"The Master Chief stands about seven feet (2.13 m) tall and weighs 1,000 pounds (450 kg) in armor; without it, he stands six feet, seven inches (2 m) tall and weighs 287 pounds (130 kg)."

you try sprinting carrying 3.4 times your weight all over your body

You can't argue wit video game logic!

While being a valid point, it is POWER armour, its not like its just a dead weight. Plus its powered by some sort of nuclear reactor if I'm correct. The armour enhances all of their abilities, even their speed (The spartans are the only one who can use the suits without shattering their limbs because of the neural speed required to operate one)

I read too much lore.

except the books state that he can sprint 50 mph . I forget how long he can do it for but the fact remains the same, the games make him seem broken

After that info only thing I could've thought was this :
User avatar #144 to #142 - pukingrainbows (10/11/2012) [-]
It was km/h not mph. That's only 33% faster than Usain Bolt sprinting.
#214 to #144 - funnyjunknsfwsecti (10/11/2012) [-]
He's wearing 450kg of armour. It's also Usain ************* Bolt, who can only keep his top speed for about 10 seconds.

Still, You don't go anywhere near that fast in game

Actually, the armor is powered by a mini-nuclear reactor essentially. Were a typical human to wear it, it is responsive enough such that a slight twitch of the finger is enough to cause the suit to move fast and forcefully enough to rip the arm out of its socket or shatter bones. The resulting convulsions causes this to continue until the person is a twisted mass of crushed bones and organs.

So yea, it compensates.
User avatar #147 to #143 - sjsharks (10/11/2012) [-]
if it over compensates that much for low strength, just imagine what it would do for a man with a small penis
User avatar #119 to #96 - theelderscrolls (10/11/2012) [-]
i thought that the suit did most of the work.

i read the books

John beat two ************ ODSTs within an inch of their lives as part of his workout routine. Even without the suits, the Spartans were a force not to be ****** with. The Mjolnir armor does some of the work, but it's still just amplifying 130 kg of rock-hard muscle, Wolverine bones and whoop-ass. And John wasn't even the strong one. One of them (either Fred or Sam) was a full head taller than most of the Spartans. I imagine he could probably bench a Scorpion.

so what about Samus Aran huh, she has huge armor on her and she sprints for miles on end no problem.
#140 to #116 - ninjapleazze (10/11/2012) [-]
thats because she acquired the speed booster ability on planet Zebes
User avatar #148 to #140 - toggafjones (10/11/2012) [-]
but she could run before that too...
#149 to #148 - ninjapleazze (10/11/2012) [-]
but not as fast
User avatar #151 to #149 - toggafjones (10/11/2012) [-]
but she could still run for longer than chief can
#152 to #151 - ninjapleazze (10/11/2012) [-]
personally i think she is more badass
User avatar #154 to #152 - toggafjones (10/11/2012) [-]
yea i play metroid more than halo (not trying to be a dick with my comments)
ive played the trilogy from metroid
and ive played a couple of halo games awhile back (i personally loved that sword that one hits)
User avatar #113 to #96 - defiantly (10/11/2012) [-]
In the books as kids, even without the suits they were enhanced to run like blurs.

The suit was said to increase that further.

They really move too slow in the games....
User avatar #106 to #96 - dafuqmang (10/11/2012) [-]
You do realize he can LIFT more than a ton, run at something like 25 MPH without the suit.

The suit also enhances body functions.

Let's put it this way, it was so much, they had the suit on someone without the genetic modifications that chief had. The guy moved his arm, it broke so fast it caused several spams that splintered the guy and killed him.

Only a spartan can wear the suits, because only they have been genetically modified enough to use them without dying.

Powered Exoskeleton suits in a nutshell.
User avatar #239 to #106 - originalworks (10/11/2012) [-]
In the books, Either Linda or Kelly ( two other spartan II's) was able to sprint up to 50-60 km/h which is equivalent to 37 MPH
User avatar #363 to #239 - meestaa (10/11/2012) [-]
I think Kelly was the one renowned for being extremely fast, didn't John use her as a scout in the exercise where they got dropped in the middle of nowhere?
User avatar #369 to #363 - fargone (10/11/2012) [-]
Yep, it's Kelly. I think one of the books described her reaction speed being so high it was unmeasurable with her armor on.
User avatar #130 to #106 - jaggedherp (10/11/2012) [-]
Don't the suits also go really ******* fast? Like the chief normally has to wait for marines to catch up when he's with them? Unless you play the games, then you're slow as **** . The books state they run faster then marines even in the 1,000 pound armour.
User avatar #231 to #130 - dafuqmang (10/11/2012) [-]
Yeah. The suits put the strength of Chief, I.e not the fastest, strongest, or smartest, on par with a brute in strength.

He could also run at like. 60 in his suit for pretty much ever.
User avatar #268 to #231 - fargone (10/11/2012) [-]
That's debatable since a team of Spartans nearly got their **** slapped by some Brutes in one of the books.
User avatar #291 to #268 - wrpen (10/11/2012) [-]
That depends on how many there were. If a 6 person team of spartans like, say, Noble team went up against an entire army of brutes, they'd lose easy.
User avatar #368 to #291 - fargone (10/11/2012) [-]
I think it was Blue Team, so it was John, Fred, Linda, Kelly and maybe one or two more of them. I can't remember which book it was. I also think it was the first time they had fought brutes, so it's more of an anecdotal example.
Also, you probably already know this, but the Spartan III's are weaker than the Spartan II's. The 2's where the super badass proof of concept, the 3's were the toned down expendable production model. One of the books describes an entire company of 3's getting sacrificed to take out a Covenant generator.
User avatar #378 to #368 - dafuqmang (10/11/2012) [-]
Spartan 3's are significantly weaker than 2's.

2's are the strongest. Examples are Kelly, Chief, etc etc. 2's could take on a brute in regular G's, and in 0G are weaker, only roughly on terms with an elite.

1's are the weakest. Example being Sgt Johnson. They can beat the **** out of the average schmuck, but in the end are trounced severely by the elites.

3's are the happy medium. They are a match against a single elite, on a good day.

Wait, Avery was part of the ORION Project? That explains a lot of things.

Now I know why he could take a tank shell to the face in Halo 1.
User avatar #390 to #389 - dafuqmang (10/12/2012) [-]
You should read the books. He busted **** up. Fought a guy who had the upper hand because of surprised, and kicked his ass.
User avatar #391 to #390 - fargone (10/12/2012) [-]
I've read most of the major ones I think. The only one I remember him being in was Contact Harvest.
User avatar #392 to #391 - dafuqmang (10/12/2012) [-]
Yeah. That's the one where he ****** up the Irish dude. Think he was Irish anyway.
User avatar #375 to #368 - jaggedherp (10/11/2012) [-]
The 3s were made because the 2s cost millions each. They were mainly sent on suicide missions. Pretty sure when blue team got ****** up was the first brute encounter.
User avatar #105 to #96 - meowmixallday (10/11/2012) [-]
it's also powered by a ****** nuclear fusion reactor on the back.
User avatar #103 to #96 - Himynameisjacob (10/11/2012) [-]
It's a super suit. He can jump how high in it?
All I'm saying is, he should be able to sprint in a suit like that.
