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.

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.

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 the video game 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.
