As we all know, Halo 3 introduced a buttload of multiplayer armor permutations for the Spartan and Elite character models. But it never introduced a brand new character model. Well I've always thought that the Brutes would make a great multiplayer model for a future Halo game. And funnily enough, Halo: Reach just might introduce them as a multiplayer character model.

I understand that there are a couple of flaws with my proposition. For example, Brutes are usually 9-foot tall and this would mean they would have to have larger hitboxes. But Bungie could always just shorten the size of the Brute multiplayer model for gameplay purposes, just like Gears of War 1 and 2 did with Genearal RAAM in multiplayer modes. Another problem is the fact that Brutes are equipped with power armor instead of energy shields. I would say that Bungie should keep the Brutes power armor and give them some form of energy shield anyway.

Below this very sentense are some of my ideas for Brute armor permutations in Halo: Reach multiplayer.

Thanks for reading my blog and please tell me if you agree or disagree with some of my ideas or if you would want to see the Jiralhanae as a multiplayer character model in Halo: Reach.
