I wonder has anyone ever tried to save the marines besides me

I'm curious to hear people's responses to this because
they are not easy to save
I'm not asking anyone to do it(if you do though you are
as tvtropes puts it Crazy Awesome)
Don't matter if it's halo 3 reach or odst(but this is an odst thread so
let's attempt to keep it to that)
But anyway can't wait to hear replies.

The only time I have ever attempted it was in Halo: CEA for the achievement. Otherwise most of the time I just end up killing them for their ammo, because they are always in the way, or they SUCK!!! at driving.

depends on the difficulty but usually the marines are cannon fodder

Probably the only Halo game I didn't complete. Such a boring storyline. Never picked it up since.

I try, but for the most part, it doesn't really work.

I used to try when I was new to Halo, but I've long since learned that it's a waste of time and effort unless there's an achievement tied to it.

Yes the marines suck at driving. But they have thsir uses.

In ODST, when playing uplift reserve, feel free to use your spartan laser until it has one shot left. I normally target the ghosts and choppers. As long as it has one shot you can swap it with a marine. Not because you want his crappy rifle, but because when he has the laser, it has unlimited ammo. And it turns out marines are a crack shot with it.

So my usual tactic is to get one marine on the gun turret to handle grunts etc and my buddy with the spartan laser riding shotgun. You can speed around the tanks and they die in 2-3 shots depending on the difficulty setting. Much easier and more effective than stealing a wraith imo.
