Spartan III vs Boba Fett
 
What do you think would happen if a Spartan III and Boba Fett went into a face off?
I personnally think the Spartan III would win. being that they have armor abilities and they have access to more weapons than boba

RC-1183 12-19-2010 09:45 PM

I think Boba would win, cuz they dont have as good armor as the S2s. Also S3s are trained to work in a team Boba works alone.

SmootheOperator 12-20-2010 09:08 AM

The Spartan 3 is designed as a disposable Spartan, they are cheaper to make and train, the Spartan 2 program made the best of the best with no expense spared. Boba Fett however has Beskar, which can deflect a light saber blade. Boba has had an entire life of pain, sufferring, and still came out on top. He has the experience in unorthodox fighting and surviving at any cost. My money goes behind the Fett.

Delta RC-2235 "Cyro" 12-20-2010 12:11 PM

never heared about spartan III! just spartan II! and what are spartan I?
the spartans in halo wars maybe?

but...if the master chief would fight boba he'll win! cause he is stronger, faster and better trained than boba! and they''ve got better armors! so a spartan III would win easily!

SmootheOperator 12-20-2010 01:41 PM

The Spartan 1's were failures, they did not perform up to expectations, and were relocated, if not 'retired'. The Spartan 2 is the outcome of learning from the mistakes, and perfecting it. Master Chief is a Spartan 2 and could destroy a Spartan 3 with little difficulty. A Spartan 3 without armor, would be a good match for the Fett. But my money still goes behind the man in green

But... both Boba and Spartans wear green.

Mandalorian Mercenary 12-23-2010 12:54 AM

Lol :p What if Boba fell in a bucket of paint before they battled?

HockeyGoalie35 12-23-2010 07:25 AM

welcome to the forums Chloe!


and i would have to say spartan, they have a MUCH larger experience with weapons.

SmootheOperator 12-23-2010 10:24 AM

If you really wanna be picky, the guy with the Mythosaur skull on his armor.

Commander Dimal 12-23-2010 02:31 PM

Don't tell me we're going through another Star Wars vs. Halo phase. There have already been a million threads like this one. The mods always end up locking them up because it either turns into a flame war or a spam fest. But if you want to keep this one, you will have to be careful.

SmootheOperator 12-23-2010 03:30 PM

Is there a green Spartan 3? I kinda lost interest in the Halo universe after ODST. But Master Chief was a Spartan 2, the thread is a Spartan 3 v. Boba Fett, so unless we are talking a specifically green Spartan 3 v. Boba Fett, my "money behind the man in green" still stands

Chloe Ze Übermensch 12-23-2010 06:44 PM

do we have a general consensus on the effectiveness of flamethrowers vs. shields? I'd like to see Boba barbecue some Spartans. It'd be like roasting tinned meat.

Bungie and LA should just team up to make a Halo vs. Star Wars movie just to quell the arguments...

RC-1183 12-23-2010 08:49 PM

Ha i agree, most likely the spartans shields nor armor would hold.. also if you would like an example of a S-3. Look at Noble Team in Halo: Reach, minus Jorge, he's a S-2.

SmootheOperator 12-31-2010 02:34 PM

If we are including any weaponry in the respective universe, would the Spartan 3 be able to use something like the Brute Shot or the Fuel Rod Gun? And would Boba Fett be able to use any of the weapons in the Expanded Universe? That could open up an entire new world of pain, and complexity.

Maybe i'm over-complicating things

HockeyGoalie35 12-31-2010 02:40 PM

^ the man speaks the truth

Commander Dimal 12-31-2010 05:00 PM

There's no way to be exactly sure of the outcome. I've seen so many vs. discussions that I can tell you that you can put two different franchises together and discuss it, but still get nowhere. Different people have different opinions. Think of it as a balance scale. Some people favor one side more than the other. It's more of a popularity contest. I can guarantee you that which ever side is more popular will have more people supporting that side saying that they will win. That would greatly affect people's decisions which would make it impossible to look at this from a neutral point of view. Different franchises have different styles and natures than the others, some just aren't meant to be put together, so you can never tell what will happen. Seriously it's the same thing everywhere. Star Wars vs. Halo, Aliens vs. Predators, Wow vs. The Lord of the Rings, Naruto vs. Bleach, and many others. Type in any of those on Google and see how many results you'll get. It depends on which is more popular. If one side has more support, then people are more likely to find ways how that side would win. There's too many possibles because both worlds are unique in their own way. Balance is different in each franchise.

SmootheOperator 12-31-2010 05:38 PM

thats the hilarious part. Same thing with Deadliest Warrior, no one can say for sure who would win, you can argue with people until your face turns blue, and nothing will have changed. But arguing in itself is an art form, do it properly, and you can sounds really intelligent, i do it all the time. I hope this isn't spamming, but you will find paople who will defend to the death that the sky is not blue, but a very light shade of purple, it is still fun to argue with these people.

or you can do what i just did, and bring everyone's brain to a screeching halt with something so rediculous, only someone with a huge amount of time on thier hands would argue about it. But still funny.

