The Master Chief of Halo has been a powerful and influential force in the franchise’s various games. Halo Infinite is no different. 343 goes out of its way for players to make sure Master Chief knows that he may be winning a war by himself. It is worth asking whether Master Chief of Halo Infinite has the same strength as the Master Chief from Bungie or the original Halo: Combat Evolved. This clip compares Halo Infinite’s first and latest games.
This video of focus features clips from Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo Infinite. It provides a funny but interesting comparison of Master Chief’s relative strength in these games. To be more precise, the focus video compares Master Chief’s shield and armour strength between the two games. Both clips show Master Chief receiving a full blast from the Forerunner Monitor’s hard light.
Halo: Combat Evolve’s 343 Guilty Spark launches the first blast. Master Chief becomes furious after learning about his plan to destroy the Halo Installation. Halo Infinite’s example shows the Forerunner sub monitor Adjutant resolution, who attacks Master Chief because he plans to disable Installation 7’s Spires. Adjutant Resolution seems to have used the same attack against Master Chief that Guilty Spark did. However, his hard light laser is much more effective than Chief’s.
The video was viewed online by many people who find it humorous and see it as a fun and lighthearted way to compare it. One fan claims that Master Chief would have been exterminated if the game had been on Legendary difficulty. Another fan offers a simple answer: “Nanobots”.
Surprisingly, many Halo fans are open to the idea and use their lore knowledge as a reason for the strength difference. Most people respond that Halo: Combat Evolved’s Master Chief wears Mjolnir V armour. This armour was made before humanity interacted with Forerunners in any capacity. Master Chief in Halo Infinite is wearing GEN 3 armour. This armour was made after humans had become more proficient with hardlight weapons. Other players note that Halo Infinite allows them to upgrade their shields using Spartan technology.
Master Chief has been through many difficult missions over the years. Fans want Master Chief to take on more difficult missions than he could handle years ago. These clips suggest that Master Chief won’t be caught again by surprise. He has other important things to be focused on.
