Jameson Locke (service number: 73808-3153-JL) is a Spartan-IV character from the science fiction video game franchise Halo and a protagonist of Halo 5: Guardians. He has received poor reception as a character overall.

Why He Sucks

  1. He had a lot of potential to be a well-written character, but that potential was thrown out of the window.
  2. He takes up way more missions in Halo 5 than Master Chief and Blue Team do!
  3. He caused Halo 5's likeability to downgrade. In other words, he, along with the rest of Fireteam Osiris (except Buck and especially Holly Tanaka), ruined the game, as hinted at in pointer #2.
  4. Compared to the members of Blue Team, he barely resembles a Spartan supersoldier and more like someone out of RoboCop met Vanquish and Crysis.
  5. Despite his experience working with ONI (Office of Naval Intelligence), he is nowhere near as powerful as the Spartan-IIs of Blue Team (Chief, Fred-104, Kelly-087, Linda-058).
    • ONI is also known to be a dangerous shadow organization in the Halo lore.
  6. He managed to crack Master Chief's helmet visor, but ultimately was defeated by it.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Ike Amadi does a decent job voicing him.
  2. He was slightly better in the mini-series Halo: Nightfall.
  3. His armour, the MJOLNIR Hunter, is actually a cool-looking set of armour at least.
  4. He's modelled on MIKE FREAKING COLTER. Colter also voiced him in Nightfall and the Halo 2 remaster, although his voice acting was considered flat by some.

Trivia

  • In one of the Halo 5 campaign missions, there is a glitch in the co-op that allows players to assassinate Locke, thus causing someone playing as him to spectate the other players for the remainder of the mission.
