COVENANT BANSHEE IN HALO 3 by victortky COVENANT BANSHEE IN HALO 3 by victortky
[SPOILERS FOR HALO 3]
The Banshee in Halo 3 is the same in design as its previous appearances in the last two installments. It has kept its boosts and rolls, although you cannot do it as often. The Fuel Rod Gun is now a secondary weapon in Multiplayer. Just like in Halo 2, it can be fired with the "B" button. The radius and size of the Fuel Rod Gun has been decreased for balance with the other vehicles and weapons of the game.

The Banshee, as with the Warthog and Wraith, have received a substantial visual upgrade. Its canopy now has a green iridescent sheen, almost insectoid in appearance, which makes it look like a truly alien alloy and adds to the realism. Other than that, it remains similar in design and usage to its Halo CE counterpart, though it cannot face any lower than 45 degrees, to prevent it from overpowering ground players. The brake function has also been disabled, so it cannot stop and will skid on forever. Also, the banshee is more manuverable than the Hornet.

There are still more interviews and character profiles coming on, but I have only managed to secure a few interviews with the F.S.O.F. members under the Republic's strict military protocols and actions. There are still many others. I will be uploading more in the near future, after finishing my assignments and projects.

Please read and comment on it. More to come...

I will be uploading some more covers of my favourite computer games and comic characters...so keep an eye out for them!

HALO BY BUNGIE.

Huh, I never really had the chance to get in one of those. They were really fun in Halo 2 though! I think they had a whole level for it? Don't remember.

When the banshee was the older counterpart, I would fly in that thing like a whore.

It was fun to be a sky ninja when people weren't paying attention.

Now what do I get? A rocket up the ass every time I step into one.

Oh well, at least I have the tank.
