The Master Chief one is perfectly logical.

He weighs 1000lbs in his armor. And it has electronics and **** .

Water sounds like a bad idea. A reeeeeally bad idea.

Well... He can walk on the bottom! At least a few plases in halo 1...

I thought he was 4-5 tons not 1?

while they could use compressed helium as an emergency dont-sink device (the suit would way to much to make floating easy, but its possible to counteract weight, the servo-motors in the suit would boost his swimming power to above that of an Olympic grade athlete and they could waterproof the suit, also the suit allows him to stay alive in space when he needs to so that means it has an oxygen supply, therefore even if he couldn't float he could just walk around at the bottom of the ocean until his air ran out and thanks to the wonders of compression and purification he could have hours and hours worth of oxygen supply even with him breathing heavily (this estimate is not realistic to current technology but halo is set in the future with more advanced transport and weaponry, obviously they would have improved life support systems)

Also, in Halo: Combat Evolved he could walk under water for an infinite amount of time without dyeing.

sorry to be that anon but its what his armor is made of not his weight

in which he will still sink to the bottom of water faster than a rocket, i forget what its made out of but its definatly got water density over 1.0

it's titanium.

But if it's so advanced, how come they can't think of a way to make an already air-sealed suit capable of dealing with water?

Shield emitters are external, and I assume they would short out on prolonged contact with water. The suit IS watertight, though.

It's ultra high-tech machinery and not a soul thought to make it water proof?

Also compare it to something simpler, a phone case, they have phone cases you can drop from high in the atmosphere and the phone be fine, but the phone case has only enough water resistance to survive a light rain.
Also he has flaps and **** on his armor they don't exactly show, and the new one at least has jets.

Humans are 70% water
Armor kills the user when enters in water
Master chief is 70% dead

Don't tell the covenant. They could use waterguns.

but why can he fall from space and live but if i walk him off the side of a 7 or 8 story building he dies
User avatar #135 to #16 - huntergriff ONLINE (01/16/2013) [-]
...you shouldn't be walking him off the side of a 7 or 8 story building in the first place...
#77 to #16 - hillbillypowpow ONLINE (01/16/2013) [-]
his armor locks

He doesn't die in water
It's a massive mix up due to people making assumptions..Like the end of inception (The fact everyone things the spinning top is his totem when it's his ring, meaning it's not a dream, because he isn't wearing it.)
Master Chief dies if he crosses map boundaries. There are always boundaries near huge areas of water, so you can't walk into the ocean forever. However if there are none, you can walk around underwater all you please. (See, Sierra 117, and any underwater forge map

You just blew my mind with that inception thing! :I

Seriously, I'm mindblown! :I

Its half a ton. (assuming metric) Also he has about 1hr30mins of vacuum in his suit. He could just walk out of the water.

You would think they would be insulated and have a buoyancy devices like how most scuba gear has

That and he's never learned... too much training and **** since he was 7 years old.
#11 to #4 - moviebuff (01/15/2013) [-]
But he was trained for space travel, they train astronauts in pools to prepare them for antigravity so I'm assuming this wouldn't be much different.

i bet he was training in water and junk, even though it was never mentioned in any of the books. ever.
