Operation: TREBUCHET was the last major UNSC offensive against the human insurrection before first contact with the Covenant empire. Our mod will focus on the struggles of the common soldier, rather than the elite spartan warriors, during that offensive. Experience the Halo universe from a new, brutal perspective. For the most up-to-date info regarding the mod and the community, monitor the official subreddit, r/OperationTrebuchet.

In games where reloading wouldn't empty the rest of the damned clip, I grew up always reloading. Rather have that extra 4 rounds to save my skin.

How are you planning on implementing energy shields for Elites, Jackals, and other relevant Covenant troops?

No answer for you at the moment, we are currently experimenting with possible ways to implement shields, but only for Elites at the moment.

Meh looks like crap.

No blood effects...I just dont see a reason to play this over any of the official halo games.

Way too much work needs to be done to make this worth downloading but good luck.

This is a pre-alpha release, we've decided to release it because people wanted to see it and to confirm that we are working on it.

Makes me want to buy ARMA 3, mostly just to play this mod,... with velociraptors. Keep up the good work.

Really you are going to bury my comment because it's negative? So people cant say man this doesn't look very good? Really?

Screw your mod it looks awful even pre alpha this doesn't look like it's going to turn out to be all that much anyways, why play a halo mod when you can play the best halo ever called halo ce?

I'm not actually doing anything to your comment. People are downvoting it. Only thing I can do is delete comments.

If you don't keep things civil, I WILL delete your comments. If you don't like what you see, go ahead and move along or at least provide some constructive feedback.

McChaffee- Nice one.
Darth252- Nobody is saying your comment wasn't allowed. But the snapping because of the community's response is unnecessary.
If you don't like it, go play Halo CE, champ.
ARMA 3 is for the pros. And we will play it like real gamers should.

Wow just saw this, this is great, I remember back when eridanus insurrection was a thing it was just an inside joke and a pipe dream that the covenant would ever be in the mod. Now it's actually happening.

Some of my ODSTs have helmet parts sticking out of their visor. Almost like there's another model underneath that's poking its way through. Is this normal?

If I may ask, without any real knowledge of how it works, but will you be experimenting with the possibility of bullets pinging off armour like it does to tank armour?
Or possibly adding uniforms similar to Halo Wars marines? The current ones (freedom of speech) would look better if it wasn't a whole throat to groin metal vest. Marine vests were somewhat similar in Halo 1, but also remember that those metal suits were suppose to be ODSTs. I believe I remember reading that in the Halo book, "The Flood". I personally don't believe they went from their suits to armoured suits and nothing less. Hardly the first choice I would have for a backup uniform set.

Just a little suggestion I think a lot of people would like.
Please Please add the Arbiter armour/unit. Make it stronger than the Zealot and give it a sword once thats done. Would be great.
