Spike Grenade (Halo 3)

Excerpt from long-term, in-field interview with the soldiers of E2-BAG/1/7.

The story is too old to be commented.

But this sounds identical to the spike grenades in Resistance.

on a sticky grenade. You know it was created decades ago and used in WWII. Also a version of this grenade is in GOW.

GUYS LOOK I KNEW IT!!!

BUNGIE STOLE THE SPIKE GRENADE BY TAKING IT FROM R:FOM AND PUTTING A FINISHED MODEL INTO THE PRE-ALPHA IN 5 DAYS AFTER R:FOM RELEASED!!!!!!!!!

please dude If you wanna play firsts then Halo's sticky grenade kindy beats R:FOM. Also could the spike grenade be used as a remote mine in R:FOM?

Nevermind that the game already had:
-The stick Plasma Grenade
-The shrapnel-shooting Frag Grenade (er, by description anyway)
-A model of pieces of wreckage to damage you (flying parts of exploding vehicles in Halo 2)
-...and a gun called a "Needler"

The inspiration for this clearly came from Resistance.

Anyway, this grenade sounds like a great addition to multi. I especially like the line about "stick a spike grenade to the door, pass through and then turn around to watch the spike grenade take its toll on the following enemy."

As a defensive specialist, I'm already drooling over this one. If only I could've had this thing back at Blood Gulch or Sidewinder... oh, the chaos I could have wrought. Toss it at the cieling above a ladder, and frag everyone off the ladder. Someone jumping down at your flag? Have a present waiting to blow them back up out of your base. Nice.

Nice FordGTGuy I smacked him one yesterday in another Halo news post.

Resistance's spike grenade is not a sticky bomb, but a bomb that shoots spikes hense the name. If Halo3's grenade is only a sticky bomb then they are only similar in name and not in function.

its ironic as hell to talk about someone stealing ideas from rfom cause resistance IS a bunch of stolen ideas. it plays alot like farcry, not to mention that sony tried to take the 2 most popular xbox live games at the time (halo and call of duty) and turn it into one game. putting aliens with ww2 was a shameless act to begin with when you consider how sony had NO decent fps franchise to compete with xbox. so they just splice the 2 ideas together. is there anything original about the gameplay? not at all

Rooted_Dust3741d ago

The same could be said of Halo. Did it do anything original...not really. And you cannot fault Insomniac on weapons. RFOM features one of the best and most interesting collection of weapons in an FPS, in my opinion. Especially the Splitter, Fuel-Air grenades, and Backlash grenade. Resistance also has a skill point system that is interesting and fun to try to complete all challenges.
Just because Resistance wasn't as pretty as GOW, doesn't mean it should be written of as nothing. I can't wait for the next Resistance...If you've played through it you know the story isn't finished.

I'm a die-hard Halo fan, but even I'll admit- there was not a single moment of Halo that was original. Seriously. You can find previous examples of... well.. everything...

It's just that the pieces came together so well. It's like a Mario game- you could make Super Mario all over again, with absolutely nothing original except redesigns of the levels, and it'd still be a blast to play.

'sall in the details, mang.
