From GuildWiki

The cape worn by the Ascalon Vanguard.

The Vanguard of Ascalon is an elite force within the Ascalon Army, lead by Prince Rurik and his second in command, Duke Barradin.

While the rest of the Ascalon Army, under command of King Adelbern, concentrates on defending the settlements of Ascalon, the Ascalon Vanguard play a more offensive role. Powered by Prince Rurik's strong will to defeat the Charr, the Ascalon Vanguards try to clear Old Ascalon from the Charr and even push into Charr territory north of the Great Northern Wall. They have established Piken Square as an outpost against the Charr in the Northlands.

Some members of the Ascalon Vanguard wear dark grey armor, while others wear the standard red armor of the Ascalon Army.

Halo 3

Vanguard is a Halo 3 Meta-Game Achievement. It is unlocked when the player earns 50,000 points while playing the meta-game on The Covenant. This Achievement awards the player 10 Gamerpoints.

It is represented by a blue circle with a coiling dragon, the symbol for a canceled Bungie product, Phoenix. A vanguard is the foremost section in an army.

It is relatively easy to earn this achievement, due to the length of the mission, which is the longest in the whole Halo Trilogy, according to Bungie.[verification needed]

Contents

Methods

On Normal, activate the Tough Luck, Famine and Thunderstorm skulls. Also, try to complete the mission in as little time as you can, as it is possible to gain a point multiplier at the end of the mission based on how much time you take to complete it.

Or if you have all the skulls you might want to try it on Heroic. With every skull but, Blind, Iron, Fog, and Black Eye skulls. Only try this if you're an experienced Halo player.

Trivia

  • Meta, in ancient Greek, means "after", so "meta-game" means "after-game".
  • This could also be an indirect allusion and reference to another designation for the Arbiter, entitled by the Prophets, "Vanguards of the Great Journey".
  • A Vanguard, by definition, is a heavy battle unit, usually carrying a large sickle, scythe, or blade during battle.
  • In the Halo 3 Ultimate Guide Magazine, it is stated that you only need to earn 15,000 points to unlock this achievement, which is untrue, as you actually need 50,000 points.
  • A Vanguard is the lead group in a battle unit, battalion or strike force. The term is from the Medieval times, when it referred to the lead advancing unit, or "guard", in one's military. It is a small and elite unit, meant to strike fear into enemies, and to destroy everything in its path, leaving nothing unscathed. To be in the Vanguard was the highest honor, as it required extreme bravery and skill.

Vanguard is an Autobot from the Generation One continuity family.

When Sideswipe is pounding some Decepticon to scrap with his fists, Vanguard is providing cover fire to make sure the Autobot brawler isn't interrupted.

  • Sideswipe with Vanguard (Action Master, 1991)
Only available with the European-market-only Action Master Sideswipe, Vanguard is a small cybertronic battle tank. Pressing a trigger on his rear section spring-launches the turret forward; while this is pointless by himself, when Vanguard is plugged onto Sideswipe's back, the turret flips over Sideswipe's head to act as a battle helmet.

History

During the Rikti War, shortly after the initial Rikti attack, The United Nations Security Council, led by Great Britain and France, formed an emergency umbrella organization to help coordinate hero resources in the worldwide war against the invaders. Called the Vanguard, this group was comprised of some of the world's best and brightest heroes.

The Rikti had taken their toll and famous super groups like the Freedom Phalanx, the Dawn Patrol, Midnight Squad, Regulators, and Hero Corps were down to only the toughest and most powerful heroes. With its decentralized command structure and international recruiting base, only the Vanguard remained a viable, organized fighting force.

It sprang into action immediately, and began to effect stalemates similar to the one that had been reached in Paragon City. The aliens' advances were halted, but it seemed impossible to take back the territory they had already seized.

The Vanguard initiated a plan to strike back at the Rikti using a plan by Dr. Science. Leaving only skeleton crews to man defenses, the Vanguard was split into two teams. Alpha Team was led by Statesman and Omega Team was led by Hero 1. Alpha Team was much larger and consisted of over 1,000 heroes which launched a frontal assault on the Rikti. It was a costly attack and 800 of the heroes lost their lives. While the Alpha Team attacked the main body of Rikti troops, Omega Team slipped into the main Rikti portal base, through one of the portals and after a huge explosion from the other side, the portal was shut down. Only one hero, the utterly invulnerable Ajax, managed to survive the blast on this side of the portal. It is presumed that the heroes that went through the portal have perished.

