Jackals in Halo 2: "Sniping's a good job mate."

I'm pretty sure that Jackle shields in Halo CE also turned red after a number of shots, it's not just from Halo 2 onwards.

The Jackals have got to be the most diverse in all the Covenant species. Many variants and subspecies (assuming the Skirmishers aren't the only ones) from avian to reptilian-like appearances. Would be cool to see the reptilian Jackals in Infinite alongside Skirmishers for extra Jackal variety.

“Makes Linda-058 look like a drunk skeet shooter.” Oof, shots fired. Literally.

Master Chief: simply looks at a jackal

I certainly miss the armor variations. Halo CE's helmet ones and Reach's armored Skirmishers in particular. We barely see any armored Skirmishers till much later in the game

It would be nice to see a jackal firing squad, the shields for suppressive fire while riflemen(carbine or plasma rifle) shoot behind them.

Skirmishers are awesome! I wish they were in more halos, there’s so many interesting things that could’ve been done with them in reach that just weren’t.

Edit: ok y’all can stop telling me that they’re in infinite. I watched the campaign footage too! I mean, why the heck would go back to a comment that I forgot I even left in the first place just to update with arbitrary information? Besides, even if I didn’t know, a single reply would’ve worked.

I honestly would like to see the H4-5 Jackals added as an enemy subtype akin to how the Skirmishers operate; maybe carrying heavier weapons or having some sort of shield that expands to cover multiple units, like the Cabal Phalanx from Destiny 2.

I think Jackals are the only covenant species where I kinda like their 343 redesign, that being said Halo 3’s design is still my favourite

This sniper jackal just killed enough Spartans to become a shipmaster

I always loved them in halo 1 when they had helmets, it made them look more soldierly and civilized than just them acting like crazy dinobirds the covenant just set off a leash like later games..

7:19 their shields also turned red in the original Xbox version of Halo CE, the mcc has the gearbox port which ruined a lot of transparent objects in game

The jackals in halo 4 are actually a sub species just like the skirmishers. They're called Ibie'shian

Just for the note, the CE jackal's shields glows red when shoot as well, what happened is that the port they used for MCC was from the PC not the OG xbox. The PC version have a lot of problems whit bump maping and transparente lights like the jackals shield.

Halo 2 Jackles look cool, but PTSD tells me to hate them
