It's UNSC. But what is it?

Forerunner tech. Dear lord I can't wait to get my hands on that.

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  ;)

Well, OXM doesn't really do its own art as far as I know, so we can assume the cover has some semblance to reality :)

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.

Seems likely, but you never know. And try to be positive about something man! 343 just want to make you happy! This is why we can't have nice things! :P

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!

It looks like it could be like a Beam-Rifle Type weapon or something similar...

It actually reminds me of a human version of the Covenant Sniper Rifle from 2000.