Thanks to the heroics of the Vanguard, the Rikti War was over, or at least the first phase of it was. Both sides were nearly shattered in the process. The Vanguard and the other great hero organizations of the world scarcely existed anymore. With the exception of Statesman and a few others, all the world's greatest heroes had died in the war. Trillions upon trillions of dollars of damage had been done to the majority of the world's most populated cities. Paragon City was the worst hit of all. Once a shining beacon of light and prosperity, now much of it lay in ruins. It didn't take long for criminals to start reasserting themselves, and new heroes were needed. It was the beginning of a desperate time that would last for decades.

Today, the Vanguard objectives are the same that they were years ago during the Rikti War. The organization opposes the Rikti wherever they show up, and so, the Rikti War Zone is a primary concern for the group, where they keep a strong presence encircling the downed Rikti starship.

But the Vanguard has a dark side too: Dedicated to stop the Rikti by whatever means necessary, they gladly recruit metahumans without any kind of distinction, not caring about the past of any new recruits. In practice this means that the Vanguard accepts into its ranks heroes as well as villains. This open door policy is causing a lot of tension between the organization and Longbow, whose point of view about the matter is completely different. Despite the fact that both groups fight for the same side and want to see the Rikti defeated, some of the Longbow leaders, such as W. M. Dietrich are especially critical of Vanguard.

And while the Vanguard fights for the planet as a whole and even has known villains in its ranks, villain groups such as the Malta Group or Arachnos are openly hostile to them, making its ally list even thinner.

Fighting an alien race in an open war, distrusted by hero organizations and attacked by villain groups, the Vanguard faces an uncertain future ahead. Only time will tell if the Vanguard and its allies succeed in their goals.

Structural Hierarchy

The Vanguard is split into 5 main divisions: The Helm, The Gauntlet, The Shield, The Herald, and The Sword.

The Herald - The public relations division is ran by a heroine named Incandescent. She's not normally on-site as she's usually too busy abroad working with the UN.

The Shield - The security division headed up by the sisters Levantera and Borea. Sharing the leadership between the two of them, together they handle security and most defensive roles.

The Gauntlet - The main offensive branch is headed up by the hero known as Serpent Drummer. Most troops that are visibly seen taking physical action against the Rikti belong to this branch.

The Helm - The intelligence division, headed up by the mysterious Dark Watcher. This division is dedicated in gathering information to help keep the Rikti contained.

The Sword - The counter-intelligence and special ops division is a secret branch headed up by Gaussian, and handles all kinds of cloak-and-dagger works.

The Lady Grey is the overall commander of the Vanguard and is both powerful and well connected. It's believed that she has been around as long as Statesman and Recluse. She sets the overall strategy of the organization and has Dark Watcher as her second in command.

Benefits

Despite the overall situation of the group and its relations with the rest of the world, metahumans who join the Vanguard may reap the benefits of their service:

  • Vanguard Medals

Just joining the Vanguard will net your char one medal. Continued action against the Rikti Ship can earn you another two. (Note that it is imperative that your char has the "Member of the Vanguard" medal if you want to earn Merits! I'm not sure you need to be a member of the Vanguard to earn the other two, but are completely related to the Vanguard.)

Image:Badge_vanguard_001.png Member of Vanguard

You are now a member of Vanguard and can earn Merits for defeating Rikti.

Image:Badge_vanguard_002.png Demolitionist

You have helped place 25 bombs on the crashed Rikti ship in the Rikti War Zone.

Image:Badge_vanguard_003.png Master At Arms

You have defeated the Rikti Master At Arms from the crashed ship in the Rikti War Zone.

The first thing a metahuman must do after joining is earning the Vanguard's favor. This can be done by earning Merits in battle. There are some way to do it: doing missions in the War Zone, defeating Rikti troops there or even attacking the Rikti Ship. Once enough Merits have been earned, they can be spent in different improvements.

The Vanguard can outfit recruits with the same Impervium Armor their troops use in battle. Each piece must be earned separatedly. (Please note that the Vanguard Armor is just one more option at the tailor and won't grant you char any special resistancer nor other benefits)

After fighting a technologically advanced alien race for years, the Vanguard has some high technology to offer to its allies: Mechs, Psi-weapons and even spells are all available to metahumans


The Vanguard is an NPC group that was implemented in Issue 10. The first contact with players happened during the closed Issue 9 beta, where a bug caused Police Radio missions to spawn this enemy group. When asked about it, Positron stated they weren't supposed to be seen yet.
