Hunters. This was the most requested one on the previous comp.. Hunters always reminded me of Rahkshi from Bionicle. This really takes it a step further in the similarity hunters Halo comp lekgolo

That is a type of infected animal.

Nope, it's a flood pure form, take it from someone who's clocked a few hundred days total on Halo 3, campaign and multiplayer.
User avatar #45 to #39 - giveupnow (05/04/2014) [-]
It is also called the thrasher form.
User avatar #44 to #39 - commontroll (05/04/2014) [-]
That's not a hunter. Notice the lack of armor. It's a Pure Form Flood. They can shape shift.
#46 to #39 - sptnfouroneseven ONLINE (05/04/2014) [-]
Flood Pure-form brute. Not an infected hunter. Flood take control of the central nervous system of it's 'host' and implants itself, giving it the fungus like look to it.

duuuude ****** Rahkshi, I think those were my favorite as a kid
#121 to #120 - linkedgamr ONLINE (05/04/2014) [-]
Definitely the best. Them and the Bohrok were the best enemies. For some reason I always called the Bohrok "brorock". They weren't bros, they were assholes.
User avatar #122 to #121 - thepandaking (05/04/2014) [-]
haha those were definitely my two favorite, for some reason I liked the rahkshi and the bohrok more than the actual bionicles, I think I only ever liked the earth one and maybe ice one.
User avatar #123 to #122 - linkedgamr ONLINE (05/04/2014) [-]
I always liked Lewa (air) after the Mask of Light movie because of how he always used two adjectives or adverbs to describe something. "We must move quick-fast". Tahu (fire) was a cunt and Gali (water) seemed so boring. Cant remember much about Pohotu (rock) Onua (earth) and Kopaka (Ice). Kopaka Nuva's mask looked rad though.
User avatar #124 to #123 - thepandaking (05/04/2014) [-]
yeah kopaka nuva was when I started to like him, but hoooly crap you brought back memories. Onua, I forgot his name. damn. actually Lewa was my first bionicle ever, from the first set of them, but yea tahu was full of **** , gali had no personality, pohotu was weird to me, and yeah I guess lewa and onua were my favorite. I think I only didn't like kopaka because he was a little bit of a jerk in the movie, I don't really remember but I think he didn't want to work with them or something.

There was a Spartan who once dropped a hunter with his bare hands more or less. He died in the process. If I remember correctly he had been ripped open by a needler and and biofoam was holding his insides together prior to this fight. ( don't quote me on that part) I just remember him rushing the hunter to buy time for his friends and he rammed his fist through the stomach of the Hunter and then the hunter blasted him with it's cannon and they were both disintegrated.

ghost of onyx one of the petty officer william-043 a spartan 2 stayed behind to slow down the covenant so the rest of the remaining spartan 3s,2s, petty officer mendez, and halsey could escape into a forunner dyson sphere basically a seperate space from normal space he bum rushed a hunter and ended up ripping out enough of the legkolo to kill it the rest of the covenant stop at amazement at a feat such as this the hunters bond brother though enraged discharged his plasma cannon into will's chest melting his armor and killing him he is the only human to ever take on a hunter in hand to hand combat and win I beleive the biofoam and needler bit is part of a spartan 3s death

Dante was the Spartan III who was hit by a needler.
User avatar #30 to #29 - zerpderp (05/04/2014) [-]
yeah the spartan 3s where tough ******* their armor was nowhere near as good as spartan 2s but they could take more of a beating and where faster,easier, and cheaper to produce basically earlier versions of spartan IV though i hate it when people compair the IVs to IIs though i wish they'd have more info on spartan ones
User avatar #34 to #30 - mcknyte (05/04/2014) [-]
AFAIK there is no such thing as a Spartan-I. The program was initially called the Apollo program, which attempted genetic manipulation on existing combat veterans. But since the veterans were too old for the manipulation to be properly effective, many wound up with mechanical prosthetics and most suffered severe side effects. It wasn't until Dr. Halsey had the idea of indoctrinating children into the program that the name was changed from Apollo to Spartan. The resulting troops were referred to as Spartan-IIs to acknowledge the first generation of Apollos.
User avatar #36 to #34 - nathanbiggs ONLINE (05/04/2014) [-]
It was called the Orion Project, not the Apollo.
User avatar #37 to #36 - mcknyte (05/04/2014) [-]
My mistake, thought it didn't sound right.

Thanks for the correction.
User avatar #35 to #34 - zerpderp (05/04/2014) [-]
wouldn't they still be counted as spartan-Is though since the program was changed also might want to go to the halo wiki and change it since they have a article named spartan-1s and Sgt Avery Johnson is listed as a spartan 1
#127 to #28 - swiftshadow (05/04/2014) [-]
Thanks for the clarification. It's been ages since I read Ghosts of Onyx. It is my favorite book in the series that I have gotten around to reading so far with The Cole Protocol in second place.

I think some of my top favorite parts from the series that I have read so far include when the Spartans were put into a cave for training after injuring some ODST members in a scuffle and they managed to find rope and material for uniforms all on their own.

I loved when, I think it was Keyes, (correct me if I am wrong) Dropped one of the Covenant ships by dropping a shiva warhead out the back of the ship, snatched it up in the pull of the moving ship and went around the planet to increase speed and slingshot it at the ship.

and the name of the one ship The U.S.S Two For Flinching.

