Pitch a new Weapon/Vehicle for Halo 5 or 6

The idea here is to pitch a concept for a new weapon or vehicle to 343(if they see this post) for Halo 5 update or to be put into Halo 6. Doesn’t have to be something entirely new variant on another weapon/vehicle. Giving a name for your idea would be a good idea as well.

Kinetic Bow and Arrow- This could be a Brute or UNSC weapon that will explode on impact, it will have a fairly big blast as well to guarantee spartan kills. When you draw the arrow however the bow itself will detect if there is someone under where the arrow will land and sound an alarm. The weapon will have a secondary firing mode as well, letting out a powerful burst of bullets when you tap the bumper if someone is close by. The weapon if used for sniping could be waiting game however since you’ll have to wait for people to get within range for detection but you’ll be able to fire over cover instead of peaking out like with rifles.

(Edit Didn’t know there was already a Cobra*)* Barracuda- A UNSC adaption of the ghost essentially, but with far lighter armor and with heavier weapons. It will play like a ghost in terms of mobility being fast and evasive but ten fold thanks to the minimal armor. For weapons it will fire heavy chain guns but can switch over to heavy SPNKR missiles when in need of extra firepower. This vehicle is meant to be a glass canon able to tear apart nearly every other vehicle with it’s rockets but can’t take any hits itself.

Edit: got a few new ideas

Dragon gunship- A very large UNSC gunship with player controlled artillery cannons similar to scorpion rounds along with automatic chaingun turrets that track enemy players. A very tanky vehicle with lots of firepower and troop carrying capabilities but is also very very slow. Meant to hold down and take over specific zones on a large map as well as give friendlies cover fire and support.

Elite mech- very similar to the Grunt Mech but acts more like mjolnir armor for elites fitting on like the Prototype from Halo legends and can be Covenant, Banished or SOS. It will be very fast and having great jumping abilities while using a enlarged carbine canon, plasma grenade launchers and a mounted energy sword. Has no shields only heavy armor like the wraith and needs to recharge it’s sprint/jump and weapons every so often. Extraordinarily powerful like the Grunt Mech but needs to have it’s cool downs watched closely at all times. Can have camo or flight variants as well.

Predator- A very small forerunner vehicle, smaller and slimmer than a ghost, has four arms coming off the body ending with hover engines, fires twin cleansing beams like the Phaeton Helios but weaker and can switch to scatter shot rounds. The vehicle unlike all others in Halo can climb vertically up walls and hang on ceilings allowing for near perfect area control. But because of it’s size can’t ever be out in the open, is meant as ambush vehicle hanged on walls and ceiling lying in wait.

Predator V2- an alternate idea to the first predator is that this one uses clawed arms to move about and will have a melee attack. I honestly like the first version more though.

I think bows / crossbows in FPS games are over-rated, but that’s just my opinion. Also, there is already a “Cobra”.

Pheaton Demon

  • Legendary Mythic
    Slightly bulkier Pheaton with UNSC aspects to it.
    Cortana had hopes that the Chief would go along with her, seems only fitting that she would build him a powerful vehicle that still had some human touches to it. Demon for the name since that was what the Chief was referred to by others.

I think the Cobra idea would be pretty sweet!!

I think a good idea is a weapon that acts similar to a carbine or needler, but the ammo rounds are acidic and do damage over time before disapearing.

Your still missing vehicles and weapons from previous Halo games but u want us to pitch new ones

So basically the thorn from destiny

Halo 3 Brute mauler and sniper, nuff said.

Removed from site.

I got one. The Needle shot gun. I did one with the scatter shot and the Blood of Suban and it’s nice.

The Grunt-apult

  • Could be configured as a shoulder-mounted heavy weapon or vehicle. - Flings a suicide grunt in a screaming arc. - Proximity and contact detonation - Variants: more grunts per fling, different kinds of explosive charges

> The cobra already exists in Halo Wars. It’s a heavy vehicle with gauss cannon. It was most likely replaced with the Gauss hog.

First Cobra: Halo Wars, 2009
First Gauss Hog: Halo 2, 2004 (also in Halo Wars)

And considering that pretty much every “retired” weapon (featured in a Halo shooter) has been brought back to Halo 5 I don’t think there’s any strong point to make for the Cobra being incompatible to the UNSC sandbox (just because it featured in Halo Wars.) The question is probably more to do with practical game development (how to balance and design the vehicle for FPS multiplayer, would it pay off versus some other idea?)

Removed from site.

A wheeled APC, twice more armor than a warthog, 3/4s of its speed and an unmanned turret with a gatling gun as its main gun and secondary rockets. Also, the Scorpion needs to be thrice as faster; as it stands right now the Scorpion is slower than a WWI tank.

Promethian scout vehicle.
1 seater, 1 light weapon (almost equal to a boltshot)
Would have a sphere shape and have floating pieces around it that would interact with the environment. Somewhat like avoiding a wall.

It would be somewhat armored to light weapons unless you shoot the weapon directly in the “barrel” when it’s aiming at you for a weak spot.

It would have an evading ability similar to the phaeton. It would have 2-4 charges. The vehicle it’s self would be slower than a ghost but have less momentum to its movements.

The bow and arrow are a great idea, it would be even cooler if there were a variant where the arrows didn’t explode and you could go and retrieve the arrows. It would be like a sniper headshot (one hit kill) where as body shots would take about 3 or so.

That sounds pretty bad*ss actually gives elites something to use

Also most people subconsciously take the bow and arrow idea from Crysis/Far Cry 3 and expand upon it. Crysis arrows “have enough kinetic energy to stop a rhino” - Psycho (Michael)

Thanks for letting me know, just changed the name. A magazine fed shotgun also sounds very nice as well.

I want a Guass Warthog with a double-barrelled Guass turret.
