    We all know that when you preorder a copy of "ODST" you get to play as johnson in firefight, pretty cool?
    Anyway my main point is without a doubt johnson is one of the coolest most badassed things about halo. Which begs the question is johnson to awesome for us. I mean can you imagine playing firefight and some kid playing johnson is running in and getting is ass kicked, this is just going to ruin johnson for me (and several others).
    What is your opinion?

    Master Chief is a superhuman yet little grunts can kill you in campaign...
    I probably wont even buy ODST but it wont bother me.

    You could say that Johnson is going to be like a new recon. Or rather like a new katana. It doesn't represent skill, only dedication to the game.

    I dont care really, he is awesome. Does it ruin Halo in general for you when you see little kids playing as super soldiers in suits dying? not really... Why should it matter if little kids are dying as a regular soldier?

    You get him as a playable character if you pre-order the game. It's not anything like Recon, or the Katana body-piece.


    Anyway, I don't see how this is a bad thing. If little kids who play badly want to be Johnson it's there choice. I really don't see any negative reproductions.

    In my opinio, though I plan to get johnson, I will probly never use him because ODST is for ODSTs. Maybe when I get sick of playing as Dutch or Mickey I will play as him. But for the most part I am going to avoid him

    Seriously. What'll the Sarge have? Rookie is the main character, nuff said bout him. Dutch has a Spartan Laser, and blows up a fucking bridge. Mickey has a rocket and is retarted. (joking... or am I???) Dare has Recon. Romeo is a sniper.

    Sarge has.... a cigar? No helmet? you're paying 5-15 extra bucks to play as a dude in Firefight only who has no helmet and smokes... which is bad for you. So... WHY should you pay all those bucks?

    I'm gonna play as johnson. He's obviously more badass than any of the ODSTs, so why not?
    Cyall in firefight on release day!

    Johnson got omglolPWN3D by a light bulb. Little kids won't make him worse than he already is.

    Not sure if I'm right on this one, but if I am, you guys look like a bunch of retards. From what I know, when you pre-order Halo 3 ODST, Johnston helps you out in firefight, you don't get to play as him. I'm almost positive on this one, however, if anyone is willing to prove me wrong just provide a link.

    No link, it's simple enough.

    Go to bungie.net, hover your mouse over the projects tab near the top of the page, click on Halo 3: ODST. Click on pre-order bonus (has Johnson smoking as a picture).

    Quote of what it says:

    "Sergeant Avery Junior Johnson is a tough as nails career Marine that has been in more life or death battles than you've had hot meals. He has survived more infectious Flood outbreaks, greased more Covenant bad guys, and kicked more ass than any other twenty soldiers. And now you get to walk a mile in his shoes.
    Pre-order your copy of Halo 3: ODST from select participating retailers listed below and you’ll receive a token to unlock Sgt. Johnson for use in the all new cooperative mode, Firefight. If your regional retailer is not on the list, please contact them directly to determine whether or not they are participating in the per-order bonus offer."

    The fact that Johnson is wearing less armor in game wont affect anything.
    He will have just as much a chance of surviving in firefight than any other ODST.

    Even with Johnson, I'm probably going to play as someone else. Mostly because I could give less of a **** who I am, as long as I'm playing. That's basically why I pre-ordered it in the first place. Let little kids make his less of a badass as you say they will. In my mind he will always be one intense marine, mostly because I read Contact Harvest.

    i preordered the game, and i can honestly say ill probably never use him. i have this thing where i dont like using the same looking thing as every other person playing the game. I also never got the fascination with Johnson to begin with.

    Seriously. Look, I know that Johnson's badass as in he doesn't get infected, is super strong throughout the series, and alot of other stuff. But he's not an ODST, and he's in an ODST game. That ain't bad or anything, but he has the same hitpoints as an ODST, and those little kids dying as him will ruin his "badassness" to all the people who are obsessed with him. Or at least that's what people say.

    And as Silence said, I never was fascinated, or even know why people love Johnson. He's another invincible marine. Rtas Vadum (Half Jaw) is invincible, and who liked him? Not alot of people.

    no, just because all the 8yr olds that play will think that johnson is the greatest. if it wasnt for them, i would because there wouldnt be a million of them.

    There would still be more than 500 Johnsons running around a Firefight map, being tactical. But I still wouldn't pick him, for reasons exactly like thesilencebroken.
