Off the Interwebs, Six. It really does look like the front of a UNSC frigate. I assume it's a Forerunner-derived human weapon.

Well, if you all recall, I posted a rumor thread in which it was rumored that the Chief would face the creator of the Halo installations. Thats why I was wondering if he had it to see if it said anything about that.

Also, Slighty; weren't you the one to tell me not to trust the official xbox magazine when I posted that thread? Then by your logic, this image can't be trusted  ;)

It looks like the rifle equivalent of the Infinity. Looks like the 'Shield stripper' weapon mentioned in the Sparkcast. Maybe a plasma beam with a high rate of fire.

So you think it's the Assault Carbine, then?

I dunno. It just looks so beefy, I guess I'd be kind of let down.

Haha. I just mean that the weapon to me doesn't *look* like a shield stripper. Since they're going to be introducing new weapons I feel like they need to make sure that you have a general sense of the weapon. If it looks imposing and powerful--it should be.

Yeah you're right. It does look blocky, but perhaps that is a reflection of the progression on Forerunner tech integration in the UNSC. Maybe humanity hasn't quite gotten it small enough yet. Maybe, AH MAYBE It's a prototype, I'm sure the Infinity has a bunch of new gadgets on board!

They referred to this knew weapon as a shield stripper, right? Isn't the beam rifle widely considered the shield stripping halo weapon? So maybe it's simply a much needed overhaul of that. That's what I think.

It also looks like it might shoot arcs of electricity... that would strip a shield right? It probably shoots some form of beam, but you never know.

http://www.littleenglishhaloblog.com/2012/07/all-10-new-halo-4-weapons-discovered-or.html

Found this link on HBO;
 It seems that all of the new weapons have been found in some way.
    With the exception of the "Crossbow" most of the new weapons just look like Promethean weapons which are direct analogs from human or covy weapons, just bigger and stronger.... *Frowns at lack of creativity*

*better look at the crossbow thingy (under the character tab, find the promethean knight) (http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Product/Halo-4/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d8024d530919)
Title: Re: Sexy New Weapon
Post by: DangerousDave on July 23, 2012, 09:28:57 PM
Well, unlike revising established characters *cough cough Jackal godzilla* I'm not sure what you could do to Forerunner weapons from a gameplay standpoint. We've got weapons in every combat role already; you either make them fit into similar roles, or create "gimmicky" weapons that wouldn't fit easily into play (Cerebral Bore comes to mind.)

I imagine that since the Covenant are playing much less of a role in this game, their weapons on multiplayer maps and such will be replaced or supplanted to a large degree by the Promethean weapons (especially given the ordnance system--I haven't seen anyone with a Forerunner weapon loadout, although I might have missed something, but treating them as power weapons makes me assume they'll be more like drops rather than standard equipment.)
Title: Re: Sexy New Weapon
Post by: Tar Alacrin on July 23, 2012, 09:34:01 PM
Yeah, I was still hoping for like an Arc canon that shoots electricity or something, they could also do some kind of "flame thrower"-style weapon, where it deals damage to things withing a certain range and spread, as long as they remain in that area...

And also, yeah, i just saw the jackals! WTF 343?!?!?!?!!?

Fyrewulff on GAF whipped up this excellent image:

(http://i.imgur.com/8WmXI.jpg)

:D

On the subject of weapons though, I do agree that there could have been more variety, but making a flamethrower-type weapon like you describe would unfortunately likely mean we wouldn't see it that often. As I understand it the flamethrower causes severe networking issues that don't exist for other types of weapons--which is one of the reasons it barely appeared in multiplayer. I imagine you *could* work around those issues if you devoted more resources to it, but then the matter comes that you've created another close-range weapon, etc...

Personally I was expecting the Forerunner weapons to be similar to the Sentinel Beams (another forgotten multiplayer weapon.)
Title: Re: Sexy New Weapon
Post by: Tar Alacrin on July 23, 2012, 09:56:36 PM
Were they really "forgotten"? cause the beam rifle was basically the same thing, and people used that all the time. So its more just a matter of balance

But dont forget we do see at least one weapon that is very similar at the start of the E3 gameplay, when the elite gets fried. That beam looked like it could have been a sentinal beam analog

All joking aside, that is a radical change. Granted, I think it looks cool, but seriously....

