2 new weapons confirmed!

I’m really surprised I haven’t seen a thread like this but this weeks bulletin seems to confirm 2 new weapons:

The Suppressor

And the Boltshot

Both look Promethean and the second seems to be the pistol we saw in the weapon sounds video.

Plus the fact that they have skins seems to suggest they are load-out weapons.

The Suppressor obviously sounds like a automatic weapon, while the boltshot’s name and design suggest a meatier pistol.

Thoughts?

Yeah. Maybe promethean loadout weapons.

So no one is actually interested in the new weapons they are clearly putting right infront of your faces?

Hell whenever we used to get even a tiny glimpse of a new weapon these threads would freak out. There’d be 10 threads for each angle of each screenshot.

And now everyone is busy talking about specializations and which armor doesn’t suck.

I am really disappointed…

Yeah I know. I thought the halo community would be having a fricken -Yoink!- out over 2 new weapons. Come on community. Not good enough.

The first one is called the Promethean Repeater. I forget what the second one is called, but they aren’t new.

Edit: Sorry, it seems they changed the names. They were called something else when they were first shown.

The Suppressor seems like an automatic Primary Promethean Weapon to me.

The Bolt Shot may be a Secondary Promethean Handgun.

The first one is The Suppressor since they referred to it directly as The Suppressor and the second one is The Boltshot, again since they directly referred to it as The Boltshot. These aren’t new but they give us some info on their name and the fact they are load-out weapons.

Reminds me of the Type-52 Pistol from Halo 3

I edited my post. It seems they changed the names (or the first names were simply speculation).

Could somebody please link the bulletin? Can’t find it in the “News” section.

Narghhhhhghhharrrrr exciting stuff! November is inching ever closer!!!

I think the Suppressor will be a nice addition to the Halo 4 sandbox. As for that other thing, I have no idea what its purpose is.

Go nuts

The Boltshot looks Forerunner, albeit somehow less advanced. In the video of the Boltshot it appeared to have a large muzzle flash, though I don’t think it’s a projectile based weapon. It’s hard to say when there’s so little to go on. Heck, just add a blade and it looks exactly like a Brute weapon.
The Suppressor is almost definitely the Promethean equivalent of the AR but it looks to me like it should have better range.

Mmhmm I know exactly what you mean.

“Never-mind these weapons, the most important issue right now is that the continuation of AAs and the introduction of specialisations instead of a return to Halo 2 or Halo 3 gameplay will ruin the game and the overall franchise - specifically multi-player, which after all is all real Halo-fans care about”

…Sad really, especially when so much of what I’ve heard from people who’ve actually gotten to play current builds of the game is positive.

Anyhow, these weapons look absolutely cool and I can’t wait to hear more about them :slight_smile:

Have brutes been confirmed to be out?

> Have brutes been confirmed to be out?

They’ve not been mentioned at all.

:C

i love how the weapon sandbox is growing larger than the typical fanboys waistlines

i just hope that they are all BALANCED

I am very interested in this suppressor weapon. Can’t wait to get more info on the weapon. If acts like I think it acts, I will be using it.
