Sorry if something like this has been posted before (and it probably has), but is anyone else switching from Spartan to Elite when Halo: Reach comes around?

I know i am, i play as a Spartan in H3 because the Elites in H3...well, "fat dino" is all i can say....but the Elites in Reach look wicked, like a mix of the ones from Halo Wars and Halo: CE, so i'm definatly playing as one in Reach, anyone else?

You cannot be brave if you do not fear.

You can't choose.

NO GROUP INVITES!!!

You cannot choose to play an Elite in Reach. You're forced to be one if you play Invasion or Invasion slayer and are assinged to the Elite team.
Or if you happen to play Covie Slayer which is EvsE gamemode.

You don't choose between the two. Elites are gametype specific. It wouldn't make sense if you had a choice.

  • 04.29.2010 6:53 AM PST

You can only play as them in some gametypes. In all other gametypes you play as Spartans.

The gametypes you can play as Elites so far are:
Invasion (Spartans vs. Elites)
Generator Defense (Spartans vs. Elites)
Covie Slayer (Elites vs. Elites)

lol. you can probably only choose in custom games later on but even then you might not be able to.

I think you can only play as an Elite in the gametypes that support it. You cannot choose to be an Elite.

Win or Lose, dont quit!
No, I dont want to join in your group.

I'll mostly play as spartan. Never have had anything against elites, just like spartans more.

Dang, looks like i haven't been paying attention to the podcasts, oh well, i'm still looking forward to playing as an elite, when i get the chance.

My troll sense is tingling.

In the newest vidoc you can see a Spartan with an Elite teammate. This pretty much confirms you can pick in certain gametypes.

At about...0:59 The player is a Spartan, and he's kill stealing from an Elite teammate, indicated by the service tag.

whats up

To me it doesnt make sense for you not to I mean why go through the trouble of make the elites the way they are just to be a gametype option and bungies has stated their customiseable well you cant customise a gametype option so the elite armor for the special editions would be pointless and if they can make you become a elite in invasion or generator defence even if your a spartan, and if you play elite vs elite in mm then how do you gain experiance or credits if you are playing as a non existing player modle this is merly a option. To get to the point they could be a character modle and you be forced to play as your spartan in certain playlist and in custom its what ever you set it as.

Elite are stronger and faster then Spartans.

BUT!!!!!!

Any Spartan vs Elite gametype you take turns on playing both sides.

  • 04.29.2010 8:23 AM PST

I really dont kno

what game do i pick to play as elite slayer arena or that game bag one?

  • 05.05.2010 3:53 PM PST

Yeah, I am Big Fan about Elites, Spartan is cool yes, but I rather Elite, so I hopefully they may have Elite for Online, if that so awesome! But Bungie better make fair to elite cause in Halo 3 Elite have few set and Spartan has alot, so Bungie better be put elite in there and hope they add alot awesome custom.Bungie doing well making Reach but if they remove personal for Elite I may be very Upsent. lol Elite Rule!

Look at the hand again. That is an elite kill stealing from an elite. Also look at the gametype. It's Covy slayer.
