Technically..[edit]

Love all the work you're putting in. The page about SWORD BASE kicks ass. Gotta say that the weapon in Nightfall is technically a chemical weapon, not a bioweapon though.TheEld (talk) 22:39, 29 September 2018 (EDT)TheEld

I agree, but on the other hand I can forgive the Nightfall weapon's inclusion on the page for the sake of accessibility for readers, seeing as 343i and people in-universe (as far as I can recall) refer to it as a bioweapon. (That, and I've actually encountered people who were confused about the absence of the Nightfall weapon on this page). The technically incorrect terminology could be noted somewhere, but at worst it can be thought of as a case similar to Marines occasionally being addressed as "soldier" in Halo. --Tacitus (talk) 05:51, 30 September 2018 (EDT)
I listed it as a bioweapon because its specifically called a bioweapon in Nightfall. That always kinda confused me but its the Halo universe's term for what was done so I went with it. I personally never got how it was supposed to be a bioweapon and agree with the whole chemical weapon thing fitting better. Maybe add a bit of Trivia about that to the main page saying that its technically a chemical weapon but is called a bioweapon in the movie thing. Also, thanks for the comment about the Sword Base page I created. I intend to create a Second Battle of Sword Base page for when they go back in The Package. Hence calling it the first battle. I seem to have a real flair for creating those battle pages. The vast majority of the hundred and something battle pages on the Supernatural Wiki where I'm an Admin are my pages. I also created several battles for the Stargate Wiki and Gears of War Wiki.--WarGrowlmon18 (talk) 16:27, 30 September 2018 (EDT)
Whatever its chemical/elemental origins, it had an obvious effect on Sedran biology....I'd be ok with it labeled as a bioweapon. -ScaleMaster117 (talk) 13:20, 1 October 2018 (EDT)
Just about every weapon ever created affects the biology of the victim...usually in that it stops working.--D9328 (talk) 17:55, 1 October 2018 (EDT)d9328
