New Halo 3 Flamethrower Warthog?

Over at ascendantjustice.com, Drew spotted something interesting in the background of one of the GamePro scans – is this a new Warthog variant?

It sure looks a lot like a flamethrower rests on the back of the hog where the machine gun would normally be to us, but maybe it’s all just an illusion caused by something else in the background. After the discovery of new medals for incinerating opponents with a flame based weapon, we knew the flamethrower would finally be back, but a flaming hog? We’d never of guessed.

We expect to hear more from Bungie on this when these images are officially released sometime soon.


Digg!

That kinda looks like the Gauss turret though…

No it’s some sort of tube leading into that buliding in the backround.

You are stupid. Flamethrower warthog! NO! The flames of the flamethrower don’t spray at an arc like that. That’s something in the background.

Comment by coolguy

i agree with coolboy. the idea of flamethrower warthog is ridiculous

Unless it shoots lava…then no.

DEBUNKED!

Right, after studying the GamePro article, there is another large picture of the two Brute Choppers (not pictured here) that is seemingly the same scene only from a seperate angle (I’m guessing thanks to the nifty little saved film editor). This alternative view shows that the arc of flames is not coming from the Warthog, but is in fact some sort of explosive particle in the background.

Oh well. Farewell, sweet Flame Hog.

Master Cheif’s suit is resistant to fire so bungie wouldn’t do that….

but im guessing the brutes arent tho lol.

The flame thrower is in the game so its possible, we will just have to wait and see.

not a flame warthog its a brute chopper, but if you look at the new video bungie has posted, you can see what looks to be a transport warthog (4seater 2 seats where turet should be)
