Welp it's Rapture Day... for the Covenant! Welcome back Chief!
Now before you all start yelling at me about how inaccurate his suit is please hear me out... I based it off the bastardization I drew back on page 1.
Here is as good a time to make this official as any - Chief isn't wearing Mark VI armor in this comic. He's wearing something like a MarkV.5. I decided this probably 200 pages ago.
It looks very much like Mark VI armor someone (me six years ago) was too lazy to pull up a reference for. It was designed with ease in mind - it can fit in a locker, it can be lifted by an average human, it can be removed without the aid of a robot... It's my fancy schmancy convenience suit. The plot device model.
And obviously it was not deemed a success because we're right back to the tougher model in Halo2. I'd like to think this tiny battle here is it's trial by fire. Chief wouldn't prize convenience over safety, we all know this.
There, that'll answer all the questions and complaints about how inconsistent i've been with halo tech hahahaha!
Let the bloodbath commence.
