Re: Commanods Vs Spartans

That puts the Spartans at a disadvantage as they do not have any heavy firepower, whereas the Commandos have the anti-armor attachment.

Besides even if all the Commandos had was the vibroblade on their gloves, they'd still come out top if it was in a woodland area or somewhere with lots oif shadow.

Presumably you just forgot about the vibroblade though...

You've already seen how well projectile rifles do against Commandos.

Re: Commanods Vs Spartans

If the UNSC knew what kind of battlezone the Spartans were headed into here, I would have thought they'd be equipped like they were in Delta Halo or the one after Delta Halo (who's name escapes me...)


Either way at the beginning of Delta Halo you were given a rocket launcher and an SMG.
And the next level you were given one of those Covenant Sniper Rifles (beam rifle) and then a plasma pistol or something.

No matter what the normal compliment of weaponry is the UNSC aren't stupid even if compared to others they are ill-equipped. I think they'd giove the Spartans heavier firepower to the Battle Rifle and Magnum...Especially the Magnum...

There is no way. NO WAY that 4 commandos would lose to Boba Fett if one Spartan could almost take him.

4 Spartans could take 4 commandos...But 4 Spartans would not be able to take any more than 6 Commandos if such a battle ensued.

A Commando is worth more than half a Spartan, maybe three quarters of a spartan. I previously said half a Spartan because I figured that someone who had obviously already underestimated the Commandos would have at least accepted that....



No offence intended by any of this by the way, I'm simply seeing this as a friendly difference of opinion.

I thought 4 commandoes were equal to a Arc trooper and Boba is better than an Arc trooper so he could beat 4 commandoes.

Re: Commanods Vs Spartans

Hm. Is this a conclusion brought forward from ...uh the 2nd RC novel who's name escapes me.....Guess I'm getting forgetful in my old age (16)


Ummm. Well in Star wars Miniatures... an Arc is 18 points, Boss is 19 points, The other 3 commandos are 16 and the best Boba Fett is 62 points.

That suggests that Boss is better than an Arc. An Arc is better than Scorch, Fixer or Sev and the four commandos together are slightly better than Boba Fett.

Points are usually reflective of how good they are but as Sadriel may tell you, they arenl't the greatest reflection of ability ever.

Re: Commanods Vs Spartans

They still have their independence.
Republic Commandos work in Squads, while ARC's work alone.

Re: Commanods Vs Spartans

Oh, yeah. big_smile  My bad.

Yes, Commandos are Deadly when they work alone.
If i remember right, didn't Niner take out part of a small vilage?

It seems already clear that Commandos can handle certain matters when their by-themselves.

Re: Commanods Vs Spartans

I thought the Spartans were tougher from the start.

The equipment and training are all fairly similar stuff, but the Spartans are super-soldiers.
