Playable Characters

  • Player 1: Master Chief, Abu
  • Player 2: Arbiter
  • Player 3: Maccabeus
  • Player 4: Jun


The game is fairly similar to Halo. It has the same difficulty settings (easy, normal, heroic and legendary), has the same controls and actions and there is one possible ending, with no different paths the player can take throughout the game. Levels 1 through 5 are played through as The Master Chief, and the rest of the game is played through as Abu.

New Features

The Covenant has a few new features not in (but maybe mentioned) in Halo. These features include:


  • More weapons added (see weapons)


  • New enemies (see enemies)


  • New multiplayer game type- Bot Mode- Player can play against AI characters in multiplayer instead of other players. These are Grunts, Elites, Jackal, or Hunters

Single Player

Single player mode is a campaign as Abu & Master Chief. Although it is called single player, many other players can play in co-op.

Multiplayer

For multiplayer matches, it is similar to Halo multiplayer mode; it has the same game types plus one extra (see new features), and is played on maps not used in the campaign. Up to 16 players can play altogether (either by means of a system link or Xbox live), and can compete in free for all or team games.

Enemies

To reduce spoilers i've instead decided not to reveal new enemies until after each Campaign Mission. Here are some of the more "common" enemies you'll be facing.

Grunts

Some useful tips:

    • Can be dispatched with a few body shots and are weak against ballistic weapons.
    • Are dangerous in groups and the higher the rank, the more likely thay are to throw plasma grenades
    • Have 10 health points.
    • Ranking Scheme is as follows:
      • Minor
      • Major
      • Heavy
    • Will weild the following weapons:

Jackals

Some useful tips:

    • Use a charged Plasma pistol shot to take down their shield and quickly switch to a carbine for a headshot.
    • When in groups use grenades to your advantage.
    • They usually lead several Grunts into battle, always target a leading Jackal first.
    • The ones armed with Carbines generally do not activate their shield right away, try to pick them off with a headshot before they do this.
    • Have 15 health points.
    • Ranking Scheme is as follows:
      • Minor
      • Major
    • Will weild the following weapons:

Brutes

Some useful tips:

    • Use a charged plasma pistol shot to take down their power armor and then switch to a Carbine for a headshot.
    • The Needler is a very useful weapon against Brutes, use it whenever you have it at your disposal.
    • Brutes are very vulnerable to their own weapons, pick up and use dropped weapons used by Brutes when they are killed.
    • Take them out quickly, In Halo: The Covenant it is costly to loose too many allies.
    • All Brute Infantry have 20 health points, while all Captains all have 50.
    • Ranking Scheme is as follows:
      • Infantry
        • Infantry Minor

Trailer

This trailer opens showing text, "First, they nearly wiped out the entire crew of The Pillar of Autumn." It cuts to The Ark as we see a Flood controlled Covenant Carrier go zooming past the camera and into a slipspace rupture and come out at the other end and go flying by the camera once more. "Then, they found and infected the Covenant city High Charity." We see it gaining momentum, and entering the Atmosphere of an unknown planet. "Then, they found Earth." We see it start to burn in the atmosphere of the plnaet, obviously nearing landfall. "They tried to invade Earth... but they failed." Peices of it begin to melt, and brake off. "Who's to say they won't try it again?" We pull back away from the ship and, sure enough, the planet we see the ship crashing towards is... shockingly, Earth. Fade to black, "Only this time... what if they succeed? We then see "The Great Journey" appear on the screen, followed by, "Rise of the Flood." We then see Abu walking down a hallway in new white armor, followed by Master Chief, Jun, and The Arbiter. We then see flashes of Elites and Brutes locked in combat, a massive creature, possibly Bogartus, a UNSC Frigate crashing, Master Chief using a Flmaethrower, Abu rushing at the camera with his Hammer, we then see scenes being flashed so fast we can't even tell what they are. The Trailer comes to a close as we see the release date.

Zenith

Plot

This is the opening of the game "The Great Journey 2: Rise of the Flood". The game starts with an opening showing the ruins of the Ark. We see a Flood ship fly by the camera and enter a portal. Cut to: Fall From Grace, Ext. We see several Phantoms exit a Covenant Capitol Ship which turns out to be The Incorruptable. Cut to: Fall From Grace, Int. We see Abu helmetless and Master Chief in the background with his back to the camera and his arms crossed, we can see his signature Assault Rifle on his back. "So tell me Spartan, what was she like?"

  • MC: "Who?"
  • Abu: "The A.I."
  • MC: "Cortana? Oh... well. She was... smart, intelligent... and (sigh), so full of life... and and and hope, and she really cared about me..."
  • Abu: "And you cared about her."

Abu stood up, we can see that he is armorless and has a robelike clothing on, he placed his hand on the Spartan's shoulder.

  • Abu: "I know what its like..."
  • MC: "What do you know?"

Master Chief shrugged Abu's hand off and walked to the other side of the tall, circular room. Cut to: Master Chief's visor. In the background we can see Abu.

  • Abu: "My father, Utra, was killed by the Flood, i had to kill him so that he wouldn't become one of them."
  • MC: "Then... I guess me and you aren't so different... after all."

We then see a door open and Prophet of Satire come rushing in.

