New templates[edit]

A possible alternative to listing weapons that existed beyond the Covenant in this template: after Halo 5 is released and we have a decent idea of what weapons the Swords of Sanghelios use, we could create a weapons/vehicles/etc. template for them and even 'Mdama's Covenant. That way, we aren't just grouping them all here or on similar templates. Any thoughts? --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 17:56, 24 October 2015 (EDT)

Yes to an SOS weapon table, but probably no for the JMC.Sith Venator Mega Blastoise.gif (Dank Memes) 17:59, 24 October 2015 (EDT)
Yeah, I can see why there would be problems with the JMC template. --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 18:11, 24 October 2015 (EDT)
Now to not be too SOS centric we could just have it be a Covenant remnant template. I assume this isn't going to overlap with older weapons? And we'll probably do the same for the Covie vehicle template.Sith Venator Mega Blastoise.gif (Dank Memes) 18:13, 24 October 2015 (EDT)
My only problem with having one for JMC or other remnants (even if they are all grouped together) is that JMC has essentially used every non-human and non-Forerunner weapon and vehicle at this point, so it would basically be the same template as this one but with the newer ones. The SOS's weaponry and vehicles seem to be mostly new, so there would be very little overlap with the Covenant template. While most remnants are essentially martial cults or mercenary groups, the SOS are a legitimate government so it's much easier to organize stuff like this. --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 18:32, 24 October 2015 (EDT)
I still think it would be better just to label it generally as Covenant remnants, especially for things like the Harvester and Kraken which the JMC used but the SOS didn't. But yeah there wouldn't be any overlap. For example this weapon template would include the Type-54 plasma pistol, but not the T-25 plasma pistol despite the JMC using both.Sith Venator Mega Blastoise.gif (Dank Memes) 01:03, 9 November 2015 (EST)
I'd say maybe make a template for Sangheili post-war weapons but I'm pretty certain that a source stated that the Kig-Yar are responsible for some weapon manufacturing. --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 01:19, 9 November 2015 (EST)

The templates wouldn't be practical at all if you couldn't find all the variants of the same weapons or vehicles next to each other... (eg: Separating the post-war T-54 plasma pistol from the T-25 plasma pistol, just because they weren't used by the same factions) Maybe we should just change the title into "Covenant and Swords of Sanghelios weapons", if you really want to point out that some these weapons are used by the SoS...

Template Split[edit]

Like the UNSC weapon templates. Would it seem fair to split this template now also? Seeing as there is lots of weapons in it now. :) - CIA391 18:50, 14 March 2016 (GMT)
