Haha, this is such a stupid argument! It is impossible to prove anyone's point.

Except mine of course! Space Marines would bitch slap Spartans and turn them out on the street corner for some beer money.

And they have better equipment...and training...and they're stronger...with better armour.

This is pretty one sided, and yet here we are on page four.

Let's keep in mind that Space Marines have 37000 years on the spartans.

Yeah, marines would still own.

Congratulations, your dismissive and conclusory commentary has provided nothing to this discussion or the wider community on whose behalf you arrogantly presume to speak nor does it engage in any meaningful way the remark it lamely targets. But you did manage to gain experience points toward your next level of internet tough guy.

QFT
It's impossible to tell considering the 40,000+ year difference. It's like comparing a man with a gun today to a man with a spear/club 40 000 years ago. Who would win? I think that a spartan is far superior in combat tactics and equal in strength to a spaz marine, but technology-wise the spazies would win hands down. Saying that, a spartan laser would win.

step 1) Spartan aims laser at a SM.
step 2) SM companions see him.
step 3) SM companions think he's impure or something of the like.
step 4) SM companions kill him.
Step 5) Rinse and repeat until only one SM is left to fight/he kills himself thinking he to is impure.

Space Marines are a head taller, better armed, better armored, stronger, tougher and not afraid of anything.

No contest. Space marines would drop their guns out of pity and tear off the Spartans' arms. Then maybe use them as clubs to put the poor Spartans down.


I Don't agree to part 1: The helmets look like biker helmets
I agree to the rest!

And of course, Speiz Merinz would pown them Halo guys...much in the same way orkish said...

1. Spartans cruise like hardcore down the street in their phully sikk buggies(warthogs or whateva their called) when they see a uber pimped Rhino on the other side of the road.
2. Spartans don't like the Rhino and start shooting
3. When (after half an hour)the Spartan pram's...sorry buggy's...Cannon still hasn't managed to even scratch the paint of the Rhino the Spartans get angry(Scary )
4. Space Marines notice the Spartans and open fire
5. BOOM!
6. Space Marines drive off.
7. The Spartans don't.

This is a stupid thread.

Space Marines would win because they possess better armor, better weapons, and all around better technology.

Your match up's don't make sense anyway.

Why would the Spartan be using a Plasma Rifle? That's covenant tech.

Besides a 40K Plasma weapon and a Halo Plasma weapon aren't even in the same league.

None of the weapons are matched fairly.

You might have just posed the questions:

Who would win in a fight - five really, really strong guys w/ uber tech vs five regular guys with regular tech.

MAGAZINE.

Thank you.

I've finally found another person who actually knows the difference between a magazine and a clip...and gets annoyed when the terms are used interchangeably (hint: they shouldn't be.)

Wrong.

Both Bungie and GW have written enough fluff, and talked about weapons in their respective universes that conclusions can be drawn.

Weaponry in Halo isn't that much more advanced than what we're using today, just go check out the weapon profiles on Bungie's site.

Again, this is a stupid question because the answer is obvious.

Plus fictional matchups are worth talking about...if you're 12. I am ashamed to have posted in this thread.
