*REVEALED* New Halo 3 Weapons – Gravity Hammer and Excavator!

Filed under: Halo 3, News

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.

Assault Rifle
Battle Rifle
Beam Rifle

Brute Shot

Gravity Hammer
MagnumFree Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us
Missile Launcher
Plasma Pistol
Plasma Rifle

Fuel Rod Cannon
Rocket Launcher
Sniper Rifle
Spartan Laser

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.

Just because the Gravity Hammer is in the game, doesn’t mean that it’ll be in multiplayer. The Gravity Hammer was in Halo 2 as well, but it was only in Single Player. It was in the TAGS! It wasn’t accesible to players.

The magnum? Not the pistol? And what the hell is a flamethrower doing in Halo? Get that crap out of here

Comment by A7X Eric

I can’t think of one person who enjoyed the pistol more than the magnum.

Comment by jy

i remember seeing some concept art of the chief holding a flame thrower in the early developement days of halo 2… i was hoping for a flame thrower. i enjoyed the pistol more than the magnum, to be honest the magnum was pretty crappy but i suppose maybe the pistol was too powerful

Comment by AJphoenix91

the flamethrower is from the pc version of halo:ce … which was actually what halo was first planned for.

Comment by joe

um, hey jj, you couldn’t be more wrong.
the magnum was useless, the trident was amazing. the trident was a short to mid range weapon whereas the magnum was small and shit like the smg.

Comment by diacu

I think EVERYONE liked the pistol better than the magnum. Heck, I think everyone liked the pistol better than EVEY wapon in halo 1. Also, the flamethrower is certainly not new. It was in the PC version of Halo. However, it was kindof lame, so I hope they make it more interesting in H3

Comment by Oreo

Its the pistol as well as the magnum, I think you should make it more clearer. And if all this is true, I just can’t imagine what the maps will be like!

Comment by LostprophetVII

wow… you guys can’t tell the difference between halo 1 screen shot and the new halo 3…

the flame thrower is from halo 1, look at the health bar.

Comment by xgc pr0ph37

To the above…lol, it’s a pic showing what the flamethrower from Halo Ce yes, but it is there so people can see what the H3 Flamethrower might resemble.

Comment by BrokenWing

Wtf…that screenie of the flamethrower is from halo pc..

Comment by ddd

no way buddy ( sarcastic voice ) look at the post abovee you

Comment by Orion255

A gravity hammer is pointless because there would be no ammo (unless there is some kind of gravity power) so it would never run out. It would still be fun to crush peopel though hehe

Comment by Grunt-Master

From what the et tu brute vid showed it looks like when you hit somthing it gives out a gravity puls, maybe it has slpash damage or something. even if it has infinte amo its not like it will have a lung like the h2 sward.

Comment by N Fox

wow dats quite a few nice weapons

Comment by {NR}Seal

what is that one gun in the top picture?

Comment by kg

never mind.

Comment by kg

you know, the flamethrower tags could have been there just for fire effect and they named it flame thrower just cause. the gravity hammer will be in halo 3, they saw a spartan carrying one at the E3 demo and another on a spartan’s back. the scarab was used for excavation before the war or something, so maybe the excavator has to do with scarabs, possibly a hidden scarab gun?

Paco…your face…

Comment by Master Tricks

Comment by distinguish

WHY do are random people showing up and commenting on fairly old articles?

Maybe just because H3’s getting close people are Google-ing it or something… how are they even finding this place?

Seriously guys, if it’s old hat let’s get off the topic.

Comment by K-Bizzle the Dizzle

“WHY do are.” Geez, I should read what I write before I post it.

Comment by K-Bizzle the Dizzle

Comment by Ihop

Comment by Master Tricks

The Gravity Hammer showed up in one of Bungie’s newest videos on http://www.gameinvasion.comcast.net. Ditto the flamethrower. The gravity hammer can stop a Warthog at full speed or hit a rocket out of the air… assuming you can time your swing correctly. The video only showed about 5 seconds of footage from the flamethrower, but it was in a multiplayer game (obviously played at Bungie, because the Hammer and the flamethrower aren’t in the Beta).
But, speculation is pointless now because the game comes out in 2 days…

Comment by Ethan

Comment by dion

Old News and not nearly as kick ass as the flamethrower.

Comment by Lupus

the pistol could zoom 2x making it the best weapon possible to cap whoever with 2 shots

Comment by GreyWolf

What is the excavator weapon?

Comment by somethingsomething

i dont know if u all heard bout this but the spiker can pin ppl to walls o.o, and my friend and i got the legendary version of h3 today, the helmet is so damn awesome

Comment by XXentiel

Comment by XXentiel

8 inch Super AMOLED display blurs the distinction between a traditional phone
and a tablet. If you’ve got one, planning to get one, will get one or think that it’s
going to be in that box under your Christmas tree,
then you absolutely must know what accessories are perfect to go with it.
Would you agree.

Strength of character doubtless ensue in exchange to get more. Express gratitude you|