I hate to point this out but no the hunters were not subjugated by the covenant and are the only race to RESIST it, their planet had many forerunner ruins which the colonies of worms (underground or in the ruins) had nests so they couldn't orbital bombard them, the elites couldn't cover the manpower or cost necessary to actually storm all the nests so they offered the hunters a place in the covenant especially since the hunter worms could excavate forerunner artifacts without damaging them (being worms)
User avatar #20 to #17 - haloexplain (05/04/2014) [-]
The Lekgolo are not the only race to resist it, many of the Kig-Yar resisted being conjoined into a group when they would rather continue their pirating nature. He also forgot to add the reasoning behind the eradication of the Lekgolo being that many of their race devoured forerunner relics.
User avatar #23 to #20 - shadowmaul (05/04/2014) [-]
well the kig yar did eventually fall, they were hard to kill because of having large asteroid bases
User avatar #90 - alucord (05/04/2014) [-]
haloexplain, could you help me out here?

I've never seen any actual confirmation that the hunter worm things control the scarabs, but their weak points show them teeming around in there. I always assumed the scarabs were controlled,but has it been confirmed by canon?
#91 to #90 - auburntigerses (05/04/2014) [-]
Combat scarabs are indeed piloted by lekgolo eels, The scarabs in halo 2 are excavation scarabs, and are piloted by elites and brutes.
#95 to #91 - alucord (05/04/2014) [-]
thanks, that always confused me that some of them were manned, and other wern't
User avatar #130 to #91 - haloexplain (05/06/2014) [-]
Just elites with and Ultra Officer on board. Damn fine job otherwise.
#25 - xcoreyx (05/04/2014) [-]
But I always thought the hunters' guns were a part of their body, which is why you can't pick them up after killing one
#32 to #25 - Dadhhg (05/04/2014) [-]
You would need to somehow fit your hand inside hundreds of tiny nooks and crannies to operate the firing mechanism, only the lekgolo can fit inside it
User avatar #79 - jordoguy (05/04/2014) [-]
I once had a big argument with a friend about the weapon they use, he thought they were giant plasma pistols (because they have to charge up before firing) yet I always thought of them as some variant of the fuel rod cannon, turns out I was right once I actually bothered to look it up yet he still refused to believe it.

3 questions.

What does the Mga part stand for in Mgalekgolo if they are just Lekgolo?
What do Lekgolo's look like as singular beings?
Did you mean, big as in the amount of Lekgolo's in a Mgalekgolo or as an amount of Mgalekgolo in an area? (If it's the first one, is there an estimate or source to tell me what the biggest, smallest Mgalekgolo's can be?)

Bonus question

What do they look like without armour or before they were given said armour? (For fighting Elites)
#73 to #67 - rebaj (05/04/2014) [-]
Here is my opinion I'm no ******* expert but a lekgolo would be like a single "worm like" entity where as a Mgalekgolo would be a unified being. Hence the armour and colony Imagine a single piece of a chain, when it is bound by another they form something better. They may have a limit to how much there can be per colony without compromising too much mass and area. And from the fight with the elites tentacle porn i guess
User avatar #81 to #67 - gildemoono (05/04/2014) [-]
1. I would guess its just their word for unified. Its more symbolic than anything.
2. Really a Lekgolo is just a big orange earthworm.
3. Mgalekgolo split when there are too many lekgolo in the colony. As rebaj said, it has to do with surface area to mass ratios. However, Mgalekgolo can be coerced to take on different sizes. Generally they split when they can form about 2 hunters, but it can be assumed that the covenant are able to persuade them to do otherwise, hunters have been seen that could be described as colossal, the size of tanks. Mgalekgolo can also be formed into different shapes and utilities. For instance the covenant battle tank scarabs, are operated by an integrated mgalekgolo colony.

Scarabs are literally the coolest **** . I remember when I was younger and had just gotten my 360 and a copy of halo 3. Up to that point my only experience with core gaming was halo 2 which had a scripted sequence with one wussy scarab that blew up in a cutscene. But in Halo 3, they just dropped in a scarab and told me to go blow it up. Being like 11 at the time and remembering that even sgt. Johnson hated dealing with these things, I just cowered in a drain pipe for 20 minutes until they told me what to do.

I love the Hunters. Badass mofos who don't take **** from anyone. 'capt when you're playing ODST Firefight and there's 4 of the god damned things. Then I just run em over in a Chopper.

I once killed a Hunter with one pistol shot (first shot) while he faced me Legendary at the Autumn in Halo 1, there was an black elite right next to him at the moment, and he cursed " What the **** ?!" and ran away. Then I knew, I never had to play this game again.
User avatar #76 - vikingfaen (05/04/2014) [-]
**** , I remember when I played Halo 1 every day and I would always get really stressed out on the Island map when these big ************* guarded the doors.
User avatar #71 - zonryu (05/04/2014) [-]

another interesting fact that i found out is that the halo 3/odst (V2) scarabs are also piloted and contoled my lekgolo.

you can see them in the wall with the scarabs weak spot
#26 - cactusupthebutt (05/04/2014) [-]
I always loved the Hunters. I created a 'dance' with them because I always saw them as the better of the covenant.

I would go and start jumping around them with their swings and dance with them. In a lot of ways it was a show of respect for their power.

Don't ask me why, but it's just something I do. My friends don't get it and neither do I. I just do it.
User avatar #80 to #26 - mymommasallama (05/04/2014) [-]
reminds me of a buddy of mine doing his "warthog dance"....although that was just him jumping around where a warthog spawned until it reappeared....
#102 - anon (05/04/2014) [-]
Can you actually make a fact comp about something that isn't ****** shooting games that 12 year olds play?
