Halo 3 info leaked: new weapons, vehicles, features and Collector's Edition
Posted by XanTium | October 27 13:38 EST

 
From xbox360fanboy.com:


It wasn't long ago that Bungie sat down with gaming magazines around the world to share the first real information about Halo 3. And it looks like Swedish magazine, Level, has the dubious honor of being scanned first. To be fair, these aren't exactly scans, but we'll take what we can get. The magazine reveals new details about weapons, vehicles and multiplayer.

Weapons
Spiker - a new Brute weapon
Spartan laser - a laser that tears vehicles apart
Nail Grenade - sticks into walls and sends nails everywhere

Vehicles
The Mongoose is in! This is the ATV that was cut from Halo 2. It seats two and has no weapons. Designed from recon and quick travel.

Multiplayer goodies
The "Man Cannon" - Spartans do their best Human Bullet impersonations for some extremely rapid transport. Players can still shoot in the air, and can be shot down.

Controls
The X button has a new, still secret feature. Reloading has now been allocated to the bumper buttons. Right bumper reloads the right weapon, and the left bumper reloads the left. Genius.

Miscellaneous
You can now see your secondary weapon when it's not in use. In other words, it's actually slung over your shoulder instead of magically appearing out of thin air. Also, a 4 DVD "Legendary" edition is planned that will have material from Red Vs. Blue, documentaries, and a collection of all cut scenes from the game (possibly the whole series?).

Please take this info with a grain of salt, as it has all been translated from a Swedish mag that we've never heard of.

+1. I don't understand the whole, you can see your secondary weapon unless they plan to have a third person view blink.gif

4 dvd special edition, tongue.gif This is why there is blueray on the ps3.

Oh and all this info is just a scam. Just read this part " A taste of the Halo movie will be on one of the disc" yeah right so they are gonna include footage from a movie that will never be made? love.gif

Also like the quote that says halo is gonna look like crap we are not gonna have any details in it. love.gif

And the one that says halo 3 will have halo 2 MP. love.gif

And the one that says we have been working on this game since 2001 (halo MP) but are to lazy to put in Bots love.gif

Who acctually made all this up ? Stuck in the icehotel and bored jester.gif

Man that's awesome. I hope the nail grenade is a proximity mine (sound like it, but...). Man cannon sounds uber sweet too. I can see it now, launch me, launch me. It's a bird, it's a plane, no it's Master Chief laugh.gif
