Halo fans playing through the Hunt the Signal ARG have found images that suggest the Flood will return in Halo 5: Guardians. Showing images that fans say look like a Flood super cell
As long as I got a shotty and some frag grenades, I say bring em on!
awesome news if true :)
No... I love Halo, but I have always hated the Flood. As a concept, they're fantastic, but as actual in-game opponents... they're just mindless hordes of sloppy bad guy fodder, and I've always felt that they detracted from Halo's otherwise outstanding combat experience.
Long as there's a good way to bring them back story wise then yeah I'm up for it. Hope there's a flood horde mode
:O a flood horde mode would be sick!!!
Wow! I love The Flood! I couldn't wait for Halo MCC to return to The Library in Legendary Mode: Solo & Splitscreen Campaign Co-op with my daughter! That's a battle of battles. Also, meeting The Flood for the very first time in 2001, was one of my greatest gaming moments ever! Seeing & fighting The Flood in Halo 5 would be icing on that Cake!
I hope not, I never liked them.
Gravemind was the coolest villain in the original trilogy imo.
The Flood are the most important bad guys in Halo to date, in fact, they literally are the wrath of god and satan in one unfathomable incarnation. Humans and Forerunners are simply mistakes of not only existence but reality as a whole, to the legion which once devoured galaxies... And is waiting for the perfect opportunity to return.
I have defeated fleets of THOUSANDS! Consumed a galaxy of mind and flesh and BONE! <3 Teh Gravemind
And no. That's Mass Effects story. Precursors 'created' the flood to destroy Forerunners for their betrayal. While testing humans to see if they were the next protectors.
How? i thought they were completely annihilated in H3.
What the Flood did in Halo 3? Pfft. Nothing compared to what they did just over a thousand years prior. Also they are really just "Contained" and not truly gotten rid of. Next time? They won't be a mere parasitic abomination, but an intergalactic hell.
I hate them ;-)
Flood were cool but I prefer their story end
It has come back... (grabs battle rifle)
If you Hate the flood its probably because you hate the difficulty of taking them on, I prefer the challenge the flood bring. I love taking on the flood, ready to kick there azz again. Bring on the Flood.
I found them anything but challenging, and that's precisely why I hate them. They are little more than a bullet-consuming annoyance, and have always been the least exciting opponents in Halo. Covenant and Prometheans will duck, dodge, take cover, flank, and regroup. The Flood? Just stupid waves running right at you. Nothing more. I was over that crap on the third level of the original Library.
@Naga The Flood can be difficult and I guess they can be easy to, Covenant and Prometheans can be easy, its a relative statement, to some they can be difficult and to some they can be hard. There are subtle factors that determine the difficulty of each enemy type to every different player. Naga that's your opinion, but its different for everyone, that's a FACT. Bottom line is I Like the challenge of the Flood, if someone else doesn't then ok, but I like them and the challenge they can bring.
@ManAnimalX Dude, the whole purpose of your original comment was to denigrate and marginalize the opinion of anyone who disagreed with your love of the Flood. By saying, "if you hate the flood its probably because you hate the difficulty," you very intentionally challenged the skill or readiness of anyone who didn't share your opinion. Don't act like you were all about tolerating the opinions of other people all along.
I want the thick, high health flood like in halo ce. The halo 3 flood were cool because of all the different types of flood there were but felt like push overs. I hope they really hope that they bring that overwhelming, wave of power that we have seen from other media. Also make the flood more like necromorphs in dead space. Scary, overwhelming monsters. It would be cool to see the halo 4 flood spartan models have some place in the story.
Aim to the heart
The Flood were hell in Halo:CE.
good, halo 4 lacked the tension they brought.
