''All modern infantry weapons from pistols to assault rifles use micro-scaled mass accelerator technology. Projectiles consist of tiny metal slugs suspended within a mass-reducing field, accelerated by magnetic force to speeds that inflict kinetic damage.
The ammo magazine is a simple block of metal. The gun's internal computer calculates the mass needed to reach the target based on distance, gravity, and atmospheric pressure, then shears off an appropriately sized slug from the block. A single block can supply thousands of rounds, making ammo a non-issue during any engagement.''
Their magazine is a thermal clip. Technically, the weapons have infinite ammunition, but they have a massive heat buildup, so thermal clips are ejected once they are spent and new ones are placed inside.
Are you saying that the Chief will move slowly under Shepard's adrenaline rush? Bullshit. He's too fast and even some SPARTANs could barely follow their own even with their ultra-short reaction times. You're overpowering Shepard there. Besides, all it takes for the Chief to finish Shepard off is two bullets right in the head. Kinetic barriers barely even hold up... and Halo is balanced for gameplay reasons. If you'd look on all the SPARTAN abilities and compare them to gameplay, you will see the massive difference. Biotics, tech... The Chief has bested all that (The Didact is an example of telekinetic abilities plus advanced technology and the Chief has beaten him).
In the novels, the Chief could tank massive plasma explosions while wearing the MJOLNIR MARK IV (No shield Powered Assault Armor). He could tank even more while inside the MJOLNIR MARK V and extra in the MARK VI. With every new MJOLNIR armor, a SPARTAN's skills are enhanced slightly more.
I suggest you look outside of the gaming world and pick up a book. Games don't depict everything as they truly are, however, in Mass Effect's case, the games are the highest level of canon. They claim that every soldier is outfitted with kinetic barriers, yet, in the ending of ME3 where the Hammer forces land, Alliance Marines get one-shotted in areas that are seemingly less important.
If you end this debate, you are automatically saying that you are incapable of arguing and have no wish to actually feel like you've been beaten AKA You will be branded a ''Sorry Ass Loser'' if you decline FACTS from BOOKS.
Do you have evidence that I haven't played the games? Please, provide me some evidence before you make such childish games. I have all three ME games installed on my computer, however, I have a feeling that you'll dismiss it as you are incapable of enduring a decent comeback. Tell me then, why did you begin to argue in the first place if you dismiss facts?
