Halo Reach with Master Chief

Recommended Posts

Recently I was playing Halo Reach and wondered what Master Chief was doing through all this. Reach is my favorite game of the series, due to the darker storyline and lots of emotion from all the characters. But I really think that it would be fun to have another game on Reach, but with the Chief. I know lots of people that would have loved to see a game like this, because they didn't care about Noble Team. So what do you guys think? Halo Reach: Master Chief? I would definitely buy it. It might make Master Chief feel more connected with the Halo universe during Combat Evolved if we saw him before any of the original trilogy happened. It'd also be nice to see how Noble Team's fight truly allowed the Chief to win the war. I'd like to hear some opinions about this because I think it'd be very fun.

It's all detailed in the Halo Book series what he does. In fact, Halo Reach actually rewrote a good portion of Halo lore. The Pillar of Autumn was in space the entire time, and was defending a space station, which Master Chief was on, and they left when Reach was fallen. Frankly, He didn't do all that much during Reach.

Read: "The Fall of Reach". It is a good book and details what the Chief is doing during the events of Halo Reach.

Actually the Fall of Reach and Halo Reach have been merged as one by Bungie. :(
 
So here is what happened with both of those being combined. warning a lot of writing.

By 2552, many of Humanity's Inner colonies have been destroyed by the Covenant. In a move of desperation, ONI Section 3 orders the execution of a secret plan to capture a Covenant ship using the Spartans. The ship would be taken to the Covenant home world in order to capture a Prophet and then use the Prophet as a bargaining chip to negotiate a truce.

Every remaining Spartan-II - with the exceptions of Gray Team, Kurt-051, Jorge-052, Maria-062, the original Red Team, and Black Team - boards a specially outfitted Halcyon-class light cruiser known as the UNSC Pillar of Autumn, which is under the command of Captain Jacob Keyes. The Pillar of Autumn moves out towards the edges of the system to make a Slipspace jump to begin the mission.

This plan, however, is interrupted when a massive Covenant fleet of 314 ships enters the Epsilon Eridani System. Captain Keyes orders the Pillar of Autumn back towards Reach, but John-117 convinces him to allow the Spartans to continue their mission by finding a damaged Covenant ship to capture and take to Covenant space. Reach's fleet, with about a hundred ships and twenty Orbital Defense Platforms on hand, engages the Covenant fleet, but takes massive losses. However, the Super MAC platforms manage to repulse the initial Covenant assault.

The Covenant return and land troops on Reach with the objective of destroying the generators for the Super MACs, the only things which are stopping the Covenant. At the same time, the UNSC realizes that the UNSC Circumference, a Prowler, is still docked at a station orbiting the planet of Reach just before its fall and has not initiated the Cole Protocol. John takes Linda and James to deal with the Circumference, while the rest of the Spartans are sent down to the planet to defend the MACs' power generators.

John's team crash-land their Pelican on the station which the Circumference is docked on and move towards the NAV data. However, James' thruster pack is hit by a Needler shard and explodes, sending James flying uncontrollably into space, where he presumably dies. John and Linda proceed to the Circumference, where they find Sergeant Johnson and his Marines, including Jenkins and Bisenti, also fighting to wipe the data. With John's help, the Marines are successful, but Linda is shot by five separate plasma blasts. The humans fall back to the Autumn; Linda is clinically dead because of the extensive wounds she receives, but is placed in a cryotube in the hope that she can be resuscitated. John then puts himself in cryosleep shortly afterwards. 
 
Doctor Halsey then contacts Pillar of Autumn and tells Keys about the fragment for Cortana she still has and how it could save humanity with the data it has ( on the Halo rings ) Keys agrees and takes the ship back into orbit to a dock near castle base to wait for Noble team and to make much needed repairs on the ship. Noble team soon arrives the fragment of Cortana is delivered onto the ship before it escaped back into orbit.

The surface of Reach is overrun. The Spartans who John sent to the surface are presumably overrun and all slaughtered. Without the generators, the Super MACs fall silent and are destroyed by the Covenant, who soon begin glassing the planet. The remaining UNSC ships are almost all destroyed in the battle as they try to escape. Meanwhile the Pillar of Autumn, manages to break though the Covenant fleet as Cortana plotted an exit vector in compliance with the Cole Protocol, though not completely at random. She now joined up with her fragment from Noble team had decrypted Forerunner glyphs found by John-117 on Sigma Octanus IV. The NAV coordinates led the Pillar of Autumn to what the Covenant had been searching for: Halo, an extremely sacred Forerunner artifact. The ship then goes into slip space towards installation 04.

Halo: The Fall of Reach doesn't match up with the time line of the Reach video game. Do you think 343 could make a game that might fix that? It wouldn't match up with the book, but it would connect all the games. I'm just throwing out ideas because I would really like to play as Master Chief on Reach

What would be nice is if we saw the events of Halo: The Fall of Reach unfold in first-person. Like you start out as a 6-year old and stuff, but then you get older, and in first-person mode you get injected with the Spartan serum, and then you go to fight a bunch of Insurgents, and you plant a HAVOK nuclear bomb on a Covenant ship, and you fight the Covenant on SIgma Octanus with your squad. And then you go on Reach for a little bit attempting to save Reach. You fight wave after wave of Covenant, but then you and your comrades go to destroy the UNSC Circumference while rescuing Sgt. Johnson and his marines so you can blow up the Circumference because they have not engaged the Cole Protocol.

 

Linda is clinically dead, and James is truly MISSING IN ACTION. And you witness the other UNSC ships get blown up by the Covenant and you see them glass Reach. You go inside your Cryotube and go to sleep.

 

After this happens, Cortana shows Captain Keyes the coordinates to Installation 04 the Halo ring, an extremely sacred Forerunner artifact to the Covenant.

 

This would be a great game... at least to connect Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary a little better with this.

 

One thing though.

 

The weapons that would be used would be the Battle Rifle (not the DMR mind you), the M90 CAWS shotgun, the MA5B Assault Rifle, the M7 SMGS, and much more that the UNSC used during the Fall of Reach (that's sourced in the book) this would also include the MA5K as well too.

Master Chief can't be in all the games. We need other heroes. I liked Halo Reach because there was different heroes with emotional times. If anything, I think they should make more games like Halo Reach.

Master chief is in HALO REACH, he just didnt show up because he

was in the pillar of autom.

 

 

FACT

Master chief was in the pillar of autumn while the event of reach was going on noble teams task was to protect the pillar of autumn.

 

I'm pretty sure he ment if there could be a game where either play as or alongside Chief. I know he was on the last cutscene for like 3 seconds, but I don't think that counts.