For all the Covenant (hell, for the Prometheans too) I don't think they're bad designs. But they aren't Halo, in feel or in continuity.

Youre right though, it is supported canon i guess. I think i'll be able to get behind the changes soon enough

"The Kig-Yar have been seen in a variety of shapes and forms, possibly due to their uneven distribution across multiple worlds and dramatically varied environments in their own system"

Good enough for me, I guess.

 
Am I the only one who likes the new Jackals?

Not at all. I think that model looks really defined and, well cool. It's just like Dave said, at first glance they don't look like something that would be in Halo. I first thought it was a joke and Photoshoped. As long as this isn't THE jackal model of the game, as in we see these other variants, then I welcome the change.

As much  as I hated fighting the skirmishers in Reach, I actually hope we see a variant similar to them as well.....unless that image was supposed to be the skirmisher variant.
Title: Re: Sexy New Weapon
Post by: DangerousDave on July 24, 2012, 12:45:45 AM
Exactly. I doubt we're going to see any nods towards continuity, though. So far it appears the Chief comes out of cryo wearing the new armor, wielding new BRs and fighting Jackals and Grunts we have never seen in 30 years of war, and solely these individuals.

And there's absolutely no reason for that.
Title: Re: Sexy New Weapon
Post by: That Gunslinger on July 24, 2012, 08:28:30 AM
I really like the design, but I would have preferred to have kept the variant that have the large over-bite, rather than this under-bite. Still cool though. I know I've said this before but as long as the changes don't get massive, then I couldn't care how many things are redesigned. As long as the universe doesn't get redesigned again I'll let 343 off this once. THIS ONCE.
Title: Re: Sexy New Weapon
Post by: Tar Alacrin on July 24, 2012, 03:10:28 PM
 
When you look at the different variants throughout the games already, I think it is actually a bigger shift for some of the jackals to suddenly develop "beaks" than it is for some of them to have underbites and Godzilla heads.

I also strongly doubt that they will put multiple jackal models in the game. Although for a reason as to "Why we havent seen these variants" I think it goes back to the massive shift in Power with the covenent.

Another point ive been thinking about is this title of "storm-" that has entered into the Covenent sandbox. We have "storm-grunts" (curtesy of that toy-box) and the "storm-rifle". Which are basically variants of things in the covenent already, but radically overhauled and changed. (the name Storm-grunts refers to the shark grunts)  I was wondering if "storm-" is the prefix used by the covenent splinter-rebels that we are fighting. And the "storm-Covies" have bred/recruited their own savage variants of most of the races. (so these jackals would be the "storm-Jackals")
  Just a thought.

Also, as to why we havent seen them for 30 years; they could have been there ,but due to their horribly disfigured and mutated anatomy, they were just locked up or exiled or enslaved. (which would make them all the more willing to join a rebel army trying to overthrow their oppressors)

That's pretty interesting. Though since there is the distinction, that could suggest that the 'normal' variants may play a part (unlikely but you never know).

Retcon the dinosaurs out of existence with Halo 5 and I'll be happy.

Tar's point seems a good one, although "Storm" seems perfunctory and rather plain for the Elites. Maybe it's short for "Right Fist of Stormy Vengeance Brotherhood" or something.

Well, according to this Machinima video, complete with no sources, your thought seems to hold true.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HXw7wwRhLE&feature=g-user-u (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HXw7wwRhLE&feature=g-user-u)

Skip to about one minute in.

Assuming what is stated actually is true, I did have the following thought:

Why does this faction even exist? Granted, I'm sure it would be explained in game at some point, but the video states that this rogue faction embraces the prophet's ideology. How is that possible? After the great schism, didn't Truth, the last remaining "prophet" take all of his forces through the portal to the ark? I mean, I dont think that was ever fleshed out, but I think it is safe to imply they did, so wouldn't all of those that still followed Truth have died there as well? Didn't all of the elites despise the Prophets after the brutes took over? Why would any of the elites follow this faction?