On a more serious note, Star Wars has such a huge following, I have no doubt who would win. I have yet to see "Halo Celebration 1"

^ This.

Additionally are we talking about Boba Fett with actual beskar'gam or Boba Fett with duraplast/durasteel beskar'gam? For these threads I feel that the topic starters need to set rules about the armor, weapons, items, etc.. That way it is much easier to make a comparison.

Regardless, you all know my opinion on the winner, just check my avy ;).

LordOfTheFish 12-31-2010 05:57 PM

Technically they are incomparable seeing as they come from totally different worlds.

This is also very true.

Commander Dimal 12-31-2010 07:18 PM

^Which is what I was trying to say.

LordOfTheFish 12-31-2010 11:36 PM

I would assume that if these characters had access to any weapon in their respective universe than Bobba Fett would take the win.

It's really hard to pin anything up against Star Wars when it comes to technology. Rinku had a good point when he mentioned that the topic starters of these thread need to have some sort of idea of what goes and what doesn't.

With this broad of an arena thousands ( maybe millions, it's hard to really know for sure ) of outcomes are possible.

SmootheOperator 01-01-2011 08:56 AM

as far as armor, i don't think Durasteel Beskar can hold up to as much as the traditional Mandolorian iron, forged by Mandolorian metalsmiths. Genuine Mando Beskar Gam is capable of deflecting a lightsaber blade, Spartan Mojlnir armor cannot stop an energy sword. I am assuming that an energy sword and a lightsaber are comparable.

michonicle 01-01-2011 09:46 AM

Well, they're both made of 'energy', so I think they'll be the same. What about vehicles? Are they fighting on foot or are they able to use vehicles?

HockeyGoalie35 01-01-2011 10:12 AM

but what vechilces can a commando use? who knows what he can use? he could use an LAAT but we dont know if he was trained or not

Which is why I was asking. Boba had durasteel beskar'gam until about 40 ABY. Thus enforcing there should be a set of rules for these threads

SmootheOperator 01-01-2011 01:59 PM

since we are running on a thread that has no rules, other than the participants are Boba Fett and a Spartan III, should we all agree on a set of standards, or just scrap the whole thing, and start a new thread with better defined criteria?

If we continue this thread, we need either Tyeia to set the standards, as they created the thread, or we need to have limitations created, and agreed upon

RC-3556 01-01-2011 02:21 PM

Alright, no vehicles, no armour, Both have the same blasters, no other weapons, no help, and a symmetrical battlefield with cover e.g Halo Reach Noble Map Pack's anchor 9

michonicle 01-01-2011 03:27 PM

I think Boba Fett would win then. I think he's a better shot with a gun.

What happened to his beskar'gam after 40 ABY then? Boba Fett will probably win. He's had a lifetime of experience while the Spartan III's are meant to be disposable like the clone troopers. Alright lets make a list of standards. I guess Arc troopers, commandos, and Mandalorians are meant to be the equivalent of Spartans in Star Wars.

I would say judging by his history there isn't anyone in the entire Halo universe capable of taking a Fett.

michonicle 01-02-2011 08:34 AM

If you survive a Sarlacc, you can survive anything. And didn't he survive a fight with Darth Vader?

SmootheOperator 01-02-2011 10:31 AM

The Spartan has all his weapons linked into his armor, without that he has to do it the old fashioned way. His strength and speed also comes from the mechanics in his armor, without it, he is just a very smart, but normal person. Boba Fett has had a lifetime of doing things the good old ways that are reliable, and he knows how to make it all work. The win by overwhelming force, goes to Boba Fett

RC-3556 01-02-2011 11:03 AM

Conclusion: Boba wins. Thread Closed

Mandalorian Mercenary 01-03-2011 02:22 PM

We can close threads?

Yes, but I believe only the original topic poster is allowed to do so. Besides, others may want to still talk about the topic.

Chloe Ze Übermensch 02-07-2011 02:01 PM

Aren't Spartans meant to be genetically superior to normal humans? Like, super strong and suchlike. Boba'll need something more convincing than 'I'm fast I can dodge it' methinks.

HockeyGoalie35 02-08-2011 07:32 AM

true, and Spartans have that re-chargable shield....

SmootheOperator 02-08-2011 05:23 PM

the shield comes with the armor. the armor and weapons are null in this competition. Yes the Spartans were engineered to a certain degree, but i don't know in what way, or what specifically was alterred. But according to the Halo wikia, Spartan III was designed to use "superior tactics, teamwork and sheer numbers". they might be a force to behold as a team, but as a one on one, i think Boba Fett still has the edge. He is used to working alone.

HockeyGoalie35 02-08-2011 08:38 PM

Well, Master Chief was a great loner. who says the others wern't?
