....shield nade?

do you mean bubble shield?


I'm talking about the grenade you could pick up and wherever thrown it would create a bubble shield. I think it was a fun enhancement to the game and it'd be nice in halo 4 even if just for customs

It wasn't a grenade. It was a piece of equipment.

Was equipment in H3 then became a AA in reach now the closest to that is the shield in H4

I was always curious to see how it would have been if it was the grenade-style device shown in the "Starry Night" trailer. Could result in interesting strategies being able to throw it further like a grenade, or it could break things completely. Hard to say without seeing it in action.

For those who don't remember or haven't seen it, what I was referring to:

Halo 3 "Starry Night" (audio's a bit quiet)

So much potential for such a crap campaign. I was waiting for giant, legendary battles on Earth and instead I got... Well, Halo 3.

I suppose there was nothing quite on the scale of that trailer, but Halo 3's campaign is one of, if not my favorite in the series. Never quite understand the hate it gets.

My memory of the details of the campaigns are a little fuzzy right now, but iirc there weren't many epic battles on Earth in Halo 2 & 3 because:
- Initially the Covenant didn't come to Earth prepared for large scale battle
- MC's "quest" took him away from Earth shortly after **** hit the fan
- We end up finding peace

I think there were more large scale battles in Reach because even though they initially came somewhat unprepared as well, more time elapses to allow for more Covie reinforcements.
