Previously we reported how we’d found a complete list of Halo 3 vehicles within the Halo 3 beta. Well, we’ve done it again, only this time with weapons.
Remember, this isn’t final, there could be more, there could be less. But it more than makes for interesting reading and gives a good insight as to what to exepct from the final game.
Fuel Rod Cannon
So the flamethrower returns, finally making it into a console version of Halo and the Fuel Rod Cannon too, pops up again after it’s brief stint in Halo 2’s single player campaign.
Most interesting though are the mentions of all new weapons, the Excavator and Gravity Hammer. Most likely of Brute origin given their larger involvement in the story this time around. We’ve actually seen the Gravity Hammer before, several times. Remember Tarturus wielding the ‘Fist of Rukt’ at the end of Halo 2 and the Bungie released documentary ‘Et Tu, Brute?’ also featured several Brutes swinging their own personalhammers in fits of rage.
But what will it do? Will it simply be a massive hulking hammer to batter people round the head? Or, as the name suggests, will it have special gravitational abilities as used by Tarturus and similar to that of say Half Life’s grav gun? Who knows, but the idea of a 7ft Spartan killing machine running around smacking foes through walls with an oversized hammer gets me all gooey.
As for the Excavator? Well… that just sounds nasty.
