One of the newest weapons in the Halo 4 arsenal is the Railgun and 343 Industries took a little time on Friday to compare its capabilities to other weapons in the Xbox 360 game such as the Spartan Laser and the Brute Shot.

The official designation for the power weapon is the Asymmetric Recoilless Carbine-920 (aka ARC-920) Railgun and it fires an explosive round at ultra-high speeds to deliver a near-instantaneous kinectic and explosive blow to both vehicles and infantry. It's probably best to think of it as a smaller version of the Warthog Gaussgun.

While the Railgun can take out a soft target in one or two shots, it is not as powerful against vehicles as the Spartan Laser. Instead, it is more like the Brute Shot in that its high-speed round can alter a vehicle's direction and possibly flip it over or send it off a cliff.

Currently, the Railgun has to be charged before firing but it only takes approximately half as long as the Spartan Laser. Also, while it does not have a zoom function your aim isn't altered while getting shot at like other zoomed weapons in the Halo series.

Any of these specs for the Railgun could change between now and when the game releases on November 6 but we would expect for it to remain roughly the same

I actually like the sound of this. So you have a long range weapon that can be used to deter vehicles from getting close, but that doesn't insta kill them like the Spartan Laser? I can dig this.

Though if there IS a weapon charge (and no scope), I'd hope that a direct hit on a player would be an insta kill. Since otherwise it's just not remotely as useful as the Sniper rifle at making kills.

So it seems Microsoft key note on monday is going to start off with a 10 minute Halo 4 campaign demo playthrough.

We've also gotten a look at non Spartan humans for the first time, and next to Chief no less.



"You are all so small! Is funny to me!"


edit: A rotated shot of Chief next to the captain guy.

That non spartan guy on the left looks like a marine with an ODST like helmet.

For anyone who missed it, the video they showed at E3.


Apparantly in Halo 4 the UNSC has huge trucks.




I think the Elephant is off in the corner somewhere crying.

A bit short, though I did like that live action stuff they were showing. They certainly proved it will have high production values.


Also, seems confirmed that you'll be fighting with other Spartans in the campaign as your elite mook backup.




Not sure why the Marine has a fabric based ballistic vest when he's probably gonna get shot at with people with plasma guns :P

The marine is wearing what looks like a molle plate carrier designed to hold a ballistic plate on the inside allowing for pouches to be attached externally.

Although more "realistic" I much preferred the aliens inspired plate armor of halos previous especially Reaches marine design.

The thing is, I'm not sure carrying your anti plasma/thermal weapon plate armor in fabric is a good idea. Considering that even if it does stop the shot, your plate holder is gonna you know...burn up

Thats true

Although its probably a lot lighter than the older style plate armor meaning it could be a trade off for maneuverability at the cost of protection.

That's a good point! Now when the grunt sets you on fire with his plasma pistol, you'll be able to run fast enough to jump on him as a flaming human missile!

Also, new video.

YouTube
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

And official site with all sorts of goodies.


Also, new info on that grenade pistol.


-The M363 RPD is a low-profile single-shot weapon that launches a magnetically latched explosive, which the operator can remotely detonate when at a safe distance. Although previously manufactured in low quantities, this weapon’s size and ease-of-transportability has made it ubiquitous in the years which followed the Covenant War.



It kinda sounds like the grenade launcher from Halo Reach with remote detonation, except it has the ability to stick on targets.

Glad Cortana's VA hasn't changed after all.

:P

Look at it this way the lighter the load your carrying the better your chances of dodging said plasma bolts besides if you want to go into the finer details most modern military plate carrier are made from ultra strong fire resistant material (1000d codura) that doesn't burn in the combustible sense.

Anyway love the new assault rifle sound its very meaty and overall I'm surprisingly impressed with the gameplay video above.

Oh yeah, I love the sound of the AR to. Very meaty and nasty sounding.


though looking closer at that mega truck, I'm noticing it has firing ports on the top, for infantry to shoot from. It seems like you're going to get to play around with this thing.




I REALLY hope we get to drive this in campaign, and use it in multiplayer.

My initial thought on Cortana's last line was that she was talking to the Chief, but perhaps it's directed toward Didact or whatever enemy AI she's fighting against (possibly trying to control her)?
