    "They're all scary and angry and they like to smash things..."— Bungie

    Background: Hunters less commonly known as Mgalekgolo are actually colonies of smaller worm like creatures called Lekgolo which join together to exponetially increase the overall strength and intelligence.
    When the Covenant stumbled onto the Hunter's homeworld Te, instead of freely mining its resourses the covenant was greeded by an opposition so powerful that all of their efforts were halted. Due to the hunter's natural physique they were unstoppable in any ground skrimishes, and overpowered even the Sangheili (Elites) killing the arbiter assigned for this task. Covenant was left only with one option, to bombard the planet's surface with overheated plasma essantially glassing it. Mgalekgolo were forced to submit or face destruction by technology which they could not match.
    After joining the covenant the Mgalekgolo would provide bipedal combat forms for the war effort and in return have full access to the covenant interstellar travel.

    Hunter's bipedal forms average 12 to 13 feet tall (Note that some colonies have grown large then the wraith tanks). The Sangheili, respecting the hunter's warrior physic provided their armor (same material used for their ship hauls.) This armor tends to make the hunters slouch down to about 8 to 8.5 feet. When the Lekgolo colony grows too large it splits in two. These two colonies act as two separate beings, but are mysteriously tied together. These colonies always fight in pairs, deployed in 2s and are known as bond brothers. The spikes on the backs indicate where the colony split in half.

    Armed with assault cannons which are intergrated directly into their armor, the hunters may choose to fire in single shots or in a devastating fluid beam depending on the situation. The shield on their left arm, weighing at nearly 2 tons can aslo be used as an unstoppable melee weapon.

    So without any more further delay screenshots:

    Some parts are not perfect, enjoy em for what they are.

    Holy crap dude this is AMAZING! These hunters just look like the real hunters, and the fact that there is TWO of them and you could both get inside of them. Those were some nice facts about them. But im so speechless. I like every thing about them and there is nothing wrong with anything. One word: FLAWLESS

    This is an amazing aesthetic map! When you were discussing this in the Forge Discussion, I had no idea that you meant for them to be really big. The fact you actually made the organic matter inside the armor too! You sir have just won a place in my heart and my hard drive.

    Oh my god. This is one of the best aesthetic maps I've ever seen. I mean, those Hunters look just like real Hunters! Nice touch using gold columns for the orange spots, and the fuel rod shots and the teleporters only add to the awesomeness. 10 out of 10, no questions asked. Feature this nao!!!

    At Con741n3d: What ***** have you been looking at??

    This map is very sweet. At first I thought it would be an infection game but no. I was utterly wrong! I think this will get a feature I really do. Not my place to say though. great job... Just saying those arent 12-13 ft tall like the real things ;D

    What's that smell?

    I remember smelling this map. I forgot to DL it when I did though. Congrats on it's obvious success. And I'll inspect it more further when I get the chance.
    BTW when you can get on your real account add me. I'm sure you know who I am.

    As I read the writeup I thought this was going to be a gametype where two players acted as "hunters" on a custom map. I WAS WRONG! =D The classic action poses really sell the larger than life experience and kudos to you for getting the small details just right on such a large scale. This is beautiful, epic, and the best asthetic piece since Fronk.

    Ha ha you guys and your posts are all awesome!
    Blassin, I think my brain did that exact same thing after looking at your post for 3+ seconds...
    I hid a sort of easter egg on this map which isn't shown in any of the pictures, well not that well at least. It has something to do with a hunter pwning something which everyone should be familiar with. Has anyone got a chance to figure it out?
    Anyway just another random background fact: Unlike the Halo 2 Scarabs which were piloted by elites, the Halo 3 Scarabs are piloted by the very same Lekgolo worms which make up the hunter colonies. A very common confusion may be that the scarab is made up of the worms. This in fact is not true. The Scarab itself is a super vehicle, but the worms are connected to the core and are directly intergrated into its control panels.
    Next time you pown one of these bugs in campaign instead of destroying the core, beat it down a few times to knock out the armor, you will see what im talking about.

    Oh no the egg is not hard to find at all, just have to look at every part of the hunter.
    Mochasun, in theory Truth Halo 2 Scarabs were simply mining modifications which Truth brought with him to help excovate the arc. The halo 3 scarabs are more specified for combat.
    I have a feeling that we will see a little bit of both in reach, I don't want to throw out any background spoilers for anyone, but Reach required some heavy digging for the covies..

    The egg was hard for me because I though it would be something like nobody would except. You should really think about making a scarab or a giant suicide grunt would be funny lol.

    I guess i made it sound like the egg harder to find than it actually is. No, like i said it's not really in any of the pictures, but it makes a pretty sick effect if you blow it up, and watch it fall down.
    And as a matter of fact I have been working on a giant Sangheili (Elite)
    Think of the scale of these hunters and then crank it up to the max sandbox altitude and some crazy hands on detail.
    So expect the same punch as this post, plus some more background write up.



    (oh and to add on I do have a scarab on my fileshare, but it's VERY old. pre dropfreeze or ghost merge)
