*REVEALED* Halo 3 Vehicles – Hornet, Pelican, Phantom and more!
May 19, 2007, 2:23 pm
Filed under: Halo 3, News

When digging around in Hex editors with the code of the Halo 3 beta you can find so many things. Some good, some bad, some impossible to decipher. This particular find, I’d place into the good catagory.

New Vehicles!

Here’s the list of vehicles found so far within the beta code data:

Mongoose
Warthog
Hornet
Pelican
Scorpion
Ghost
Brute Chopper
Spectre
Shadow
Banshee
Phantom
Wraith

So some old favourites are returning (Scorpion, Wraith, Spectre) along with some familliar but up until now uncontrollable ones too (Phantom, Pelican, Shadow), and the introduction of some entirely new vehicles on top of that (Hornet, Chopper). There really will be no need to walk anywhere in Halo 3.

I’d take a guess and say the Hornet is a UNSC version of the Banshee, a one man flying vehicle with a little fire power – that way the vehicle sides are a little more balanced now that we’ve got the Mongoose and all, and it keeps with the UNSC’s habit for naming vehicles after wildlife. What is most interesting though, is how big are the maps going to need to be if we’re all flying around in Pelicans and Phantoms? The beta code we’re dissecting contains all the text for onscreen messages such as:

Hold RB to drive Hornet
Hold RB to operate Pelican Turret
Hold RB to drive Shadow
Hold RB to ride in Phantom

So it’s in there folks, we’re gonna have a whole lot more to play with this time around. There may be more, this is just what we’ve found so far in the beta code, and who’s to say it’s all even in there? Stay tuned.


Digg!

Fake

Comment by buttonbasher

It’s all there in the code. Admittedly, there is time for things to be changed before release.
This is after all, a beta release, but I assure you the tags are in there.

Extract the files and look yourself if you want harder proof.

Comment by Feenix

I think he meant “fake” as in “Bungie isn’t going to put stuff like that into beta code that’ll be available to the public”.

Comment by Fartnog Buttstinkle

isnt the hornet the escape vehicle like from the pillar of autumn and other ships of that sort?

Comment by peter

Or maybe he meant fake as in “you are a fake halo fan, and an embarrassment to the modding community”

Comment by Real classy guys

What makes him an embarrassment to the modding community? He’s the only one i’ve seen publishing results about this, and he’s not an embarrassment at all. This is stuff everyone wants to know about.

Comment by nygrissplz

the “bumblebee” was the name of the POA escape pods.

Comment by lawls

You can’t claim it’s fake, especially when Bungie has not directly claimed that anyone diving into the Beta code is pulling up false information. At least they haven’t yet.

Comment by Grim

I hadn’t heard of the bumblebee before. But, another escape vehicle from the Pillar of Autumn was the Longsword.

Comment by Theperson45

Too many vehicles. I’m not looking foward to the hornet. And I don’t know how bungie is going to implement stuff like the dropships in multiplayer. But lets hope they pull it off right.

Comment by A7X Eric

I think the dropships would be an excellent addition to online multiplayer, especially in Capture the flag games it will add lots more strategies to the usual storm with a warthog tactic i’ve seen in many CTF matches… any agree???

Comment by AJphoenix91

some how im not sure i can trust this info. since i cant read the text myself and even if i could get it from u guys i wouldnt be able to kno whether it was authentic, that means that i’ll have to trust that you guys arent just trying to get our hopes up.

Comment by joe

Listen, just because these vehicles are in the game, doesn’t mean you’ll be using all of them. The Pelican appeared in the vehicle code of Halo 2, also. But you never got to drive it. Also, nowhere here does it show any concrete evidence that you can drive it. It says you can operate it’s turret. Whoopedy Doo. And you can ride in Phantom, still nothing about driving.

Comment by BSX Catalyst

It would be sweet if thy made a really open map like in space or at High Charity (the covenant home base) with little platforms at places. Perfect level to use dropships and pelicans.

