If the Arbiter does come back in Halo 5, what, if any, role do you think he will have in the campaign?

I think he could be a non-playable character that partners with Chief in certain missions

Well, I don't know. He could be playable or non-playable, we'll see about that.

I just want him to play an actual role in the game, not like how H3 used him...

 

In H3 he just sit in the side lines and pretty much was just with Chief just because.... :) I mean what did he actually say or do in H3? Almost nothing.

I don't think leading the Covenant Separatists, and killing the source of all his problems is nothing. It just seemed that way because he didn't have much to say. He knew his goal and what he had to do and got the job done, without much chatter, at least until near the end. I wouldn't say that he did almost nothing when humanity would have been vanquished without him and what he did.

With that said, he was in the background too much in Halo 3, and he needs to be less of support and more of his own guy again like in Halo 2. I also hope that since you will probably not be playing as Arbiter, that if you do Co-op the second character acts as him.

Arby was there for co op..... what did he contribute to the story? or even say? like one line at the start and that is about it....

 

 

he was a awful hollow pointless character and a wasted one at that. :)

The Arbiter provided an incredible amount of insight into the workings of the Covenant. He assisted master Chief more than once in Halo 2 and 3 and proved to be a valuable asset after the UNSC-Covenant war by mediating peace. Just because he didn't become a one-man army like Chief doesn't mean he was a "hollow, pointless, and wasted" character.

I think he'll be an allied NPC, though I'd prefer if you could play as him on certain missions. I liked the character ever since the first time I saw videos of Halo 2 on Youtube.

No, Arby was interesting in Halo 2 never taken to his full potential but still interesting, he provided us insight in the Covenant. :)

 

Now you cannot defend Arbiter in Halo 3, he has no point in begin there are said before, he has so few lines, fewer than Master chief himself!

 

What meaningful thing does he do apart from shake Lord hoods hand? What does he contribute to the story?

 

Nothing, he was a wasted hollow character in Halo 3 and just seemed to be there because, he was in Halo 2 with no real reason why he was there.

I don't see how someone full of hate and anger, and the longing for revenge against the source of that hate is a hollow character. I also have listed what he did, and every bit of it was meaningful. I don't see how any of what he did in Halo 3 was meaningless.

I've seen 4 elites in co-op few times around in 2008. It was fun. Arby was there for co-op, I'm glad he was. It was cool to be him! What if there was a female one like arby? :o

I think it's most likely for him to return in Halo 5, judging by the trailer shown at E3 this year. He could be Player 2 like how it was back in Halo 3. I'm sure he'll play a pretty big role in Halo 5 because of how long it's been since him and the Chief have worked together and the formation of the Covenant Remnant, also known as the Storm Covenant. I'm pretty sure he's still leading the Sangheili so we'll be seeing more of them too.

In all honesty, I can not say what role the Arbiter will play in Halo 5: Guardians. He could be helping Agent Locke, Agent Locke could be looking for the Arbiter, Agent Locke could be trying to kill the Arbiter or Agent Locke and the Arbiter are going to find Master Chief. It really is impossible to say right now.

You are missing my point.....

 

 

What did he even do in Halo 3! Besides tagging along with Master chief for no good reason, he had less lines than the Chief himself. :)

What did you want him to do? Talk more? If you had a problem with him not speaking, then that's one thing. That does not however mean he didn't do anything, because he did! If that's not it then I just don't get your point, I'm sorry.

He was with chief to protect earth (mostly because Truth was on Earth) and when they we're on the ark his goals were kill Truth, and stop the flood on Installation 4B. Stopping the flood, and killing your most hated enemy is no good reason?

I kind of agree with Caboose here. I mean, I think allies don't really "kill" enemies unless they attack them for a long time. I know he kills the Prophet of Truth, but anything "exciting" that he does is in cutscenes, not in actual gameplay.

I just have to point this out..... Why was Arbiter even cloaking at the start of Halo 3 when he was right next to Chief? :)
 

Anyway, back on topic....

 

My problem is that Arbiter had no reason to be with Chief the whole way though, shouldn't he be leading his people in a time of crisis!?

 

He didn't even do anything during the game but walk with Chief and shoot stuff.....

 

Yep... hollow character 101.....
