The UNSC weapons of Halo 4
Thu, 09 Aug 2012 5:14p.m.
Much like past Halo games, the UNSC weapons in Halo 4 are meant to be grounded in modern day tech.
They tend to be purpose built with function superseding aesthetics. There are a couple reasons for this – one reason is to make the player feel like an underdog in comparison to the highly futuristic and sophisticated weaponry used by the Covenant and Forerunner enemies.
The other purpose is that it aims to provide a good starting point for new players because they already have some familiarity and understanding of the core weapon roles, making them easily relatable.
Despite the majority of them being similar to modern day military weapons, the weapons of Halo 4 do have several specialised power weapons that aim to convey mankind’s progress when it comes to future tech. These include weapons like the Railgun, Spartan Laser, and Sticky Detonator.
This video is a showcase of the UNSC weapons in Halo 4 in action. For more information on each weapon in the video, check out this official Halo 4 blog post.
