Read the books. At least the Fall of Reach. Amazing book, explains a ton. And yes, the armor is called Mjolnir.

In the hope you have read the first reply, the armor was so refined and precise that basic marine would snap themselves in half when using. Just read the books. They are fantastic.

It's the type of armor that chief wears.

name of the armor the chief wears.

It's what the Master Chief's armor is called.
User avatar #9 to #5 - trostell (01/15/2013) [-]
The code-name for the armor worn by Master Chief, and all UNSC Spartans, was the name of Thor's hammer, because, like Thor's hammer, which could only be weilded by those of Asgard, the armor could only be worn by Spartans, due to it's unique sensory interface and sheer weight.
User avatar #578 to #9 - randomnab (01/16/2013) [-]
Just to add something, it can't be worn by normal humans since it enhances every movement you make. Normal humans don't have as much control over their body and every accidental twitch is turned into a bone breaking spasm by MJOLNIR.
User avatar #565 to #9 - mruserfj (01/16/2013) [-]
And the fact that it pretty much crippled any normal humans that tried to use it. Think of the start of iron man 2 when we see Hammer's attempts at building a suit
User avatar #559 to #9 - rogglando (01/16/2013) [-]
Not to mention that the pressure it puts on a person would kill a normal human, Cause the armor is not just there to protect the spartan, it is also there to enhance the spartans strength, agility and stamina. And only a spartan can handle that kind of pressure.

whoa son u got thumb fever people dig halo knowledge I guess
User avatar #484 to #9 - RequieminMortis (01/16/2013) [-]
The biggest reason only SPARTANs could wear MJOLNIR armor was that they had the reaction time necessary to control the armor. There's a scene in one of the novels for the series where a marine simply moves his arm while testing the Mark IV armor, and the armor reacts so quickly that it tears his arm out of it's socket.

More Halo trivia!
Did you know that the two moniters that were revealed, 343 Guilty Spark, and 2401 Penitent Tangent, are powers of 7 in correspondence to their respective Halos?
7^4 (Alpha Halo, aka Instillation 04) = 343
7^5 (Delta Hallo, aka Instillation 05) = 2401

Bungie really loves the number 7.
User avatar #541 to #442 - DoggyBouncer (01/16/2013) [-]
They have created 7 Halo games.

Halo 4 being the 8th but that was made by 343 so it doesn't count
#464 to #442 - supahsayin (01/16/2013) [-]
It's their favorite number.
User avatar #414 to #9 - CTscan (01/16/2013) [-]
i'd love to say this is true, and most of it is, but no one from Asgard can wield mjolnir but thor. for only he had the strength to wield it. however the rest is true
User avatar #412 to #9 - angreif (01/16/2013) [-]
In fact, at one point in one of the books they tested it on a normal marine. It broke every single bone in his body and he died of internal bleeding.
User avatar #417 to #412 - nightmaren (01/16/2013) [-]
I think it went something like, he tried to move his arm, but the sensitivity or something caused that arm to shatter, and then some other bones shattered, and he started convulsing from the pain, and since he lost control of his movement, and started flailing around, and since every movement ****** him up, every bone in his body shattered, all because of his pain convulsions.
#385 to #9 - anonexplains (01/16/2013) [-]
And the fact that normal humans operating it caused broken bones from moving so fast.
#374 to #9 - willwyn (01/16/2013) [-]
A normal guy once tried to wear it, the armor reacted so quickly he could not control his movements and ricocheted around and snapped his spine.... Poor Bastard
User avatar #408 to #374 - warrenzthehero (01/16/2013) [-]
More than that.

The armor was too sensitive, and his first movement broke his arm. He flinched and reacted with pain, causing another armor-overreaction, and another broken bone or two. The chain reaction cased all these pain-spasms that caused him to literally break himself to death.

During training a normal marine tried to move his arm Mjolnir and broke his arm. Read it in a book..
User avatar #418 to #336 - nightmaren (01/16/2013) [-]
He did a bit more than break his arm.
User avatar #330 to #9 - smokekusheveryday (01/16/2013) [-]
Also because the force of the suit snapped a normal marines arm in half the spartans are augmented to handle **** better
#287 to #9 - anonexplains (01/16/2013) [-]
Genuinely impressed by the knowledge you bestowed upon me. Please, take this thumb.
#253 to #9 - mikeW (01/16/2013) [-]
Thank you. I have never understood that until now. I am not worthy, Chief...
#236 to #9 - anonexplains (01/16/2013) [-]
not weight. it was due to the increased reflex time. the spartans' modified bone structures could withstand the shock if they accidentally hit something (like chief does when he first puts on the armor and salutes, which bruised his hand instead of shattering the bones there.)
User avatar #201 to #9 - lithiam (01/16/2013) [-]
don't forget the Gungnir helmet...has one eye as a reference to Odin and Gungnir is also the name of Odin's spear

That and, the strength enhancers are dialed up so high that without the SPARTAN's carbon fibre bones, the pilot's arms would literaly pulverise whenever they moved them.

no mjollnir existed in 4 varients before it was used by spartins

The armor wasn't very heavy for the user...

User avatar #69 to #9 - Surtur (01/15/2013) [-]
And the fact that if your where not genetically enhanced and your bones reinforced with carbon fiber the armor would literally break every bone in your body. When the UNSC first made the Mjollnir armor, they tested it with a ODST Trooper . . . it did not end well

And the fact spartans are 7ft tall.

To add onto your point,
If it was worn by a regular human the outcome would be kindof like that one scene in Ironman 2 where the suit of armor made by Hammer Tech totally destroys the test pilot's spine.
Only the Spartan bodies can deal with the stress that the MJOLNIR armor gives in order to provide a boost to their strength.

TL;DR: Spartans are already jacked as all hell, but if you make it so their armor grants inhuman strength, it grants even more BAMF powers.

Tis also why they cannot swim, though they should be fine to walk underwater?
User avatar #264 to #28 - xxdarknightxx (01/16/2013) [-]
yes, and after halo 1, they drown. and water becomes highly effective in destroying both spartans, and vehicles.
#16 to #9 - anonexplains (01/15/2013) [-]
That and they have a fetish for norse-related things for their secret projects. The YGGDRASIL heavy walker project, for example.

I asked the same question when I saw it. Apparently that's the name of his armor.
User avatar #7 to #6 - quitethedelicacy (01/15/2013) [-]
I see. Thank you kind sir.
