Fenix, Dom, Baird, and Cole (Gears of War) are equipped with: Snub Pistol - Standard issue sidearm for all soldiers of the COG. You always have your snub pistol. Lancer Assault Rifle - The workhorse Coalition weapon, fully automatic. Intended for midrange combat. The weapon's Chainsaw Bayonet can be activated when in close proximity to an enemy. Gnasher Shotgun - Short-range weapon that can occasionally take down a Locust Drone in one shot. Most affective at less than 3 meters.
And of course 4 frag grenades each. The 4 COG soldiers are taking on 4 Covenant Elites from Halo. We have a Gold Elite, Red Elite, and two Blue Elites all armed with a plasma rifle, needler, and 4 plasma grenades each. The location is Act 5 of Gears of War which is a moving train. The COG start at the front of the train and the Elites start at the back. It is a fight to the death. No one can detach a car!!! No one!!!
Zealot...nasty. An elite must be on the genocide level of killing to reach that rank. A zealot alone will dismantle them. Put him out of the equation & the COGs might take a couple of victories if they work as a team--which they most likely will.
Elites are more dangerous than Berserkers though. A berserker is just a dumb juggernaut of destruction PLUS it's blind. An elite has superior reflexes, strength than a human and are expert tacticians. Still i give it to the COG more often than not if the Zealot is taken out of the equation. Marcus, Baird, Dom & Cole were tough all right.
when chief battles a elite in the fall of reach he is nearly out matched this if i remember was wearing blue armour (a minor). taking this into account and all other knowledge of elites and the shields the COG wont even taek out one elite. they ware standad metal armour as far as i can tell a plasma bolt will burn right threw this and the have basic slug firing weapons (excluding the HOD) which as we know are as stated in the halo 2 LE booklet almost laughable though enough rounds make break down there shields by the time this has happened the zealot with the energy sword the veteran with the carbine and the minors with the plasma rifles ( i know weapons arnt as stated but this is the most realistic armourment of the covenant) will of whiped the floor with fenuix and his crew maybe a well placed *** tag could take out one of the elites
Gender: Male Location: The epitome of my evolution.
A) The book is also shit, and largely regarded as uncannon/PIS on this forum due to the over hype and massive strength boost they give the Chief.
B) Yes, the Chief had trouble killing one Elite in SPACE, yet later on he kills them by the dozens, ALONE. Their goes the Elite's credibility...
C) The Marines "metal" armor in Halo can withstand a direct shot from a head shot from a beam rifle and live, as well as multiple blasts from Elites and even Hunters. The Covenants ground forces, in all honesty, suck. Sorry, but the game >> anything the books say.
C) The COG seem a lot better trained then the UNSC marines. They have a habit of actually.. oh iono...taking COVER. their not going to just stand their like dumb asses firing blindly and get sliced in half with an energy sword, like the UNSC marines do. Besides, the sword elite's shields suck ass. In Halo 1 on Legendary I killed two of the bastards with just a half clip of MA5B ammo. I didn't even aim for the head...
D) And as for the rest of the Elites... their pretty stupid. As far as the games go, the red and blue ones will just run at you blindly firing...
