Grunts are poor little bastards, they are part of the soul of Halo. No other FPS really has an enemy unit that is almost entirely just a comic relief. I would love a multiplayer mode where one team is grunts, with one or two player being elites while the other team is humans. Grunts immediately respawn upon death. Basically like invasion but one team is massively underpowered in terms of firepower but has massively superior numbers. One thing that popped up to me is that the graphics in the demo looked extremely "forge like" to me, as in it looked like a forge canvas from 5. My optimistic take is that this means we can forge AI now.After slaughtering them for 20 years does anyone else feel empathy for The Grunts? They were always the joke enemy of Halo, if it were Mario they'd be the Goombas. For crying out loud they flee in horror once Chief has turned the tide of battle into his favor. I've always felt pity for them, when they scream in horror, "LEADER DEAD RUN AWAY!" or "SOMEONE HELP I'M FIGHTING DEMON!"
Can't they break away from The Covenant? Can't one brave Grunt join the side of the Chief? I'll kill Jackals and Elites all day but I don't want to keep killing Grunts. #GruntLivesMatter