  • Satire: "Abu, the spectators are waiting, the promotion ceremony is at hand!"
  • Abu: "Do not fret Satire, I will be out at a moment's notice."
  • MC: "Well, lucky you... i'll see you at the ceremony."

And with this Chief and Satire departed through separate doors. Cut to: Fall From Grace, Main deck. The Main Deack is three stories high and on every floor there were Covenant Elites, Grunts, and Hunters, aswell as UNSC officers. At the bottom of the room we see The Arbiter, R'tas Vadum, Master Chief, Jun, Codee, Salos, and Ivee and Zoee all lined up, obviously waiting for Abu. Then Satire enters through a door. Followed by Lord Hood.

  • Lord Hood: "Thank you all for coming here today, it is unusual to see Covenant and Humankind standing next to each other as though we were brothers and sisters. But it is the way it should have always been. As you can see an old friend had joined back with us today, after he was thought to have been dead, he is back, and willing to serve the UNSC another day, Master Chief." The croud appluase.
  • Satire: "Yes, it is good to see an old face..."

Master Chief looked confused, as he cocked his head a little.

  • Satire: "Er... well, you get what i mean. Anyway it is an honor to see..."

Satire is interrupted when a door opens. Cut to: Door, side. An Elite head appears infront of the camera, helmetless, this is Abu. Abu puts his helmet on and as he does the camera pulls back to reveal bright white armor, almost holy armor with gold forerunner glyphs on it. His helmet when he puts it on is White also.

  • Abu: "Sorry i'm late, didn't want to miss the party.
  • Satire: "'Ahem' It is and Honor to see The Covenant and Humans to be standing beside one another, ready to fight for one another, look up to one another, and die fr one another. This is why we have these proud officers here today. Everyone, the Arbiter, who lead the Elites with a blind fury and courage that no other could even imagine who fought to the death against Brutes, Flood, and many others who dared stand in his way." The Crowd Applause.
  • Satire: Also with us today w... h...v... (his tones are droned out as the screen fades to white and we see a Phantom fly away from the Fall From Grace through a window. Master Chief looks through the window.
  • Crewman: "Sir, you okay, maybe we need to test your targeting sensors, do you want to?"
  • MC: "Yeah, just run one quick one on me so I can get to the mission.

Gameplay: All you have to do here is look up at one flashing panel and then look at the one down. After you do this Gameplay is over.

Whisper

Plot

This level starts out in the back of a Pelican. You can look around but you can't get out.

  • Sgt. Stacker, V.O: Alright you leathernecks. The last transmission from Whisper base was from this area and it sounded as though they were in great struggle. The last time The Covenant were heard of was from this area aswell. We have reason to believe that they were involved. They were cut off in the attack which has lead us to believe that they're gonna try it again. Master Chief, you have been instructed to lead a strike team to defend Whisper against any Covenant that happen to attack the base, you got that striaght?

The Pelican lands.

  • Sgt. Stacker (cont.): Now move out!
  • Marines (Unison): Hoo-rah!

Master Chief will automatically hop out. As soon as you're on the ground your first parameter is to find the base. You'll find yourself in the jungles of India, on the edge of a cliff. There is a path that runs along the edge of the cliff. Follow this path until you come to a cave, your starting weapons are an Assault Rifle and a Magnum. These are very ineffective in the situation ahead, as soon as you exit the cave there is a Brute torturing a Marine on a log, very similar to Halo3eh? He'll be asking for security codes and the marine will simply say, "You see this mouth? ASSHOLE! You ain't gettin' nothin' outta it! The Brute will lift him up and throw him off the log, if you save him though he will show you to the base. Continue through the gorge and you'll meet up with some Grunts and a Brute. Greet them with grenades. Head up through the trees and you'll fight many more enemies in this area near the waterfall. Take their weapons and head through the waterfall into the cave. In the cave the Grunts and Brutes in this area have set up a perimeter with Plasma Cannons. Kill them and take a Plasma Cannon. Once outside you'll come across a sort of "Grunt Camp". A couple of them will be snoozing, tap these out nice and quite. Use your assault rifle to take out the patrols. As soon as you kill these Brutes, Grunts and even a swarm of Drones will assail on you. Pick up a Needler and blast away. Go through the next set of paths and you'll come to an area. Down in the valley below you'll find a base, at the entrance you'll see Brutes, and Marines fighting. Aid the Marines and kill the Brutes. One of the Marines will tell you that Marines are being held hostage inside the base. But before you go in you will see your first Phantom. It will deploy Brute and Grunt reinforcements. Kill these and follow the Marine into the base. When you come around the corner to see a fimiliar, alien face. Abu will be holding a Brute up against a wall with one hand.

  • Abu: Where, are the hostages!?
  • Brute Chieftain: Hahaha, so you think that you along with your heathens can end this war?
  • Abu: No, but I can end you!

Abu will lift the Brute Chieftain into the air in throw him into a pile of Fusion Coils that will explode, so don't get too close. Abu will wield the Gravity Hammer that he stole from the Chieftain and speak to you.

  • Abu: Ah, Spartan, nice of you to join us. Hurry, the hostages are this way.

Follow Abu to a room where a cutscene will commense. Abu and Master Chief will enter a room where many Brutes are killing Marines.

  • Abu: Hey! You Apes might wanna pick on someone your own strength.
