Note: Astrix means speculation…

Lets get it!

The following weapons are shown in this order in the Halo 5 Guardians multiplayer beta trailer:

  • Assault Rifle
  • Pistol/magnum
  • A scopeless variant of the Battle Rifle

You should add an asterisk to the “Gunnery SGT Buck”, because we aren’t 100% sure who Nathan Fallion is actually voicing.

Fallion has played more than Buck.

Thank so far for all the additions.

Additionally, the “scopeless” BR seen in the Beta Trailer may be an MA5K Carbine rather than a Battle Rifle without a scope.

I’m just really curious why you have a plethora of speculation listed under “confirmed content.” Shouldn’t they be in their own category called “Speculation?” It’s more than a little misleading, even with asterisks.

Yeah, I agree. It’s almost like 3 weapons in the trailer = Half-Life 3 confirmed in Halo 5.

> Additionally, the “scopeless” BR seen in the Beta Trailer may be an MA5K Carbine rather than a Battle Rifle without a scope.

While that’s possible, the weapon looks exactly like a BR with the scope removed. If it were the MA5K, why not, you know, make it look like one?

I’m vouching for this ‘scopeless Battle Rifle’ being an entirely new weapon.

Why? It’s got 72 bullets in one magazine. Check the ammo counter when the Spartan pulls the charging handle.

Could be a new SAW then, as that is the exact amount of ammo a SAW drum magazine holds.

Might just be 72 bullets in reserve. 72 is two full BR clips.

I’m afraid it means customizable weapons… It looks identical to the battle rifle and if it turns out to be the ma5k it would make no sense not to make it look different.

An M4 Assault Rifle and an M4A1 Assault Rifle look virtually identical. You hand them to your average Joe, and they couldn’t tell you the difference. What is the difference, you ask? An M4 has safe, semi, and burst firing modes. An M4A1 has safe, semi, and auto… as well as having a heavier barrel for increased accuracy and heat management. Two rifles that look identical, two completely different capabilities.

Now what was your point?

Maybe, but it would purely be aesthetic. Halo 5 has been promised by 343 to be an Arena shooter with equal starts. Gun attachments wouldn’t be very equal.