Comment by Nathan

*they

Comment by Nathan

well if im not mistaken i belive seeing an indpeth break down of one of the vidocs that in the back round a picture was pointed out on a screen that looked like a tricked out ghost/motorcycle/spikeything that was suspected to be a vehicle, which might just be the chopper

Comment by radiant

scorpion isnt new :-( it was in Halo 1 stage 5!!!

Comment by skippy1234

I had a dream. Halo Battlefront. Back to bed now.

Comment by Paniczoo

well Fartnog Buttstinkle even if that was what he ment he’d still be wrong Bungie for reasons only for thier own DID do that

Comment by Avraxyn

give it one or two weeks im sure right after the beta there will be a huge annoucment by bungie revealing all the info needed to get us waiting to stand in line for weeks ready to buy this game lol

Comment by nick

What so will we be able to drive the pelicans or not

Comment by The Hunter

Bungie did say that you wold definantly need a vehical to move around on Jub-Jub, because its so big. dropships?

Comment by scuba

Jub Jub isn’t the big map. You just got it confused because Bungie talkd about Jub Jub and the “Ginormous Vehicle Apocalypse Map”

Comment by LostprophetVII

I was looking through the Beta code aswell and found new weapons such as; Ecavator, Flak Cannon, Gravity Hammer, Flame Thrower, Claymore Grenade, Firebomb Grenade, Fuel Rod Cannon, Smoke Bomb, Radar Jammer.

Vehicles such as; Mauler, Chopper and Hornet.

Gametype: Infection

Comment by Sam

I know you are telling the truth, but how do you find those? I searched every part of it. At least we know that Flak Cannon is fuel rod, maybe firebomb is a frag and claymore a spiker? The internal names for things are wacky.

Comment by LostprophetVII

The brute chopper IS a ligit vehicle. I have seen the pics from the gamepro magizine and those pics look pretty real. This is real becuase gamepro does not false advertise and it shows the map Shrine. Shrine is that “Ginormous Vehicle Apocalypse Map”. On the magizine page it tells about the map and it shows the Chopper and a bunker in the background. Also, on Shrine it has towers that gun you down if you go too far outside the map. (Like the turrets on Snowbound)

Comment by ryan

actually these are real for bungie admit the brute chopper though some of these mite be cut in the final version of H3

http://www.bungie.net/News/content.aspx?type=news&cid=12548

Comment by ION 360

Theperson45: the long sword wasnt a escape pod it was a fighter they showed 2 chasing down a seraph fighter in a cutseen in halo 2. iremember seeing a viecle modle that some one made a wile back that resembled a pelican but mor hevily armed and with 2 seets, Is there a conection?

Comment by N Fox

it says “Hold RB to ride in Phantom” very much like the ride in side seat function on the warthog. Not necessarily drive it but more, ride in the bcak

Comment by Teka

The longsword wasn’t a drop pod OR a fighter it is a bomber. It’s the human equvilent to the seraph. I don’t doubt you will be able to ride in a turrent of a pelican in campaign and maybe take control of the rear turrents in the phantom . Not for MP however.

Comment by Ghostbuddy

lol, I found most of the stuff in the Beta code, and most likely the actions for the pelican and phantom are for campaign. So don’t jump too far ahead of yourself

Comment by I2aMpAnT

i have the full game and the ginormas map can spawn drop ships but u half to put it on manually it is not defult

Comment by i live in utah

wait you have the full game im 99.9 recent shure you dont have the final game

Comment by x_kenney_x

I know what the Hornet is, its basically the Pelican with stubby wings, rocket pods and a gattling gun, and the tail is kinda different, its almost looks like a helicopter without a propeller, and the brute chopper can be seen in the newest trailer

