator would win this one, mainbly due to the fact that the pillar of autumn wasnt designed primarily as an attack vessel, more a reconnaisance as such. so id say that the venator would win this one.

I meant Cody versus Keyes in hand-to-hand combat. But I only suggested it because Cody would blatantly win

Even though Keyes is skilled, he hasn't gone through the training that Cody has, and Keyes doesn't have nearly as much equipment or armor. Cody is a frontline commander. Keyes stands on the bridge of a ship and orders his Lieutenants around, lol. I think that Cody would win.

I saw a wookie flatting a manga guard, but hunters would be a chalenge to a wokkie warrior.
But if a wokkie has that rocket launcher in both hands, well it would be a quick funeral for the hunter.
BUT WE ARE OFF TOPIC!!!

It's totally worth it. Gameplay is short and multiplayer sucks, but I played it over and over again.

wookies are a little more nimble, and thats whats required to kill a hunter, just get behind them, shoot em with an explosive tipped bowcaster bolt on the unarmored part and the job is done. Wookies are like smart gorillas and hunters are stupid bigger gorillas.

Yeah, they are pretty evenly matched. In a long run, the hunter would win with his armor and gun (to hit with, not to shoot), when a Wookiee has only his fists. I'm sure the fight would be pretty long, though.

Without armor/weapons, I say wookiee. With armor/weapons, probably hunter. They've just got so much armor, but it would still be possible for a wookiee to win.

it depends. do you actually know what a hunter is? althopugh it may spoil the image...
(from joyridestudios.com)
"Hunters are not in fact a single entity, but rather a gestalt "hive" of little-understood wormlike creatures. Assembling as a cooperative mass, they inhabit the Hunter armor in a powerful bipedal form, with its massive shield and integrated plasma cannon. Their distributed organic structure makes them extraordinarily difficult to kill, and their amassed strength makes them one of the most formidable creatures ever encountered in the Human/Covenant war. They are intelligent, fearless and above all, deadly.

Their protective armor is articulated to allow for the complex organism to move, and these articulations provide the only real weak point in their defenses. "
So without the armour, there is no hunter :P

Without no hunter, the wookiee wins by default.