Title: Re: Sexy New Weapon

This was a random thread to resurrect for this line of thinking :P

I'd take everything that guy says with a grain of salt, considering he thinks the good old Jackals will still be around in Halo 4 :|

That said, he's mostly right about what we know about the Storm, extrapolating from Glasslands. The "fundamentalist" faction Telcam joins with aren't pro-Prophet, they're "pro-Forerunner". They still believe in the Forerunner's divinity, and think that some of Arby's tales about the fate of the Forerunners amounts to heresy. So it seems they really still believe in the Great Journey, or at least some promise of transcendence through Forerunner tech.

Its called Control-C, and then you hit the quote buttun; and then press Control-V
Quite simple really ;D

And i would point out, that while i haven't seen the video, being pro-Forerunner (ie: telcam and Co) is the same thing as embracing the prophet's ideals; Cause the prophet's ideals were pro-forerunner. You could embrace the prophet's ideals, while still hating the prophets themselves.

I see your points. So did you guys already figure this next part out?...

The Kilo-Five series' sole purpose is to establish the reason behind the "Storm" faction of the Covenant we will be fighting in Halo 4. I just saved you the time and money you would have spent reading glass harder and glass hardest.  :D Your welcome.

And of course, the Forerunner trilogy will establish what this new ancient enemy is, and apparently this weapon stored in Requiem, according to Machinima. One of the exhausted attempts that was made to stop the flood before the firing of the array? Can there be a weapon for devastating than the Halo array?
Title: Re: Sexy New Weapon (And Even More Weaponry!)
Post by: DangerousDave on August 09, 2012, 01:56:53 AM
We'll hafta' find out! *Dun dun dun*

But since you've resurrected this thread about weapons, time to feast our eyes on some new weapons (I assume the entire human arsenal).

http://halo.xbox.com/blogs/Headlines/post/2012/08/08/The-Halo-Bulletin-8812.aspx

My takeaways:
*Medals are simpler than Reach, but far and away improved over the ones we'd seen previously--and a cool effect on their fade-ins.
*The Sniper no longer has the really ugly hose.
*I like the progression of the shotgun. It's more streamlined-looking than Reach, and while not as elegant as the simple CE-3 versions, looks pretty nice.
*SAW, meanwhile, is sort of a throwback as far as canon, but it looks like it will have an interesting niche role in theory.
*Urgh still ALL CAPS MIDDLE TEXT that I'm not a fan of, at least in conjunction with the VO. One or the other, please (preferably the audio.)
*They referenced the fact that animations with the pistol are faster, which I think is a fantastic way to make it more powerful while keeping it a sidearm--make it a quick-pull finisher.

I think the SAW is a welcome addition to the UNSC arsenal, and frankly, I'm surprised we haven't seen something like it in previous titles. It's like having a dismounted turret with (presumably) smaller caliber ammunition that does less damage, but has a higher rate of fire and doesn't slow you down, although the recently announced Pathfinder specialization will allow you to move somewhat faster with a detached turret.

I also wonder if the title SAW is an acryonym for something (Semi-autmomatic weapon doesn't seem to apply :P). I suppose it could also just means it will saw your ass in half.

But while we're on the subject on new weapons, it seems that a new Forerunner weapon may have been leaked in the UNSC arsenal video that just recently came out. I hate to say that I found this out through Machinima because I'm not a fan of this series, but nonetheless, it is a good find:

(http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSskCmX-fhqz8BLvyGnSd-ao8FXTEspP3jucLyPt1wpoBAEpLCp4at3gknxHw)

SAW stands for squad automatic weapon. It's supposed to be an automatic weapon that's still portable enough to be operated by one person--usually they also use the same rounds as assault rifles to save on logistics, so I wonder if it spits out the MA5D ammo we're used to...

Still wish the Forerunner weapons were more... Forerunnery.

Although; it is oddly reminiscent of the forerunner pistol-swords we saw in legends:
