    Halo Armor - Best protective suit ever or a walking death trap? If Mjolnir Armor is like having your body encased in a small tank, why exactly does it only take one to three punches to kill you? In this episode of Game Theory, I get to the bottom of one of the oldest Halo questions around. How can Master Chief have a super suit capable of surviving a fall from space, yet one little five finger strike can send him toppling over into his grave?

                          Anything ahead of the mk4 then had energy shields. Red team in halo wars 1 is not supposed to have energy shields. So nanocomposite material doesn’t matter for a while.

                            #TheGameTheorists, The main reason it takes 1 to 2 hits to melee kill a Spartan from behind is because that is where the shield generator is located, the same goes for the Elites

                                    Or maybe the game encourages you to run into battle and use your melee or maybe having a good backup wen your ammo runs out
