Real Life Halo SPNKr

Real Life Halo SPNKr

Builder Jairus of All has spent months putting together a working, life-size version of the massive SPNKr rocket launcher from Halo. The video series shows how he designed and built the incredible replica, while the latest video shows off its rotation action and final assembly. We can’t wait to see it fire rockets.

Working Halo Rail Gun

Working Halo Rail Gun

Inspired by Halo Infinite, Charles from Hacksmith Industries was enlisted to build a weapon that looks like the game’s MA5 assault rifle. Their real-world version uses electromagnetic coils to accelerate and launch projectiles, much like the U.S. Navy’s railgun system. It’s worth watching just for the coil-winding montage.

Halo on Classical Guitar

Halo on Classical Guitar

Despite having come out more than 20 years ago, we still get chills every time the theme music from Halo starts playing on our Xbox Series X. But does it sound as good without the violins and choir? Beyond The Guitar proves that the track is still spectacular even stripped down on solo acoustic guitar.

100-Voice Halo Choir

100-Voice Halo Choir

Vocalist Matthew Van Ness has impressed us with his orchestral vocal covers of the Star Wars and Jurassic Park themes. This time, he did something a little different, but similarly entertaining by turning 100 copies of his voice into the choir from the familiar opening theme from Halo video game series.

Working Halo Energy Sword

Working Halo Energy Sword

The energy sword is one of our go-to weapons in the Halo series. We’ve seen lots of cool replicas of the sword over the years, but they’re usually toys made from plastic. Hacksmith Industries went above and beyond with their working version of the iconic sword, which is basically a quad-blade version of their plasma lightsaber.

NERF LMTD Halo Needler

The Needler is one of our favorite weapons in the Halo universe. With its funky alien looks and vibrant seeker shards, it’s unlike any game weapon before it. Now NERF is making an official blaster based on the in-game weapon. The motorized blaster fires 10 NERF Elite darts in rapid succession, and it lights up brilliantly in display mode.

1000 HP Halo Warthog

1000 HP Halo Warthog

The Warthog from Halo is one of the most iconic vehicles in the history of video games. There have been many replicas built over the years, but none as badass as Hoonigan’s, an off-road race truck with a 1000 hp twin-turbo V8 engine and 4-wheel steering. Here’s the first of 10 episodes showing how they built it.

Destroying a Piano for Halo Infinite

Destroying a Piano for Halo Infinite

During the creation of Halo Infinite the audio team at 343 Industries turned to an unusual method to make some of the game’s sounds. Instead of just playing this piano, they used a hammer, baseball bat, and other tools to demolish it, making some truly dissonant sounds. That dry ice on metal is especially disturbing.

Mariachi Halo Theme

Mariachi Halo Theme

The opening theme music from Halo is best known for its epic, choral sound. But in the hands of the Mariachi Entertainment System, it’s a bit more festive – at least once the horn section kicks in.

NERF Halo Infinite MA40

Inspired by the MA40 assault rifle in Halo Infinite, this official NERF blaster features motorized dart blasting, and the ability to smoothly fire with sequential trigger squeezes. It includes a 10-dart magazine, 10 NERF Elite darts, and an attachable rail riser for mounting accessories. We wish it had a real ammo counter though.

NERF x Halo

NERF x Halo

NERF is showing off a line of toy blasters inspired by Halo. The coolest looking is the MicroShots Needler, which sadly doesn’t shoot homing spikes, followed by a motorized UNSC MA40 assault rifle. There’s also a mini SPNKR, a single shot weapon that holds a pair of darts. All three drop on 10/1/2020, just in time for Halo:Infinite.

Halo Wars 2: War of Wits

Halo Wars 2: War of Wits

Microsoft reminds us that video game commercials don’t always need to be action packed or dramatic. They commissioned a pair of commercials for Halo Wars 2 that sees hero Capt. James Cutter engaging in silly tactical battles with the new villain Atriox.

LEGO Halo SPNKR

LEGO Halo SPNKR

LEGO enthusiast Nick Brick made an incredible life-size version of the M41 SPNKR, the classic rocket launcher from the Halo series. It’s 50.5″ long, weighs 24lb and is made of about 6,000 LEGO pieces. Its double barrel unit is detachable, just like in the games.

Making Halo’s Gravity Hammer

Making Halo’s Gravity Hammer

In one of its most impressive projects yet, Man at Arms: Reforged made a life-size steel replica of the Gravity Hammer, the deadly one-shotting Covenant weapon from Halo 2. The resulting replica measures 6ft. long and weighs an unwieldy 100lb. See it in action at 7:20.
