Added DiffLines:

* LimitedWardrobe: Master Chief wears his MJOLNIR armor at all times, even the award ceremony at the beginning of the game, where you'd expect him to wear a dress uniform like the other characters do. Lampshaded by Johnson:
--> '''Master Chief''': You told me there wouldn't be any cameras.
--> '''Johnson''': And you told me you were going to wear something nice!

Added DiffLines:

* ShowsDamage: One of the changes from the first game is that vehicles can now show damage; however, this is purely cosmetic. Vehicles are still tied to the player's CriticalExistenceFailure, so you can drive around with your vehicle on fire for as long as you want if your health stays above zero. Also, you can still fly in a Banshee even after its had both of its engines shot off.

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: After Regret is killed, the Prophet of Truth orders the Brutes to replace the Elites as the Honor Guards, setting the stage for his long-planned slaughter of the Sangheili leadership who were more prone to questioning the Prophets than the more fanatical Jiralhanae. In barely a day's time, Truth's betrayal not only splits the Covenant in half and provokes a massive civil war, but it also gains the humans a critical ally in the Elites who realize the truth about the rings.
