Also, when they’re trying to murder you
We’ve spent well more than a decade conditioned to abhor The Covenant. Every time we see them, everything immediately dissolves into an all-out firefight. There’s no love loss at all.
But, maybe those guys aren’t so bad — especially the Grunts. At a recent preview event, we captured some small talk from various Covenant enemies in Halo 5. Grunts prove to be cute at absolutely all times. Try not to crack a smile as one yells “Scatter!” and runs around in a panic with his arms flailing. Related: Elites are still unrelenting assholes.
Knowing your enemy is some undetermined fraction of the battle — half, I think. Knowing Halo 5 would be wise too. Make sure to watch our campaign preview for a bit more intel. There’s more to this game than watching Grunts being amazing.
