Hi everyone, Spartan here with site poll #66.


 


 


Last week the Elites and Brutes went head-to-head as we compared thoughts and preferences on the two races. With two votes each, it came out as a tie. Click here to view the last poll, #65.

What's your favourite armour?


 


 


Armour is essential for warfare. Without it, casualties will soar. Almost all armed infantry is seen to have armour, but to narrow things down we'll only be focussing on wearable sets in the games. Yes, that does mean the legendary Elite councillor and honour guard armour sets cannot be chosen.


 


For the first two Halo games we're restricted to Mark V, Mark VI, and Elite Minor armour. Halo 3 changed things drastically by introducing what are now classic sets of MJOLNIR and Elite armour. Then Halo: Reach added a much larger variety of Mark V sets, as well as more Elite armour. Halo 4 and 5 saw the introduction of many GEN2 MJOLNIR variants, now in use by supposedly all Spartans. Halo 2: Anniversary also revealed some never-before-seen GEN1 Mark VI variants, and a couple of Elite armour sets.


 


Out of all available armour sets to don, Spartan and Elite, which is your favourite? Why?


 


Looking forward to hearing your thoughts,


Spartan out.    :yay:

Why not the best of both worlds? My vote is for Helioskrill, representing the culmination of Sangheili and human cooperation. 

 

 

(Plus it goes with War Master really, really well. I mean...Damn...)

I don't restrict myself to having singular favorites since I like most of the armor. The configuration of my armor changes depending on my tastes at that time.

Oh, gosh, so many choices!

In terms of the overall sort of aesthetic, I maintain that the more 'classic' armours are the best - especially when they're scaled up to modern standards or rendered in CGI, as with Halo 2: Anniversary and the Halo Wars cutscenes. The Mark IV in particular just looks absolutely gorgeous, and the version found in Halo 5 is one of the only armours in that game which I really like. Overall, it's almost certainly my favourite armour, though I do also have a fondness for the ordinary Mark V variants found in Reach.
 
On the topic of Reach, I have to admit I really didn't like the style of the armours there when it came out, but it's grown on me since then. I still feel the proportions are a tad wonky, as they feel more like soldiers and less like supersoldiers (the male models feel excessively bulky), but the overall style is good, and there are a few really good looking bits. Generally I'm not really fond of the stuff that came afterward, with a few exceptions (The CE:A Mark V armour and its Halo 4 variant, for example), as for the most part they feel more anime than armour.
 
So overall, my absolute favourite armour would probably be something like this: the up-armoured Mark V helmet from Reach, the shoulders from Halo 4's Mark V, and the torso, gauntlets, and greaves from Halo 5's Mark IV, which I've handily rebuilt in XCom 2!
