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.
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.
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 the video game 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.
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.
