By Anthony Taormina 4 years ago While Bungie is still hard at work on one of the biggest patches for Destiny yet, they are slowly revealing the component parts of the upcoming update.
The player's health bar is not visible, but players are instead equipped with a damage-absorbing shield that regenerates when not taking fire. For example, most Covenant weapons eschew disposable ammo clips for a contained battery, which cannot be replaced if depleted.
However, these weapons can overheat if fired continuously for prolonged periods. The player can carry a total of eight grenades four human grenades, four Covenant to dislodge and disrupt enemies.
New in Halo 2 is the ability to board enemy vehicles that are near the player and traveling at low speeds. The player or AI latches onto the vehicle and forcibly ejects the other driver from the vehicle.

In campaign mode, the player must complete a series of levels that encompass Halo 2's storyline. These levels alternate between the Master Chief and a Covenant Elite called the Arbiterwho occupy diametrically opposed roles in the story's conflict.
Aside from variations in storyline, the Arbiter differs from Master Chief only in that his armor lacks a flashlight; instead, it is equipped with a short duration rechargeable form of active camouflage that disappears when the player attacks or takes damage.
There are four levels of difficulty in campaign mode: Easy, Normal, Heroic, and Legendary. An increase in difficulty will result in an increase in the number, rank, health, damage, and accuracy of enemies; a reduction of duration and an increase in recharge time for the Arbiter's active camouflage; a decrease in the player's health and shields; and occasional changes in dialog.
The most well known of the hidden content are the skulls hidden on every level. The skulls, which can be picked up like a weapon, are located in hard-to-reach places. Many are exclusive to the Legendary mode of difficulty.
Once activated, each skull has a specific effect on gameplay. For example, the "Sputnik" skull found on the Quarantine Zone level alters the mass of objects in the game; thus resulting in explosions being able to launch these objects across larger distances.
Combat Evolved, the Xbox version of Halo 2 features a multiplayer system that allows players to compete with each other in split-screen and system link modes; in addition, it adds support for online multiplayer via Xbox Live. In earlier games, one person specifies a game type and map and configures other settings, before setting up his or her device as a game server and advertising the game to the world at large.
Halo 2 introduced a " playlist " system that automated this process to keep a steady flow of games available at all times, and layered a skill-ranking system on top.
Combat Evolved and Factions of Halo Halo 2 takes place in the 26th century. Humans, under the auspices of the United Nations Space Command or UNSC, have developed faster-than-light slipspace travel and colonized numerous worlds.
Declaring humanity an affront to their gods, the Forerunnersthe Covenant begin to systemically obliterate the humans with their superior numbers and technology.
After the human bastion at the planet Reach is destroyed, a single ship, The Pillar of Autumn, follows protocol and initiates a random slipspace jump to lead the Covenant away from Earth. The crew discovers a Forerunner ringworld called Halowhich the Covenant wants to activate because of their religious belief that the activation of the ring will bring about a "Great Journey," sweeping loyal Covenant to salvation.
The human supersoldier Master Chief Petty Officer John and his AI companion Cortana learn from Halo's AI monitor, Guilty Sparkthat activation of the Halos will prevent the spread of the Flood by destroying all sentient life the parasite can subsist on in the galaxy.
Instead of activating the ring, however, the Master Chief evades Guilty Spark and his robots and detonates the Pillar of Autumn's engines, destroying the installation and preventing the escape of the Flood.
First StrikeHalo 2 opens with the trial of Thel 'Vadam, a Covenant Elite commander in charge of a fleet from the first gameaboard the Covenant's mobile capital city of High Charity.
The Elite is stripped of his rank, branded a heretic for failing to stop the humans from destroying Halo, and is tortured by Tartarusthe Chieftain of the Covenant Brutes. The crew discover another Halo installation; realizing the danger the ring presents, Keyes sends the Master Chief to kill Regret while she and Johnson find Halo's key to activation, the Index.
Meanwhile, the disgraced Covenant commander is presented before the Prophet Hierarchs, who acknowledge that though the destruction of Halo was his fault, he is no heretic.
They offer him the honored position of Arbiter so that he can continue to fight for the Covenant. On his first mission to kill a heretic, the Arbiter discovers Guilty Spark, who the Covenant calls an "oracle," and brings him back to High Charity.
Bombarded from space, the Chief falls into a lake and is rescued by a mysterious tentacled creature. He reveals to the Arbiter that the Prophets have ordered the annihilation of the Elites, and sends the Arbiter falling down a deep chasm. The creature, Gravemindis the leader of the Flood on Installation The Gravemind reveals to the Arbiter that the Great Journey would destroy Flood, humans, and Covenant altogether, and sends both the Arbiter and Master Chief to different places to stop Halo's activation.
As the parasite overruns the city, consuming the Prophet of Mercy in the process, the Prophet of Truth orders Tartarus to take Keyes, Johnson, and Guilty Spark to Halo's control room and activate the ring. The Master Chief follows Truth aboard a Forerunner ship leaving the city; Cortana remains behind to destroy High Charity and Halo if Tartarus succeeds in activating the ring.
With the help of Johnson, he confronts Tartarus in Halo's control room. When the Arbiter tries to convince Tartarus that the Prophets have betrayed them both, Tartarus angrily activates the ring, and a battle ensues. Instead of shutting down the ring entirely, a system wide fail-safe protocol is triggered, putting Installation 05 and all the other Halo rings on standby for activation from a remote location, which Guilty Spark refers to as " the Ark ".
