What Happened to Red Team in Halo Wars 2?

Red Team members in Halo Wars 2 are hero units who act identically to their Halo Wars counterparts. They immobilize the target with an EMP when a Spartan hijacks a vehicle. Also, the Spartans are able to traverse lower or higher ground impassable to normal ground units with their Spartan Slam ability. Also, this ability can be used to damage or kill opponent units. If it is used to hijack the vehicle, it is going to stun opponent units nearby.

Once hijacking, the enemy vehicle is going to be immobilized until the hijacking process has been completed. But, it will be able to be cancelled if your hero was killed in the middle of hijacking. In the campaign, the Red Team is able to be revived when they are downed. Each Spartan in multiplayer is given to a UNSC leader as a hero unit. For your information, the standard version of Jerome-092 is tasked to Captain Cutter, Alice-130 is tasked to Isabel, Douglas-042 is tasked to Professor Anders, and a special version of Jerome is available to Jerome himself.

The multiplayer units cannot be revived. They have to be bought at the UNSC Armory. In the campaign, the Spartans are fully upgraded to level three upgrades. While on Multiplayer, each Spartan starts without upgrades with a Magnum as their weapon, except for Commander Jerome who utilizes Hydra MLRS.

In Halo Wars, members of Red Team have a regenerating shield bar besides a health bar. The regenerating shield bar recharges once a short time and creates the classic depletion and recharge sounds from the original trilogy. All Spartans count as Hero Units. If their health is empty, they are going to go down at which point their health bar starts to regenerate. Once Spartans have half full health bar, then downed Spartan will be able to be reenacted by touching them with another unit with your control. The Spartans have ability to hijack opponent vehicles and also commandeer the vehicles, same with John-117 in the original trilogy, however at a slower rate.

Aside from that, there is an implant upgrade which is able to be earned that gives Spartans the power to hi-jack vehicles more effectively. Due to Spartans are more effective, any vehicle driven by a Spartan is going to get a stat boost compared to the standard vehicles of the same kind. Spartans will not be able to be damaged by Flood pod infectors while their shields are intact. But as Hero units, Spartans are immune to being infected anyway.

Actually, Red Team is not usable outside the Halo Wars campaign, even though the player will be able to train and field up to three anonymous Spartans in Skirmish mode or in Multiplayer. Unlike Red Team, those anonymous Spartans are able to be killed when their own health is empty. But, more Spartans are able to be trained back up to the limit of three. In the campaign, Jerome takes a Spartan Laser, Alice uses a machine gun turret, and Douglas utilizes a homing rocket launcher. The chain gun and the Spartan Laser are Spartan weapon upgrades, but Douglas’ rocket launcher is a unique weapon.