Comment by ghostwinter

an early concept of the Hornet

Comment by ghostwinter

ALL OF THIS IS AWSOME

Comment by lou is the bomb

I HOPE THEN YOU CAN USE ALL THE VEHICLES IN MULTIPLAYER AND CAMPAIGN

Comment by lou is the bomb

Actually i think \this is AWSOME i cant believe all the new stuff going to be put in but now that you mention it i dont think you will be able to fly the pelican or the phantom it will just be like in halo 1 when you go into the back of the pelican to fly away from “The Silent Cartragropher” It just sez hold RB to enter the GUNNER SEAT of the pelican and hold Rb to RIDE in the Phantom… I was hoping to fly these vehicles but sadly im pretty sure you just ride them out a level. But it is still cool that you will get to use 2 new vehicles

Comment by Sam

I doubt you will be able to fly a dropship, you can only do that in Halo Custom Edition for PC with the right maps, and I think thats as close as we’ll be getting to that. Gunning from a pelly while being chased by banshees on the other hand… awesome.

Comment by Woot

maybe the turret is something that was on vahalla, like in th full version there is a turret in the crashed pelican that you can use

Comment by blarg

Bungie already made the Elephant. It can hold the flag, players, vehicles, and it has a turret on it. Why need the pelican and phantom?

Comment by LooneyCass1

is the elephant indestructable???????

Comment by ryguy

@ryguy

Yeah, the Elephant cannot be destroyed.

Comment by 7th Columnist

hey for forge can you put like a whole bunch of vehicles everywhere because now since every human vehicle there is a cove vehicle i wanna make a game where its like cove vs human
banshee vs hornet , warthog vs spectre, wraith vs scorpian , ghost vs mongoose ro like just have a big air battle with banshees and hornets is this possible

Comment by ryguy

yeah, I’m gonna do that in forge as well.
And also spawn fusion cores in the sky and rain them down on the enemies!

hehe…

Comment by D-thunda

what all can you spawn can you make like a race track

Comment by ryguy

hey 7th is there anyway you can get a vid of the elephant and hornet in action

Comment by ryguy

@ryguy

don’t get your hopes up, but 7th may be able to.

btw, 7th, when halo 3 comes out, I wanna have a game against you.
On sandtrap, 1 on 1.
If you’re interested leave a comment saying so and I’ll give you a game.
you’ll pwn me, but meh.

Comment by D-thunda

hey what other support weapons do yall think will make it into halo 3 , aside the turret , covy turret , flamethrower, and missile pod , i think the brutes will get one , and i think it would be cool as hell to have the hunter cannon, any ideas???

Comment by distinguish

FLAME THROWER AND FUEL ROD GUN ARNT NEW THEY ARE IN HALO COMBAT EVOLVED PC

Comment by DATAH

@ryguy, I’ll see what i can rustle up, but I make no promises…

@D-thunda, You got me. 1 on 1 Sandtrap, anytime. :)

In fact, if anyone is interested in gaming sometime, my GT is The7thColumnist. Updates are coming too guys, don’t worry… (I see you seem to have it ticking over anyways) There’s loads of stuff happening on the site at the moment, including some niftly little changes, but rest assured, we’ll be resuming our semi-regular schedule very soon.

-WIERD!-

Comment by RODJOB-Xbox LIVE (Australia)

The hornet is good online for dropships because there a harder target to hit and if u had a pelican it would be pretty stupid cause it can hold 10 people and theres onle 16 players on the map and you would’nt be much room to move around in beacause common. if there was a pelican on say…..coagulation you would like jump in it at by the time you like get to max speed you would already be on the other side of the map but it would be pretty sweet to use the troop carrier warthog online because you could get your team and go like across the map doging missiles and stuff then you drop 4 troops of then go back to base and pick up the other 3 plus the pelican would be boring to ride and they should of made the moongoose have 2 guns on the front-see you online (RODJOB):-)

Comment by RODJOB-Xbox LIVE (Australia)

Flaming Hayubusa = Bungie staff only.

Comment by 7th Columnist

thnx 7th columnist
